Joe Cole : Nice to have but not needed


So Joe Cole has decided that he does not want to stay at Chelsea anymore after the club decided not to give him the huge salary that he is after. That means Cole is now a free agent and can join any club he wants for free and demand the extra ordinary salary he is after. It is said that Cole wants £120,000-per-week! That is ridiculous if you ask me. He is a good player but not that good.

That had been suggestion that Arsene Wenger would be interested in signing Joe Cole. When I first heard that, I thought “not a bad move”. We could really do with a player of his abilities and he is an English player which we need if this UEFA rule comes into effect. But when I heard the kind of salary Cole wants, I was put off.

Now reports suggest Cole wants to join Manchester United and not Arsenal when early Cole was thought to want to come to Arsenal because we wants to stay in London.

What do you make of all this?
