That Van Gerwen though eh

Helluva player, and probably best in the world currently, but his tempo may not lend itself to winning the World's and the stop start nature of multiple sets

Hankey's had a stroke, who'd have thought the diet and lifestyle of a darts player would lend itself to such a thing??

Really enjoyed that tournament, great final with 2 decent chaps and a lot of high checkouts.
Disheartening to learn that even a professional darts player in the midst of a stroke is still a lot better than me.

It's Ted Hankey, when has he not looked terrible? Like, really unhealthy, not ugly.

It was linked to from the Guardian's site, with a nudge-nudge, let's all have a laugh at the pissed darts player, caption.

More crucially, can Taylor beat RVB? This is getting interesting.

nb I'm watching on a 'live' stream, so it could have ended an hour ago. Humour me.

Taylor proving again what a cunt he is at the end of that match. Hope MVG destroys him in the final.

The lewis van gerwin match was amazing, as was his near back to back 9 darter. Really hope he beats Taylor. What was the aggro about at the end if his match with Barney?

Barney's been talking himself up throughout this tournament, probably on the advice of that slimey manager bloke who follows him around.

It's been unlike him and a bit unpleasant really, but I can see why someone who's struggled with the mental side of the game would suddenly take to talking himself up to try and get a performance out of himself. I think he reached the limit last night of what talking a good game can do whilst Taylor is still in the tournament, he's still simply too good for most players, even though he struggled over the line really.

It will be an interesting final though, plenty of players have looked as good as MVG on the route to a final against Taylor and then not shown up, but MVG seems to have a completely different mental strength to other players.

His pace of play, which I think is a hindrance to other Dutch players like VVDV and the rapey bloke, is slightly slower and more stable, and so I think leads to more solid performances.

He can't hit doubles for shit at the moment though, so who knows. I think Taylor will win.

I think it was just a misunderstanding between them at the end of last nights match, but every now and then you get a glimpse of the real Taylor like that, and it's not pretty.

There are some pretty unpleasant people in the PDC, James Wade seems like a real fucking prick.

That's why it's easy to root for MVG in the final, seems like a real nice chap.

I've met both Taylor and Barney.
One of them was a great bloke and the other was a total prick.

I won't say which is which, but let's just say that I'll be rooting for van Gerwin in the final...

First set to Van Gerwen. Both players are looking great, scoring and finishing well. If it carries on like this it will be an amazing match.

Game on now. Level when vG should have been 3-1 up. Taylor's raised his game massively. I'm still tipping the old man.

Van Gerwen seems to have massively improved his doubles, but his 180ing just isn't there tonight.
If he keeps plodding along like this though I think/hope he'll win.

Looks like it, but you never know... If Van Gerwen can start pulling out the 180s like he did against Wade there's no reason why he can't take it to the deciding set - he needs to do it now, though.

Hate to say it, but Taylor looks like he's gonna win now.

I hope he tries to act with a shred of dignity if he does win.

Fucker. At least he didn't stick the nut on MVG.

Bugger.
I was hoping for MVG to win 7-0 and celebrate right in Taylor's fat face.

i honestly thought that was a wind up when i saw it

not only does he have the most astonishing speech impediment, but he can't add up

are there some other, not so obvious, darts scorer job requirements that maybe we're missing?

Just watched yesterday's highlights. The quality difference between the two competitions broadens to increasingly humorous levels every year. This is like the Paralympics without the disabilities.

Captain of England Martin Adams is already out as is defending champion Kist, Bunting and O'Shea should go close but Waites really should win it this year.
