Perhaps slightly off topic but would like to know how many under 21 players are currently in the top 16 of the PDC OOM?? Asking for a friend :grin:

With the bdo being a lower level, and all their experienced players gone to the pdc and a lot of them failing, it would not surprise me if the bdo top 16 had more younger players seeing as the competition is so weak and the travel club of fitton, o shea, adams etc are beginning to realize they simply are not good enough.

Ignoring your trolling for a minute, that's always been a Big ask in 40 years of pro darts.
Very tough for young players to get to the top 16 that young. MVG , Adrian Lewis were two exceptions. Even Taylor was no where near it until he was 30. Look how long it took Wolfie - he was over 40 (and it took the existing top 16 to all leave, but that's another debate!)

Think "young" in darts terms is under 30, tbf. Certainly not McGeeney, who was aged 44 at the time someone claimed he was a "young hope".

look at the "young players" that won lakeside

Mark Webster
Jelle Klaasen
Stephen Bunting
Chritian Kist.....they all hooked it to the pdc

look at the old players that hung around like a bad smell, waites, adams etc...they spent the weekend averaging about 80

Is it any wonder anyone with half a game and commitment could rise up their rankings in the bdo
Wes Newton and Andy Hamilton even made lakeside ffs......

Using one game against Gilding in a short format as benchmark as to how good he is thou is ridiculous , there's not 8 better darts players on the planet than Glen at the moment for sure
Which shop do you buy your kneepads from?
Stating the obvious and sucking him off are two separate things Ginge but good comeback all the same , well done :DDDD:
