Cole Off In The Summer
Very worrying to read that Carlton turned down the opportunity to move in January. It is hard to believe that the club would have been stupid enough to sell him, but that might explain why a clutch of strikers suddenly arrived at the Boleyn like a pulse of London buses. Cole seems pretty clear that he remains a West Ham player through choice, which certainly suggests that, had he wanted to go, the club would have taken the money.
Now, the big question is, who was in charge at the time? Sullivan & Gold have something to say about absolutely everything so it would be good to hear from them on this topic. Let's put Sullivan in front of Piers Morgan and watch him shed a tear as he talks about holding Cole in his arms whilst 'Arry, the Angel of Death, holds out his hands like Jesus on the mount.
I would like to know:
1) Is there any truth in this?
2) Who made the approach?
3) Who was in charge at the time?
4) Was Cole given the option to go?
5) How much was offered?
6) Were guarantees given to Cole about being allowed to leave in the summer?
7) Is this why we signed three strikers in January?
Come on S&G, put our minds at rest or reveal the sordid truth. You know we want you to!
