Thierry Henry, playing for Arsenal against Charlton Athletic

Thierry Henry returned to Arsenal on a two month loan from New York Red Bulls in their close season. Henry was a legend at Arsenal before leaving for Barcelona in 2009. With Henry on the pitch you knew there was always a chance. He had goals in his blood, if the ball dropped to him anywhere in the box, or outside for that matter, you could pretty much say goodbye to keeping a clean sheet. Tonight Henry was back in an Arsenal shirt at the grand age of 34. The Gunners were facing Leeds United in the Third round of the FA Cup, 60 minutes on the clock and it was possibly the most unentertaining cup game of the weekend, but then the introduction of Thierry Henry, now if that can’t liven up the match then I don’t know what will. As expected his introduction brought a big of jazz, if that’s even possible?

In less than 10 minuets guess who was breaking the deadlock and placing their name on the scoresheet? Yeah you got it, Thierry Henry!

For anyone who says he’s lost his class think again because Henry’s back.

Gary Speed Passes Away

Upon hearing the death of Gary Speed, a legend in British football on and off the pitch, it really made me think ¬†how precious life is. At any moment we could be facing our last with absolutely no clue. I suppose this cruelly shows how life can never be taken for granted. With today’s expectations Speed was simply too young to die. We all expect to live on and on into our 80s at least, but in reality we have no control at all over our most defining principal: life.

The news was such a shock that it has made me realise that life should never be abused and that to live every day like your last would really be a great act. Love, care, pray and give to others as you would hope to receive could make each life on this earth as special and miraculous as its existence is.
