washed up never was

much like yourself Nostro, big vocabulary yes, and can wax lyrical ,but as for your track record of judgement on riders ability do we really need to go there? Spies was a dead cert future alien according to yourself, i, on the other hand said not, Casey was going on a Doohan like title trail dominating everyone as he was sooooo much better than everyone else ,you claimed, i back Jorge if Yamaha improved the bike. You claimed Rossi was a washed up mid packer who would never win another race..........sad twat with no credibilty. whilst your playing golf and spouting shit in here, im racing most weekends......

The will to win

After watching the Dutch TT we all have seen what a rider can achieve with a will to win. I don't think Ben has it any more. To move from a competitive factory ride to a satellite team was not a "will to win" move either.

Ben definitely has the will to win, lets remember that he is the only person out outside of Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Stoner, Rossi and Marquez to win in recent times. I really hope he makes a sensational return, but on that pig of a bike I doubt he'll be able to show his talent, and its rare in this game to get 2nd chances.

What a damp squib of a career Spies has had <-- HAD ? seems as if its over , to me anyway , I really thought he'd be a Fast Freddie-a-like , shame , still he could possibly get "it" back . Hope Yamaha go back to WSBK with Ben at the bars of a nice R1 , beating yourself  to a pulp on a Ducati doesnt seem like fun to me .

At it again CCB

Three false strikes and you're out son. The first two of which are catergoric bullshit you've never backed up because you can't. The last I've always had the cavaet of extenuating circumstances (like the injuries two of the three amigoes carried).

Trot along.

Keep rocking in your deluded world Nostro you sad act. I dont have to prove you said those things, i remember as do many others. I'l never 'trot on' as you put it. I'l always be around to put the wankers like you in you place. I offered you a bet at the start of the season and you didnt have the balls to stand by your own convictions. unlike yourself i stand by the things 1 say or am man enough to admit when i get things wrong.....

Good as finished in GPs. Swap a top ride for this pile of shoite you certainly know where Spies career is heading the guy does not know how to make decisions. A BMW or a satelite Honda but he chose a crock of crap WSBK next.

It's a shame how things have turned out for Ben and equally how the future appears to be panning out. But he'll always have his 1st at Assen on the mantelpiece when others have a carriage clock.

All the best Ben.
