Snooker saved this country.  Al Murray: The Pub Landlord: My Gaff, My Rules, Londons Playhouse Theatre

 

 

Alex Higgins was the best player drunk that I ever saw.  Clive Everton

 

 

The 1972 world final was about as different from what we’d expect at the Crucible as it is possible to imagine.  It took place in a down-at-heel British Legion now demolished on the outskirts of Birmingham.  The only lighting was the upturned trough-type shade over the table.  The tiered seating was on beer crates.  Clive Everton

 

 

There was almost a sense of threat in the air when we were in Alex’s company.  And particularly when he lost.  Clive Everton

 

 

The public decides who its heroes are going to be.  And Alex was one of them.  Clive Everton

 

 

That’s why he [Alex Higgins] was the jewel in the crown for so long.  He was the sort of guy that everyone wanted to watch.  Barry McGuigan

 

 

He [Alex Higgins] loved his gambling.  He loved his smoking.  He loved his drinking.  He loved everything.  He loved everything.  He must have worn out two bodies.  Easy.  He will be missed.  Ray Reardon

 

 

You can shove your snooker up your jacksie.  Alex Higgins  

 

 

I like all things that a fellow at twenty-five likes including my wine, women and song.  And I don’t think I should be deprived of that sort of thing just because I play snooker.  Alex Higgins  

 

 

This time I’m in the top two.  After next week in Birmingham I think I’ll be the top one.  Alex Higgins, interview Nationwide, BBC 1972

 

 

Alex In Headbutt Fury.  News sports article

 

 

They call him Hurricane.  Hurricane Higgins.  A quiet man.  A confident man.  You’d never notice him in a crowd.  But in his own twilight world Hurricane Higgins is almost a god.  Commentary c.1970s cited Alex Higgins: The People’s Champion, BBC 2010

 

 

It was his first year as a professional, his first world championship, and here he was in the final.  Alex Higgins: The People’s Champion, BBC 2010

 

8The prize money for the world championship of 1972: £400.  And this was the only tournament in town.  ibid.

 

Snooker was about to be re-launched in a brand new vehicle: colour television.  ibid.

 

In the new age of snooker there would soon be a fresh crop of outrageous talents.  Cue Jimmy White and the semi-final of the world championship of 1982 when the Whirlwind met the Hurricane.  ibid.

 

Matchroom was clean-cut corporate-friendly snooker and no player was better at it than Steve Davis.  ibid.

 

The fire still burned but consistency was the new mantra.  The champion of inconsistency [Higgins] lost more frequently.  His frustrations grew and so did his addictions to gambling and drinking.  ibid.  

 

He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998 ...  ibid. 

 

 

Can Bill Werbenuik be the second Canadian to rewrite the history books?  Ted Lowe  

 

 

This young man Jimmy White celebrated his 22nd birthday literally four days ago.  Ted Lowe

 

 

And Griffiths has looked at that blue four times now, and it still hasnt moved.  Ted Lowe  

 

 

That’s inches away from being millimetre perfect.  Ted Lowe  

 

 

Steve, with his sip of water, part of his make-up.  Ted Lowe  

 

 

He’s completely disappeared.  He’s gone back to his dressing room; nobody knows where he has gone.  Ted Lowe  

 

 

99 times out of a 1000 he would have potted that ball.  Ted Lowe  

 

 

And it is my guess that Steve Davis will try to score as many points as he can this frame.  Ted Lowe  

 

 

All square all the way round.  Ted Lowe

 

 

Jimmy White has that wonderful gift of being able to point his cue where his is looking.  Ted Lowe  

 

 

The match has gradually and suddenly come to a climax.  David Vine  

 

 

Suddenly Alex Higgins was 7-0 down.  David Vine  

 

 

Ray Reardon, one of the great Crucible champions, won it five times, when the championship was played away from the Crucible.  David Vine    

 

 

10-4, and it could mean exactly what it means.  David Vine  

 

 

No-one came closer to winning the title last year than the runner-up Dennis Taylor.  David Vine  

 

 

When you start off it’s nil-nil.  Steve Davis  

 

 

I’ve always said the difference between winning and losing is nothing at all.  Terry Griffiths  

 

 

And now snooker, and Steve Davis has crashed out of the UK Billiards Championship.  Allan Taylor  

 

 

I am an entertainer.  The Rack Pack, Alex, BBC 2016

 

I’m a snooker player.  In the end you’re on your own.  ibid.  him to her

 

Bigger even than wrestling.  ibid.  Hearn to Davis

 

It’s magic innit.  ibid.  White with Hearn & Davis et al, re Alex   

 

We need to create an aura of invisibility about you.  ibid.  Hearn to Davis

 

They’ll think you’re a total asshole.  And that is what we want.  ibid.    

 

But at least I miss with style.  ibid.  Alex to Hearn

 

You know what the people want?  Me.  ibid.  

 

Before me it was just old farts taking it in turns to miss.  ibid.  Alex

 

 

‘The snooker players became pop stars.’  Sporting Greats: Steve Davis, Sky Sports 2017

 

Dominating the sport of snooker Steve Davis would rise to fame in the 1980s.  ibid.

 

‘Almost unbeatable.’  ibid.  Barry Hearn

 

In 1989 Davis claimed his sixth and final world championship.  ibid.
