The first four players are by far the greatest players of all time. From the fifth place on, things can change a lot and it probably will in the future even though Reardons position seems to be safe. In my eyes, someone would need to win 3 World titles to overtake him. And I can only see Robertson or Selby winning one more at max, ending at 2. As for Trump and Ding, they'd do well to finally start winning their first titles, otherwise the pressure will destroy them.
I could not agree more with this mate
I ddefinately also think Ronnie needs one more World Title, especially one being in his 40s, to be considered the greatest of all time. With Higgins same thing regarding overtaking Davis.
I would just switch MJW for Reardon in 5th place, and Alex Higgins would come in 6th because of the way he changed the game into defensive for a lot more attacking, and Reardon would then come in 7th place.
But Holden is right as well. whatever analysis we make, Ronnie, Davis, Higgins and Hendry always appear on the Top 4.
