The Gallas Tackle Still Rumbles On!

Morning Insiders sory for the late post today but Eldo71’s up north following the Stoke game for us and it was my 40th birthday yesterday so I have a sore head this morning. Anyway here goes:
In the Daily Mail Angry Arsene Wenger hits out: You are all out to get Arsenal! :
Arsene Wenger has accused English football and sections of the media of a conspiracy against Arsenal and applying double standards.
Wenger is fuming at the criticism aimed at William Gallas after his damaging tackle on Bolton’s Mark Davies on Wednesday.
He attacked the readiness of so many to condemn his player while accepting Stoke’s right to kick the Gunners out of their stride in Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie.
Meanwhile in todays Sun Wenger breaks rule for Gallas : The Arsenal boss has a policy to never award more than one-year contracts to players over 30 years of age. But SunSport understands French star Gallas, 32, has been offered two years in talks that took place last week.
In today Express Arsene says Ban the bullies : ARSENE WENGER wants clubs By Matt Law banned from threatening to rough up his young Arsenal stars after Stoke’s Ricardo Fuller said Stoke will kick them out of the FA Cup tomorrow.
The Star today goes with Owen Coyle is quiet to stay sweet on Wilshere deal : Interview by Sami Mokbel OWEN Coyle was quite calm on the Emirates touchline considering William Gallas left Mark Davies in a heap on Wednesday night. And then I remembered … he is trying to bring Jack Wilshere to Bolton! To be honest, looking at the tackle in full speed, it didn’t look like a career-ender.
Over at the Guardian the Galles tackle still rumbles on with – Arsčne Wenger hits at double standards over tackle that bore no malice : Arsčne Wenger says there is one rule for teams when they kick Arsenal and quite another when the boot is on the other foot and he believes the double standard was evident in the matches against Bolton Wanderers over the past week.
The Arsenal manager is frustrated and bemused at the outcry that has followed William ­Gallas for his challenge on the Bolton midfielder Mark Davies at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday, which finished in a 4-2 home win. Wenger maintains that ­Gallas’s tackle was simply mistimed and his persecution complex has been fired not only by the repeated re-runs of the incident on Sky TV but by other, in his view, “malicious” challenges being overlooked.
