Ashley Cole believes he had the last laugh at the Carling Cup final after receiving a bit of stick from the attending Gooners.
Ash the Cash obviously believes being an unused substitute is a step from from being worshipped by Arsenal fans and playing for a team that is self sufficient and built from scratch by a manager who likes to play football.
'At the Carling Cup final I was getting stick from the Arsenal fans, but hopefully I had the last laugh. It`s stupid that they`re still going on about it.' said Cole
"But there`s nothing I can do and I`m over it now. I spoke to a few of the players and the manager afterwards. There are no hard feelings and it`s down to other people to forget about it and move on."
Cole returns home (or more likely he'll bottle it) for the first time tomorrow as Chelsea's title challenge finally comes to an end, and Cole firmly believes (or he would like us to think) that his move to Chelsea was purely for footballing reasons and nothing to do with the Russian blood money.
"Sometimes you can`t stay somewhere and you have to move on. I`ve done that now and for me it`s for the better.
"My time at Arsenal was up and I`ve started a new challenge, a harder challenge because you`re at the champions and everyone wants to beat you. I`m enjoying it."
However it will be Arsenal fans who have the last laugh by handing Man Utd the title tomorrow when the Chelsea fail to win at the Grove.
