If it was a bunch of gamblers, male sports watchers voting I'd say he should be about evens, but in reality with his likely tendancy to mope and generally look a bit saggy round the middle (and on top) I can't see he makes it in the eyes of this shows main viewers.

He's always been the housewives favourite as well. The only time my mum ever watched snooker was when Jimmy was playing.
Report stu November 16, 2009 10:56 AM GMT
Think that's a little bit of myth personally - ok some women will have watched him, and followed snooker, but not the majority.
Report stu November 16, 2009 10:57 AM GMT
Plus, theres also the 'disappointment factor' when your hero turns out to be so obviously middle-aged and fuddy etc. He can still win, but will have to show a bit more spirit and energy than looks like at present.
Report snooker backer November 16, 2009 12:33 PM GMT
Signing in, a tad disappointing at the start and my worry is that he gets bored very easily. I'd say the girl Benjamin is the one to fear.
Report snooker backer November 16, 2009 12:35 PM GMT
Don't think the fat (Biggins) or the hair (Blackburn) are a deciding factor though. He might just be a bit dull is all.

Yes, but Biggins was known for being fat - Jimmy is remembered as the little whippet who took the tables by storm.

Report snooker backer November 16, 2009 2:32 PM GMT
I agree Derek to a point. It's never good to have too high a profile early on but he is actually quite shy and without any alcohol he might just not be enough of a personality, on the other hand he might end up losing four stone and being the nicest bloke there. I just hope those bl00dy decorators get thrown out soon as if they are there for much longer I won't be watching it anyway. Anyway the focus tonight is firmly on that moose Jordan so nobody else will get a look in.

At his last matched price of 6.2 he looks very good value to me , its my belief that his price can only contract.

Todays odds could very easily look very substantial in a weeks time an excellent favourite in my opinion.

Every selection has a price, and although he was a lay at 4.6ish he is now in the 6.6 range which would make him closer to a back - I actually thought he looked happier yesterday too. If he keeps up the positive outlook he will get more attractive as a selection.

So what do we know so far? He's as fat as Ray Mears but not quite so happy in the jungle. More health complaints than George. He's quiet and boring expect when he's drunk when he's a total khunt. And he's a likely quitter.

Jimmy not getting a look in as it turns into the Katie Price show, wish i'd waited before lumping on so early..looks a great price now as he is sure to be in the last 5 if he dont get bored and walk...which is a possibilty...but if he sticks it out i rekon he will eventually have a chance to shine as the others drop out.
Great price now to trade imo will almost surely go back into 6.0/7.0 at some stage, not looking a winner right now but maybe thats the game plan...sit back for the 1st week and let the **es ** before clearing the table to take the long awaited title.
Report armagnac November 19, 2009 12:07 PM GMT
10.5 right now, just for my reference.

I think the sitting back is more to do with general indolence and corpulence rather than any sort of game plan ;-)

Jimmy might be 147 hero to many in his sport, but unfortunately as far as charisma and personality are concerned outside snooker he'd struggle to make a break of 2 or 3. You frequent find trout on the slab at Morrisons with more go in them than Jimbo.

it is possible he could take this.

I was originally against him (at the shortest prices) but as he has seemingly stayed fairly positive, and with some pretty huge odds he certainly became a selection to have onside.

This is daft, I'll tell you now, Jimmy White is a bigger character than this Gino, plus the other 4 put together, and he has been stupidly edited out of it all so far. Now the field is just 6, and he already has enough supporters to keep him in for a couple more rounds, even with no exposure, he is the bet now. If he is there with just 4 left, he will get more TV time, and become a bigger and bigger hit. 12/1 with Betfred, fill your boots. Jimmy is a proper peoples hero.

Not in my house maiaze - she thinks Gino's a poser, and she's warming to Jimmy (slowly it must be said, but getting there).

He isn't doing as badly as he once was in terms of edit time, and the thinning field will only see his coverage increase. This could be a late stormer IMO.
