Arsenal fans have had a difficult few days – both on and off the pitch.

No wins in two games in the Premier League coupled with the frenzy caused by the European Super League, it has been a really tough time for us. We needed something to cheer us up, and thankfully, we got it this morning.

The Premier League officially inducted Thierry Henry into the Hall Of Fame.

The legendary Frenchman spent seven years at Arsenal and changed the game. He cemented himself as one of the greatest ever players to feature in the English game.

Henry played 258 times in the Premier League for Arsenal. He scored 175 goals and provided 83 assists – one direct involvement in every game he ever played in the English top-flight. A truly staggering record.

The now 43-year-old made hundreds of thousands of people from around the world fall in love with Arsenal. He helped us win the Premier League twice as well – including the 2003/04 season where we managed to clinch the title without losing a single game.

To most Arsenal fans, if not all of us, Henry is the greatest ever player to wear the famous red and white. His induction into the Hall Of Fame is completely deserved – just a shame that Alan Shearer got in before him.
