Is Thierry Henry A Cheat? Have Your Say Now

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.

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.
20/11/2009 11:57:00
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.

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!

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.
