PST Player of the Week: Red Bulls’ Thierry Henry (again)

4 Comments

Sometimes the world makes no sense. Like Lionel Richie adding a country twist to his old songs? Seriously?

So I appreciate things that make perfect sense. Like Thierry Henry as ProSoccerTalk’s MLS Player of the Week. This is the universe in perfect alignment.

Because David Beckham can fuss and feud all he wants. D.C. United’s three DPs can stretch their goalless streak as far as they want (although Dwayne De Rosario seems ready to crack the code soon). Vancouver and that power pack attack can keep right on a’strugglin’ to turn up goals. None of this mess seems to add up, but who cares?

Not when Henry is proving that up is up and down is down, showing that some things work just as the big referee in the sky intended

World famous Frenchman. World Cup winner. Still among the world’s upper echelon striker’s – and the man now leading MLS goal scorers, topping the chart while guiding his Red Bulls into the Eastern Conference safe zone.

Henry’s hat trick in the 5-2 win over Montreal is plenty to earn this former Gunner his second consecutive PST Player of the Week.

Past Winners:

  • Round 1: Kalif Alhassan, Portland
  • Round 2: David Estrada, Seattle
  • Round 3: Thierry Henry, New York
  • Round 4: Thierry Henry, New York
