    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    God help you if you end up with Newman or Morris at 1. I can see Birmingham being one of the teams making a change pretty early on.

    Workington 2019

    I'd still argue in the case of losing your job I still don't see it as remotely the same. Yeah, riders might pick up places later in the season, but it's not a guarantee and life doesn't stop for these riders. Who are we to know these riders don't rely on these jobs? They live in the here and now, and for the likes of McDonald, Lambert and Campton you have to feel awful for. In Campton case, he's in the absolute worst position because it's looking at 2 years out with how the visas work. Again, I do feel sympathy and you know I'd be heartbroken if Sheffield closed. I am 100% sympathetic to their case, but you'll never convince me that the riders haven't been hit hardest by this.

    Workington 2019

    You try reading Mason Campton article and tell me again that it's harder on the fans than the riders. I have full sympathy for the workington loyals. But I'm sorry, nothing compares to losing a job or in Campton case, a career.

    Workington 2019

    Don't talk absolute rubbish. The lad has lost his job and as hard as it is for the fans, it's nothing compared to the riders. It's their livelihood and we're at a point now where it's getting harder and harder each year to truly make a living in speedway. And let's not pretend that Bickley hasn't been loyal to workington. It says a lot when a rider admits he was aware the situation wasn't good, more than likely had offers elsewhere and still sticks with them. That speaks great volume to a young rider like Kyle who could've easily moved on but didn't and unfortunately he's now paying the price. Out of all of the riders he's probably the most fortunate as he is more likely to pick up another team. But until he has another team, then it simply means nothing.

    Nah I'm sorry. I don't buy the whole "use it or lose it" speedway is way beyond point now. The diehards don't cut it anymore. Promoters need to work on the sport and make it worth the admission and the only way they're going to do that is working on the overall presentation and quality. If it's not there, the sport will die regardless. The sport is absolutely on its arse and scaremongering has never saved a club and it never will.

    Workington 2019

    Feel desperately sorry for the fans and riders at workington. After years of threats of closure it's finally happened, and probably at the least expected time... You'd think after a treble winning season the place would be absolutely buzzing with fans old and new? Surely this should have been the basis to build a new fan base and gather lots of momentum from a massively successful season? Evidently something very wrong from October to now. But if there was any suggestion that Workington couldn't run the season, then they never should have set up with the intention. It's not fair on the fans, the riders or quite frankly, the other teams that have set out their stall for the season ahead. I do hope Workington are back next season in some capacity but I think it'll take someone with very deep pockets to get them up and running again.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Thought it was a joke when people said Chessell was signing. Must've spent all the budget on cookie...

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    He was an Ipswich asset but looks to have gone to Birmingham full time. Very poor signing, should do better if he's at reserve, but there are far better riders than Paco out there.

    Think with the standard of the league this season, Flint should be more then fine.

    Honestly I think only thing that lets it down is Gappmaier. Just don't rate him if I'm honest. But if Garcia can ride to the level he was at the back end of last season then it might not even be an issue. It's just if Fernando will do the business in main body of the team.

    Garcia and Flint are a very good reserve pairing in this league. Could easily be a season of swapping between Gappmaier and Garcia for that number 6 spot and flint should be one of the better number 7's in this league. Interesting side built by Berwick, but one that should do the business round Shielfield
