Least they are sending a team this time. Shambolic what happened two years ago.

Pathetic and dire.

This means even less than the PDC one and that’s just as pointless.

Are we sure that the EDO can afford it after paying out for everyone's replacement flights to the Isle of Man?

Or does Tommy really think Easyjet will just change a load of flights gratis if he gets on the blower? :MAD:

Disagree. It is a true amateur World Cup, three different competitions, open to all national federations, with an open draw. It's lack of profile and professional players does not detract from its worth as a competition. The home nations not competing last time certainly did!

No, you're not.

But it's nice to pretend. Like making believe you were in the team, on that flight, desperately trying to get the tray down.

Now where's that picture........?

Excellent transport links with the International airport just 10km from the venue.

The lad in the video, Vlad Popa, is also a live comm for Eurosport Romania. He did the last 2 PDC Worlds and a bunch of Lakesides before that.
