[Archived] Prem League Of Darts At King George's

Recommended Posts

Taylor decided to ditch the glasses for last nights match against Wes Newton, played better without them but certainly not upto his usual high standard.

Apparently he is considering having laser eye surgery.

A great win for Scott Waites, to come back from 8-0 down to win 16-12,being as Waites is a BDO player I can see him getting a call from the PDC very soon.

Nicholson and Webster were good, I think they will go far.

Phil was 1st round Phil as usual, not at his best to say the least.

I really don't this Phil Taylor will win this world championship, so many good players on form are gunning for him.

Nothing against Gary Mawson but if Taylor was playing a form player last night he could have been going home. Taylor had an average of 89 in that match, certainly no where near what is needed to get through this tournament.

Yeah he would've been annihilated by anyone in half decent form.

Terrible standard last night for those two.

I woulda beaten Mawson last night!

Anyone see the Prem League darts tonight, the crowd were a disgrace during the Anderson v Lewis match I know the crowd were supporting the Scotsman Anderson and you expect boo's from the crowd when Lewis was throwing. But to chuck beer at Lewis during the walk on and also throw coins at him when he was on stage was a disgrace.

Anderson was clearly emabarrassed by this, fair play to Lewis who carried on and went on to win the match although I think Anderson had given up towards the end and just wanted to get off the stage, it clearly affected his game as well.

Prmier League Darts finals tonight, Semi Finals: Taylor Vs Lewis and Barney Vs Anderson.

Should be some cracking games tonight, Taylor was beaten by Lewis in the first game of the league although Taylor has not lost a game since and that includes a win over Lewis.

Lewis will have to step up his game to beat Taylor tonight, the other semi should be a close one, Barney has never got past the semi final stage in this tournament, his opponent tonight Gary Anderson has got to the semi finals in his first Premier League year and has been the form player behind Taylor, close one to call.

What happend to Lewis, he blew Taylor apart in the semi although Taylor was below his usual standard, then in the final Lewis looked a shadow of the player who had played a couple hours earlier.

Anderson was on fine form especially in the final, the third and fourth place play off seemed a waste of time, Taylor and Barney not really bothered about it, you could tell through their body language, would be better making the semi's and final a longer format.

Fair play to Anderson! Deserved it and glad he won it after letting himself down a bit in the World final.

Lewis did what Anderson has been guilty of in the past and bottled it a little in the final.

A good start from Anderson, and the relentless heavy scoring effectively put Lewis away early. At 6-1 you could clearly see Lewis had given up and just wanted to get off stage!

Good final but a shame Lewis didn't dig in and put up a bit more of a fight.

Anyone been watching the World Grand Prix this week, semi finals tonight

Wade Vs Dolan

Taylor Vs Burnett

On paper it would look like a Taylor Wade final, but there has been a few surprises this week, Dolan has played well in front of his home crowd and Burnett has been rolling back the years this week and has played fantastic.

Fantastic nine darter from Dolan, the first player to do it in the history of the Grand Prix, as this tournament is a double to start as well as finish, it makes getting the nine darter even more special.

Start of the World Championship tonight and I think it will be close this year, there are a few contenders for the title.

Phil Taylor: Looking for world title number 16 and has had a good 2011, picking up World matchplay, European Championship, Grand Prix and Grand Slam titles.

Adrian Lewis: Current World champion looking to keep hold of his title, although has not really built on his world championship win this year.

Gary Anderson: Beaten finalist in the world championship 12 months ago, but went on to win the Premier League this year.

James Wade: Could it be his year, with his off stage problems behind him he has picked up the UK Open title already this year.

Mark Webster: Former BDO world champion, made it to the semi finals last year after putting out Phil Taylor.

Raymond Van Barneveld: A poor year by his standards, but could he up his game to start 2012 on a high.

I would like to see Wade win it this year, but really can't see anyone beating Taylor.

from an unofficial darts site... what a shock today!

Steve Brown 2-3 Devon Petersen

Again the last game has to follow something special! Bomber takes the first set 3-0, and Devon will need to up his game else this could be going 3 zip. Both players trading breaks in set 2. 1-1, then Brown hits a 180. 2-2 in set 2. Bomber throwing to take a 2 set lead… Petersen breaks! Game is all evens, 1 set all. 2-2 now.. Petersen throwing tho for the set.. 3rd set to Bomber – 130 checkout for Bomber with Petersen ready to pounce. Petersen breaks in set 4. 1-0 up, he’s got a zing to him now – running around the oche. Petersen holds, 2-0 up in set 4. Phew this game is closer than a close thing. Bomber gets a leg in this set… Mrs Bomber tells him to pull his finger out I think! Petersen takes it to a deciding set! 2-2 – great scrap. Bomber Brown breaks in the last set. 1-0 up. Bomber goes 2-0 up in the last set.. then hits 25 in the next leg, and his wife is caught on TV saying “what the feck” or similar! Petersen hits tops to make it 2-1 (to Bomber)… Brown now throwing to win the game. What a 80 c/o for Devon! 2-2 in the last set… Petersen throwing. Intense on stage now! WOW! Well done to both players for a real scrap – great last game. Devon wins 3-2 in a humdinger!

Certainly wide open now, could be one of those tournaments where luck plays a part and a player from nowhere gets to the final rather like Kirk Shepard 3 years ago.

Chisnel played well yesterday although he missed some big single numbers, went for 19 and hit 3, can't afford to do that at this level, also how many times has a player beat Taylor then gone out next round.

It is open for the likes of Wade and Anderson to step up and claim their place, Lewis has had a crap year really but could top it off by retaining his title.
