By far the most famous player to leave Arsenal, Thierry Henry will be remembered for all the goals he scored for Arsenal, for all the small battles he won for Arsenal in the last 8 years or so he was there. Number 14 will no longer be the same.
Now would he be missed? Yes and No. Yes to some extent as he was the experienced voice to calm down the young nerves of Persie, Adebayor, Fabregas and the other young brigade. No because, Arsenal played more than half the season without him and did a decent job out of it. And to be very frank if there is one key player in the team today it has to be Fabregas and not Henry.
The partnership of Arsene and Henry comes to an end this season. And it leaves a lot of doubt in the minds of Arsenal fans whether Arsene will also leave the club, come the end of the season when his contract ends.
It will not be the same again in Emirates stadium where Henry walked out with the captain’s armband. Lets wait and see what Arsenal do with this 16 million pounds. Arsenal will surely miss Henry but the English football will also lose a star player who was one of the most skillful players in the league.
Let me wish Henry for the best of the rest of his career in Barca except against Arsenal. And thanks a lot for all those wonderful memories.
