As a big fan of Ronnie, I'm always up for talking about him, but it gets to a point in clubs, that it becomes annoying. All I've heard this week is 'Ronnie this, Ronnie that' and 'there'll never be another Ronnie' etc etc. The annoyance is that there is no interest from these wood pushers in other players making progress. These fans are of a certain age and mindset, and fail to comprehend the huge strides being made by players such as Ding, Fu and Robbo. Ronnie is very, very special but credit where credit is due, let's not be bigoted, and give some respect to the overseas players. There is a lovely front page article on the beeb about Ding and what he has sacrificed. He doesn't own a Ferrari or £1000 silly shoes, he's a down to earth nice guy who loves his fish and chips. Top man.
