    Championship Fours 2020

    That is another issue with an organised bus trip as all will need to be in agreement to do Cardiff & Leicester.

    Championship Fours 2020

    Are they his quoted words? The article could have been scripted by the press office & Rob was the spokesperson to the BSPA site. Also, I am agreement with you in that the 3 meetings should not be on a weekend, too much of a burden to fans. Also, if the weather forecast was a bit iffy, how would that affect the attendance. It is ok for Cardiff having a retractable roof but not so Somerset & Leicester. Plus those that have pre booked hotels/inns etc could lose out even more. We have at Scunthorpe, benefitted by having the Glasgow League meeting on the Sunday after Cardiff(bar last years late running) so that is an opportunity lost to us.

    Predictions thread

    Allen could easily put 1 1/2 points on his average as he was held back by the shoulder injury he sustained 1/2 way through the season, establishing him as our no1. Auty could put another 1/2 on his average but hope it keeps him at no5 as that his where he is best. Both Tero & TJ should improve their averages due to being back at the EWR. Ayres has matured a little more now & is not reckless. What you saw at the British Final(& still on YouTube) was a rider that wanted to win a heat, wanted to beat a top guy in Harris, was riding mid track just in the deep stuff but on the last lap on bends 3 & 4, just carried to much speed & went into the deeper stuff. That was not reckless but a bit of bottle. Any one else would have, probably, decked it. Lambert & Palin could both improve, maybe only by about 1/2 point depending on where they ride in the team.

    That is a few times that you have mentioned "Rob" as if it is his decision & his alone. How do you know that Rob agreed to it? Could Rob have been against the proposal but out voted as this is how decisions are made, by votes. The BSPA has a committee of 5 members but almost all the promoters would have had a vote. By the way, I do not agree that all 3 meetings should be on the same weekend, as it could be a financial burden to some families with it being just before the summer holidays. There is also the issue that Peterborough could not fit it in at the Showground.

    Swindon Stadium

    What Osbourne & other developers should do ................ be accountable & rebuild or re-site new stadia before any houses are built as per the planning procedure. They should never have been allowed to build houses before the speedway & stock cars were sorted.

    Reading blocked from Entering NDL

    If people like CVS & Nigel Pearson involved with Cradley then surely, with their knowledge & contacts, an area could have been found for their home. While they were renting Monmore(and at times Perry Bar), they drew in decent crowds, paid top money to decent teams of riders while they were successful. As the bubble eventually burst as others caught up, their pockets bulging, they decided to ease up & walk away. A season away, no league entered but just the trophy, were token gestures to the fans of Cradley who deserved more.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    It also contains a lot of bitchiness & hatred towards Poole from certain posters with huge ego's & chips on shoulders rather than speedway talk. Also, why have they still a thread in the Premiership section, although there has been no more posts since it was mentioned before Christmas.

    Newcastle 2020

    Only around 2 more weeks to wait but I did hear that the promoters of the teams were making a provisional list in December then finalised in mid January, all done by the promoters & not a fixture planner. This year is not down to the BSPA or fixture planner(see above) & they will not be set in stone

    Poole Pirates 2020

    Poole have always been one of the big names in British Speedway & that is why they signed so many riders on as assets(their registrations) then loaned them out. They did nothing to develop these riders & I would think, 30% of Poole's assets have never ridden for them.

    I guessing that you did your homework & knew that Sheffield would not be beaten, that is why you started this thread. Well done

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2020

    Looking at the predictions thread, a lot of posters have us finishing in the bottom 3 as we do not have a strong no1 but we have 4 heat leaders from last years teams & our bottom 3 could easily score 14-18 at home & 12-16 away. We have strength in depth that could put us in the top 6.
