I'm still here, honest

I was going to post quickly after PC 21-23, but got distracted with a few real life things which put me off. I was then going to post after the Challenge Tour, but then thought "well they'll surely be posting something about the Euro Tour/Euro Championship soon", so I'll wait for that. Then it's close enough to the Development Tour, so I'll wait for that. So what I'll do early next week is do an uberpost collating a bunch of thoughts about what's happened in August and what's going on soon, before we get into the countdown of the European Tour. It's still incredibly disappointing that it looks in all likelihood we're only going to have two events on there - how that works with the European Championship, which I assume is happening given it's been listed as a qualifying event for the Grand Slam, who knows. Maybe they could take the top 16 from the two events and then invite the top player from each country not yet qualified to get a big range of players?

I will post up new FRH rankings as they're long overdue:

1 Gerwyn Price
2 Peter Wright
3 Michael van Gerwen
4 James Wade
5 Dimitri van den Bergh
6 Gary Anderson
7 Jose de Sousa
8 Dave Chisnall
9 Michael Smith
10 Krzysztof Ratajski
11 Joe Cullen
12 Jonny Clayton
13 Dirk van Duijvenbode
14 Nathan Aspinall
15 Stephen Bunting
16 Devon Petersen
17 Mervyn King
18 Simon Whitlock
19 Daryl Gurney
20 Ian White (NEW)

Only change is White dumping Durrant out of the top 20, but with Humphries now less than 2500 points behind him in 22nd, White is surely back out again son. Searle is up to 27 after his second bink. van Gerwen is nearly as close to Wade as he is Wright, which might surprise you, while Dimitri and Gary are fairly close.
