Who is the quickest player on our books?

We all know that Henry is rapid with and of course without the ball, but I recon Kolo could take him in the old 100 metre dash.

Yeah maybe, although Henry runs with the ball more, whereas Kolo runs without mostly.

Still it's a good thing we have such fast players. Freddie is normally very fast also.

Yeah I think Ljungberg is quickest over 10 yards or soemthing.
Henry,Ljungberg,Clichy,Toure are all quick players.

Toure said in an interview that he was 3rd fastest over 100m and that next year he wanted to improve on that and come 1st.

Kolo could take Clichy over 100. The article described the 40 metre sprints that Wenger does in training and so Clichy would be good at the smaller distance whereas Kolo's power would come through in the latter stages. Henry still wins it though.

Freddie is the quickest over 5 yards - he's a nipper, and doesn't have the power to maintain and increase his speed further like Kolo or Thierry.

Bergkamp is suprisingly fast, as are Gilberto and Sol Campbell. Vieira and Kanu when in stride aren't as slow as people think too.

2 years ago Bergkamp was fastest over 100m with Ljungberg 2nd and Henry 3rd
Henry had the best acceleration and was quickest over 50m with Ljungberg again second and Bergkamp 3rd fastest.

Since then Bergkamp has aged a bit but watching his goal v Birmingham he still looks quick.
Toure has since joined so maybe they can have a go in training and we'll know for sure!

Gilberto and Vieira's pace is nothing to be sneezed at. Once they get running, they REALLY get running. ;D

henry
ljungberg
toure
clichy
pennant (or if he wasnt there cole)

I think it's definitely Henry followed by Clichy. Toure's fast as well. But I think the speed of Ljungberg and Cole is slightly overrated. Vieira is quick as well.

Nah Ljungberg and Ashley Cole are very fast.

If anything, Cole's speed is underrated. :?

Ljungberg and Cole cannot run at top speed longer than 20 metres, while Henry and Toure's power and strength strides them along.
