Davies, Theo, and Ash's wedding.

It seems Bryan Robson is being quite, quite obstinate about letting Curtis Davies go. This is, consequently, pushing his asking price up. I think at the moment we're looking at around £10m which is an awful lot of money for a 21 year old centre-back. I saw him play a few times in the premiership last year and he does actually, just about, look worth the cash. But splashing out that amount would naturally affect our other transfer plans this summer.

What I can't really see happening is Theo being lent out to the Baggies as part of the deal; something which the club and Theo's agent both seem to have said. Arsene already loaned Theo out for experience over the summer - arf - and I think if he wanted to loan him out he would have done it by now. I think he wants to keep him in London to monitor his progress, as he keeps maintaining. I expect Theo to play a few times this season, then really break into the first team in the season after. I just hope he, and all us fans, realise that he's a young lad and needs to be brought on slowly, so none of us should get frustrated if he doesn't start playing consistently for a while.


In this rather amusing story - which could have come straight out of 'Footballer's wives' - Ash hasn't invited Arsene to his wedding. Ah, feel the warm glow of friendship. Whether this actually means anything is anyone's guess.

Also, for the 4,000th time the club have denied Fabregas is going anywhere, and our Big Phil has been given Tony's old shirt. Great stuff.

Adios,

Gb.

Forget Curtis, Arsene said long time ago that he would not buy him. I don't know why he is being link with Arsenal.

I would not read too much into the wedding. It is tomorrow and AFC have a friendly against barnet then so AW is working.

Anyway do you think SAF was invitied to all of his players weddings?

Lastly why would you want to invite your boss to your wedding I didn't...

I thought the wedding story looked a little ridiculous, but The Sun'll do anything to sell copy.

If Davies was to sign. Where would he play? who would he go in, instead of Kolo or Senderos? why spend so much on a backup?

although the Sun did mention that Arsenal, as Ashley's employers, would have final cut of his autobiography and do quite a bit of editing thus paving the way for him to finally go somewhere else....

he may be a good player but he is a greedy, stupid one and i wish him the worst of luck wherever he goes to ply his trade... tosser

the sooner CASHLEY COLE leaves ARSENAL the better. he is a bad influence ina team where the new generation are begenning their BONDING process. We have Flamini and Clichy we dont need that money grabbing back stabbing EGOcentric CUNT at our club. i for one will boo him if stays and plays. the runty little cunt should be thankfull we gave him a chance and WENGER turned him into the best left back in the world.
the ungratefull little BASTARD should FUCK OFF as soon as possible.

it also seems like Cole is more interested in "celebrity" than anything else these days...

hopefully it will effect his game accordingly and he will be a miniscule footnote in Arsenal's history

He is possibly the best example why the big clubs don't want to buy English players - not only are they over-priced but they are equal in the mercenary stakes! He was bought through the ranks, yet the first chance he gets to grab the cash and he's off. No loyalty whatsoever and a total inability to accept blame in the matter. The guy is a wonderful example of why English players are going backwards - they chase the cash and not the chance to improve their game.

Ashley Cole is a cunt. Why? 2004 Arsenal went unbeaten and won the title as we know. Less than a year later in early 2005, he meets up with Mourinho because Chelsea are about to win the league. Says he loves Arsenal and one day would like to be captain. What a cunt. Just because Arsenal were having a shit season, he wanted out. If it was now he did it, I wouldn't blame him after Arsenal's shit season domestically last term. And he blames Dein and Arsenal just because he got caught. Point is, he wasted no time in wanting out. Greedy, two faced bastard. Hope Sheryl sits on his cock and snaps it. Giving him pain and a fractured cock..

LOL. Tell us what you really think, gelbs. It certainly looks as if he does care more about celebrity, but what kind of celebrity status? The most hated ex-gooner since Anelka? Anon 11:24, I think you've got it wrong. According to the article, the book is set to be released two weeks into the season. If Ash agrees, Arsenal can edit it, meaning he would be staying. If Ash makes it clear he doesn't want to stay at Arsenal, he'll be sold and Arsenal would have no say in the book's contnt.
