Every since that World Grand Prix display, Chisnall has really been poor but before the final he has had a great 2013 the same can be said for Kim Huybrechts but these last 2-3 months in terms of getting a wild card spot for following years Premier League is massive. Look at Hamilton & Painter in 2011 both made the 2012 PL due to what they had done in final few months of 2011 in Players Championship in Painters case & at the Worlds in Hamilton's case respectively.

I get the feeling that Newton wont return in next years PL. I Didn't think he deserved be in this years & his performances this year to me don't suggest he will make next years the only way he make the PL is if he wins tonight's QF v Wright. Anderson again to me think is set to miss out & Hamilton last 2-3 months have been shocking. He set plummet to 9-11th in the OoM & performance at Worlds think has all but eliminated him from getting a wild card spot in a next Years PL.

I imagine the sure bets will be Taylor, Barney, Whitlock, Lewis, Wade & MvG. If you add in the 3 new faces that is mentioned above of Huybrechts, Wright & Chisnall. You get left with an unknown 10th man my guess is that Thornton will take that last remaining spot as things stand. I say as it stands cos IMO that 10th spot may go to one of Webster or White depending on who goes further in the worlds.

Re: Any Darts Fans?

Taylor, Lewis, MvG, Wade, Whitlock and Barney are absolute dead locks for a PL place. With Wright getting to the semi's of the worlds and playing like he is, he looks as good as certain to be in, plus it's hard to ignore Thornton given his form, PL campaign last year and Grand Slam run; this leaves in my eyes Huybrechts, Anderson, Chisnall, Newton and perhaps Hamilton and White fighting for the remaining two places. Pipe was perhaps in with a shout if he had a good run at the worlds but is now out of the equation after losing to Devon Petersen second round. Webster could maybe come into it but he'd probably have to win the World Championships to come into any sort of consideration, especially given how often the Sky pundits (and most importantly Rod Harrington who helps picks the PL wildcards) talk about his frailties and failure of a PL campaign last time round.

If I had to take a guess at the two who'll make it, I'll say Anderson and Newton. I think Anderson has just about scraped in by returning to form since the Grand Prix and almost putting out MvG at the WC, and Newtons solid showings in the past few weeks should stick in the mind and earn him a place. Coming into the worlds I'd have said Huybrechts and Chisnall were the favourites to make it from the aforementioned players, but their poor showings have really damaged their chances, Chisnall to a greater extent. I'm a Chizzy fan but think it's probably best for his career if he didn't get in this year, he's been a mess since Taylor smacked him all over the oche at the GP final and a Premier League campaign for him at this moment in time could get very Mark Webster-esque indeed.

Oh and a cracking night of darts tonight, Whitlock v White in particular was enthralling. Valiant effort by White, but is anyone really surprised it ended as close as it did given Whitlocks track record of whacking the self destruct button? Just off the top of my head he did it against Hamilton TWICE in 2011, against Hankey at the Grand Slam, and almost again tonight. Good performance nonetheless though, and not really bothered about who wins now (preferably not Lewis but only so someone different gets a chance to put their name on the trophy).

Re: Any Darts Fans?

I saw a hbo special on darts in the UK last spring. Ppl went to the event dressed like Alice in Wonderland and Halloween stuff. They showed a clip of the fans and they were all doing the fandango arm movements. Is darts where the fandango arm motion came from? I know that raw after wm29 had a lot of European dudes so it's something to think about

Re: Any Darts Fans?

Not even close, Wade just doesn't (and can't) score well enough against the power scorers like MvG and Lewis anymore. It's fine finishing well but if you're only averaging high 80's/low 90's against players who hit more 140's than 100's, then you're going to have to be consistently doing 3 figure checkouts just to hold throw and it's just not sustainable.

Can't wait for the MvG/Lewis game tomorrow, Whitlock/Wright ought to be a cracker as well.

Re: Any Darts Fans?

Wade was awful!

I am saying MVG vs Wright final

Re: Any Darts Fans?

Brilliant performance by Peter Wright.

MvG vs. Lewis should be a cracker, really can't call it.

MVG currently making Lewis look like a fucking joke.

Re: Any Darts Fans?

Well that was disappointing. Lewis didn't turn up and MVG was on fire.

MVG
