    So is "being related to one of the directors of BSP Ltd" one of the criteria?

    Sounded at the time like he didn't want to be there. Heard speculation that when he signed with Leicester, he wasn't fixed up in Sweden or Poland so accepted the offer, but by the time the season got underway, he'd secured a team place in whichever of those leagues. So the story went that he wanted out of the Leicester deal before the season began, but the Lions management played hardball, and so he just underperformed to force them to give him the push. But I have no way of knowing how true that all was.

    No biscuits this year, apparently. Fudge was the only thing available

    Snooker tournaments are being staged at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes, most of them being shown live by Eurosport. Could the new plan involve the setting up of a temporary speedway track in the car park, and to run speedway on the days when there is no snooker happening? Eurosport could thus keep a "permanent" prescence there, and who knows, maybe Barry Hearn could become involved? Noise problem? Use e-bikes.

    Amazing what a good old punch-up can do to help build a better relationship !

    2021 speedway season !

    If the Oxford vaccine takes a few months more to be brought into use I would prefer to wait, as it will hopefully make me more intellectual and brainy.

    2021 Season

    You can see a split developing within the Championship, in fact it's probably already there! How about a bit of good old compromise? Keep the 41 point limit to begin with. But for team changes once the season is underway, bring in additional restrictions which become tighter, the higher the rider being replaced's average is. However, if a club has an aggregate team average below a defined level, give exemption from that restriction.

    Was Stewart Dickson speaking as a knee-jerk reaction to his problems with Ellis Perks at Leicester, or was he speaking as a Director of BSP Ltd?

    The last thing a club needs, is to drive a wedge between itself and supporters who are feeling below par

    I would have concerns over many members of the team announced for 2020, in terms of competitiveness and commitment in 2021.

    MORE POLISH LEAGUE INTERFERENCE

    It is time for Britain and Denmark to work closely together now and even have a single top level league, even better if Sweden comes on board as well. Obviuosly pandemics and Mink not withstanding

    Godfrey's 16

    So, who is on Rob Godfrey's list of 16 riders who should be first in line to be offered Championship team places, should vacancies arise this winter?

    I was surprised at the time, it took so long for the TV commentators to realise that Lindgren was nowhere near his bike, when I, with my decrepit eyesight and generally failing faculties, spotted where he went straight away!
