World Championship Darts:Taylor v Cross

Post by terrya1965 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 3:39 pm

I honestly don't think Rob Cross got the credit he deserved last night.

Taylor only thought he had to turn up and intimidate his opponent(he did that to most),then walk off with the trophy again.I so enjoyed the way he got demolished and smashed up.

Cross only missed 14 doubles in a 11 set Final and checked out on some phenomenal scores just like Phil use to do against his opponents..It was the first time I'd ever known Taylor to have that"I don't know what I can do to beat him" look on his face.Taylor actually played well too,but he had no answer to Cross.

Considering Cross only turned professional at the start of the year,it`s a remarkable feat.It was the 3rd highest in a Final(Van Gerwen beat him into 2nd by 0.11) and is the 13th Highest by anybody in any round of the World Championships.

Phil Taylor has NEVER been beaten up like that in a World Championship Match.Only 2 other players have averaged over a 100 against him and Cross beat them by a mile(107.67).

Did you know,a 100 plus average has only been done a 145 times in the 25 year history and Cross has done that 4 times this year on debut.

A remarkable debut for anyone.WELL DONE Rob

Just a debate on Talksport about Taylor.

The greatest player ever,no doubt,but the most arrogant "bad loser sportsman" you will ever meet.

Last night,he took the limelight completely away from Cross.It was all about him has usual.The crowd should have been hailing a great new Champion,but that is Taylor for you.

He intimidated many and IMO "cheated", though many would call it gamesmanship.He was allowed to do many things,that other players wouldn`t be allowed to do.He got away with murder because who he was.One day,it will all come out.

I loved watching Taylor years ago for how good he was at his craft,but in the last 10 or so years,I watched him because I wanted to see him get beat.

Personally,I am glad to see the back of him.

Totally agree thought Taylor was a knob last night, when he got it back to 3.1 he tried to intimidate cross then but fair play cross never wavered, then at 5.1 he started a bit of the I'm not bothered routine offering his darts to the crowd and just generally acting the cunt. I can except top players been upset when they lose and behaving out of character immediately after the game but Taylor is just as bad a loser as he is a winner, can't even be gracious in victory.
Think it was earlier in the year when he had just put van gerwin to the sword and immediately after the game said some shit about van gerwin should grow up, bit rich coming from him, don't suppose he will give a fuck though, now he's retired should think we'll see more of him then ever giving us his views on how great he was, great darts player bit of a cunt as as person.

Steve Beaton now he's a top bloke, did an exhibition down my local club a couple of years ago. I'd been out to watch my local club Lincoln city it was the day West Ham won at anfield 3.0 so I'd gone straight from the game to enjoy a number of beers, with the 4 pints before the match and the halt time pint think it's fair to say when I walked in the club I was getting loud, straight up to the duke box turn it full belt I shouted to my sister working behind the bar, within seconds a chorus of bubbles was to be heard and the Liverpool lot went quiet, couple more hammers songs and then I was informed that Mr Beaton was waiting to come on stage.
Anyway out he came to loud applause and one mouthy cunt booing him, for the next few hours I gave the poor bloke some right shit all good natured but shit none the less, after a while others started joining in singing any old bolloxs while he was throwing, my personal favourite ( we all hate Leeds scum) anyway after a while he was getting pissed himself so the darts stopped and the question and answers section began and more good natured banter and general piss taking, he took the lot laughing and joking.
He was only booked until 11 but he stopped until well past closing having photos n signing autographs, he even chatted to me for about 20 mins after I'd given him all the shit, I finished up by giving him a bear hug n planting a kiss smack bang on his forehead, don't think he was to happy and I'd like to add I'm not gay.
Anyway even he more or less said Taylor was a cunt and he wasn't popular on the circuit, when he does his exhibitions he demands certain things, his own changing room he won't socialise before hand or during only a short questions section, and that if it was him I'd given all the shit he would of walked off stage and 1 or 2 other things he said he demands, and that he was generally not a nice person.

Have spent few nights out, in the company of Taylor. He is an obnoxious northern cunt.

Cross was always going to beat him, even at his best, Taylor would have been pushed to beat 106 av in a world final (especially going second)

I used to live in a place called North Cheam and Peter Manley ran the local newsagents and lived on the corner. He thought Taylor was a right tosser and said that he refused to shake his hand because he was sick of him winning all the time :lol:

Tbf to Taylor,he has done the best average ever in a Final(110.94),but Cross is 3rd on that list and his only been a Professional since February,a quite remarkable rise in anyone`s book.

Why was it on Talksport ? Darts isn't a sport, we've had this before.

It should have been on Talkpasstime.
