Is the technological era spoiling young snooker talent?
In snooker, you need quite a bit of concentration. Young players, IMO, have been getting worse and worse for 15 years or so, and I can't remember a dearth of talent as alarming as the one we have now, particularly amongst British and Irish players.
I am right almost all of the time, and I honestly believe this lack of young talent is here to stay. Shorter attention spans are affecting most people's everyday lives, so why wouldn't it affect snooker players? Trump's been the only impressive young talent to emerge since Ding Junhui.
People don't have to agree with me here, people have disagreed with me all my life, before I end up being right and they end up being wrong 95 per cent of the time.
