Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry: Welcome to the Premier League Hall of Fame

5.7 K


Premier League Hall of Fame - home of the greats. A place for celebration, admiration and nostalgia. Introducing the two inaugural inductees of the Hall of Fame: Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry. If there was a ball and there was a goal, nothing could stop Alan Shearer. Not defenders, not distance, not great goalkeepers nor even the laws of physics sometimes. That was why he scored a record 260 goals in the Premier League. The call of home to play for his boyhood club Newcastle United made him a Geordie legend, but meant he lifted the Premier League Trophy just once. Some are scorers of great goals, some are great scorers of goals. Shearer was both. The ultimate centre-forward. Pace, power and grace. Thierry Henry gave Premier League defenders nightmares for eight seasons. He scored over 20 Premier League goals five seasons running, claiming four Golden Boots, with some outrageous strikes. Not content with just scoring he also provided 74 assists, including a record 20 in 2002/03, won two Player of the Season awards and two Premier League titles.
