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.'

Brilliant Henry on the spot Arsenal is the only way to go
oh what a hero, utter *****
Spurs, you're still bitter than Henry joined in with the Arsenal fans in laughing at Tottenham :P
Shame the Chavs had to play 120 mins last night. hehehehe
i ******** love this guy! cant wait for him to be back and firing next year.
Hatespur, that will no doubt be the excuse when we slap their little hineys on Sunday.
I don't care what excuse they use Rock. As long as they need to use one:)
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.
He is Greatm, the most honest player I have seen recently and the Best Player in the world
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."
£50 mill is that all ? cheeky to think Wenger would sell to some burberry clad chavs, don't they know Thierry has more class ! and what an earth is a spuddie doing here ? last time i check they aren't even in a european placing in the league ! HAHA
gonna be a good game on sunday methinks! henry loves your club simple as that !
He is a true gooner
Haha, seriously Puregold...Reading > Tottenham, nuff said.
in the words of the famous Zammo........"just say no"! or en francais the words of Henry "dire juste non"...
fran merida
Anyone heard anything from k_chelski ??!
i adore th14 he is the best player in the world and he ll bang the emirates with goals when he returns next season
Henry is class. 50 mill I would be happy to.
I loved when he was showing the badge and thumping his chest when he scored against the chavs a couple of years back. Arsenal through and through, LIVING LEGEND!
Chelski are garbage, all the money they want and still can't win champions league
I love thierry henry!
Well Chelsea aren't really garbage though the money they spent to reach where they are is ridiculous. Money doesn't justify position. Any back to the topic of Henry I am supprised that he has never won player of the year or didn't win it last year for that matter so stupid defender won it if I remember correctly.
Thats why you are our darling HENRY. You worth more than 50mill pounds. I know you eat Arsenal, sleep Arsenal and drean Arsenal
Althought you are out of the game over the weekend with Chelsea for every goal scored please kiss the badge Henry
"Anyone heard anything from k_chelski ??! TR7" That's true, where the hell is k_chelski??!?!
Still think he is the best player i the world no matter what united can have ronaldo and milan can have kaka and barca can have ronaldiniho i would swap him for noone he doesnt only score great goals he creates them too. Oh and by the way i didnt add any chelski players into that list because they dont have a talisman hahahahahahahaha
yep, I miss seeing our man in full flight... it feels like absolute ages since we've seen him - oh that's because it has been blo*ody ages!
Best striker in the world, cant deny it & I'm a big Drogba fan, naturaly..if you win anything next season he'll be a big part of it once again
Big Drogba fan? Who? oh yeah that ponce that dives more than an olympic swimmer. He doesnt get anywhere near the quality of Thierry
Try tellin Senderos that mate
Yeah i would but senderos would tell me that it would be fine if the linesmen could do there job i.e carling cup final
