Yeah - it was a bit of a dig I suppose.
I do think he is overdue a WC or Masters win to stay at the top table, but to be clear I don't think he is a lesser player. Trump has the future in his hands atm, but there is life in ROS yet.
I mean, he is 43 and will stop winning stuff at some point. That's just inevitable. Nobody is debating Judd has a bright future ahead of him, as well.
I know a lot of people on here have written off his Crucible chances now. I haven't, per se. In that I think he can still win it, but it depends if he has the motivation. That's what I think may be lacking, not his ability to win it.
Personally, I think Ronnie could still be winning titles in his early 50s if he wanted to. But again, it depends on his desire.
