I doubt he'll get back in next year. Same with Price.
Next year will be very interesting.
You can guarantee MvG, Cross, Crusty, Gando, Smith and RvB.
gurney will probably be in

That would leave 3 places..Whitlock and Mensur may be in with a shout if they maintain their ranking and if Wade continues his form he could be in with a shout.
And there is always the possibility of someone going on a run in the worlds but there are not many contenders yet. I think that Cadby would have to do something major to get in. I am sure Barry cannot wait for him to be ready but if he doesn't do anything for the rest of the year then it will probably be next year.
Other than that it is Webster and the horrible prospect of Ian White

I think Cadby is probably in. To be fair, got to the UK Open final, same as Price last year, and that gave him the nod in the PL. And Cadby is a far more interesting prospect, in both a darts and business sense so he'll be in.

Other 2 places are in doubt I think. Wade is the top contender right now. And any of Clayton, White, Cullen, Kyle Ando, Chizzy, Lewis, D.Webster etc could be in depending on how the TV events go. Also the players fucked out this year, Whitlock and Mensur indeed have a decent chance to get back. There are so many TV events now that there are bound to be a few contenders I think. Impossible to judge right now

I think Mensur blew his chance. He had a good last year and deserved to be in can't see him repeating the 'highs' of last year. if Cadby does well in the world series and remaining season. Maybe an ouside chance of Kyle Anderson. Perhaps it's time to scrap the invite and find a way of making it a ranking.

I think that would be harsh, it's a very exclusive club, and there's so much money in it that those that can't quite make it would have a mountain to climb to get to the top 8/16

There is more chance of hell freezing over than white getting in.

He is Stoke's #1, but unfortunately the Stoke market is not as important as Germany and Holland. Turns out their darts are going the same way as their football team

2 Rob Cross England £662,750
3 Peter Wright Scotland £593,000
4 Gary Anderson Scotland £413,000
5 Daryl Gurney Northern Ireland £379,750
6 Michael Smith England £259,250
7 Simon Whitlock Australia £232,750
8 Mensur Suljovic Austria £231,500
9 Gerwyn Price Wales £206,500
10 Raymond van Barneveld Netherlands £200,750
11 Dave Chisnall England £198,250
12 Ian White England £191,500
13 Darren Webster England £186,250
14 James Wade England £176,250
15 Johnny Clayton Wales £167,250
16 Joe Cullen England £161,500


Menstruate and Shitlock more than likely will both be back in the PL next year. Of course head shaking moaning low blood sugar cunt will be back in as well. The last spot more than likely is coming down to the Nutter and Jizzy. Maybe some lower ranked player who wins a major or gets to a final like Drongo. Can't see Roid Rage getting invited back. The only other player who may not be back is Shitlock but would expect someone is going to have to do something special in the Worlds or get to a final or win something. Fatpot is the only one other than Drongo who I see doing that who is outside the top 16.

White, yes no chance in hell he gets in, he has the stink of Pipe on him. I think it is unfortunate as he is a consistent player on the floor, goes a bit wobbly on the TV but still far better than a shit load of players. Why not give White the chance to mess himself, has to be one every year.

Far to many majors to come to even use rankings as a guide yet, a TV final will more or less get you in these days.

I doubt he'll get back in next year. Same with Price.
Wade will get back I assume if he continues his early season good form....
