The fact he says ‘overtaken’ Ronnie to me makes it clear he’s talking about speed.
Also you could argue Thep’s more exciting because he misses more.
Spot on Iranu.
That is why I find Selby very exciting to watch at the moment because I want him to do well but when I am watching I am nervous about every shot.That is what makes it great viewing for me.
How can the fact that there's a risk your favorite player might miss ever be classified as exciting to watch ?!?
You are just like Wildey.
IF you have said that you enjoy Selbo laying a tough snooker, I would have understood/accepted that, even though I enjoy attacking play. But what you said is nonsense.
A player is exciting to watch only in these situations:OPTION A
: when he plays ultra aggressive all out attack snooker, like a young Alex Higgins, Jimmy White, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Judd Trump.OPTION B
: when he plays the game to the highest level, with huge scoring power, making incredible pots and tons after tons, like ROS, Hendry, Trump. OPTION C
(my least favorite): when a player plays a great all round game, like a prime Davis, J.Higgins, Robbo, Selbo, and even ROS.
When 2 players play at a below par standard, the fact that you don't know which one would win does not mean the game is exciting (like Wildey wrongly believes). It simply means you have 2 players who bucking suck.buck, you and Wildey should come and watch some of the local events I go to from time to time. Some of the competitors can't bucking make a 20 break. The level they're playing at is a complete joke, but hey, the matches are close, I'm sure you two would love it
