Its funny how Mbappe only shows up against teams with a highline or in transition.
He always chokes against a competent defence

Henry is arguably all time top 5 in strikers

Second only to Ronaldinho for player of the decade

Peak Henry is the GOAT PL player

Mbappe's performances against Bayern's joke of a high line notwithstanding, hes currently second in a one team league

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.

Mbappe will have a better career and is more clutch.

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.

Probably pretty close but Henry also had elite ball control so he could dribble better than Mbappe.
>>
>>107335283
Yeah that is true
For the league I’d take Henry but Mbappé will surpass Henry overall by the time he’s 26
He’s already a more clutch player than Henry

mbabbe is only tier below ronaldo and two tiers below messi.

Henry is tier below mbabbe.
>>
>>107335662
Ages ago. Go look at his recent league games to see him get shut out a lot.
>>
>>107335550
And 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.

>>107335623
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.
>>
Henry didn't really have any excuses to not be more clutch. His Arsenal team were more stacked than Mbappe's PSG.
>>
>>107335662
he scored against city, dortmund, juve in 2017
he scored against bayern in 2018

>le athletic black man
Mbappe 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 pacebabby
Tears if you actually think this. Mbappe has elite finishing AND he has a world cup
>>
>>107337490
Mbappe is a top 3 player at 22. Already has a WC and will probably add either a CL or Euro to that this year.
>>
>>107337520
People 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.

Literally not the best player in his team, Mbappe is yet to prove himself as the main man.

100 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...

Lol 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.

They'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?
>>

omg why didnt it greentext the text
>>
>>107335587
Clearly Henry
>>
>>107344219
Mbappé 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 time
Yeah he just needed 50 km of space around him to shine
>>
>>107350780
Henry 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.
>>
>>107351043
what 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.
>>
>>107350551
I think Mbappé is the better player, but you can't compare the EPL with the current Ligue 1 lol
>>
>>107351097
What is Mbappé better than Henry at?
>>
mbrap crearly
>>
>>107351089
You'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).

>>107351106
Mbappé 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.

I 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.
>>
>>107352488
Henry always seemed like a sidebitch for France. Never saw him as a talisman. Was always in Zidane's shadow and then Ribery.
>>
>>107335192
2004-2006 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...
>>
>>107352953
zizou 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
>>
>>107352488
No 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.
>>
>>107350551
Henry 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.
>>
>>107353383
Also, 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.
>>
>>107352880
I mean he's good but if he played today he would be behind messi and cr7 in the top 3 just like luis suarez
>>
>>107353464

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 goals
Wow!!

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 teams
Only 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.

Skill, technique, swagger - Henry

Clutchness, positioning, finishing - Mbappe

But 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.

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

then 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 Madrid

>zoomers comparing PSG in today's Ligue 1 to Henry's Arsenal in that era of the PL
top kek
Henry 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.
