Gunners missing a gladiator

Enjoyed putting together the Irish Examiner's 32-page Champions League curtainraiser with colleagues Mike Brough and Paul Wick. Fantastic sporting commitment again from the paper. I was really pleased with the cover - but finding a gladiatorial Englishman from each of our Champions League club's was a tall order, especially after Defoe was laid low. Arsenal was particularly tough, as you might imagine. Most pictures of Theo Walcott are more gladioli than gladiator. Great cover by Paul though ... and a really good read once more by the Examiner.


  1. I think you'll find Jack Wilshere gives as good as he gets...

  2. Good point Mike .. but are we talking about on the football pitch at 3pm or on Kensington High Street at 2.45am?
