Oh dear. Instead of appreciating a magnificent game of snooker you have to bring up the past. Just enjoy the brilliance of both players. Jeez.

Brilliant from Higgins. Destroyed him all night.

Wonder how Ronnie will try to make this all about him though, as he usually does when he gets scudded. Probably announce another fake retirement for the 9th time and pretend he hasn't practiced since 1985. Sad really.

Oh come on, that "nosh off" press conference is absolute gold. You can't bring that up as though it's a bad thing.

BBC stuck in the 80s with this being the #1 sports story on my homepage. Even though I’ve never watched a minute of this snore fest in my life or read about it. BBC - your head of UX needs sacking and please go and cover a sport played by more people than compete in tiddlywinks each year

UP VOTE!

Easy! Only the dafties say it is ROS. Can you imagine if there were twenty tourneys a year back in the nineties? Hendry and Higgins would have double the titles.

And, it was not too long ago that ROS finally overtook Higgins for title count.
And without mental health issues ROS would have 10 world titles you fool! Removed

Higgins is a stone cold brown envelope lover. And a fat ugly one at that. Removed

Why is Higgins so fat, ugly and miserable looking?

I guess there is some karma in the world after all.

Hahaha I see there's a lot of comments from all those bitter little O'Sullivan losers. Live with it, sweethearts. Good riddance O'Sullivan
Would much rather be supporting a man who lost than a fat cheat who won.

Each to their own though.

The feel good factor from the commentators and us watching was rubbished by Ronnie saying he made too many mistakes. Wrong Ronnie, you played well and were forced into safety mistakes from the relentlessness of Higgins accuracy every time. Just admit that it was a very high standard from the two of you but the other guy was really impressive.
You’re a fanny mate. Listen to his whole interview Removed

John Higgins has always been great, but this titanium ferrule has elevated him to a whole new level. I can see him dominating snooker for the next 10 years, eclipsing ROS’s records one by one.
Nah he has to throw a frame or 2 to keep bookeys happy. Cheat Removed

Higgins shouldn't even be given any media coverage.
Just blank him out completely. He's irrelevant.
O'Sullivan fans really are childish idiots when he loses. Removed
Look up steven Lee then call him a cheat you small minded sassenachs. Read. Think. Understand. Go into a room with gangsters, and tell them "no i won't cheat", and see how you get on pal! ?? Removed
Once a cheat always a cheat, so cheats do prosper Removed
Loving listening to the average Ronnie fan go full Trump supporter over this. Why don't you storm the arena you absolute idiots ?? you lost, accept it. Even Ron says John is the best. Or did Ron maybe throw this match!? That's the only explanation, as he's so good? ???? Removed

I do thanks, every day. But, unlike Higgins, at least I don't need to use one to see my feet when I'm standing up.
wow, does your mum know you were up that late trolling the snooker comments. You should get some help you seem a tad angry. Removed
I called Higgins a cheat, which he is, and the moderator removed my post! Can't handle the truth, BBC? Removed

Can't stand Higgins. Looks miserable as sin all the time. And he's supposed to be entertaining people?!

With that face on him, the only entertaining thing about him is that he looks like a potato.

Higgins seems to be such a nice guy, really humble in the post-match interview as well. You want to see him go on and win the Masters after being in the finals of the World Championships for three years in a row.

Super glad for John. Ronnie in recent years is turning out to be a grumpy, arrogant and condescending old fart.
I think you are being too kind..he's turned into a complete arrogant dick head who can't be bothered to shave,wash or comb his hair. Removed
