    Newcastle 2020

    Well it's a vastly different looking team and , as most of us know very little about the new guys, it will be interesting to see how they get on. A few weeks ago there was the real prospect of no speedway on Tyneside and now they have a lot of new riders to look forward to watching. Look forward to seeing how they perform.

    There was no way Poole would be dropping down and not be having one of the strongest teams in the league. No doubt the team will change during the season too. Some good teams in both the North and South, should be a very interesting league.

    Predictions thread

    One thing I'd say about Redcar is that we don't have a massive home advantage as we have a very fair track and most visiting teams ,and riders, ride it well. For Redcar to have a good season we need Jordan and Kasper to pick up a few more points away from home. We relied on Nathan to pick up extra points from reserve and I'm not sure we can expect the same from the 2 young lads this year. Some strong looking teams but things will change a lot during the season and as always injuries will play a big part in deciding things.

    Redcar 2020

    Only surprise is Jordan Jenkins - not one of the 2 pointers mentioned and I know very little about him. Love the top 5 - if Kasper and Jordan S push on as they could then this is a very good Bears team.. Good team, Good promotion, Good track. Good time for Speedway on Teesside.

    As a member of the speedway world can I say I’m not “shocked to the core.” Interesting “wrighting” style on the Newcastle website these days. Vissing is solid and I really like Connor Mountain as a prospect. Had some excellent rides at Redcar.

    Redcar have their team sorted and it will be announced at the Xmas party on Saturday night and all the riders will be in attendance (apparently)

    Poole Pirates 2020

    Three good heat leaders but not the strongest top 3 in the league (based on last years averages). There will be a few competitive teams next year.

    I was very impressed with him when he rode at Redcar. Will thrive at reserve I think. Looks a decent side to me.

    Redcar 2020

    Taken from the Bears website re the league structure and fixture format :- With the good news being announced this week that Newcastle will remain in the Championship League next year, we can now confirm the league structure for 2020.There will be 12 teams in the Championship, with each team racing 32 league fixtures. Every team will race each other once home and away, with the 6 ‘northern’ clubs racing each other again, as will the 6 ‘southern’ clubs. This will give each Championship club 16 league fixtures at home, with the points scored at each meeting being added to the ONE league table, where the TOP 6 will qualify for the play offs. If Newcastle had not come to the tapes in 2020, the 11 team league would have been split into 2, with the top 3 from each group progressing to the play offs.We can also confirm that there will now be no Championship Shield, which would have taken place if there were only 11 teams in the Championship. This leaves each Championship team with 16 guaranteed home fixtures and at least 1 KOC fixture.

    I was only commenting on the subtle differences in geographical culinary preferences but now you mention it...........

    North/South divide confirmed in a single post.

    Newcastle 2020

    Given the new owners business I reckon there will definitely be a meat draw at the interval.

    Redcar 2020

    Well MPT still not been revealed by any other club (so far) so maybe we are looking at the same top 5 and a couple of 2 point reserves?

    Redcar 2020

    I like Jacob but I think it’s unlikely he will be a Bear this year due to his assessed average and the likely make up of the team. I’m confident that the Bears will have a line up that has plenty of thought put into it.

    Let’s hope it can be sorted and that the Diamonds run this year. Sport can’t afford to lose more tracks and any sport is better with local rivalries.
