” His reaction is raw, visceral. From sheer delight to chest thumping, from crowd waving to an embrace with Arsene Wenger, it’s a moment that nobody will forget.”

” the years rolled away as Song slid the ball through the line of defenders, the left edge of the penalty melted as Henry’s body shape dictated where the shot was going and inevitably ended. This was Arsenal’s Sex Pistols at Manchester Free Trade Hall moment.”
” The first touch was immaculate, the body shape breathtakingly familiar. The giant clock suspended from the Emirates canopy seemed to stop, dead. Time wound back to 2004 and, briefly, Thierry Henry was invincible again.”
” And he is different. But in that vintage finish and the run at the end, he was there again. Perhaps, in my case as I’ll miss the next two home games, for one night only. But he was undoubtedly there. It was unmistakable.”
Goodplaya was at the Emirates when it happened in front of him. He saw history in the making.
