Other options offensively...


Seventh touch, seventh heaven; a surreal, sensational "supporter's" goal: it may sound stupid but I had tears in my eyes after that goal and the reaction of TH12 once 14, AW and the crowd...including the Leeds fans, credit to them. "Thierry is a special player and what is good for the young players at the club is that a guy who has done it all comes and prepares 100 per cent, warms up, is focused and motivated, and comes on with an immense desire to do well... He was already a legend here and now he has added a bit more to the story. It was a very happy dressing room afterwards because the players were very happy when he decided to come back. He gives us other options offensively as well... As for Thierry's goal, it was a little bit like a dream. It's the kind of football story you tell to children because our game is not often like that. But sometimes it happens and it happened for Thierry." (From Arsenal's 'Manager's email' newsletter.)

Thierry Henry pioneered (in the UK) the concept of playing on the opposite wing (he's right footed but plays on the left), you'd have thought the Leeds defender would have got tighter to him wouldn't you! (runs and hides)

I love Robert Pires tweet that he is still training and still fit!
