    Christmas is definitely on the way because the darts is back :D

    I really don't fancy MVG this year. I fancy a bit of an upset, an unfancied name to shock. Anderson looks at his best but if his cage gets rattled then he's beatable.

    I'll be having a few quid on:

    Gurney @ 40/1
    Van den Bergh @ 80/1
    Ratajski @ 200/1
    D. Webster @ 250/1

    Ratajski's risen through the ranks fast and has beaten MVG this year.

    Does this mean men can now enter women's tournaments?

    I wonder how long it'll be before a transgender polyamorous bisexual non-binary person that identifies as a kumquat enters.

    I don't have a problem with women entering tbh. She played well. Problem is the standard of womens darts is still so poor, the top women would still struggle to beat a top 100 male player on a good day.

    This Mansell vs Long is worse than watching darts down the local!

    Came here just to post the same. This is utterly atrocious. Mansell's hit a single 1 21 times now.

    Not sure why Mansell is STILL a 1/3 favourite to win? He's utter dross.

    Why am I still watching this? Seriously, when I'm playing well I'd beat either of these 2 at this standard.

    Thank god, my eyes have stopped bleeding now that's over.

    What a cretin whoever chucked beer at Michael Van Gerwen.

    Hope he gets banged up for the night.

    This Josh Payne fella isn't half bad. 109.9 average currently and hasn't dropped a leg against Chisnall in leading 2 sets to 0.

    Great comeback from Chizzy.

    Payne will be in a world of pain after losing this.

    Hasn’t been playing well for months. Not a massive surprise.

    True, was seeded three though, would have expected him to get through this round.

    That's Barney out as well. Labanauskas didn't lose a leg on his throw but scraped through 3-2.

    Jesus, Wade’s interview. “He wanted to hurt him in his face for his son and his country, and his 10 week old son text him to say don’t lose,”

    WTAF, bloke has always been a sandwich short of a picnic.

    He’s apologised. Reckons he was suffering from hypomania, which is a feature of his bipolar disorder. Wonder if he forgot his meds?

    Should he be handling darts if in that state? Also, impressed a 10 week old baby can text, and understand the concept of winning and losing. :)
