Always a good weekend for the armchair sportsman. 3rd round FA Cup and the possibility of some red-faced premiership managers. And 9 days of pure unadulterated darts. After the sham of the PDC championship I for one are looking forward to the Lakeside. If you like watching 6-0, 7-0 matches and an disinterested crowd (who talk rather than watch the games) in what looks like a blackpool pub, with scoring from a fat bloke with laryngitis then the PDC is for you.
Anyway i hope the BDO and the lakeside can restore my faith in darts after that farce.
Semi-Finals: Come on Klaasen!!!
Jelle Klaasen (Ned) v Shaun Greatbatch (Eng)
Martin Adams (Eng) v Raymond van Barneveld (Ned)
And not forgetting the ladies.
Clare Bywaters (Eng) v Sabine Beutler (Swi)
Trina Gulliver (Eng) v Karen Littler (Eng)
Francisca Hoenselaar (Ned) v Karen Lawman (Eng)
Karin Krappen (Ned) v Jan Robbins (Wal)
And the winner is Trina Gulliver. Right better get down the newsagents to get me championship wall-chart.
