    Workington 2019

    It's a sad situation. I feel desperately sorry for the riders who had committed and the loyal fans who have watched speedway in Cumbria for years. To the true fans it will leave a big hole in their lives. I know how much I would miss if the sport was lost in Newcastle which could easily be the case. I suppose the annoying thing is why did Workington commit to running when it was obvious there was financial problems as was stated. You can't gamble and hope the financial clout comes along later. I honestly don't know what the fix is to entice supporters through the turnstiles. Is it cost? or lack of entertainment? Just hope no other clubs go the same way and Workington can be up and running I the near future. Although I think once closed down it's even harder to start again. Here's hoping.

    Sorry just seen Dave's post with Lasse Bjerre's average

    What would Bjerre and Phillips bring the total to Steve.

    Not so sure they would have Coles back. He left on a bit of a sour note. The Newcastle riders at the time were offering him advice how to ride the track but he wouldn't listen. But who knows. Things can change. I think he has improved a bit since then but just couldn't get the hang of Brough.

    I think Phillips. Not so sure about Kus now. What's your thoughts??

    Personally I think this is the season Phillips has to start improving if he wants to make a living out of the sport. It's not as if he's a new comer. People forget he's been around for a while. I realise he had a bad injury but he needs to kick on now.

    I can see lasse Bjerre and Phillips being two of the final three riders. Bjerre used to ride Brough well but not so great lately apart from the odd decent meeting. Maybe riding Brough as a home track will bring the best out of him as he has talent. Normally I wouldn't have Phillips but with the team average now being lowered he should hold his own against most reserves as most are really just NL riders.Probably be about 7 points left and if we fill that last place with another decent rider I'll be happy.

    Good point Steve.Everyone is obviously in different financial positions. Supporters will pick and choose their meetings and it's their choice but I think the team we are putting together up to now looks competitive. We all need to get behind the club as much as possible to keep speedway going at Newcastle for the long term. Some on here won't realise what they had if the sport is lost.

    I think you will find Tero will be a very good signing for you. He rides most tracks well and I can see him upping his average. I'm disappointed he's not back at Newcastle along with a lot of diamond's fans. Good luck for the coming season.

    Looks like Richard Lawson and Ricky Wells are possibly the only what you would call championship number 1s available now. I personally would like to see Wells at Newcastle as he is a track specialist and think he would be a great signing. Although they could both be signed by someone and just haven't been confirmed yet. Fingers crossed.

    Throw Lasse Bjerre into the mix.
