Certainly matches like last nights give people who think Durrant is top 5 in the World plenty to consider. It may be that if he switches the continual exposure to both high pressure matches against class opponents and TV tournaments lead him to improve under pressure. Equally he might do nowhere near as well as some think.


Didn’t Duzza win last night?? Anyone would think he bottled it and lost reading that...
He said himself in the interview he was a beaten man at 3-3. Don't you honestly think that 9 times of 10 anyone in the PDC top 16 would have won that final set? I really really want Duzza to do well in the PDC, I like him a lot, and I think he will, but, its worrying that he frequently shows signs that under pressure he finds it hard to maintain his game, especially against faster players. He does often find a way to win but in the case of last night it was more Baker than him that meant he won that last set.

Baker threw some pretty good darts in the 4th and 5th set.
I think the only wobble from Glen was in the 6th set. When you saw he was visibly having a wobble too.
The deciding set he showed exactly what you come to expect from him and took the set easily.


Correct!

No different to Hendo or Gilding but I get your point in how could it be Vajazzled by Sky?

I think so yes, especially after the interview, he said himself he was beaten.

If you said "top 10" I think you would probably have it spot on. Plenty of flaky names between 11-16.

Who said Duzza is a top 5 player? I've never heard anyone who's even suggested that (maybe some uber-shroom has, but we can ignore them). As for his bottle, I'm with Ginge, there are a lot of players near the top of the PDC who have their wobbles under pressure so I don't think Duzza is particularly out of place in that regard

Q school is a joke. Deliberately put on the same weekend as the Inter Counties to disrupt the bedrock of the BDO system. All our lads should boycott it and show some loyalty to the system that made them what they are. The PDC is a business built on sand, where will all these players go when it all comes crashing down and Hearn rides off into the sunset to find his next cash cow? They will come crawling back to the BDO with their tales between their legs, well I for one would Slam the door shut on them!

Ian White and Joe Cullen are both in the top 16 of the PDC.
