    TV new deal?

    18 rounds in the Premiership? Will there be 10 sides? Otherwise, I'm interested to see what impact speedway being on free to air TV will have, even if just highlights.

    Any chance of a face lift on the inside of the magazine now, given the outside has been attempted?

    I don't think you'd need peak Holder or Ward, or even any GP riders. Grajczonek, Kurtz and Holder have been PL number ones, Klindt/Covatti are extremely good second/third heatleaders and even Wells would clean up at reserve. I don't think any PL side could beat Poole and I would confidently say Newcastle would have 0 chance - they can't even beat most PL sides.

    Of course, my mistake, got my Andersens and Jensens mixed up.

    Would you ever consider writing a book about your time in speedway? I'd like to see more after Woffinden's effort.

    Honestly? Who would Bickley/Bailey/Jensen x2 beat often enough in the Poole side to give them a run for their money? The same applies to Leicester, although they might have a slightly better chance. The gap is smaller now than it was but the top 4 in the EL would beat any PL side. Their top 5s are essentially all PL number ones, if not more. FWIW, even though I disagree, I can see Shovlar's point. It's like a Premiership side dropping to league one and then expecting all their fans to show up - being a "die hard" isn't enough for some.

    Well done the S.C.B.

    The reaction from the rider suggests it was something quite serious - could this have been to do with Sam Norris's unfortunate accident?

    Leicester 2019

    As predictable as it would be if Kemp signed for Leicester, there must be some action from the BSPA to stop this type of thing in future. We thought the relegation playoff was bad, it's only getting worse!

    Always felt THJ would've been a real top rider but something just didn't seem right. Even though he did achieve GP status, I think he was never quite the same after his father's untimely death.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Mildenhall 2007 v Birmingham 2019 would be a match for the ages. 27 a side.

    Sheffield 2019

    There must be more to this than meets the eye. Sheffield have done nothing proactive all season, including giving a rider to Leicester, so why bother with a needless change now when the season is over?

    Newcastle 2019

    You just have to understand that not everyone is such an important person and gets all the inside information ().
  13. Ha, my mistake. Top 9 / top 10.
  14. Can't disagree with much of that. Perhaps I am being too harsh, for the reasons you state, and Iversen is quite decent to watch. It'd just be nice to have some fresh blood to see what someone else can do. At least we have Fricke...
  15. We do know what? We know that they wouldn't win a GP do we? Pontus Aspgren was an easy race away from beating them last night so it's hardly cast iron evidence. Don't twist my words. I think you'd struggle to find anyone who would legitimately claim Pontus Aspgren is a better rider than those 2, but those 2 also show no hope of ever winning a GP again on current form. Don't think that's ever been disputed, certainly not by me. As I've said before on here though, top 10 is fairly tight, add Woffinden and it'd be a top 11. Yet still the same 3 riders are bottom or near enough bottom.
