    Tir Na Nog In Big Trouble If He Speaks

    Thierry Henry has announced his retirement from professional football. He has announced this on his official facebook page. <a class="postlink" href="" onclick=";return false;"></a>

    He'll now be joining SKY Sports as a pundit in 2015.

    Excuse me while I go for a cry. :cry:

    We are not and have never been worthy. The greatest Arsenal has ever seen will no longer lace up his boots to play the beautiful game.

    Great player, great professional, great guy.

    Looking forward to his inputs on Sky, but please do not be biased towards us Titi :D

    I'll take a bow to the greatest ever CF, I had the pleasure to be watching, at his very best. Unbelievable player, he's simply had everything.

    Don't know if there's ever going to be another CF like him.

    Bit gutted, I was hoping he would return here for six months so him and Wenger could return to Monaco together in the UCL.

    My footballing hero. Absolute pleasure to watch him play and hopefully he's on the sidelines for us soon.

    Best striker I've personally ever seen in my time alive and greatest player of the premier league era with ease.

    Can't say it's the best forward I've seen in person but he's certainly up there. Easily one of my favourite players of all time though, such a **** but in the good way.

    Thanks for the memories Thierry, hopefully there will be more to come with a future return to the club in a coaching capacity. Meanwhile it's quite good to see an addition to Sky Sports of a player from the AW era, not United/Liverpool/Spuds and the Paul Merson's of the world who have a little axe to grind being forgotten a bit due to the way AW changed the club.

    Always liked him on Sky looking forward to seeing him on s weekly basis.

    Such a player always felt he was going to do something to make the difference in games.

    The man that made me truly love the game. Thanks for all the memories.

    Going to be great to get his opinions every week thats for sure. Hopefully the dream of him coming back to Arsenal as a coach will still happen eventually.

    Its impossible to fully explain what made him great as apart from the skills, goals and assists he was also a very entertaining player to watch. Only Ronaldo 9 (ladyboy edition) is comparable as a striker in the modern era and personally I rate Henry higher. Bergkamp-Henry also has to be the best PL strike partnership ever.

    He's a good pundit from what I've seen but that's a total waste IMO. He should be back at the club as a coach working with the strikers god knows Danny could learn a thing or 2 from him. Sitting around on match days talking to wankers like Jamie Redknapp and Rio is a complete and utter waste of time for someone with potentially so much to contribute.

    Agreed Mastadon.

    Couldnt agree more. I'm honestly surprised that he isnt coming back to help out AFC especially considering he recently came out talking about how he wanted to help us win the CL.

    Maybe with the extra free time and the fact that Sky will likely have him breaking down our games, he see alot more of us, will quickly get fed up, and then he'll bang Arsène's door down and demand to mentor Danny, Ox and Theo.

    The true epitome of what it meant to be an Arsenal footballer.

    What an amazing career. While the current "stats kings" might be Ronaldo and Messi, Henry is a throwback to a purer era of football. He is the King.

    Our board better be doing everything humanly possible to bring Henry back home in whatever role he feels is suitable

    I remember when he left us for Barca in 2007 I felt even worse than when we lost the CL final the year before. I doubt I'll have such strong feelings towards one player ever again.

    Hope we bring him back soon, he'll be a great addition to the Sky panel but eventually he'll want to become a coach and I'd hate to see him do that at some other team.

    Hopefully this is in our future, it sounds likely from how he speaks.

    Would love to see Bergkamp (with De Boer) and Titi come back to the club. The Dutch influence is already there in our youth structures.

    Thierry Henry is arguably the greatest Arsenal player ever and one of the best strikers I have ever seen. Congratulations on an outstanding career!
