Convict XI, Football

Convict XI – Left Back

Starter – Ashley Cole


Mr Cole makes it into this great team due to his crimes against the written word.

For those that need a refresher, Ashley Cole was unhappy about his remuneration package at his former club Arsenal and was involved in negotiations that would eventually take him to his current club, Chelsea FC. When Arsenal finally did offer Cole a new contract of a £55,000 ($88,000) a week instead of £60,000 ($96,000), his (Cole’s) response to his agent (as recounted in his autobiography My Defense) was:

“He [Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein] is taking the p*** John! I almost crashed my car [in disgust]”

And if that wasn’t enough, there was a point in Cole’s career that he felt that this photo with his then-wife, Cheryl, would be a great idea. Nuff said.
