Ones To Watch – When Your All Practised, Out Just Watch Darts Instead!

The DW resident ‘Coach’ often says that darts is a unique sport. Among many examples he cites the fact that “almost the entire history of our game can be watched or read. Not just with peoples opinion or commentary but with video, data , records and contemporary analysis.”

‘Coach’ regularly refers his clients to the record books to confirm whether their perceptions are true, or not, in order that they are not deluded into thinking that they are not worthy, or that they have some sort of flaw in their game.

One of his favourite things is to tell people to watch darts, but not just to see who wins. Watch the ebb and flow of the game, the momentum switches and the psychological tricks, swings and effects that take place throughout a match.

Check out one of his favourites below, it is a remarkable demonstration of elite darts. Coach is working on a commentary, and analysis of the match, for future use, but in the meantime just enjoy it for its own sake.

The ‘wee man’ was a little special!

World Championship Final 1989

Coach – ” You will rarely see, in any era, a performance as remarkable as this. Seven years after his first title and against a resurgent ‘Crafty Cockney’ “.

“I especially recommend the first five sets and the section that begins with Jockey’s second throw in the first leg!”
