Henry v Utd: Moment Of The Season

Henry v Utd: Moment Of The Season

Thierry Henry's last gasp winner at Ashburton Grove over old enemies, Manchester United, has been named as the readers of Vital Arsenal 'Moment of the season'.

In a campaign with little to be enthusiastic about (although the bigger picture is the more important factor) a victory against our old rivals is always one to remember, but fighting back from a goal down in the last ten minutes to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat made this match particularly special.

The first game between the two at our new home was a rare occasion that a match of this magnitude actually lived up to the over-hype continually dished out by the Sky Sports network, and if you take the match at face value, not looking at the overall outcome of the season (Trust us to beat Man Utd twice and still not challenge for the title) then this game of football provides a truly special memory.

A battling Cesc Fabregas emerges with the ball in the middle of the park and feeds it out wide to Eboue, a quick one-two with Rosicky finds the Ivorian with just enough space to whip in a sumptuous Beckham-esque cross (This boy loves to assists on THE most very special goals) finding the barnett of the Arsenal captain. Not known for his heading ability, the French talisman rose to meet the cross with a perfectly placed header. van Der Sar left with no chance. 2-1. Last minute. Man Utd. Pandemonium.

Martin Tyler sums it up best - 'The biggest of games, the biggest of names. It's Henry.'
