    Nearly got a nine darter last night. ;)

    Massive blow for Wright losing both matches, and Taylor slowly but surely getting back to his best. :tup:

    Great effort by Thornton!

    Taylor is now in the playoff positions and Wright has hit some poor from lately, three out of the last four lost..

    Results form last night

    Anderson 7-4 Lewis
    Van Gerwen 4-7 Taylor
    Wright 4-7 Chisnall
    Thornton 1-7 Van Barneveld
    Van Gerwen 7-4 Lewis

    Lewis had a shocker last night! Don't think Thornton can make Playoffs now..

    Managed to watch last weeks action today, after recording it.

    Thornton is definitely done, it's getting real tight for the top four now. Seems like MVG and Barney have got a little breathing space, so I expect them two to go through to play offs. And it's going to be a real battle for the final two places that's for sure.

    Here are tomorrow nights matches for week 12 in Manchester and Anderson and Thornton are on double duty..

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

    I think all of those matches are big in terms of the playoffs but I think Anderson v Taylor and Barney v Lewis are crucial...

    Results from last night

    Thornton 5-7 Wright
    Anderson 6-6 Taylor
    Van Barneveld 7-3 Lewis
    Van Gerwen 7-4 Chisnall
    Anderson 6-6 Thornton

    Van Gerwen and Van Barneveld are both assured of Playoff places, the last two places are between Wright, Taylor and Anderson, Thornton now definitely cant get a playoff place...

    Two more weeks of league action then the playoffs at The 02

    What happening to Lewis?, he has been playing rubbish lately and I think he looks a bit tired....

    He does, I think he's not going to make it. They mentioned there yesterday during commentary, how many times he's been in the premier league, can't remember think it was 7 or 8 times, and only got to play offs twice.

    You would think this sort of format would suit him, but then again it's shows how competitive the premier league is each and every year.

    I don't think its this tournament though, he has struggled throughout his career, I know that sounds stupid because he is a two time World Champion and he always seems to be in the top five in the World but apart from those two titles the only other majors he has won is this years UK Open and last years European Matchplay and that's it, you would expect a player of his talent and calibre to have won a lot more than that....

    Pretty fair assessment to be honest, I'd say he has got time on his side though, so will be an interesting story over the next few years or so to see if he can win the big ones. :tup:

    Final two play off spots down to three with a chance, Taylor, Wright and Anderson.

    Wright has got to play both Taylor and MVG, good luck with that. :lol:

    Well there's still a lot to play for in the last night of league action before Finals night next week, the final two playoff places to be decided with Anderson, Taylor and Wright in contention, here are the games from Brighton tomorrow night

    Chsinall v Lewis
    Anderson v Van Barneveld
    Thornton v Taylor
    Wright v Van Gerwen

    both Anderson and Taylor are on 18 points and will qualify with wins, Wright is on 17 and needs to win and Anderson or Taylor to draw or lose, Wright v MVG should be great after what happened last time they met!

    Great night last night, here are the results

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

    Anderson was very impressive last night and Taylor was made to work hard by Thornton who looked up for the fight, Anderson and Taylor winning meant that Wright couldn't qualify for the playoffs ahead of his match with MVG but it was still a great match

    Top four finished like this, MVG, Barney, Taylor, Anderson and it'll be Van Gerwen v Anderson and Taylor v Van Barneveld in the semi-finals at the 02 next week, should be fantastic! :tup:

    Going to be a bit weird not watching darts on Thursday night, but it was a great night and I don't think many people expected him to win...

    ....next darts is the World Cup from June 6th on Sky..

    Why would they, he'd lost 6 premier league semi finals and never beaten Taylor in the premier league and before it all began he probably only got in because of who he is. Credit it to RVB though he has really up'd his game again this year and was a deserving winner.

    Only the top four in the world rankings before the tournament get automatic Premier League places, the rest are Wildcard picks, the top four this time around were MVG, Taylor, Whitlock and Lewis...in that order..
