Genius has left the country....

Sigh. What a friday!! June 22, 2007. The day when a year long rumour was hours from becoming a reality -- Thierry Henry was on the verge of being snapped up by Barcelona.

And today, it was official. The greatest player in the modern game has now left Arsenal for the passionate theatre of Nou Camp.

Here's to Thierry Henry, the passionate artist who wore his heart on his sleeve. He crafted goals out of nothing and was never afraid to show his emotion. Yes, he sulked at times and even let his head drop on the odd occasion but then in an instant, he burst forward to rip defenses apart and claim victory for the Gunners. It was refreshing to see him take a stand for what he believed in and even challenging the incompetent decisions that existed around him.

The following are just a sample of some brilliant Henry pics on Soccernet (Getty Images).

The first is from that legendary 2002 season when Henry led Arsenal to an amazing league and cup double:

This is the picture after Henry scored the only goal to beat Real Madrid in Spain. Vintage Henry...

And now the new era starts. Henry in Barcelona.....
