    Goret is French they only abide by EU laws that suit them, otherwise anything goes!

    Premiership race nights.

    In a perfect world I would like to see the 2022 Premiership run Mondays & Wednesdays with TV meetings on Tuesdays so not to effect crowds. "Star" riders can choose between the UK or Denmark/ Sweden with the one's choosing the UK getting 2 UK meetings per week over their Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday stayover. Championship to run Thursday, Friday & Saturday with limited doubling-up. Division 3 or whatever you want to call it to run mainly Sundays & again restricted doubling-up. Not likely to happen I know......

    Newcastle Diamonds 2021

    One way local business & better off supporters could help clubs like Newcastle & Birmingham survive would be to own the air fence, tractors, graders etc. These would be available for the season BUT remain in the ownership of the "Club Guardians" I do think there are business's & supporter's willing to get involved in this way who would not just hand over a couple of grand into thin air!
  4. This news has overshadowed Peterborough's sponsorship from Saga. Apparently Rob Lyon is also in talks with McCarthy & Stone for the 2022 season "if" he can get his desired 1 to7.

    Great effort, fact is unless the Premiership have a minimum of 8 teams then the U.K. must go for just one league & with what's left run IOW type of meetings. P.S. 8 teams = 7x league x2 =14 home matches + Cup competition.

    100% agree. What I am trying to get across is in my 55 years of following speedway I had never purchased a season ticket, Crump's inclusion in the Plymouth team was the only reason I purchased that ticket. I have thoroughly enjoyed my speedway @ Plymouth in 2021 - but would not have the same desire do buy a 2022 ticket with no J.C.

    I know quite a few people who purchased season tickets purely because Jason Crump was signed. It was not the season Jason or those season ticket holders had wished for but were are we with those season ticket purchases next year?

    Steve Plymouth will never give the racing I have been accustomed too @ Somerset (RIP) but you as a Poole fan I can think of three words: POT, KETTLE & BLACK. Let us agree we are lucky we have a speedway track we can support & that neither are like Somerset or Belle Vue!

    I agree, I have spent this season sat in the NHS stand close to the starting gate & had been highly impressed by Bjarne's gating ability, so consistent & in a different class to everyone else. He must have lost his trapping gloves or more likely that special engine has gone bang or been serviced never to be the same again.

    Richard Lawson has taken a knock tonight @ Wolves - will he be riding in the 90th. & if not who will replace him?

    Ipswich 2020

    There is no doubt the Jason would make a brilliant team manager/coach but one thing I think he would want would be team training/practice facilities. Someone never giving the credit he deserved by the media for his team managing/rider development skills was Jason's grandfather Neil Street & I would expect Jason to be equally as good!!

    Leicester vs Plymouth 28 August 2021

    Sorry no, Lawson will be a shock signing for --------------? so then free to take guest bookings for Glasgow!

    Eastbourne 2020

    No lessons learned from the demise of Rye House then?

    Eastbourne 2020

    Sounds like Lawson & Brennan to Glasgow!
  15. The Crump, Pedersen gamble was not one of a few options, fact was there were no other riders available with Plymouth's late acceptance into the 2021 league. If & it's a big IF Crump is back next season on his current average watch out for some Plymouth success with Jason having a real influence on team selection & rider development.
