  1. You've riled up Sidney junior now as well
  2. Sounds like this attitude has only been exacerbated by his wife going from social media postings. She seems even more sensitive to criticism of Bomber than he is!
  3. We need someone to coach the riders and get the best out of them, while making sensible tactical decisions. It's becoming quite common now, especially in European football, to have a technical/business person dealing with all the background stuff and a head coach to deal with the sports side.

    Was it not the case that quite a few promoters struck (with her)?
  5. What a very strange man he is. The obsession with Auty is bordering on being disturbing.

    Cradley Heathens 2019

    Shocking, if true. Pearson is becoming a scourge on British speedway in this day and age.
  7. You've probably got to give Doyle at least one wildcard based on his recent past but I have a suspicion he might be beginning to chart the same path as Holder and won't be a GP rider in 2-3 years from now. I think Doyle is a great rider and definitely deserved the world title he won (and probably the one he didn't), but given his turnaround from PL rider with no application to World Champ, I wonder just how difficult it is to maintain that level of dedication/application once you've achieved what you set out to do? He's also a rider who's had terrible luck with injuries which must surely catch up eventually.

    Ipswich - Swindon 15 08 19

    I agree that nobody sets to sign a poor side, but if you do happen to do that then I feel you should live with the consequences. Looking at it objectively, the signing of Harris was probably never going to end well and therefore Ipswich should not be allowed to replace an 8 point rider with a new 8 point rider, because their original selection has dropped 3 points off his average.

    Ipswich - Swindon 15 08 19

    So basically, if you sign a naff team then you can sack them all and have another go with the full limit still in play?
  10. Another 3 man away side, another home defeat for Newcastle.
  11. It's a tricky one I suppose. I've been an advocate of not allowing the bottom 9-15 in the challenge before, but at the end of the day they probably are amongst the world's top riders. Just gets a bit tiresome watching Zagar, Iversen and Lindback have 1 good meeting in 5, with no genuine hope of ever becoming World Champion.

    Keep battling for the rest of us, hopefully they'll go ahead with their threat and delete their profile soon...

    TV new deal?

    Thank you for this information, nice to have it first hand from someone who genuinely knows. If the Sky money kept certain clubs afloat then I'd love to see the position of those clubs now without the money. As much as we love speedway, it paints a bleak picture if 100k is just keeping it afloat.

    TV new deal?

    What else, to ensure long term prosperity, did they do with it? Even if it wasn't entirely spent on one rider then a lot of it was. Nothing has been done to change the sport long term. 100k a club in a league of 8? 9? Will we ever see money like that again.
