Gallas Calls For Cup And Euro Double

Gallas Calls For Cup And Euro Double

Arsenal defender Billy Gallas says that Arsenal have fallen too far behind Premiership leaders Manchester United to win the league this season.

Some Gooners thought that the additions of Gallas, Rosicky and Baptista would be enough to see Arsenal compete for the Premiership crown this season. They were wrong.

Arsene's young guns will not compete for the domestic title untill next season, that is my humble opinion.

Gallas agrees and says that the Gunners need to concentrate on the FA Cup and Champions League.

Speaking ahead of the FA Cup third round tie with Liverpool Gallas said: 'It's true the title is a long way off.

'We have dropped too many silly points and we're paying for it with our position.

'It's even more of a shame because Manchester United and Chelsea dropped off a bit.

'With three matches a week it's normal these teams have a tricky spell, even with their big squads.

'We should have taken advantage but we didn't. Now, apart from the Champions League, the FA Cup has become a big target for us.

Gallas is also hoping to make his return against Liverpool.

The Frenchman said: 'I don't know whether I'll play against Liverpool but I would really like to.

'I feel well and training is going really well. Every day I feel I'm getting back to my best.'

I'd also like to take this chance to say hello to my brother who is currently residing is sunny Ayia Napa.

Gallas is top quality and I understand what he's saying. I reckon the FA Cup will be in your trophy cabinet come the end of the season.
