Thierry Henry Scored For Arsenal In His Homecoming Match To Put Them Up 1-0 On Leeds

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 Leeds makes the story that much more unbelievable. But there it is, above, proof that the French forward (on a two-month loan from MLS club New York Red Bulls) still has a bit left in him to compete in the Premiership. [Fox Soccer]

Update (4:45 ET): While the broadcast did not provide the usual enhanced offside line, it appears from some angles Henry was onside. You can stop emailing me now.
