Arsenal captain and general wonder player, Thierry Henry, has scooped the Barclays Player of the Year award to claim his second prize in as many weeks.

Henry looks certain to finish as the Premiership’s top scorer (again) in a season that he has not only played some magnificent football, but became Arsenal’s alltime leading goal scorer & living legend.

Matt Appleby, from the Barclays Awards Panel, said: ‘Henry has graced Arsenal’s last season at Highbury in magnificent style.

‘He combines moments of brilliance and entertainment with match-winning goals.

No wonder he was described by one opposition manager as ‘unplayable’.’

Henry is loved by Gooners the world over, and the increasing speculation about a possible departure is un-nerving to say the least. However, should Henry choose to leave, we would have nothing but praise for the player who has given us all some wonderful memories and even greater goals.

Nice one Thierry.
