  1. Whether he would want to do it is a different matter, but I'd like to throw Mark Loram's name out there. I think looking at the fact that for at least another 5 years Tai will be top dog, so with that in mind Pete Adams does seem the logical choice.
  2. Can you please not bring Chunky and Sidneys thread back on topic... lol

    NL Pairs August 25th

    Yeah, could be a couple of suspensions for Cradley here. Never understood why a speedway rider or any sportsperson (pro or amateur) would book a holiday during the season (the exception being family weddings or similar) , shows complete disrespect to your team mates and club fans. (Unless you do an Armo and fly back from your Holiday to ride...)

    Kent v Belle Vue 19th

    If Mulford can stay upright early on, and his machinery is ok the he should be good for double figures from his 7 rides tbh. If Mulford matches Baileys scoring, and The Jenkins/Gilkes partnership outscores the Palin/Phillips partnership then Kent can still do this.

    Mildenhall v Kent 18th Aug

    Having spoken with Jason Pipe earlier this year, a new rule was introduced to stop riders riding a large part of the season but not doing enough league fixtures to get average. So next season my understanding is that all his competitive rides will count and by my calculations he has scored 72 point from 56 rides which would give him a starting average of around 5.18. Thankfully still good value, and wont leave him struggling to get a team.

    Assume Cradley will need a rider change now.

    Think kent must have one of the most cursed seasons in existence.

    With Belle vue set to be demolished this winter, this leaves the brisca stock car community another shale track down. And bradford used to attrack big grids and crowds for all stick car classes and indeed one massive banger event a year So if the two sports can get a cohesive joint proposal together, something may come of it.

    Speedway Promotion or Lack of it.

    Although in Peterboroughs case, without the "delusional" owner there would be no speedway at all.
  10. Most peoples formulas have Kemp as some one that should be there. I mean no disrespect to either Bomber or Kingy but I feel that they should almost be embarrassed to accept a reserve birth at thier stages of their careers. Both have won races at cardiff, so a night sat in the pits watching really does nothing for them. But for a young talent just sitting in the pits with the gp boys would be massive experience and the opportunity to ride in front of the packed stadium would be inspirational for these lads. Someone who finished in 5th and without the serious injury last season would of had a shot in the gp qualifiers is stevie Worrall. For him the opportunity to get a ride could put him on the radar in poland and Sweden and help his career move on to the next level.

    I dont think we can hold jake back to much as it stands a couple of defeats to Mildenhall and Belle Vue Monday would leave qualification for the play offs no means a certainty.

    Belle Vue v Leicester 8/8/19

    I just think it's simple, if you sign for Buxton first they have priority. Even if Poole then sign the same rider mid season, the original club must get priority. A simple fix that would cost nothing and add some credibility to the doubling up system. For the record it works both ways, if a rider signs for Scunthorpe first, and has a bit of a dip and takes a NL birth at Stoke to regain confidence, then Scunthorpe should always have priority.

    Belle Vue v Leicester 8/8/19

    It's the same as when Ipswich signed Nathan Greaves who rode for the Warriors. And Chris Louis then had the audacity to say he didnt realise IOW was a Thursday club.....
