Belated Birthday Wishes: Thierry Henry Turns 34

Thierry Henry in hoodie

Photo is vintage 2010, Formula 1 season. Hey, the man looks just as delicious now as he did then.

Monsieur Thierry Henry, one of the Kickette HHOF originals, happy (two days ago) 34th birthday!

Really, what isn’t there to say about the tall deliciousness man who is King Henry? He has proven that good looks know no boundaries, despite the occasional cardigan mishap. We’ve watched Henry’s career trajectory with the utmost of our limited attention spans as he moved from France to Italy to England to Spain, before finally settling within walking distance from one of our staffer’s favourite New York Fashion Week hot spots. Even more so, Titi’s given us cheap thrills and endless amounts of quality material for our dirty daydreams – two things that are the core of our existence.

Here’s to you, birthday boy! Now get over here so we can give you a good birthday spanking.

    you are slow kickette. What took you so long to comment on the birthday of one of the greatest strikers the EPL has ever seen… well, the beautiful game has ever seen.
    May be YOU are getting old, kickette, and not TH?!

      *he's still hot though.

        (not specifically addressed to you lil greenpea)

        first ten days after the handball, I found it funny to make fun of him. After that, not so much.
        When I think about Ireland and the football fans respectively, I think about bitter, whiny, losers who define their entire football existence by one incident. Sad sad sad. They should be careful. This whining soon becomes part of they self identification and character and then we won't have anything to talk about than the 2009 handball of TH. I'm not condoning actions here, but a little honesty should be at present here. Who in his right mind would think that if an Irish player did that (and by God, there were enough in the Irish football history to prove that), he would go and tell the ref? Right. Everyone who says yes is a liar, plain and simple. If at all, blame the refs and FIFA not the player, who instinctively acted… wrong! Hypocrites!

        • littlegreenpea says:

          oh yeah I totally agree with you… but I think that with such a high-stakes game on the line, Ireland sort of have a right to be mad about it. especially since he outright denied the handball to the referee. How he didn't see it is still a mystery to me. So in a way they've got a right to still be mad after about 2 years or so.
          * I think that Henry's good moments certainly outweigh the handball though.

          • IrishBlue says:

            You are right, his good points far outweigh this one incident. He’s a brilliant player with a brilliant history. We still hadn’t won the game at that point if that goal had been disallowed anyway!

          • estelle says:

            true true, I felt the pain for Ireland. But they need to stop feeling like a victim and keep digging the old story up again and again. Over and done, unfair, hard, mean and senseless affair, but it's done. Doesn't make them look good with all this whining and it will become an essential part of their football culture if they can't let go. Typical reaction of a small countyr with low national self esteem (when it comes to football of course only).

        • IrishBlue says:

          Anyone elses intense debate profile not working?? Anyhoo, I’m well over the handball incident, to say we have defined our football existance on this one thing is completely and utterly wrong, speak to any Irish person and they will tell you we have a lot more than this to hang on to. Italia ’90, Japan and South Korea ’02 are ones in particular that spring to mind. We are not exactly Spain when it comes to our skills but we are damn proud of what we are. We are not a bitter nation, what happened was a natural reaction to disappointment. I don’t feel the need to insult other people like that so maybe that’s why I find your comment a little harsh.

        • IrishBlue says:

          There was hurt when it happened but I don't think any fan could not hurt after seeing their team crash out like that. They played so well that night and when you're an Irish fan watching that, a little part of you starts to think that just maybe we could pull off a result that nobody would have expected. It was a natural reaction to disappointment.

          The country is over that. Sure, the odd joke about it will surface but I would say that the majority of people here are well past the hurting phase. The team hasn't the skills of others but we have had moments to be proud of from over the years that in my opinion outweigh this one incident in defining the footballing nation.

          Some of the Irish players themselves came out post match to say that if the shoe was on the other foot, they would have done the same thing. It's heat of the moment stuff out there. These things happen everyday in football.

          C'est la vie. :D

          • estelle says:

            don't write a novel on how much people in Ireland are over it. Fact is, they obviously aren't since sports commentators, daily newspapers and the milk boy around the corner still are whining over the spoiled chance (which by the way wasn't as clear as the Irish believed it to be). My point: STOP complaining and move on. Too much asked for? The Irish who complain sound like a broken record that noone wants to listen to. No need to explain to me the Irish psyche in this matter. Just. Stop. Complaining.

            • IrishBlue says:

              I completely respect your opinion and I'm not sure how the whole situation is being portrayed in other parts of the world but the whole point of my post was about the fact that among the general public, the matter is pretty much forgotten. We don't sit sticking pins into a doll with Henry's name on it or throw darts at his picture! Though I'm not talking about the media, who always like to stir the sh!t when it comes to things like this. Anyway, I'm not here for an argument so I'll leave it at that. :)

    And this is why I am constantly baffled when someone says footballers are "old" the moment they turn 30. You ain't old when you look like this! Oh and happy birthday, Thierry. Stay yummy, okay?

  5. bri_saldana says:

    Happy Birthday! You beautiful, BEAUTIFUL MAN!

    Happy birthday Titi! Like JA7 said, missing you at the Emirates! Although I can't be TOO upset because you are at my home club! Still hoping to run into you in NYC one day!!!

  7. TFBlovesArsenal says:

    Ahhh, Thierry, always so beautiful. <3 Happy birthday!

  8. Buli says:

    Happy Birthday. He was my Idol. Sad that he becomes old.

    • mamaly says:

      OLD !!! You've got to be kidding. He is 34 years old. He is not walking with a zimmer frame. He is still HOT.

      Buli , how old are you.?
      You must be 16 to think 34 is old.

      Based on this logic, Jose is a grand pa!

  9. lisa says:

    as i write this i am getting dressed in a marylin monroe-esque dress to sing him a happy birthday *wink, wink* (if you are lost on the reference google monroe singing to kennedy)
    Bon Anniversaire Monsieur Henry!

  10. JA7 says:

    Happy Belated Birthday love! We miss you so much at Arsenal <3 Once a gunner, always a gunner!

  11. littlegreenpea says:

    it's amazing how many times thierry appears on this website with some sort of dirty subtitle. Happy birthday, you dirty man, you.

    Happy birthday Mr. Henry! Hope for many to come!
