Gallas Out Of Charlton Clash

Gallas Out Of Charlton Clash

William Gallas will miss Arsenal's away tie at the Valley on Saturday after suffering a hamstring injury last night.

Since Billy joined from the Chavs he has been a rock in defence, arguably one of Arsenal's best players in the victory over Portugese champions, Porto in the Champions League last night. However his powerful performance came with a price as the Frenchman appeared to pull up with a problem in the 89th minute.

Today Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the pacey defender will definately be out of the game against Charlton on Saturday but we will have to wait and see after that.

'Gallas has a hamstring problem," said Arsène Wenger. "It looked to me very serious. We hope it's not too bad, but for Saturday certainly he'll be short. [After that] I don`t know, if he will be available for the French national team or not.'

The injury to Gallas came on top of another defensive blow after Johan Djourou was pulled out of last nights starting eleven after suffering an injury in the warm up. We still await news on Djourou's injury.

Surely you could have found a picture of Billy in a Gooner shirt.

We are only allowed a certain amount of pictures (it costs money) and I was given a deadline for my choices of pictures for this season, unfortunately Gallas joined Arsenal after that deadline had passed :(

Good stuff. Every time I see Big Bill in an Arsenal shirt now it brings me great joy. No wonder Chelsea we so f***** off with us stealing him. Great going forward, superb defender and from what I have witnessed in the last few games a wonderful communicator and leader. Oh!! but we did lose Ashley Cole.

This could be a big blow for us, Billy G has been tremendous. If Johan is not fit I reckon Gilberto will drop in at centre half with the beast in midfield.
