German MotoGP: James Toseland happy to be back in top ten

James Toseland scored his fifth top ten finish of 2009 to boost his hopes of an improved result at his home race at Donington Park this weekend. Boxed in at a chaotic first corner, Toseland dropped down to 15th on the first lap and his hopes of a top ten seemed dashed with the Sachsenring notoriously tricky to overtake on. But Randy...

The analogy of supporting a crap football or rugby team fails really , as the crap team gets demoted to a crap division but other than that your about spot on . I think alot of the chagrin aimed at JT is disappointment at his failure to produce the results expected after all the usual bluster of "I'm not here to make up the numbers " etc etc ,Alot of people have heard it all before and it is a disappointment .The 25o and eventually gp2 600s are where the talent is for the next winner.

I don't think JT is happy with 'top ten' but he is satisfied that he has something to build on and has been making progress with the setup. I think it has been hardest to adapt to the tyre change and he is perhaps trying too hard which is understandable. It is good for MCN that he is where he is as it sure gets comments going on there website! Brit gp next and I will be cheering him on.

 simondick76..Listen Mate I wouldn't go round calling people Tossers...Unless of course You can back it up with something..[which in your case ,I shouldn't  think so]]..OK it`s been a crap season,but lets not forget that James is still the youngest ever WSB Champ and he also beat Bayliss[WSB]legend to win title no2 ..Maybe you`re the Tosser Pal!..and powermatic..ever heard the expression`Saying ain`t doing`...its the easiest thing in the World to sit back on your arse and be smug

Fair enough

If JT doesn`t come up with the goods he`ll have to go.

But why are so many people saying Colin Edwards has to go? He was 5th in the championship last time I looked and is Mr Consistant. Nobody expects him to beat Rossi, Lorenzo. Stoner Dovi or Dani so 5th is great.

Two works yamahas, two works Hondas two works Ducatis, and two works Suzukis ought to mean that the best of the privateers should be coming in 9th (broadly speaking). I know the disinction between the works and non-works bikes is narrow these days, but why are people calling for the guy in 5th place in the championship to lose his place? Whats he done wrong? CM.

Who cares if he was the youngest WSB world champion!!! Have you ever heard the saying you are only as good as your last race. And as far as Bayliss he is in another league to TOSSER. ( and actually the reason I call the lad Tosser is because a few years ago at the Scottish bike show I asked for his autograph after overcoming my own shyness to approach him, he acted like he could no be arsed and made me feel really awkward and stupid) is that good enough for you?? I just wish people like you would crawl out the guys backside and actually admit that the guys is not good and never has been good enough to be in GPs! FACT!

Happy he might be with tenth but he ended up 14th in the championship as a result, not much to be happy with there. I bloody hope he pulls off a good ride at Donny, it has to be his last chance to shine, leave the bloody piano alone and concentrate on your race weekend James

hitting the right note.

Maybe his time would be better spent, if he concentrated on the piano and left the racing alone.

Mr Top 10!!

10th, big deal,what good is that,bearing in mind there were only 17 starters in the first place,Randy de Puniet’ crashed out and Dovi retired so he actualy would probably have finished no higher than 12th,in any case in the last third of the field.Even if he goes well at Donnington (6th Max) I dont see how that can save his ride!
