    This might be all wrong. It's an age thing...... Wasn't it Rick Miller that was the only rider to finish a race at Brandon only to find he'd been excluded for not trying. He spent most of the race performing wheelies for the crowd. That was a 0-0.

    Touch of the Big Time Charlies about us last night . While we moaned and whinged about the track , the Scunny riders got on with it. attacked the track with a purpose and were well worthy of the win . 53-37 didn't flatter them at all . We're coming to the time of year when tracks ate going to be difficult and weather affected , and if we show the attitude we showed last night we'll be winning nothing

    A confident win.... no Bandit crocked this week (best wishes to Matty W though on recovering from what was a nasty spill) and my hubby wins the 1st prize on the 5-1 draw on our anniversary weekend... oh, and our next away opponents lose heavily at home That wasn’t too bad a night I tell ya

    My NHS career puts me in good stead to do it but no, it’s an absolute pleasure to help out my club anyway I can... that and my £10 standing order every month is just a small token of what I wish I could do!

    Perhaps you need to take your rose tinted glasses off.... If the positions were reversed and an Ipswich rider had got up and let the race continue there would have been uproar. It's only seen as cheating when the other side does it. Long standing fans still laugh about the time when Kevin Jolly done exactly the same thing at King's Lynn back in the 70's, when the league was actually a meaningful competition. That did win us the match back then. What Kurtz did made no difference to the result, we gated on a 5-1 in the re-run but Holder easily got by King in the only genuine pass of the match. What was more depressing was that a good crowd had turned up, positive new signings in the Witches camp and a genuine must win scenario only to find that yet again they were given a total pile of crap to race on. Dust after 4 heats, no extra water put down, nothing round the outside, just the usual gate and go you get at Ipswich these days. The close scoreline made for a good atmosphere but how much better it would have been if there was some decent racing to go with it. At the end of the day the better side won.

    Heard Cookies guesting for us in the 1st one and Masters in the 2nd one https://tse2.mm.bing.net/th?id=OGC.862aaefd3695f154f697edba373ff3f6&pid=Api&rurl=https%3a%2f%2fmedia.giphy.com%2fmedia%2fNe7aenG4oM1Py%2fgiphy.gif&ehk=rvJnEv6MGaJ%2fs3eX5BxWoQ

    Yes Sarj wasn't convincing there , but whoever thought Mikkel B Andersen was an improvement needs their head examined

    It wouldn't be if we had kept NBJ but hes injured now so would have needed replacing anyway but maybe if we had left it we could have got a better option. It was still a bad decision in my view. Wells didn't get sacked by Belle Vue because he was going well.

    LOOKING more and more like two wild cards will go to Doyle and Woffinden with Hancock a possible third.

    He's a multi alias fruitcake. Who knows who is he but he certainly wasn't there.

    I really don’t think Lambert is ready for a full season of GPS, perhaps another 2 years off. It’s been a good experience this year being series reserve, has given him more gps then probably thought, what with Greg not taking his place unfortunately. Kolodeiz, apart from a GP win, which was really good, he hasn’t done much. He must have something going for him to win a gp, and I accept you can’t win gp every meeting, but some sort of consistency would be nice. He seems to be another Lindback, so frustrating cause you know what he can do but just doesn’t manage it for whatever reason.

    reading the press releases from eastbourne the authorities should be more ashamed they have refused Eagles permission to use a bloody good reserve in Danyon Hume who wants to ride for them. No doubt if he was some johnny foreigner no one had heard of he'd be fine. more ashamed should be Georgie Wood who gets himself another ban for being totally unprofessional for the IOW and letting them and Eastbourne down.

    Some posts on here really haven't aged very well at all have they, bemoaning the 'no hope' Zagar and Iversen for qualifying for next year. Who are those two in tonights final again?

    But surely Plymouth can't go on without Wallinger? They will have to close the club down.

    The punishment doesnt fit the crime, jenkins made a snap decision to take a break, george woods got some issues at moment, both 28 days, cook as yet has done far far worse and not served one days ban, its cobblers

    At Exeter on a Bank Holiday Monday many, many moons ago. Heat 2 1st guy breaks the tapes and gets excluded. Re-run all three come down in the first turn, two of them get injured, ref excludes one anyway as primary cause. Single guy lines up for the third time of asking and suffers an engine failure. Someone may remember it better.

    The plaudits of the previous posters say it all. Not many riders go through a whole career with barely a bad word said about them but everyone liked AJ. AJ - A massive talent, and thoroughly nice bloke. Leigh Lanham said his favourite times in the sport were riding No 2 at Lakeside with AJ at No1. Fantastic team rider . It was always amusing to see AJ coming off bend 2 and pointing to where he wanted Leigh to go, left or right, Leigh would go there and AJ would bring him home. One thing many people didn’t see was that he was meticulously organised and always treated his mechanics extremely well. All good things come to an end. Sorry to see AJ go but as has been said, he has taken a lot of knocks and I am glad to see him leave in one piece, and while he is still relatively near the top. He still rides at No1 in my dream team though.

    Badly is right that points limit would have to be 40 so perhaps if we select a pool of 16 british young lions they can go and stay at no.7 on a 2 to 3 average all season depending on ability. 4 of the 16 acting as injury cover, sure someone will come up with a list of candidates. NL North 1. Berwick 2. Edinburgh 3 Newcastle 4. Redcar 5. Scunthorpe 6. Belle Vue 7. Stoke NL South 1. Eastbourne 2. Cradley Heath 3. Isle of Wight 4. Kent 5. Mildenhall 6. Plymouth 7. Coventry Could be branded the Northern/Southern "Super 7" series Home and Away twice Top 4 from each league progress to play offs so winner North plays 4th in South and so on... One cup competition with all clubs combined also Very much a less is more

    I can fully endorse that. Brilliant to watch the youngsters develop and some fantastic racing. Excellent value and affordable at £10 with under 18's free.

    blimey steady on falcon you are talking some good sense there. two leagues I think is the way forward as even a few premier league fans are complaining at the lack of different opposition and as a national league supporter I am fed up with our riders missing matches for us to ride in the championship. north south divide also sounds good if you can get enough teams to take part. I wonder if anyone above is listening though.
