I don't have a short memory. As I said I loved Frank and I was there when he scored that screamer against Leicester.

As for Gallas, he was a terrific player and maybe those negative stories about him weren't true. Who knows?

Actually, Jane, I wasn't referring to you.

What negative stories? I just remember him as an outstanding player through and through who felt he had to leave so as he could play in his preferred position.

He refused to play and said he would make deliberate errors, get sent off or score an own goal if he was selected.

Or something along those lines.

Ah right, yes I vaguely remember that now. Was that confirmed as true?

It appears to have been leaked through normal press relations channels.  But seriously - a football player gets into an argument with club executives blocking his move.  Who cares what he said once.

Well in the context of what we were discussing, I do.

Seriously?  A player who wants to leave so he can play his best position gets into a childish squabble about what the club can and can't make him do, and makes the perfectly reasonable point that if the club picks him he can chose to play badly or even shoot an own goal.  And that gets used against him - not uneducated stroppy and rather silly player against highly qualified club negotiators, but by highly qualified negotiators against naive player.

There is a huge disgrace in there for me too.  Not by Gallas.

(And it was used to duck criticism that the club had lost Gallas)

I suppose it's best to ignore things said in anger or frustration, but it's hard sometimes.
