Is Thierry Henry A Cheat? Have Your Say Now

Just about every professional football pundit in the world has had their say - now its yours.

The following video clip shows what we all know - Thierry Henry is a cheat, but will FIFA allow the game to be replayed? Not a hope in hell I'm afraid.

Anyone who says he isn't is deluded

Deluded here.... I'd say the fact that he instinctively cheated doesn't label him an out & out cheat, or indeed a 100% cheat. He tried it on and got away with it. I don't by any means condone this behaviour but I for one will not remember Henry as a cheat, nor do I remember Maradona as a cheat, the fact we rolled the red carpet out for him........ Sickening for the Irish without a doubt and if it were replayed i'd say good. The real villain here is Platini, as we all well know. The man is a real danger.

I think even Wenger has said Henry should have owned up to the hand ball. Disgusting bit of cheating and there should be rules in place that if the ref misses things like this, the players should be punished. I think the bloke is quality, a great great player but he's lost all the integrity he built up over the years now, he should have been above crap like that. If England (or my team Villa) won a match with such blatant cheating I'd be ashamed.
The Fear
He is a cheat, no two ways about it, unfortunately I will always associate his name now with the word 'cheat'. It's a terrible shame as I had previously admired him as one of the greats of the modern era. 'Fair play' what exactly is fair here? 'the beautiful game' nothing beautiful about dishonesty. Shame on you Thierry Henry.

just sent this email to FIFA: Dear sir or madam, i am writing in protest of FIFA'S apalling decision to reject out of hand irelands play-off replay request against france. FIFA are bleating on about fair play and now,we have a clear cut case of cheating and they do nothing. Sepp Blatter should resign,he has been killing the game of football for too long and is a total and utter disgrace. FIFA yet again show that they preach a good message but are nothing more than a bunch of hypocrites who are out to line their own pockets. BLATTER OUT. yours sincerly micheal o'keeffe

Well he broke a law of the game to gain an unfair advantage and didn't own up to it, so if that doesn't make him a cheat then I don't know what does.
Kevinho
Well he did cheat, no two ways about it. I'm just amazed that everyone's acting like he's the only person in the world ever to do it, particularly when an Irish player was guilty of the same offence twice in the same game. And in fairness, he did admit it and has admitted it several times. I'm no fan of Platini, not at all. But this was a game under FIFA's governance. so what Platini has to do with anything I'm not quite sure. In fact, the irony is, Platini has been trying to implement another referee behind the goal- to much opposition. Had his idea been in place on Wednesday night, you have to think Henry wouldn't have gotten away with it.
Little Dutch
Cynical cheating. No doubt about it. He handles the ball TWICE and when Gallas puts the ball in he runs away celebrating. Henry, you are a disgrace!

http://www.football365.com/story/0,17033,13320_5706750,00.html Great article here from an Irishman. What if Henry had pulled Dunne's shirt before heading in a cross? Would we be seeing this amount of hysteria for an act of cheating? Honestly, the media throw some people a bone and everyone laps it up like the subservient, mindless little puppets they are.
Little Dutch
Yes, he's a quintessential cheat.
Johnny Baguette
Henry has finally made a statement according to the yellow ticker bar on Sky Sports News and a couple of his quotes were "Ireland definitely deserve to be going to South Africa" and "The fairest thing to do would be to replay the game". It now looks like he has done the right thing and apologised but he waited until after FIFA had already said that the game won't be replayed.
Kevinho
Little Dutch, do you seriously believe that Blatter did not implement the 11th hour seedings rule without first meeting with Platini??!!
RobsonGreensleeves
Yes he is. It was a deliberate act and looks worse everytime I look at it. I feel for the Irish because I know how cut I would be if it happened to my team. Very unfortunate and will not be forgetton for some time. Hang your head Thierry...for shame.
