The Top Ten

Phil Taylor
The most dominant darts player for the last decade and a half


Best ever especially when you 8 world titles
In a row, and hits two nine darters in one game, I don, t think no one else would achieve what phils done.
What why is Ted Hankey 9th?
Phil Taylor is #1 No brains really, 16th time world champ,
10 time Grand Prix champ and 6 time Premier league champion (i think there
Will be a 7th time).
[Newest]I think he can do better in this years premier league

2Raymond Van Barneveld
No 2. 5 world titles and beaten Taylor more times than anyone
only fourth because four of his world titles came beating second rate bdo players. but proved himself in 2008
The only player from the continent that has been a top player for many years. And still is a to payer.
[Newest]No sorry but to be a great champ you have to be a good looser barney needs to lose gracefully

3Michael van Gerwen
The young talent!
Won the world Grand Prix of 2012 and reached the final of the PDC World Championship 2013.
Almost hit 2 nine darters in a row: he only missed the D12 after 17 perfect darts.
I'm sure we'll see more of him in the future.
19 perfect darts, never performed before this man is already a legend. He now won the Premier league vs Taylor and atm I think he is the no1.
Definitaly one of the best darters, and still so young
[Newest]Best darts player on the planet 🎯🎯

4Eric Bristow
5 BDO titles and 10 BDO titles, the epitome of darts in the 1980's


Can't believe Bristow is this low. Five world titles against top players, a man who ruled the sport before his protege, Phil Taylor, overtook him. One of the greats.
I had the pleasure of playing against Eric back in the 1980's when he was undisputed king of all darts. Virtually unbeatable.

5Adrian Lewis
Most naturally gifted darter in the history of the sport!
At times, he plays like no one. Not even Phil.
Huge Aidy Lewis fan, unbelievable natural talent. Hopefully he will add to hid two world titles in the future


6James Wade
2nd most successful PDC darts Ayer ever. Record 3 9 darters in 1 calendar year still unbroken. Not been out of top 10 since he entered almost 10 years ago! Machine like, reliable, no fuss, brave and unwell man and for that I actually rate James in top 3
People forget how young he still is. Only 32 has at least another 20+ years at the top level and he has already won everything except for the World title. Consistently averages in the 98-105 range and leads the field when it comes to doubles. Well underrated by the Sky commentators and pundits.
Just got that something

7John Lowe
3 world champs and 2 world masters, legend


three world titles all won against the best players in the world
Had the pleasure of playing doubles with John in 1985 when he came to Australia. A great player and good bloke.
[Newest]Must be higher then no8. Lowe/Bristow/Wilson all brilliant

8John Part
won three world titles two of the in the pdc
Darth Maple is a former three time champ and was Taylor's most feared opponent in the early 2000s. Many consider the big Canadian as the best counter ever seen in the sport.
"Darth Maple", the greatest non European dartsman with 3 world titles


9Dennis Priestley
Dennis the menace has 2 world titles and 4 other final appearances


only won two world titles but would have certainly been more if it wasnt for phil taylor

10Gary Anderson
Great player, high scorer and finisher, great bloke, the best is yet to come for gary
The greatest natural talent the game has ever seen


2015 world champion beat Peter write in the quarter finals ( can't spell his name ) mvg in the semis 6-3 and Taylor in the finale 7-6 best one I've ever seen and beaten Taylor 4 times in the row more than anyone else enough said
[Newest]Best player in the world

The Contenders

11Jocky Wilson
the colourful scot always gave 100 percent should have won more than his two world titles
The best thrower non the less. At least top 10
Just died not so long back nice guy

12Ted Hankey

13Kim Huybrechts
One for the future, definitely will have a lot of battles between Lewis, van Gerwen, Webster and Wade in the future!
He's on his way becoming a legend
Can beat anyone on his day. Belgium's best player so far. Still very young, World Title is possible for him one day.

14Peter Wright
Must admit I do not like this bloke. Plays for Scotland even though he is pure English just for international darts, arrogant and a poor loser. Darts is a game for gentlemen and he is what is wrong with modern darts. Good though, no doubt.


Can't find him in this list don't know where to put him but definitely deserves a place

15Dave Chisnall
Pure talent and such a nice guy. May be dumber than a bag of rocks but I love watching him play.


16Terry Jenkings
Just a great darts man who always does well and should be further up this list.
Awesome pure and simple

17Mervyn King

18Vincent van der Voort

19Simon Whitlock
Got the most hair and the most intensity
Your the best beat white
Simon is the best, at least top 3 with van gerwen and lewis

20Bobby George
the darts personality! (Well maby Mardle... )


Built his own house
