Henry: We Didn't Want To Leave

As the final day at Highbury drew to a close, two lone figures where left on the pitch.

Thierry Henry & Ashley Cole rather symbolically didn't want to leave the pitch after sharing some wonderful times at 'The Home Of Football',

Henry takes up the story.

“My celebration said it all,” said the ground’s most prolific striker. “I kissed the ground goodbye.”

“I think it's was a bit strange everyone left like that,” he said.

“But at the end of the day I think some of the players in the team are really young and haven't won a lot here, so maybe it was less special for them.

“But Dennis [Bergkamp] is still here, I'm still here, Ashley [Cole] was there. People who played a long time here were sitting there enjoying it. Me and Ashley were saying to ourselves ‘we don't want to leave’. Highbury is just a special place.”

Make of that what you will.

I think he will stay. Nothing to do with what he said, I just have a feeling.

I wonder if the new ground will end up being as imposing as Highbury?

I can sense the overwhelming emotional attachment that TH, AC, DB, AW and everyone else feel towards Higbury.

I think the new ground will become even more imposing than Highbury over time. It's been designed with the acoustics in mind with closed corners which bounce back the sound, as opposed to sound being lost out the corners. I think its going to be electric. Still going to miss Highbury though - thanks for the memories!
