One would think that Ashley Cole would be different. Apparently a life long Arsenal fan who has been looked after by the club since a schoolboy. The passion to play for the team you support etc. etc. Fair enough, players all move on at some point, but, generally they don't go to the direct people you are in competition with.
Cole has become a regular in tabloids in the past year and not necessarily for his football. Earlier this year he took the News of the World to court to stop them from publishing a very damning story. Ashley Cole Sues News of the World. He denys being involved but wanted to 'protect' people. If this is the case - Good for him. It had the British public looking forward to Sunday mornings for a good few weeks. Apart from the 'gay' jobes, he's also been well publicised for his relationship and recent marriage to Cheryl Tweedy from the girl group Girls Aloud. A funny pairing considering she was taken to court for being 'racist'. *Sigh*
From a girls point of view, Ashley Cole is LUSH to look at, but as a massive Arsenal fan, he had to go. And to think that we gained William Gallas, a French international and World Cup Runner up at this years championship. We also got 5 million on top of that. So I must say, I think we have got a better deal out of all of this!
The best of luck to William Gallas and the mighty Arsenal. Chelsea... we'll se you ina few weeks!!!
