Henry v Spurs - Remembered

Henry v Spurs - Remembered

This weekend see's the Arsenal take on Tottenham at Highbury for the final time.

This fixture is always passionate to say the least, but this season has the added spice of being the final ever game between the two at the Home Of Football AND possibly being the 4th Champion's League place decider. Come on!!!

Cast you minds back.

Date: 16th November 2002

Place: Highbury, aka The Home Of Football.

Visitors: Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal were dominant that day, casting Spurs aside in a 3-0 demolition, which could have been more with the Gunners actually finding the net on five occasions, two being ruled out for narrow offsides.

The goals that day came from Wiltord, Ljungberg and an awesome goal, that was later voted the goal of the season, from Thierry Henry.

Thierry picked the ball up 20 yards from his own net, he was quickly on his way, leaving the Spurs midfield for dead, then skinning their entire defence before beautifully bending the ball home with his left peg, a truly unreal strike.

Having just ran the length of the pitch to score, he did the return leg to celebrate, on his knee's, in front of the Spurs fans (see article picture), something he later admitted wasn't the best idea, not because it upset anyone but because he was completly knackered for the next 15 minutes.

Anyway, enough with all the talking, you want to see the goal, right?

Well here it is.......

Thierry Henry Wonder Goal v Spurs.


It will take a few minutes to load, but we all know it's worth it.

Sol Campbell has had a ***** season and does not deserve to go on merit, King has had a great season and does need to go, so do one. Cole I am gutted that he has been injured cos all we have is Bridge left back for England. You are a complete ****, but then again what more would anyone expect from a bunch of french supporting ****s

The performance by spurs against M.U. was first class but this time the result went against them. It is bad luck that King will be missing and that will help us. Why get upset, there is always next year and the year after that. Arsenal will make the C.L. next year and tthe year after that. Perhaps one day Spurs will be there but it takes time for the jewish community to raise enough money to buy more players for Spurs as we all know. So come on big boys dry your tears, and cheer on the Gunners we will let you.
