Theo Walcott admits he learnt a lot from Thierry Henry, but insists Arsenal have "forgotten" about him after starting the season so well.
Walcott is eager to forge his own reputation as a Gunners legend after his stellar display against Slavia Prague invited caparisons with the Frenchman.
Arsenal have thrived since Henry's summer departure to Barcelona with last Tuesday's 7-0 Champions League thrashing of the Czechs bringing their 12th successive victory.
Arsene Wenger felt offloading Henry would force the club's youngsters to shoulder more responsibility - and the likes of Walcott, Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie have responded in mesmerising style.
"In a way everyone was disappointed when Thierry left," said Walcott.
"But at the same time we have sort of forgotten about him at the moment with us doing so well.
"However, he is doing brilliantly at Barcelona and I wish him all the best."
