calls Higgins the GOAT. Also says, 20 years ago he couldnt have said that because they obviously played against each other all the time and Higgins would have gained strength from that but now he can say it because he is 45 and doesnt care anymore lol.

True. <laugh>

But even now I think Higgins cant really be in the conversation for GOAT. Most complete player of all time? Probably. But greatest? Nope.

Ronnie and John are from the same generation and they played in the very same era against the very same opposition and Ronnie has just won more. So Ronnie is definitely ahead of him. And Hendry for sure is above Higgins as well.

For me Higgins is the 3rd greatest but some people might argue its Davis.

Personally the top 3 for me are Hendry, O'Sullivan and Davis.

Higgins is in the next bracket with Selby and Williams.

Higgins couldnt even beat Davis at the crucible when Davis was 52!

to be fair that 2010 match always leaves a bad aftertaste because of what happened after that lol and Higgins 6 month ban. In 2000 Higgins beat Davis at the Crucible. But I can absolutely understand when Snookerfans put Davis above Higgins. He has the numbers on his side. But from what I've seen personaly most Snookerfans or even players Top5 is like this now.

1. Hendry/O'Sullivan
2. Hendry/O'Sullivan
3. Higgins
4. Davis
5. Selby
