Gas Guzzler saves Chelsea star’s life
Joe Cole glad he ignored Al Gore when choosing motor
Big Phil Scolari officially started work at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground yesterday, and he almost did so a man down. On the way to training, Joe Cole’s Range Rover became rather too well acquainted with a 40-ton lorry:
“[Cole] dashed to the aid of another driver trapped in his Vauxhall Signum.
“The Chelsea winger’s £50,000 4×4 took the full impact of the Scania lorry – and careered into the Vauxhall.
“Driver John Jury was knocked unconscious – and came to with Cole banging on his window.”
The dent in the plush Chelsea tractor doesn’t look particularly life threatening, but the other driver claims Cole would not have survived if he had been driving a sports car, or one of those hybrid efforts that obnoxious people drive to let people know they are better than everyone else. Absolutely no one who lives in or around London needs a 4×4, yet it seems the winger and his bride-to-be Carly Zucker have done the right thing in completely disregarding their carbon footprint.
Spoiler bonus: it looks like someone has been playing tricks with Joe Cole’s Wikipedia entry…
