27% I think.
Still, 9% better than his world championship success rate.

cue Bowie's "Cha - Cha - Cha - Changes"

as a hat tip to wright's compulsive nature of dartistic reinvention

Taylor of years gone by would have reduced him to Barney levels of despair.

Too many shit TV events causes burn out. Having said that MVG only dominated in 2016. In that year he was unbeatable. In the 2017 world champs he was unbeatable no Phil from what ever decade would of beaten him. I got to say I have noticed he has started to "think about the doubles" before he wud just chuck them. His scoring power has slightly faded too.

I think about the time the ETs started Philth was on the wind down. If he was younger I think he would have used them to his full advantage, doing less PCs. Philth relished playing on the stage and especially against the top players, he loved demolishing them. The ETs were more than likely designed for a player like him. His fire in the belly had gone or was diminished by the time the ETs had become established.
I think he would have loved getting his ego bolstered with the travel and the fans and the winning if they would have come at an earlier age for him. He would have begged off the PCs completely if he had the choice. Result would have been a bigger gap for him at the top in the rankings with less travel.

Mvg is hardly thin, most of them have guts on them, hardly relevant.
Cannibal pretty much sums it up.
He would have been milking the pdc tit to the maximum and winning as a matter of course.
Mvg doesn't have the consistency to cope with peak Taylor.

MvG still young and as such going thru alot of "distractions" young players do, marriage, kids, maturity, fame, etc. Will be interesting to see how he continues to develop as I don't think he has reached his best yet. Otoh philth was a beast of special caliber at his peak, once in a lifetime drive and talent hard to come by. I think MvG has it too, just needs time of personal stability to focus on it much like Taylor had.

Btw what years is the consensus of philths peak? I always think it is about 2007 thru 2012 or so. Before that he was winning gobs but competition wasn't as deep. He seemed to be throwing higher and more avgs then but admit my recollection is biased as I am not a philth fan as much as say PT13 is.

Fair to say Taylor had two peaks.
Certainly not 07 when he was far from his best.
The second period would have been 2009-2013 I guess.
Easy to forget how good he was around the turn of the century. 8 world championships in a row, hammered Barney in every cross code match up going, the grand prix performances were particularly brutal.
Champions game against Burnett and the match play final against warriner other standout performances.
Also got to remember the boards they were playing on.
First peak was arguably 2000-2003 but certain others are better placed to judge.
