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. But the campaign is so far falling short. Yesterday it said it now owned 29.83 per cent of Aer Lingus – not bad, until you hear that, prior to launching its takeover offer, its stake was 29.82 per cent.

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.
