Who was better?
>>107335192Mbappé since he actually turns up for big games
Mbappe and it's not even close
>>107335243Its funny how Mbappe only shows up against teams with a highline or in transition.He always chokes against a competent defence
Henry was more complete
Thierry Henry, and it's not even close
>>107335243>Mbappé since he actually turns up for big gamesLike the CL final? Stop being a zoomer retard
how is this even a discussion? a complete player vs pace merchant
>>107335192MbappeHenrry was a choker
Henry is arguably all time top 5 in strikersSecond only to Ronaldinho for player of the decade Peak Henry is the GOAT PL playerMbappe's performances against Bayern's joke of a high line notwithstanding, hes currently second in a one team league
>>107335366Based and checked
Henry's lack of clutchness in the CL and finals is the only reason why this could be a discussion. As a player, he could everything Mbappe does and much more.
Henry was much more complete.Mbappe will have a better career and is more clutch.
>>107335243Zoomers need to be publicly lynched.
>>10733547090% Zidane's goal
Henry is better. First player to get 20 goals and 20 assists in a single PL season. That's just insane stat wise. But he sadly played in a CL final with a retarded German GK who, despite being the semi-final hero, fucked it up in the final.
>>107335470>implying that wasn’t due to Zidane’s brilliant cross and Roberto Carlos’ shit marking Henry was a known choker who never scored a cup final goal for club in 9 apps and only 1 for his cunt in a fucking CONFED cup final
>Henry was much more complete
Who ran faster?
>>107335366>he is currently secondStop being a retard, it’s a team sport and PSG are currently second, Mbappé is leading the golden boot race in ligue 1Shit attempt at undermining Mbappé
>>107335550He wasn't a choker, he took titles off SAF United
>>107335192henry never performed once in the CL like mbappé performed desu. but then again seems like teams back played safer
>let me just stand here, then stick my foot out literally inches away from the goal face after the actual clutch GOAT drops the ball there as part of his MOTM performance. This way, random anons on a Timbuktuvian extreme ironing forum will remember me several years later as a player who performed in high pressure situations.
>>107335470>henry can only score when mbappé is the goalkeeperFRAUD
>>107335271Hasn’t he scored against the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester City before?
>>107335587Probably pretty close but Henry also had elite ball control so he could dribble better than Mbappe.
>>107335283Yeah that is trueFor the league I’d take Henry but Mbappé will surpass Henry overall by the time he’s 26He’s already a more clutch player than Henry
>>107335192mbabbe is only tier below ronaldo and two tiers below messi.Henry is tier below mbabbe.
>>107335662Ages ago. Go look at his recent league games to see him get shut out a lot.
>>107335550And yet he still won three titles, several FA cups and an unbeaten season in the PL. Something still not bested to this day or even matched. So don't pull that shit. Henry was a fantastic player.>>107335623He scored 35 goals in 77 games for Arsenal. That isn't bad at all. He scored the winner against Real Madrid. He won the CL with Barca.
Henry didn't really have any excuses to not be more clutch. His Arsenal team were more stacked than Mbappe's PSG.
>>107335662he scored against city, dortmund, juve in 2017he scored against bayern in 2018he scored against liverpool, united in 2019he scored against real in 2020he scored against barca and bayern in 2021
>>107335849Neymar,Di maria >>>>>>>>>>>> anyone on arsenal
>>107335849Could have been but for Wenger's mismanagement
>>107335873Henry>MbappeBergkamp=NeymarPires>DraxlerLjunberg=Di MariaThe rest is all Arsenal.
>>107336050navas is better desu
>>10733550890% Roberto Carlos' goal
Did anyone in this thread actually even watch last year's final between PSG and Bayern? I'm curious because you all seem to have forgotten the fact that Mbappe missed two 1 on 1 opportunities and an open net.
>>107335283He was a complete cunt.
>>107336487No doubt about that
i cant believe people are actually having this discussion and actually picking this average pace merchant.. have any of you actually seen henry play??
I prefer Mbappe because he looks like donatello
In Mbappe's biggest moment of club football
>>107336811Didn't get under it
Anyone who watched France - Italy in 2000 knows the answer.
>>107336811herrera is such a pussy, he should have shot, he could unlish all his strentgh in that shot
>>107336936ah yes, not being involved in any goal is great
>>107335655lel>>107335192we can't compare yet. Give mbappe another 8-10 years and we'll see where their careers stack up. if mbappe goes to real and wins 2 CLs or a treble he's obviously better. if mbappe goes to liverpool and flops we have our answer too. these things take time, stop being impatient.
>>107335243>>107335256You can just tell who was born in the early 00s and who wasn't
>le athletic black manMbappe is extremely overrated. The definition of a GOAT is someone who can reinvent themselves and have few weaknesses. Mbappe would also get dismantled in a relatively competitive league, as he also relies on trash teams where he can just outpace/outfight the defenders or they're dumb niggers like him and it ends up being a contest of muscles. Think of players like Ronaldo and Messi - both were pacebabby wingers around that age, banking on incredible athletics and dribbling at speed. By 22, which mbappe is right now, Messi was already a great passer and Ronaldo had started scoring like crazy. Mbappe has...what? Fucking nothing. Still the same pacebabby.
>>107337490>still the same pacebabbyTears if you actually think this. Mbappe has elite finishing AND he has a world cup
>>107337490Mbappe is a top 3 player at 22. Already has a WC and will probably add either a CL or Euro to that this year.
>>107337520People are going to say this even if Mbappe wins the Ballon d'Or. People say dumb shit about Messi every day and he's white and has 6 Ballon d'Ors and multiple CLs. It's never going to stop, get used to it.
>>107337583>get used to itLol 10 more years of reading this is gonna get tiring real fast.
>>107337520>elite finishing>le low shot in the corner mann>>107337570The 2018 WC is a non-tournament.
>>107337645>le low shot in the corner manLol what? Is this a criticism or what?
>>107337645Bulgaria is a non-country.
>>107337669Yes, he is literally capable of one single finish. That means he's not a good finisher.>>107337725The 2018 WC is still a non-tournament
>>107335366absolutely based ranjeep gupta
>>107335508More like 100% Roberto carlos'
>>107337490>Mbappe has...what?8 goals in 8 CL games this season, you fucking retard
>>107337844>scored a top corner finesse shot against Barca like a few weeks ago>hes only capable of one single finishbased sperg
>>107337570>top 3 rightnowdoubt, not sure about top 5 desuLiterally not the best player in his team, Mbappe is yet to prove himself as the main man.
>>107341315100 goals in PSG, about 40 tap-ins and 50ish weak shots. And he misses a LOT. He has something like 3-4 shots per game...
>>107342444Source for your fantasies? Or are we supposed to just accept your word for it?>Literally scored a finesse shot
>>107342175>Literally not the best player in his teamLol who is the best player in PSG then?
He doesn't score a lot of spectacular goals but he appears to be effective. I don't always trust stats so I would say show me another player his age who is statistically better than he his across many dimensions, more applicable to forwards.>>107342444.So you're essentially saying is career is a media creation. 10 decent goals across 4-5 years of professional football isn't anywhere close to justifying the attention he gets.
>>107343192I assume he means Neymar.
>>107342444>And he misses a LOTi rate him very high but the 1vs1 miss with neuer last night question his genius,he could've looped it over neuer or like ronaldo vs ghana 2006.
>>107343440I'm not convinced people are serious about comparing Mbappe to the real Ronaldo. CR7 doesn't even compare to the real Ronaldo.
>>107343346If Neymar believed this he wouldn't be trying to leave
>>107343934It's not so much he's trying to leave PSG it's more so that he wants to go back to Barcelona.
>>107343192you don't watch psg games
now Trezeguet.....THAT was a real player, yes sir
>>107343484Yes he does, no matter how much of a nostalgia fag you may be
>>107337520>elite finishinglmao he misses a lot of consistent basis
>>107342444Most elite strikers average 3 shots a game minimum you sperg.
>>107335243???Henry had a great scoring record vs Man Utd and Chelsea and in the CL
Mbappe is a pacenigHenry is probably the most complete striker of all timeIt really isn't close and only braindead zoomers who never saw Henry will think otherwise
>>107348709I'm a big Henry fan but at the end of the day strikers score goals and Mbappe is on a trajectory to beat all of Henry's records. He will undoubtedly also win a Ballon D'or and Henry never did.
>>107348761nketiah is also the top u21 england goal scorer. still dogshit.
>>107337520>Mbappe has elite finishinglol
Mbappe wasnt that good yesterday, he score twice but really hes not a great footballer like Henry
>>107335470That WC was so fucking soulful holy shit. >Netherlands Portugal>Italy Germany>Italy FranceClassics
He already surpassed him. Henry was good but overrated perhaps. Probably due to playing for Arsenal. Mbappe has done more than Henry did in his whole career in a few years.
>>107349286>Mbappe has done more than Henry did in his whole career in a few yearsSuch as?
>>107349533Henry/Mbappe domestic leagues5/4Henry domestic cup/Mbappe domestic cup3/2Henry domestic supercups/Mbappe domestic super cup:3/2Henry CL/Mbappe CL:1/0Henry WC/Mbappe CL:1/1They're extremely close but Henry has the edge. If Mbap wins a CL, or WC/Euro he would have a definitively better career at a younger age
Career-wise, Mbappe is already close. He WILL surpass Henry within the next two seasons career-wise. Ability? He's below Henry in many departments.
to those that think Mbappe is better PLAYER, what attributes does he have that Henry didn't?
>>107349246omg why didnt it greentext the text
>>107344219Mbappé is reminiscent of R9 (I already posted that on /sp/ four years ago, when no one knew who Mbappé was...), but peak R9 was better. Better dribbler, better striker, better passer, physically stronger, etc. No doubt about it.
>>107348709>Henry is probably the most complete striker of all timeYeah he just needed 50 km of space around him to shine
>>107350780Henry had everything skill wise. Mbappe is better in big games. That's it.Mbappe's best attributes are speed and finishing. He's probably level with peak Henry for pace but finishing wise Henry beats him.
>>107351043what are you on about. Henry was elite because he could literally score any type of goal. If he didn't have space, either he'd create it or just score from range.
>>107350551I think Mbappé is the better player, but you can't compare the EPL with the current Ligue 1 lol
>>107351097What is Mbappé better than Henry at?
>>107351089You're right in theory, but in practice Henry was le disappear man as soon as the level got higher in the CL. It was early exit for Arsenal, year after year. And even in 2006, Arsenal got to the final but Henry scored only 2 goals in 7 knockout games (as many as Mbappé for the sole game of yesterday).>>107351106Mbappé is better at dribbling and scoring in tight and crowded spaces. Also he's more clutch. And perhaps slightly faster (not just for running speed, but in general).You can easily imagine Henry scoring Mbappé's second goal against Argentina, but I doubt he would have scored that first Mbappé goal.
>>107344202Answer the question
>>107348932>Guy who averages 30 goals a season isn't eliteI guess you need a neet on 4chan to tell you what's elite and what isn't
Entire thread is FIFA 02 SOUL vs FIFA FUT Gayboys
>>107335192don't care who's better but mbappé has the cutest ears
>>107352130GET THE COOLGET THE COOL SHOESHINEGET THE COOLGET THE COOL SHOESHINE
>>107352065Good one, but not your usual Henry goal.
lol why do the french hate henry
Has Henry ever scored 2 goals against the best team on the planet? Not shitposting, genuinely asking.
>>107352488he is my favourite player but he tends to think he should be regarded as a legendary figure of mankind because he was xtra good at kicking a ball into a net and that rubs people the wrong way.
>>107352488I kinda dislike henrygreat player, maybe even the best striker in PL history, but what a pretentious and insufferable twat he is
>>107335192mbappe, if henry played in the cr7/messi era he would be seen as a luis suarez and nothing else
>>107352488We don't hate him, we just don't particulary like him.I mean there are a lot of reasons to not be fond of him even if he clearly doesn't deserve this lack of love.>only usefull once with france, it was against portugal in the euro 2000>mostly shining in the epl>never celebrating his goals>the hanball incident>being quiet at the WC 2010 despite being a leader>being a coach assistant for belgium>sharting up shamefully at being a manager
>>107352801>the hanball incidentWhy the fuck would you hate him for that, it was like the most based thing he ever did...
>>107352760>seen as a luis suarez and nothing elseYou say that as if Suarez isn't considering one of the best strikers of all time lol
>>107352853I don't hate him for that, I'm just giving reasons.I was actually disgusted at how the casuals jumped on him for that claiming they were ashamed and would have prefered ireland to qualify.
>>107352488Henry always seemed like a sidebitch for France. Never saw him as a talisman. Was always in Zidane's shadow and then Ribery.
>>1073351922004-2006 henry was infinitely better
>>107352903>I was actually disgusted at how the casuals jumped on him for that claiming they were ashamed and would have prefered ireland to qualify.Agreed stark contrast with the dick sucking zidane got for knocking us out of the WC...
>>107352953zizou got god status for showing up in the 98 final, also desu he was kicked out when the game was inevitably going to the penalty shootouts in 2006
>>107352488No hate, but the French want clutch players who deliver at key moments (i.e. in important games with the French NT, because we don't care about Arsenal). The rest doesn't really matter. And Henry mostly didn't score in these moments, while Platini, Zidane, Trezeguet, Griezmann, Mbappé and others did.Nevertheless, Henry wants to be regarded as a legendary figure like the aforementioned (or even above them) in spite of not delivering like them. That's off-putting. But he's still a good player, no one hates him like, say, Benzema.TL;DR: "I did my best" or "I scored a brace in a friendly against Egypt in 2003" doesn't cut it for us.
>>107350551Henry didn't do much in 1998. Hell Guivarch started in the final over him, that's how relevant he was. Meanwhile Mbappe was huge for France in 2018.
>>107353383Also, he was le invisible man both at the WC 2002 and the WC 2010, and it doesn't help his legacy (not even talking about the pathetic Euro 2008). Gives the impression he was carried by Zidane all along.
>>107352880I mean he's good but if he played today he would be behind messi and cr7 in the top 3 just like luis suarez
>>107353464Suarez was better than Henry lol, he would have won a Ballon d'or if he played in Henry's era (and Henry still wouldn't have won one)
>>107348697>in the CLTOP KEKonly 12 KO stage goals in his entire careerMbappé has already matched that at the age of 22
>>107335856/sp/ BTFO>>107335727>Ages agoyou act like he's 34 or something
>>107335745>several FA cupsin which he never scored a goal in any of the finalsGreat player, very all round but quite the choke artist>>107335745>He scored 35 goals in 77 games for Arsenal. That isn't bad at all. He scored the winner against Real Madrid. He won the CL with Barca.>>107335745How many UCL KO stage goals though?
>>107337192I choose Mbappé because he will be far better than Henry and it's just a matter of timehe's already matched his CL Ko stage goals record
>>107349035true but he is finishing in the moments that count, which is what will separate henry and mbrapp apart in the end
>>107353383Like Messi with ArgentinaGood post Pierre
>>107352514Current bayern wouldn't even be a top 5 team 5 years He disappeared against stronger bayern (Not even strong defensively) last season, Actually worse, He missed silver plate chances.
>>107356236>he will be far better than Henry and it's just a matter of time.even if he score 100 goals/season & won 5 CL/world cups he won't.
>>107359838Mbappé always was better than Henry m8, even in Monaco.
>>107359838Take off your boomer glasses, Mbappe is doing everything Henry did but in a much shorter time
>>107335366Based and poopilled
The fact that we're even asking this question already is ridiculous.
>>107335243>>107335256>>107335352>>107335592>>107335711>>107335856>>107337570>>107356236>>107360242>>107361261Mpoopi will NEVER EVER score a goal like this, which already makes Henry better than him
Mbap scoring more goals than Hen during this refinement era, where fucking Salah (whos a good player dont get me wrong) scored 45 goals, does not impress me compared to how Hen TERRORIZED teams. He might up having a greater legacy, he might even turn out to be a better player, but hes not even in the same conversation until more of his career unfolds AND he goes to a serious league.
>>107362570>different players have different abilities thus score different goalsWow!!Seriously, Mbappé is more focused on small spaces and tighter, when Henry had a larger vision and inspiration. That doesn't make one better than the other, just different. Where Mbappé is superior is the clutch aspect. He's not always clutch, but at least he can. It was much rarer to see Henry delivering important goals in important games.
>>107362771>>107362771>Hen TERRORIZED teamsOnly in your head bro. He was not more terrifying than 15 other good strikers from this era.Meanwhile, Mbappé already scored more CL games than fucking Luis Suarez despite being 11 years younger than him lol. That's it.
>>107363019suarez had to play for ajax and then he had to play in a real league
>>107363058Mbappé was 8 years old when Suarez played his first Champions League lol
>>107362771Mbappe is terrorizing teams right now
>>107353445>You now remember Guivarch
Skill, technique, swagger - HenryClutchness, positioning, finishing - MbappeBut the fact this question is already being asked has Mbappe on a trajectory to surpass him. If he keeps this up, moves to a real league, wins a few CLs and a ballon d'or(almost inevitable) 10 years from now, it'll be a foregone conclusion. Henry will however always be the more skillful player whereas Mbappe is far more direct.
>>107363019One of the best cbs of all time, John terry, said he had literal nightmares before the games against Henry
Mbappe is more efficient.Henry was good but fun as fuck too.Its literally soul v soulless imo.
>>107359838kekPeak delusion right there
>>107359838kekPeak delusion right there>>107359609>He disappeared against stronger bayern (Not even strong defensively) last season, Actually worse, He missed silver plate chances.he did in fact choke but I love how you faggots hold him up to this high standard where him choking in that one final at such a young age must mean he isn't or won't be better than Henry. Henry choked on so many fucking occasions despite having matured and reached his peak>>107365478>efficiency is soullesslolIt's what mattersBut yes Henry was more fun to watch for sure, no doubt about it>>1073643860 goals in 9 cup finals>>107362570then Giroud must be the GOAT since no one will ever score a scorpion kick like him (Mhiktarayn or however the fuck you spell his name was offside when he scored his) or because Giroud scored a sexy ass volley against Sweden or his bicycle kick vs Atlético de MadridShit logic
>>107359609mbappé came back from a long ankle injury last year, he couldn't train for a while
>>107337583What does him being white even have to do with him being among the best players in the world, lmao.
>>107365554If an extremely good white player gets constant criticism imagine what a very good black player is going to get. It's the way of the world.
>zoomers comparing PSG in today's Ligue 1 to Henry's Arsenal in that era of the PLtop kekHenry will always be the more skilful of the two, the better finisher, the bigger influence and better link up man. Mbappe is faster, but Henry was quick too, so that's not that important in a direct comparison really. Think of it like this - if prime Henry was in this PSG team, this France team, would they do worse? Or would they do better? I'm going with better.Henry > Mbappe, simple as.
>>107365592please stop bringing your race obsession into /sp/. >our favourite players are all black (Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Kante, Garrincha, Maradona, Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo) so take it back to /usa/ or wherever you came from
>>107364375I'm a boomer, I remember him well. People like to shit on him nowadays, but he was a very solid player.
>>107336278Can't believe how many posts it took before someone with a medium-term memory turned up
>>107335192Is this thread satire? I can't tell if people are trolling or not. Henry is arguably the best striker ever to play the game.Mbappe is like Marcus Rashford level with extra pace.
>>107367289in today's football, Marcus Rashford with extra pace is enough to be top5(at least) in the world.
