      i was watching the UK Open last night and the fans went crazy singing Rafa Rafael Rafa Rafael Rafa Rafael Rafael Benitez for ironically a yank. Gary Mawson, looks just like our boss. Along with that the competition was boss. Barney beating Taylor then Mawson beating Barney and then James Wade winning the event after bearing Mawson.

      James Wade is me fave darts player, mainly because he's a left handed dartsman like me, but also because he's not a cocky b***ard like Taylor.

      I've a mate who's in this competition, unfortunately he got beat (again) by Phil Taylor 9-3.

      He's called Wes Newton and I think ranked 16 in the world.

      is he the one who made a practice room in his garden shed tommo? I know the fellas name.

      I support Alan Tabbern as well (he got beat by Wade) because he's a left hander (like me and wade) and he's from St Helens. Nearest thing to a scouser we've got in the world of darts.

      Yes that's him mate.
      Basically, he's put one of those log cabins in his back garden and converted it into his 'darts den'.

      Well with any luck, he'll be making the later stages of the televised events sooner rather than later. Just tell him not to worry because Taylor can't go on forever.

      We've got a dart board up in our kitchen, great fun it is, especially when you've had a few.   :food-smiley-005:

      I love the way they know exactly what to go for and nearly always get it :D

      Peoples attitude to the POWER on hers is exactly why this country gets crapped on in most sports, its a pity a lot more of our so called stars didn,t have Taylors drive and commitment we might even stand a chance of winin something then.

      I've no problem with Taylor's dedication as he likes to call it (constantly) but it's his attitude I can't stand. Since the turn of the century he's been one of the most arrogant and self centred people in the sporting world.

      I love it when he and "one dart"Manley play each other, there's always tension there.

      I like to play darts. I'm totally rubbish at it. But it's a good laugh. Haven't got the patience to watch it though? Suppose it's something you've got to get into and have a favourite player?

      sort of ken but it's something you watch when you're bored out your skull mainly. It's the most repetitive sport in the world. It's good when you're there live, couple of drinks, group of mates having a laugh and that but watching it in the front room can get tedious after twenty minutes for most, fortunately I like it. Probably because I follow all the televised events and see how the players are performing on a regular basis. If you just try and pick it up half way through then it can get boring.

      One of my mates is bang into it. Always trying to get us to go to the darts. But I've got to be really into something to go watch it live.

      I know exactly what you mean when you say tedious mate.  ;)

      World Matchplay starts this Sunday in Blackpool, I'm hopin to get to a few of the games. Hopefully Wade the defendin champ and St Helens' Alan Tabbern will do well, both left handed dartsmen.

      first round draw looks like this: Ronnie Baxter v Andy Smith; Kevin Painter v Tony Eccles; Colin Lloyd v Mark Walsh; James Wade v Wayne Jones; Terry Jenkins v Alex Roy; Peter Manley v Denis Ovens; Wayne Mardle v Mark Dudbridge; Colin Osborne v Mervyn King; Raymond van Barneveld v Mark Frost; Dennis Priestley v Adrian Gray; Alan Tabern v Vincent van der Voort; Andy Hamilton v Michael van Gerwen; John Part v Chris Mason; Phil Taylor v Steve Beaton; Roland Scholten v Matt Clark; Adrian Lewis v Kevin McDine.

      Some big matches, my pick for the top three matches would be Osborne v King, Tabern v Van Der Voort and Part v Mason. Couple of other good uns in Wade/Jones, Jenkins/Roy, Hamilton/Van Gerwen and Mardle/Dudbridge.

      I'm goin for Adrian Lewis to win it this year. Too easy to pick Taylor or Barney or even Wade for that matter, so I'll go for a Jackpot.

      I love that stand-off as well DLS, and I agree with you about Phil Taylors arrogance of late as well. Adrian Lewis looked awesome last time I saw him on TV.  Lets hope he's in form again this weekend    ;D

      hasn't even got Wade on the pic. What the f**k Ronnie Baxter (green top front row) is on there for I don't know. Is it an old pic cos Taylor looks dead young on there.

      semi finals are

      Wade v Mardel

      Taylor v Priestley.

      I hope Wade and Priestley go through with Wade winnin the title again. Taylor and Mardel are just to cocky for their own good.

      Taylor won the world matchplay tonight by beatin Wade 18-9. Taylor was head and shoulders above anyone else in the tournament though, looked back to his best.
