Fuck doing it by seasons, only two of us even like it it seems. 

 

Anyway, can't stand the guy but I would bank on Mark Allen winning the Worlds this year.

Allen won't be winning the WC ever, I don't think. His record there is atrocious and there are too many many good players. 

Big winners this season Dim? Ronnie won't dominate and I can't see Judd now he has won his world title. 

 

Robertson seems in form and obviously Higgins is biting at his last few years.

Just the usual really, I think. Trump, Ronnie (though I don't see him winning the Worlds), Robertson and Selby will probably be the main ones. Guys like Allen, Higgins, Bingham, Wilson, etc doing reasonably well. Murphy has reached the final of the Shanghai Masters, he had a terrible season but should probably improve.

Former world champion Neil Robertson had to forfeit his World Open qualifier on Friday - because he drove to the wrong Barnsley.

The Australian, who lives in Cambridge, accidentally set his sat-nav for the village of Barnsley in Gloucestershire.

However, the qualifiers were being held at the Barnsley Metrodome in the Yorkshire town - 170 miles away.

By the time he realised his error, it was too late and Robertson called to withdraw, sending Ian Burns through.

"Hopefully I'll be able to either play or complete a match this season," said Robertson on social media.

Robertson, 37, also had to withdraw from the Riga Masters in Latvia in July after a cancelled flight left him and several other players stranded at Luton airport.

When asked on Twitter how he had forgotten the location of an event he has played in before, Robertson replied: "A friend always drives me to qualifiers but he selfishly entered a Challenge Tour event this weekend."

Englishman Burns, 34, will now play in the final stages of the tournament in Yushan, China later in October.

According to the most recent UK census in 2011, Barnsley in Gloucestershire has a population of 209, compared with 91,297 in the more well known Barnsley in South Yorkshire.

Ronnie fucking hates Crawley doesn't he ?

He might have mentioned it once or twice 

 

He didn’t look right yesterday, and I’m not surprised he’s lost tonight.

Can’t be doing with these best of seven matches. Load of bollocks. 

Yeah they do my head in as well. Best of 11 minimum. Its because it isn't a ranking event. 

 

My main man Higgins looking good already here.

Doing well for a corpse?

 

Oh, the fat Scottish Higgins. He always plays well, very consistent. Unless he has a bet on....

    • I think they're helped by their style. Players like Silva and Foden can play midfield or as a wide forward. Ours can't.    Agree re Matip. Excellent player but has to go. Can't see us looking at Rice though. 
    • Nah, Newcastle the natural next step. 
    • Ake was bought to cover for two positions (CB and LB). Bernardo Silva and Foden have started at seven and eight different positions respectively this season. I think versatility is a good quality. I wasn’t saying “let’s buy Rice and forget about CB”. Let’s get Rice and a CB. We absolutely need to replace Matip, as he hasn’t contributed since the CL win. 
    • Fabinho is basically a better Declan Rice. He doesn't really make much sense for us. If we're sticking with a 4-3-3, the midfielder we need is essentially a young James Milner or Hendo. Someone with humongous work rate who can play on the right side, track back, make forward runs, win second balls, 50/50's, etc. Jones and Thiago are already the ones who can conserve the ball. Hendo is the alternative to Fabinho. We need a legitimate alternative to Hendo. The obvious player is Ward-Prowse, but he'd cost a fortune.    Or, we move to a double pivot and buy a #10 with goal threat.
    • The point is both arguments are valid. Flexibility can be good. It can be a hindrance. What we have shown this season if you are looking for players who start in your best team to be the ones moving around, it is probably not very good for your team as you gets hurt twice. If it is say someone like milner and chamberlain who wouldn't be in the team anyway, it doesn't have that impact. City suffered from it last season by thinking their holding midfielder could replace kompany (like we thought fabinho could replace lovren) and it would all be of because of an incoming player (like we did with thiago). Making your starting point that lad can play centre back as well as midfield defeats the object. If you need a midfielder, buy him. If he happens to be versatile, that's ok, but it matters little if the player can't do what you bought him to do. I can't think of any time you would buy someone for you first XI and put versatile on a list of requirements.    Declan Rice would cost the sort of fee that he should play on his preferred position every week.
