Chelsea’s Joe Cole Rewrites West Ham’s History

Says the Times: “Chelsea are adamant that they will not pay over the odds for Anelka, with Joe Cole articulating the frustration felt by many at the club at suggestions that they are buying success.”

Chelsea buy success? The club owned by Roman Abramovich, the oligarch who has invested over £300 million in the club since acquiring them from Ken Bates and other shareholders for £60 million and paying off £80 million of debt. Not a chance…

Says Joe Cole: “It riles me when people talk about Chelsea buying the league. I’ve never seen a pound note scoring a goal and I’ve never been at a club with as good an atmosphere.

“I supported the club, was a ballboy at the club, have played for them, came through tough times at the start and made myself an important player. I was very proud to have the captain’s armband for 50 minutes against Aston Villa on Boxing Day. I have a connection with the fans and know what it’s all about. I’m one of them.”

He’s born and bread Chelsea is Cole. Only what was that bit about his playing for West Ham and going to Chelsea in a big money move?

Anyone care to help Joe out..?
