Thierry Henry was only supposed to be a backup to Robin Van Persie in case he got injured or to give him a rest, but his cameo loan period has proved that he is a living Arsenal legend.
Today was the third goal he scored for the Gunners. They were always the last goal and two of them winning goals for Arsenal when they really needed someone to step up to the plate.
After coming from 2-0 down to beat Aston Villa and perhaps an even more unlikely win this afternoon, Arsenal may suddenly have reversed the opinion that “they can’t hold on to a lead” to become “the team that comes from behind”.
But will Arsenal still be able to do it if Henry goes back to America?
