    • But remember- the French have friends in high places - a bt of a travesty though

    • ALTOGEVER NAAAHHHH......


      'SAME OLD ARSENAL....

      .....ALWAYS CHEATING!!!'


      Never gets old!!!

      Remember that France game when he held his face and went down when not even touched, now THAT was comedy!!!

      Where was Platini then, eh?!

      And just for the record, Wenger 'didn't see it' neither!

    • Yep he deliberately cheated and will rightly be admonished for it. Why has this been raised on the Arsenal board though is a complete mystery as he left our club two and a half years ago! Also not once did he cheat in an Arsenal shirt - he didn't need to as defenders could never get anywhere near him.

      No surprise a Spurs fan raised this as she probably remembers his goal in a 3-0 humping when he ran the full length of the pitch to score and then ran back to celebrate in front of the Spurs fans. One of my favourite Henry moments!

      • your comment -No surprise a Spurs fan raised this as she probably remembers his goal in a 3-0 humping when he ran the full length of the pitch to score and then ran back to celebrate in front of the Spurs fans. but when Adebayor did this you guys were very upset I seem to remember? he even got a ban ...did Henry? dont think so ....still its all fair isn't it (sic) ?

      • Let's be a little charitable, and say that the ref, two linesmen, and the 4 th official were all looking towards the French goal, because the action was obviously there and not in the Irish penalty area, when Henry cheated twice, but how they never saw the FIRST handball, by the French no 17 I will never know. I also noticed the French manager's Whinger - speak.' I never saw it ' .

    • "noone asked u to read my post"

      Uhhh, You did when you opened with a question directed at me!

      "john, how is it sour grapes?"

      P.S

      "anyway im not going to bother responding to u"

      Uhhh, you kinda shot yourself with that one. Women always like to have the last word. The only thing missing from your posts is the word 'whatever'

    • Fact is, Ireland were up against a team FIFA decided to seed at a late stage with the aim of getting them and others through.
      We all know the influence our favourite Frenchman, Platini has on world football - if you are up against such a team, you have to take your chances and Ireland had enough to win that game.
      Going on about Henry or the ref is not the whole story, Ireland really should have added to their score, having said that, I am not condoning what Henry did.

      I think the situation surrounding that match was just a pre-cursor of things to come.I predict the most fixed corrupt WC ever putting even some of the events in South Korea in the shade, I can see Brazil winning with France and an African team going a very very long way, this despite Spain being the best team in the world at the moment. Brazil vs an African team in the final would probably be Sepp Blatters dream scenario.

    • wow john, i'm surprised you actually understood it. Been learning big words, have you ?

    • someone cheats & u go on about a goal he scored yrs ago.
      talk about irrelevant.
      its a joke he got away with cheating & i feel really sorry for ireland.
      good point about the late decision to introduce seeding when they realised some big teams could be drawn against each other.
      football is losing integrity way too fast.
      iv just come to accept that everything is geared to helping the bigger club teams, but surely not the bigger countries as well.

    • When FIFA panicked as other big countries looked like they might ened up in the play offs and a free draw (as the rule was) could pit them against each other, in favour of seeding it.....................That was when not just big clubs had the deck stacked in their favour.............But countries as well Spursbabe.

      No going back now. After so many big football nations coming so close to a play of system that could have seen them knocked out and FIFA's money macking flag ship event ruined...........FIFA will never let the chance happen again

    • One thing I don't understand about all this is that France drawing is supposed to have deprived ROI going through, as France won 2:1 on aggregate. How does that work as it would have been, on aggregate, 1:1 AET. Wouldn't they go to penalties?
