Thierry Henry cheated last night and he got off with it !!! So what?? Many have done worse and many will do much worse than T did last night.
I am neither French or Irish so I feel exactly the same as I do when I think of all the cheating antics displayed by the likes of Ronaldo & co.
The sheer volume of hatred displayed on Twitter during last night's aftermath was honestly ridiculous, with many associating Ireland's World Cup exit with ........................Arsenal?????Last night had absolutely damn all to do with Arsenal. I am seriously amazed that anybody can suggest that last night's handball is suddenly going to make us forget what the wonderful Thierry Henry did for Arsenal and indeed world football.
In the same way that Roy Carroll didn't run up to the ref saying ''Hey ref, that's a goal man. I dropped it about a foot over the line then scooped it out'' Thierry Henry stayed quiet. I didn't complain when Scotland got that penalty against the Welsh at Anfield all those years ago when Joe Jordan clearly handled it. The whole thing is just a huge mountain out of a molehill and I would be disgusted if the game had to be replayed.
Cheating is not nice, but it happens and it always will. I think no less of you Thierry !!
