Gallas: We Can Win Everything

William Gallas returned to action on Saturday after a lengthy layoff with a thigh injury. Speaking after the game Billy expressed his delight to be back and firmly believes Arsenal can win all 3 cup competitions this season.

Gallas completed 60 minutes in what I presume was a warm up for this weeks Champions League tie with PSV.

Later Gallas said,'We are still in the FA Cup, Champions League and the Carling Cup. You never know, we could win everything.'

'I certainly believe we could at least get to the final of both the FA Cup and the Champions League.'

'We have the quality to win everything.'

Gallas also believes the Gunners can get one over his old club, despite him not playing in the Carling Cup final on Sunday.

'In the league we drew 1-1 at Chelsea with a young team. I know I won't be involved as the boss has already decided, but they can do it,' he said.

'This team is not afraid and they are improving all the time. When I arrived at Arsenal, I was so surprised by the quality of all these youngsters.'

The French centre back also revealed his frustrations at being out and his delight and coming back.

'Initially it seemed I would be out for a month or six weeks but it took longer, I don't know why,' said Gallas.

'I spoke with the boss and he told me to be patient but I'm not a patient person.
All the players helped me, but I became very down during the injury and it was the most frustrating spell of my career.'

'Now I can forget about that. I want to win things with Arsenal. The team played very well while I was away. They are young but have a lot of quality.'

You gotta be in it to win it! If we can get the core of the squad fit and ready for this decisive period of the season we will be there or there abouts.

Seriously tho Jacky B i thought we just had a classic semi final? At this stage you will either get a plum draw (plymouth at home) or a Premiership club and with Arsenal, United and The Financial Doping squad all still in the hat (who today announced lossed of 80 million) there will be no cup giveaway!

Classic for you maybe! but a one off would be better. I know there are some tough draws out there, but the closer you get (even if by means of Plum draws) then the more belief and drive you have. Plus, you don't get an extra medal for beating hard teams. So... Plymouth at home please.

Seen as we have seem to have had some nasty cup draws recently, I want Plymouth or Watford at home. I know you have to beat the best to win the cup, but an easier cup draw would be very much appreciated please!!!

Even if yous lost the carling cup semi both legs were quality games in both halves and extra time, entertaining to the end and i'd still be saying that if you fellas won, the football you played in the first half at WHL was close to Arsenal quality to bad you couldn't keep it up (not taking the *****).

Just seen this on arsenal.com by wenger....................I dont have much choice in the middle of the park and some players have played more games. For example, Gilberto played with Brazil so I decided to rest him on Saturday; Fabregas only played 15 minutes for Spain. At some stage Ill have to rest him but now I have Denilson, and Diaby has come back, so they can play cup games.....................I think we have a lot of choice in midfield with Diaby, Denilson, Cesc & Gilberto. I don't see why Denilson & Diaby can only play cup games, by that statement it doesn't seem wenger has much faith in either of them!!

AG, I agree, they are ready. Do we have more central midfielders than we need? Flamini is getting matches as well. I don't want to think about one of them leaving, I like our midfield the way it is.
