    Glasgow 2020

    Saw something on the news earlier, but I'm sure the reporter said the Scottish government had "advised" to not go ahead if 500+. Even if mandatory, with speedways well-known aversion to making attendance figures known, it will likely be the case that, remarkably, all fixtures will have an attendance figure of 499.

    I think he often produces good, informed output. It's just the lapses into narky self-importance which spoils it, which is a shame.

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    As an octagenerian, it is good to see Peterborough giving two young, under-30 riders the chance to prove themselves and gain experience. I hope they both progress and draw benefit from being in this team and go on to be cornerstones of the team for many years.

    He probably wants to hang out with Mark Webber

    Has Gollob made a miraculous recovery?

    Danny Ayres RIP

    Awful. What stunningly sad news. RIP

    This sort of situation is where second halves used to be so good. They would give the likes of Bowtell and Hume that chance to take on the Aussie newcomers and lay claim to the team places (and vice versa). So would opening up the NDL to first-time Australians provide such an opportunity for the Brits to prove their mettle by beating them and prove they are worth putting into the CL teams at the expense of the incumbent Aussies?

    Can Stef Nielsen still be considered to be "young" ?

    Wolverhampton 2020

    If Wolves are keen to avoid upsetting, or developing Nicol, presumably as they see him figuring in future years, isn't there a bit of a snag with that? I'm presuming that Nicol is an "asset" of Sheffield, and so in future seasons he could be included in their team, regardless of any "investment" Wolves have made in developing him. Unless Wolves have or are about to pay a transfer fee to Sheffield?

    I certainly wouldn't advocate signing the both of them!

    Am I right in saying that Nathan Greaves and Danyon Hume are not yet announced by any Championship team?

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    He's brawny and certainly has more timber these days, compared to the flat-race jockeys like Tungate who can just hang off the bike. If he moved to the USA, Scott Nicholls could go on riding and winning for many a year!

    Iversen? More likely to be 2021, after he finally gets the heave-ho from the Grand Prix. You don't want to have him this year anyways, would struggle to average over 7

    Wolverhampton 2020

    Will Wolves make a pre-season change and replace Nicol with Nicholls?

    Championship Fours 2020

    Due to the strict time limit imposed on parking at Leicester, and to help meet anticipated demand levels, free parking will be available at both Peterborough and Sheffield speedway stadia, with free shuttle buses provided to and from Leicester.
