Axle play

I have been having some sloppiness in the drivetrain, a chatter when I push in the clutch. Its not a big deal because I feel that its normal for a manual car, just seems to have gotten worse over the coarse of 12K miles. I got under the car today checking to see if I had anything obviously wrong and noticed a lot of play on my right axle where it connects to the wheel. When I grab it I can move it in and out about half an inch, the left side is tight and has no movement at all. How much play can be expected from this area and could it be exasperating the chatter that I am feeling?

Take the tire off and make sure the nut is tight on the shaft. Forgot the size 23mm or so. Hard to say if that's your problem.
