Stop double posting, OP.

What you are witnessing right now in Cristiano and Messi is something you probably won't witness again in a while and that is two genuine world class talents going at it to be the best in the world. They create a divide between many people as to who is better. Henry has NEVER EVER been considered the best footballer in the world and has never even won World or European Player of the Year (which in my opinion doesn't actually matter, but just bringing it up)
He was the best footballer in 03-04 and was robbed both Ballon d'Or and World Player of the Year awards.

It's called knowing your footballing history. I knew who Maradona was at 11. Then again, I grew up watching him. But I certainly knew who Pele was and I wasn't alive to see him play.

I don't know. If anyone was robbed in 03/04 I thought it was Ronnie D. Shevchenko winning it was a joke.

I think it's more due to his poor grasp of the english language over anything else

Nedved! (Although I agree he was better than Zidane that year and should have won WPotY)


As for the OP, I'll put him top 50 BUT I do think if I wrote the list he could make it on the top 30. Would have to write one down but as of right now, I believe I could name 30 better players.

It's that situation though isn't it. Is Henry better than Maldini for example? I'd rather have Henry up top but I'd rather have Maldini as a defender so how can you possibly say who's better etc.

Re: Your opinion on Thierry Henry?

Top 10-25 overall. Top 5/10 strikers in history IMO. One of best and most effective players I've ever seen. Perfect combination of speed, technique, skills and leadership ability to motivate and make a team better just by his presence on the pitch alone. Pleasure to watch.

The Henry, Bergkamp, Pires, Vieira, Ljungberg, Cole etc is one of the greatest teams of all time. I was never close to an Arsenal fan(Always a huge Henry fan)but that team was something special and when Henry came back and scored last year? An amazing moment that I will never forget.

Re: Your opinion on Thierry Henry?

Definitely the greatest premier league player of all time. Pace, power and was unplayable for about a good 3 years. Even though people knew what he was going to to do ( his signature cut in from the left) they could never stop it. He was also probably one of the most like able people in football ( unless you're irish ). Him and Bergkamp where just so good and his return against Leeds was a fantastic moment , and I ain't even an Arsenal fan.

Hey bobby whats the french for VA VA VOOM?
