    fair play to gurney and i hope he wins it but re really does lose it when he wins . Thornton wanted to smash something over his head, didn't look like they shook hands at the end

    Gurney is turning into a clown.. This whole looking at the dartboard for 2/3 before taking his darts out is a joke.. He's turning into the player you love to hate very quickly

    He has a bit of that about him but darts needs a few characters.

    Oh of course it does but it just annoys me so much.. And the fact he's suddenly "Irish" this week too when he's passed himself as English at lakeside a few years ago

    To be fair if you leave out the "turning into" bits it's a much more accurate assessment of him.

    Being a bit of a dickhead against Thornton is pretty much a positive in my book, and he did counter it by showing due respect to Henderson in the semi-final. Has clearly worked hard at his game after appearing to be stuck in the 17-32 ranking bracket for years.
    Great walk-on as well. Will be cheering him on tonight.

    The PDC Twitter page then says it's Britain against Australia. Make up yer minds lads.

    His Facebook has him from Londonderry ,that's his own personal account,so he's no southie,but he's not claiming to be,it's sky doing that,he's northern Irish,simple as that.

    Hope it's a exciting final regardless who wins

    Willie O Connor in to the last 8 of today's players championship. A great run, beating some good players


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,464 ✭✭✭Ultimate Seduction


    Willie just beat Peter Wright 6-2 . In the semis now. Brilliant

    Well considering Northern Ireland is in neither Britain or Australia I'm going to go out on a limb and say whoever wrote the tweet hasn't the first clue what they are talking about!

    Personally I couldn't give a hoot what country he is from, whether he considers himself Irish or British or whether he is catholic or protestant, because at the end of the day he is simply a prat!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,464 ✭✭✭Ultimate Seduction


    Couldn't care less myself, just found it odd they kept referring to him as the hometown lad ect, Daryls a unionist and certainly would not like to be labled Irish.

    Rob Cross put a stop to Willie's run today, and ended up beating Lewis in final. 3 tournament wins now for cross in his debut year, number 32 in the world now.

    Is there any way to view this comp? I subscribed last month to the PDC website but finding the 'content not available in your country' a bit nonsense. Couldn't even view the Dublin Grand Prix which beggers why I even subscribed.

    I usually watched archived catch up's via Youtube channels, DartsFab, Sportixer etc but it appears Sky have hammered down and put to an end to it as of last month, very disappointing.

    You should definitely be able to watch today, and tomorrow's darts if you have an active subscription.

    Anything that's on tv here and in the UK will be geo blocked on the website.

    Betting sites show it too but I think you have to place a bet on the event, not sure.

    He isn't even playing in the German leg of the world series, the great max Hopp got the invite instead! Pdc don't like mensur, Not marketable.

    He's in the German leg of the World Series after all, not sure who got bumped.
    Starts on Friday night on ITV4, continues over the weekend.
