    I much enjoyed watching 'Pot Black' in the '70s.
    RIP
    for those watching in black and white, the green is next to the pink ((:>) (excuse the frivolity on a R I P thread)
  • A very measured snooker player - my Dad met him and said he was top class, real gent - RIP

  • Potted the black!

    RIP. Great memories, great player!
  • It might be memory playing tricks on me (yet again!) but seem to recall DM used to line the cue up to the side of his jaw on the inside rather than the traditional technique of in the middle? It worked for him and he was a top player in his day.

    RIP Doug
  • Fond memories of snooker in its heyday including Doug. RIP.
  • RIP. I remember his career unexpectedly having a second wind in the late 80s
  • Doug was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1993, so did really well all things considered.RIP.

    I think you will find Graham Miles was the player who lined his cue up that way.

    Thanks.

    As I said, memory playing tricks, which happens more and more often these days!
