Chasing Thierry: Bradley Wright-Phillips close to major New York Red Bulls scoring milestone

Once an RBNY trialist willing to do anything to play alongside Thierry Henry, Bradley Wright-Phillips could soon surpass his role model in even more statistical categories.

Bradley Wright-Phillips has broken so many New York Red Bulls scoring records that it's getting to the point where you might as well replace the club's record book with his Instagram page. Nonetheless, there are still some pretty significant milestones that #99 can add to his resume with good enough play.

Case in point, how does crossing the 100 goal mark and becoming RBNY's all-time leading goal contributor sound?

Per MetroFanatic.com, Wright-Phillips currently has 82 goals and 17 assists in all competitive matches for RBNY (MLS, MLS Playoffs, Open Cup, & CCL) for a grand total of 99 career scoring contributions.

One more goal or assist from Wright-Phillips would make him only the second player in club history to surpass 100 goals contributed.

The only player in club history to pass the mark is, naturally, Thierry Henry, with 101 goals contributed (52 goals, 49 assists) in all competitive matches. This of course means that Wright-Phillips only needs to score or assist two more times to tie Henry's mark.

As for longevity milestones, Wright-Phillips will tie Henry for 10th-most games started in all competitions in team history with his next start for the club. He also needs just over 200 more minutes on the pitch to tie or surpass Henry for 10th-most minutes played in team history.

Happy hunting Bradley!
