Impact fans gonna get great sideline and press conference comedy at the very least.

And if he figures out how to be a good coach, well, that's not a full sleeve of Montreal on his arm...

RED. BULL. OUT.

Makes me think too that Armas is not gonna be replaced. Even if Henry isnt exactly Sir Alex, Armas obviously needs to go and this would have been the perfect opportunity to act. Realistically any other top choices are occupied with their own projects/teams at this point and if RB did hire a new guy it would probably be some MLS journeycoach not much better than Armas. Sweet.

He's still a better player than pretty much their whole roster.

Bonne chance, Titi!
Hope he can pick up the Québécois dialect!
Was RB ever in the picture?
Montreal Gazette article does not mention
that he played for RBNY:

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Stands were not full for TH when he played for us!
But, I do agree that there will be a bump for the game.

It's gotta be about the $$$$$$.  Guessing Armas is a lot cheaper than Henry would have been.

Henry also would want a say on style of play. Rbny would want the next coach to embrace pressing.
