I used to think Ashley was such a nice boy when he was making his way at Arsenal – the sort of polite young man you could take to meet your parents. Then, something happened to him. He went over to the Dark Side, for what reason I don’t know exactly. It all started with this embarassing dive against Man Utd. You can almost hear the contemptuous sneer from Roy Keane, as if it’s not even worth berating Cole because the dive was so ridiculously obvious.
