The Highbury Record Man

Share |

Thierry Henry heard about the importance of his goal on Saturday only when Arsenal's PA announcer informed the Highbury crowd him as he walked back for the restart.

Henry's scoring against Blackburn was his 100th League goal at the famous old stadium. It was also the first time any player has scored a century of Premiership goals at any one ground. The Frenchman has broken so many records this season that perhaps you can forgive it slipping below his radar.

"I saw it come up on the screen and I was reading about it," Titi said afterwards. "Then the guy said it was my 100th League goal at Highbury.

"I was unaware of it, I have to say. To be honest when Robert gave me that fantastic ball I just wanted to put it in the back of the net to make sure we were 2-0 ahead.
