2012 proved to be Thierry Henry's finest year yet in Major League Soccer, and now the Arsenal legend is back for a fourth season with the New York Red Bulls. The two-time MLS Best XI player will be looking to lead the Red Bulls to their fourth consecutive appearance in the MLS Playoffs and perhaps the first MLS Cup in club history.

Arsenal.com will once again track Thierry's progress throughout the season. Our Henry Watch page offers an overview of his performance in each game as well as periodic updates on the progress of other former Arsenal players plying their trade in MLS.


Thierry Henry Red Bulls
Portland Timbers 3-3 New York Red Bulls
Sunday March 3, 2013
Jeld-Wen Field – Portland, Ore.

Thierry Henry played the full 90 minutes in the Red Bulls' season opener against Portland. The visitors stormed to a 3-1 lead within 30 minutes, but conceded twice in the second half to settle for the draw. Henry led the Red Bulls with four shots.


Mikael Silvestre Timbers
Portland Timbers 3-3 New York Red Bulls
Sunday March 3, 2013
Jeld-Wen Field – Portland, Ore.

The central defender played 90 minutes in a rather inauspicious debut with the Timbers.  Silvestre made two errors in the first half that led to Red Bull goals. However, the Timbers settled down in the second half to hold New York to a draw.


Steve Zakuani Sounders
Seattle Sounders 0-1 Montreal Impact
Saturday March 2, 2013
CenturyLink Field – Seattle, Wash.

The former Arsenal youth academy player started the Sounders' season opener. Seattle dominated play throughout the game but were unable to break through the Montreal defence, led by former Italian international Alessandro Nesta.
