Henry v Shearer ? <br>Shearer may be the best Englishman to have played in the Premiership, but I don’t think he’s Henry’s equal. Shearer (rightly or wrongly) conjures up the image of the archetypal English centre-forward, big, bustling, in-yer-face, smash the ball and hope it’s on target. But Henry? Ah!- grace, guile, balance, skill, poise (but a bit of a whingebag when things went wrong e.g. 2006 Champions League v Barcelona).
