Heh yea was insane the way he just stepped up at the business end of legs.
Do wish they'd shut up about how hot it is and the physical demands.
Yes I'm sure it's hot with the lights, been and done that with Countdown. But they're playing darts, they're not that quick and there's a few minutes break every 15 minutes.
Underwhelming final, close but pretty poor quality. Last leg summed it up really.
Still don't think many people like King so a popular win.
Reckon that it's time to give this thread a bit of a bumping from the doldrums of Page 4. Is anyone else watching the Matchplay final at the moment? It's bucking the trend of recent Taylor vs Van Barneveld matches in that A) It's been very close and exciting and B)Barney hasn't sulked or thrown in the metaphorical towel at any point. Been a terrific match, the standard of finishing in particular has been astoundingly good. Although I am having to listen to it on silent owing to the Taylor-worshipping twaddle that Sid Waddell spouts leg after leg.

The twice world champion & 80s legend passes away at sixty-two. As one understands he hadn't been well for a number of years. Was massive (literally and metaphorically) in his heyday.

The unquestioned voice of darts, writer of Jossie's Giants, polymath and all round good bloke loses his fight with bowel cancer at 72.
Very, very sad loss. Had an amazing facility with language and seamlessly blended high culture with popular.
Thought this thread was going to be about f00lers love of these:

Nice game from the wizard. Will need to lift in the quarters.
So Phil Taylor just got knocked out in the 2nd Round by someone 30 years younger than him.
He was paying something like $1.02 to boot.
Bet Barney's odds have shortened a tad after The Power's exit.
Kid who beat him is the world junior champ or something, so my paper said this morning, so his #32 world ranking probably belies his darting abilities.
I enjoyed how the commentators of the second semi-final continually said that Lewis had played a really good game, despite the fact that he was thrashed 6-0.
How did Whitlock go in the semi?
Looked like his bottle went. Scoreline maybe flattered Wright, but Whitlock had plenty of chances to get back into the game and blew most of them.
