    Me too. It's hard to move on...we had it good back then, in every way.

    I can't think of any striker I've seen that plays with a similar style to him. Best in the business.

    I think Antonio Di Natale was extremely similar to him and thats why I was such a big fan of his

    *, I miss him so much :54:

    Always knew he'd score. No problem. Such a boost.

    I have an official players jersey from Landskrona BoIS signed by Henke. Number 7 as well (no idea who the number 7 for Landskrona was/is). Up on my wall. :celt_2:

    Would have to be King of Kings, Henrik Larsson.

    I'm not picky.
    And no one deserved to win the Champions League as much as Larsson. I think he still, even to this day, doesn't like - or can't - talk about the 2003 UEFA Cup Final but I'm pretty sure winning the Big One made up for it just a wee bit. Was so glad to see him and Barcelona win that year.

    Apart from those of us who are old enough to have seen jimmy Johnstone play, he is quite possibly the greatest player we'll see play for Celtic in at least decades or maybe even our lifetimes, unless we move to another league.

    I'd have loved to have seen Henke and Sammy playing together at their peak of their careers. I'm in no way comparing the two, by the way. I'd just like to have seen how their styles complemented each other.

    I'm sure he says he would have rather won the Uefa with us the the champs with barca saying it still hurts him till this day! it's mad to think he would have won the second rated European trophy to the first

    Still the current UEFA Cup/Europa league all time top goalscorer! 10 ahead of Falcao currently.

    He missed one against the Huns in the Scottish cup final I'm pretty sure. Was in injury time

    I think Henrik would be frustrated as * woth him to be honest, Henrik's game was all about quick, clever play. Sammy's is the opposite, it's a slow unpredictable style. Don't think Henrik would appreciate his link up play.


    Would have loved to see Hooper and Henke but.

    I would love to see Sutton and Larsson. And I did :icon_mrgreen:

    We haven't had a striker that comes anywhere close to being a better foil for Henke, including; Hartson, Hooper and Sammy. In fact the guy that comes closest in terms of clever movement and the ability to feed his strike partner is probably Stokes. Only problem with him is he's not the type of guy you could run off when there's high balls being played in.

    In all my years of being a Celtic supporter, I've cried twice while watching them...the first time when we beat Airdrie to win the '95 Scottish Cup and then again when Henrik played his last competitive at Parkhead against Dundee Utd, anyway enough about me bubbling.....A lot of fans regard his chip in the 6-2 game as his best against R*ngers..but for me it was the one at 2:15..absolute * class
