am I the only one last night missing Taylor? I just couldn't get thrilled by the match or is it because of the far better (Taylor involved) matches we've been priviliged to watch prior to the final?

I know I'm in the lion's pit as to Taylor here, as ironically a lot of you seem to like his absence for a welcome change, but didn't any of you miss Taylor too last night?


Although it was healthy to see a non-Taylor final it definitely lacked some highlights.
We are spoiled. :hiding:

There weren't any highlights when Taylor beat Waites 18-4 at the Grand Slam or Terry J 18-4 at the Matchplay last year. Agree with above poster, I'd be happy to never see Taylor throw another dart.

That's a strange thing for a dart fan to say, so you would not want to witness the greatest player ever, throwing at the highest standard ever?

Taylor 16-2 Waites
It wasnt competitive but a 10darter (8perfect) and a 170finish qualify as highlight.
105co from Waites was also nice. Taylor just missed another 170...

Taylor 18-4 Jenks
Taylor had another 10darter
144co, 121co etc.....total of 5 +100finishes
+106 average

The old topic - masterclass vs competitive match.

Btw - I like both!

Actually I was not talking about Taylor. Ade and Wade are also capable of fireworks.
Maybe next time.

Just go through his UK Open run where every match of his was on the telly:
Mardle 9-2. An hour of my life wasted.
Painter 9-0. An hour of my life wasted.
Adrian Lewis 10-2, Gary Anderson 11-5, you get the picture.

These uncompetitive matches arent highlights, they might as well do the walk-ons, shake hands then give Taylor the match.

10 darters, 100+ checks, 100+ averages, I get all those in my Super League matches :IIII:

Where's the Mason-Adams, the Bristow-Wilson's etc? Obv Gary on Friday and Adie on Saturday proved they could. Whats the betting they're both in the pocket next time aginst Taylor? We all know close matches like that aint gonna happen again (well for another couple of years), dont kid yourselves that its a new dawn.

Then maybe you should just watch your Super League. I am sure you will see quite some competitive matches there. :WWWW:

Mason vs Adams, Bristow vs Wilson???
Not getting this reference. We have just seen 4-5 nailbitters. Happens all the time.

Even with Taylor in it.
Player Champs: Taylor vs Lloyd, Taylor vs Nicholson
Euros: Taylor vs Jenkins
WGP: Taylor vs Anderson, Taylor vs Lewis

Well quite obvious is it from these fine stats of Sly's that Barney, Wade, Harrington, Part, Priestley and Lloyd are all multiple major winners, but only Barney, Part and the Menace knocked out Taylor.
The rest beat (an)other great player(s) put in front of them of course. ;)
