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.
