The big game of the weekend see's Cashley return home for the first time since his acrimonious move to Chelsea, and everybody in the footballing world knows that Cole will be in for a rough time.
However former team mate of Cole, Manu Adebayor, has called for the impossible and urged Gooners to back Arsenal rather than slate Ashley 'I almost crashed my Bentley' Cole.
'I don't know what happened between Ashley and the club, I just know him as a footballer,' Ade said. 'He is a good player and a good person. I like him because when I first came to the club he helped me a lot'.
'I hope the fans focus on us rather than him. We want them behind us rather than what Ashley is going to do.'
'I don't know what he has done to them. If they just shout at Ashley I don't know what that will achieve. If they cheer for Baptista or me to score or Kolo (Toure) to defend then that will be better.'
On any other occasion I would have to agree with Adebayor, being positive supporters is an important part of the game, however this time I feel the big Togolese striker is fighting a losing battle. Most Gooners still feel hurt by Ashley's inability to be the bigger man and deal with the situation in an adult fashion.
Would any of us held is against him had he put in a transfer request after he was screwed over by the board? I wouldn't. But the devious little sod went behind all our backs to one of the most hated clubs, and then even had the audacity to bring out a book, laughable called 'My Defence' as if to justify himself to the Gooners.
Well I'm sorry Cash, but you did the crime.............
