    Lambert to comeback stronger.?

    It’s also worth noting that Robert won races and reached semis in the GP before his crash in the SoN which completely knocked the stuffing out of him, he was never the same after that particularly round the first two bends.

    Calm down dear! And remove that chip from your shoulder while you’re at it. Young Polish riders have always had the best kit, that’s just the way it is and stands to reason with the finances that speedway over there has, the best ones are heavily subsidised by the clubs/authorities and U21 success is demanded. That’s said without bitterness or jealousy, it’s just how it works. As said we’ll see over the next five, ten, fifteen years who turns out to be the best of the current crop. As things stand U21 results and averages don’t lie but everyone knows what a tough year Robert had and that has to be a factor. Pretty sure he will come back stronger.

    Polish U21 riders have the advantage of a bottomless pit of sponsorship meaning missile bikes and I think the reserve system in the Extraliga helps them too. We'll only find out over the next 5-10 years who is the best of those who have just graduated from the U21 scene.

    I’m not sure Britain carries much weight any more but in theory if the Extraliga discarded him and in five or six years he’s excelling in Sweden, Euros, SWC and perhaps even GP’s then of course Poland wouldn’t ignore him. Hopefully it won’t cone to that though and he starts cutting in in Poland as soon as it starts again.

    Lambert to comeback stronger.?

    He’s still very young, he seems older as he started in our Elite League at sixteen but there is every chance he hasn’t reached his peak. After an excellent 2018 a slow start and then two huge crashes prevented him kicking on further but it would be silly to rule him out of one day being a GP rider.

    Great looking suits.

    Well of course he has but you can say that about the vast majority of riders of his age and experience. What people are saying is that the signs are there that one day in the future he will be of GP standard.
  8. Well done to Charlie Baker, just a shame Max Rushden brushed it off so he could talk about Russian football

    Birmingham Brummies 2020

    I remember that meeting, 2017, think it was on telly, and pretty sure he won a race. Apart from one meeting when he scored paid 14 he seemed ill prepared during that spell with Lynn. Listen, nobody expected him to be a world beater but having signed a while ago and starting the season with everyone else I think he would have been a solid middle order man and certainly better than Grauber.

    Premiership Junior League

    Sounds like a CVS favour on a technicality. Probably something to do with Pearson too.

    Birmingham Brummies 2020

    Seems like a bit of a Jonasson free for all on here, not his fault he’s been mucked about and I think he’d have been a decent signing without setting the world alight. His exclusion certainly weakens Brum.

    It should be remembered that last season was Lidsey’s first in the UK. Every chance he could make it to the GP’s in the future and we’ll have a much better idea about that with another British term under his belt.

    Belle Vue Colts 2020

    I thought Sheffield released him as he wasn’t scoring points?

    Prediction thread

    You are probably right but only two of their twenty four league matches will be at the NSS next year. Even if they got nothing from those two meetings (and I’m not convinced they won’t) P’boro have more than enough about them to get into the top four. Can’t see any of their riders improving dramatically but they could all put a little bit on their starting figures which would give them a good chance come the business end of the season. In my opinion of course.

    It gets said every time and nobody takes any notice but stop biting FFS
