Cole’s Going & Sol’s Gone. Oh Dear…
If you asked most Arsenal fans which players you would miss leaving our great club Sol Campbell and Ashley Cole wouldn’t be at the top of their list.
After all, the legend Dennis Bergkamp is retiring and the dazzling Bobby has left for Villarreal. They gave everything for the club and will be sorely missed.
On the other hand, Cole has been a first class tw*t over the last year or so, and Sol Campbell. Well let’s just say he’s lost the plot.
So what’s the problem with Sol and Cole leaving?
The problem is they’re the last two English senior players in our squad!
And although I’m not arsed with what country you’re from as long as you give it your all when you wear an Arsenal shirt, you can already see the Media vultures circling Emirates Stadium once Cole leaves for Chelski.
We’ll only have Theo Walcott who’s English and I doubt he’ll be starting many games this season!
When Cole and Sol were injured for us last season idiots like Alan Pardew were throwing their two pennies worth when it was none of his business.
Then you have plonkers like Gordon Taylor (what does he actually do?) and Martin Jol jumping on the bandwagon just because it’s Anti-Arsenal.
People talk about giving English players a chance – Wenger has done! They were just not good enough for Arsenal. You don’t expect us to lower our standards to accommodate players from England do you?
The arguement is old but look at players like Jermaine Pennant, Mathew Upson, David Bentley and Jay Boothroyd – not exactly lighting the world on fire!
I just hope Arsenal can capture Curtis Davies so we don’t hear the whole ‘lack of English players’ crap throughout all next season.
