The website for the Independent newspaper has loads of old articles from as far back as the early 90's. There's some interesting ones about Snooker.

Already at the time in 92 they are saying Ronnie would be the next Hendry... put lots of pressure on him from the off.

Reminds me nowadays when some top players say things similar.

I think I read one of those BBC articles on ceefax. I wasn't paying much attention to Snooker at the time so I didn't realise it was such a big deal.
