John Higgins

Recommended Posts

Not sure whether snooker is really a sport rather than a pastime but congratulations to a previously completely out of form John Higgins for reaching his eighth World Final over twenty years after first winning the tournament.

Here's hoping his luck is better than in the last two.

After the News of the World 'sting' all those years ago I went right off Higgins.  He got a 6 month ban, yet his manager was banned for life for the same incident.  How does that work? In my view Higgins was incredibly lucky not to get the same punishment as his manager.

I hope Trump beats him 18-0.

Sorry, not a great snooker fan and don't think that I have ever read the News of the World. I confess that passed me by.

They got him on video video happily accepting a sponsorship deal that included some match fixing conditions.

He's a Scot and, assuming that is all in the past, I want him to win.

Thanks. Scot or not, not a great fan of greedy cheats. That said, I am not much of a fan of set ups by hypocritical tabloid journalists with even lower morals than those they are setting up either.
