Quote of the day

"The fans' state of mind was due to what the club wanted to let them know. As I didn't talk and I won't give any explanation about what happened, they chose their side. That is part of a career, but I bear no grudge against no one. I accept it, it is in the past. The only person who can explain what happened is Joe Kinnear. If he is honest, he will tell it. Otherwise it will not get out of my mouth."

Some intriguing comments made by Dreamboat to French journalists. Expect the "lost in translation" excuse to follow any moment.

As .com have noted, Dreamboat's comments don't necessarily mean that we have JFK to thank for finally doing something useful and helping us to retain a player who has since underlined his considerable value to the team in the games against Villa, Everton and Cardiff. In fact, they imply that JFK was instrumental in the "official" line put out by the club that Dreamboat refused to play against Man City and West Ham as a result of the interest from Arsenal, and that the reality of the situation was actually somewhat different. Clearly it still rankles with him, despite his claim not to bear any grudges.

I think it's fair to say that supporters are well on the way to forgiving Dreamboat for his perceived misdemeanours, but it remains to be seen whether he can patch things up with JFK. Issuing a public challenge is probably not the way to go about doing so, though.
