    Newcastle 2020

    Can we still buy any of the GRT media DVDs anywhere?
  2. It'd be better than nothing but any champion would have a massive asterisk against their name and wouldn't be a true champion.

    Corona virus

    I see the horse racing authorities are looking at a limit on field sizes and only allowing more experienced/competent jockeys to ride - could British speedway try this as a means to get through? Only Premiership speedway with a strict criteria on who can ride? Injuries are part and parcel of the sport but anything that can be done to limit them, and in turn NHS resources, must be considered.
  4. It's so tiresome. He isn't just a negative speedway fan, he's a negative speedway fan who goes to the ends of the earth, and is often wrong, to attempt to prove his point.
  5. Has any speedway meeting *ever* started on time?

    Birmingham Brummies 2020

    Would love to know what baggage Pedersen and Gollob have to be lumped in with that lot.
  7. Posted this on twitter yesterday, a speedway slant on the football game going around social media - anyone fancy a go? A speedway slant. 7 riders, 7 nationalities, must have ridden for at least one British club and none can have ridden for the same British club at any point in time (inc 2020). Holder Lindgren F Zmarzlik MJJ Bellego Bondarenko Fox Any more guesses?

    Birmingham Brummies 2020

    Interesting piece on Garrity's pre-season preparations https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/man-charged-after-vulnerable-woman-18119394

    Big fan of Edinburgh putting on the most obscure matches as opposed to a run of the mill league match.

    What problems do they cause, Philip? Not a dig, I'm just genuinely curious as it seems fine for TV subscriptions, car tax and a lot of other things.

    So much negativity. Every post I see you put on here is negative or putting a downer on something. Everything might be cancelled but no harm in some positivity.

    Sky and Bt sports

    Too true. I've been quite happy with BT until now and I've never really been fussed about moving to Sky, but this has changed all that. 30 days notice going in as soon as I can get through to their xal centre!

    ben fund line up

    The statements that have been made about this year's Ben Fund, including those above, have been nothing short of a horror show. The principle of the meeting is great and I'm sure everyone would like to see hundreds of thousands raised, but the line up is shocking, and to expect people to just turn up is not a great advertisement. Never mind the fact it's in Scunthorpe, in March, in the middle of a global pandemic.

    Stuart Robson

    I'd say that considering his career that's quite a poor line up, hopefully there's a big crowd.
  15. Has an actual speedway official honestly just said this in a press release? "In a few years time people will have forgotten about Danny (Ayres) and his family, Ricky (Ashworth) and Garry (Stead) but the Ben Fund won’t. And like all the paraplegics from speedway in the country they will be looked after on a regular basis." Absolutely disgraceful. http://www.speedwaygb.co.uk/news.php?extend.37968

    At least NP has never been booted out of a GP for race fixing.

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    I'd argue on more or less every track. Worrall is nothing more than a Premier League heatleader now (not even a number one). Would Worrall be competitive in a Speedway of Nations final, never mind score double figures? No.

    Newcastle 2020

    Usually a negative when people stick up for someone using their effort as their best quality. Surely it's expected that any manager would give their all, that's nothing special. If effort is his biggest quality then he can't have much else to write home about.
  19. It'd be the ultimate irony, and some would say absolutely superb.
  20. Woffinden or Zmarzlik for me.

    Newcastle 2020

    Summed it up perfectly. Some very strange decisions being made. It's good that there are new owners and a new lease of life afforded to the club, but not of it ends up as the next Stole or similar, fighting for the wooden spoon every year.

    Poland fixtures 2020

    I don't suppose you've spotted any Polish meetings scheduled for 02/05, have you? We're in Gorzow from 30/04-03/05 to see the Gorzow-Czestochowa on the 01/05 but it'd be nice to catch some more the day after.

    Newcastle 2020

    As always, you can't fault the new promotion for giving it their best (and delivering already, to some extent). However, you're pretty much spot on, it does look like someone a high school pupil would design for a project. I suppose we can only hope it improves as time goes on and further feedback is given.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    It'd be good to see Worrall back to where he was, he really did look like he could kick on til he was fenced in 2018. It's a shame it didn't work for him at Newcastle but it'd be good for Britain to have another decent rider in the mix.
