It's official, he is coming to New York. He is likely to make his debut in an exhibition against Tottenham on July 22nd.

Seems to me, Henry still has some good years left. I remember when he was with Arsenal..Wenger turned him into one of the top players in the world.

Good luck to him.

I have never been a Henry fan! He's always been a good player but a bit overrated in my opinion. It is a good thing for the MLS and the Red Bulls though...

I dont think he is overrated, he has been one of the best strikers in the world for sometime now and is still playing at a high level. He has great composure in the box and can create his own chances which is a rare trait in MLS forwards. Henry and JPA makes a dangerous striker combo. I am sure the NY franchise will find a way to screw it up though.

I have never thought he is one of the best strikers in the world! In my opinion, he misses alot of chances and then complains to the ref. I know you know soccer best and your opinion is the best so I apologize in advance.

Awesome! I heard a rumor Marquez from Barcelona is also signing with the Red Bulls. Any truth to that?

Nah, the year Arsenal went undefeated Henry dominated the EPL with highlite plays one after another. It must be regarded as one of the greatest seasons by any player in history (and the rest of his time at Arsenal was nearly as good).

Here's one of my favorite Henry goals from the season of the Invincibles.

It came right after another tying Arsenal goal, and put the Gunners ahead for good.

Rumor is that they are planning on signing a 3rd DP but it has not been announced yet.

Henry, not Beckham, is the type of player the MLS needs. Someone who can turn the game on it's head with his dribbling and wow-abilities. Aside from set pieces, Beckham lacks this crucial element. Henry has it in spades. I'm sure he will be a success in the MLS.
