one of the classic lines in darts came after that 1983 world final when Bristow turned down the bull shot and Deller took out 138 to win title

"Bristow did the percentage shot, Deller did the business"

Very sad news indeed. I remember the Indoor League programme with Freddie Trumann on Sundays Michael which was instrumental getting darts featured, and that's probably where it all started from.

On Andy Fordham..."He's sweating like a hippo in a power shower."

"As Freud said to Jung in Vienna, you can psych up too much for a darts match."

"Bristow reasons; Bristow quickens; Aaaaaah, Bristow."

We will miss him. Darts will never be the same without him. Really funny guy, and he made me fall in love with the sport. Legend.

As they say, though. The show must go on.
