The Grand Slam starts tomorrow and as always i'm hoping the BDO guys do good. :cheer: Their field this year looks better than ever, so i hope there could be a few guys that can pass the group stage. MVG vs. Wolfie for the first time i think, would be awesome and if MVG doesn't play like a terminator it would be even better. :d

They played 3 times before, all 3 times in 2006, when Mighty Mike was still that small teenage guy with hair who was stunning the world by being the biggest talent ever (considering his age and the incredible way he was playing) :d 

 

That was before his level dropped down to nothing special (I believe a 1st round exit at Lakeside), before a few years later it became his current insane level :p 

 

The last MVG vs Wolfie was the 2006 Winmau World Masters, where MVG won and became the youngest winner of a major ever (17) :)

The match is under way now, let's go Wolfie :clap:

 

It'd be an awesome moment to beat MVG, with his cancer problems and all. Let's do this.

Oh man, Van Gerwen is piiiiiiiissed off at Wolfie for all the smiling during the match :lol:

 

"I don't like it at all, come on..he's just smiling and everything, if you don't care about it, just stay home."

Damn, 5 BDO guys pass the group stage. :thumbup: This is their best performance as a team. And with all the talk, how they don't cope with the pressure of the big stage, 3 of them won a winner take all match, that went to the last leg. :d Especially Jeff Smith whoes 2 wins came with nail biting check-outs. The Barney - Durrant match will be a cracker, could fancy a Durrant win to be honest.

The way Jeff Smith finished off that match against Whitlock, wow :bowdown:

 

Today in the 1/8 finals we start with two of my least favourite players against each other, Gerwyn Price vs Brendan Dolan..really don't care who wins :p

I hope Smith takes advantage of Taylor's not so good form, Thornton kicks out asshole Van Gerwen and Wright beats Fitton who seems to gain 50kg every year..

 

Hughes against Dobey tomorrow...I only know Hughes fairly well and his comeback yesterday was awesome, so I hope he wins :d 

Van de Pas hopefully beats boring James Wade, it'd be cool to see Noppert take out Anderson and I'd like a Durrant win against Barney. 

 

So, dear players, there's my wish list. Make it come true :d

I agree on the wishes, tho reality will kick in very fast. :d I don't think Taylor was bothered very much with that dead rubber, it will be very different tonight. Plus the longer format will help him if he starts slow. As for Jeff, as amazing he is on the check-outs, if the big scoring isn't there he would have a very hard time keeping up. I hope the main go for the BDO guys was to get out of the group, so now they can go out without any pressure and loosen up. If 1-2 guys sneak in the 1/4 that would be awesome. :)

Well here we almost go, luckily we start with the match I am looking forward to the least of all :p 

 

I can't stand Dolan...but Price, ugh. 

 

Sadly, the darts program of today on Dutch TV is hosted by one of the most annoying, non-knowledgeable and hated hosts on Dutch TV. This weirdo jumping into a live TV report:

 

 

 

On Dutch forums, these are the kind of GIF's some creative people made that gets posted whenever he hosts the program :p

I've only seen bits and pieces of this tournament so far but should be able to catch all of it tonight. Boring match to begin with though.
