Ashley Cole – What was he doing?

What was he doing?

It must be an odd household, the Coles. There’s Mrs C, her smiley countenance widely revered, a woman anointed by the popular press as a national treasure. Never mind the fact she was once prosecuted for a vicious attack on a lavatory attendant; her radiance, her beauty, her kindness seemingly exude from every pore. She’s a love.

And then there’s her husband, if not the most reviled man in Britain then running Sir Fred Goodwin a pretty close second. A man who, when he’s not whining about the insulting paucity of a £55,000 a week wage offer, is facing allegations that he showered some sexual conquest in vomit. Perhaps Ashley thinks that by associating with Cheryl some of her good PR might rub off on him, that somehow things will average out and they will come to be seen as a perfectly nice couple. Rather than as they are: the saint and the prat.

If so, his latest indiscretion will hardly have helped his cause. Stroppy, drunk and disorderly, shouting his mouth off on the pavement outside a swanky bar in the early hours, is not a condition most football fans wish to see their leading players in at anytime. But right in the midst of a three-pronged assault on the honours board it is nothing less than a dereliction of duty.

The fact is, however much the runes seem to suggest that Manchester United will hoover up all available silverware, Chelsea are very much in it. Sure, they are behind in the Premier League, but in the FA Cup and Champions League they are as well positioned as Alex Ferguson’s side. Perhaps in Europe they are even better off. Indeed, it is perfectly possible to see the club matching, if not bettering their trio of second places last season. Maybe that was Roman Abramovich’s masterplan all along. This is what happens when you sack a manager halfway through the season, he will doubtless be telling his acolytes, you find yourself right in amongst the trophies at the conclusion of hostilities.

Indeed, such has been Chelsea’s new-found fervour now that Guus Hiddink has taken control, such has been the way the players have been talking up their chances, such has been the ease about the place, the way in which tactics and systems suddenly seem to make sense, that Cole’s aberration is all the more reprehensible. OK, drowning your sorrows at the end of a disappointing term is one thing, but getting bladdered midweek just as things are hotting up is reminiscent of what used to go on at George Graham’s Arsenal or Big Ron’s United, places where Tuesday piss-ups were routine and training largely the opportunity to run off a hangover.

That sort of thing was supposed to be consigned to the past, the days before bleep tests and endless ProZone evaluation. Even Harry Redknapp, a man who hardly behaves like a Presbyterian, recently insisted that these days there is no place for any booze whatsoever in the footballer’s lifestyle. And yet here was Cole, a man who surely must know better, three sheets to the wind and larging it. It must make every Chelsea fan, the very people whose enormous financial commitment keeps the player in Flaming Ferraris, or whatever it is he drinks these days, despair.

Maybe Cheryl could have a word. Either that or she could turn out next week against Juventus. You get the feeling she would be much better received.

Idiot Cashley Cole drunken rant at Police

The vastly over-rated, supreme moron and petulant asshole that is Cashley Cole came forth with a drunken rant at Police in the wee hours yesterday at one of London’s most exclusive, and expensive, restaurant.
What the f*ck was this arrogant nitwit doing, getting sloshed in the early hours when the team – albeit a rubbish one – that lavishes him with insane wealth are – albeit feebly – trying to compete for three trophies?!

Why was this moron shouting at the cops and, more importantly, why didn’t he spend the night in stir for abusing cops, instead of getting off scott free with a minor fine? If the average man on the street – i.e. not a multi millionaire footy star! – was abusing cops like that, the story would be very different!

Premier League – Cole apologises to police for drunken rant
Eurosport – Fri, 06 Mar 2009

Chelsea and England defender Ashley Cole has apologised to the police for a foul-mouthed tirade that led to him being arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct.

However, Cole admits he did not heed their warnings to calm down and regrets not taking their advice. He also made it clear that he had not consumed a vast amount of alcohol.

Cole declared: “I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to the police officers on duty last night for my language.

“I felt I was being harassed by paparazzi and while complaining to the police about this at the scene they did warn me to calm down, a warning that I regrettably did not heed.

“I fully appreciate that whatever frustrations I may have had with others that it was completely inappropriate to vent those in conversations with the police.

“However, I do want to make clear that I swore in frustration at the paparazzi’s behaviour. I would never disrespect police officers in anyway.

“I take very seriously my responsibilities as a professional footballer, this includes keeping my body in the best condition.

“Although I had consumed some alcohol earlier in the evening on a night out with friends it had not been excessive.

“But I accept that the language I used on this occasion was wrong. I regret my actions and how it reflects on myself and Chelsea Football Club.”

The 28-year-old was arrested in Brompton Road, South Kensington, at about 2.15am on Thursday morning after emerging from the Collection nightclub.

Police sources said the officers were already on patrol in the street and were not called to any disorder.

One source denied reports they were following up a complaint from a photographer over an alleged bust-up with Cole.

Cole was taken to a central London police station and issued with an £80 fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly before being released shortly after 5.30am.

Cole is likely to be fined by Chelsea.

The Collection nightclub is a popular haunt on the west London celebrity scene.

Before his arrest last night, Cole had joined Chelsea’s first-team squad and more than 300 charity workers, celebrities and supporters for the second annual Chelsea FC and Armani charity fundraiser.

Cole, who racked up a £1,000 bill at the restaurant with team-mates Terry and Michael Mancienne, was “rude” to police after getting frustrated by waiting paparazzi, Mr Maraj revealed.

The manager said the trio had “behaved well” before someone apparently took a picture of Cole inside the restaurant.

The three players enjoyed a range of drinks, some of which may have been bought for them by other guests, he added.

“People were coming up to them during dinner, men and women. They seemed happy and quite polite – all the players came for a quiet night.”

Revealing how Princes William and Harry were previously regular guests at the bar, Mr Maraj added: “I believe there was a photographer inside who took a picture of Cole.

“He (Cole) was more frustrated than being drunk, because of paparazzi – it must have been something.

“My staff told me he stopped to speak to police as he left. He was apparently complaining about paparazzi. My staff said he was being rude to the police.”

He added that the Chelsea players regularly visited his venue and always behaved well.

Cole ate a Japanese steak costing £50, he added.
