Chelsea defender William Gallas has not recovered from a thigh injury and will miss France's World Cup warm-up friendly against Slovakia on Wednesday.I wonder how much longer he's out. You have to figure that he's Jose's first choice left back when he returns (whether or not he wants to play the position).
In the mean time, I don't think Damien Duff will fill in again. So will Ferriera switch to the left to allow Johnson or Geremi to play at right back? Geremi certainly isn't a good option for fantasy managers as I think Yahoo! has him listed as a middie (Remember his great season at Boro? He was a fantasy stud!). But I don't think Jose trusts Johnson either. Will Essien cover right back?
Interesting choices for a team claiming to have 2 world-class players at every position.
Update: I failed to mention that this supposes that del Horno is out of favor. If not, he plays and is a great fantasy value at his original $5 value. At least until Gallas returns.
