Eurosport? I actually thought the same watching it last night... I also never realized that there was such a depth of feeling against Selby til this tournament

Actually BBC2,  Virgo and was it Hendry,  ?

Fair play to Selby,  very professional in his play.
Would it be fair to say that the commentators weren't exactly impartial ie. gunning for Murphy more;  could be my immagination??
There were certainly some comments on BBC over the last week or so about his slow play and Murphy in full flow is a joy to watch* but I didn't think there was any real bad feeling towards feeling.

*There was a clear up in one of the later sessions when he was under pressure and he cleared the last few reds and colours in such a way that I was just shaking my head. He couldn't have put the cue ball in better positions using his hand.

I quite enjoy him, being able to play safety should be applauded not ridiculed. The evening session on day 1 of the final that ultimately won him the world title was as positive as you would see...
