The PL is in full swing and I've got to say well done to the PDC and Sky Sports for altering the format. By increasing the participants from 8 to 10 players we have heightened the drama as now you have the prospect of elimination after nine weeks – and that's got tongues wagging.

Adrian Lewis at the moment looks a certainty to get the boot. The former two time champion of the world is really struggling for any kind of form and unless he turns things around ASAP he will have a few Thursdays off.

The likes of Taylor and Barney are going about their business as usual, looking more than likely that they will be part of the play-offs in May.

The star of the show has to be Michael Van Gerwen. The young Dutchman, making his debut, has hit the ground running. Week after week he thrills the packed arenas and those at home watching on Sky Sports with his superb dartistry.
