Not that I think it's fair, but there are referees, that's their mistake.
I read that Ireland would like to play the match again... so let's wait and see what happens.

Never miss a chance to rag on LD, eh nasuba. Even in a thread about a match between Ireland and France. Everyone needs a focus I suppose. Shouldn't you be off filling a ziplock bag with some bodily fluid, you know, for fun and all?

That earlier post was more of a compliment to him...he atleast makes them competitive(if only for one half)

On topic though Henry is a class act, and always has been one.

France are contenders

I dont know one person that was routing for the French to win. Ireland has a good team right now and it showed in both legs.

As of right now, France are far from contenders. Have you seen them play lately? They have been on a decline since the last WC. I dont see them changing much in the seven months. They wont make it out of the group stage.

Uh, no,

Class acts dont cheat. Especially in a match as big as that one. It was obvious that his handballs (there were two in a matter of two seconds) were intentional.

It isnt his job to ref the match...and he admitted it.

Henry is a class act.
