Good. He needs to get fire in his belly if he wants to win more.

Six months ago I’d probably have made a snide comment about him pandering rofl I’m a fickle lovely lady.

Generally or just when Murphy does it?

I've nothing against it, as such, if it's a genuine expression of emotion (although I'd agree with what Stuart Bingham said in his interview after the semi-final, it is a bit cringey).


But this from Shaun Murphy sounds calculated. He even alludes to it directly, "if it upsets a few of the players, then it upsets a few of the players". It comes across as though he knows it's going to wind his opponents up, so he's decided to do more of it. No relation to what he's genuinely feeling at the time, just another move to attempt to gain some sort of competitive advantage. Totally fake and premeditated.

I've always thought he was a hammer though, so I probably would say that.

I think you mean Kyren, right?

I’m guessing Murphy’s overcorrected from Ronnie etc saying he doesn’t show enough desire to win. I don’t think it’s so much fake as he’s leaning into what must be genuine emotions a bit too much at the moment.

Of course, yes.

Maybe you're right. I find Murphy insufferable in general, so interpret everything he says in a bad light.

Your words are awfully well chosen... Smurphy the epitome of fakeness and premeditation.


It's not that I dislike the guy, it's just that everytime he opens his mouth I have to look away from the screen.

He's talking about it so he's thinking of doing it, and yet he says it won't be contrived.


not sure how that works myself
