Europe winning 6-5 against the yanks. Tup you must be watching this. I'm surprised you're nae playing.

Massive pockets on the table as well. Pretty much impossible to miss.

Agree with you there, Shrek is tremendous pool player, love the Mosconi Cup - for me this is what makes me know Christmas is around the corner. Superb drama.

This crowd would really get under Earl's skin, just a pity he's not playing in these types of competitions still, he was great for drama and a good argument.

Oh, and the shot played on Tuesday night by Van Den Berg was absolutely amazing.

I'd beat any of them.

Especially on home turf, I ken the roll on the table like the back of my hand.

If it's nine-ball, it's pish though.

A totally different game, made up by yanks.

Just googled it, I'd never heard of it before, sounds like good value.

We play our own version of this every Monday night, with pubs instead of continents participating obviously.

I reckon I could get into the Europe team pretty easily.

He still plays I believe, but not been in Mosconi Cup since 2008/2009 I don't think, he was some entertainment.

The best, complaining to Michaela Tabb because the crowd were calling him names, even Michaela smiled to herself.

Johnny Archer is still playing yeah.

Its decent like, although not as good as when earl played.

Seems quite an easy version of pool as the balls hit the cushion 12" from the pocket and still seem to go in!

I'd like to point out that Stoney seems to be a decent bloke.
I met him at Tynecastle last season and he seemed spot on to me.
So I'd lay off the abuse to him lads.

Europe won apparently.

I switched off after Melling won his game, some great play from him.

The shot from Melling when he was snookered was incredible.

He was loving it.

The final match where Van Den Berg played DeChaine - that was the most nervous and poorest of pool games I've ever seen. Some poor shots and decision making, but this was completely due to the nerves.

The crowd were superb.

I agree it was awesome, the way is spun when it came off the cushion too. And he made the pot as well. Great shot.

Earl is the man, Mosconi Cup this year will be excellent if he has anything to do with it.

 

Rodney Morris has a tendency to lose it a little as well.

 

Soccer AM thing isn't on for long, Earl is the MAN.
