Thierry Comes Home

Arsenal has secured the services of Thierry Henry on a 2 month loan while he is on break from the Red Bulls of the MLS.  Henry is the all-time leading goalscorer at Arsenal so fans went bananas when he stepped on the field yesterday against Leeds.  He came on in the 68th minute with the game scoreless and ten minutes later had sent the stadium into raptures by slotting home the winner.  Watch here.

  1. great illustration of how the master makes the difficult appear easy. All the prior shots were incredible, great footwork on the approach but wide on the shot. his quick touches look like a warm up move and the next thing you (and the goalie) know the ball's ricocheting off the net.

  2. yes, exactly.
    I just watched, this link that covers 25 of his greatest goals while at Arsenal.
    He makes putting the ball in the goal look effortless.
