EXETER CITY 5 SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 1, This result could be the last under Paul Tisdales tutelage, Sheffield united are determined to make Tisdale their next manager, and will pay Exeter a large compensation package to get their man. Exeter play attacking free flowing football, with organisation, and team spirit which Tisdale always encourages, as a small club Exeter are punching well above their pay structure would indicate. Expect Tisdale to remain at Exeter past the Boxing day match, the only problem for United is Tisdale is very commited to Exeter, he has had numerous offers from bigger clubs with higher pay, most notably swansea and has turned them down due to his obligations to Exeter, so it is not a done deal by any means.(7)(1)

For those speaking for Davide Santon and Eden Hazard:

Santon's agent, Renzo Contratto said, "Davide wants to stay at Inter, but he just wants to have more trust. He's coming from a period that wasn't good but he has now recovered his best physical form. We hope that he can enjoy more confidence from the coaching staff."

Hazard on the other hand, hinted that he'd like to move to Arsenal (not Real Mardrid or Manchester City, you may notice), saying, "If I do leave at the end of the season, I don't want to go somewhere where I will be on the bench.

"I am young, not 20 until next month, and it will be difficult to break through in a team like Real, where Ronaldo and Kaka are my competitors.

"But there are teams like Arsenal, where youngsters can grow more easily into the first team and make their mark.

"I will not leave for another French club, because, with 100 matches under my belt for Lille. I don't think I have to prove my qualities for a team in the same league."(24)(4)

Plymouth Argyle
The so called 'investors' don't exist at the moment, there are pepole circulating like vultures to get the club on the cheap if the worst happens. The club is split into sub companies so not easily marketed as a whole for potential investors.
Players and staff not being paid before Christmas as the only revenue is on matchday and there are none.
All players up for grabs,
Wright Phillips - doing a good self marketing job
Noone - cheeky bid from up north, Brighton bound ?
Fletcher - can play at Championship level
Seip - Charlton ?
Dugid - surplus any takers
Moleneaux - contract expires Jan
Johnson - sadly out injured but would have been Huddersfield bound
Rumour in the City Reid himself paid a heating bill and coughed up for a meal.

Crisis what crisis ?(13)(16)
