Cole Thinks He Still Matters

Cole Thinks He Still Matters

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.

While he was with us he was described, in all seriousness, by people outside the club as the best left back in the world. No one would make that claim genuinely now. As LD posted the other day Clichy is better and that's the point we should take real satisfaction in.

Whilst i'd love to be big enough to heed your advice Rocky, I believe my feelings for the bedraggled little turd will get the better of me on the day. Are Chav fans still accusing us of being the ones who keep dragging this fued up again by the way??? It appears to me that he and his unfortunate betrothed are the ones who haven't managed to let it lie.

'I don't think I have anything to prove to them' Then he goes on to say he would like to play to shut a few people up, does that sound like someone who has nothing to prove or someone who does care what people think

I say keep having a go at Cashley, keep feeding his ego - at the moment, his brain ratio is something like : 50% ego, 49%******whipped, 1% football talent - i fear that if we stop going at him and his ego deflates, his footballing talent may increase! He'll never be as good as CLichy though!

good article, with good ideas that would probably be more effective and less dangerous than throwing money at the bloke, but ask yourselves this...if he doesnt matter to you anymore why are you still writing about him?? maybe you all still care more than you realise?

HS - I can completely understand people for giving him grief,I'd be tempted myself. I just think we should be weary of giving him good reason to put in a fantastic performance. If the gooner were silnt everytime he touched the ball, that would seriously ***** up his head.

SJ - It's an Arsenal related quotes we try and report everything on our Arsenal webite. Oh an the money that was thrown at him wasn't coins, it was £20 notes with Ashley's head replacing the queens.

I'm with you on this Rocky. Frankly, I dont feel any hatred for Cashley now, coz I dont give a *****. We have a better LB in Clichy. Treat him like any other opposition player, thats it.

Smokie, this tedious little fiend and his dumb geordie racist tart have continually brought the issue to the attention of the masses whilst the rest of us have attempted to forget the distain he brought to out great HISTORIC club. Head back to faceless Chavski and let us respond to his comical drivel in our own way. We have 2 better players, without the pantomime and are merely responding to his childish comments. He'll do a last minute no-show again anyway.
