Cole Regrets Arsenal Exit

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 a…I wont, I`m better than him.

At the end of the day with most players it comes down to money, Loyalty doesn't come into it.

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, 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?

Anyone hear a phone ring?

Gunners, that's the way i feel about Gallas too.
02/03/2007 14:24:00
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.

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.

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
