    I think Barry’s progress has stalled, in fact he’s regressed as far as I can see over the last 12 months.


    For me the way his darts land is a liability

    Barry was let off the hook in the 2nd, but I assume will easily kick on to win now.

    Not an impressive showing though (stating the obvious, I know)

    Hard to see the winner of this troubling MVG in the next round.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,700 ✭✭✭MileHighGuy


    Just regarding Rivera's pace, I'm used to seeing players slow in the throw, but so slow to get on the oche and fetch the darts..... I don't recall anyone dallying so much. I see Russ Bray has looked over his shoulder a couple of times wondering where he is.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,700 ✭✭✭MileHighGuy


    Has Barry just conceded this set to get the darts in the next? He's second best by a long way here.

    .... He had the darts in this set.... Wow

    In fairness, Rivera could be winning this if his doubles were better. This is far from over.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,700 ✭✭✭MileHighGuy


    Barry really does miss a lot of doubles, and by some margin.... Rarely on the wire.

    If he gets through I couldn't even see him winning a leg against mvg.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,700 ✭✭✭MileHighGuy


    Made a meal of it, but a nice checkout to win. Will be great to see him play MVG.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,700 ✭✭✭Dillonb3


    Good win in the end for Barry. The faster pace against MVG will suit him

    That's right up there with the least enjoyable games in the history of Ally Pally.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,621 ✭✭✭ThebitterLemon


    That Scott Willams really gets on my t1ts!

    Whitlock's game has completely fallen apart.

    Could be the last we witness him at Ally Pally.



  • Registered Users Posts: 39,494 ✭✭✭✭KevIRL


    for someone like him not to be in the top 64 of the Pro Tour OoM and fail to qualify for the Players Championship finals is a disaster.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,403 ✭✭✭shockframe


    The 65-96 qualifier field seems very mediocre so far.

    Would have expected it to be much stronger in its 6th worlds.



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,278 ✭✭✭✭ArmaniJeanss


    I'd say it's the international element of the qualification that causes it. Which is a worthy idea obviously and not something they are going to change - but I'd suspect there are many North of England players more capable than some of these lads who won qualifiers in the India, The Caribbean etc.

    Queen Fallon Sherrock on tonight, sky probably creaming themselves



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,487 ✭✭✭TheChrisD


    Yes, but then you can hardly call it a world championship if you get rid of the world representation.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,403 ✭✭✭shockframe


    Illagan always looks awkward with the sleeves rolled up.

    Should get some Aussie Rules shirt and be done with it.

    I love watching Ilagan, he's always entertaining. Great fight back



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,700 ✭✭✭Dillonb3


    Campbell more than capable of giving Wade a game



  • Registered Users Posts: 37,702 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Could be wrong but think Dylan Slevin was only playing pub darts only a year or so ago

    Some going for a young lad and hope he plays well tonight



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,535 ✭✭✭PsychoPete


    Mardle talking about "composure stats", some man to talk complete sh!te



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,978 ✭✭✭✭retalivity


    Slevin throwing some good darts here



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,759 ✭✭✭✭ctrl-alt-delete


    Had a dart for a two set lead, all square now.



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,978 ✭✭✭✭retalivity




  • Registered Users Posts: 21,096 ✭✭✭✭Mushy


    This set would be even better if was for the match, poor to lose last set

    Then dragged back to lose the set



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,403 ✭✭✭shockframe


    Slevin didn't impress me watching him this year but he's actually played alright here.

    Just unfortunate to play someone who normally does well at Ally Pally.

    Disappointing in the end. He had his chances to win but missed some crucial doubles. The experience will definitely stand to him going forward.
