Diary: Borkowski defends Ray Parlour's ex

On the subject of championship winners and Arse-nal, footballer Ray Parlour doesn't have the profile he once did.

He was back in the news last week, but his on-field fate appears to be mirroring his off-field fortunes, as his ex-wife Karen secured spreads in various papers promoting her efforts to win half of the midfielder's not-insubstantial earnings in the courts.

It has emerged that Borkowski PR is handling media enquiries for Karen, but agency founder Mark Borkowski, a fan of rival London side Chelsea, has scotched one article that stated Karen was looking to 'boost her media profile'.

He tells us: 'She isn't looking to boost her profile. (We were hired because she) was under siege (from the press). There's nothing we can really do until the ruling is in place.' Romford Pele, as Raymondo is affectionately known by some Gooners, will be keeping his fingers crossed that the judge brings him some good news at last.
