When I was first in talks about this job, I was ...
I mildly disagree with my esteemed colleague Brian Viner, who writes this morning of his low opinion of Alan Shearer’s punditry. I actually think Shearer is ok rather than poor.

I found out about the 6Music reprieve via a text message from my mother who, as far as I know, has never listened to the station, and probably wouldn’t have even known about its existence had it not been earmarked for the chop.

If that sounds disparaging it isn’t meant to; [...]
