Good he was finished here anyway.. Won't do shit next year and the Galaxy were pretty much forced to sign him after being turned down by just about every player they went after this past year.. Won't hit 5 goals this year so whats the big fuss.. He had a massive amount of opportunities last year and could get to the ball.. maybe as strictly a box striker sure, but I just don't see it with LA.. I got a feeling LA is going to suck bad next season..

DP salary and a multi-year contract? Wow. He needs to send Edson Buddle a nice bottle of wine.

Sad to see him go...
Happy he went to LA rather than DC or NE, or even the Bimbos in Philly for that matter.

Goal scoring? Will have to see but he will defeintely get better service with Becks and Landon showing him the love he so needed while with us in NY.

Metro reject? Can't really say so - we never called Cleatus or Gaven rejects...(not that I can remember anyway)

He's a classy player - hopefully if he does score against us in RBA, he'll be a class act like Robinson did when he score against his former TFC team.

Good Luck JPA...just not against RBNY!

So now LA has a washed up mid and a washed up forward with probably somewhere around $8,000,000 tied up in both.. great pick up LA.. Have a very, very strong feeling they will suck next season..

we should make some kind of official goal-scoring pool for next season, 5 dollar buy in, winner gets the pot.

FUCK FUCK FUCK

No, I don't think he's going to do nearly as well there as he did with us. No, I don't think we will regret not signing him. However, it's going to suck seeing him in a different jersey, especially fucking Los Angeles. Will be even more painful to see him playing against us.

Now it's the RedBulls fans. they may be even louder than the DC guys who, for reasons beyond imagining, had 50 seats saved for them up front.

Philadelphia: I love you guys, really, but you're getting schooled.

The noise in here is deafening.

This..

And if Henry doesn't score 15-20 goals next season, it was a huuuuge mistake by rbny (which I think it already is/was)

Hmm lets see....playing in Buddle's old role long side perhaps the greatest ever MLS player and its most dangerous attacking and assist threat in Donovan and able to get on the end of the best crosses in MLS from Beckham. Oh I think that bet I made with you is looking better and better all the time.

No way that if he is healthy he wont score 13-17 goals next season as LA's only legitimate forward. That will be enough to outscore NY's best I reckon.

Oh and it is a DP contract too.

So where are the dickfaces earlier saying no one in this league would pay him a DP contract?

Once Buddle left, we all knew it was only a matter of time. I AM surprised they went multi-year on him though.

I wish him well. And with Donovan feeding him, he probably will be productive.
