Maybe just maybe might due to these increasingly dodgy asians tournaments but he will never win a big one !
Report Franco8642 May 8, 2007 12:33 AM BST
how do you know he will never win a big one? thats why people lose money in this game because they dont open their minds to the real possibilities.

Can I have an even grand that the black was on the yellow spot ? The ref had to put the yellow next to the black during Higgins break.
Report Selof Defense May 8, 2007 12:34 AM BST
oh dear , what is higgins meant to say , that he is a flash in the pan and wiull never be heard of again'live in the real life guys if u r going to quote those statements !


I am sorry if I won a lot of money but lets move on and accept Selby for what he is , a pool player who has turned his hand to snooker ! ask urselves where is the money nowadays ! snooker in europe/asia or pool in america etc !

Selof you don`t seem to have much idea.Selby is a snooker player who plays a bit of 8-ball pool.
You don`t like his style fair enough but 12 century`s , two great comebacks showing he has plenty of bottle , he has plenty going for him.

Don't recall Hendry saying anything similar when he beat Bond. He might win a big tournament he might not who knows but only an idiot would try and forecast what is going to happen in a snooker tournament as far as 5 years in the future.

Ok, if you're genuine I can't understand why you can't name any other players when you "nearly turned pro".

I have a genuine interest in pool and like talking to people who have been about a bit, but you obviously have your reasons.

I'm sure you don't really care if anyone beleives you or not.
