Ashley Cole should be sold, and soon.

67 comments July 16th, 2006

His comments over the past couple of days have been an absolute disgrace.  I don’t care about him not inviting Arsene to his wedding – who does invite their boss to a party?  But this simply will not do:

“Arsenal hung me out to dry, using me as a scapegoat to get back at Chelsea.  The board “rewarded” me with an insult, and threw years of loyalty back in my face.  I’ll reveal the shattering truth about who fed me to the sharks.  It changed my view forever on the club I regarded as family.”

Note: “regarded”, past tense.  The feeling’s mutual, Ashley.  Arsene seems none too pleased either:

“I don’t like it when there is too much in the newspapers.  Football players are there to play football and not to talk too much.  He has two years on his contract and unless we sell him he has a future at Arsenal.  I want him to stay, but there are three parties to have to want that.  With Ashley Cole, when one day he looks back on his career he will see Arsenal has helped him a lot and he is intelligent enough to make the difference.”

I’ve highlighted the part that I believe is most significant.  After this latest debacle, Cole surely will be sold, and it’s not unlikely that he’ll finally get his wish and join Chelsea.  It’s a shame, because he’s a brilliant player.  He’s also English, and a product of our youth system.  However, all of the above become insignificant when you consider just how massive a twat he is.

For all his transgressions, Patrick Vieira never openly disrespected the club with such bravado.  Cole’s autobiography is to be released later this year, and the “shattering truth” he threatens to reveal will do very little for team spirit, if the rumours I hear about it’s content are true. 

The “shattering truth” is that you’re a knob, Ashley.  Goodbye.

In my last post I speculated that there might be some transfer activity that day.  I was right.  However, it was not quite as exciting as I’d hoped, as we completed the signing of a 19-year-old who was thrown out of Watford Reserves for bad behaviour.  Well, now we’ve got Joe O’Cearuill we probably don’t need Lillian Thuram.

He made his debut in our first friendly of the summer, a dull 0-0 with Barnet.  Jeremie Aliadiere missed a hatfull of chances, and not very much happened.  The Cannon has a much better write-up, and a picture of pretty boy Hleb in our new kit.

After the game, Arsene suggested that he’d be making a couple more signings.  A new left-back is probably very near the top of his list.
