Why didn't Dunne wallop Henry?

At Villa we have been very proud to have a long list of distinguished Irish players: Staunton, Houghton, Townsend and of course God himself, Lord McGrath.

To that list, Richard Dunne is a very welcome addition so it was with great anticipation we all watched their World Cup qualifying play-off game against France.

For a long period of time Ireland looked very good and Dunne was magnificent as a leader and a fantastic centre-back.

Everything France threw at him he repelled with class and determination. Little was he to know that a cheat called Thierry Henry would then come along and change the whole game as it was appearing to head towards a penalty shootout.

So because of that piece of cheating from Henry it now means Villa, as it stands, will only have World Cup representation from the English lads who may be picked - and by the way, after Saturday James Milner looks a shoo-in, doesn’t he?

At the end of game we saw Henry and Dunne sitting together chatting: how Dunne did not wallop him I do not know. Has he just accepted it was part of the game?

Never mind … let him take out his frustration against Burnley on Saturday.
