Henry: I Kiss The Badge vs Chelsea

Henry: I Kiss The Badge vs Chelsea

In the coming days leading up to the clash vs Chelsea at Ashburton Grove, there has been, and will continue to be, stories flying around about various clashes and incidents between the two clubs over the years. The latest being the recollection of Chelsea's audacious attempt to lure the talisman, Thierry Henry, to the bridge.

Thierry Henry claims he knew that Chelsea made an astonishing £50 million bid for the French record breaker, and admitted that it felt good.

However, the Arsenal captain maintains that he is an Arsenal man through and through and even performs a little ritual to show his love for the red and white.

When asked if he'd heard about the bid he said, 'Yes, I knew that. And it felt great.'

'But I am an Arsenal player and that was that. And every time I scored against Chelsea after that, I kissed the badge to show where my heart lies.'

Nice to see that our Ashley has learned to play football the right way since he left us. All that time nurturing his attacking prowess and all he needs to do now is lump it 100 yards to Drogba's balding beads. Wenger must be shaking his swede in despair.

Big up TH14! Talking of excuses guys, cant you already hear Mourinho post-match?: "Well. No I cannot say that it is a fair result. When you play like Arsenal did and you win I cannot say that this is correct. We were the better team - especially because we are trying hard for 4 trophies. We are not a club that can be happy to stay at number four in the table. This is a luxury for others. But for Chelsea, no."
