Player Review

Thierry Henry - 93 - Icon
Pure class
By mancuddles, 19-02-2018

As soon as I saw his prime SBC come out I knew I wanted him. I saved my coins and finally did his SBC admittedly a bit later than most people. His finishing is world class and shot inside the box will more than certainly go in. I found his finesse shots from the edge of the box OP as well. Driven shots are a bit inconsistent however seems like the ones that should go in don't and the ones that shouldn't do. Long shots are good not the best but should still get the job done against average keepers. Pace is enough to beat most defenders along with his strength which is okay but even with a finisher chem style not the best. Wins 50% of headers as well which was surprising for a player of his height. I wouldn't recommend spending all the coins you own on him though as he needs a good team around him I think to fully unlock his potential however he will carry your less than average squad but not to the same heights as a strong team all over without Henry. This is the main weakness I found to be honest so if you want him don't do his SBC just save the extra few hundred thousand coins.

Movement is stupidly good, have a good passer in behind him and you are sorted. I myself have issues with finishing but with this guy there are no problems at all. Physical is just a joke for someone with his speed, to have this strength is just a deadly combo. Pace is certainly not an issue, play a through ball in behind and Henry is getting there. If you are looking for an Icon striker and have the coins to get either R9 ...

Henry is a god among men. He has incredible finishing and finesse shots and he actually feels like 95+ pace for me. He can muscle any player off the ball and outpace even the fastest defenders. I actually sold his 87 version and Messi to afford his SBC, but he is definitely worth it. If you have the coins, I'd strongly suggest getting this beast.

One of the best players I've ever used!

As an huge Arsenal fan, seeing that Henry got an Icon card this year was unbelievable, I wanted to get him as soon as possible. I was ready to get his 90 rated to find out that Prime version is actually being released and somehow I just had enough (thanks to my pack luck giving me Messi from MM's). Into the review, he is absolutely incredible and there is nothing he can do. Very quick and is quite str...
