RICK JACKSON: My long-term bid to become the Fred Dinenage of radio

Have your say

There seemed to be real irony in the air as Andy Gray and Richard Keys discussed Steve McLaren’s options on their new TalkSPORT radio show.

The former England manager has been sacked by German club Wolfsburg and the topic was ‘should he drop a league and take a job in the Championship’?

Well boys, he won the League Cup, made the UEFA Cup final with Middlesbrough and won the Eredivisie in Holland with FC Twente. He can return to the Premier League with his head high.

As the medium wave signal faded, I tried moving my radio to hear the rest of the show but gave up. Happily, the man they replaced, Mike Parry, will be doing 606 this weekend. Good luck Mike!
