    Newcastle 2018

    I see Ludvig has stepped down....... as captain of the Diamonds!!! Hopefully this will achieve what it sets out to do and see an improvement in Ludde's away form, which can only be a good thing for the Diamonds. Stuart Robson takes over.
  2. Bit harsh that one, I don't think Riss could clear the track as he appeared stuck under the fence and at first I thought he had knocked himself out, not sure but he certainly didn't move for a while. Another cracking match between the Diamonds and the Monarchs and all 7 Diamonds performing well and ensuring the win. The win was a lot easier than I thought but that was in part down to the loss of Riss but credit to Wells and Pickering who were defo value for money. I know we are getting the results at home but we are still too weak in my opinion but if we are winning matches at home can't see the team being changed and to be fair, I don't think anyone is available. Great to have Robbo back who looked like he had never been away. Onwards to Sheffield next for hopefully another cracker and a win. Did I hear Roy say that all 11 teams are involved at the 4 at Redcar on the 1 July?
  3. Good result for the Diamonds, wonder why George didn't opt for Wethers in 15?
  4. What about the one where D King ended up under the fence?
  5. Can you buy tickets at the event or do you have to get them online before hand. I remember buying them on the day last year, just wondered if it is the same this year?

    Should that not be afford?

    Scorpions vs Diamonds - 08.06.18 19.30

    This race sums Lindgren up for me away from home. He had a great lead after lap 1 and the Scunny paired shouldn't have seen him for dust, but he seems to just go through the motions away from home. I like some have accepted that we are going to get very little from him away from home and will enjoy his home displays which are top class.
  8. Heat two had the making of a cracking race with Archie completely missing the gate, shame it ended how it did but glad Archie was OK and he did well to compose himself and come out and storm to two more great wins.

    I think if you say 57 - 33 you would be closer to the mark, I know who will get the 3 but can't see where the other 40 are going to come from unless you know something I don't!!

    I'm hoping someone is really rubbish at April Fools and its not true!!! That's not the word I typed, I typed s**t!!!!

    Newcastle 2018

    Hmmmm that's an interesting signing if true, I suppose he is better than a NL guest but not sure how it makes us stronger, we'll just have to wait and see. Scunthorpe should be interesting on Friday!!!
  12. 7 and 15 every week, he only scored 1 at former club Glasgow!!! Summers is great but if he misses the gate can often be nowhere. Don't get me wrong he is great and would have loved him in the Diamonds team and thought he would be as I thought he lived local but was not to be. I think Ludvig is a more entertaining rider when he is on it but unfortunately that is not happening away from home.
  13. Harsh but you could say fair, mind u I could say Summers is a gating tart based on the fact that when he missed the gate last night he was nowhere!! Cracking meeting and a fair result with some good racing and interesting battles. Good luck against a new look Redcar.

    Newcastle 2018

    But surely the point is to bring in riders who improve your team and the Management clearly feel that 'to use Redcar as an example', the riders who they have brought in would not improve our team. As a Newcastle fan I want Ncle to find new riders but it's no point in just replacing them with anyone. To call Newcastle cheats is out of order and unfounded!!!

    Newcastle 2018

    I was gonna suggest Timo Lahti but just discovered he rides in Poland (Daugavpils), bloody polish leagues. I think Kus rides for Poznan in Poland, could be wrong. So Stuart might be back on Friday depending on practice and we need a replacement for Rose, I'm struggling to see where one will come from. I don't think it will be Kus as that would be suicide by the Diamonds, I can only think we are looking abroad, Sweden maybe????

    Newcastle 2018

    Interesting that Peterborough have snapped up Kennett, I wonder if he was on our radar, he was looking for a Championship place: "Edward is an experienced rider who had been looking for a Championship team place, and the opportunity was there to bring him in without disrupting the rest of the side, which is also important for us.” Would have been a good replacement for Rose, assuming he is not coming back anytime soon, or Robbo?

    BRUMMIES v I.O.W. Wed 23rd May

    Great to see Josh getting on the scorecard and impressing people. Hope he gets a team slot somewhere soon as can only be good for his development and good for Newcastle. He doesn't seemed to get pushed very hard in the second halves at Newcastle, so I think he needs more competitive racing to advance and kick on. Good Luck to him though..
  20. Ludvig Lindgren is flying away from home at the minute!!!

    I see Lewis Rose has stood down from his place at Kings Lynn, does this have any implications for the Diamonds, is he about to stand down?

    Ipswich vs Newcastle 26/4/18

    Looks like a good pay day for Ippo and another piss poor showing from the Diamonds with the exception of Morris.
