It appears that a tongue-in-cheek comment made by Ashley Cole has turned a molehill into a mountain for some.
He said that he hopes Manchester City finish above Arsenal and I think it was just some friendly banter really.
I'm not sticking up for him, I can't stand him either but it has to be put into context. If he made the comment with some real malice then I would be bouncing off the walls but the fact is he said it with a smile.
It's a shame really that it has even come to the fact that we hate Ashley Cole. Of course it was his own doing but the reality is he could have become an Arsenal legend. I don't doubt that he would have been captain now as well.
If I had the opportunity to play for Arsenal, the club I love, then I know I would ever leave the club. For anything. Even the cash that undoubtedly turned Cole's head and made him a mercenary.
He is a cocky little fucker but I'd hope that he might have some regrets about the way he left us. It was not the right way to do things.
I wouldn't become upset by his comments, it isn't worth it. Just laugh it off. He wants a reaction. And that is a real shame.
Keep it Goonerish...............
