    Scunthorpe 2019

    Maybe I will but my comments were based on those of a leading journalist and an interview with a rider who seemed to know about and accept the situation. As we've seen before though, minds can be changed.

    That's about the strength the Premiership will be next year, so three clubs can afford to move up and three NL clubs can afford to move into the Championship. Either that or several clubs pack up now! Look at the empty terraces and face reality.

    Is Speedway still viable in the UK?

    You can't scrap the BSPA, they own the sport in this country and I can't imagine them putting the control of their investments into someone else's hands. There are plans to reduce rider standards in order to reduce costs, the grumblers on here are already moaning that admission prices should be reduced as a consequence but that would simply defeat the object. I can see the sport going semi-pro eventually but I think it'll continue.

    The Championship won't have teams to that strength next year.

    Sheffield 2019

    They have already had several meetings about it, It'll be two leagues, the upper about the current Championship strength and the lower below that. Current levels are unsustainable with the crowd and sponsorship levels.
  6. That could be a good move.

    I think team average will be more like 32-5 next year.
  8. Saw a heat and the final on Twitter, it didn't exactly look like a big crowd.
  9. "Dumbing down" is certain for next year, the plan being to have ten Premiership sides at about the Current Championship level and a Much reduced Championship average, with probably three national league sides moving up.

    Newcastle 2018

    Not having been there, I have no idea whether he was blameless, incompetent or evil. The general opinion seems to be that he was to blame but I made no mention of him or the incident.

    So he suffered multiple fractures did he?

    is doubling up leading to fatigue and injuries?

    It's certainly leading to fan fatigue.

    Kings Lynn v Poole Wednesday August 29th

    Yet the Premiership is now actively trying to entice several Championship clubs to fortify it's rather pathetic current number. I wouldn't be surprised if fixed race nights are abandoned and the current strength of Championship clubs becomes the new top level, as Championship sides reduce their maximum averages even further. You have to go with what pays, which means going with their most successful race night/day for all clubs.
  14. Irrespective of what happened to Bewley, if a rider starts thinking about not taking any risks he should be stopping at home.... Then again, you're only guessing anyway.
