Thierry Henry won't stop helping the Red Bulls

The former Red Bull can't just let this team succeed on its own. By now, we all know how much Thierry Henry's ghost has helped the New York Red Bulls score goals this year. He helped Bradley Wright-Phillips score against rival D.C. United. He helped Mike Grella score his first MLS Goal which happens to be the Red Bulls' 1000th goal ever. The latest sighting though is tough to believe. Our resident ghost hunter, Rob Usry, has spotted him popping up to help the team (and me) win in the FIFA 15 video game! The link with Wright-Phillips seems to be strong, and he seems to like messing...

The truth behind Mike Grella's goal in Columbus

The Ghost Hunting department has been busy... Did you see it? Did you see Mike Grella's game-winning goal against Columbus? Yes, that Mike Grella: the occasionally magnificently bearded journeyman who had played for eight clubs since 2009 and fetched up at the New York Bulls because he needed a ninth and RBNY needed a replacement for Thierry Henry. Except, of course, RBNY doesn't need a replacement for Thierry Henry. The Henry era was about making the best of having one of the best-ever players of the game. The post-Henry era is about making the best of having the players who are on the...

It's a New Red Bulls in 2015 Without Thierry Henry

After the retirement of Henry after last season, the Red Bulls have changed their style to move on from the Frenchman. Thierry Henry is a legend and Columbus Crew SC agrees. "Thierry's one of the greatest in this sport and there's a lot of respect to him for all that he did," Crew SC forward Kei Kamara said. "Coming to MLS, being very respectful of the league and the players, and performing day in and day out." "There's not many like him," Black and Gold head coach Gregg Berhalter said. "There's a handful of guys at that level and who have consistently been at the level and he's certainly...

New year, no Henry: Focus shifts to Wright-Phillips and Sam versus Red Bulls

New year, no Henry: Focus shifts to Wright-Phillips and Sam versus Red Bulls

Any team -- except for maybe the 2010 FC Barcelona squad -- is going to experience a dropoff when losing a player like Thierry Henry. But with a new coach and new midfield, the New York Red Bulls have shown little, if any, sign of slowing through two matches in 2015. Read More

You'll never believe where Thierry Henry showed up vs DC United

Don't buy the hype: the Henry effect is real... You might have watched Sunday's home win for the New York Red Bulls and thought perhaps the team was showing signs of not suffering too greatly from the absence of club legend, global soccer superstar and friend to angry cats, Thierry Henry. You might have watched Bradley Wright-Phillips score an extraordinarily good goal with the sort of ostensibly casual control and unwavering focus that #14 used to bring to the Arena. And you might have watched BWP dropping deep to collect the ball, turning to run at the back line, scouting his passing...

How did this Thierry Henry picture go unnoticed?

Seriously, how did we not know about this before? Former New York Red Bull star Thierry is a photogenic man. Michael Regan/ But this picture, which we found when going through some photos in the archive, takes the cake. New York Red Bulls player Thierry Henry attends Roger Federer of Switzerland play against Gael Monfils of France during their men's singles quarterfinal match on Day Eleven of the 2014 US Open at the USTA Billy Jean King National Tennis Center on September 3, 2014 in the Flushing neighborhood of Queens borough of New York City.

D.C. United versus New York Red Bulls preview: Behind Enemy Lines with New York blog Once a Metro

We talk to Jason Iapicco to get the low down on all things energy drink. As is our tradition here at SB Nation, we reached out to the people running Once A Metro to get the low down on the New York Red Bulls. Jason Iapicco was kind enough to answer our questions. Questions for Once A Metro B&RU: Can Bradley Wright-Phillips be as effective this season without Thierry Henry there beside him? OaM: Absolutely. In fact, he scored last year without the help on Henry on many occasions. Theirry Henry's presence being the reason BWP got 27 goals last year is a load of crap. Granted, Henry was...
