“When you start supporting a football club, you don’t support it because of the trophies, or a player, or history. You support it because you found yourself somewhere there, you found a place where you completely belong.”
Sad day for football, sun has set on the career of one of the best player the world has ever seen. Won everything there is to be one in the game. Made me love the beautiful game, and Arsenal. #MerciThierry
Thierry Henry: Awards and honours during the time at Arsenal
Henry was named both the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year. His rising status as one of the world’s best footballers was affirmed when he emerged runner-up for the 2003 FIFA World Player of the Year award.
Apart from being named for the second year running as the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year, Henry emerged once again as the runner-up for 2004 FIFA World Player of the Year award. With 39 goals scored in all competitions, the Frenchman led the league in goals scored and won the European Golden Boot.
Arsenal won the FA Cup (the Final of which Henry missed through injury). Henry maintained his reputation as one of Europe’s most feared strikers as he led the league in scoring, and with 31 goals in all competitions, he was the co-recipient (with Diego Forlán) of the European Golden Boot.
He completed the season as the league’s top goal-scorer, was voted the FWA Footballer of the Year for the third time in his career, and was selected in the FIFA World XI.

Why do people pick on nerds? Some of us are armed with the master sword, key blades, Attack on Titan swords, and the whole Harry Potter series. Do you really want to risk getting one of those shoved up your asshole?
Arsène Wenger is not bigger than Arsenal but Arsenal are bigger because of Arsène Wenger. Arsene has seen around 187 managers shuffled in the premier league, but ze boss still stands tall. #OneArseneWenger
