Stuart McCall is the bookies’ favourite to take over at Bramall Lane.

The betting yesterday had the Motherwell boss at 1/4, Karl Robinson 6/1 and Gareth Southgate 12/1.

Time will tell who gets the hot-seat.

Meanwhile, The Champions League Final from Wembley on Saturday evening is the weekend sporting highlight with Bayern Munich ¾ to win the Trophy in 90 minutes with Dortmund 19/5 and the draw 31/10 at BetVictor.

Munich have already lifted the Trophy four times in their rich history but have been runners up twice in recent years (2010 v Inter and 2012 v Chelsea).

Defeat against their great rivals would be an unwanted and unprecedented hat-trick. We are refunding losing stakes on selected markets if either side come from behind to win in 90 minutes.

Munich have not beaten Dortmund in three years in the Bundesliga but are unbeaten in four games against their fierce enemies this season winning the German Super Cup and defeating Jurgen Klopp’s side in the quarter final of the German Cup when a sole goal from Arjen Robben was suffice.

Both sides are likely to be at full strength and it promises to be a wonderful game.

Luke Donald is our 7/1 favourite for a hat-trick of PGA Titles at Wentworth this weekend; Donald beat Paul Lawrie by four shots twelve months ago and the Scot is 60/1 to go one better. Colin Montgomerie won the prestigious Title three years on the spin from 1998-2000 and it would be

some achievement for Donald to emulate Monty’s feat.

The tournament has been won by some of the greats of golf including Arnold Palmer (1975), Sir Nick Faldo (1978, 80, 81 and 89) and Seve Ballesteros (1983 and 91). We are betting each way six places and it is a stellar field with all the mainstays of the 2012 European Ryder Cup team teeing it up. Worksop’s Lee Westwood had a winner at Windsor races on Monday night and is 11/1 to land the PGA; he has been knocking on the door in the States of late and certainly deserves to win a big one although that major still eludes.

Wembley will also play host to the Championship play-off final on Monday when Watford meet Palace; the Hornets are 4/6 to lift the Trophy with the Eagles 6/5. Watford are 5/4 to win in 90 minutes with Palace 9/4 and the draw 12/5.

Whether it is the richest game in the world is debatable.

Be lucky!
