I think that there are not enough threads on Henry so I'm starting one more on this overrated player, who must just thank Zidane and Arsenal. :yawn:

Nice one toni, here's a bit of info for you.

Here's his stats in his best competition (the premiership) away from home:
This season he's scored in three away games Norwich, Palace and Spurs.
He's scored 15 is it altogether? Hence 12 at Highbury.
Last season in 18 away games, he scored 8 goals in 6 games, most in the first half of the season. Boro, Wolves, Blackburn, Villa (2), Leeds (2), Charlton.
World Player Of The Year?
Now who's havin' a larf?;)

I don't get your point, are you over-rating him or not ? :tongue:

Oh, so he has to be the "English" Del Piero, executioner of the mighty Siena and Empoli and ace of the 11-meters shots. :D

like Shevchenko, he does get praise for stuff other than football skill, like not being a mincing poof like del Piero, RvN, Figo, Deco etc.
It's nostalgia for the days when a lot of Juve, Madrid and ManUre's present players would have been blubbering from a hospital bed after being dealt with by the Gentiles, Tommy Smiths, Mick Harfords, Horst Hrubresh, Redondos and other such players.

How many threads do you have to open about him? I remember when you compared him to Di Viao? Do you still think Di Viao is better?

I think he is probably under-rated by Fred and Toni, they seem to think he only plays well away of he scores goals. :shades:

No, to be exact, I thought and still think that they are two twins, one is black, the other is white. If Di Vaio had Zidane or Arsenal behind him he would be the same.
Henry will never leave Arsenal...for no reason, he found the paradise, aplace where he can be considered one of the best players in the world without deserving this title! :wth:

Milan are not Sheva-reliant, Inter are not Adriano-reliant etc. The forwards score cause they are the terminal of the team. Replace Henry with X and Arsenal will be X-reliant according to the fans.

In that case every forward is 'overrated' :pp

Sheva would not have won the Ballon D'or if it wasn't for the Milan team :jester:

Damn , Jern, you're everywhere...sometimes I wonder if Arsenal actually pay you to defend/promote their image at extratime....
I just speak as i see it, if it looks like i am promoting the Arsenal that means that the management are currently doing a good job. ;)

Of course, football is a team sport. Yet, the English way of playing, something you are proud of, enhance the qualities of players like Henry.
