Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry spent eight glorious years with the Gunners and under the astute guidance of compatriot Arsene Wenger, the French striker made a phenomenal impact on English football. Signed for £10.5 million in 1999 after an ill-fated spell in Italy with Juventus, Henry quickly found his feet in London and once Wenger had converted him from a winger into a striker, the stage was set for a love affair which was to rewrite the Arsenal record books. With Henry spearheading the attack, the Gunners won the Premiership title in both 2002 and 2004 and the FA Cup in 2002, 2003 and 2005. His sensational performances for Arsenal were also rewarded with a deluge of awards. He won back-to-back PFA Player of the Year Wards in 2003 and 2004 and was also a three-times Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year. He won the European Golden Boot in both 2004 and 2005 and was the Premiership's top scorer in no less than four separate seasons. Henry left Arsenal for Spain and Barcelona in the summer of 2007 with his place in Gunners folklore guaranteed. In total, the flying Frenchman scored an amazing 226 goals in 369 appearances in the famous red and white shirt.
