To be fair though, who doesn't want to hear more non-stop benality from Rob 'hype merchant' Walker or the dulcet tones of Reanne Evans?
Report gjohn101 October 6, 2021 5:28 PM BST
Tbf i don't think reanne can be a direct replacement for jv as there's too much chance she'll qualify for the crucible and go all the way and win it. Kind of mucks up the schedule!

The World qualifiers will probably be best of 3 the way it's going, but the current regime might give Evans, Hendry, White, Ken, Wattana and On Yee Ng byes to The Crucible. Good for the game innit.

Disgusting that Tony Knowles doesn't get one imo, got more publicity for the game than all those put together. Should have a wc for life.

Game needs some new names. Watching a bit of the European juniors this week, not exactly bowled over by the standard, though the Belgians got one or two nice players on the go whatever they're doing over there.

What ??

Knowles famous for wearing womens knickers whilst Hendry, Doherty and Jimmy living legends.

Just realised you're prob on the wind up.Sad

It's possible i was being a bit flippant with that post alright. It should really have said Tony Drago, not Tony Knowles Wink

It looks like JV has had a reprieve:

Great news Gin, for the traditionalists anyway! Surprised tbh but good the beeb sees some sense on this for a change
Report pandora1963 March 29, 2023 8:26 PM BST
fantastic news, love JV

Hopefully Dennis staying out as well

can't stand Virgo or Taylor on comms...both seem top blokes...remember JV and his wife tried to help Kirk Stevens a lot when he was struggling with addiction issues..

but just too shouty/over excitable  for snooker comms (JV) and Dennis thinks the whole audience are complete numpties so just relentlessly explains every shot...Plain

Well, I can't discern any drop off in terms of quality from JV. I think the public like to hear from the game's tribal elders. I believe he will be retained.

JV and Dennis in top form these championships. Be a disaster to get rid of them.

I used to see Virgo at the races every now and then, he was a very friendly chap. Windsor and Sandown usually and he loves a punt. He owned a horse called Jokist who won a few races, mid 90's I think or thereabouts.

Quite like JV apart from the crowd pleasing efforts.

Taylor however is an intolerable simpleton. Alas he treats all listening like simpletons as well.

Hendry is the best of the lot by a mile.

He's got a Youtube channel which I've stumbled across yesterday which is really fascinating & brilliant watch.

nest commentary pairing i heard throughout the entire tourny was mark allen paired with JV
