Thierry Henry’s uncalled handball in a World Cup play-off was a major reason France qualified for the 2010 tournament instead of Ireland. Today, the head of the Football Association of Ireland confirmed that FIFA paid off the FAI to avoid legal action.
Few things in sports are better than that collective "Ohhhhh" you hear from a soccer crowd when a player pulls off a stunning bit of skill like Thierry Henry's little move here. Commentator guy is right, even if it was only in the Steven Gerrard Testimonial, this is "one of the most ridiculous passes you will ever…
So, what we have below is an updated list of every MLS player's salary. There are some things worth talking about.
Thierry Henry popped in a goal in the 45th minute Saturday to put the New York Red Bulls up 2-1 over the Columbus Crew, but he wasn't in the mood to celebrate.
Wow. What a sporting night. Not every night brings us a historic accomplishment 17 years in the making, but that's exactly what we got in New Jersey last night. I'm talking, of course, about the New York Red Bulls clinching the MLS Supporters' Shield.
This goal came off a corner kick in the 88th minute to put the New York Red Bulls up 2-0 on the Montreal Impact.
New York Red Bulls teammates Thierry Henry and Dax McCarty hooked up for a nice goal off an Henry corner kick in the Red Bulls 3-1 win over the Columbus Crew. Poor Crew goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum made a hell of an effort to stop it, but he came up short.
Arsenal bounced back from a 1-0 deficit to steal a 2-1 win at Sunderland thanks to Thierry Henry's goal in the first minute of injury time.
Call it a fairytale, call it destiny, don't call it offside (which he was, most definitely) but Thierry Henry scoring for Arsenal—where he scored a club-record 226 goals between 1999 and 2007—is a story from the pages of British pulp fiction. That he scored the deciding goal in the Gunners' FA Cup match against…
After months of presumably crashing on friend's sofas and living an Alan Partridge like existence in travel lodges, the good news is that Thierry Henry has finally splashed out on a snazzy New York flat.
Put "Strutter" on repeat and head to Dallas because for $40 you can see FC Dallas play New York and then come back two days later for KISS! One of the target audiences here probably feels insulted. [Press Coverage, pic too]

Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
Wondering how Major League Soccer plans to cash in on whatever increased popularity emanates from America's World Cup run? Probably not, because they've been teasing you with it for a while now. What better time than just before kick-off of what may end up being the Game of the Century ... So Far to readdress it,…
The French striker is reportedly maybe coming to the MLS's misnomer-laden New York Red Bulls, just as soon as France is knocked out of the World Cup. Or he isn't. Or he is, but we shouldn't talk about it yet.
Was it fate that brought down the dullest man in sports? Or was it something...sharper? We take a look at the history of Gillette pitchmen, and the woes that befell them soon after. Presenting, the Gillette Curse.
Ireland's World Cup dreams die, and France's live on, thanks to a goal that saw two strikers clearly offside, and a pair of blatant Thierry Henry handball assists to boot. The Irish, as you might expect, aren't taking this well.
Brazil has capped a tournament full of uninspiring play with more of the same, but this time, they weren't able to get away with it. A peaking-at-the-right-time French squad got a goal from Thierry Henry, slotting home a free kick from the man of the match, Zinedine Zidane. Zidane was brilliant all day long.
