WINNERS

Thomas Muster

Who has reached the heights of the world's No1 tennis player without ever winning a match on the lawns of Wimbledon.

Manchester United's financial director

Who had a quite splendid week, with a massive kit sponsorship, the prospect of a place in the European Cup even if they do not win the championship and the possibility of yet more television revenue now that the Office of Fair Trading want to prevent them from having to hand over a share of it to their smaller brethren.

Kevin Keegan

Whose judgement, which was widely questioned when he splashed out pounds 7.5m on Faustino Asprilla, looked impeccable shortly after the Colombian's appearance on the pitch.

Daren O'Leary

Who whizzed in for a well-timed, selector-nudging five tries for Harlequins against Newcastle on Saturday

LOSERS

Steve Coppell

Who saw his role as technical director at Crystal Palace football club reduced to little more than youth-team overseer with the arrival of Dave Bassett as manager.

Michele Perie The prop who was hailed as the future of French rugby union scrummaging after his first cap against England and then dumped following his second, against Scotland.

Norman Williamson Who returned to race riding in Britain last week after a four-month lay-off with a broken femur, and promptly dislocated his right shoulder.
