I’ve never bought the Daily Mirror before, and I rarely look at the back pages of any newspaper. But today something compelled me to buy it. If I’m honest, I was just after something to flick through with my glass of Rosé.
All I can say is, hats off to the sport sub for the best headline I’ve seen in a long time. FRANK INCENSED. Made me chuckle. Shame it wasn’t nearer the festive season, then it would have really been something.
Not a footy fan myself, I was more interested in that play on words than with the actual story - something about Frank Lampard “poised to quit Chelsea” (the words of Martin Lipton of the Daily Mirror).
