So it,s Nothern Ireland v Wales.
Been a lonnnnnnnnnnnng time since thats happened innit!.
I have to say,i,d like to see Stevens win but i can,t see him doin it,Allen will win i feel.
If Stevens indeed loses,its still a great feat makin it to a final as his age,(35) but no-one wants to lose a final do they.
If Allen wins,it,ll obviously be a great win,what,ll make it even more special though is that he won it last year,winnin a tourney twice in a row does,nt happen much "theeeese dayyyys".
I,ve always said though,if you,re good enough,it,s certainly possible to win back to back tourneys,win a tourney twice,even 3,4 times in a row,or at least win many tourneys in general these days,it,s about being consistent,having the right mindset,the will to win,to have great mental strength,to make the most out of your chances,these are strengths which almost all the players lack these days.
It,s easy to blame it being too difficult to win back to back tourneys or even to win a tourney these days due to the so-called high standards,an excuse that many of the current crop like to spout out.
Trump,eg said a good while ago that he thinks,or it,s time to start dominating,well he aint is he,the main reason is cause he,s not consistent enough,he might play high,to even very high standard snooker for a match,a couple of matches,no doubt about that,just like some other players do but then he,like many others of the crop suddenly go off the boil and start missin pots,run out of position,play loose safetys,squander numerous chances and in general play drivvel!.
The players all get there fair share of chances,but if they,re not capable of takin them,well,yeah,they can always blame it and say it,s cause of the higgggghhhh standards theeeeessse daaaayyyys!.
I,m not bovered who wins this,as there are no Scots in the final
Nah,may the best man win.
