It was galling, as a Spurs fan, to see Arsenal in those glory years of Bergkamp and Henry and Viera, but it was equally clear that if you were an Arsenal supporter at that time, then you were immensely privileged. It was a great team. I personally think that Bergkamp and Henry are the finest foreign players this country has seen (and I do not forget Ronaldo or Cantona or Schmeichel, who weren't bad themselves). There was no gall in seeing Thierry Henry come back and score for Arsenal last night, and so damn characteristically - all svelte timing and grace. A really terrific moment in the season. Merci. Hope he's gone back to the States before the North London derby...
