Henry shows Marouane and Andrei just what Va Va Voom actually is
Thierry Henry returned to Arsenal with a bang last night, and demonstrated just how useless Marouane Chamakh and Andrei Arshavin actually are.
January 10th, 2012
Henry, who has recently been plying his trade for the New York Fizzy Energy Drink FC in the retirement home known as the MLS, made his return to the Emirates in the 68th minute against Leeds United. Ten minutes later, he scored the goal that booked his side a fourth round tie against Aston Villa.
It was Henry’s 227th goal for Arsenal and it was one to cap-off a “dream” night for the French striker.
“It was a little bit like a dream. It was a story you would tell young kids if you want to tell them a story about football.
“Unfortunately it doesn’t often happen like that in our game, but it did tonight.”
Henry was even embarrassed to accept the man-of-the-match award from ESPN which, thanks to the stupidity of supporter influenced votes, had effectively been given to him before he had even set foot on the pitch.
“I came back from holiday 15 days ago. I never thought I was going to play for Arsenal again or score a winner,” Henry said.
“I don’t know what to say. I love the club and I hope I can do more.
“I hope it won’t be the last one. The feeling I had when I scored was amazing.
“I rejoined the club as a fan; [when I joined first time] I wasn’t.
“With one opportunity, it’s very important, you don’t know if you’ll have a second. You have to make sure you take it. I took it well.”
The result has seen bookies Paddy Power and Victor Chandler open the book on how many league goals Henry will score during the second coming, with Paddy 11/10 that he scores more than 2.5 (4/6 for under), whilst Chandler going 11/5 on Henry netting exactly one, 4/5 on more than one and 5/2 on zero league goals.
Oh, and because it would be rude not to…..
