Forwards in any team are vital. Without goals, you can't win games. I once heard one commentator state "no one comes to a football match to watch defenders". So to pay homage to the players that win matches, I will determine who the best forward in the MLS is.
Probably the most well-known forward in MLS, Henry has had a glistening career in Europe prior to his American debut. He started his career in the principality of Monaco where he spent five years playing in Ligue 1 before he moved to Juventus. However Arsenal came knocking and he quickly swapped Serie A for the Barclays Premier League. Part of the invincible team that took the Premier by storm, Henry became Arsenal's all-time top goal scorer. But Henry left his beloved Arsenal in 2007 for Barcelona and won the UEFA Champions League. "Mr va va voom" joined the Red Bulls in 2010, has since become an ambassador of the sport in America and has scored 25 goals since 2010, Henry hasn't played every game. However his influence on the pitch is second to only David Beckham. He has achieved cult status in fewer than three years.
