The week ahead
Sunday 02 May 2010
It's squeaky bum time in the Championship as Blackpool and Swansea try to clinch the final play-off place while Sheffield Wednesday and Crystal Palace go head to head to decide who goes down. Oh, and Liverpool fans dread the fact that beating Chelsea could help Man United to a 19th title, overtaking their own record.
Now that Spring seems to be grinding to a halt, what better way to spend the Bank Holiday than being stuck inside watching a best-of-35-frames World Snooker Championship final at the Crucible? It's England's 18th attempt to win a one-day trophy as they start their World Twenty20 campaign against West Indies.
England should progress to the last eight of Twenty20 with victory over Ireland. But don't forget that Holland match.
It's the Big One in the Battle for Fourth Place as Manchester City entertain Tottenham. England's women, Twenty20 champions, take on Australia.
BMWs hogging the show? Surely not, but the German company takes over Europe as they sponsor the golf in Turin and the tennis in Munich.
All the big boys come out to play in the ice hockey World Championships in Cologne. Australia and New Zealand knock six bells out of each other in rugby league.
It's the last day of the regular season in the Guinness Premiership and in football's Leagues One and Two, while the Championship play-offs commence for perhaps the most sought-after prize in UK sport: Premier League loot.
