Finding some form currently.

I averaged 101 for four legs the other day, then it dropped to 72. Not bad.

Q-School is interesting, hope Mark Forman gets his card. Good player but blows hot and cold. He's a steady 90+ average player when he's on it. Makes super league and county look easy.

As I said in the other thread, chuffed Devon Peterson has a tour card this time around. Also saw today that there's a Darts player from India that has a card this year as well which is great to boost the popularity of the sport over there.

Which of the Lakeshite lot have gone to q school? I know Wilson has, solid player.
Pretty sure Robbie Green has and got in as well, and I think Norris (?), although I'm not 100% sure if he was BDO? If so he got his tour card and has hit two 9-darters in the last 4 days so starting the new year in half decent form.

Ah yes Norris was BDO - never done anything special though apart from reaching the 2014 finals. I saw on advertisement for a dart tournament on ITV4 which is starting in two weeks. Only ever usually watch the PDC and BDO WC but loved them both this year that I'm really getting into it, so think I'll watch that.

I found including that Spanish guy a bit odd. Thornton was much more worthy of a place.
Spanish? Do you mean Kim Huybrechts (Belgium)?

Thornton is the better player, but the Premier League is just a glorified exhibition really, and I don't think many people tune in for Thornton. He's solid, steady, tough to beat, but isn't a Premier League 'character'. He's had a decent couple of years in it, but I can see why they've made the change. They're trying to 'make' Kim Huybrechts.

Ahhh, Belgium yes.

It was the PDC awards evening last night. No surprises that a certain newly crowned world champ cleaned up :cool:















Three of my favourite players collecting big awards (Anderson, Wadey and Bunting :cool:)

Ridiculous darts tonight, 114 average from Lewis. MvG on fire too and Anderson has just beaten Taylor at the death, again. Great night to kick off with.

Good first day of the UK Open, only spoiled by Chris Mason's shirt.

Lewis the biggest name out with some cracking ties to come tomorrow afternoon (Bunting/Chisnall) the highlight.

Van Gerwen and Taylor looking unstoppable but enjoying Big Devon giving it a go.

Great tournament this UK Open.

Peter Wright beat Taylor and then has just beaten Bunting 10-0.

Him v MvG will be very tasty after last weeks row.

Gilding's one of those along with Ian White that has the potential to be absolute dynamite when he's on his game.

My god he's got some terrible teeth on him but Gilding lived in the 60 bed all match, everything was going in there. MvG showing his champion spirit to fend him off though and come through.

Can't see much stopping him to be honest. Everyone else is pretty inconsistent.

Especially Anderson at the moment, real surprise.
