    Tis a pity, as when in form, I reckon he is a joy to watch.

    Lewis hasnt been in form for a longggg time.....
    Wade lewis are on the slide bigtime.might be so called big names,but not bigtime players at the deep of big tournaments anymore and havent been in a long time.and i could include gary anderson in that also hes not done a lot since hes back 2 back world championship success.the have the money made and thats it.
    Thats where taylor is different he dominated repeatly for 20 odd years and more and can still beat the so called top 4 today.

    Yes, Lewis, maybe not throwing well but am just stating , if would get his act together, his talent is unreal

    Looks like they're more interested in throwing punches than darts.

    Be plenty of weight behind it anyway!

    Thought Price let himself down badly yesterday. There's over-celebrating and then there's what he did: aggressively yelling into his opponent's face.

    Hope Anderson destroys him today.

    Anderson most likely will. He was unstoppable against Dobey yesterday.

    Price calls himself the ice man but he is visibly shítting himself at times.
    His game was affected by his own behaviour yesterday and he looked a bit of a prat. If Cadby had ignored him and kept his head a bit more he'd have won. Price is another who will make a good living but who will never be a real contender for any titles worth mentioning.

    MvG v Anderson should be a very good final.
    Gurney continues to establish himself as top player.

    including anderson in that group is very harsh
    hes still winning tournaments or going deep in them
    he doesnt enter every competition and clearly sets himself up to peak for world championship
    hes not a yound man either with 2 young kids
    he has nothing left to prove

    the other 2 have done nothing in years and now are struggling to get into events

    Anderson wont hit the heights or peak like he done when he won back 2 back worlds.so for that reason he wont be winning much in the way of majors again.as the final last nite proved.
    Hes money is made and getting runs to quarters Nd semis will ensure money in the bank.

    I was referring to the size of the trophies not the importance...!
    The runners up one is hardly big enough to be a paper weight.

    Cadby won't be at this year's world's, Josh payne just knocked him out of the world youth championship semi finals. Payne v Van den bergh in final

    I think he's got a couple of outside shots still, at least one.
    He's in the Grand Slam next week and a win in that (£110K) would see him ranked high enough, the £55K for second might be enough also.
    And theres a PDPA qualifier for the Worlds in late November which has two places but a massive field (not sure if he is eligible or even intends competing if eligible).


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,370 ✭✭✭✭ArmaniJeanss


    Theres a Grand Slam qualifier on this afternoon & evening, 80 odd players chasing 8 places.
    Adrian Lewis, VvdV, Alan Norris, Kyle Anderson, Klassen, Cristo Reyes, HuybrechtsX2 amongst the big names taking part.
    https://www.pdc.tv/node/7271
    Not sure if any coverage anywhere.

    He can't qualify now no matter what he does at the slam, he had 3 chances and didn't qualify. He's not a tour card holder or a member of pdpa so is ineligible


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,370 ✭✭✭✭ArmaniJeanss


    No GSOD for Adrian, between 5-3 by Simon Stevenson in his L64 game.

    Lewis will be ranked 20th in world in January, finally his ranking matching his form. He can't possibly be in premier league this year, along with Wade


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


    Steve Lennon beats Joe Cullen to qualify for the Grand Slam. What a year for Steve who came through q school in January

    Great news

    Both need a at least a semi final place to get premier league.
    Not a hope for Lewis but wade has a nack for winning matches he should lose


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,370 ✭✭✭✭ArmaniJeanss


    I think Lewis will be ok for the Premier League because he hasn't needed a wild card before, always been a Top4 qualifier (since 2011). Giving him a wild card this one time would thus be fair when other players have got wild cards multiple times.

    What should also help him is that there will already be plenty of changes from last years 10 players. Taylor gone, Klaasen and Huybrechts surely both out, Wade also a question mark. I can't see them wanting to make 5 changes to the line-up so I think Lewis will get in.

    Lewis and wade should be left out of the premier lge.why because the havent achieved or hit the heights in the last few years lewus especially.if one was to miss out it would be lewis.the man has let himself go bigtime,hes even sweating in warm up throws befire the 1st leg of a match.

    Lots of contenders to the premier lge mensur gurney maybe price if he finishes the year good.
