Phil Taylor’s interview directly after the match with Daryl Gurney. He gave the darts world a few remarkable quotes!

Taylor said: “His head’s down all the time. He just walks down all the time with his head down. Why I don’t know? He’s a fantastic dart player he really is, but not good to watch. I wanted to teach him a lesson, course I did; he’s a youngster.

“You know what he did wrong? He poured himself a glass of water and left me out and I thought you cheeky cheeky young so and so. Respect. It’s called respect. Without me there wouldn’t be a PDC. Have a little bit of respect, come on, you know what I mean.

“I knew the crowd would get behind me which they did, god bless them. But I knew if I could put him under pressure, the normal what Daryl Gurney does is drops his head. He is one of the best players I’ve ever seen.

“When you asked me if he’s one of the future of darts, not the way he is, but he could be. But not the way he is now. He needs to cheer up and entertain. Watch now, Michael {Van Gerwen} is going to throw his arms about.”

“I wish I was 20 years younger because I would give these lot, trust me. I’d be fighting every week, I’d probably get my head kicked in but I’d be fighting every week.

“But it doesn’t matter, because this is what the game’s about, this is what Barry Hearn has created. He’s created this little bit of a monster. You’ve got personalities up there who are not personalities. They are like zombies. I mean I’m playing a young lad there who is number four in the world and it’s like playing a zombie.

“Come on; you’ve got the whole future; the whole world’s with you. Enjoy yourself and enjoy your life, do you know what I mean. Enjoy the game, enjoy what you’re doing. Don’t walk down looking at your shoes because they need polishing. Enjoy a game!”

“I am a little sausage, trust me, because I get fined, and I’ll be honest with all the viewers, everything that I do wrong I get fined, but when these people do things wrong, I make sure that they don’t do it again. Does that make sense?”

Taylor who plays Michael van Gerwen this afternoon also had some remarks for him: “Me and Michael had words before; he said listen you’re taking the mickey. I said course I’m going to do it back, no it’s not taking the mickey, I’m giving you back what you give me, because he does it on me, he throws his arms about and all that business, he doesn’t like it when they give it you back. Tough!”
