    Ipswich 2022

    Fopr me, Allen doesn't have the right technique to become a higher level rider. Sits on the seat too much backing it into a corner. Will be ok as a league rider though, particularly on the easier bigger tracks.

    What Offends Me And/or Gets On My .....

    Amazes me how people keep peddling this Daily Mail b0llox. The Iraq war was built on a failure by the intelligence services - it's well documented. One thing you may also remember him for was vastly increasing funding for the NHS, which has been underfunded since 2010, oh, and the Good Friday agreement. Honours awards are now simply tick boxes under the media spotlight and not worth what they used to be. Raducanu and countless others who've done things for self-interest should not be honoured in the way they are these days.
  3. Top four using guesses for the teams yet to announce their full side: Ipswich Sheffield Belle Vue Peterborough

    wrong thread, sorry.

    Ipswich 2022

    I think Ipswich have a good team for next season - Batchelor excepted. I've never like riders who give up if they haven't gated in front, this is why I also dislike Cook as well. I've always liked Heeps, a trier and able to pass people and Doyle & King make a solid top two.

    Wasn't much use at Foxhall this year though so moving on makes sense.

    Peterborough Panthers 2022

    Maybe the link being both run by Courtney's? Their Dad Mark was Harris's mechanic for some time wasn't he?

    European Union - In Or Out?

    But it's not about will at all, the EU would need any free trade deal to come with a sizeable wedge of dough and to sign up to their standards and external tariffs.

    Eastbourne Speedway

    Agree with the last bit in brackets. Spending lots of money on all new stuff every year is completely unnecessary. A new van every year is also unnecessary. There are so many costs to clubs and riders that can be cut. A 10mm bolt will last for years but many will have all new every year because they're shinier - totally unnecessary. Four helmets a meeting in each colour, totally unnecessary - did anyone see how many Emil S had accumulated?

    Wolverhampton 2020

    Hi, I think Kemp will stay at Ipswich. He is involved in upcoming promotional activity with the Witches which although in itself doesn't mean that, it is an indicator to me.

    Nightmare signings

    Ok, riders I would not be excited by if signed: Troy Batchelor; Craig Cook; Lewis Kerr; Jake Allen; Nick Morris; Jack Holder; Lewis Bridger; Charles Wright Just my opinion obviously.

    Poole 2022

    I'd heard he was offered a better deal with Poole so chose to move, not 'released by Plymouth' in the way you've put it. Same result though.
  13. All I can offer is that my wife is double jabbed but caught Covid whilst visiting her seriously ill Mum in Basildon Hospital, a hot-bed of transmission/infection. She had a high temperature for a couple of days and now has symptoms like a bad cold. Her Mum, who had her booster about four weeks ago has not caught Covid. I take from that that it's very worthwhile if you wish to avoid catching it.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    We cannot control them though - under investment when EU members. Back in 92/93 huge waves of border staff from around the UK were cut, never to be replaced and now it's proving really difficult and expensive to try and fix because we have to have a trade border with the EU. I wonder if some people just thought we'd be able to continue with free trade to/from the EU but that won't happen without a large brown envelope being passed in their direction, probably in excess of what we contributed previously.

    Belle Vue 2022

    The higher level riders score more points in the Championship than the Premiership - look at the averages to see that. So overall costs would be too high if they paid the same in Championship for the seven riders as a whole.
