Taxes are higher in Denmark so even on the same wage he’ll have less. But you could probably buy a massive house in Jutland and a Porsche 911 and still have change compared to a one bed flat in the new flats by our ground so it balances out.I was just interested to know how we compare with FCM (and the Danish Superliga generally) now in terms of wage structure. Based on not a lot I always had a sense we were pretty similar but possibly are now going to overtake. Wondered if HD would be taking some form of cut going to FCM vs staying here (assuming a contract was available to him he wanted it).
I was just imagining one of the DoFs presenting Henrik with two envelopes - one with a new, 2-year Brentford contract and the other, a 2-year FCM contract and was just intrigued to know what the difference between those would be.Sorry to see him go.
He’s been a rock solid performer for four years and for me a key player to getting us up.
Surprised we’ve not seen a “Thanks Henrik” from the club
One's in English, the other in Danish?I was just imagining one of the DoFs presenting Henrik with two envelopes - one with a new, 2-year Brentford contract and the other, a 2-year FCM contract and was just intrigued to know what the difference between those would be.
And what about our solitary goal in the Fulham PO final, which he almost willed in !A Hero and a legend for us. The goal at Forest away was a memorable highlight. A very assured interview before the final and an accomplished player during it. Did his job. Thank you, Henrik!
Can we send him this thread as a leaving present ? Think he would be touched to know just how revered he is. I also note in passing how he has single handedly united GPG, a feet which presumably has never previously been achieved !?
That plus potentially winning the top division in his home country, playing in the Champions League, and maybe being more visible to the national team for another World Cup. While it’s a much weaker league than the PL it’s hardly like going home to a L1 or 2 club.I think he was making a lifestyle choice.
The photo above at #130 depicts 2 players, Henrik and Emiliano, who deserve to be always remembered for everything they did for us, particularly in those last two memorable games.
I can see that one day, Peter Gilham will welcome them back on the pitch at BCC, when they visit, to enormous applause. ⚽️
I also agree with the idea that we should send them both a collection of appreciative comments from the GPG.
It’s a perfect move. He would have been torn a new one each week in the Prem.That plus potentially winning the top division in his home country, playing in the Champions League, and maybe being more visible to the national team for another World Cup. While it’s a much weaker league than the PL it’s hardly like going home to a L1 or 2 club.
Couldn't agree more and I also remember that moment. I'm actually very sad to see him leaving and am sure he'd have been a benefit to have in the top division for experience and calming influence if not his shooting!My favourite memory; TF looked to have turned the terrible start to his time as Manager with the brill Emmy cross and the powerful Lewis McLeod header against the Baggies; the WCB travelled up to GP from Cornwall, Devon and Somerset the following Saturday full of optimism that a new dawn had arrived; only to concede three unbelievably crass, woefully defended, goals against the dreaded Swansea in 25 minutes; after the third went in it was Henrik who led from the front, got the Team around him and made it clear that we had to, and we could, do better; and we did; and that moment after that third goal was the start of the turnaround that led to Wembley the Saturday before last.
I can clearly see him on the edge of our penalty area just opposite my seat telling the boys the SP; he has been a terrific servant to us and I muchly hope that we will continue to see him in West London; he will get my applause every time.
