    Absolutely robbed, absolutely disgusting. To come out afterwards and declare "yes it was handball but it's the ref's fault for not blowing"...Henry, even as a gooner I had resect for you as a player, but if you knew that you own up at the time, don't wait until it's too late to make a difference!

    Henry is a cheat.

    He is basically coming out and lying about it all and said the ball hit him! what ever!

    Platini will be happy eating his snails this morning.

    Tossers.

    I can't believe Dunne didn't attack him whilst he was consoling him.

    Henry should have admitted it at the time, Di Canio would have owned up!

    One thing im not getting is people saying Henry is such an honest player?!?!

    Errr.. In the last world cup Henry cheated against Spain.

    The guy loves it, great player, but a cheat.

    I feel sympathy for Ireland & was rooting for them last night. TBH, I didn't think France scoring (regardless of how it happened) was against the run of play. I just can't help but think of the Duff & Keane chances that they really should have burried.

    Henry was right that it's not his responsibility to hold his hands up (pardon the pun), but for him to turn round this morning & say it wasn't deliberate. Unforetunately we're going to have knobs like Jeff Winter on Sky Sports News saying shit like "if Sky Sports are going to say it was accidental, don't bother to ask me to come on here anymore".

    pray

    Words cannot describe how gutted I am over that result. To be honest I don't blame Henry, as any player, even on the Irish team would have taken that goal, but how on earth can the ref and and linesman not have seen that handball? Or the fact that it was offside? We were the better team on the night, but we should have killed it off far earlier. In fact we should have won 3-0 in normal time, but it was one of those games where luck was needed, and France got it. I sincerly hope that referee does not get to participate ina single game at the world cup.

    I think over all we shut up alot of our critics, and showed that cunt Domenech we are far more than "Englands B-Team".

    And how Plantini and Sep Blatter are able to get away with their sheer biase and scheming is beyond me.

    I think it's a tad harsh on the officials tbh. When you look where the ref was (I'm sure Sweatsock will confirm) in the correct position, the linesman was on the far side of the field. A lot of bodies in the way & it happened very quickly. Easy to spot with umpteen replays in slow mo from every angle. Not surprising they didn't see it. He had a pretty decent game other than that incident IMO.

    Nothing too surprising. Group G is the GoD. U.S. gets a more-than-favorable draw. I just did some research on ticket prices for matches, as well as air fare. Man is it expensive....what I would give to be able to go.

    Bad sign for England when the back up players (Robinson and Brown) would rather quit than play for their country, Scholes is also saying he wont reconsider his retirment either. Wednesdays match could be interesting Very Happy

    Can't say I blame either of them tbh. They're both 30+ & I can see why they wouldn't want to fly all round Europe to warm the subs bench. Even if they do get a game, they're not likely to be first choices when the big games come round, so what's the point?

    But it used to be the biggest honour in football to play for your country or be called up with the chance to play, players now a days see it as a major irritation and prefer to retire than turn out. Too much money and not enough pride.

    Success!!

    On October 9th, I will be attending my first professional soccer match. A few friends and I are driving down to Chicago to see the US national team against Poland.

    I couldn't be more excited.

    You really should try and attend some MLS games, especially if you want to see the sport build over there.

    How much were tickets and how easy were they to get?

    And outlaw is correct, help support your local team, even if they're in the minor leagues or whatever you guys call it. Smile

    Tickets were only $50, and they're very good seats at that.

    I can't support my local team, because we have no local team. If Minneapolis were able to get an MLS team, I would absolutely be there. Closest team we have to me is Chicago, and that's a 7 hour drive. Aint gonna happen.
