looks like they've changed the lighting in the BARN to make it look fuller - but it still looks half empty - echo's too. I think they've put it in too big a room, and not sold enough tickets.

Bomber in trouble in this first game tho - hardly a soft opponent tho in Jones. Who said Jones n Walshy were only floor players? :)

Jones up 2-0.

Just won the 2nd set with a 124 finish on the bull when the set was level at 2-2 in legs. Brown was waiting on D10.

You'd get a better atmosphere at a Pro Tour game. The 6pm start is a disaster for most people trying to commute to Citywest during rush hour traffic.

Did anybody hear Taylor's interview the other nite when he said he had seen a couple of youngsters he could groom into world beaters, but don't live near him. Who do we reckon?

Sam Allen (I haven't seen cos not on tv yet)
Adie Lewis (Has given up on him obv)
Mark Frost (Ditto. Reason: a) not hungry enough? b) not good enough)

the standard really went up in that last set - although it had to really. Some good darts.
