I'd like to throw in a mention of Peter Ebdon. Very solid, consistent if unspectacular. Very dogged and determined. His screaming outbursts were cool too

Watch it irre


Ronnie's playing Ebdon in this opening round. He hates playing Ebdon.

Ebdon is the man who would take 3 weeks if need be to finish the game... O'Sullivan on the other hand would like to take 3 minutes. Ebdon drives him to despair with his slowness and it puts Ronnie off.

If he loses, I'll be in one stomper of a mood that day.

Cliff Thorburn and Dennis Taylor.

Both still around as commentators

Best commentator bar none, is John Virgo. That man has become a familiar part of my life and one I'll be real sorry to see go... when he does

I LOVE snooker me

Who was the Aussie fella who was like watchin grass grow?
I think he was an Aussie, 70's...

Ebdon is slow, very very slow Sleep I sort of admire his determination though.

Yeah but there's slow and there's stop

I DO like Terry though too... very dry humour that one and not everyone got it

Eeeeeeeeeeebbbbbbbbbbbbdddddddddddoooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnn id dreary! He tried to start off flashily: pony-tailed, trendy (or so he thought), missing a lot because he really wasn't one of the Flash Boys. Now he's as whiney as he's slow and always complaining. He tried to "kill" the Flash Guys's games by making them wwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiitttttttt a LOT. pig

He lives in Dubai nowadays, so he's made his bobs from the game anyway. pig

That's them! I'm glad to hear they're both still in with the game.

Me no like John Virgo - better at talking about the game than playing it; and there's another commentator who was dire at the game and is quite snipey about others' games, can't think of his name either but I think he still commentates. I can't even bear to listen to him. I turn down the sound when he's mewling on and just watch the damned match!

No, not Willy Thorne - he's another player I liked well. I'd forgotten about him until now. I'll think of the other bloke's name...eventually...at about 3a.m. Gah rabbit

No tongue I'll go google, see if I can come up with the one I mean... back soon. bom

ETA: John Spencer. And I was astonished to read that he was a former World Champion. Must've been a bad year for snooker that year... were they all off with flu or summat?

Bit of back-tracking here. I dun't mind admitting when I'm wrong. I don't LIKE it, but I don't mind admitting it:

I just saw from the list of previous players I looked at that John Virgo isn't the player I was thinking of. Yeah, Virgo was okay. I don't remember him as a Great Player, but he was solid enough and more watchable than not.

So, there you have it, psketti. I wuz rong.

yay you. Cheers.

And it's JUST his commentating I'm refering to... there's not another like him. He's a legend in that box.

I like him irrie! He was a good player and I liked his humour too.

He does horse racing commentary nowadays. I think he owns a few racehorses too.

Parrots still in the comment box too.

I heard that each player that gets knocked out will be taking a shot in the commentator box now... you know if that's true irre?

Be cool if it is.

Anyone just see that? Shocked

Can't believe Allen went out like that... he'll be absolutely gutted.
