Hello

Postby SeaJay

Hello all :)

I used to follow snooker back in the Steve Davis era but stopped up until Ronnie winning the world title last year. Since then I have been watching it quite a bit. I find it relaxing (I have anxiety issues).

So strange to see the players I used to know all grown up; John Higgins, Alan 'Angles' McManus, Foulds, etc.

It's interesting getting to know the new players; Bingham, Trump, even Ronnie!

I think the player I like to watch most is Ronnie, but I have a liking also for Judd Trump, Neil Robertson, Kyren Wilson, and Shaun Murphy. I like listening to Murphy talk for some reason. He seems quite articulate. I think my all-time favourite player though, is Jimmy White. I used to be gutted when he would lose to Steve Davis. I've watched a bit of Steve Davis on Youtube, he makes guest appearances at various social clubs/etc, and he's a funny guy!

When I used to play the game back in the day, down the legion, my highest break was only 32 (mostly pinks) but I enjoyed playing the game anyway.

Looking forward to joining in the chat.

Thanks all

We should harangue him on Twitter. Or at least get him to promote SI on Talking Snooker in return <laugh>
