    The clue is in the comments by a relative of Cec Smyth at the bottom of the article.... Blegravia Hotel, Torquay

    Which, of course, is not something we ever read on Exeweb.

    What stay at City and forgo the money ? Don't be daft it's his livlihood.

    Mackie has handed in a Transfer request at QPR, doubt he'll get another Prem club, but think he'll be good for another Championship team.

    I know, that's why I said you can't blame him for moving on but just for flip side of what I mean take Matt Le Tis. Could have, and probably should have, left Southampton to further his career but stayed where he was happy and loved by all connected to Southampton. Had he moved, would have suffered similar slings and arrows that Ryan has?

    The obvious difference being that Le Tissier learnt enough at Southampton to make him comfortable for life. If Southampton were League 1 he would have been off like a shot.

    But how much was his England career curtailed by not going to United or Arsenal, etc?

    Steve Bull is similar.
