Billy No Mates

Billy No Mates

With William Gallas wearing the skippers armband at Arsenal there is rarely a dull moment.

Since his arrival we've seen temper tantrums, slagging off of the younger players, quality leadership skills, vital goals, unlucky own goals, life is full of surprises with Billy around.

So I really don't know what to make of Gallas' latest claims that he has no friends at Arsenal, only acquaintances, whilst all his real buddies still wear the blue of Chelsea.

When asked who his mates were at Ashburton Grove, he replied, 'Mates? Well, they are more like acquaintances. At Arsenal there is Theo Walcott but he is very young.'

'Really, it's the guys at Chelsea like Frank Lampard, John Terry, Wayne Bridge and Joe Cole. It always gives me pleasure to see them again.'

'We all have our own lives but when we see each other - especially Terry - we always like to spend some time talking together.'

'After all, I spent five years by their sides. There is always something between us. John Terry in particular. I like his mentality. He is a real warrior.

'In fact he is an example to me even though he is much younger than me.'

The man is a complete mystery he really is.

Not so hard to understand perhaps. After spending 5 years with a particular group most of which is still intact there is bound to be a closer bond. I would imagine that Henry is also closer to some former Arsenal players than to many within his current club.

What a shame. Oh well. Sell him and make Flamini captain.

It's not the fact that he is still friends with people at Chelsea, but after two years with us he has no real friends here. It's actually quite sad, I'm sure if I had to work somewhere where I didn't feel as though I had friends it'd make me think twice about getting another job.

probably an age thing--he may feel like the old man of the house at Arsenal.

That's a good point actually Jaelle, I think there is only Lehmann in his age bracket and he isn't exactly approachable is he ...... lol

Well I guess if you keep slaging off your workmates and act like a 3 year old when people need you........Not rocket science really!

Rocky, I'm a 48 year old mom and a fitness instructor, my classes are full of nice, friendly people most of them in their 20s and early 30s, a lot in their late teens. Nice bunch of people who I enjoy talking to and having a drink with. But as I've gotten older I've found the age difference does often matter in terms of social interaction. My favorite people to hang with are a group of people in their 40s and 50s whom I've known for years. A group of us play softball and football on most weekends and we all commiserate together about those damned aches and pains that we never used to feel in our 20s. I can see Gallas relating to Terry far more than, say, Ade.

I hear you J, I'm 30 next moth (aarrgggghhh) and most 18-22 year olds I know are not my kind of people. Nothing against them personally, but as I've grown older ive slowed down.
