Gallas opts to join also-rans

Bill Gallas is poised to cross the big divide and join that lot and for me they are getting a class act but a flawed version given his sulky manner and tendency to throw tantrums.
Harold Redknapp clearly thinks he has another year of Premier League football in him but AW doesn’t (or he does but was unwilling to pay the going rate). I find it slightly odd that we didn’t keep him especially as we are so short in central defence. That may change if Seb Squillaci joins, of course.
Gallas, 32, is available on a free transfer after rejecting the offer of a two-year deal with us because it amounted to a significant pay-cut.
He is reported to be having medical tests at Shite Hart Lane today and you have to reckon that given that lot’s terrible display, especially defensively, against the wee nippers from Berne prompted Redknapp’s decision to try to land our former skipper.
Now he is close to agreeing a one-year deal at what will be his third London club, having arrived at N5 from Chelshit.
Redknapp said of Gallas: ‘He’s been an Arsenal player but he was at Chelsea before that and playing abroad before he arrived there. It’s not like we would be signing Tony Adams. He’s a good player and he would be a very useful addition to our squad.’

The big question: will he be cheered or jeered when we play them. I think cheering him would be a brilliant wind up on our chums from up the road, don’t you?
