Credit crisis diary: Slow progress for Ryanair

Ryanair is fighting hard in its battle to buy Aer Lingus, issuing a string of press releases accusing its Irish rival of all sorts of failings and general naughtiness.

Capello wins over players and public

Six million pounds a year, or whatever the true figure is (these sums tend to be exaggerated) may be an absurd amount to pay a football manager; but Fabio Capello is almost looking worth it.
