MIGHTY, FALLEN SLIGHTLY

Is this what it has come to, Thierry?

Sharing a cut-price bill with KISS, at ‘Pizza Hut Park’?

P.S. According to New York Red Bulls’ website, TH14 hasn’t exactly exploded onto the MLS scene. Zero goals in five starts.

P.P.S. If you’re in the market for a haunting image to spice up your nightmares, here’s Thierry Henry as ‘The Starchild’ Paul Stanley.

    I’m sorry–what website are you reading? He scored last week (against San Jose). And this is a promo for Dallas’ stadium, not Red Bulls doing. Anwyay…

    Henry just scored last Saturday. It’s easy to make a dumb joke, and almost as easy to actually check the “facts” of your sophomoric article.

    Will someone please be so kind as to inform the New York Red Bulls’ official website about Thierry’s goalscoring exploits? They obviously watch as many Red Bulls games as we do.

    Hm. The game report is on their front page, but you’re right – on his player page it says his last match was over two weeks ago.

    I was at said Red Bulls game. Me and 21,000 others. Not bad for the 46th-best league in the world, eh?!

    P.S. Sorry for the annoyed tone in my first comment. It just gets very tiresome to hear constantly from people here in the US how crappy MLS is. It certainly can’t match the European leagues in quality of play, but if these nitwits would just get down to a match they’d see how fun it is – the supporters section are actually really passionate, loud and entertaining. But we Americans have this obnoxious entitlement mentality, like we can only have the best of the best. It’s probably why the amount of our debt is higher than our GDP. But I digress…

    Joey, those americans that you are describing don’t really like the sport. They just follow the sport because it makes them feel “sophisticated”. Which goes to show how little these people know about the sport’s fanbase. ;)

    If you were to drop one of these mocha latte swilling, Brazil shirt wearing, “I only started to watch this game in college” dandies into a stadium in europe they would get mugged.

    I also tire of hearing how “hard” fans are in England or Spain or wherever. It’s a sport. It’s fun to play and watch. It’s not an opportunity to prove how macho you are.

    I am in Toronto and therefore a TFC fan, but I am thrilled that Thierry Henry is playing for the Red Bulls. No, MLS is not up to the same standards as European leagues, but we are getting better all the time, and if you actually go to a game it is a great day out. And Titi has already shown that he is still in a league all his own.

    Anthony – I live in Seattle, and was a Seattle Sounders fan long before they joined the MLS (they were in the USL for years before moving up the ladder) – the fan base here is simply amazing. We average 36,000 a game (better than 1/2 the EPL teams), and for int’l friendlies it usually exceeds 65,000. The MLS averages more per game (over 18,000) than the NBA and the NHL. We are not, for the most part, fly by night, hop on a bandwagon fans..
