Happy anniversaryFeel like I could've done with another week or so break, but the Players Championship kicked off today. Dimitri is out first round, along with Gurney, Lewis, Ratajski, plus Bunting, Dolan and others.
It's on ITV4 tonight, but it's my wedding anniversary, so I don't think the missus will be impressed if I put it on.
Thanks! Surprised Gurney was still in the top 10 given the run of form he's had.Happy anniversary
Gurney is now out of the top 10 after that defeat, been in awful for for a while now.
Wades in a spot of bother 3-0 down to Zonneveld. Anderson came from 4-1 down to beat Keegan 6-4
Yeah hope he can make a decent fight of it- he did average just over 100 this arvo and he'll need to again.That’s true, if Price or MVG play the way they currently are in the final, think King will get blown a way
Feck knows how to easily work out the routes to the last 8.Now the draws been made, time for predictions
MVG V Dimitri
Smith V Heta
Wright V Searle
Price V Aspinall
Winner - MVG
Outside 32 wildcard (probably giving him the kiss of death like I did with Clemens last year)
It's to do with the current rules and needing to finish on time and not overrunning. It will return next year.Bit shit that there’s no tie brakes in deciding sets at the worlds, the World matchplay had to be won by two clear legs, the players are all in a bubble together so they won’t be mixing with fans.
MVG looked back to near his best at the player championship. Think Heta and Searle could both have a good run. Heta reminds me so much of James Wade, just has a very solid all round game.Who's everyone's pick?
Or good outside chance?
I went with Peter Wright last year.
This year it's a tough one to call.
Could certainly be a new name on the trophy since there's been no regular consistency from anyone really.
Going to go with Wright again and Price/Aspinall in with a shout.
I don't think Heta has enough quite yet I think quarters is about his limit right now.MVG looked back to near his best at the player championship. Think Heta and Searle could both have a good run. Heta reminds me so much of James Wade, just has a very solid all round game.
My favourite player, he just seems a great guy, always smiling. His counting is horrible and some of his shot-outs are just pure bonkers at timesI don't think Heta has enough quite yet I think quarters is about his limit right now.
MvG, Price, Aspinal,Wright for me I can't see anyone else doing it. The Special one won the Grand Slam but he's not all that yet for me.
And doing so with the same darts as I use. But yes you have to be good to dress like that.Good job Wright is looking decent. Can you imagine going out in the first round dressed like that as world champ
I hope it put him off because he comes across as a complete d*ck!!Poor Steve West how are you meant to play against someone looking like that
