OH those frightful French. It's all Thierry Henry's fault, of course. He's to blame for our financial predicament.
Didn't he only go and flout the laws of football, physics and fairness by deploying a sneaky hand to set up the goal that broke Irish hearts and scuppered our World Cup dreams in November 2009?
And worse, Monsieur Va Va Voom was allowed to vamoose scot-free. Quel dommage, we wailed. And then that was an end to it. No national boycott of Bordeaux wine, Renault cars or Louis Vuitton bags.
