He's Done It Again, He's Done It Agaaaaiiinnnn...

Back when Thierry Henry returned to Arsenal many fans said it was a big mistake, "never go back", "his legs have gone" and of course "sentiment doesn`t kick balls and score goals" (sorry Tim .. lol).

Thierry Henry laid that worry immediately to rest by knocking Leeds United out of the FA Cup, scoring a stunning goal within the first ten minutes of his return. It was a night of pure emotion, unbridled joy for Arsenal fans everywhere.

Of course he had his detractors "It was only Leeds United".

Well after playing a nice little cameo in the 7-1 demolition of Blackburn last week, the master was at it again, with undoubtedly one of his most important contributions to Arsenal football club in recent memory.

As we fight tooth and to qualify for the Champions League next season we simply needed to win as both Liverpool and Chelsea dropped points today, and with Newcastle and Spurs facing off this evening, 3 points was a must.

However in typical Arsenal fashion we gave a comical goal away. Per Mertesacker slipping on a terrible Stadium of Light pitch to leave Sunderland with a simple goal.

The big German had to be replaced by Aaron Ramsey. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise as almost immediately the Welshman equalised.

The just when we needed him most with only seconds left on the clock, the biggest legend ever to grace the famous red and white popped up with one of the most important goals of his career.

If he hadn`t laid the worries to rest by now then this was him hammering the nails in the coffin, dropping it in the grave, JCBing it over with earth and then laying a wreath atop the headstone.

Thank you Thierry, you`ll never be forgotten.

Credit to Arshavin too. Top bombing there. All three substitutions had a massive say in this game. Granted Rambo was a forced sub but Wenger could have brought Coqulean on! Well played all round on a very difficult tie.

Nicely said Rocky - even Thierry's cameo goal against Blackburn is the one that puts us ahead of Chelsea currently.

Thierry Henry is one of the few players in the world who can come back to his club long after his prime and not only does he not taint his legend, he in fact adds to it massively. I'd love to win the FA Cup and get 4th this season, mostly because I love Arsenal and want us to do well, but part of me wants his contribution to mean something!
