    Sell me your team to Support

    For a number of clubs the profits that are produced for the catering does not go into the clubs pockets it goes into the pockets of the landlords of the stadium, and they have very little or no say in what is served up. Having viewed on FB some of the stuff that Barry Bishop eats, I would be very wary of anything that is homemade by him.

    Newcastle 2019

    Saw Macdonald at Sheffield last season at the Big Gun meeting. Very entertaining and exciting rider but also very hairy. not too sure as to whether or not the tight technical track at Newcastle would suit him. If it was me I would go with Carl Wilkinson, know the track and rides the track well.

    You might have a point.

    Newcastle 2019

    Depends how it was done if it is done via a text message yes it is wrong, if you have promised or given a contract to ride for a team, or if you have signed a contract to ride for a team, then plans are changed you should afford better communications between both parties. And doing via a text message is not the right way of going about it, whether it is a rider breaking a promise/contract or club. And for the record I did add and highlighted the word If as the only version thing I have read is the riders version.

    Newcastle 2019

    If the rider was told that his services were no longer wanted then it is a poor show from the Newcastle Promotion. Whatever the reason for releasing a rider do it via text message is wrong.

    Listening to this interview made me think, listen to the start of the interview, and how many times he says the word I.

    A relative new Co Promoter at Newcastle, maybe he has a stronger influence over team matters.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Have to agree with you, and those that are running the sport should take notice that the likes of Paulco becomes cynical. Over recent years there has been so much happened in the sport that has been unexplained or simple skulduggery, and no proper answer given as to how or why decisions have been made, that even a die in the wool fans of not just their team but speedway in general start ask questions or are sceptical.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Lets face it Glasgow were always going to bring in Kyle Bickley either now or sometime very very early in the season. And who can blame them we are all in it to win it, and if you feel you can improve the team then you going to do it. The timing of it is questionable and the reasoning for it. I throw this in to a possible reasoning for it. If Glasgow sack the rider for misconduct rather than dropping the rider maybe the loan fee than releasing the rider maybe they can get the loan fee that they would have had to pay to Sheffield for the rider would be refunded. I would love to see the riders contracts at Glasgow, because if the vaping story is true then wonder how long the contracts are would be very interesting to see.

    With a start time of Sunday's 4.30 pm as opposed to Thursdays 7.30 pm I don't think that school holidays really matter.

    Riders Who Never Made It?

    Not quite sure what you point is. I posted the comments in July 2009 which is nearly 10 years, so Josh Auty would have been 18 or 19 years old.

    Workington 2019

    Saw him at Sheffield this season in the Top Gun meeting, where the standard was around the reserve/ lower second string standard for this season's Championship. Was a bit wild but very entertaining his ride in heat 19 showed this, takes the lead drift wide into the fence. looking like he was going to come of, but somehow catapulted off the fence and shot back into the lead and won the race. To give you an idea Kyle Bickerley rode the meeting and scored 6 failed to make the Semi Final or Final. Josh scored 10 and went out in the Semi Final.

    Play off contenders

    I will go with Sheffield Somerset Eastbourne Leicester Dark Horses Redcar As people have mentioned at Sheffield we have Drew Kemp on a 2 point average, whereas in truth but for one meeting he is really a 4.5 rider, on top of that we have Kasper Andersen on a assessed 5.20 average whereas he is maybe one or two meetings away from been a 6 point rider., both Andersen and Kemp are false averages and gives a more than potential 3,5 advantage over the other teams. Eastbourne might have decent reserves at home, but with American Broc Nichol either starting or moving quickly down to reserve we have a rider that can adapt very quickly to a small technical track as he is used to riding those types of tracks in the States, he proved that last season when he cope more than adequately at Lakeside.

    Newcastle 2019

    Reasonably solid Newcastle side, and one or two names in that team who would not think of Newcastle type riders Of the last two riders. Not surprised to see Phillips name down on the team sheet with his old man one of the promoters at the club and he did a decent job when he was last there. Bjerre, good rider and kind be spectacular on his day, but is someone who is very difficult to manage and can be at times disruptive, if you can get him in the right fame of mind and happy he is capable of beating anyone, if not then you have problems and he will let you know.

    Okay to explain further. the club obviously feel that Kyle has the potential to put more on his starting average than Charles.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Fixed race nights for both leagues means that should not happen. Injuries is a different matter.

    Scunthorpe 2019

    My guess is the CLRC to be staged at Scunthorpe.

    Points limit. Building a speedway team is like building a jigsaw puzzle, the pieces have to fit. Putting Charles Wright instead of Kyle would have meant we would have been over the limit, so we would have had to make further changes. Plus last season in the past, next season is the future.
