No disrespect to Joe,he,s had a GREAT week,the best he,s ever had,but he,s got 0 chance in this final.
Rockettim147,wrote this earlier this week,on the Selby Williams thread.......
"Would love to see MJW win this, but he has more chance winning the lottery
And i wrote back,"thats a bit harsh,but yeah,i can see where your comin from".
Well,Williams ALMOST did end up winning,but at the end of the day,almost aint good enough.
I,m gonna write this,....
,....Would love to see Perry win this,but he has more chance of bein able to snap a photo of Nessie.
Snooker has always had and always will have to odd incredidble shock result(s),but as much as i,d love there to be a shock in thjis final,there,s no way it,ll happen,i don,t like being wrong,but i,d really like to be wrong this time.
I fuuuuullly admit,it really did cheeeese me off when Wenbo missed that easy match black ball against Ronnie,i felt like throwin my tv through the window,it also cheeesed me off at the run o the ball that Ron got against Robbo,but every player has had matches in which luck,a BIG run o the ball has been on there side.
It,s definatley time that the Hendry bashin stops,that the tryin to devalue certain matches that Hendry won is put to bed now.
We,ve been through this topic many times in the past,but i just wanna mention it one more time.
It,s very easy for Hendry haters to sit in the armchairs and spout out how <easy> he seemingly had it througout the 90,s,yeah,sure there were many matches in which his oppoenents played rubbish,weak against him,but that was mainly bcause he put them under so much pressure,they knew full well just how god damn great he was,to try n label the 90,s as a weak era is just pure bl**dy ignorance,i,m sure,(of course,we,ll never ever know for sure),that many players of the 90,s,even some of the 80,s could compete with the crop of last or the current crop,just cause many did,nt make century after century,or play as many BIG breaks as they do these days,does,nt mean to say that they were rubbish,many played more saftey than rather go for cetain pots.
There were a good few times where Hendry really SHOULD,VE been kicked out in certain matches,but you see,the same can be said about Ronnie,i,ve lost count the number of times he was there for the takin and should of got sent packin,i,ve lost count the amount of times that certain opponents played rubbish,weak against him,in fact the same can be said for a lot of other players.
In every era,there has been countless very high standard matches as well as matches in which thre was nuthin special.
tryin to devalue certain wins is nonsense,eg,one could try and devalue Shaun Murphys World Championship win,one could say,had he of played eg a prime Hendry or an on song Ronnie,Williams,Higgins,whatever,he probably would,nt have won it,there a hundreds of examples in which one could devalue certain achievments,or try n devalue certain wins.
But eg,in this example,Smurph won the 2005 worlds,no-one can change that.
Ronnie eg,was a very lucky laddie,even gettin past this 1st round in this years Masters,he had the run in his match against Robbo,but he then moved up a gear against Fu and is now in the final.
Ronnie and Hendry,as well as the likes of Davis,Higgins,Williams,Selby have gotten through many matches due to a bit o luck here n there,due to they,re opponents missin,bottling pots,due to they,re aura,they all have fully earned the fear factor they had,that takes some doing to achieve that.
So lets have a bit more respect for these guys,of course i don,t expect everyone to like them,everyone of course has there personal favourites,to each of there own as the sayin goes,but hey,come on,all of these i,ve just mentioned,as well as a good few others players certainly deserve respect.
Snooker,just like life in general is full of IF,S N BUT,S,WOULD,VE,S,COULD,VE,S,SHOULD,VE,S.
Any tournament takes some doing to win.
God,i think i,ll pop back to bed for a hour,i,m knackered after writin all of that,i was in the mood for writin that and gettin it out of my system.
But,don,t worry folks,thats all i want to say for the rest of this tourney,i hope you,ve enjoyed that post,might of given some of you a bit o food for thought.
One last note for the mom,.........
COME ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN JOE!!.
If ronnie indeed goes on and wins this,i will congratulate him.
If Perry somehow manages to pull of a miracle and wins,then i,ll also come on here and congratulate him.
Tattie bye for now folks.
Enjoy the final.
