No bets this time. Will miss Sunday's matches..........Roscommon are entertaining the Dubs in football so I'm off to that. Still, something to watch later.

Might have a bet after the first round or two. I'll have to record what's shown on TV tonight as I'm going to work around 19:07... but if I was there I'd be watching the non televised boards in the hope of spotting a few live outsiders for the later rounds. Have it on the 40" plasma at the moment with last nights Premier League playing on my smartphone!

Nha, my sister keeps horses so I can always go for a canter if I want to... which is extremely rare these days, to be honest.

With so many "shocks" there has to be value there somewhere. I didn't see either of Lennon's games but I reckon I'll just have a throwaway tenner on him at 100/1. No fun in backing Price now that Anderson is gone but I guess he has some appeal at 8/1. I suppose one could also make a case for Londonderry's Daryl Gurney at 12s given his obvious liking for Minehead. The open draw makes it tricky but Dimitri Van Den burgh and Nathan Aspinall, both at 25/1, are live outsiders.

Had to settle for €8.40 on Lennon. Market was suspended on Bet365 so I went to the biggest bookmaker in the world, paddypower.com, and the limit was a (surprisingly generous, to be honest) €8.40.

You can watch scores from around the boards on https://www.flashscores.co.uk/darts/ LL. Better late than never, I guess.

I must remember to back Chisnall to lose 9-10 next time. He never disappoints in that regard.

Gurney did the same against a walking wounded Smith... Lennon went 7-3 up on Aspinall before losing 10-8... grrrr

Nice to see Aspinall win it after him beating Lennon. Not the best of finals but (for no particular reason) I don't like Rob Cross.

2 right gypos- the pair of them- in my opinion...Essex meets Mushy Peas and fried Mars bars.
