TAYLOR TOP FOR TEN MINUTES
By John Lowe, Mar 11 2016 07:53AM
Phil Taylor went top of the Premier League table for a while in Nottingham last night, of course MVG was playing last ! the standard of play was quite amazing, no less than 7 players out of the 10 averaged over 100 per throw, first was Gary Anderson who beat Michael Smith 7-3 with a good all round performance, and with a game in hand Gary will fancy his chances to be in contention to retaining his title. Adrian Lewis beat Peter Wright 7-3 in a match much closer than the score-line suggests, both players averaged over 100.
James Wade beat Barney 7-5 but made hard work of it, after being 5-1 in front, he allowed Barney back in and was lucky to get the win when Barney missd 3 darts to take a point, again both players averaged over 100.
Robert Thornton lost to Phil Taylor 7-0 and to be honest played like the player bottom of the league with 1 point, Robert has been ill and is not back to any where near his best, but Taylor seems to have found some of his old form and looks to be enjoying his darts.
MVG beat Dave chisnall 7-2 and climbed back to the top of the table, be it on leg difference, his avergae of 113-47 was by far the highest of the night and his finishing average of 54% was what made that average so high, it is obvious though that the other players realise they have to play at a higher standard if they are going to stay with MVG.
Next week's P.L. is in Glasgow and the 2 players at the top of the table play each other; Mighty Michael Van Gerwen v Phil The Power Taylor, Taylor says he is looking forward to playing Michael, MVG's reply: Really !
