    The Championship should have NO SAY in Premiership matters going forward. In 2019, if Championship clubs wish to continue on a Thursday they have 2 options:- lose all priority to rider's in the Premiership or step up a division.

    Tbh they were digging into after the meeting, looked more like a crater. Maybe they were just digging for oil

    As a neutral i would like to say you are utter vermin . I can take it that you do not give two hoots about the injured wolves riders and find it a Laugh just to back up your stupid vendetta reported you utter scum bag..

    No doubt they would. But that was as true 'then' as it is 'now'. If there was a guy outside the SGP who was good enough to mix it with the SGP top 8, had star quality, real pulling power and just happened to be the right nationality to add to the series .. Then considerations about whether or not be did the qualifiers would miraculously turn to dust and he would be offered a place. And rightly. Just like they did with Emil. But that is not Madsen ... Or any one else. At the moment.

    Mr Shovlar would make a wonderful politician, fantastic at ignoring and denying negative issues and peddling propaganda to deflect attention. Definitely a missed vocation

    lol comedy gold. Ask Jason Doyle where the hole was im sure he can point it straight out to you. All the Poole fans have spoke about the hole appearing and the remedial work carried out.............................everyone except you shock horror. Where is your detailed match report as well? We got a full blown rider by rider one when Poole beat a very weakened Somerset team.........................oh yes silly me you got beat so the report goes out the window.............

    That's the difference between Shovlar's world and the world the rest of us live in.

    No Sam didn't design it. Well, he did have input in the first place but then went back home for a wedding (I think) and while he was away David Hemsley went his own way and carried on with the track how he wanted it. Result ~ poor processional racing for years.

    Unlike some of the posters, I WAS at the meeting and it was one of the best meetings I have seen in many a day. As to the remarks about the track. I was talking after the meeting to a member of the track staff. He told me that the track was under water first thing in the morning with rain all day on Sunday. He had spent all day ( apart from during the Dog meeting) drying the track in time for racing. No riders got in any trouble with conditions, far from it, that is until the last part of the meeting when a soft patch seemed to appear on bend 3/4. It did not affect most riders, but one or two, including the unfortunate Danyon Hume, were caught out. My guess is that the previous day's rain had softened some parts of the track. To call it disgraceful is far from the truth. I have seen many tracks start their meetings in much worse conditions. The Kent track has been very good on every occasion I have visited this year ( about 6 times). I was a happy contributor to a very big Ben' Fund collection. A very worthy cause..

    The injury to Luke Bowen had nothing to do with the track conditions. It was simply a racing incident when James Shanes attempted to pass Luke on the outside. The track last night was in good condition and apart from the unfortunate injury to Danyon Hume it was a thoroughly enjoyable meeting. Best wishes to Danyon for a speedy recovery.

    Sure, meetings need to move on fairly quickly, but 60 minutes is far too short. I would say 90 minutes is a more reasonable time. You need some time between races. What you don't need is hanging around while a tractor chugs round for 5 minutes.

    No hole, you say. I have seen the video of heat 15 on the speedwaygb website. JD makes a reasonable gate from 2 hits something, straightens up and nearly collects Harris on his way towards the fence. Was it your wallet, Steve?

    With Newcastle still to visit in league and cup, might be a good idea to run that as a double header, should be an easy 3 points and next round of the cup. And only 1 travel.

    There definitely was a hole! Went to look at it after the meeting.

    How the hell did Wolves win that? Should have been a cake walk for Belle Vue. Whoever finishes top will be heading straight to Manchester in the semis first leg.

    It has taken a little while finding and translating the relevant rule- but an apology might be necessary for the Tarnow management as Henry is right and heat 15 has to be the 2 top scorers(or a choice of 2 if more than 2 are tied). Obviously it might have been tactically better for Tarnow to be 6 down after 13 rather than 4. I myself wasn`t sure and there are additional rules about reserves use in 14 and 15 etc. https://speedwayekstraliga.pl/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Regulamin-DMP-2018.pdf

    I agree re Morris, very lucky to get a second bite of the cherry. I note you are somewhat scathing of the Swindon track. Now I’m not going to defend the Swindon track, I can’t. There was minimal passing, it was decided by 1 & 3 and said as much, however, I have just read your report from this morning’s match v Somerset. It would appear, from your report, that the racing was top notch as I can find absolutely no mention of the track conditions at all within your missive. However, several attendees, Paddy The Rebel said it was ‘very poor’, Lisa Collette ‘dusty’ and poole keith talked about ‘the holes’ in the track. It would therefore seem there’s a hole in that particular report Steve. I have no argument with what you have said re Swindon but at least be equally scathing of your own track if that is the case.

    Firstly you have me confused with someone else, secondly do you actually know the definition of the word troll.

    The prosecution calls Lisa Colette to the stand... Is that your opinion from the video or your view in normal time? JD has clealrly gone past the white line, and in fact, is closer to the hot dog stand than the white line when he hits the hole. Bournemouth aren't going to be short of politicians when the current incumbent has had enough. I have assumed nothing. I have taken in to consideration the views of other Poole fans poole keith and Lisa Colette. Skidder has now confirmed that indeed there was a hole but it wasn't the 'hole' that caused JD to straighten up so badly. Perhaps you should take the opportunity to pop along to Specsavers today, and whilst your there book an appointment for Skidder.

    Name any other sport with a standing start where the athletes/drivers/Riders are allowed to anticipate the start? F1? No. WRC? No. Swimming? No Athletics? No MotoGP? No A standing start is about standing still and react to a start signal. It is not about chancing / anticipating the start. Transponders would solve this problem. You do allot of start testing and decide which reaction time should be the limit. This can the be monitored during the start and it would be easy to see if it is a good start or a chance start.

    Sigh ........ you just don’t give up do you ? You just come up with another name and post the same old bõllox. Its quite sad, you really must have no outside life as you have to keep coming on here and trolling to make yourself feel important

    ...yes it always makes me smile when people condemn second halves in whatever shape or form but there was no denying that it did help to bring on British talent together with the advent of the old Second Division.

    I know many of the King’s Lynn fans still have a soft spot for Nicklas Porsing. Very sadly on Thursday night, Nicklas’s fiancé gave birth to their little girl in her 8th month of pregnancy. Sadly her little heart was not strong enough to bring her into this life. Nicklas and Vitalina are totally devastated. However, their parents, myself and my wife were here in Poland to comfort them. Vitalina is now home and they are being very strong. This has been a terrible week for them, as earlier in the week we were mourning the death of Nicklas’s Stal Rzeszow team mate Tomasz Jedrzejak. Nicklas and Vitalina pray for their little girl and thank the many speedway fans from around the world who have sent their condolences and best wishes.
