Beckham 2.0

14May10

Looks like Thierry might be about to make a huge mistake:

As reported by Sport, Barcelona striker and French goalscoring legend Thierry Henry has signed a pre-contract agreement that will see him move to the United States’ Major League Soccer to play with the New York Red Bulls after the World Cup.

After an initially rocky start in his first season at Barcelona, Henry had a successful year with the Blaugrana under coach Pep Guardiola. This season, however, the Frenchman has struggled with injury, and has seen his minutes cut down substantially with the club. He has been linked to a summer transfer away from the Camp Nou for much of the season.

Despite his age, ‘Titi’ remains a prolific goalscorer. During his time at Arsenal, the Frenchman scored 174 goals in 254 matches, while at Barcelona he found the back of the net 35 times in 78 games.

Look, he managed almost a goal every other game for the best attacking force in the world has seen in quite some time. He did this while play relatively out of position on the left wing. He still has a lot to offer, and unless he plans on international retirement after the World Cup, this move doesn’t make a lot of sense. If I’m Liverpool, I’m ringing his phone off the hook right now. He’s even said if he were to do it again, he’d want it to be at Liverpool. So why not?
