    Apologies if there is a similar thread but I couldn't quite find what I was looking for...

    My aim is for this thread to be a sort of compilation of Arsenal legends doing their stuff both at Arsenal and at other clubs before or since their Arsenal days. Inspired by this video:

    I always had it in my mind that Henry was a god at Arsenal and then his level slipped a bit at Barca before he left in 2010 but I thought I'd double check...and boy was I wrong :lol:

    The guy was retardedly good at everything bar possibly heading the ball. Pace? Check. Dribbling? Check. Off the ball runs? Check. Finishing from literally any situation? Check. Elite first touch? Check. I could go on...

    Also of note, he played in the same front line as Ronaldinho, Eto'o and Messi FFS :lol: Imagine being a defender and seeing that forward line :facepalm:

    Still think their 2009 team is their best, over any that came after it...was heartbroken when Henry left, but was happy he got his Champions League...wish it was with us though.

    Was still a superb player after leaving us, just not as good as his peak with us.

    That team with Etoo, Henry and Messi was one of the most OP teams in history.

    Can't think of a great many footballers better than prime Arsenal Henry.

    Henry had an all-time career, even scored the main goal in the greatest football ad of all time!

    The best two are Henry and Van Persie. So happy that I've witnessed how they played

    Riou Non-Stop Nostalgia of my fav matches as a Arsenal fan, and in my opinion our most impressive victory of our 2006 Champions League run.

    The Madrid games were great, but looking at that Real Madrid team, I would always back us, their defence was very had a very young Ramos (who Henry destroyed in both games) and a VERY injury prone Woodgate that was one quick turn from being out for the season (which I think actually happened to him in the first leg!) they had some top forwards, but not a truly top Real Madrid team from pre and post 2006...Thomas Gravesen was their DM for goodness sake :lol:

    The players that appeared against us over the two legs for Juventus were...Buffon, Thuram, Cannavaro, Zambrotta, Chiellini, Vieira, Nedved, Emerson, Camoranesi, Mutu, Del Piero, Trezeguet and Ibra...some real top players, all over the pitch, and we beat them over the two legs pretty convincingly...was so proud of our players after this game...

    ...extra, Cesc's performance that day...up against two top quality CMs, one being our best ever central midfielder...Cesc was just quality.
