Henry lived and breathed Arsenal – He MUST return some day

There will hardly ever be another Henry! by KM

A magnificent career has come to an end ladies and gentlemen! The one true King of Highbury and the Arsenal has retired. Words will never be enough to describe how much this man has contributed to Arsenals history and one of it’s most successful periods ever.

He scored so many goals, it’s hard to pick out just a few! I love the one where he chipped the ball and fired past Bartes. Ah the good times, when we were dominating United. We had players with character than. We had real leaders and we had players that you could always rely on when you are in trouble.

Campbell IS ready for Arsenal chance says Gunners legend

We heard the other day that Joel Campbell should be playing for Arsenal next season, but that statement came from the young striker’s father so you could be forgiven for assuming a little touch of bias in his opinion. But if the Costa Rica international was worried about how his Arsenal credentials were viewed by those that matter, he should be feeling a lot better today.

If you are looking for a striker whose opinions matter to Arsenal fans, you could not do better than the club’s all time leading scorer Thierry Henry. The mercurial Frenchman is currently working for the BBC on their World Cup punditry team, where he is showing the same coolness and cut and thrust as he did for the Gunners on the pitch.

Wenger – Walcott is now the complete player for Arsenal

The Arsenal winger Theo Walcott may only be 23 years old, but amazingly the win over Sunderland this weekend was his 250th game for the Gunners. The Londoner has drastically improved this season and has already netted 18 goals (5 more than his previous best) this season, and has just signed a new long term contract with the club.

His manager Arsene Wenger is more than pleased with his progress. “It’s unbelievable. I believe what this season shows is the remarkable evolution of Theo Walcott,” Wenger said on Arsenal.com.

“He’s a complete player today and his transformation is absolutely sensational.

Are Arsenal being punished by the Deins?

David Dein was an integral figure in the rise to dominance of Arsenal in the last 30 years. He was vice-chairman of the Gunners between 1983 and 2007 but had to leave the club for reasons that are arguable. There is a school of thought that believes that Dein was forced out of Arsenal and that his son, Darren, is pursuing a vendetta against the club or the current board now.

King Henry could return to Arsenal

The King’s Return by AH

Thierry Henry has spoken out and told SkySports that he wants to return to Arsenal for a 3rd time, whether it be as a player or a coach.

The Frenchman is quoted as saying;
“I would like to go back to England with Arsenal for sure.”

Thierry is an example of someone who truly loves the club and someone who appreciates his worship. Henry is loyal to Arsenal, despite no longer being a player for us, there is no doubting that he would jump at every chance to become part of this club once again.

Who is really loyal to Arsenal?

Where has all the loyalty gone? by AH
Gone are the days where it was often to see ‘one club’ players who stuck to their first club and often grew attached to the club as a fan.

Tony Adams is the perfect example that everyone thinks of because he was the heart and base of the famous successive Arsenal teams. His passion, strength and spirit held the team together, pushed us all the way and he was almost like a second manager to the team.
Thierry Henry may not be a ‘one club’ player, however his love for the club is still recognised and he has said many times that he is a fan, something that doesn’t seem to matter to Van Persie. Remember that picture you took Robin? You know the one with ‘Number 1 Fan’ displayed across your Arsenal shirt…

Arsenal’s greatest ever striker has hailed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as the next big star to step up for the Gunners. We’ve all been impressed by the 18-year old Englishman. He has stepped up when called up for the first team and has proved to be one of the most important player on the pitch. Henry shares this view, here’s what he had to say: “Alex Chamberlain is really good.

“He reminds me of himself and no-one else. He is writing his own story.

Martin Jol: Van Persie is another Thierry Henry

The Dutch manager Martin Jol saw his Fulham team manage to stop Robin Van Persie from scoring, but he still thinks that his fellow countryman is as good a striker as the Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Jol said after the game yesterday: “He is another Thierry Henry. He is very productive. The only chance he had to show his class was the shot that was cleared off the line. But otherwise we handled him well.

“You have to avoid the crosses to him and cross out the passes to him. He is not known for his heading in Holland. But he has scored 31 league goals in 30 games.

Arsenal rumours Aug 1st – Jagielka, Jarvis, Mata, Fabregas and Thierry Henry!

The last month of the transfer window begins with some surprising Arsenal transfer news. It has already been confirmed that the Gunners have made an official opening bid for Everton’s Phil Jagielka, and his defensive partner at Goodison Park, Leighton Baines, is not surprised that Wenger is keen on “Jagas”.

He said: “It’s not a surprise to me that a top club would want a player like Phil because he’s fantastic.

“He’s one of the top three or four defenders that the country’s got. It’s no surprise. But we’d like to hold on to him if we can.”

The “New Thierry Henry” is keen on Arsenal link

There is a new man on Arsene Wenger’s list of French striker’s that are keen to move to the Emirates. The St. Etienne hitman Emmanuel Riviere has been likened to the Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, and he would love to follow in his footsteps by joining the Gunners.

According to the Mail, Riviere has also been linked with Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool, but it looks like he would prefer to go to The Emirates than Anfield. He said: “I am flattered to be linked with the clubs mentioned. I am a young player, so to be linked with Arsenal is fantastic for me.

Arsenal rumours 18th Jan – Dunne, Cahill, Ciani and Thierry Henry

We have a couple of new interesting Arsenal transfer rumours arriving today, and they all seem to be quite possible for a change!

Owen Coyle said yesterday that he had not received any bid from Arsene Wenger for the big Bolton defender Gary Cahill and he doubted very much whether Cahill wuld be moving away from the Reebok before next summer. So, other than Christopher Samba, it was thought that there were no other possible Premiership centre-backs for Arsenal to target this month.

Thierry Henry scores first goal for Red Bulls (video)

They are looking certainties for the play-offs and have been improving rapidly lately, winning three of their last four games.
