WC Qualifiers: The Thierry Henry Show

So, guess we’d better talk about this whole Thierry Henry situation then.
We watched the France v Ireland game live last night, and thoroughly enjoyed the always sexy Irish and their fighting spirit as well as the very pretty French team in their brilliantly tight kits. Of course, now our happy memories of both are squashed by the furore over Thierry Henry’s handball. It’s a craptastic way to win and lose a massive game, that’s for sure.
A variety of opinions for you to consider (we’re struggling to find any that take up much by way of defense for Thierry). What’s yours? If the goal had been disallowed, do you think Ireland would have gone on to win the game? Is the ref to blame?
More from the other WC qualifiers later.
