Another career being thrown away...

(Allegedly) didn't do Andy Cole's career much harm. It was (allegedly) the reason we got him as easily as we did I thought?

It was another Arsenal youth player from the same era who was convicted of theft (and unsurprisingly one who ended up at Bristol Rovers, like all good reprobates).

Why would you spend £62k on a watch? I love horology and watches, but even if i had the money, nothing would make me part with that amount for a timepiece.

What would you spend the money on instead?

I bought a fake one on holiday yonks ago (club 18-30 holiday 😱).

Following year in Kavos on the strip in one of those penalty shootout booths, some Greek guy offered to buy it off me.  Can’t remember what money he got to, but along came his mate, checked the sweeping Second hand (or lack of it in my case), and told his mate not to be what I can only assume was Greek for “daft *****”! 😂

Probably just as well - those drachma were probably more fake than your Rolex 😁.

Because they can, and then add in the "look at me and what I got". No doubt if (big if) it was the most expensive in the dressing room, another player would have gone out and bought a watch for £75K. Surely we all know someone like that on a lower scale.

Exactly. I quite fancy a set of speakers worth £159k, and another pair worth over £180k. If I could afford them I'd buy them. Wouldn't be anything to do with showing them off though. Just nice to have the very best sometimes.

I'd not heard of that one. The rumours at the time of us signing Cole was he had been caught dipping into the pockets of other Arsenal players when they were in training. He certainly was never done for it.
