    Jon Cook RIP

    Shocked like everyone else especially so young, a passionate characterful promoter who always added to a meeting especially in the Elite League days. Condolences to his family and friends. RIP Jon

    NL fantasy team... for fun

    Maybe a later developer, sure being at Eastie this year with all the other Brits both young and the more experienced guy's, and working with Crump and Pedersen at Plymouth will bring him on, if he doesn't this year probably won't make the grade unfortunately.

    NL fantasy team... for fun

    Henry Atkins looks popular, not surprised at 5.86 though, can't believe he won't end up at 8.00 or somewhere near it, probably be in every 'team' .

    Swindon Robins 2020

    I wonder if the percentage of pillocks in the country overall is the same percentage as on the forum, or do you think speedway attracts a higher ratio?

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    That clears that up then.

    Barn not free range then?

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    Doesn't always happen as we know, but all referees should be strong enough to move the meeting along at a sensible pace, do think the CL matches should run smoother with less re runs etc with the level being a bit higher (hopefully anyway). Len certainly stoked the fire, but Connor Dugard was certainly not averse to throwing fuel on it, especially for a 'new' team manager. Those years in the NL at the higher level at that time were pretty exciting though one way or another, curfew shenanigans or not.

    Newcastle Diamonds 2021

    Think the AZ one is generally worse after the first normally if you have a reaction and the Pfizer one more likely after the second so hopefully you've had the worst, so shouldn't interrupt the flow of witty quips and brain fade like it did after the first jab!

    Plymouth Gladiators 2021

    If you're married seems like the wife doesn't make the top 2, and maybe not on the podium with Crump and Plymouth after this year then??!!
  10. I imagine come May/June, if he wants it Richard Lawson will have a choice of teams in the Premiership, the on going European covid situation will cause havoc, and that's disregarding any injuries ( obviously hope there's none of those).

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    Good points and I'm in the same fortunate position, but if Mum Dad and 2 Kids could go for say £25, that may bring more in, and hopefully some newbies, or am I hoping for something that has passed into history and its only us 'older' fans who would go at either price?

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    I think championship crowds will be really good, but think NL crowds will be pretty low even bank holiday ones, hope I'm wrong, want all clubs to at least break even.

    Eastbourne 2020

    Costs very little to plan like Eastbourne have and can adjust it pretty quickly, waiting for confirmation the season will start will lead to the usual last minute panic and bad organisation of most of the promotions if and when it does.

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    To me it's simple mathematics and he's gambling on numbers. If he thinks it'll be say 200 die hard fans at £15 or 300 at £10 it's the same income. But to me I can't see those figures working as people will save their money for the championship meetings ie only £3 more to see Nichols etc. £10, especially with big concessions for children must bring in a higher proportion of the usual fans, plus a few extras may give it a go due to a relatively inexpensive evening out.

    Eastbourne 2021

    I think that's probably right on all counts and do think without this Danno would have had to sit out this year waiting for an injury to someone, or a team change somewhere. Interesting thing with him is I've only seen him a couple of times when Kent visited and have no idea really of what level he can get to, he always looked like an accident waiting to happen on our tight track (he will have so many mentors to sort that out), unlike Atkins who will be very good, and Andrews whos probably somewhere near his top level ( not a dig as I really liked the bloke when he rode for us last). If one club can find out what his potential is it'll be Eastbourne with its current ethos.
