Hi Snooker fans,

As some of you may now we now have our very own magazine which is released at the end of each month. We are attempting to add as much content and vary the sports we cover every month and would like to feature some snooker in the 3rd edition. With that being said I am looking for a couple of people who would be able to write some preview/review pieces for the following upcoming tournaments:


2014 World Championship Review

You don't need to be a journalist or have experience or anything. Just an interest in the sport and ability/time to write something is suffice.

The magazine is a great source of income to keep the forum and all subsequent areas of it (Podcasts & V2 Journal) running so any help that can be given is of great benefit to all.

Just PM me or post on here if you are interested in covering either of the topics.

Regards Owen,

I can do the WC preview but am a bit swamped at the moment so if anyone else wants to do it they are welcome to.

Hi Pal,

Would be fantastic if you could do it, not had interest from anywhere else. Your piece on the Masters was excellent so know your more than capable.

Magazine is published on the 31st so as long as I get it by 29th it's ok...still alright to do this?

Almost bizarre to see a WC draw without Mark ' I'm not really bothered' Williams. His conqueror, Alan McManus' 1st rounder against John Higgins has 'stinker' written all over it and that's coming from a Scotsman. Betting-wise, O'Sullivan is the shortest-priced favourite since Hendry's heyday and only the big-hitters will have some of the 6/4 or so on offer. However, only 2 bad sessions in a match will stop him equalling Davis' and Reardon's tally and only a fool would bet against him bettering Stephen ' Good luck in the divorce court, Mandy ' Hendry's record Crucible tally. Me ? We're long overdue 2 or more 147s in the same tournament so I've taken the 6/1 on offer.
Bring it on. Let's hope, at the very least, we get a final that stays in the mind for longer than 30 sec.

Sorry if I struggle to drum up any enthusiasm for this tournament which once was the height of excitement and expectation. Standards have dipped and with it the competitiveness has gone with it. Who was it that tried to claim snooker today has so much strength in depth compared to the 80s and 90s?

I'm loathe to say this but :

Hear hear.

Snooker is fading, year by year, from the mainstream and Barry Hearn has his work cut out to change matters.
I love the game, in fact I'll watch a Barry Pinches-Gary Wilkinson 35-framer (just) but even I'm struggling to muster enthusiasm. The amount of snooker on this board says it all.

The thing is the sport needs competitiveness and great rivalries and it just doesn't have it anymore. In the past we had Davis v White or A.Higgins or Hendry V White or Davis or J.Higgins or O'Sullivan or Williams etc etc etc. Now it is O'Sullivan V who? It is clear that since John Higgins went past his best as have others like Williams nobody has stepped in to take up the baton as consistent challenger and the sport is suffering for it. We have had false dawns like Judd Trump and Mark Allen to name two but they are not in the category of consistent challengers and I doubt they ever will be. Sad and I see nothing looming on the horizon.

Interesting World Championship once all was said and done; fair few upsets and a great final albeit not the best for those that wanted high breaks and fast action.

Anyone able to do a review for the magazine? Deadline June 2nd...although if it can be done before then that would be a big bonus.

Let me know on here or via a PM, thanks in advance.

I'm so busy at the moment but I'll have it done by the end of the month (after the 27th I'm free).
