    Newcastle 2020

    OK to start on the negatives - at this moment in time virtually everyone's predictions will have the Diamonds finishing bottom of the league, and I can see many defeats to start the season off with. However positives - as others have said there will be speedway at Newcastle in 2020,and from Granty's comments for a number of years afterwards. The team which has been put together does have potential for improvement with several riders able to have substantial increases in averages, whether they will is the big question. If the new guys, who I assume will be assets, get a full season in then they should be good for 2021 and I fully expect diamonds to be much more competitive later in season. Bottom line is enjoy your speedway and support the new promotion - hope it goes well - as I have often pointed out it is to the benefit of Redcar and Newcastle for both to have strong teams, as was clearly demonstrated by last season's cup final. Merry Christmas to all up in Geordieland

    Predictions thread

    I appreciated hearing your views and fully accept why Poole & Newcastle were not included, I'm expecting you to update your list when each is known. The flak you are getting appears to be more due to part of your name as opposed to your comments

    Redcar 2020

    Best top 5 in the league and two reserves with huge potential - IF one (or both) of them click 2020 will be the YEAR OF THE BEAR

    Somerset 2020

    Might be alot of fun with Barker and some of his other teammates (or teammate to be precise)

    Eastbourne 2020

    Top quality side in my opinion - I have installed them as my favourites for the title already Would have loved kemp at Redcar

    Newcastle 2020

    Each team in Northern league will race the same opponents the same number of times eg twice against 5 teams and once against the other six,so it willbe a fair table. Then likewise in Southern league - Seems quite simple and straightforward to me
  9. Neither of those are any good, I don't get back till 8pm Monday evening (in Manchester!!!!)
  10. One would hope commonsense will prevail and the riders can ride in a cup final as opposed to a totally meaningless match!!

    Redcar v Leicester Semi final

    lol You seemed to enjoy the comment too much Anyway as we are on a week later can you now make the final??

    Bears v Diamond's KOCF

    Whilst it is the correct decision, the major downside to it being delayed a week is that we will have to endure more of the drivel being posted on these threads (sadly I have to say primarily from a Redcar fan!!)

    Championship Grand Final 2019

    Whilst I obviously wanted the Bears to be in the final I think both Leicester and Glasgow deserve to be there - good luck to both sides - lets hope it's a cracking tie

    Redcar v Leicester Semi final

    If you met him in person you would be amazed he could string coherent sentences together, I think his young children do the posting on here (Note to Yearbyred - Visually impaired!! (I haven't forgotten!))

    Bears v Diamond's KOCF

    What's the story with Lasse Bjerre - is he likely to be riding in the final? Choice of guests will be very important for both teams - I make Redcar the favourites, however it is a lot closer between the teams than many may think - Diamonds have got quite a few who can have good meetings at Redcar - and Ulrich might just come back tobite us big time. However the most important aspect is the fact that we finally have a major final between these two sides - lets make it a great event and show the rest of the Championship the passion we have in the North east, this is great for both promotions - and whilst we all know both clubs have some "supporters" who will view this as an opportunity to "have a go" at the opposition and their fans, I sincerely hope the true speedway supporters in each club will get behind their team, but show respect to the opponents and applaud good riding by all riders, whatever colours they are wearing
  16. I've only seen him at Redcar and he must have been rolling in every heat, because he always seems to enter first corner in lead!! Can't think of any other reason than rolling Whereas our rider Erik Riss also usually gets to the first bend ahead, but of course he is just a good gater and never rolls!!

    Redcar v Leicester Semi final

    Good Luck with your conspiracy theories - I'm afraid you are a very small minority Rumour I heard was that both were very keen to ride and do well so they might get the call from Redcar next season

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Well done to Cook and Jensen - certainly looked the part at Redcar last week!

    REDCAR 2019

    Really ??
  20. northyorksbear

    REDCAR 2019

    Leicester 2019

    But will he fit in October???

    REDCAR 2019

    We're all going to Wembley Media Prima arena, we're all going to Wembley Brough Park, nah nah nah na, nah nah nah na (Repeat many times) Well done to everyone - should be a cracking two legs with our nearest and dearest
  23. We all said 10 points was the benchmark - any more made Bears favourites, any less Eagles on top - so all to play (ride) for in second leg. I'm hoping Edwards poor form continues (can improve after tonight) that might just be the deciding factor, but ultimately I think it will be how the big boys do against each other

    REDCAR 2019

    Well Done to Kaiser Erik, great performance. But lets also celebrate Tom Woolley, he matched GB & Glasgow (and defending champion) star Craig Cook's score - and from one less ride
