Yep, That’s Cole In The New Arsenal Kit!
Well football never ceases to amaze me and last night Ashley Cole played for Arsenal in the reserves as the Gunners beat Charlton Athletic 4-0.
That’s right – the photograph above is not photoshopped!
Arsene Wenger is either turning up the heat on Chelski, playing Cole so that the Russians quickly stump up the right transfer fee which they have yet to offer Arsenal.
Or amazingly, Ashley Cole is staying at Arsenal!
The big question is would Arsene risk Cole in a reserve game if he was going to be involved in a big money transfer?
It looks like Cole and his agent have once again looked like complete muppets and now both are staying at Arsenal for another season.
If Cole does stay, let’s hope he shuts his mouth for more than 5 minutes and does what he’s bloody paid for – to play football.
But don’t be surprised if Cole is a Chelski player by the time you read this!
In other transfer news, Arsenal have been linked with Carlos Tevez which if actually happened would be an amazing move. But it’s just another product of silly season so keep dreaming! Although the notion that Tevez could be unveiled at the Brazil versus Argentina friendly at The Emirates in September is a nice one!
And our favourite Spaniard has apparently come out and said he’s never going to play for Arsenal again. I think Arsenal might have a say in that since we’re the ones who pay his wages but it looks like Jose is still living in a dream world.
Franck Ribery has spoken how difficult a time he’s had recently with all the transfer speculation surrounding him over the summer – bless. Maybe he shouldn’t come out publicly and say he wants to leave then? Jesus…
