    Extraleague 2020 odds

    It's clearly an error, you can back them with +6 start @ 10/11, I'm guessing it's supposed to be 21/10, if someone contacted them and pointed it out, they'd change it.
  2. Quiet right, difference is, she didn't roll over and let the f***ers win.

    First things first, he'll be tuning in to the Robins Youtube channel tonight at 18:30 to enjoy the 2012 Elite Lge Championship all over again.

    Swindon Robins 2020

    It's always difficult comparing riders from different eras due to variables and bias but I think I'd lean towards the riders from 2007 in those particular match ups and as a whole the 2007 side (despite how dominate the 2019 team was) wins hands down for me largely down to the 2 reserves and relative strength of opposition sides. TC 6.12 v AE 6.49 (final season averages). Both spent the majority of the season riding in the #2 position and finished with similar averages, whilst I have no doubt Ellis will go on to be the better rider and he would be my pick purely on his youth and potential, there really was little between them in their contributions for the seasons in question. CG 7.13 v RJ 7.86. Another difficult choice, both exciting to watch and strong middle order riders, Gjedde had a month at reserve mid season and i think probably rode in every position bar #1 at some stage but he'd be my pick simply based on his extra experience and the fact he'd been an established top flight rider for a number of seasons over RJ who has only had half a season at this stage. SU 7.11 v TM 6.21. Controversial here I'm sure, Tobi is a crowd favourite, hugely entertaining to watch and we all love him, I'd certainly want him in my team every season on such an average, but if it came to a straight choice between the 2 at this particular stage of their careers it'd be Seba for me all day long, he represented his country the previous year (no mean feat), filled the #3 position when your 2nd best rider had too (his main adversaries that year would have been Kasprzak, Pedersen B, Screen, Schlein/Harris, Bjerre/NKI, Zagar, Louis, Norris, Hamill and Pepe) and upped his average to 9.31 early on after a blistering start to the campaign before tailing off slightly after a falling out with riding partner Gjedde and a wrist injury sustained at Ipswich in the mid summer.

    Swindon Robins 2020

    You only have to look at the SGB website archive section for your answer, the 2007 side finished with a team average of 47.70 and won all 18 home fixtures in a considerably tougher league, last years team finished with a combined 46.34. We were all disappointed with how the 2007 season finished up but your memory is obviously only fixed on the end of season performance, the team were by and large superb home (hitting 50+ in 16 of the 18 fixtures) and away (8 wins from 18) until late in the season where they lost a handful of away fixtures on the run in and completely fell apart in the away leg of the Grand Final. As for Mooro it's all relative to ability, he appeared to be unable to gate because of the quality of opposition, if he was riding in the current set up he'd be a trump card at reserve and would more likely be a steady 2nd string.

    Whilst I don't want to get into an argument about the sport of Greyhound Racing, that comment just isn't true, last summer during the warmest of weather a number of meetings were cancelled in the South of the country for welfare reasons.

    Poole 2020

    Being bottom of the PL for a couple of seasons and then winning the CL would be the key to crowd levels there, nothing to do with entertainment at all, the fickle love a winner.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    That was the year the Play Offs were reduced from 6 places back to 4 mid season, shortly after the shenanigans at the Abbey, so not totally unfounded.

    Well there's half a dozen fans on the Sheffield section already suggesting they''ll be enticed..........you lot enjoy your '4 blokes going round in circles' and the 'added variety' that those additional 4 teams will bring in the CL.

    Poole 2020

    F***ing hell you've posted some sh*t on this forum but that's right up there, it's been 10 yrs since Poole brought a following that couldn't be accommodated on a skateboard and since the days of Ward and Holder the additional home fans can be counted on one hand, I for one won't miss the Poole 'Pisstaking' Pirates one iota from the top league.

    I didn't say those clubs had to close but you say it yourself, it's unlikely to be sustainable, if they can't get 500+ paying spectators on a regular basis then their natural place should be the NL. You cannot expect the sport to be successful by settling for the lowest common denominator and this constant race to the bottom has and will see everyone suffer, too many seem to accept that the sport is done in this country and it's about getting out of it as much as you can before it dies its slow painful death, I disagree, many sports have been turned around in recent years, including Rugby League, Cricket and Darts and there is still hope for Speedway too, I don't have all the answers but bowing to the weakest is certainly not one of them.

    Just like his Play Off record against Swindon.

    If you think the way forward for the sport is running at the current CL level in dilapidated stadiums with 3/400 in attendance it's not me who's delusional, how can the sport possibly move forward form there? What other sport, business or brand would so readily accept such mediocrity for its product? I realise there isn't a lot of money about but we'd be in a much better position with 10/12 or 14 teams of reasonable strength, rather than 20 clubs all striving to be the best of the lowest level possible.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    No......you've got Adam Ellis a 3rd HL in the PL, 4 x PL reserves in Worrall, Allen, Nicol and Kurtz and 1 rider that isn't anywhere near PL standard in Gilkes. I'm not sure if you're a troll or one of the idiots that thinks all is well with CL speedway in the UK, but the F***wits that keep on about all we need is 4 blokes going round in circles is the reason the sports on its knees in this country.

    And people really think there's nothing between the PL and CL!!
