What can we say about Theirry Henry that has not already been said? Talisman. Legend. Class. He has been an integral part of Arsenal for over a decade. Even his recent loan spell at Arsenal has been something to behold. As we celebrate of 125 Years of History, Class, and Tradition we could not think of a better player to celebrate and honor. His service and support of our beloved Gunners is the stuff of legends. To repay one of the great Arsenal stewards, the NYC Arsenal Supporters and Arsenal America have teamed up with the New York Red Bulls and Thierry Henry for a very special night.
In 2010 we hosted this same event with the Red Bulls. Those who attended got more than they ever bargained for. Not only did we get to sing, chant, and honor Henry during the Red Bull v. Colorado Rapids match, we got to have a special question and answer session with the Invincibles legend. Supporters got to interact with one of the most dynamic and incredible footballers to ever play the game. One supporter summed up the entire event when he said “this is a night that I will remember for the rest of my life.” So the real question is where will you be this time? He won’t be playing forever, and we won’t have this kind of access to him forever so what are you waiting for? Thierry Henry. New York. Arsenal. What isn’t to like about this event?
