The job of chairman of the BBC Trust is up for grabs. On paper it looks like a dream job. Not too taxing; perks of being a civil servant; good pay; great working environment; interesting, high-profile, semi-altruistic organisation. However, unless you've been living on Mars for the last 15 years, you'll know that this is, in fact, the job from hell.

It's a radical idea I know, but how about next time we send the England football team to a tournament we try to win? And by that I mean why don't we treat our national sport like a business, and give ourselves half a chance of realising our undoubted potential?

The end of the January transfer window is now in sight. As we approach the final straight, players and clubs the world over are gearing up for a full throttle, frantic finish - but, ultimately, it is the football agents and advisers who are in the driving seat. They are currently enjoying an ever-increasing amount of influence and power - and in my opinion, that is a development which must be curtailed, for the good of the game.

Tony Blair has been called "a shady figure" and a "very sad man" by former BBC director-general Greg Dyke. In an explosive
Win the World Cup in 2022? Is that it? Really? One refereeing decision, a couple of injuries or a Qatari version of Delhi belly can put paid to that in mins! Okay - there was a little bit more than that to it, but Greg Dyke's solution over simplified the matter at hand for me. English football is struggling because...
