    MIKE K. How did the presentation of the trophy go on Saturday to TH14?
    I assume that it did take place even on DB10 day.

    Dennis' play reminds me of what I was thinking back in Jan/Feb when the world was about to end, Arsenal-wise.

    More than the loss of Vieira, Cole, Campbell or anyone else, its the fading of everyone's favorite #10 that has made this such a tough year, IMO.

    Our goals against is actually not too bad, thanks to Toure and Jens. But our goal production has fallen, especially on the road. Henry grew up into his Arsenal boots with a steady supply of passes from DB. Now Dennis hardly ever makes the pitch. The (at times) dissapointing play of Pires and Ljunberg just made it worse, but its the virtual loss of Dennis that's made this such a tough year.

    I totally agree. I even think that lack of Dennis is what made Vieira have such a tough last year with us. He supplied the perfectly weighted pass, well concealed and the right angle - and that is what made Ljunberg and Pires look so good. In fact, this may be worth it's own thread.

    Seconded. He has brought more than any other to this team in the time he has been here, and it has been a sad loss.

    Respect to Arsenal for honouring Bergkamp, the genius footballer who as far as I can recall hasn't scored an ugly goal in his life. The only reason he was never bigged up the way some other star players are is because he doesn't want to get involved in the moviestar behaviour thing.

    exactly. as has been stated in the transfer thread more or less. if we dont get a striker who has even an iota of the intelligence that bergkamp has then we can expect the same drop off in goals. he made wengers system work.

    Bergcamp is the best player i have ever seen wear an arsenal shirt.
    Yes, and i include Brady in that!
    He had the grace of a GOD.
    And he revolutionised Arsenal.

    I was happy to Wear my Free BD10 Orange shirt, thanks to the RedAction lads there.

    He will be grately missed, but never forgotten!

    That is incredible. I think I screamed and balled through the whole thing. Amazing still at 37 years old.

    Sort of reminds me of that line between Paul in Steve in Fever Pitch.

    Steve: Stanley Matthews was playing First Division football when he was fifty.
    Paul Ashworth: I'll bet you any money you like you're not playing First Division football when you're fifty.
    Steve: [looks at his cigarette] Well, no. It's the smoking.
    Paul Ashworth: It's NOT the smoking, Steve. It's the crapness. LOL

    Great Post!

    just watched that video and it just dawned on me. this could be a very sad, emotional summer. we are definatly going to be saying good bye to Dennis 'God' Bergkamp and highbury and also maybe thierry henry. thats 3 important parts of AFC in one summer. im actually dreading it
