Ashley Cole: A Hateful of Hollow?

Ok, so he may not be the subject of any ‘How to be the perfect husband’ manuals, but then there’s probably [...]

Ashley Cole On England & Unfinished Business

I can’t say I’ve ever thought about it before but Ashley Cole doesn’t really get involved in giving lengthy interviews does he? Obviously, given the way he’s always been portrayed, I don’t blame him.
