    Berwick Bandits 2022

    How would that work against Oxford? He'd be riding for Berwick and managing Oxford at the same time? Nothing would surprise me... However I think we've seen the end of Jason's riding consistently days... Was a privilege to see him again for one last season. Even if I did only start watching speedway right near the end for him, I could just tell how big of a legend he was...

    Poole 2022

    This thread just isn't interesting at all. Nothing to do with Poole speedway now, or what their team is going to be, or their plans for 2022. It's just a lot of people bickering and arguing, how boring. I feel sorry for any of the Poole fans who have an actual interest in their club.

    Oxford Cheetah Cubs 2022

    I'd personally rather see the next Danny Ayres, Steve Worrall, Craig Cook rather than seeing James Chattin and Ryan MacDonald again (no offence to them lads, but they just haven't cut it with so many opportunities) Fair enough, if the league was bigger, there'd be more space for the likes of James and Ryan. I'm sure if a promotion is willing to put a rider in their NL team on a 3.00, even if they are a ex motocross rider, they'll have had plenty of experience on a speedway bike at the many training days across the country. There are currently a couple riders just from the top of my head I can think of who have just transitioned from road racing and motocross who are based in the midlands of the country. They are older lads (late 20s) but they are very talented at riding fast bikes. They could do a real good job helping our leagues grow into more homegrown riders, which is what we need at the end of the day.

    Excellent news...

    Berwick Bullets 2021

    1 Kyle Bickley 8.75 2 Kieran Douglas 4.18 3 Greg Blair 7.57 4 Ben Rathbone 4.00 5 Connor Bailey 8.34 6 Mason Watson 3.91 7 Ace Pijper 3.00 What about this for the team? Connor would be brilliant in the NDL, and I think it would do him the world of good also, he needs to get more experience under his belt rather than just riding for Glasgow or else he may stagnate. If he can have a brilliant season in the CL and NDL, he could push for a PL number 8 or Rising Star spot in 2023 easily... A bright talent, I just feel he hasn't ridden enough yet. And I'm sure Glasgow would be more than happy to let him have more experience... Great team... Lots of young talent and lots of local academy riders also...

    Poole 2022

    Having Danny King, Steve Worrall and Richard Lawson as 'what's left over' isn't too bad though, is it?

    Belle Vue 2022

    1 Max Fricke 8.81 2 Jye Etheridge 5.22 3 Brady Kurtz 7.27 4 Charles Wright 5.92 5 Tai Woffinden 6.85 6 Jake Allen 4.80 7 Tom Brennan RS 38.87 0.13 If Belle Vue could pull off that team, they'd be unstoppable... Although there's been plenty occasions in the past where teams on paper don't perform on the track... I wonder whether this would bankrupt them also... Although I don't imagine the government will be happy if they supported building a stadium just for it to sit empty?

    Belle Vue 2022

    He's coming in for Belle Vue... Not Poole, Glasgow or Scunthorpe... His average will have doubled since he last rode here

    Birmingham Brummies 2022

    Kevin Wolbert was mentioned a few times in the Edinburgh thread a few weeks back and he's ridden for Birmingham before hasn't he? Would he be a popular addition, or not? I think he has the skill, if he takes the uk seriously, to be a brilliant rider over here, solid number 1. I am not sure if he'd even want to ride in the uk though, or if he rides in Denmark already, it rules him out... Birmingham seem to have little to no options left... Please don't tell me it's gonna be Josh Auty at 1 and James Shanes at 5!!

    Armadale Devils 2022

    Would be nice to see Willie Lawson in the Armadale side... Or else he's not gonna get a ride anywhere. Not sure if he's classed as a big hitter or not though, but it may allow for a little extra strength in depth. Both the Millars at reserve, George Rothery at 2 rather than 4 etc...

    Birmingham Brummies 2022

    Is it anyone's business what a rider gets paid? It's not my business what you get paid, so it's not your business what I get paid...

    Where’s Claus Vissing

    I've always not been Claus' biggest fan (for some reason, I have no idea why) and I was a little disappointed when he signed for the Diamonds for 2020, even if it didn't work out in the end. HOWEVER... I would be GUTTED to see Claus has been lost to speedway From what I saw of him he was a brilliant rider and always give it his all... If a little angry at times. I have never really known why I didn't like him as much as other riders... I just didn't... Come back Claus!!

    Edinburgh 2022

    Looking forward... I'm guessing Danny King, Steve Worrall and Richard Lawson will be the heatleaders with the Cooks as the second strings? And Drew Kemp and Nathan Ablitt at reserve?

    Edinburgh 2022

    Bring back green!! haha... I am personally fine between yellow and white, but I understand that others may not be able to see, especially on a dark September night up in Glasgow
