Pantomime villain, Ashley Cole, has repeated his stance from last season that his aim when he plays Arsenal is to 'shut a few people up'.
Cole eventually bottled the return to Arsenal last season after playing lame, but 'Ash the Cash' has vowed to 'front up' at the Grove this season, and hopes to silence his critics.
'Compared to what happened to the England guys, I am sure I will get much worse when I go back to Arsenal,' Cole said in the Daily Mail.
'But I am used to it, and I am looking forward to the game. I want to go there and play them because I did not get to play there earlier this year. I will go there and front up. I am a grown man. They (the Arsenal fans) threw money at me at Stamford Bridge, and that was bad, but I get that every game. I love it.'
'It would be nice to go there and shut some people up. It's going to be tough though. To be honest, I am really not bothered about the reception I will get, even though I know the crowd will get on my back.'
'I don't think I have anything to prove to them. They know how good I was when I was with them and what I did for the club. It is not about that.
Cole even claims he still has feelings for the club that gave him everything.
'Of course Arsenal still means something to me. I don't hate the club or the players. I love the club, but it has finished for me there now. I need to look at myself and Chelsea and do as well as I can and win as many things as I can here.'
Even though Cole's departure was more than 12 months ago, feelings towards the leftback are still raging amongst Gooners, but here's my advice.
The best way to get your own back on this geezer would to be not to aknowledge him at all. His ego already tells him he's in for a rough ride because he was so important and famous, imagine the hurt he would feel if we showed him we didn't actually care.
Instead of chanting anti-Ashley songs, open up those vocal chords for pro-Clichy dittys.
