|Quoting GrahamHill (Reply 230):|
These are serious accusations. Can you prove it with documents or testimonies from FIFA members?
I dont need to prove it. Im just a poster on a.net. But the rest of the world knows it. According to your own newspapers, the rest of France knows it too.
It is plainly obvious. The rules of the game were changed mid way through the qualifiers in an unprecedented fashion. Uniquely, Ireland had to play its last game AWAY from home.
Too many things going against us there, wouldnt you agree?
Quite obviously so did France. You couldnt manage to score a LEGAL goal in the match. We, on the other hand, were quite able.
You are fighting a losing battle here gentlemen. The weight of world opinion, and even of French opinion is against you.
Unfortunatly it seems that on a.net, we have the 12% of French people who dont realise this.
Your countrymen do not agree with you, and I will forever love the French for being so fair on this point. Your country and people have risen to new heights in my estimation.
Enjoy your world cup.
