Ahhh how i love the return of snooker, the theme tune rings through the air giving me memories of great tournements. This weekend the snooker world championship's coverage starts with some great looking matchs giving the tournement a kick start. Ronnie o'sullivan has to play the player who he beat in a final a few months ago, ding junhai (i think thats his name). Ding junhai got racist comments said to him in the last major tournement and hopefully this world championship will have none of that.
personally i want ding to win!
So what does everyone else think of snooker?
Who will win?
Who's you fav player?
SNOOKER <3 :] I LOVE SNOOKER. Ironically just got back from playing snooker (I go to a club every Saturday (when I'm not busy) with my Dad :]]). I'm watching Matthew Stevens vs. Delaney (new bloke) atm :] Who do I want to win... well my favourite player since I was a kid has been Steve Davis :] but I doubt he'll win, other than him, my vote goes for Nigel Bond (who looks like Droopy) and Matthew Stevens (due to being best friends with Paul Hunter as well as being amazing :]) woopwoop another snooker fan
delaney's 34 now, his world champ debut i dont think he will get far, steven's will handle him with ease. stevens might have a good chance of winning bit i think that there are a few good players this year so you never know, maybe there will be a shock?
i like ding and neil robertson now but in the past ive liked ebdon, dott and davies.
Nah same, but you never know. He hasn't done anything special yet. Aaah Neil Robertson, one of the only snooker players I dislike Australian blonde guy methinks?
And yeah Bondy was down 4-0 to Ebdon, and finished the interval 5-4 up legendddd :]
John Parrott was on fiyah yesterday. Looks like Davis is out in the first round :[ and Graeme Dott's out in first round Though I do prefer Ian Maculloch (sp?) He's another one of me faves :] nice to know we're the only cool snooker fans woopwoop
And yeah unlucky :]
I'm so pissed, did you see Davis vs Parrot? Davis caught up 9-9, and had a shot on the red, which almst went in corner, thn the white managed to go in the middle pocket, so Parrot had an easy clear up P.S dunno what's up with Ding, I was expected a pretty even match.
