If you ever write an article on 606 criticising Taylor they take it down. They won't hear the truth.
"As a player you think in terms of mini sessions, you try to win each one 3-1"
"I took a fiver off Willie Thorne on the golf course this morning"
"That's like one of your golf shots Willie"
"He looks like he has just walked off the set of Neighbours"
"He looks like he could be in a boy band"
The camera pans to be bald guy in the audience, "Is that a friend of yours Willie?"(chuckle).
Then there are the stories he repeats time and time again, ie the pensioners club when John Spencer's position was so good that one of the audience said "Nice break Mr Spencer, but I could have potted all those balls".
"We have an Englishman, a Welshman, a Scot, and 2 Irishman in the commentary box. I think there is a joke there somewhere".
"As long as your opponent still needs 2 frames you feel as if you still have a chance"
"RONNIE IS PLAYING THIS SHOT LEFT HANDED"
"Snooker is a lot like golf"
