Ashley Cole is a Ram

Recommended Posts

Who knew Ashley was still playing, but apparently he's been plying his trade with LA Galaxy. And now he wants to return to the UK. And we and Villa (both with Chelsea connections) have expressed an interest: https://talksport.com/football/efl/452724/ashley-cole-chelsea-arsenal-Derby-aston-villa-free-transfer/

With Fozzy and OIsson out injured, you can see the sense if we would prefer to have Max Lowe stay for a full season at Aberdeen.

He’s younger than me I guess, but 37 years old and an attacking full back in our team?

I’m out of breath just thinking about it.

I think he will retire personally, 38 next month, played at the very top for both club and country, does he need to sit on a Championship bench for 5 months? 

I’m sure we all would given half a chance with the money that would be on offer, but he’s had a long career with very good wages.

Most players go to the MLS to retire, the only reason they move on is more money on offer in China. You can use Tim Cahill as evidence that some players do, although to be fair Tim Cahill had a connection to Millwall having previously played there and didn’t quite hit the heights Ashley Cole did.

I mentioned in the suggestion thread that had Rowett signed a 38 year old the forum would be in meltdown, so I don’t expect to see many up for this, although an argument could be made that this is a one off and allows Max Lowe to stay with Aberdeen and complete the season. Won’t stop me pulling a few legs though if I’m feeling a little mischievous at the time.

Not against us signing him, I’m not ageist, if he was up for it and still has the legs why not, can’t say I’ve watching many MLS games, been busy washing my hair. Those that have been monitoring Johnny Russell’s farewell to the game may be somewhat in the know, if they have followed the league closely and not just his games on TV.

Does have a little whiff of Terry about this, easy connection to make with the Chelsea thing. See what happens I guess. Wouldn’t rule it out but I would be surprised.

When I read this rumour, I nearly swerved off the road. "You're taking the piss, Carl!" I yelled redundantly at the phone. I am trembling with anger.

If we couldn’t afford or have a place for John Terry, then I can’t see a place for Cheryl’s ex husband tbh.

If he'd come for less than 10k per week (not unrealistic going by reports) he'd be useful to have as a back up / mentor. 

We've seen the impact older heads have on younger players (Nugent training Marriott up for example) and potentially he'd really help push the inexperienced players.

As expected. Supposedly his wages at galaxy weren’t that high. Think he’d still do a job, what we need is defensive knowhow for the odd tough game, we’ve got the energy elsewhere. Christ knows malone is attacking enough, the mans basically a striker!
