    I'm the same, I don't play often because my maths is crap, I used to have a board in the house when I was a kid though, I just watch it mostly now...its a great sport to watch and it IS a sport, I don't care what anyone else says..

    Here are the Premier League matches for round five (round five already!!) in Exeter..

    Wright v Thornton
    Van Barneveld v Chisnall
    Lewis v Van Gerwen
    Taylor v Anderson
    Newton v Whitlock

    Matches probably not in that order, Lewis v MVG is going to be brilliant!

    Wes Newton will not play tonight due to being ill. Thornton will play two matches.

    Results from last night..

    Wright 6-6 Thornton
    Van Barneveld 6-6 Chisnall
    Lewis 6-6 Van Gerwen
    Taylor 5-7 Anderson
    Whitlock 7-5 Thornton

    Three draws to in the first three games, the pick of which was Lewis-MVG which started slowly but built momentum and turned out to be a great match...Taylor loses again, he missed to many doubles and is under serious pressure after Whitlock picked up his first win...disappointing night for Thornton who only managed to pick up one point from his two games...

    ...Also there is Darts on tonight as well, The UK Open in on ITV4..

    Lewis wiped the floor with Jenkins then. 9 legs in a row after Jenkins put in a great performance to beat MVG. Seems like a great tournament to go to, at a caravan park haha! I'd go to the premier league in Brum if it wasn't during my exam time. :(

    Really enjoyed it over the weekend, fantastic Darts...felt sorry for Jenkins but Lewis looked like a man on a mission all through the tournament, But Jenkins can be very happy with his semi final performance though!

    Whitlock v Wright
    Lewis v Anderson
    Van Gerwen v Newton
    Van Barneveld v Thornton

    Here are the matches for tonight's Premier League from Leeds..

    Chisnall v Whitlock
    Thornton v Lewis
    Anderson v Van Gerwen
    Newton v Taylor
    Wright v Van Barneveld

    Matches probably not in that order but I do know that Wright v RVB will be on last, Chisnall v Whitlock is a massive game at the bottom with the elimination taking place in just three games time, and there is 11,000 expected in Leeds which will be the highest attendance at a PDC event ever!

    Yeah definitely it is, I think Taylor will win against Newton tonight, and probably Chisnall v Whitlock a possible draw.

    Tonight's results...

    Chisnall 6-6 Whitlock
    Thornton 6-6 Lewis
    Anderson 5-7 Van Gerwen
    Newton 1-7 Taylor
    Wright 6-6 Van Barneveld

    You were right about those two results Fuzzy!

    Taylor had easily his best performance this season so far to climb up to 6th in the league, the bottom two is now Newton and Whitlock (Newton has a game more to play), Wright is still unbeaten but has been knocked off the top by new leader MVG

    Next week is Taylor v Barney and Wright v MVG!

    So what's happening with Newton, he has a game in hand so how do they go about that?

    I can only assume that they give Thornton a night off and give get to Newton to play twice, but they have to do that soon as they are both threatened with elimination..

    Thought so, Thornton will be watching the action nervously and its his own fault, when he played those two games he only picked up one point out of four....great chance for Newton..

    Love it when there is abit of needle up on that stage between two players. Clearly there is abit of needle there between MVG and Wright.

    Last night results..

    Anderson 7-3 Newton
    Lewis 6-6 Chisnall
    Newton 6-6 Whitlock
    Van Gerwen 7-5 Wright
    Taylor 6-6 Van Barneveld

    Whitlock is eliminated, Newton only picked up one point of a possible four, Lewis produced another comeback this time from 6-2 down to draw, Wright was winding MVG up, it didn't really work though as he ended up losing his first match but MVG wasn't happy afterwards but Wright said he didn't give a monkeys and he'll do it again.

    So big night of darts tomorrow night with the other elimination taking place after the round of matches, there are three players in danger...Thornton, Newton and Chisnall and here are the matches in Cardiff

    Anderson v Wright
    Van Gerwen v Whitlock
    Lewis v Van Barneveld
    Newton v Chisnall
    Taylor v Thornton

    Here are the scenarios
    Thornton (on 6pts -1 leg difference)
    is safe with a win or draw
    would be safe if Chisnall wins by any score or if Newton win by 7-3 or better

    Chisnall (on 6pts -13 leg difference)
    is safe with a win or draw
    if he loses 7-5 he would need Thornton to lose 7-0 to have better leg difference, other results could mean legs won against throw come into play

    Newton (6pts -13 leg difference)
    is safe with a win or draw
    If he draws he needs Thornton to lose to survive, if he loses he is out..

    Anderson 5-7 Wright
    Van Gerwen 6-6 Whitlock
    Lewis 6-6 Van Barneveld
    Newton 5-7 Chisnall
    Taylor 7-3 Thornton

    Newton goes out after a narrow loss to Chisnall, Whitlock went out with a bang, Taylor is definitely nearing his best..

    ....Race for the play-offs start now!

    Results from last night..

    Chisnall 5-7 Van Barneveld
    Wright 4-7 Anderson
    Van Gerwen 7-5 Thornton
    Taylor 7-4 Lewis
    Van Barneveld 7-5 Wright

    All very close games, Wright lost both games, Thornton was one dart away from a nine-darter!, I think Taylor is back to his best now and MVG says top but he has to play Taylor AND Lewis next week!
