Wish it could've gone 6-5, see how MVG would've handled another set under pressure. Pretty decent final, but even when Wright was coming back, it always felt inevitable Van Gerwen would win.

Also, so happy I won't have to hear that exhausted "Toure" song anymore.

That was a Cracking final. Did call mvg winning it 7 sets to 4 over Wright. But there were a few darts at double in opening legs that Wright just missed but then two massive sets in middle part of game & had Wright taken even 1 of those 2 sets in question I reckon Wright would of won the match as mvg head was gone he trying to coast his way through rest of game to finishing line. When ,vg chucked that dart out of the board I seriously thought mvg was going lose how he managed to pick off that 72 checkout only he knows, considering how bad he was on tops to hit it flush at the end to win the World title in that kinda pressure was impressive to me.

Also Barry Hearn announced the 2014 PL darts players after the final

Top 4 in the pdc order of merit (in order)

1. Mvg 2. Taylor 3. Whitlock 4. Lewis

4 pdc picks

Wright, Thorton, Newton & chisnall

2 sky picks

Barney & Anderson

I've got to be honest but the whole relegation scenario makes little justification if you just invite the 2 players back in to event having failed to make week 10 the previous year by getting relegated in Anderson & Newton. Who both had stunningly bad 2013 & lucky make last years event anyway. Both totally underserved to in the event this year as well. Hamilton can consider himself unlucky but he had shocking end to year but you have to question why chisnall made it who himself did same but like chisnall also made a major tv final last year (Hamilton reached the 2013 uk open final). Wade the major name to miss out but his not won a tv major in 3 years now & had poor showing last year off the tv & on tv also if you look at that & his mental health issues then a year away from the Pl might be the best thing for him.

Completely agree, unless you support Manchester City you're an absolute plank if you still find this chant amusing or are still singing it.


For what was essentially a glorified walkover, that was a pretty entertaining match. Despite what Pyke and co. were saying, van Gerwen was always in complete control yet Wright kept close enough and had sufficient chances to keep it good to watch. Really wanted it to go to 6-5 just to see if MvG was capable of holding throw to win a world title.

Also interesting PL lineup, Chisnall, Wright and Gando make it but Wade misses out! I'd say it's probably best if he takes some time off anyway, can't help but think back to his antics at the Masters (when he virtually started a fight with Whitlock on stage) and remembering thinking to myself how much the guy needs a break from the game. Glad Andy Hamilton hasn't made it, boring as fuck to watch.

Reckon Chisnall and Wright will be the two to get 'relegated'.

I agree with the guy above though, the whole relegation concept is pointless if they come back the year after anyway. If it were up to me I'd scrap the bottom two thing, cut it back down to 8 players then each night have a 'special guest' match if you will, e.g. If they're in Yorkshire then invite Dean Winstanley and Scott Waites to have a game (provided the BDO don't get all anal about it), then in Liverpool invite Stephen Bunting to play someone, maybe even a celebrity like Jamie Carragher or Stevie Gerrard, basically just a fun 'first to 5 match' between two local people to keep the crowd happy and break the night up a bit like.

No Wade? Gutted. Rather him than boring Anderson. Wade could explode at any minute.

It's no surprise Sky went for Barney and Anderson, they are crowd favourites...Wade yeah is a weird one to not be included. Would rather Wade than Newton or Chisnall both will finish bottom or near to

True but I've never understood the love for Anderson, stupid shirts aside. He's very inconsistent too. Him or Newton, Chisnall too wouldn't be missed. Wade will be though.

When he's on form (which he is at the minute), he's relatively fun to watch due to his pace and power scoring, plus he's the main 'Scottish draw'. His place does seem undeserved, but I'd rather watch him every week as opposed to Andy Hamilton or Justin Pipe or Brendan Dolan or any other slow player with all the charisma and excitement of a wet paper bag.

I'd like some clarification from Wade as to whether he was actually consulted over whether he wanted a PL place, if he wasn't then that's pretty low from Hearn and the PDC, he should be in on merit without a doubt (atleast more than Anderson/Barneveld/Newton) and you can't just claim he's not in on 'medical grounds' if you've not even asked him whether he wants to take part. Reckon the PDC have excluded him because they're terrified of the looming PR disaster when he inevitably starts a fight on stage or something of that nature.

He's got the Scottish fans for sure but he was shite in the Premier League last year. I wouldn't miss him at all. The expansion from 8 to 10 was all well & good to give the fans more matches, but usually it's another a couple of matches you're not that bothered to watch.
