    This wasn't a bad decision. Unbelievable would be a more accurate description.

    Never seen George’s comments of a few seasons ago so can’t comment on that but you have just said in your own words the Barker/Aarnio incident was “similar” to Richie’s so you must agree it was Barkers fault as you must also know some Redcar fans were that enraged about it they were saying they wished “Richie had been killed”

    Me too but at my age a short stroke is often enough!!

    Funny we were stood right behind you on Thursday and when the incident happened my wife said that will be Ben out of the rerun, I said not necessarily Ben had the inside line and was slightly in front of Aarnio who appeared to me to turn into Ben and came off worse. This was later confirmed by the referee, so you see there are always two points of view. Wish Aarnio a swift recovery

    12 (TWELVE) league matches from March to September and they have to hold a second double header against the same team. must have been busy with KO Cup matches as they have reached the semi finals having got through ONE round already.

    Heaven only knows. Absolutely no question that Barker lost control and T boned Aarnio into the fence. Given how obvious it was, probably one of the worst decisions I have ever seen.

    I think real speedway supporters see tonight for what it was. A match going one way, then a situation that changed the entire tide of the meeting. Normally in any sport these things are called turning points, sadly for the sport of speedway tonight, with the exception of a very few Redcar fans who appeared to cheer the event, that turning point was a blatant attempt to knock off a rider well in control of the race. As a team who have defied all sceptics this season and really stood tall it’s a shame to end the night without a point, but the thing that makes speedway great is it’s love for proper racing, true racing, and the diamonds stood tall tonight. The only thing left to say about Redcar speedway is, congratulations....... you had 6 riders riding tonight who rode fair, but sadly it took a B.B. intervention to kickstart the team, but kickstart they did. The fact they were rejuvenated isn’t the problem, it’s the 1 rider who continues to jeopardise riders safety daily that’s the issue. Well done Ben barker!

    I thought Kurtz might step up this year. I think he had around the 3rd or 4th highest average at the start of the season, without checking 8.04 rings a bell, i was wrong. But at 21 and on a low 6.80 ish average he would be a bargain next season. Starting as the 3rd highest average in a team would be ideal, no pressure as he don't seem to handle it yet. I'd have him at Lynn next season on a 6.80.. Before I get bombarded with the Pirate brigade, I know he will be at Wimborne Rd in 2019.

    I am not certain that today`s rearranged Czestochowa v Grudziadz is live on TV as N Sport are showing a live Handball or basketball match. Edit now 99% sure it`s not on live which is a shame- and we will have to make do with Daugavpils v Lublin which should be a cracker !

    8 teams is not enough. There has to be more variety. The same teams keep riding each other and it becomes monotonous. Be nice to see different teams bringing more away fans.

    Written and said numerous times about a rider who is more often dangerous than out of control. Pity because he is talented but has little idea of how to utilise that talent. And little respect for other riders.

    Looks like my Gino question has been answered. Such a shame I thought he was going to have developed into a much better rider.

    I'd go with the present 7 but I think the reserves programmed rides should only be against each other with a start from each gate position. If there is to be any doubling up then it should only be with NL riders and get them some more track time against riders of a similar standard so as to not undermine their confidence.

    Most teams I've seen this year already do, so does 6 mean 5 in reality.

    So Poole not putting it in. Must have cost Fordy a few quid in guaranteed points money. All for a meeting that didn’t matter to him. The old Choker fans don’t half come out with some old 541te. As for Shovy and his comments, everyone knows what he is about. If the guy said good morning to you, you would go outside and check for rain. Am I right in thinking IF Lynn finish top it will the first time in thier history in the Top League ? Or did we finish there once before ? if only Poole could have got Chris Folder in at no 1 instead of Kurtz. Think of the difference that would have made. It would have been good to see him on theat Saddlebow track last night.

    Todd is a slow burner? really? His average in the 2nd division was 4.97 in 2011, now 7 years later is less than a point higher, on that basis it will take another 15 years plus to become an 8 point rider. I like Todd, but do you really think someone who has been around in this division for 7 years and always been a 5-6 point rider will suddenly be an 8 point rider and by definition a potential number 1. I have my doubts
