    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    If lockdowns worked that simply, we would have only needed one of them, they are a very short term fix at best, at worst they don't work at all

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    ALL official stats prove that lockdown countries and states fared worse than those that didn’t. Your rocket science blew up on the launchpad...

    European Union - In Or Out?

    If ever there was evidence how incompetent the BoJo government is, this is it... https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-deal-vote-ratification-boris-johnson-b1812404.html If he was planning to violate the agreement then he should at least have waited until the EU ratified it.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Twitcher hasn't posted for months on end on this thread. Therefore that intimates he's retired from this thread. I didn't say forum, just this thread. The above is factually correct, but posting it makes me a troll. It's astounding how some brains work on this forum sometimes!

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    I am sure there graph somewhere that will provide the answer
  9. Doolan will be a big miss for the Bandits. If both Etheridge and especially Gappmaier can up there away performances you could be right in Berwick being dark horses

    Championship League Predictions

    Agree largely with the masses Plymouth, Scunny and Newcastle to struggle massively away and take some beatings at home too. Eagles home advantage might be key but Lions, Pirates and Tigers all going to be pushing hard and certainly worth a watch of those meetings. Berwick to be dark horses and get near the play off spots...
  12. agree with greyhounds gone at poole now not sure what the long term future will be at wimborne road .we got speedway this season coming but who knows after that .?

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Perfectly acceptable assumption (singular) on my part. Just because you intimate you 'know' something contradictory and will not share it, it doesn't make what I've posted any less credible. FACT.

    Just like it did 12 months ago, yes?

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Just more silly assumptions on your part...
  16. 1. Eastbourne - Very strong 1-5 with brilliant reserves. 2. Leicester - Very strong 1-5 with brilliant reserves, at home. May struggle a tiny bit away with their lack of experience at this level. The only thing separating the top two, very tight between the two teams. 3. Glasgow - Powerful number 1 and possibly the strongest reserve partnership in the league, will be very strong at home but I feel won't beat some of the stronger teams away as they have a couple hit and miss riders (Ricky, Justin and Ulrich.) 4. Redcar - A lot depends on their 3rd signing, but with the riders who are left available, don't see them using up all their available points, if they can pull a rabbit out of the hat, they will compete with Eastbourne and Leicester imo. Best rider in the league at number 1 too and arguably the best reserve with Anders? 5. Poole - Best top 3 in the league but not a huge amount beyond that, Danyon should do well at reserve and Stefan always gives 110%, not sure about the 2 new Aussies, don't know much about them. Poole should make the playoffs, and I'm sure any underperforming rider will quickly be replaced... 6. Plymouth - Think a lot of people are underestimating the ability of some of the riders in this team. Henry is top class around the arena and Alfie is very good there too, very strong reserves. Dillon will be used to small tracks in the USA and I think he will make a very good 3rd heatleader. Steven is a very exciting rider who I have the priviledge to watch on more than one occasion in France, for a teenager he looks to have a massive career ahead of him and he should be able to take to the arena very well. Jason and Bjarne are 2 big names who shall draw in the crowds and add a bit of entertainment and priceless experience for the 5 youngsters in the team. Plymouth SHOULD make the playoffs, and I look forward to making the 6 hour journey to see them. 7. Edinburgh - A lot will depend on how well the 2 new lads get going, Kye should feel relatively at home with the pedigree of Australians the Monarchs have bought through the ranks and currently have in the team, Max Fricke and Sam Masters spring to mind. Lasse looks like a decent little prospect so should be able to do a decent enough job for the Monarchs. That being said, I don't think they look quite as strong on paper as the teams above. 8. Kent - Starting to get towards the weaker end of the table now. Think Kent have enough experience to top the 'weaker teams table'. Scott Nicholls and Cameron Heeps should be able to add invaluable experience and help the younger lads (Dan and Ben) on very well, who should both be decent reserves. Looking forward to seeing how Tom Bacon gets on, as he should surprise a few this year imo. Paul Hurry is an interesting name. 9. Birmingham - A lot will obviously depend on who their remaining 3 signings are, but they seem to have a decent reserve pairing with Paco and Jack. Chris Harris is a good number 1 and Ashley is a 110% trier. If they can get 3 decent signings I think they may be bumped up a few places here. 10. Berwick - Another typical Berwick team, not the worst but nowhere near the playoffs. Nice to see 2 young, local talents at reserve, Leon should be near enough unbeatable at home against any other reserve in the league. Nikolaj should do a decent job, but they really need to get Dany going away from home, as this is one of the biggest weakness of the team. At least the 1-7 should have decent enough chemistry, which I can see pushing them away from the wooden spoon. 11. Scunthorpe - Scunthorpe have an ok enough team, but I just can't see them looking any stronger than the teams above. Yes they've got ok reserves and I think at home they will be very difficult to beat. But having Auty, Jorgensen, Aarnio and the inexperience of Jordan at reserve, they may struggle away from home. Of course, a lot depends on their final signing, but I really don't see who is available??? 12. Newcastle - My beloved Newcastle. I appreciate the situation the club has been in the last couple of years, with the takeover and the delayed start we had behind everyone else, and tbh we've got a pretty good team scraped together. However, we have a few too many unknowns imo. James Wright is a big unknown, he looked good at the Ben Fund last season and in years gone by, he was a decent rider, however that was an awful long time ago. An even bigger unknown is Adam Roynon's love (Or lack of) for Brough Park, really hope he can get to grips with the track and he can have an injury free season. Joe Alcock, to me, isn't good enough for this level yet, I don't want to sound harsh, but it's true. If we were going to go for that level of rider, I would have much rather have seen either Josh or Archie, think if we could have gone for someone like Connor Coles at reserve, I'd have been a lot more confident. I do however love the fact that Max and Matty are back and at 3 and 4, they should be a brilliant pairing around Brough, worth a lot more then their averages suggest. Fingers crossed my negativity is wrong, but I don't see Newcastle anywhere but the wooden spoon this year, if we finish with this team. However, I don't really care, I just wanna see some bikes now, get out the house and see some racing!!!

    Yep that Pant innings has been the difference so far. Conditions still leaning too far towards the bowlers though which is a pity. Difficult to see anything other than an Indian victory from here unless somebody English can bat big.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Lockdowns reduce the numbers of infection (as folk are not running around spreading the virus) which in turn reduces the number of deaths. Rocket science it is not.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Well throw a fact into the pot about where Twitcher has gone then... Until something else is known or until Twitcher posts here once again, his 'retirement' from this thread is a perfectly reasonable assumption to make. FACT. Facts are obviously not your strong point either my good fellow.
  21. superb wines, wish we had one in Newcastle

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Yes, your argument is defeated by Sweden which has only 12,000 deaths despite Stockholm having a population of 1 million and another 4 million Swedes living in cities and towns, regardless of the fact that its overall density is low due to the other 5 million being spread wide and far. An overall density figure for a country is practically irrelevant if a significant proportion live in urban areas. Although to be fair you do have a point if it’s a comparison per million of the population.
