  1. I think Perks is a certainty and i have really enjoyed watching him ride he will make more progress next year.Douglas on his average is a rider that interests me would love him to come to. But every club will be interested he is a rider who in time will cope with being in a top five.

    You dont get it do you ??? you never have lets give you an example Nicki Pedersen / Tomasz Gollob.Facts as you said says Nicki was the better rider !!! roll of honour says that as well 3 titles to 1 my OPINION only says Gollob was the better rider.You need to stop talking down to people and take a chill pill the way you respond to Gustix sometimes is shocking at times.

    There are other fans in the Country who saw alot more of Peter Collins than you and i who still believe that Peter was the better rider.Does that make make them stupid??? are there opinions irrelevant?? you don't realise what a stupid comment that was to make.
  4. To be honest that meeting should not of been on and hand on heart Wolves were very unlucky.The track conditions made it a real leveller for us,and despite the riders putting on a great show it was a poor spectacle game over now but Wolves will keep battling tonight.

    FACTS right!!!! and my irrelevant opinion how arrogant is that what makes your opinion more relevant.??? Your posts are your opinions nothing more nothing less and to be honest they mean nothing to me so i suggest you go and have a good old rest up take a chill pill or to.

    So Woffinden who has hardly been Mr dedication to British speedway over the years decides he will mock Rossiter live on tv. That is big of him Woffinden should have a say but no more he feels his input knows best but he is not a messiah far from it.That interview showed me what he is about about himself it always has been.This new British set up has loads to do blame Rossiter blame British speedway but we are light years behind i except that .I like like the young guns coming through and hopefully a Palin, Gilkes, ( etc) comes through the system and move us forward.

    1985 was PC a little past his best Falcace ??? not a great example how many years and times had he put England first for little financial reward.? Woffinden won't even ride in a British final yet commentates and probably get's paid for doing so did he think sod this a Danny King or Charlie Wright might come out of the woodwork and beat him.?

    I actually enjoy watching modern day racing so your point about rose tinted glasses is totally wrong.I actually preferred racing in yesteryear but that is my prerogative and my right as you have the right to your opinion.As for Rossiter do you know him???? for me he was treated shabbily and it did not end nicely.What Tai did to him Rossiter on tv was a disgrace a gutless act why not speak to him personally privately keeping it in house.?

    Of course bruno great point but do you think he is as passionate about riding for his Country as Peter was.?

    When you rate Peter Collins you have to like many others have done take into consideration what he won for England is that not true.?? Tai comes knowhere near in that respect a great rider no doubt but any better no.

    I except him admire him but his overall commitment to England puts him behind Craven and Collins.

    I agree with that and this is how it is hard to compare because those riders apart from Hancock have only rode in a GPS series.Personally the way the series is now I believe to win three world titles on a one off night was harder than winning three in the series just my point of view.

    Enjoy him?? it is a pity that he only rides for England when it suits him and when was the last time he rode in the Benevolent fund meeting? Great rider for HIS time but i cannot compare him to both the PC s .

    Do you believe this era is better than the one i described ??? i think you have given me my answer.Like you i have seen a alot of these riders over the years i watch Doyle regular and enjoy his skill immensely and Woffinden is a great rider but compared to some of yesteryear riders Woffinden is no way top of my list.

    Do you think it is a greater achievement Norbold ? personally i believe they are two different disiplines and winning either way both are great achievements in there own right.Going back to Collins he rode in an era where you had two superstars ( ie) Mauger and Olsen who were both capable of dominating a decade PC broke that to an exstent and along with Michanek (class) made that period in speedway very strong.Afterwards came along a young Lee and who knows what Tommy Jansson might of achieved ? a future champion no doubt about that.

    Collins for me was by far the superior to Woffinden from coming from the back a terrific sight his sublime pass of Simmo in 1976 a typical example.

    I can't disagree with that Steve.
  21. With the season nearly over in November there has to be discussion and changes will it happen though.? I am not hopeful to be honest i hope i am wrong the three thing's i would like to see happen are. 1./ at least 10 teams in the Premiership ( pref 12) 2./ Premiership and Championship teams to have at least one young Brit at reserve. 3/.Riders to have one average only including bonus points not a rolling average changing only at the last day of every month any thoughts.!!

    Gustix as Steve said this is a really enjoyable thread great to hear other people's views and sorry if i went off course on the thread.

    2020 Wildcards

    He has competed at the highest level and done well and for me is easily a top 16 rider.

    The point Iris made about Per Jonsson and your perception of a rider is spot on i am guilty of a bias which is positive towards Lee.As Iris was not totally convinced of Per mainly of his experience seeing live the same for me can be said of Tony Rickardsson.I see plenty of him and his achievements are remarkable yet i never really took to him don't know why because he was a decent chap as well.
