    Sheffield 2019

    very happy with this line up, i think we will be entertained at home this season with these guys, play off spot beckons for us.... but.... we have 3 top heat leaders that will score points home and away, kasper, who could prove the trump card in this league and add 2 pts onto his average, then we have 3 guys who we should not heap to much pressure on, drew - should also add 2 pts maybe upto 3 at least on his average, broc - showed last season that he can ride, but suffered machine problems after a good start, capable of adding a full point on his starting average. zaine - most first year aussies return an average of between 4-5, I would be happy with this figure. question is - who will ride at number 2? personally I would go for broc, if only to allow zaine time to settle in through the easier reserve berth. as injuries play a big part in this sport now, if these guys can stay injury free we are in for one hell of a ride come the end of the season.

    I reckon that could be the team,and would be quite happy to go with that 7,dimi berge has been mentioned by a few and I for one would love to see him back at Sheffield but he has signed to ride in Poland,so I reckon we would be out of his plans more than him out of ours.

    i think your all forgetting a 2.5% reduction for roo boy having started in the conference for Sheffield.

    Scunthorpe 2019

    I reckon it should be 2.64 with his reduction of 2.5%

    Sheffield 2019

    assuming kyle uses his CL average,we could go with- 1.howarth....6.95 2.andersen...5.20 3.douglas....6.12 4.kurtz.........5.91 5.bates........6.54 6.kennedy....5.20 7.lawlor.......2.00 total....37.92

    berge has signed a deal with a polish club so that would rule him out for us.

    Sheffield 2019

    so what averages will everyone be using for next year its a bit unclear on the bspa website. will kyle who finished with a championship average of 6.95, have to use his premiership average of 5.16, which converts into 7.74????? a strange one could be rory schlein 8.59 CL average, but a converted prem ave of 12.00, they need to come out and say which set is going to be used, until messrs chapman and godfrey need to fit someone in.

    Sheffield 2019

    not enthralled by the changes announced by the bspa, but 38 pts as a limit, that is going to put quite a few riders out of a job I reckon, and sundays? hmm, might suit myself better as I wont have to rush from work on a Thursday for a 7.30 start, lets hope we have a start time of 6pm or 6.30 as any later than that is not going to pull many kids through the gate.
  12. i reckon 500 is a generous figure too, quite surprised by the size of the crowd given it was the last meeting, and a cup final too.

    Sheffield 2019

    well the correct grammar you are looking for then. is previous two and not past two,that is why i stated shanesy.
  14. romans lovechild

    Sheffield 2019

    if your talking facts....which i believe you are,dont forget james shanes has improved on his starting average.
  15. romans lovechild

    Sheffield 2019

    it could be scott nicholls.
  16. romans lovechild

    Sheffield 2018

    i would go for josh auty or ben barker,

    Sheffield 2018

    if you think about it,georgie has been travelling from down south for home meetings,with little reward pointswise,has a young family and could have lost his driver for this season,we dont know, i would think it has been more of georgies doing than the promotions, and lawlor in the side we will not have to pay any loan fees as we are developing one of our own assets,and giving a young brit a team place.

    Ipswich 2018

    i feel saddened when any brit loses a team place,i know some people will say theyre running a business and need results,but these "so called" business men are in charge of british speedway, when are they going to try and put the great back into britain, dicarding an up and coming young brit on around 3.5 avge,and replacing him with an argentinian journeyman with around a 4.2 avge does nothing in the long run for british speedway, we should have a rule that both reserves should be brits with a combined avge of around 6.5/7 pts, that way openings would be there for our youngsters to develop and improve instead of stagnating at national league level before finally realising their ambition has been taken from them and hanging up their kevlars. these guys running our sport are the ones killing it, we need an independent governing body.

    Sheffield 2018

    then its tough,they either tow the line or sell up, turkeys dont get to vote for christmas in real life,but our promoters do. if there was an independent governing body they would surely make sure the sport is cost effective.so that scenario probably would not arise.
  20. romans lovechild

    Sheffield 2018

    the problem with people having a bash at the promoters is due to them being in charge of the sport, football fans have the f.a. or fifa to complain about,cricket fans have the ecb to moan at, we have a sport run by the promoters, i understand the reasons why less racenights were voted through,we have rules tinkered with mid-season,but now in the 21st century is it not time for the sport to have its own independent governing body.
  21. romans lovechild

    Sheffield 2018

    i dont attend many meetings away,therefore im not really interested in away meetings, i attend my speedway to be entertained and not watch gate and go,to even think of dispensing with lasse would be absolutely stupid in my eyes,one of the top 10 entertainers around owlerton in the last 40 years,and his rides around owlerton should get the fans purring with delight. it seems in these times that a lot of people concerned with the sport in an administrative way or be it spectator wise,have a win at all costs mentality,soon if a team does not win anything in any given season it will be going like football and sacking the manager. edit.... oh and that nicol kid can ride a bike for the doubters.

    not very professional by any employer to get rid of one person by text and another by a facebook message,when the majority of employers in this country will not accept an absence at work via text, tut tut somerset.

    Eastbourne 2018

    riding for sheffield last season certainly showed us that he has the ability to succeed in the 2nd tier,was taken in on the terraces at owlerton as a fine prospect and i know most were dissapointed when he was not in our starting line up. but i know what you mean about the travelling.
  24. romans lovechild

    Sheffield 2018

    i do hope that nicol is able to score around 4/5 points per meeting,but having travelled half way around the world to be here the guy has to have ambition to crack on in his career,as for georgie im glad to see him back but feel sorry for jack,hope that georgie can score points cos i believe he would have had to give up his teamplace at eastbourne in signing for us and will now be only riding in one league and hope this does not affect his confidence.
  25. romans lovechild

    Sheffield v Workington SGBCL 24/5/18 @ 19.30

    i reckon nathan could ride at no.2 comfortably in this league and move todd to 4.
