Gallas out for Ars but in for France, hard benches + news round up

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Good morning fellow Arsenal worshippers!

I’ll kick the morning off with the revelation that the President of Le List; William Gallas, is out indefinitely. Well, he is if you read this article, but if you read this article the previous article seems some what contradictory?

Anyway, going by quotes, it seems Wenger thinks Willy G is 2 weeks away from featuring. If you want to go by Sultana’s calculations, they seem to think the end of October is more realistic? Its all very confusing, I’m sure you’ll agree!

Having him out is a real blow for the team, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it? Or improve it? Or add a little more experience to it?

Ok, dumb proverb…

I tell you what though, his program notes better be amazing this weekend and I’m talking Dan Brown good…

Raymond Domenech blatantly read my blog the other day and got a little jealous of all the lime light I was giving the England set up about playing Michael Owen straight after an injury. So, to justify my hatred for him he has decided to call up the injured Gallas for this months Euro clashes. Just to rub salt in the wound, it appears the Spec Savers poster boy called the Czech manager as well.

In other news, Gilberto has been moaning about how hard the benches are in the new stadium. He is probably used to those tasty Recaro racing seats they have on the continent.

“I am on the bench not because of my quality or something like that but because I came back late. It is so hard.

He also talks about his respect for the manager and the other players; you can’t fault the Brazilians attitude can you? have managed to draw up an article identifying Sundays key battles, don’t look if you are of a nervous disposition.

Craig Gordon talks here about how he is looking forward to the game and how Sunderland can win. Many will be watching his performance with great interest. I think a lot of Gooners believed Craig Gordon was the keeper that got away. Only time will tell! There is also a piece about how Roy is Keane on pitting his wits against Wenger this Sunday.

There’s a little interview with young Mexican Carlos Vela here and Theo Walcott gives us an in depth break down on why our form has been so good this year.

Stan the man appears to have aligned himself with the Arsenal board, and it seems he may have opted to join in with the lock down agreement. This will certainly add some stability to the club at board room level. The prospect of Stan being the long term owner of Arsenal doesn’t seem half as bad as it did a few months back, no thanks to PR calamity Alisher “Jabba” Usmanov.

Finally, the Opta player of the Month went the Ade and the runner up award went to Cesc. I’m not overly surprised, but I am pleased!

And that’s it! Tune in tomorrow for a full match preview! Enjoy your Friday Grovers!

    That French CNUT Manager will always pick injure Arsenal players as he is a small minded prick and doesn’t like Wenger and uses up half his energy trying to flex his muscles as the almighty powerful one and pissing off club managers…. and stil the stupid French c*** has not picked Clichy.

    And to top it off, the wanker has given Vierra time off and left him out of the squad because and to quote “giving Vierra time off to recover and gain full fitness”……. double standarded French Fuckwit !!!!!

    As I’ve said before, it doesn’t matter how many share Usmanov gets, he needs a majority to control the club, and he won’t get that unless there’s a big time sell out.

    And that won’t happen. Bill Gates wouldn’t sell his shares in Microsoft would he? So why would Arsenal shareholders sell there’s? they’ll be worth more as each year goes by.

    If the current lock down were to be extended to 5 years, with or without Stan K then Usmanov will get bored and go away, it’s that simple.

    I’d liked to have had Craig Gordon but Sunderland are not a team that should bother us, we should win that one comfortably,

    Saw him in the evening and he was acting really strangely. I went shopping
    in the afternoon with the girls and I did turn up a bit late so thought it
    might be that.

    The bar was really crowded and loud so I suggested we go somewhere quieter
    to talk. He was still very subdued and distracted so I suggested we go
    somewhere nice to eat.

    All through dinner he just didn’t seem himself; he hardly laughed and
    didn’t seem to be paying any attention to me or to what I was saying. I just knew
    that something was wrong.

    He dropped me back home and I wondered if he was going to come in; he
    hesitated but followed. I asked him again if there was something the
    matter but he just half shook his head and turned the television on.

    After about 10 minutes of silence, I said I was going upstairs to bed. I
    put my arms around him and told him that I loved him deeply. He just gave a
    sigh and a sad sort of smile.

    He didn’t follow me up but later he did, and I was surprised when we made
    love. He still seemed distant and a bit cold, and I started to think that
    he was going to leave me and that he had found someone else. I cried myself
    to sleep.
