David Batty takes up last place
And today; Thierry Henry
Effortless graceful, heck of a goalscorer and could do it on a cold Tuesday night in Stoke, seems a nice lad etc etc
Minus a point for that handball because what a pathetic baby move, and then also minus a point for a relatively quick decline after the peak
Very much knocking on the door of a 10. The combo of grace and power was like nothing else I’d seen in the prem at the time. Sexy fucker. Consistently brilliant for a decade. Won everything.
Can’t agree more with the two comments above.
2nd best Frenchman to grace the Premier League.
3rd best Frenchman to grace English football (you know what im saying, Funkman…)
oh no wait I forgot he went to barca
Sorry this isn’t the Giroud thread is it
Zero championship playoff final wins for ol’ Terry
Cheating piece of shit.
he’s never chucked a kettle over a pub
Get the impression he’d be a wonderful houseguest
Also was incredibly fond of scoring at shite Hart Lane iirc
hate those renault adverts he was in.
Absolutely hated him as a kid, being a United fan. So many hours on the playground insisting Van Nistelrooy was better. I still love Ruud but I was a fucking idiot
Obviously the handball in Paris broke the hearts of my nation but we only have ourselves to blame for not putting a ropey enough French side away (Lloris played an absolute blinder too iirc).
Bit pleased that he’s been a really dodgy manager so far
Yeah, pretty good. He was at his best when he worked as a pair with someone (eg Pires).
Even though he’s the top scorer for the French national team, I don’t remember him setting tournaments alight in the way that his Premier League performances suggested he should have done.
You did get a new stadium out of it
