    Has Gollob made a miraculous recovery?

    Danny Ayres RIP

    Awful. What stunningly sad news. RIP

    Poole Pirates 2020

    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?

    Poole Pirates 2020

    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?

    Poole Pirates 2020

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

    Poole Pirates 2020

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

    Fuzzy chops

    Looking at those "ten years ago" pictures of various riders, on the SGB web page, the main changes seem to be addition of facial hair. From being smart and clean-cut looking, some of them now have more resemblance to bin-men on their days off. If you can grow a proper beard, like Nicolai Klindt, then by all means go for it. But too many of the others ought to buy a razor and use it.

    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!

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    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.

    Wolverhampton 2020

    What Wolves are doing is akin to a mother who gives birth to a child but buys a double baby buggy and uses it as a way of "incentivising" the child to behave itself.

    Leicester Lions 2020

    With your Sheffield connection, some personal tuition from Nicki Pedersen could be just the job?

    Leicester Lions 2020

    Who will be the Lions captain? There is no obvious choice. If either of the Thompson boys has to miss a match or two through injury, will the Lions have a 2-pointer up their sleeve ready to stand in?

    Belle Vue Aces 2020

    Thats a nifty team for your home track, should get the punters in. Shame you coudn't have fitted in Danny Ayres as well

    Places pressure on Perks to do the job of the "senior reserve" now. Is he up to it??

    Is Greg Hancock going to resume his riding career?

  22. Ricky Wells will probably just not be re-engaged by Poole. Jonasson was clearly just in no fit state to ride in the first place, was only a short term signing and so he can slip away, again. But will Poole have the balls to sack their two main failures, or will it be all pals again and everything forgotten? Playoffs are a fact of speedway life and they usually take place on difficult tracks, either doctored or weather-related. If a team decides to include snowflakes in it's team, they're just increasing the probability they will fail as a team at this time of the season.

    Hey, leave the Tory party out of this

    Leicester 2019

    Nasty case of splinters in his backside caused by sitting on the fence too much. Lying on the beach probably beats the **ck out of riding for peanuts at Sheffield and going through the motions for Peterborough, although swimming in certain parts of the Med you do literally go through other peoples motions.

    Rossiter Stands Down

    Kelvin Tatum assisted by Nigel Pearson is the obvious choice
