Number One Is Perry Groves.........

Number One Is Perry Groves.........

Perry Groves is an Arsenal cult hero, and not because of his incredible talent. He wasn't the best player in the world in his position, and he didn't change the stature of the club, but we love him.

Ashley Cole is without a doubt one of the world's best left backs, in the Arsenal team anyway, he does have bags of talent and helped himself to many a medal in the red and white of Arsenal. But we hate him.

Perry Groves, who's book 'We all live in a Perry Groves World' is out now and easily outselling Cole's piece of trash (but then again Woman's weekly outsells that), has spoken about how Cole no longer has a place in our hearts.

'Ashley has no affection or empathy with any of the fans now.' Said Groves.

'It's not just because he left the club — the problem was the way he did it. He showed a total lack of class. If you were to ask any Arsenal fan if they thought the club would have reached the Champions League final without Thierry Henry, the answer would be no.'

'But if you were to ask them would they have done it without Ashley, the answer would be yes — and that's exactly what they did last season. People forget that Arsenal made it to the final without even their second-choice left-back playing.'

'Left-backs don't make that much difference to your team. But Ashley was a bit too full of his own self-importance. He felt the club should treat him the same way as Thierry Henry and try just as hard to keep him.'

'But the difference was Arsenal simply couldn't afford to let Thierry go. considering the team will always be built around him, of course Henry was going to be the most important player.'

'Left-backs will change your team by one or two per cent. Centre forwards will change it by 10 per cent — and that's why they go for bundles of money.'

'Ashley was never going to be treated the same way as Thierry. It's as simple as that.'

'Ashley's a world-class left-back but playing for Arsenal will always suit him better than life at Chelsea. It's unlikely he'll ever admit it but Cole may look back at things in 15 years and realise he made a mistake.'

'Gallas is so versatile and appears to be so much happier at Arsenal. Chelsea now have the two best left-backs in England and Ashley knows it doesn't matter if he struggles for form.'

'They are the only club who can spend so much money and not have to worry about whether or not moves work out.'

It just goes to show that you don't need to be the best in the world to be loved, you just need to show a bit of class, loyalty and love, and I'm sure Perry has only endeared himself even more to the Ashburton faithful.
