Leicester City


Who were able to give full vent to their feelings about their former manager, Mark McGhee, when they beat his new club, Wolves, 3-2 in midweek.

Seve Ballesteros

Who has already proved a winning Ryder Cup captain, bending the committee to his way of thinking about playing as well as skippering if he feels like it.

Bas Zuiderent

The 18-year-old Dutch schoolboy who blasted the best bowlers England has to offer during a high-quality half-century in the cricket World Cup.


Alec Stewart

Whose ability to get himself out in silly ways plumbed new depths yesterday when he was run out without even running his bat in.

Watford fans

Who are being asked to believe that a management pairing of Graham Taylor and Luther Blissett is a "dream team".

Tim Flowers

Who found that goalkeeping can leave you more open to ridicule than any other sporting profession with Stan Collymore's bibbly-bobbly goal against him on Saturday

Andre Agassi

Who failed to regain the world No 1 spot when he lost to Pete Sampras in the final of a tournament at the end of last week, and then promptly lost in straight sets to Luke Jensen, the world No 462, a couple of days later.
