It started with Arsenal News review who broke the news about a team meeting at 12.45 from an inside source, now Talksports radio have broken the news from another inside source, So I feel confident that this is likely to be true, despite the tight lipped response from the club. So William Gallas is no longer Captain of Arsenal Football team, neither is he at the Team Hotel, and having been dropped by Le Boss for such a key game, how can he stay at the club. The new book coming out has not helped matters, neither has his comments suggesting that he would like to end his career in france at either PSG or Bordeaux.
Many will reflect upon the hysterics at the Birmingham game where Eduardo got injured, others will point to the time that Cashley Cole went to Chelsea in 2006, and Arsene Wenger pulled off a great coup by signing him. His first season was not enlightening and many questioned his motivation. he was never really a typical Arsenal Captain, he was moody and recently his performances have suggested that he is not able to deal with the pressures of modern football in the Premiership.
Apparently there has a bit of ill feeling between Samir Nasri and William Gallas during the French national team. He has made some sensible points in his outburst with regard to the passion to win as exhibited by the young players. This outburst should have been handled the Arsenal way, Behind close doors. We lost Gilberto for this guy…
Was it really all worth it?
For the goals against Chelsea and Man Utd, we thank you…
But Au revoir mon pote!
A statement from Arsenal Football Club is expected this evening and as soon as this hits the wires, I will add this to the Blog.
It is thought that Gallas resigned after a team meeting and Manuel Almunia will take temporary charge of the armband.
