    We need to sign Richie immediately... Before someone else does, and before our season goes COMPLETELY away from us... And I agree, I'm very sorry Carl, weirdly you've been one of our better riders and the one I've been most impressed by (effort wise) but I'd drop you and have 1. Richie Worrall 2. Ludvig Lindgren/Tero Aarnio 3. Stuart Robson (c) 4. Ashley Morris 5. Tero Aarnio/Ludvig Lindgren 6. Matthew Wethers (maybe Carl) 7. Matej Kus I'd personally keep Ludvig at 2, but I have seen some people say Ludvig at 5, and really, it's 6 and two 3s
  2. Anyway, back to the teams... Why isn't Ludvig riding? Was he just not picked or is he riding elsewhere? Surely, Stuart, Ash, Tero and Ludvig with Matthew (or Carl, 6 and 2 3s) at reserve would have been stronger

    Would Josef "Pepe" Franc be available on Sundays? He was the first Diamond I ever saw win a race, knows Brough park well by the sounds of it and flew around in the first meeting I saw... Have a word Matej... Great amount of experience too...

    If Matej comes in as a reserve and either Matthew or Carl (harsh on both) is then replaced with a top rider (who knows who) it's a pretty good signing imo... Matej and Carl/Matthew at reserve would be very strong Don't know why everyone has such a downer on Matej, yeah he's been bad this year, but he was really good for us in 2016... If he can start replicating that again I'd be very happy, and it would mean someone like Ashley or Robbo might drop to reserve...

    Wonder what we're promised this week

    He would be if we replaced one with him... Not quite unicorn express, not in Scotland yet

    Well if we want to have a competitive season where we might win something, we're not going to do it with the team we have now, with someone replacing Rose, I know we're on a budget but that surely doesn't mean we've given up already? Kus at reserve would be worth it, especially if you partner him with someone like Matthew, very strong pairing to make up for our lack of top end strength, imagine if we got Kus riding again like 2016 at reserve?

    And I don't blame them, there's no money in speedway

    That has settled it, we need to sign him at reserve, (if he's available on Sundays??? Would he give up Czech on Sunday for us if it meant us or no uk team?) to replace Wilko or Wethers (but I know which I'd prefer) Also Rose to be replaced with a young Dane for example with sights for bringing him in for 2019 would be great, maybe we'll unearth the new Nicki/Bjarne/Kenni/Rene And with the points we have left, if we had a bit more money I'd say we drop the risky, injured Robson for a big number 1 (who would be hard to find) but this year I think we need to settle with a similar team to what we have now

    Redcar 2018

    Was a heat leader for us in 2016 and had a great season, must have been on a good run of form

    If Redcar end up dropping Kus, he is a must on a 4.76 average... Sorry Wilko but Matej and Matthew at reserve..... Yes please..... 1. Ludvig Lindgren 6.71 2. This foreigner we're talking to 5.20 3. Stuart Robson 6.65 4. Ashley Morris 5.50 5. Tero Aarnio 5.38 6. Matej Kus 4.76 7. Matthew Wethers 4.00 Total: 38.20 Would be EXTREMELY competitive, especially if Matej can start recreating his 2016 form... I know he's had a bad start to the year, but he's got it in him We'd have 8.30 points left if we took Matthew out too (if we were going to make drastic changes) A nice number 1 with the foreigner and Matej at reserve... We could make the playoffs with a team like that!! It would be: 1. 8.30 (Wolbert? Thomsen? Mikkel Michelsen? Dreaming?) 2. Ashley Morris 3. Stuart Robson 4. Ludvig Lindgren 5. Tero Aarnio 6. Matej Kus 7. Foreigner Hmmm, food for thought on a boring bank holiday Monday night...

    Maybe you'll discover twitter now and become hooked You learn something new every day... If you want anyway I haven't learned anything in years

    I agree, George is and has been a great team manager for the Diamonds for as long as I've been going and beyond... It's just so frustrating how little communication with the fans there is... I know sometimes there's nothing to say, but at this moment when we are clearly looking for new riders, a small update, even if it was just a simple twitter post would be appreciated, it would make us all feel that something is actually happening behind the scenes... I'm sure there's a lot of work going on, but when all you hear is silence for weeks on end, it gets a bit worrying

    So they work at a local McColl's?

    There's a surprise

    I reckon we won't act very quickly and we'll miss out on taking advantage of as many points as we have to play with now, hope I'm wrong
  19. I think it's just the false promises of new riders that excites the fans... And it doesn't happen... I think certain people need to learn to keep their mouths shut...
  20. So instead of saying he's retired, he has told everyone he's taking time out so we don't have to replace him? Using R/R and guests for the rest of the year is hardly going to be interesting and bring in the crowds for all the money we don't have... Any other team, if one of their riders was going to take time out would act straight away or at least communicate with their fans what the plan was...?
  21. I thought we only had 28 days or something before we couldn't use guests or R/R for a retired rider? So surely someone must be signed in place of Rose soon, how many days has it been? So much for our new riders that we were going to get in for this meeting, Roy...?
  22. That's a shame... Well at least we might win at Edinburgh then Edinburgh and Brough are both tight tracks and Kevin is more of a number 1 than any of the other riders we have...
  23. I would love to see Ellis Perks or Adam Roynon (I know he hates Brough) over Carl, no offence to Wilko but I think his time has come... He seems very keen, but he's just slowing down with age sort of thing... Maybe he should look at leading Buxton in the National League or something? I've never thought of Ludvig as a number 1, he's my favourite rider but I do agree, he should be at number 4 ideally... With a decent and consistent number 3 to partner him... It just annoys me, even last season it happened... People seem to be straight on at him before even contemplating anyone else... Ludvig, Ashley and Jake were the only Diamonds to get a race win yesterday, Carl was poorer than Ludvig, Matthew was poorer than Ludvig, but it was straight to having a go at him, without fail every meeting we lose, even when he hasn't done as worse as other riders in the team... He shouldn't be at number 1, he's in a false position and probably has the hardest job on any of the Diamonds at the minute (As will any of the riders who go to number 1 this season will)
  24. I think people can understand and criticise him for bad meetings... I just think he gets it way worse than anyone else... No one ever mentions how bad any of the other riders do... It's always straight into Lindgren for some reason, even if he isn't the lowest scorer, that's what p*sses me off about the whole Ludvig thing, he's never a number 1, we need to bring in Anders Thomsen or Kevin Wolbert or someone similar with the points we have to play with... How much longer is it until we HAVE to replace Lewis?
