From all the gooners, Thank you "KING KOLO TOURE"

What can i say…Its a sad day for many gooners around the world. He was a big favorite with the fans and the longest serving player currently at the club, and the last of the 49ers.

But no more… King Kolo Toure has signed for the blues and we wish him well.

I was a massive Kolo fan and i loved the way he played the game, Always gave 100% for us and never let us down. A few memories I have of Kolo, Scoring the goal in the champions league semi final at Highbury, The battle he had with Martins vs Inter Milan, He long range thunderbolts and the long range runs from the back with pace n power.

Kolo, From all of us gooners “Thank you” and “Good Luck” You will forever be a legend at Arsenal FC..You will be missed.

    Never let us down? Hmmm – Anfield, 2-2, Champions Leauge QF…

    Rash challenge in front of the Kop.

    The guy let us down plenty – otherwise Wenger wouldn’t sell him.

    Kolo is a legend. Never forget him coming on as a sub against Man City and sending Schmeiohel flying with an “accidental” collision. Hes been a crowd favourite ever since. He was looking a bit shaky of late so its a good deal all round.

    Goodbye to a true Gooner. Never let us down with his attitude, if others had cared so much we wouldn’t be four years without a trophy.

    The king is gone but never forgotten. Thanks KOLO YOUR A LEGEND.
    Liam Brady said “He’s a good finisher, Chuks. He is a big lad, very laid back but he has loads of skill and knows where the goal is.” Who is this kid and wheres he from ?

    goodbye kolo, after afcon 08 he came back a different player, i think he’s past his best, good business for us to get £15m for him, still i’d rather if he stayed bcos of his experience + wenger won’t replace him

    Kolo was the best, even if he was past it. Worth it for the £15m but would like to see him come back in a coaching position so he can share his wealth of experience with the wengers starlets. He was my favourite player and really sad to see him go =( wish him luck, hope man shity fail though and ade-give-me-more seriously injures himself trying to score but flops and kicks other the bar the bloody money grabbing b*stard

    And what now??? We need defensive midlefielder we need sub center half and we need a striker, but guess what we’ll sell 2 more players and buy none. ALL HAIL STINGIES FROM EMIRATES! We’ll happy not to finish last. This is worst transfer season I have ever seen, even worse than last one. I wish luck to us coz we’ll be needing it….. A LOT

    You notice it’s not from Sinbad because it’s positive. Is it possible he got a punch in the head?

    King Kolo for 2 seasons the best center back in the world. Its sad nobody acknowledged that fact. He was a rock and I’m sad to see him go. It is good business though.

    nutsac that penalty he gave away vs liverpool was a dive anyway.

    have some respect for a player who deserves to go down as a legend. he was my favourite player for a long time and at his peak a couple of years ago was one of the best in the world- the african cannavaro.

    it’s a shame he won’t be spending the rest of his career dominating with arsenal but we must wish him all the best. thanks for so many great memories. he would run through a brick wall for the cause and i hope he leaves knowing just how loved he was. even those who think he isn’t playing as well as he was- he’s still considered a legend and we are all very thankful. he always said arsenal are the club in his heart and i hope that never changes with this transfer. so long kolo! we’ll all be hoping you enjoy the rest of your career and you’ll get a huge reception at the emirates!

    The first decent article on this blog that I’ve read in ages and it is no surprise that it isn’t by that nutjob sinbad. Anyway, back to the point of this article. Goodbye Kolo, you gave us the unbeaten season and one of the longest streaks ever in european football without conceding a goal. You have earned the bumper salary that you will get from now on with the Citeh.
