Re: Ben Mee Interview in the Independent

Gibson is a very good player and doesn't get a look in.
Barton wanted a new song for him and regularly sang his praises.
His last 2 defensive partners have gone from nobodies to England internationals alongside him.
Bravery on a level I've not seen by many players... ever
