  1. Newcastle 2018

    1. Matej Kus 7.84 2. Dimitri Berge 6.91 3. Lewis Rose 6.49 4. Ludvig Lindgren 7.21 5. Stuart Robson 7.02 6. Ashley Morris 4.88 7. Alfie Bowtell 2.14 I'm trying, but they're all even less realistic than just having Scotty in the line up, can you tell that I am putting my jobs off?
  2. Newcastle 2018

    1. Matej Kus 7.84 2. Ashley Morris 4.88 3. Lewis Rose 6.49 4. Ludvig Lindgren 7.21 5. Stuart Robson 7.02 6. Nathan Greaves 4.51 7. Danny Ayres 4.24 Total: 42.19 It's even worse than my original suggestion lol, could have had Jacobs if he hadn't retired I don't see why Scott is any more unlikely than any other rider though, I mean we were going to go for him last year too, weren't we?
  3. Newcastle 2018

    You got to remember, we're on a tight budget... BWD and a foreigner we'd have to pay flights for would be very expensive, granted Aarnio and Lindgren won't be cheap, but not as much, and you know what you're going to get from them, they've been around all the tracks, no gamble unlike a 5.20 rider I also think Aarnio could improve his, with a good run at number 2 or 6
  4. Newcastle 2018

    I thought it was 3, and Ellis and Ashley have done more than 3 years and I've already factored in Alfie's reduction (It is 2.5%, right?)
  5. Newcastle 2018

    Unless he got a reduction (Which I'm not sure he would), Ellis wouldn't fit!! Or otherwise I would have had him in instead, although I am a pretty big fan of Aarnio
  6. Newcastle 2018

    You're right, that's no where near enough of a reshuffle before the season even starts for the Panther's promotion At least 4 of the 5 need to go I think
  7. Newcastle 2018

    I'm guessing... If we get Nicholls 1. Scott Nicholls 9.72 2. Tero Aarnio 5.02 3. Lewis Rose 6.49 4. Ludvig Lindgren 7.21 5. Stuart Robson 7.02 6. Ashley Morris 4.88 7. Alfie Bowtell 2.14 Total: 42.48 And have Josh at 8... Would also have Robson as captain, and this team would always mean that we would have a very strong reserve in Aarnio or Ashley, and we'd have a pretty solid top 4, as I'd see Lewis upping his average and Robson, Ludvig and Nicholls (just about) maintaining theirs... Maybe dropping or adding a little bit, but them staying similar... Also Alfie would be one of the better young British number 7s in the league
  8. Newcastle 2018

    I think he'd at least stay in the low 9s or high 8s, and he'd be worth more than that to the likes of Alfie and Rose maybe if we sign them... Would be a good head to have in the pits Wonder who would be the captain, Robson, Nicholls or Ludvig... Hmmm
  9. Newcastle 2018

    Where is this information coming from?
  10. And, I don't mean that in a I'm sticking up for him, I haven't heard anything about this and was just wondering why people were meeting to discuss him
  11. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    I never knew that, thanks for that information I thought it was just people who don't know what they're talking about messing up again, but it turns out that I'm that person (as usual)
  12. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    The National Development League? That's like a mix of the national league and the midland development league lol... Which one is it?
  13. Joe Jacobs

    Being in a team for a few years in a row did Ashley Morris a load of good, it'd do Joe Jacobs a lot of good also, he's a rider I'd have like to have seen at Newcastle, especially if we went down the 2 4.00 reserves route... Shame
  14. Workington 2018 .

    No, that's pre-school, it's even worse!! Please do... I will try reaaally hard to find yous, but you're not allowed to say anything until I find you
  15. Redcar 2018

    Women drivers..... Honestly, they need to get off the road and stay indoors...
  16. Redcar 2018

    What happened with Micky Dyer? Why would he be prosecuted?
  17. Workington 2018 .

    I feel like I'm back on the playground
  18. Redcar 2018

    I wouldn't mind Ellis Perks and Matej Kus at Newcastle Can't imagine Ellis Perks costing a lot either, so if we are on a tight budget, he could be a good option... And British, but will he keep Ashley at reserve? Who knows...

    How's Kenni going nowadays? The updates on him seemed to just disappear, is he back to full health and living life 'normally'? Frightening accident he had I heard people saying he was returning to Newcastle!! Does that mean he's back on a bike??? Having said that, I heard them rumours a while ago and I can't get into my head whether it was before or after the incident Doesn't he have a younger brother? Who also rides
  21. Newcastle 2018

    Well, I went on holiday, and yes, there was a bit of down time in the evenings, so we watched some dvds while relaxing, it was quite fun actually, and it got my friends and family who were there talking, so yes, it was fun I would rather do that than sit and stare at the walls while we have small talk about nothing... Don't forget Jerran Hart Yep, I know there might not be anything to say, but silence is worse than updating us about 'nothing'
  22. Newcastle 2018

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I'm glad he's got a team back in the uk, but I REALLY wanted to see him back at Brough, good luck Rene at Workington While I've been on holiday with my family in the Philippines, I've been trying to get them into speedway by watching a load of old Newcastle meetings from 2014, in some of these meetings Aaron Fox was guesting for us instead of Chris Schramm, and he looked very impressive!! And having looked at his Twitter page he still looks interested in riding over here and looks like he's keen to race!! He just needs to put some pants on and I think he'd do good at Newcastle, might be good to have an American in the side, who was the last American to actually ride for Newcastle? (Not guesting) On another note, has Mills retired? I know he's old, but last I heard, when we didn't pick him after 2014, he still was looking for a team, not suggesting him as a rider to use, just curious
  23. Newcastle 2018

    I don't care if Ludvig is a 7 point rider, a 10 point rider or a 2 point rider for the rest of his career, some of his races are entertaining to watch, and that's all I'm bothered about, entertainment, one of the most entertaining riders I've seen over the years (in my opinion) is Chris Schramm, and by the time I was watching him regularly, he was below 4 points, but he was still worth at least half of the entrance fee alone, but of course, everyone can have opinions In my opinion, Rene Bach, Ashley Morris, Stuart Robson and Ludvig Lindgren doesn't get much better for entertainment purposes, just need the interesting story of a young number 7 getting better every week (Alfie) A massive number 1 who can just blow riders away (Nichols??? Maybe they will change the rules as rumors have suggested) All of these riders would go into my dream team... But that's it, a dream lol
