On This Day in 2012 - Henry, King of the Gunners

On 11th February 2012, Gunners' legend Thierry Henry scored his 228th and final goal for Arsenal.

The 91st minute goal saw Arsenal beat Sunderland 2-1 at the Stadium of Light and helped us finish in the top four during a season where we really struggled.

Due to Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh having to travel to the Africa Cup of Nations for Ivory Coast and Morocco, Arsenal had to reach out to Henry’s club at the time, New York Red Bulls, and ask to take him on loan during the MLS off season.

Fortunately, they complied and Henry returned for his second spell in north London.

After scoring the winner in Arsenal’s League Cup match against Leeds United at the Emirates, Henry went on to score the crucial goal in the Premier League with virtually his last kick for Arsenal against Sunderland thanks to a superb cross from Andrey Arshavin.

You couldn’t have written it: Thierry’s last kick of his lack game for Arsenal and he helped us win, ultimately helping us finish in the top four for another season.
