Thierry Henry's return to Arsenal commences in the FA Cup, as the on-loan New York Red Bulls striker is available as a substitute in the Gunners' third-round match against Leeds United (2:45 p.m., Fox Soccer Channel).

The winner of the match has a fourth-round date with Aston Villa, a match that could pit MLS Designated Players Henry and Robbie Keane against each other should Arsenal advance and Keane's prospective loan to Villa from the Los Angeles Galaxy go through.

    doesn’t an American play for Leeds? Grella maybe? or was that just a loan?

  2. Poo says:

    “your running commentary” should be taken with a grain of salt.

  5. wallace says:

    Lichaj was on loan last year from aston villa.

  6. Richard says:

    Boring first half. Coq playing RB but got hurt so Nico Yennaris (young Greek kid) playing RB. LB is another youngster and natural CB, Ignassi Miquel. Hopefully Henry comes in and adds to his 226.

  7. Davidos says:

    Is he out there? How serious is his beard situation?

  24. bryan says:

    Man, why aren’t they passing it to Henry?? Arshavin and Ramsey could have pasded to a wide open Henry to ice the game…

  25. Gnarls says:

    Not as bad as Leeds.

  26. Gnarls says:

    He was huffing and puffing. No way he coulda gone 90 minutes. Still, the King has returned.

  27. GSScasual says:

    Do you know who Thierry Henry is?

  28. Angel of LA says:

    Well I’m glad Henry score in his debut with Arsenal and happy for the MLS player that are doing their things aboard and show that they can still and some can played in the big leagues. For Example Henry, Donovan, soon will be Keene for Aston Villa. One think that is most of the player going on loan to those team it belong to American Owners like Aston Villa and Arsenal. I wish Man U and Liverpool get some MLS player to play for them at least on 2 month loans. It will be great to expose American MLS player or from other nationality mls player. Well that is my thought.

  29. Angel of LA says:

    Yeah that was cool plus he look at Beckham who was there in the Stand and I like the way he was hitting his chest in front of Beckham like saying we can still play in the EPL even tho people think we all washed out for playing in the MLS, Stick it to them Henry all those haters…VIVA LA MLS
