    Premiership League Prediction 2021

    Sheffield (or Swinfield ) to win it - in their first season in the top flight

    with or without

    With the year we have just had, can we not just leave the petty squabbles and attempted point scoring for now - NNH!! (No Numpties Here). Just focus on the speedway and be glad that you have a speedway team to support this year!

    Speedway would not survive without fans - so unless matches are streamed - it would be financial suicide.

    Wolverhampton 2020

    It seems that people rate both riders as much the same or preferring Kemp, How come Kemp is a level 3 then while Rowe is a level 4? Probably fits a team better that way!

    Peterborough Panthers 2021

    Are they having playoffs or using league positions for champions? Playoffs in a 6 team league just sounds wrong.

    I suspect air travel won’t be so cheap as it was for a while - as airlines have been haemorrhaging money.

    Ipswich 2020

    Individual meetings do not count towards averages so 2ndbendbeernut is not wrong - you are just not understanding what he is saying.

    Wow - last time we saw him on these shores he was like a mobile obstruction - being overtaken all over the place. COVID-19 has had a big impact if bringing him back

    Belle Vue Aces 2020

    Given that promoters had no income last year with probable costs, I wouldn’t be surprised if they raise the admission to £20!

    How do you maintain balanced strength in depth sides? Jettison those at the top and bottom? What incentive would riders have to improve? Even with well balanced teams, some will score more and some less which then means you no longer have a balanced team. If they are watering down the league so that there are less at the top and being replaced with “rising stars” then I wouldn’t expect to fork out the same admission as previously either! I.e. if I pay to see a premier team, I expect to see premier riders.

    Q.E.D. I wouldn’t part with the best part of £20 to see them!

    You need to get them there in the first place. As an example (and no disrespect to anyone) imagine that you are used to watching Jason Doyle, Troy Batchelor and Rasmus Jensen and then your top 3 riders become Chris Harris, Scott Nicholls and Edward Kennet and you have to pay the same admission. Apart from the die hards, how do you get fans to attend? Remember - value for money.

    And that is where speedway has been going wrong for years - people want value for money and if not Speedway, they will get it elsewhere.

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    I get that he isn’t a popular rider and is a bit like marmite. As for not being much good - that is funny. He is probably one of the best riders in the league now

    Swindon Robins 2020

    New school near the Abbey stadium given approval https://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/news/19011431.new-school-near-speedway-stadium-given-green-light/
  16. I used to love Swindon on a Saturday but the greyhounds put paid to that

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Or to put it another way... I doubt Batch would want to ride for Buster at Kings Lynn

    Swindon Robins 2020

    A good early call IMHO - if things were clearer then TR may have been prepared to take the risk. It is likely that some sort of disruption to our lives will continue until the vaccine is rolled out sufficiently - so expect lockdowns, tier restrictions etc until then. The likelihood is under 50s won’t get their first vaccine until August or September (unless they have a medical need to have it earlier) so I would expect significant impact to all sports in 2021 sadly. If (and it’s a big if) they can roll it out quicker then they may have a chance of a curtailed season.

    Help Lynn win something

    George Russell in a Mercedes F1 car should put Kings Lynn on the map

    Poole 2020

    Their closure was down to their “saviour” Avtar Sandhu - who turned out be a very unsavoury character in his antics with the stadium!

    Poole 2020

    I can’t understand why anyone would rejoice at the prospect of losing a championship club or any other club for that matter. It’s too early to say whether or not they will survive but I hope they do.

    Belle Vue Aces 2020

    The customer will for the first time be able to believe the times of races - no human reaction time - just accurate timing which has been around in other motor sports for years. Additionally, you shouldn’t get the human error (the ref) when deciding the result of a close finish (or dead heat). Well done to Belle Vue for trying to take a dying sport in the UK forward using technology!

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Well done Lambo - SEC winner. Really showed how far he has come this season. Would have been good to see him in the U.K. rather than the telly box

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    The number of deaths suggest that this was not just flu and I don’t think any decision makers panicked. Lots of things could have been done better and some things don’t seem logical - but better to be safe I say
