“I Thought He’d Packed it in Years Ago”: Twitter Reacts As Joe Cole Signs For Coventry City

Coventry City have confirmed they have pulled off an unlikely swoop for former England international Joe Cole.

Cole enjoyed spells at West Ham, Chelsea and Liverpool, however his time at Aston Villa hasn’t exactly been a productive one, with Coventry jumping at the chance to sign the midfielder on loan.

And with such big things expected of Cole from a young age, it’s fair to say this latest transfer in the player’s career has only hammered home what could have been for most fans of the Premier League.

Could he really have emulated Argentina superstar Lionel Messi?

Or was he always destined to be that player you thought had hung up his boots years ago…

Twitter was quick to give their two cents as Cole looks set to move to League One and could be in the squad to face Blackpool as soon as this weekend:


Coventry are currently fifth place in the League One table, three points behind leaders Walsall.

However, Tony Mowbray’s side have a game in hand over all of the teams above them.
