Henry Loves Fratton Park

Henry Loves Fratton Park

Thierry Henry has revealed that, Highbury aside, Fratton Park is one of his favorite places to play.

While the stadium may not be of the highest quality, the fans certainly are, and the volume of the support is outrageous no matter what the scoreline.

This is something Henry appreciates.

'For me, though, Fratton Park would be right up there as another of my favourite grounds.

'Portsmouth is a remarkable place. I know of no other club where, despite 5-1 down in our FA Cup sixth round match two years ago, the home fans would have been supporting their team so vocally.

'It would happen only in English football.'

In the 5-1 FA Cup thrashing, Henry had a stormer of a game and was given a standing ovation by the Pompey fans, accompanied by a
rousing rendition of 'HENRY, We're gunna sign Henry' Thierry then did a lap of the ground wearing a Portsmouth shirt.

The two seem to have a good relationship.

Henry to Portsmouth in his twilight years??
