Gallas Happy With 'Lucky' Winner

Gallas Happy With 'Lucky' Winner

After scoring an injury time equaliser against Man Utd at the Grove earlier this season, C'pn Billy Gallas went one better today and scored the only goal of the game to secure a vital victory over his old club.

William Gallas headed the winner in first half stoppage time as Chelsea 'crumbled' to only their second defeat under Avram Grant (coincidentally the other game they lost was also to title rivals). However the Arsenal captain felt there was a tinge of luck in his goal.

Gallas told Sky Sports 1: 'I was really surprised to see the ball come onto my head but sometimes you have to be lucky.

'Today I was a little bit lucky as Petr is usually a good, good goalkeeper.

''But it is more important to win and I feel the boys did need to win today against a good team. Everybody knows Chelsea are very strong.

'We know we now have six points (advantage over Chelsea) and that is very important.'

But lets face it, who cares if a fifty stone badger ran on the pitch and nodded in the winner? Three points is three points.

Happy days indeed TR7!! I was worried prior to the game having watched United scalped the Mickey's, but upon seeing Hleb's inclusion in the starting line up, I felt much happier. Roll on next Saturday!!

Majestic header, had to be him. How embarrassing for CSKA London they get caught with their pants down tapping away like Fred Astaire then when the deal eventually goes through at the final hour we shift an irritating loyalty free weasel who attempted to defend the indefensible in childrens' morality tale 'my defence' and we land a captain fantastic on the cheap. Anyone for Karma?

Wenger had this to say about Billy - "I believe as well that Arsenal is a special club where it takes sometimes a few months to be penetrated by the spirit of the Club. I think William this season has taken that completely on board, and he's completely the leader because he represents how we want to behave." How true !
