Favourite Darts Matches

Post by ChrisW » Wed Mar 25, 2020 10:14 pm

OK rather than the trolling between 4 sad acts how about we start a thread to get something to read here during this difficult time.

I will start with one not mentioned so much but always struck me as win which was special for many reasons.

Mine is Mardle v Taylor 2008 PDC WC QF.

I don't even like Mardle and didnt particularly back then. But I really didn't like Taylor.

It was a win no one saw coming as Taylor had made all 14 PDC world finals prior. First ever defeat for the Phil Taylor outside the final at the event.

It was great watching someone really bully him and take him apart mentally.

Hankey v MVG at the Slam a personal highlight

I know I have already posted my favourite ever darts match, but this one was one I will always remember. At the time Taylor seemed invincible.

Someone seems to have rudely deleted my review of one of my favourite matches. I wasn't aware that we were only allowed to pick specific games.
aka JRWFSL147

And then mardle went and fucked up the semi.

That was his year, him and part would have had a great final.

I loved the 2016 final between Lewis and Anderson . 2 guys at the top of their game, close encounter and has my favourite moment in any final when Anderson hits the 170 checkout and just walks towards his wife .

Always comes up in these conversations but i wonder if anyone has found footage of the 1995 match play when jocky wins in the first round

Yeah that would have been a good final to watch though I’d still back Part to win it. He was playing better than a lot of people give him credit for that year. Not his fault he knew he didn’t have play better to win the final.

Also speaking of Part him v Wade in the quarters has to be up their in my top 10 games was a great watch.

One of the best matches ever at Lakeside.

Ted v Mason - 2000 semi final. Brilliant.
Match starts 10 mins into the video.
