David Seaman has spoken out about the treatment Ashley Cole had at the club which you have to say is somewhat surprising. Of course there will be stories and quotes ahead of tomorrow as the press and media build up to one of the biggest games of the season, but for Seaman to speak out against Arsenal it will raise a few eyebrows to say the least.

He said:
“Ashley Cole got dealt with badly at Arsenal and he was hung out to dry a little bit – and that is all I can really say.

The true ­stories never come out. Ashley has been dealt with wrongly by the club and I am not going to go into anything else on that.

I love Ashley as a player and as a man. He is also the best left-back in the world, not one of them, the best left-back. He used to get changed down but one from me, ­because he was number three. I have seen him grow up into the great player that he is now.

And I feel really proud for what he has achieved. I know some Arsenal fans may not like that but I am sorry but I know what I know, and I like him.”
Fantastic quote from Seaman. It's the last comment about knowing what I know that leaves you wondering exactly what happened there.

All I know is that if you look at it Chelsea and Arsenal fans, in the deal that saw Cole come to Chelsea and William "I will score an own goal if I can't leave" Gallas move to North London, we all know who got the better deal!.

After all Arsenal fans we all witnessed the pantomime at Birmingham with Gallas sitting on the pitch like a prat!.

Ashley Cole, even though he took some time, is now back to his best and IS the best left back in World football.

Whatever happened at Arsenal made it possible. As Chelsea fans thank god it did!
