I agree his A game none of them could have beaten but I'd have backed them to all to beat him 6 times out of 10 based on consistency levels the Menace especially.

Nothing correct about that spelling. Is it on Polish immigrant mode?

He's below the top three.
Your opinion on the validity of barneys lakeshite titles determines whether he is above him.

Priestley would have been a 5 time world champion at least but for Taylor and he still won 2 one of which was in a unified field the other in which he did actually beat Taylor. He'd have beat Barney and the others who were winning Lakeshite back then no doubt. Only the best player in the game's history stopped Priestley being somewhere near Lowe and Brissy in an all time list.

Taylor wasn't in the field when Barney won them so they have to be devalued.

Then mvg has more titles than him.
Sky call barney as five time world champion but call bunting as lakeshite champion.

Yeah they do pick and choose what suits. Having said that whatever you think of Barney's titles, Bunting's title was won in one of the weakest fields ever seen probably only beaten by the Lakeshite's since and the 94 one.

Part is called a three time Champ but his 94 win is worth fuck all.

Has to be top 5. I hate the guy but what he has done before the age of 30 is remarkable. If he gets to 5 world titles he would go top 3 along with Bristow and Taylor.

I am merely commenting on the votes.

as for the validity of lakeshite titles, every single fucking one of them since the split is worthless.
May as well be called the DBG world Bedroom champs....not worth a fuck

I'd put MvG ahead of Barney, Barney has never truly dominated the game save for 6 months nearly a decade ago. MvG is the third player in the game's professional history to dominate an era. Taylor's dominance was obviously freakish in terms of how long it lasted but MvG could be at the top as long as Bristow was at least maybe longer depending on how much he wants it and providing things beyond his control don't stop it like they did with Eric.
