Remembering Thierry Henry's impact on the Premier League
He was symbolic of the spirit of Arsenal and was instrumental in taking the club to new heights. In the 8 years Henry spent in England, he won the league title and the FA Cup twice apiece, and led Arsenal to the final of the Champions League in his penultimate season. For 2 successive seasons, he won the PFA and FWA Player of the Year awards double, winning the Writers award a third time in 2005-06. Twice he bagged the European Golden Boot, while he won the Premier League award 4 times. For 6 successive seasons, Henry featured in the Premier League team of the year, starting 2000-01. All in all, he scored 226 goals for the club in all competitions, 174 of them in the Premier League and 42 in the continent. Never did he, apart from an injury-torn last season, average less than 20 goals a season, a goal return most strikers would kill to have. But then, to call Henry a striker is an understatement of a magnitude comparable to saying Federer is a handy tennis player.
