whingey bingey ashley cole
Woe is me, says new Chelsea signing Ashley Cole. Newly married and never one to keep his big gob shut, Mr. Cole isn’t done winding up old boss @Arsenal, Arsene Wenger.
In his autobiography, “My Defense”, Cole says that Thierry Henry got wined and dined during contract talks, but he didn’t get squat.
Can you hear the whining tone yet?
He says: “Thierry signed a new four-year contract two days after the Champions League final but our our situations were different.
“The club made him feel wanted, “wooing” him, wining and dining him, speaking in public about how much they want him to stay, going on a deliberate charm offensive.
But me? I didn’t have one dinner, one meeting or one phone call from anyone.
No one took time out to discuss the club’s ambition and vision with me.
That’s not sour grapes, it’s just a sad truth.“
Yet another to add to the “used to be cute” list. We don’t know exactly when it happened, but somewhere along the way we’ve lost our love for Mr. Cole. Perhaps he can get it back for us playing with Chelsea.
We doubt it though. Like a nice cup of tea gone cold, you can put it in the microwave and heat it back up, but it just doesn’t taste quite the same. Or something like that.
