Gallas Close To Arsenal Return

Gallas Close To Arsenal Return

Arsene Wenger says that Billy Gallas is close to making his first team return.

Gallas, 29 has now been missing since November after suffering a thigh injury.
Arsenal have clearly missed Gallas as they continue to leak goals you would really expect a team of such quality to defend.

Arsenal have attempted to bring Gallas back to fitness twice since he suffered his injury last year but both times it has been too soon and he has suffered a setback.

Wenger says he will not be making the same mistake this time.

'We rushed him back every time and he had one or two setbacks, but now we are relaxed about it and we don't set any time at all. He will be back soon.

'The good thing is he is progressing well, but to say he will be back next week, certainly not.

'In two weeks, maybe.'

A return to training so soon could see Gallas face his former employers Chelsea in the in the Carling Cup final on Febuary 25th.

It would be a great disappointment to not reach at least the semis in my view.

it would be a great disappointment if we dun win it this season, dun want us to think that lets reach the last four atleast, no way, nothing other than winning it will do. last year's defeat still hurts, and that is what that's gonna motivate the lads to go one better this time..

I hate to say it, but there isn't much precedent for a loosing finalist to return the next season & win.......didn't Valencia get done in consecutive finals? Would be fantastic if we managed to get to Athens again though, just think about the future with youth on our side

precedents are there to be set tho!, thing is having got to the final we got the hunger and wanna set right the hurt and if anything our squad is more complete and solid than last year, someones got to get it and we're right in the mix.

Toure needs a breather. As soon as Billy is back, king Kolo should be rested.

I agree G4L. I think Toure has only missed one game this season (?) and that was through suspension.
