There’s an age old saying which says ‘Records are meant to be broken’. Well, to a certain extent, it is true. But there are some records which have stood for so long that they are almost existent since eternity.Thierry Henry is one such player who has tons of records to his name. Some say he is the best striker who has graced the Premier League whereas some say he is one of the best strikers of his generation, bettered only by the legendary Brazilian, Ronaldo.So here is a look at some of the records by King Henry which may be very, very hard to better.
#1 Most Premier League Golden Boots
The Premier League has seen some truly magical forwards, right from Eric Cantona and Alan Shearer to Wayne Rooney and Didier Drogba. The league has also witnessed the brilliance of Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Aguero and Ruud van Nistelrooy and the list is actually incomplete without Henry’s partner in crime Dennis Bergkamp, who is one of the best Dutch strikers of all time.
But none of them could manage to top the scoring charts for more than three seasons. Only Alan Shearer came close to better this feat in three campaigns. The Frenchman was the top scorer in the EPL four times in 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006 and his tally for those seasons read 24, 30, 25 and 27 goals respectively, which is a commendable feat indeed. He was one of the most prolific goal scorers the league has ever seen.
Henry was a complete forward who possessed excellent finishing along with tear-away pace and a moment of magic. He was known for the spectacular and always had that knack of scoring goals from nothing. His goal against Manchester United in 2000 is still revered and is also credited as one of the best goals in the history of Premier League.
