Players you miss

Postby Badsnookerplayer

What players do you miss from the top 16 - retired or just faded?

I start with Martin Gould. Always liked watching him play and sad not to see much of him these days.

Jamie Cope.

Tremendous talent, unfortunately eye problems prevented him from going forward. Reached 3 ranking Finals.

Good shout that Andre. I knew he had a tremor problem but was unaware that his eyes were bad too.

He was a great player to watch and without his problems would probably still be top 8

...and no. :)

I hope Ricky Walden, Martin Gould and Marco Fu can get back to fighting for titles as they are some of my absolute favourite players. Walden and Fu obviously have their health issues. Not sure what's up with Gould though. In addition to not playing well, he seems to be skipping a lot more tournaments than you'd expect him to, at least in the last couple of seasons.

I used to like Tony Meo when i first started watching snooker. I don,'t know why

Kirk Stevens was a superb player to watch.

Bill Werbeniuk had a great personality. Unfortunately i dont think we'll be seeing him back in the top 16 anytime soon.

Ernst Blodelf, Robbie O´Sullivan, for a starter.

But don´t you 007 know that the diamonds are forever ? The efforts mate, the efforts.

Lot´s of bad news from the current game. Even when it is played decently enough, lot´s of wrong analyses going on, flying in. And that´s something we all here also have a something to do with. That´s why it can´t be just that a few players or a persons (or even just a one) could be responsible. And the responsibility is something almost anyone or even anyone are struggling to take. Lot´s of wrong analyses, lot´s of bad blood. When it even shouldn´t quite be so. Any given sport (excluding the snooker) Is all about after-analyses. And then changing something in order to follow the current, modern path. But when basically everyone are doing that, the anticipation is still a problem.

When I am all about just purely anticipation.

But all the efforts still are something which are usefull. Without those at least I would feel very much disappointed. Of something that realistically I had nothing that I could had done differently in order to make any different impact.

But just keep on having all those clowns taking a responsibility.

When having decent enough predictions going on, all those muppet-efforts are spot on and are very usefull. At least the efforts are there, if nothing else.

I am personally all about to discuss about any given angle. That´s why there needs to nemesis like Cousa also in there. To discuss about Blofeld or Cousa and you´re going to stay eternally young. Even when they aer clowns, I know. Possesing a diploma doesn´t make you any decent. Difficult anyone of taking a responsibility as they look as they do. Terrible views all the way. I could had been same if accepting a job.... But I didn´t. And I do talk about any angle. Which is something you won´t be found anywhere else, not even in Oxford or in Cambridge. I have always been all about discussions like that. Only like

So, the dream of your lifetime could finally become truth and you could be having a chat with me lol.

Or then we still could be having a discussions which involved everyone and is covering many angles.

The current situation wouldn´t be like this if the people would have realised that there isn´t any flaws regarding how Ronnie O´Sullivan (for example) thinks things through. They should had realised it earlier. But no........ When I am always about just purely anticipation. And there still are the longer term anticipation the likes of the black Portuguese boys of Wolverhampton, D Thiem, A Zverev, the Silenzio, Samuelsson getting better of Bo and Fourcade up and running. WW is tough one to shoot down as it has snowballed to concerns Juventus (C Ronaldo learning from his mates) and FC Liverpool (the black boy also in there) also. I would also love to be proved wrong, but currently it is looking tough.

Shaun Murphy, because if I saw more of him at the table, I'd hear less of his analysis
