Need Kim to at least win another set as got a bet on there being over 5.5 sets in both this match and the MVG v Webster one!

4-2. That'll do. Keeps the bet alive.

Fancy Webster to give MVG a good game.

The standard is at an all-time high, these big guns are just too good when it comes down to it. 6 of the top 8 seeds in the QF's plus Barney (who is a huge name anyway). If Lewis had avoided Barney he'd be in there too. I would love to see an MvG v Anderson final here.

Scary that mid 90 averages just don't cut it anymore. That would have got you close to a major 10 years ago.

100.00 averages will likely only get you so far as well.

100 is still a great average and is generally Wade/Wright territory I would say. 105-ish is needed these days to compete with MvG and Anderson.

I love darts more than pretty much all other sports, but my god you wouldn't get me there watching it live. The same four chants on repeat for 3-4 hours, and half the crowd spending most of the night looking in the other direction. How many of them there today had even heard of Daryl Gurney, Ian White and Darren Webster :mell:

And let's be reyt as soon as people up there game and play to 105 mvg and Gary just get better. Same as Phil Taylor did for years and years

MvG has started okay, wins the first set with checkouts of 101, 170 and 92. The dart for the 170 finish was in the exact centre of the bullseye.

Sign the board, Phil. :lol:

Odious little cretin.

Don't mind who wins it now. MVG deserves it after his amazing year, Barney has had a crazy tough draw in this and will fully deserve it if he wins, Peter Wright has been ridiculously consistent the last 2-3 years, and I'm a big Anderson fan anyway :cool:

I respect his ability as a darts player.

The man is a tool of the highest order though.

So is every other fucking darts player. Only Anderson who seems decent

Taylor just reeks of arrogance, think he's an arse but what a player.

Amazing first couple of sets between Barney and MvG. Barney taking out 100+ finishes for fun but MvG hanging in there.

114 average in a world championship SF against a top player like Barney, absolutely unbelievable that is.

Against anyone else in the final you'd say he's unbeatable but I think he'll need another great performance to beat Anderson. Anderson will match him all the way for scoring and MvG's pace will suit him better than playing Wright today.

A 109 losing average over 8 sets is crazy.

Insane. How on earth can anyone be that good? He is surely better than even Taylor in his pomp?

Feel sorry for Barney, play that well and still get tonked 6-2, you just can't compete against it. Fair play to MVG, though, he's faced at least two players who have had the game of their lives against him in this tournament and he's come through them better each time.

The final tomorrow is going to be an absolute cracker for a tournament that has seen a standard this year that has blown previous years' out the water.
