He appears to be enjoying his football.
KR seems to have found his best position (He was brought in as a wide man and that's where Pep played him?)
He certainly seems to get in great positions and looks a very dangerous player. Not only does he score though, his all round play seems to have improved and he seems far more consistent.

Add his assists to that and looking even more impressive...

Is it me or is there no song for him?
I think he gets a belated version of ‘Ain’t Nobody’ for 30 seconds when he scores (again). Could certainly do with a proper song, if only to show how much the fans (hopefully!) appreciate him.

Unsung hero in my eyes, his goals at the end of last season kept us up, he just carried that on into this season. He a bit like Matt Murphy who also scored on a regular basis but never really got credit for it. Get him to sign that contract, he could be bazzers 20 goal a season man.

Moving further back hasn’t stopped him scoring, while he has improved massively performance wise since moving central.

Doesn’t have the pace to play wide but is one of our best players when played centrally, a big player to replace if he goes at the end of this season.

Those 18 goals have come in a team that must of been comfortably bottom half over 2018 results wise, while playing in midfield for a decent amount games, that’s very impressive, I doubt that many centre forwards have outscored him.

maybe this early 60s Rhythm n Soul could work with a bit of adapting?
( tis the only one that comes to mind that features 'Henry' -trivia: title Roll With Me Henry was changed to The Wallflower, as back when it was first released the real title equated to no radio airplay due to its risque implications )

He's contracted for next season.

Henry’s Pocket seems an apt song title.

Would like to see the East Stand singing a bit of Dream Pop. Will need a bit more reverb on that drum, mind.

Not just goal scoring record that's been impressive. Defensively he's played his part aswell. Defends front post really well on corners and made a crucial clearance of the line yesterday at 1-1. If I were going to be harsh the only thing that could improve is tackling. Got skinned to easily for there second yesterday. But he makes up for that with his late runs into the box.

He pretty much single handedly kept us up at the back end of last season, and his goals this season are a huge part of our recent climb out of the bottom four. I thought he was ineffective and occasionally outright poor when playing wide under Clotet, but the more centrally he’s used whether it’s in an advanced 10 role or this new deeper central midfield position, the better he’s been. Almost certainly our most important player over the last 12 months.

He has been impressive all year. I suspect that his improvement and Jack Payne leaving in January are not unconnected, Henry really stepped up a gear at that point. I always feel more confident with his name on the teamsheet.
