nfr snooker
« on: May 03, 2021, 10:44:18 AM »
i started watching during the quarter finals. the standard was brilliant. the two finalists dazzled.

and then when we get to the final so many frames where it's like these guys forgot how to play. the errors have massively crept in. it is stunning what nerves and pressure can do.

However, this final remains simply rivetting snooker and on the second day fo the final I am expecting the highest quality to return. brilliant stuff.

 ithink this was a good thread so will answer it myself.

Brilliant final AND the sportsmanship of the players is amazing. The cheating footballers, who should be ashamed of their own lack of integrity, should take note how to be competitive and yet honest at the same time.

I thank you for starting the thread.

Thoroughly enjoyed the final. Murphy played some amazing snooker when Selby got to 17 frames. Would have loved to see him peg back Selby. The tension would have been unbearable. Amazed that Murphy went for that pot along the cushion.

He had to go for the pot. There was no guaranteed safe shot and had he not tried the pot and still lost the frame he would have kicked himself for ever for not having a go.

No offence intended.

the wife thread is a statement of fact. she simply has not watched the vast majority of the season because she said it was apointless waste of time as the end was inevitable with no forward line. Then after january transfer fiasco she barely asked about the results. when the club is run properly again, as  it is clearly not being done at the moment,she will watch again.

The snooker was a welcome distraction and the players are a credit to sportsmanship.

Watched a lot of the snooker it was riveting, agree footballers should be made to learn from the sportsmanship example.
