The last week or so has been slightly on the busy side. Last Saturday's interview with Rio Ferdinand went down well. I spent most of Thursday thinking he was going to pull out. When it was announced on Friday morning that the captaincy had been taken away from John Terry I was convinced it was going to be called off but, true to his word, Mr Ferdinand turned up and was on top form.
There was some nice light-hearted stuff in there but I thought he spoke with real insight and thoughtfulness about his brother, why he didn't want to be England captain and racism in football generally.
