    Newcastle 2018

    Looked to be a good night for Josh Embleton last night for the Brummies, paid 7. Well done.
  2. I've said the same about Newcastle having Robbo and Ludvig at 1 and 2.
  3. True, but in the previous meeting Sheffield hit us with 4 5-1's in the first 5 heats and after that it was game over, I appreciate that Sheffield riders form of late has dropped but if we start slow as usual and the fact we have no big riders to win vital heats, 13 and 15, I still say you will be too strong. I would love Newcastle to prove me wrong,
  4. Easy win for the Tigers in my eyes, even if you have lost the last 3, we are never strong at Sheffield and the Newcastle team has not performed well away from home, nice confidence boosting win for the Tigers. Probably good to face the Diamonds whilst bedding in two new riders, 60 - 30 to the Tigers, would love it to be a win for the Diamonds but just can't see where the race wins will come from, plus I think Garrity makes you stronger.
  5. So if Bjerre doesn't turn up tonight does he get banned for withholding his services?
  6. Lasse Bjerre just became available according to Twitter!!!!
  7. Workington are saying its a rearranged fixture as per the press release, is it not? I can't why either?
  8. I can't understand why we have Robbo and Ludvig as 1 and 2, surely Ludvig would be better utilised at 3 or 4 and Kus and 2??
  9. Good meeting with some interesting races. Glad to see Josh appears to have found a team spot with the Brummies.
  10. Can anyone tell me, where can you sit or stand at Glasgow, haven't been for years and just wondered whether you can stand on the back straight. Thanks

    No probs and I hope he enjoys the experience and takes a lot from the day. And I'm not jealous at all.

    Glasgow 2018

    "We can confirm this move has NOT been approved by the British Speedway Promoters’ Association at this stage." Hmmmm, is that has not or will not!!!

    Newcastle 2018

    I think he will be snapped up by somebody, probs not us.
  16. True, but its the pissing about at the back when he misses the gate that bothers me!! If he is not in front after 1 lap he doesn't seem to care.

    Newcastle 2018

    Any chance of us making a move for Richie Worrall now he is a free agent. Harsh but fair, we could drop Wilkinson (sorry Carl), put Kus at reserve and bring Richie back. Never mind #itscominghome lets have #richiescomingbacktothediamonds I appreciate that I think he has signed a contract in Poland but not sure how much racing he is getting and I believe he has setup his own Civil Engineering business to supplement his income, but could it happen. I hope so. Yes I know he is in bad form, but would still have him in the team. Thoughts?
  18. I don't understand why we have our two highest averaged riders at 1 and 2?? They looked like they couldn't ride together on Sunday as they were both chasing the same piece of track. Would it not be a better option to have Ludvig at 5 or 3 and Aarnio or Kus at 2. I still finding Kus perplexing, fantastic in first 3 races (made the gate in all 3, I appreciate) and then solid last and not interested in last two, does he just give up as he cannot pass riders or what, but not very good from a Diamonds fans point of view to see him coasting around at the back and looking down at his machine (come on Matej your fooling nobody, we all know that their is sod all wrong with the bike!!). The defeat on Sunday was and should not have happened, yes Worky are a good team but to be 2 mean short (and had two riders who didn't score) and still beat us shows how vastly under the averages we are, yes Rasmus scored a boat load but we have two riders at reserve who should have been able to match his scoring. People may say that I am panicking after one home defeat, but the facts are we had 7 riders and they had 6 of which only 4 scored, we were the home team, now tell me that is not a worrying stat. Anyone know why we are not in the Pairs, or have I missed something and I still don't know why Ludvig was not in the 4's, I appreciate that meeting is now history, just find it strange.

    TRANSPONDERS IN GP'S

    But Grand Prix programme/race cards are usually blank and you have to fill them in based on the draw which takes place after the programme is printed, so don't see an issue. I think it is about time we moved into the modern era and embrace technology and use transponders and other technological advancements, potentially doing away with taped starts, must be a more efficient system by now!! Hang on speedway and efficiency.

    TRANSPONDERS IN GP'S

    Could they not use this to determine the draw order for the meeting, adds a bit of spice to practice, but then I suppose even that will lead to some form of manipulation. They could make fastest rider in practice is award an additional GP point, worth potentially 10 points over the season!!
  21. That's a new one, poor shape, same as all other tracks isn't it, 2 straights and 4 bends so what shape would you like it to be!!! Track not good, nothing wrong with it if riders use throttle control and a bit of common sense. Bored of this rough park and not always prepared right c**p now, track is probably the best it has been in a long time and as for entertainment, I leave having been entertained most weeks and not always by the speedway. I will take a stab at you being a Sheffield fan and therefore I will say I have been to many a meeting at Sheffield most of them prestigious meetings (such as the PLRC) when the track and entertainment was abysmal to the point now where I don't bother going to Sheffield anymore, narrow minded you may say but no more than your comments above. As has been stated, the incidents over the last two weeks have been nothing to do with the track or preparation or shape (it has been that shape for years) and were down to rider error. As regards the match, first and foremost, I hope Kyle is OK and nothing too serious. I was really impressed with Charles Wright who I believe does not list Brough Park in his top 100 tracks but he attacked the track (sensibly) and got his rewards. Better performance this time from Lasse, but the overall performance from Sheffield was on a par with past visits. Diamonds were great with the exception of Mr Kus who was shocking again, giving up most times after 1 lap, bike problems aside, not a great performance from Matej over the last couple of weeks, needs sorting and fast. No match next Sunday as we are at the fours and still confused by our lineup, any reason for Ludvig no show?

    He's stepped down as captain now so he should be fine away from home!!!

    Newcastle 2018

  24. Why no Ludvig for Newcastle?
