Not surprised Anderson was beaten in the semi final so convincingly. He hadnít a great competition. Didnít really get going to the extent that we know he can. Hasnít recovered from Gerwyn price who beat him in the Grand Slam by getting into his head. He also embarrassed himself by his vulgar comment in the semi final of that competition whit talk about farting. Not sad to see him go, although I like him. James Wade another huge disappointment with his behaviour on the oche and his inane ramblings off it. The ten players picked for the Premier League will be very interesting tonight. My guess is MVG, Anderson, Wright, Gurney, Wade, Smith, Lewis, Suljovic, Cross, Chisnall.  No place for Barney. He has been treading water for the past three years and looks bored. he gives the impression he doesnít want to be there. SO he shouldnít.

Not sure Lewis or Chizzy will make the premier league.

Barney hasnít done enough to warrant selection but sentimentality will see him get a spot and I think Price will also get in. He is the pantomime villain but darts needs such characters that create a bit of needle.

It's a bit of a we'll pick who we like selection process IIRC from last year, apart from the Top 6 who are guaranteed a spot. Was it Top 6, Sky pick 2 and Barry Hearn picked 2???

Barney is retiring at the end of 2019, he's outside the Top 10, playing awful, he might get very lucky and get a wildcard pick. Wade &  Lewis have lost their cache.

I'd be surprised if they didn't pick Barney, he's box office especially in a fairwell tour..

Michael Smith to give MVG a game tonight I reckon..

7-4 or 7-5

Once you get past MvG, Anderson and Wright, itís open for anyone. Smith is a cert based on this year and Cross on last year.

That leaves 5 places, with ticket sales overruling form wherever possible.

Barney and Price are certs. Other 3 could be any of 10.

Depends on how he handles the occasion. If he repeats his semi final form and MVG is slightly below par we could be in for a classic that could go either way. If he doesnít then I can only see an easy victory for MVG.

Flat. Crowd quiet. If Smith wins from here it will be a miracle.

I half suspected that Smith might struggle with the occasion, he is normally a heavy scorer but simply didnít play anywhere near his best which he needed to in order to stand any chance. MVG was below par also and he seems to get a very hostile crowd reception at the Ally Pslly every year for such a great player. Fair play to Smith for calling out the booing in his opponents darts.

I think itís a touch of crowd Xenophobia, heís had it the last few years and doesnít produce his best at this tournament.

BDO starts Saturday, even the BBC have given up on it, live on Quest and Eurosport. No Wolfie in the draw has he retired?

Lovely. BBC Scotland have some great programmes tucked away out of sight. There's a great Jock Stein bio - think it was on BBC ALBA
