Thierry Henry On His Way

Thierry Henry On His Way

Thierry Henry has been the victim of heavy criticism, particularly
from Chelski and Spurs fans. Comments like, 'he's negative and scared to go forward' or 'he doesn't care' have been issued towards him.

However, Le God has started to 'come right' eventually. His goal against Porto also proved the myth 'he can't use his head' completely false. In that match he also set up van Persie (only for him to shank) and Hleb (who converted). His positive approach and incredibly creative mind were on display against Porto.

Henry is like a snowball rolling down a snow-covered hill. It gets bigger and bigger. Henry gets better and better. Once he starts only the end of the season can stop him.

We gooners can look forward to seeing ''the best of the best'' at his
peak. It will also encourage the likes of Eboue, Gallas, Hleb, Rosicky and Fabregas to come forward.

The reason why Henry is the best in the world is not because of his
finishing ability alone. (Klose and Ibrahimovic could match him in that department) It is his ability to set other players up.

So expect a hack from Rosicky, Toure and others. An exciting time for us gooners!

Please back up by facts how many times he has scored with his head. And then tell me he can score with his head!! I would say it is less than 10 times without doing any research and divide thet with howmany seasons he has had and you will get the worst ratio in prem History. So do not brag about henry scoring with his head!! How ever good he is he cannot head the ball and facts back thwt up you dreamer!!

Another point Klose and Ibremovich are not a patch on Henry!! I did not see either finish top scorer in any top league on a consistent basis! Is that the best you could come up with when there are great marksman like Shevchenko, Van nestelroy, Owen, Raul, Shearer. Lineker, Rush, Klinsmann. Shows your Poor knowledge of world football!! What a pointless CRAP article!!

You argument is nonsense. To back up your own so called facts you would also have to know how many attempts on goal he has had with his head. For arguments sake lets say he has only scored ten goals with his head, but if he has only had the crosses to have 15 headed attempts on goal that would suggest he is excellent with his head would it not?? Just because we don't play the sort of football that means Henry doesnt use his head, doesnt mean he cant. To assume will make you look like a fool.

Nonsense!! Another point what is his ratio of attemted headers to goals scored??!! Also he has often opted not to use his head when heading would be the easiest option. Henry is a top player but he cannot head the ball Even die hard Arse fans know that rocks!!

How may has he scored for France and how many assists has he had with his head and how many headers does he win from goal kicks and set peices. And regarding style of play... Arsenal play with out and out wingers and full backs pushing forward and you tell me theres no crosses coming in?? Ok not all in the air but a fair share. And because Henry CANNOT HEAD A BALL you have to maybe play it on the deck sometimes. How many goals did Kanu get with his head I wonder??

Henry chooses no to head when that is the easiest option???????? You have just made that up to try and back up your argument. Thats the biggest pile of nonsense I've ever heard. And you first point was my point you tool. You have no idea of his attempts to scoring ratio so don't even pretend you do!

He scores 2 goals with his head and he is a master, Now you would not get that reaction if he played for England. Infact I would bet he has scored less than 5 times with his head in Prem but still that is awesome hey mate!!! cloud coockoo land as usuall!!

Never said that, I just said he can head a ball, as his last two goals have shown, just because WE don't play the HOOF game (unlike some)and the need for heading the ball does arrive in goal scoring situations all the time doesnt me we can't.
