Let’s Revisit Thierry Henry’s Player-of-the-Week Performance

Granted, it came against last-place Toronto FC, but Thierry Henry put on quite a show for a sold-out Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, setting up three goals and scoring the fourth in New York’s 4-1 victory.

We enjoyed Shep Messing’s comment after Henry created the second of the two easiest goals Kenny Cooper will ever score in his career, drawing the entire Toronto defense–goalkeeper included—to himself before laying it off for Cooper in front of an empty net:

“I mean, how much more greatness do you want to see?”

Answer: Juuust a tad more—and Henry obliged with a sensational lob in stoppage time.

Take a look:

New York kept pace in the crowded Eastern Conference with the win, but they’ve got a tougher task ahead on Saturday, when they take on Chicago, who’ll be trying to knock the Red Bulls out of second place.

That one is at 3:30, on NBC—the flagship, network channel, not its cable offshoot.
