    Anyone that says it is not Henry is just being a homer.....

    Notice it says EPL and not INTERNATIONAL tournaments.

    A better poll would have been to ask who has the better tandom.

    Henry removed all doubt last season when he scored 30 PL goals.

    Henry is. Owen can no longer even aspire to be.

    If Rooney lost his extra few stones he could rival Henry for pace, but since it isn't gonna happen you can't prove me wrong =)

    Why is Owen on the list? 2 things wrong with that.

    Watch Fowler this year, a promise he'll be awesome.

    Henry is the best. While he does score a lot of goals, his assist total goes really unnoticed. He's usually involved in the play even he wasn't the one producing the finish. I think you'll find that all of the others on the list have very few assists.

    Besides, Michael Owen is in Spain!!!

    Even though I am a Manchester United/Fulham fan, Henry is the obvious choice for this one. This to me is a no-brainer. He is not only the best striker in the EPL, he is the best player in the world. He is unbelievable and he amazes me each and every time I see him play.

    I wouldn't go as far as to say that he is the best player in the world, but Henry is clearly the best striker in the EPL. I'd even give him the nod as the best striker in the world, just edging out Shevchenko, but he is not the best player in the world.

    Can this even be up for debate? I mean, just watch Henry's Nike commercial. The whole Man Utd team has to hide out in his closet just to DREAM of trying to catch him. :D

    Seriously though, I'm not just being an Arsenal fan when I say Thierry's the best, bar none. Oh wait, yes I am.

    Heh I don't like Arsenal but Henry is the best currently! He's also the most complete centre forward (how many goals does Ruud set up??)

    Terry obviously. He's moody, but when he fancies it it's job done.

    Henry is not a striker, he is a forward.

    Wheres the options for Kezman and Drogba?. I dont think their the best in the premiership, but their better than Rooney. As for Owen, he isnt in the EPL anymore is he?. When was this thread created?

    Without meaning to sound like an overbearing Gooner, the other names on the list are not even worthy of being uttered in the same breath as Henry's. The French international proved last season that, notwithstanding a largely anonymous showing at Euro 2004, few other forwards can dominate a game the way he does. Players of his calibre come along once every 30-50 years--he is pure, undiluted class. It even appears that he has finally learned to head the ball! His partnership with Reyes seems to be on the verge of paying huge dividends for Arsenal; the thought of it makes me drool. I would argue that Van Nistelrooy's best days may be behind him. Rooney's problem is that he has risen to superstardom at a very early age; whether he will be anywhere near the top in ten years' time is open to question. It's the same story for Michael Owen. The heroics of France 1998 and the hat-trick against Germany in September 2001 confirmed his reputation as perhaps England's best attacker since Gary Lineker, but sustaining that irrepressible form has been a different matter. I do wish him success at Real Madrid.
  22. thats why he makes goals outside the premiere league? they cant score a goal for his own NT doesnt deserve to be called class hes a goal scorer but he has no class he can just tap the ball in

    Henry doesn't deserve ::takes breath:: to be mentioned in the same breath as Maradona and Pele
