Gallas is fit again

By 1970’s Gooner

There are good news for Arsenal coming out of the France camp prior to their next Wednesday’s crucial game against Lithuania at Beaujoire.

Domenech is set to make some changes from the team that started in their 6-0 thrashing of the Faroe Islands last Saturday and there are mixed fortunes for the Arsenal players.

Sagna is expected to be rested with Diarra taking his place; but the good news for Arsenal is that Gallas is considered fit enough to claim a place in the team at the expense of Manchester United’s Patrice Evra on the left side of the defence.

He has been out of action since August 19th when Arsenal played a 1-1 draw against Blackburn at Ewood Park.

His recovery period at that time was put at six to eight weeks with a return expected by the beginning of October.

Gallas has been participating in the training sessions and the “in house” games being played at Clairefontaine since a week ago and has been raring to go.

Domenech knows that experience will be vital in France’s next two games which they have to win to have any chance of qualifying for the finals in Austria and Switzerland.

Let’s hope that Gallas and the other Arsenal players come out of next Wednesday’s game unscathed.

According to L’Equipe Florent Malouda is expected to be reinstated in the starting 11 after he was rested due to a knee problem. He will take Rothen’s place.

Gallas will probably play too soon after his injury. This is the pattern followed by a lot of impetuous footballers. he runs the risk of getting injured again.

The less Arsenal players play on Wednesday the better

By all accounts Senderos has pulled out of the Switzerland squad because of a back injury so this makes Gallas's return very timely indeed! At least it give's Arsene an easy dicision to make on Saturday if Senderos is ruled out. Wrighty7

If we can get Gallas fit again this will be a massive boost in one area we have been weak on recently.

With Gallas back again we will extract more revenge on Bolton who are by the way likely to be missing Anelka for the trip to the Emirates.
