    Obviously a bit of jealousy in yours & HGould's predictions with Tero being in our team but with 4 heat leaders from last year, 1 with a home track bias & the other 3 having carried injuries in 2019, I think we will do well. Plus, probably having another rider that was on most teams wish list, another that improved no end when he got his confidence back & the NL's rider of the year, gives me, & I would think most of our fans, big smiles & optimism for 2020. But we do suffer our fair share of injuries so I hope they are kept to a minimum.

    Diamonds should have been crowned League Winners And the Scorpions Playoff Winners

    ".......since they won the little knockout trophy at the end of 2012 when the Diamonds were LEAGUE winners " The "Knockout Cup" is the ONLY trophy I know of that we race for . Since the play offs were introduced, everyone knew what they were racing for, The Winners Trophy & that is what all records will show. However, I do agree that the League winners should receive something for their achievement & the playoff winners receive their trophy & medals.

    Hi tellboy. nice to be missed I agree with what you say and to a great extent Buster is bound by what the rest of British, and indeed world speedway does. I'm a realist and from past conversations with Buster know he doesn't/didn't agree with quite a few things himself but even as BSPA supreme couldn't change them. If I had to pick just one thing that IMHO would improve things (and boy how big is the choice) it would be to reduce the power of the engines so it's rider skill that wins races and not tuner's tinkering. Going back into hibernation again now but who knows a visit from Nicki in 2020 might just tempt me back to Saddlebow Road

    That's exactly what GB Speedway needs ... "riders on a level playing field and they can all beat each other on any given night" .... good close racing !!!

    Hello SL haven't heard from you in a while. As g13webb said we all have differing opinions to which i agree.And he quite rightly said "who to say who is right and who is wrong".So if the promotion done everything the remoaners said it wouldn't necessarily be right would it.It could be wrong too, as who is to say they are right or wrong Like many businesses no matter how big or small the bosses 9 times out of 10 will do it their way.People in charge don't like to be told whether it's a company employing 200 people or a small business like a newsagent hey Webbo.

    Honestly guys you need stop worrying about Phil The Ace's 1-7. It's a good side and I would snap anyone's hand off if they offered me that side. In Britain there are two possibly three No.1's if Batchelor rides well. Jason Doyle, Robert Lambert are the only true No.1's and that is it. Then the rest of the riders are either one of the following. 1. Not good enough to ride in the league and are only signed to contracts because clubs ran out of points to play with 2. Is full of riders on a level playing field and they can all beat each other on any given night.

    He's definitely up there... But not better than Charlie or Craig imo... I guess we'll all just have to wait and see what the CLRC Final is Them three and Danny King probably... On paper anyway

    Well said. I would add, if things people moan about don't improve there comes a point when they think why should I care and stop moaning and more importantly stop attending. I reached said point some time ago. I rarely look at anything other than Lynn threads now and quite honestly it's the same old thing season after season. *stands back awaiting incoming missives *

    Too many double up/down riders making the standard too high for many from the NL.

    Peter Schroeck is the team manager again for the 2020 season.Not the best team manager imo,thought his use of the reserves last season wasn't what i would have done at times.But we all have different opinions anyway

    My observations at Leicester this year was that Scott Nicholls took an active mentoring role with Jack. An opportunity to extend that at Kent would seem to have been an attraction?

    I'd rate Sam Masters as superior to Charlie and Craig....just.
  20. Rockstar99

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    I'm 100% right look at Sam Masters career. Quit Championship racing to test himself abroad. He failed miserably so he's now back in the Championship full time. Jacob Thorssell you've just proven me right above. Hasn't improved for two years and the only time he did improve is when Fast Freddie took the work load off his shoulders. Much like Nick Morris at Swindon when Doyley took a lot of pressure of his shoulders. You've got a decent team but the top two aren't exactly anything to be scared of away from home.

    Charles Wright, 2019 British champion rides for Redcar Must admit, Cookie has been the best for a long time... But I think Charles may have just overtaken him... Or at least on last years evidence... Just my opinion of course Barely anything between them... You might argue that Cook's an ex GP rider, and has a higher average in the PL than Charles, but that's the past... Put them on the track right now, race them 10 times and I reckon it would finish 6/4 to Charles... On a neutral track

    But at the stages in their careers that they are at too right their averages should be increasing each season especially as the league weakens continually season after season.

    Ok Dandelion, I’m gonna take the bait...lol.........Glasgow has “2nd best” rider in the league???
  24. stevebrum

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    Wrong, the averages say different. Masters improved every year from 2016 - 2018. 7.18 to 7.92 to 8.11. It was only this season that his average dropped. Jacob climbed from 7.06 to 8.64 a huge climb in 2017 but hasn’t improved on that the past 2 seasons although he did increase his average slightly this season from 2018.

    Maybe Ben Morley and Jack Thomas didn't want to ride for Kent?

    Plymouth speedway

    Think I need to follow Plymouth a bit more closely next season considering I think of them as my second team but didn't really pay much attention last season: First of all I hope the NL even happens at all!! But if it does I think it will be much weaker than previous season... As a bit of fun, a few names I want to see return: Richard Andrews - No. 3? And captain Adam Extance No. 4? Adam Sheppard No. 2? Henry Atkins No. 5? If the limit is high enough and the rumours about him are true, I'd love to see Adam Roynon return as number 1 Then maybe James Chattin, Jamie Bursill, Tom Young or Kris Andrews as reserves? Depends on what fits obviously James and Jamie would be the ideal two Hope all goes well in the NL AGM today, for ALL teams and we start hearing team news soon Any other thoughts from people who go every week and actually know something about Plymouth speedway (Unlike me)
