Ashley Cole Saga Drags On & On
I wish this whole sorry affair would be over and done with, it's far too unsavoury and to be honest, it's getting a little boring now.
Cole claims he was 'fed to the sharks' and that he will 'reveal the shattering truth' in his new book. Well that doesn't sound like some cheap hacks words at all Ashley.
Reports filtering through this morning suggest that Chelski have tabled a £16 million bid for the England left back, however, it was my understanding that Cole has a £16 million buy out clause in his contract that would enable any club offering that amount to talk to the player regardless. The Times claims that the £16 Million was not confirmed in writing but just a handshake deal that Cole is now astonished to see Wenger has gone back on his word. Hurts, eh Ash?
I'm not saying that any of these reports are acurate, far from it, because one paper claims Le Boss want £20M, another £25M, another says we want Gallas in part exchange and a fourth says Moaninho told us to get lost. Another paper suggests the Chelsea boss offered Shaun Wright-Phillips in exchange but we're no longer interested in the little fella. I just wish it was over.
Many Gooners feel betrayed by what Cole has done, ok so he was harshly treated, but if he wanted a transfer why not just say? Surely we Gooners would have been able to understand that, but to go behind the clubs back and when you get caught still not admit it and further more you then go and slag the club off in your tacky chavy book.........well thats just not on.
Come on Chelsea, swap John Terry for him, you know you want to.
