Beef Jerky of the Week

Someone, within my earshot, drew the comparison between F.A Chief Executive, Brian Barwick and Pinnochio. Interesting I thought, especially as I initially misheard it as Pinochet.
Despite Luis Felipe Scolari being offered the job and turning it down Barwick said:
"Steve did two fantastic interviews. He was my first choice, the FA board's unanimous choice...My first choice was always Steve. That might be difficult for people to get their heads across." Yes very hard.
My favourite thing of the whole selection process was this post off a BBC message board from early March:

Guus Hiddink would be ideal for England. He has four arms.
Arto Zubisjki, Czech Rep.
