Other shrooms complaining MVG wins too much.( disregarding their own bdo player Durrant who won lakeside, masters, finder, catastrophy etc)

Seems to me shrooms want to moan regardless and are moaning when he loses and moaning when he wins, and I am not even an MVG fan

Hes not that great because he cant handle pressure well -He often bottles it at major events -

How would you call Taylor's defeats to West, Van der Voort (WGP), Klaasen, Webster, Smith (Worlds), Aden Kirk (UK Open) then? Or defeats to MVG when Phil was leading by a few legs (Masters, Matchplay Grand Slam)? Losing a few teams doesn't mean you bottled it, it means you are not a robot.

Father time had caught up to Taylor when those defeats happened - Mr Taylor was much more dependable at his peak than what MVG is today -

Taylor had more ways to win other than just throwing great darts, nice to see MvG, Lewis, Anderson and Wright just playing the greatest darts they can.

I hear you bud - Thats why I think Lowe is the best of them all - Bristow and Taylor played games on the oche - Lowe never did - A gentleman on and off the oche -

Dont react, he is the latest troll. Ignore him and he will go away.

No Robbo is right, I doubt he will ever achieve anywhere close what Taylor did.

Correct, needs to commit a huge part of his life to even come close. I somehow doubt MvG will keep on playing that long.

Co Stompe would be top 5 in the world if he was still playing full time.
Or something.

I am aware that Ginge is having his own fun - But I honestly forgot about Stompe - He was a very good player on his day - Always in Barneys shadow - Loved it when he beat Klassen at Lakeside that one year - The Christian Ronaldo stuff from Klassen never did it for me -

You know yourself that many good players in the PDC never amounted to much within the tougher BDO system, it's not just about raw talent.


Yes just look at how " outstanding " the record of bdo players is in The Grand Slam of darts the last few years #amatuerdarts

So in 11 years, one 1st place & one 2nd place. A 9% of reaching a final for the bdo players. How have they done in the knock out stages the last 3 years???

The PDC players do better at the GSOD - But its on their turf and they have more TV experience - If it was held at Lakeside it would be much closer - Even at Wolves its often quite close between the two codes - Both codes have good players - Theres just more of them in the PDC -
