The Dog pines for Lakeside


Well Lakeside 2012 has come and gone for me.

A few missed doubles and some great finishing from Martin Adams the current World champion and the dream gone for another year.

The harsh reality for me is the 12 months hard graft travelling was over in 27 minutes, It was the draw I wanted feeling being the underdog tag would help me.

Had I not run Martin close in Zuiderduin Masters on TV a month ago, I think it would have.

Those who know me should know I^m not a doom and gloom merchant when I’ve lost, so I will try to take positives from a match, so the missed 130 in the penultimate leg pressured Martin on double for him to win the match, which he missed. I then missed double 5 leaving 5, I hit big number 1 and double 2 under that pressure is positive for me.

The 136 to save the match, to hit the 2 treble 20s again to give me a chance to save match for 2nd time under the pressure pleased me too.

Also for a player with the magnitude of such a game, until you watch the match back, your feeling is you have played a whole lot worse than you actually have because you^ve lost. Despite outcome of the match, the Lakeside fans are fantastic and don^t allow you to be down for long.

I will return on and off for the rest of the week as a fan to support my dart playing family, who will all be doing their best to provide genuine entertainment to the dart fans.
