Got to be better 2 point riders than Danny Phillips tried him once why go down that option. Happy with lasse signing 

 

If you look at the other teams, many have at least one or in some cases two reserve riders who are new to the Championship and riders that Danny Phillips rode against in the National League last season. That should mean he can compete with those riders and find points easier to come by.

Reasonably solid Newcastle side, and one or two names in that team who would not think of Newcastle type riders 

Of the last two riders.

Not surprised to see Phillips name down on the team sheet with his old man one of the promoters at the club and he did a decent job when he was last there.

Bjerre, good rider and kind be spectacular on his day, but is someone who is very difficult to manage and can be at times disruptive, if you can get him in the right fame of mind and happy he is capable of beating anyone, if not then you have problems and he will let you know.

Personally I thik the Promotion are to be congratulated on the team they have brought together. They all seem as if they want to be there and are looking forward to the challenge and all are capable of progressing and upping their averages.

Well said Ms. Lion, I'll echo all of that.

Remember everyone,  it is our patriotic duty this Christmas to keep the nation's breweries in business and to contribute to the exchequer through payment of excise duties.

Merry Xmas and a great Speedway New Year to all Newcastle Speedway fans.

We know the team now, and all could be winners, so looking forward to a tasty season with a sprinkling of success. Roll on the last week in March. A new team, which will freshen things up, could surprise a lot of people. -_- :approve:

Danny Phillips averaging 4?? The lads true average was around 0.25 in his last 15 matches for scunthorpe and wasn’t much better in his previous ones. He scores around 1 point every 10 rides and shouldn’t be given another chance at this level.  Oh hang on, it’s a far less level now isn’t it.    Dressing up 5 point men as heat leaders (Mat Wethers will be our number 3) let that sink in when you all said last years team was rubbishe when he was a reserve.  Daft thing is this team will be mid table which proves they are serving up a weaker and weaker product every year 

He was averaging more than that for Newcastle before he got injured. you can hardly blame him for his last 15 matches last season when he was in a team where he obviously wasn't wanted. Scunthorpe should have checked the rules BEFORE they tried to sack him (especially since your promoter is actually on the management committee). There was no way he was not going to ride as he would have received a 28 day ban which would have affected his NL appearances.

As for him not getting to grips with Scunthorpe, well he won't be the last. The Worrall twins didn't particularly like it either when they first started. That was why they came to Newcastle at reserve!

Personally I don't have any problem with the last two. Lasse Bjerre isn't the first "troublesome" Dane George's had to deal with. We once had Nicki Pedersen. 

Different people react and perform (or not) to different managers.
