Arsenal - Ashley Cole To Stay?

Arsenal - Ashley Cole To Stay?

Could it be that after a summer of macho posturing by Arsenal and Chelsea the talks and negotiations will amount to naught?

With the closing of the transfer window imminent, Ashley Cole took to the field in a red and white shirt once more.

A strong Arsenal reserve team spanked Charlton reserves in a clash at the Underhill stadium last night in a game that saw Manu Adebayor and Jeremie Aliadiere bag a brace each, however that's a sub point to this article.

It would seem crazy to me to risk injury upon a world class left back who is worth millions and millions of pounds if he were due to transfer to another club within the next 48 hours. If any deal were close to being done Cole would never have played for risk of him not being able to complete a medical.

Of course there are some wild conspiracy theorists out there that reckon Cole played in the reserve game last night to show the top brass at Chelsea that he is fit enough to slip straight into the side and would have no problems with a medical.

But that's just pure nonsense, isn't it?

I still think he'll go to Chelski and Gallas will be an Arsenal player on thursday.

But do really believe he'd have been risk in a nothing game LD? Or are you one of those who think seeing him play in that game was part of the deal?

wenger wanted to injure cole as he knows mourinho will buy him anyway! also he wants to push his price up by sort of saying 'we are thinking of keeping Cole actually, so if you want him then pay up'.

I hope he does stay for another year to be honest, we need that gap in the defence sealed ASAP!

But Tim, if he's stays for another year we will lose him reletivley cheaply. We need rid now I would have thought.

so if Gallas joins and cole leaves who plays left back? surely not Hoyte? I'd rather give Traore a go.

Traore, Flamini, Hoyte and also Clichy will be back in 6 weeks, surely a player who saw us to ten champions league cleans sheets can cover until then?!?!

Its a classic stand off... we'll see soon enough who has the guts to hold out longest... although I think Arsenal have most to lose from this.

I'm bored of the whole ******** thing. And I have been for ages now. Roll on friday and plenty of new signings (hah yeah right!!!) and then maybe we can start concentrating on actual football
