What makes you think I will be betting on it? You tard.



No need for hatred!! I never said you would did I? Take a chill pill


There is no hatred. I just think you are a tard.


I don't really care what some so called 'Muppet' thinks of me. O'Sullivan's frustration comes from knowing he he is not good enough anymore to win a world title. It's not his fault age triumphs over us all.

Not all of us bet you know.

And the one you shouldnt be wasting money on is Selby.


Why does Selby get mentioned in all sorts of silly topics? <doh>

What makes you so certain? In my book Trump is the slight favourite, about 55-45.

Ronnie never really looked good or comfortable this week with the exception of a couple of frames today.

Time for Ronnie to consult Dr Peters again and get back to the practice table!


To me Ronnie has crossed the line of age...never saw that in him until this week! I know he said he hasn't practised much but I don't buy that....maybe it's true and he was distracted from something in his personal life and will go into the World championship as sharp as ever.....but I don't feel it....I'll be as happy as anyone if he turns up at Sheffield and turns it on but...I doubt it

Ronnie needs to take a step back and reassess his schedule, imo. He's at his best when he's fresh and motivated and that can only happen if he plays less.

All this playing in everything, especially marmite like the PTCs and Championship League, is doing him no favours at all. The time has come to go back to playing in only 6 events a year.

He should do that next season maybe. Last year he played so well it was understandable that he competed in so many events to give himself more chances to win titles.

Nothing to do with his schedule I think this year he has had a nice one. You have to look at body language and for me he is screaming tbh. Even when he is winning frames and seemingly comfortable he looks on edge. That's not personal issues that's knowing his time has gone.

I agree. He looks overplayed atm. Would be probably better if he didn't play in China to have 3 weeks off and be really fresh for the WC.

When it comes to next season, he'll probably play less tournaments.

Yes, play less. He's 40 years old, not 20. Snooker is a young man's game. Ronnie cannot be expected to maintain his high levels if he is constantly traveling to all corners of the globe.

On most if not all other players on tour his shedulle would certainly not be muxh, but on Ronnie these days I feel the more he plays the less he performs. I do agree he shouldnt have entered China, we all know he wont do anything there.

He should save his powers for the Big One, but he should be allright, if hes motivated for it thats almost half the way regarding Ronnie.

It's pretty much perfect. However I don't want MJW to go out to Ronnie once again.

No you troll. It it isn't.

Every player is different. Fast fluent players like Ronnie O'Sullivan, Judd Trump or Matthew Stevens as well (in the past) are not really used to be playing long scrappy matches all the time. And Ronnie had a lot of them this season.

And they just don't have the stamina of players like Selby, Ebdon or Higgins. Notice. That's a compliment to these three players.

Ronnie is a different type of player. You can call it weakness. And yes. It probably is. But it didn't hold him back from winning 5 World titles.

He should think about pulling out. I know it's kind of a sausage move but I feel the time would be better spent in England training hard and consulting with Dr Peters.

Would be funny (NOT) if MJW won his first Crucible match against Ronnie. MJW himself says Ronnie potencially cost him 2 or 3 World Titles, and who knows had he beaten him, esoecially in 2006, how far he could have gone.

Of course he has. This season alone he's travelled to Berlin, Chengdu and Barnsley.
