He was from the era of snooker when you followed the stars for fun, rather than watch the match. RIP, Alex.

And in his day the players were characters and well known,not like the cardboard cut outs they've got today.

God bless you Alex.

A real character, he had been fighting cancer for nearly 10 years, couldn't believe the recent pictures of him, a sad loss R.I.P.

That's sad to hear, though I have no doubt he'd had a rollicking life and seen and done more than the rest of us put together.

 

That's a bit of a trip down memory lane for an ancient sod like me - I have fond memories of Weekend afternoons sitting with my old Dad in front of the black & white TV watching the snooker legends play back in the UK, coal fire burning in the grate, Mum in the kitchen cooking up dinner.......

 

Snooker was funny on TV back then - Commentator: "he's going for the green", followed by "that's the ball in the top left corner of your screen" - because all the balls were grey as far as we were concerned :GoldenSmile1:

 

R.I.P. Alex, thanks for the memories.

Perthie's PA Bash and Bikini/Glow Party 19th May 2017.  Bikini clad girls in body paint, great food including pig roast, free shots, games and prizes for the lads and lasses.

RIP alex..

1982 - 69 Clearance (BBC)

15 frames to 14 down. 59-0 down in frame 30. Higgins produces the greatest 'pressure break' in Crucible history.

 

the blue at 3 minutes is just unbelivable :GoldenSmile1:

Met Alex a few times he used to come to the island to share a few beerski's with his good mate Ollie Reed! He was a gentleman to which nothing was too much trouble and he always took time to chat with his fans at exhibition matches or when he was socialising in the pub!

I met him twice, albeit briefly and saw him play at Sheffield in the early eighties. People were queueing to buy him drinks at the bar in between sessions! Also relieved himself in a plant pot during the tournament as I seem to remember. From a different era, when sportsmen seemed like real people who wanted to entertain the crowd and the fans forgave them their shortcomings. RIP Alex, you will be missed but never forgotten...

R I P Alex Higgins, the man that made snooker fashionable

 

I watched Alex play doubles with Jimmy White many years ago at an exhibition match in Birmingham, it was outrageous the way he potted some of the balls, and the banter whilst sipping his vodka and orange was priceless.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
