Very little written about career highlights[edit]

Resolved

1st point (UK win): Maguire won the UK Championship in 2004 in great style. Why then is so little written about it here? It was arguably the highlight of his career thus far.

2nd point (praise): When Maguire came within 4 frames of Ronnie O'Sullivan at the 2004 World Championship, I can recall O'Sullivan tipping Maguire to win the tournament 2 or 3 times in the future. Then when O'Sullivan lost 6-1 to Maguire at the 2004 British Open, I think he claimed Maguire was the best player in the world? I also seem to remember O'Sullivan saying Maguire could rule the game 'for the next 10 years' when Maguire beat him 9-6 at the 2004 UK Championship. And I am certain that Steve Davis described him as 'inspired' when he beat the nugget 9-2. Some may argue that this information is unimportant, but I believe that these statements put great pressure on Maguire and that is why he has arguably not won as much as many expected (particularly the elusive World title)

Can someone help? I am not the best at searching for references, and indeed my past in Wikipedia is somewhat undesirable so I want to make sure of my business before I make any mistakes. But I am almost certain of the above information. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.251.186.211 (talk) 01:06, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

I also recall O'Sullivan saying that Maguire was playing the best snooker in the world when he lost to him in the British Open in 2004. All the information you state is relevant and should be included in the article, but it is so long ago now in internet terms we are limited in what we can reference. One of the main problems is that the mainstream press doesn't carry reports on snooker anymore so you're basically left with the BBC and the WSA site for all the news and quotes. The WSA bless them revamped the site last year and scrapped everything up to that point. BBC news stories stay up for years, but unfortunately they only tend to focus on tournaments they are carrying which are the Grand Prix, UK, Masters and WC. The British Open was on Sky so I doubt we will track down any of the stories about that. The best bet for referencing Maguire's UK win is the BBC which carried the tournament.

Well I've edited the page now, and included links so I think everything's sorted now.
