Thierry Henry, the legend, the all-encompassing Gunner of the 21st Century.
As you can see from his massive awards list he accumulated while at Arsenal, there are so many things that could be said about the Frenchman, what else could there be left to say?
After a rather unsuccessful stint at Juventus as a wide midfielder, Arsene Wenger transferred him to Arsenal and molded him into the most successful and most deadly forward and goalscorer at Arsenal.
For a taste of just how great of a talent he was, take a look at this little-less-famous goal he scored for the Arsenal Reserves in 2006, while recovering from injury.
There are many that will try to emulate his play style, but few will be able to come close to what he brought to Highbury and the Emirates for the Gunners.
Oh yeah! Remember that poll I mentioned just last slide? He was voted No. 1.
