And even if you put this aside, he wouldn't be able to run through defenses with the physical style of the PL like he does in Spain. There's a reason LL strikers like a Aduriz or a Hemed has almost the same scoring record of the RVP's and the Suarez's. Not taking anything away from Messi because he has a rare talent but nothing he did against the English teams gives any indicator to what he would be in the PL(You can make the argument in the negative side). And when it's not in a big stage and there's a random away game against the physical Norwich's, he's not scoring 3s like he does against the Granada's. IMO.
Yeah I explained on a earlier post mate about my over the top statement.

Saying that, he'll probably score 5 past us in the Champions League.
Messi is a great player when given time or when the opposition don't have the slightest idea of defending. Even this year, the Celtic match proved, against teams with a physical presence and well organised, he struggles. That's why I respect guys like a Thierry Henry, Ronaldo (chunky one) or Roberto Baggio (did what Messi did when defending was allowed).

Re: Your opinion on Thierry Henry?

I think the top 30 bracket being the most popular option proves the bias towards strikers on this forum.

That or there's too many Arsenal fans letting nostalgia blind their judgement.


I love Del Piero and Nedved, probably my two fave players ever but I don't think either belong near a top 100 of all time.

Henry’s one of my all time fave players. He’s an absolute legend. Greatest Premier League player ever.

Just a bit below Sir Dennis Bergkamp in the GOAT standings.

Long live the King.

Re: Your opinion on Thierry Henry?

As a Gunner, my favorite memories all involved one Thierry Henry. I don't know whether I'm biased, but what is the definition of a legendary player? That the opponents are terrified when you have to play against him? The players couldn't sleep imagining what Henry would do to them on match-day? How he destroyed teams single-handedly? How he was THE PL player for most of his Arsenal career? Or, the way he's won everything there is to win at Club and International level?

I won't go for an all-time list because there are many, many players who have been phenomenal. But I can say this: there was a time in 2003/2004 when Henry was the best player walking on God's green Earth. I also can say that in my lifetime the greatest players I've watched LIVE are Messi, Ronaldo, Zidane, and Henry.

Re: Your opinion on Thierry Henry?

I think I was a bit harsh going with top 100. Undoubtedly a top player in what was the best team in Premier League history. I don't think he lived up to expectations anywhere other than Arsenal.

LOL at Rock marks since 05/02/2014

LOL at people that think rep matters since 11/02/2014

WTF football fans?
People were pissed about Maradona's goal too actually, but time heals wounds. His entire career is glorified anyway, he got away with a lot of shit. He's not even in my top 5 of all time.

Henry is top 30/50 to me.

Re: Your opinion on Thierry Henry?

For me he's top 10, he carried Arsenal to an undefeated season. Sure we had a great team around him but still he was miles better than anyone else, even Denis.

I discovered this video a few days ago and absolutely love it although it could do with a being re-edited.
