It all went down hill after drinking and smoking were banned from the floor of the Crucible ... those were the days.

Well spotted Rufus - the deliberate mistake I mean.   ;)

I suppose your enjoyment of any television sport is relative to how much you actually like the game.


I really do get the mental strength needed for this particular tournament and I think Selby was absolutely drained at the end.

I think he knew he wasn't fit for much more as Ding was coming back strong and only for Selby's flying start, Ding would have won.

Ding deserved to win because he played the better snooker throughout the whole tournament.


Selby dragged the game right down to a slow level Ding had not been used to and it worked.


This year a lot of players fell way behind in the first couple of sessions and there was no way back despite some valiant efforts.

He seems to have relaxed a bit afterwards.

Stick to the snooker son.

What do you make of the lad Mark Allen? Watched him with Davis earlier and he's hard to warm to.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

He's opinionated to say the least. Always having a go at Barry Hearn.

Shaun Murphys shot now that was something else.

Was that in the 'taxi'?
Was cheering him on vs Higgins earlier. He shat the togs in the last few frames although Higgins was class.

Good player when he's in the zone.

Yep, caught most of it. Did Davis start on the offensive - as in you're not really a top level player? The comment about the oul lad on the side of the road not having 'long left' was a bit dickish

Ronnie, on the other hand, is trying hard to show that snooker isn't all that important in his life. I think that's his only way of coping.
