@soulsoulsoulAre you not sorrysorrysorry?I do not know why you keep trolling , muppet .Never did I see this result thought it was Anderson or MVG wrote all over this.Looking forward to world championships as long as we can keep mummys boys off the forum.
Sparkledim. True, but MVG won 8 out of the 13 Euro tour events. An incredible feat. Even taking those away, he won 11 other tournaments to Gary’s 8. Having said all that, I think it’s too close to call about who will lift the World title. I would suggest, though, that the bookies will have MVG as favourite.
Well done Superchin, top top player and great attitude. Good luck in World's!!
So many anti-Price comments!! You don't think the greats ever used gamesmanship before. You don't think Taylor slowed down play or gestured to the crowd, when playing MvG? Price will never win the big one because he is not good enough but I think his actions are funny. It's Anderson's fault that he couldn't cope. People who criticise Price for his gamesmanship are morons with short memories
Just brilliant to see Gerwyn Price get knocked out early - that made the tournament for me!
Sid, Anderson does not play on the European tour. Of which Van Gerwen has won 8.
Brilliant stuff in the last few legs, well done Daryl Gurney - a class act!
Well done super chin 👏👏👏
@5. Chill out you fun sponge. The days of players getting tanked up on stage or indeed beforehand are long gone. Would you also prefer for the crowd to sit in silence and applaud when someone wins?, so what if they have a few beers and sing, it adds to the atmosphere and the players don't mind, they always comment on how it gives them a buzz
great tournament, with the pdc world champs one side of the draw is a great opportunity to make a semi or final. rooting for Barney and Michael Smith this year.
@10. Posted by GM Massingbird I agree, certainly with regards to having a different finalist. They won't be kept apart in the World Championship though, seedings are already decided.
Wade has a baby....wins tv tournamentPrice gets married....wins tv tournamentGurney has a baby.....wins tv tournamentNeed to find out now who's getting married / having a baby so I can lump on for the worlds !!!Great final by the way.
I found myself really invested in this tournament and I think the shorter format games might have been the reason. There shouldn't be a change to the World Championship but the First to X legs format does allow for more opportunities for upsets, or in the case of Price/Ratajski game an incredible comeback.
@1.Ultimately it doesn’t really matter if there are a couple of women playing in the World Champs. It’s good publicity for the Women’s game. I sincerely doubt either will get through the first round, though don’t ask me to explain why. There is no physical reason why men are better are darts. Maybe they have more bottle? I await the backlash, but facts are facts.
Not sure why everyone gets on price's back. Darts needs a pantomime villain.... Hankey, Manley, King, there's been some greats! Price is next in line.Hard to pick a favourite for the worlds. Most would say Anderson but he does have a tendency to choke on occasion. Cross looks way out of form. MVG wobbly. Wright no good in longer format. Gurney has a chance.
GM Massingbird. On what basis do you say that Anderson is this year’s best player? Both MVG and Anderson have won 3 Major tournaments each, but MVG has won 19 tournaments overall, compared to Anderson’s 8. I do concede that Anderson has been playing better in the last few months, but certainly not over the whole year.
