Cole Regrets Arsenal Exit

Ashley Cole seems to be regretting his decision to Leave Arsenal already in the.

The former Arsenal left-back left after months of lying, cheating and deception. He blamed just about everyone but the person responsible - himself! Like most Gooners, I was glad to see the back of him after all he did but I`ve got to admit, it hurt seeing him in a Chelsea shirt at first.

He was "delighted to have joined Chelsea" and glad he "would be competing for more trophies." What he actually meant was that he was glad he would be getting a tidy little wage.

Anyway, Cole isn`t saying he regrets leaving but he is trying to get the Chelsea fans onside. He told Chelsea TV: 'I feel a part of it at Chelsea now. The fans seem to like me and I love the fans.

'I'm enjoying life, the manager's good and after six or seven months here I've already won a medal.

'That's why I came here.'

Yes Ashley, the fans at The Bridge that can be heard singing "GOOOONNERRRR" when you have the ball, they really seem to like you!

He also had something to say about his move from Arsenal to Chelsea: 'Life moves

on. I loved Highbury, I loved the fans but I've moved on.

'I've seen myself in a red shirt all my life and then I'm in a blue one. But it happens, players move from team to team and it doesn't mean I'm a traitor.

'For me it's been a move for the better.'

Well Cole, we loved you too, that was until you went and did the dirty. You are no Gooner, in truth you never can have been a Gooner. What fan could do what you did to their club? The fact that you moved on doesn`t make you a traitor, the way you did it means you`re a traitor.

Enjoy your Carling Cup medal, and enjoy anything else you might win this season because as of next season you`ll be playing second fiddle to The Arsenal.

Ohhhh Ashley Cole, is aI wont, I`m better than him.

AB_Arsenal
At the end of the day with most players it comes down to money, Loyalty doesn't come into it.
miked_joker
You know I had no problem with Cole moving too Chelsea, it was the book, the book did it for me. He should have left and shut his mouth.
Gunners
Gunners, good point I think this was just the icing on a drawn out sage It was all the b******t that happened along the way that makes me use the word traitor, cash whore etc Looks like he's trying a charm offensive, or was that 'something else' offensive?

yeah ashley cole won a medal cos he played in the game ? NO ashley you had your bum on the bench cos wayne bridge is preffered, and you only got a medal cos thats the rules of the comeptition. but you didn't techincally win anything cos you didn't play in the game muppet !
PUREGOLD
Anyone hear a phone ring?
Zeegoonz
Gunners, that's the way i feel about Gallas too.
k_chelski
Yeah, I never have a problem with players moving to other teams. If Henry had left last summer, I wouldn't have had any issue with it. It's the way he refused to accept responsibility for his own part of the mess while blaming almost everybody else under the sun, and then wrote that book while he was still with the Gunners that bothers me. I think Cole is a decent guy underneath (well, I'd like to think so), but unfortunately allowed his agent to get far too close to his ear the last few years.
Shinobi
To be honest, I think Arsenal got the better side of the deal anyway. Gael Cliche's been superb from what I've seen of him, and in William Gallas you've got a truly world class denfender who can cover anywhere along the back.

On the other hand, Chelsea have really suffered without Gallas' versatility. With Terry and Carvalho having both been injured, they've shot themselves in the foot by not replacing him. Add to this the fact that Wayne Bridge is a decent enough left back anyway, and you can see where I'm going.

It's a credit to Arsene Wenger that Cliche has the potential to be every bit as good as Cole was for you.
Rogue
The boy's a money grabbing ***** and I honestly beleive that he'll regret, if he doesn't already, leaving us. We did get the better deal with Gallas, as Clichy has proved this season that he's equal to Cole in every way
scooch
K_Chelsea.....has Gallas come out & slagged your club off repeatedly? I seem to recall it was the club who had a pop at the player concernign the transfer the other way......something about refusing to play & own goals......
916995
actual i thought this article was going to talk about his arsenal exit and what comes out of it :P
PUREGOLD
Gallas is was injured most of the time anyway, huth was injured too.Actually 916995, gallas said he thanked god he left chelsea, he was the one starting the whole thing.First he didn't show up for pre-season, wich is a total disrespect to his team mates.Then, he lied to everyone saying he wanted to play in another league.Finally when he left, he started saying bad things about chelsea, bad things about Jose.Funny enough, when he went to arsenal, he had to play as left-back.He can't do it for us, but can do it for you.Not really the kind of atitude you'd expect from a guy that his previous awards before chelsea were a 2 division french championship.
k_chelski
Zeegoonz, you wont hear it, it's set to vibrate...
simmy8_2000
k_chelsea, I'll agrree there was some conflicting stories concerning Gallas. I don't however recall a published book denouncing the club
916995
K_chelski, wasn't Gallas stripped of his shirt number with the arrival of Michael Ballack, and not even told about it? That's not really a sign of a club respecting their player, and I can see why Gallas would react angrily to such a gesture. Wasn't he also on far less money than the majority of his team-mates, despite being equally as important to the squad?
Bubba_Ho-Tep
No, you're wrong Bubba, Ballack was given the number 19.However, after the utmost sign of direspect by gallas, not showing up in pre-season, he was punished by being stripped of his number 13.Man, Jt gets less money than Ballack, you don't see him b1tchin about our club.
k_chelski
916995, the first thing Gallas did after leaving our club is talking sh!it about it.We loved him, now i have no feelings whatsoever for Gallas.He was nothing before he came to chelsea.
k_chelski
Shock horror - Arsenal berate Cole, if it's any compensation I prefer Bridge any day!
merlin
Even if we still had cole id still rather see the cliche play ahead of him. hes had an outstanding season compared with cole's performances, albeit at a new club. its led to uncovering yet another talent under the age of 24. and dont forget about the prospect of traore! we defo came out on top in this one.
MeetTheGunners
I thought this article was about his mum talking about giving birth to him!
iceman10
'Mrs Cole regrets ********* exit' "they should have pushed the fecker back up me hole" "His 1st words were 'cash' and 'gimme'"
iceman10
*a-r-s-e-h-o-l-e
iceman10
I hate Ashely Cole so much, I tried to stick by him for ages but his final comments hinting that he believes that he can win more at chelsea dun it for me, he is a slimy traitor that will get his commepance one day. Idiot.
gunner-minesh
I hate William Gallas so much, I tried to stick by him for ages but his final comments hinting that he believes that arsenal is better than chelsea dun it for me, he is a slimy traitor that will get his commepance one day. Idiot.lol
k_chelski
K_chelski when Gallas writes a book called ''My defence'' where he tries too get people who probably earn less than 55k a year too understand the pain and insult he felt when he was offered 55k a week ''I almost swerved the car of the road''. Compare the two. That is actually why I dislike Cole mainly because of the book also him attacking Fabregas and other young players. If he went too Chelsea I wouldn't care, if he went too Chelsea and said a few words, I wouldn't care that much. It's the book it showed him out too be a Dk head.
Gunners
Picture this.Ashley cole being a *****ty player from french division 2.He spends 5 years in the club, being worshiped like a feckin living god.Complains all the time of not wanting to play left back.Says he wants to try another league.Doesn't show in the pre-season training.Signs with one of our main rivals.SAy ***** about our club the second he left the club.First game for arsenal, he plays left back.The club reveals he threaned them all the time, and that he threatened to score an own goal.Should i not be mad?
k_chelski
I would be mad to if I was fed that propaganda about a player who left my club. The problem is all the things Chelsea said about Gallas he disputed so its a your word against mine situation where as Cole was thick enough to write a book about it. Of Course Chlesea would say stuff about Gallas, the fans were on their backs about the sale and they had to justify it but with the track record of CFC lies you have to be careful what you believe.
iceman10
The reason he didnt show up for pre season was because he was promised a move, why didnt Chelsea honour that promise? Arsenal hounored the same promise to Cole. Gallas was playing left back whilst you were loaning out the likes of Wayne Bridge so is it not understandable he was a little p!$$ed about playing their as Mourinho was trying to make that his main position where as at Arsenal he plays there in emergency.
iceman10
he wanted to leave the premiership, instead he joined one of our main rivals.Your excuse doesn't make sense iceman, if he didn't go to pre-season because he was promised, then why the hell would he care if ballack got his shirt?Doesn't make sense, silly billy is a b@stard.
k_chelski
Because when he saw the move he was promised was not Honoured (Suprise, surprise) He wanted to integrate back into the group, to then have your shirt taken away is only going to inflame the situation (which it did). You can call him all the names in the world but he will never be as dispised as Cole. Cole gets booed by fans of every team and is the most despicable England player in living memory! Even your own fans prefer Bridge and in a recent poll on vital Chelsa you voted Gallas the player you miss most!
iceman10
Lol, he was a defender.Shocker eh?Again, i'm not saying he's a bad footballer, just a crappy person.Lol, iceman, all those fairy tales that he told you guys, they don't sound really true, and you said not to trust our club.l
k_chelski
I say dont trust your club based on Fact. Lies about frisk, lies about meeting Cole, fact. No lies at my club mate. Anything Gallas says is hearsay and what your club says about him the same, The lies your club told are fact....fact, fact, fact!
iceman10
But Chelsea fans will believe anything! Imagine your wife lied to you would you keep believing her or kick her to the kerb? Chelsea are the lying wife and chelsea fans the stupid husband who keeps believing her!
iceman10
K-chelsea, what do you mean picture this? Arsenal gave Ashley his career, he was somewhat given a chance there as a young player too come out and critise other young players is quite disgusting on his part. Anyway the reason why I dislike Ashley Cole is down too him being a Chav and being an idiot ''I weren't havin it'' you write that in a freakin book.
Gunners
well mate, you said you wouldn't care that much, if gallas did what he had done.The point is iceman, for the fans, Gallas could've kept his mouth shut.It shows he's just disrespectful to us, as ashley cole was to you.Iceman, gallas was stripped of his shirt even before the team arrived in london.It still doesn't make any sense, silly billy and his fairy tales, oh dear oh dear.
k_chelski
Didn't chelsea start speaking smack about him though, saying how he threatened too score own goals and BS along those lines?
Gunners
It was after.He talked bad about us 3 times.The first, chelsea let it slide, the second, then the third we couldn't take it anymore.
k_chelski
Keep believing what your liar club tell you K_Chelski! It will only end in heartache!
iceman10
Great acheivement 4 Cashley. He left to win trophies and in 6 months he lifted the carling cup. He should have told us that was all he wanted cos maybe we would have fielded a real team!
simon
"if it's any compensation I prefer Bridge any day!" Like you wouldn't believe, Merlin!
simmy8_2000
