Immortalizing Thierry Henry’s magical Second Coming, when he scored for Arsenal against Leeds in a crucial FA Cup tie, the print is a perfect example of a “defining moment’. It was a fairy-tale, triumphant return to the club by one of Arsenal’s most beloved legends.
“Form is temporary. Class is permanent.”
You’d be hard-pressed to find a moment described more perfectly by that classic statement.
In a brilliant essay, “Return Of The King”, Sam Fordyce puts the image in context. Read it here.
