    Oh that's great show me the world class 15 year old Thierry Henry because you're comparing a player who's consistently done well for a decade to a guy who 10 years ago was a 15 year old. You know because we like to compare fairly.

    Plus anyway we're acting like Aguero can't play well if he was down the flanks and can't create goals from the wing if asked to? Cavani scored 16 league goals this season iirc so if he can do that from the wing why not Aguero if he played there? That's not really an argument for Henry being better than Aguero. That's not even to say that Henry isn't better than Aguero. But I don't think there's much between the two if Aguero is fit all season.
    Henry is better at taking free kicks

    Aguero has the best goal/minute ratio of any premier league player and he barely took any penalties he's probably better than Henry just not as flashy

    I would say that you are saying that my perceived mental state is affecting my ability to argue in this quote.



    You've repeated that point before with SUG repeating that point, I find it as an undertone personal attack designed to question the sanity of the guy speaking.

    So to answer your question, I believe you have questioned my integrity and I feel rather offended by it. Offended to the point that I don't feel there is a point of discussing my views with biased people, biased in their wanting of my persecution.

    It's best if I don't speak.
    I was clearly saying that your mental state is affecting your ability to not be rude to everyone, rather than your ability to argue,.as shown by the phrase "having a go at everyone" preceding the comment about you having a bad day

    That doesn't make any sense. What I was trying to say is that its pointless comparing a player in his third season in the PL to a legend that dominated it for 7 consecutive seasons. Until he reaches that level of consistency its not even worth debating.
    Ok then. What I'd say firstly is that Arsenal had a better set up than this current City team which I think is tailored between individuals and without any one of those individuals their play is completely flat, you know the players I'm talking about. While I feel that Arsenal were set up much better than the City team.
    Henry won the World Cup playing out wide, was converted into a striker where he scored 226 goals and assisted 92 others, and then moved to Barcelona where he played out wide again and scored 19 & 26 goals in his first two seasons. I have yet to see Aguero even start out wide.

    So why are you using Henry being able to create and score out wide as part of an argument when Aguero doesn't play out wide and hasn't been made to start out wide by his managers? There was no need to put that in your point as to why Aguero isn't at Henry's level. Aguero currently is a top player, I can see him getting top goalscorer next season for sure.

    Maybe so, but I still believe that's still part of my argument and is still clearly a personal attack that was pretty unwarranted imo.

    Don't know what money has to do with when comparing individuals but, defensibly the league is ****. Defensively, current football is basic level to what it was during Henry's era. Henry would be scoring much more. Ronaldo was barely scoring 30 goals in La liga. The greatest striker in recent time is average compared to Messi's and Ronaldo's record.

    But obviously taking that into context doesn't help with your antiArsenal circlejerk.

    How do you know the league is defensively worse right now than In Henry's time.......I could easily say the attackers are better now


    And the money part obviously means the league is stronger because everyone can afford to strengthen easily......

    meh, you're making it out as if Aguero plays for Crystal Palace, he has enough players around him to get the best out of him, regardless if certain people are involved in the squad or not

    point still stands about the consistency, Baconbutty just quoted the inevitable "aguero has the best minutes to goals ratio in the Premier League" forgetting that one has over 250 Premier League appearances whilst the other has less than 100


    So why are you using Henry being able to create and score out wide as part of an argument when Aguero doesn't play out wide and hasn't been made to start out wide by his managers? There was no need to put that in your point as to why Aguero isn't at Henry's level. Aguero currently is a top player, I can see him getting top goalscorer next season for sure.
    Because it shows that he's intelligent, versatile and can play anywhere?

    Don't get this **** about Vela. he failed before, we need a Cavani or a Falcao, not him. Then again, if as a squad player maybe but NOT our main striker.

    It's called eye test analysis. It's not even an original statement. Everyone that watched football during those era knows the quality of defences has diminished and isn't even comparable.

    Don't know how to state any clearer than that.

    Your point about money still doesn't hold ground when quality of players teams are buying are of lower standard, and it''s not like money has never dominated football.

    I really feel for you people if you can't fail to appreciate that football pre2006-8 is of a much more higher standard than it is at the current level.

    Really need to get off this site.

    he's a dope..... Only says **** to be controversial or look cool and edgy... Proves how fickle we Gooners are, he of most celebrity fans was calling for Arsene to be sacked over the past few years, but yeah, it's five days without a trophy, so sack him, too long without a trophy....

    There must be a reason why he is not first choice free kick taker. As in the pick first choice taker based on performance at training.

    But perhaps there was no one of Yaya's (I think he's first choice) quality for Arsenal when Henry was there so it's an unfair comparison.

    Yeah that's true but it's a problem that City have generally had. They're a team that are more based on the parts of the machine than the actual.machine. While you could probably get any old player in say Atlético make then work hard and they'll do a good job for you(see Adrian e.g.)

    Well Aguero was getting a goal a game this season but we'll wait for a few more seasons.

    Basically what I'm saying is that when you don't make somebody play in a position, how can you make judgements on that guys character and how good he is in that position?

    You've seen many a time a player changing their position according to age/tactics and adapting it well. Gerrard, Sturridge, Mata, Silva all changing their positions to where they used to be playing the past few years and for the most part have shown they're capable of doing a good job there.

    Oh so you've completely made it up

    Something like that would be so hard to measure and if you think I'm going off anyone on this sites memory you can think again. You would of bin about 9 years old so before you spew more bull**** think about what you're saying or me and you might have a serious problem

    As you sure yaya is first choice? Maybe when it is direct and close to goal, but silva takes the set piece ones?
