Can't say much more than what others have. Professional, calm, happy but see he wanted to return as covid would have impacted seveely on his Access to family and that can't be replaced. Thanks Henrik.

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).
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.

A wonderful representative on and off the pitch for our beloved football club. I'll also remember Hendrik with enormous fondness.

Can't add anything to what's been said already. Thanks for everything Henrik.

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

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.

One's in English, the other in Danish?

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!

And what about our solitary goal in the Fulham PO final, which he almost willed in !

Such a great professional and leader on the pitch. Also an absolute gentleman off the pitch. When the players were coming out of the Brook Road entrance during the final lockdown games at Griffin Park my kids offered Henrik a crisp and he very politely said he loved crisps but he wasn't allowed to have one. So that's Henrik for me - fantastic player, international, leader, professional - and crisp lover.

With Vibe - an intelligent footballer planning his future.
Nice guys do succeed.
His controlled passion was the conduit between supporters and identity of the team
He got what we were about and what the club required.
Henrik was the mainstay of Thomas reign.
The most important part of this transfer is there is a senior group who sits down with Thomas and has his ear.
Pontus, Christian and Henrik were the 3. as one moves out another moves up.
150 plus games at one club in this day and age is a very loyal player.
Who replaces him in the team competing with Roerslev is gonna be a good watch.
A future in 3 years time in coaching and management awaits should he wish to pursue it.

It’s been a pleasure to watch you play for Brentford. Thank you for you efforts and getting the club to a level I knew they could, but doubted they would in my lifetime.

A tremendous player for our club, who has done everything, particularly in the last 2 critical games, to get us up to the Premier League.

Struck me as the ultimate professional, always gave of his best, and understood the passion of the Bees fans and what this club is all about.

With him, and likewise for Marcondes, I have tremendous respect.

To give his all and total commitment in these last games, which have determined the future of the club, and knowing that he was on his way, deserves the greatest respect and memory from all of us.

Thank you Henrik, and may your next career stage go extremely well back home in Denmark.

Best right back to have played for us in my time. Always played with a smile, but was never a soft touch. Will always have a soft spot for him and hope he does as well for Midtyland as he’s done for us. Bees legend.

A great ambassador for football in general. Played with determination, in the spirit of the game and always with a smile.
Thank you Henrik and good luck in the rest of your career

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 !?

A feet that wins the GPG hands down.

Great and often underestimated player for us. I always like players who play with a smile on their faces for us and after initially being too hard on himself he did that while being highly focused and determined.

Apart from those surprise, superb, final performances when some thought he would never play for us again I think his relaxed, confident and open press conference just before the Final calmed my nerves that we’d finally do it and showed on the pitch at Wembley his influence and the way the whole team had learned mental strength after last year. No tub thumping, no comparing ourselves to our opponents, just completely relaxed and focused self-confidence without a hint of swagger.

Hope Henrik has a great few years at FCM and a last hurrah at the 2022 World Cup.

And that moment when that damned reporter asked him whether it hurt that he hadn’t been picked for theEuros, and he showed in his face how much it hurt, and then channelled that hurt into brilliant delivery in our final.

A band of Vikings landed on the North East coast today in 793AD. They attacked Lindisfarne Monastery, stealing its treasures and slaughtering anyone who objected; only the tomb of St Cuthbert was left undamaged.

Now Henrik has returned to his motherland – coincidence?

Henrik was always confident but never arrogant. More than just an accomplished footballer. A leader on the pitch and a gentleman off it. His move back home seems a great one for him but he will be a very difficult act to replace. Good luck Henrik - and many thanks for your massive contribution to our success.

I think he was making a lifestyle choice.
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.

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.

Would be nice if he could be there at our first home game next season to say goodbye. Probably wouldn't be ideal with marcondes assuming he is staying in england, especially if he signs for the the breadman, yuk

It’s a perfect move. He would have been torn a new one each week in the Prem.

We need to accept that as per Rasmus’s comments, the regular top 8 PL teams are a major level above the rest of the PL and below. Spurs within that group were probably better than their 7th place finish, were higher when we played them and certainly had players against us far better than most lower placed PL teams do.

So not performing brilliantly against them doesn’t make Henrik or any of the rest of the team be not up to playing successfully in the PL. Also at the 2018 World Cup neither or the finalists managed to score down the side he was defending so he’s quite capable of keeping out better players than Spurs’.

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.

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!

Ermmm.....Pass ?
Jim Levack sums up my feelings pretty well here: https://beesotted.com/playing-football-the-dalsgaard-way-henrik-leaves-brentford-a-hero/

It could have done with a "I f***ing love Henrik, I do" at the end but, apart from that, it works for me.

P.S. I find it rather odd that there's still no official confirmation from the club that Henrik has left. Maybe we share Tweetdeck creds with the FCM admin and the announcement should have been a BFC contract extension? 🤔
