    I remember us complaining how expensive he was (20 mil.).

    Decade of oil clubs ruining football.

    I get that, but i'm not comparing him to the arsenal times. I'm talking about the difference between 2009 and 2010 .. He didn't just drop in level, he literally stoped playing all together. Regardless of the loss of explosiveness and technique he did amazing in 2009 when he wanted to win the champions league.
    kilometers matter ..

    Dont think it was lack of effort.

    Henry got older and roles changed a bit that season with Etoo leavig, Ibra arriving and Messi playing more central at times. Is how I remember it.

    Henry price wasn't bad at that time,but people complained because of his age and whether we needed him or not. Chelsea has signed Shevchenko with around double that price one year before it at the age of 30 too.

    Don't I know it. I complained Henry is finished. He wasn't near his Arsenal peak days that's for sure but he still managed to give us 2 solid years.

    Shame we couldn't get him earlier.

    2006 is when he should've joined us just after we beat them in the CL final.

    He was far too connected to Arsenal to do it.
