Darren Appleton announces his bid to make Team Europe for 2020 - 12-02-2019, 02:06 PM

Did anyone else catch this?
At 12:55 in the video....

https://youtu.be/i0IHj25AI_E

Darren announces that he is back playing full time and going to make a run at getting back on the European Team for next years Mosconi Cup (projected to have 3-4 thousand in attendance by Barry Hearn).

Another little tidbit, Darren addresses possible Captaincy if Marcus decides to step down.

Team USA better work hard because Europe will retool and be a completely different team next year in England.

Darren is one of my favorite players but he would need a huge year to be in consideration given the crop of young players in Europe.

I think he would be an asset to Europe as Captain.

So, Darren marries an American gal and they have lived in Pennsylvania for over a decade. Now he wants to make the Euro team? Sounds like a double dealing two-way spy .. I'm calling Trump.

IDK if Darren still has it, or if he can get it back if he doesn't. Sometimes coming back is harder than one would think.

Really, Europe has plenty of talent, this years team was pretty much an anomaly. Filler was the only one who really held up, most of the others dogged their brains out. Substitute one of them, any one besides Filler, with Albin and the Cup may have gone a different way. You need a special kind of player for the Cup, and Eurotour performance may not be a good predictor of Mosconi cup performance. That is true either way, btw. Someone who may not do well on Eurotour may shine in the Mosconi cup, too.

I'd be more excited if Boyes made a comeback, or if they let Melling in. Should be some good possible wildcards from Poland too. Kazakis and Kaci should take a year off, IMO. And Niels needs more time to get back to his former self.

At the International in Norfolk....Darren was being called Resurrection Daz....
...he was showing his old form.
And he is captain material.

But Id rather see him play for the country hes living in...this goes for a few others also.


Lionize your game.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

It'll be tough for him to have enough points living in the US or get picked as a wildcard.

If he was American I'd see zero problem with him making our team , but the way the Euro team is picked it will be hard sledding, I think they have been handcuffed , Fedor Gorst sits at home with a Fargo rating higher than any American player not named Shane 809

Didn't Appleton move back to England quite a while ago?

They are divorced a while back and he lives in England again. Shaw lives here in the states.

Sorry to hear that. They were together for quite a while. Wonder how much the divorce had to do with Daz moving on from pool. Thanks for the update.

He threw his hat into the ring for the Coaching Job just a few days ago also.


PS- If i lost that wife, I'd be devastated also.

I wasn't aware he had stopped playing full time. I remember when he posted on this website until the usual suspects ran him off.

I don't doubt he will make the team if he focuses on it.
