    King's Lynn v Wolves 13/08/18

    And long may you continue to do so. I have found reports given out by individual fans to be of huge value. Where the reports that clubs give out are concerned, its a question of trust. I went to King's Lynn a few years ago for a Young Stars meeting and it was called off due to rain. By all accounts (apart from theirs) that simply wasn't true. How can a fan 'defer' to the club website (to be fair, this isn't just King's Lynn) when we know they are more than capable of lying ?
  2. Its not as though they are replacing him with a 30 year old from Hungary. Connor Mountain is just 20 and, with respect to Lawlor, at this stage a far better rider.
  3. Not Pickering's track at all. Last night was light years away from a brilliant performance he banged in at Scunthorpe - where you can pass inside or out - recently.
  4. Met Office now say stopping late morning, with maybe a bit after. If they are right (and they often are not) should be on.
  5. Quite possibly because they were long on promises and slow on delivery. I don't recall any questions being raised last season and you don't become a bad team manager overnight.
  6. Word I got was that they were long on promises and short on delivery.
  7. Its a consequence of the appalling, selfish actions of the BSPA I had not thought of - and this may not be the last occasion, either. Speedway descends yet lower - if that were possible - by forcing a club to change the dates of their fixtures and when they do, denies them a proper facility for riders absent as a result of the change of dates.

    Lakeside v ipswich

    Unless you don't have a track, that is. I find that people tend to defend their track from attacks by others rather than say how good it is.

    Lakeside v ipswich

    Someone who hasn't been to Belle Vue. In the 30 meetings I have seen there none has been average (never mind poor) and the overwhelming majority have been outstanding. Of the 80 meetings I saw last season, 3 of the best 5 were at the NSS.

    Colts v Mildenhall

    I must admit I didn't see that. I thought it was a cracking meeting and a superb advert for NL speedway. The Colts did better than I expected but the Fen Tigers young talent showed through in the end, aided by some furious determination when the chips were down. I'd give a shout to Sam Bebee on that issue. Under huge pressure from Paul Bowen in heat 14 (a rider with far more experience, especially of the NSS) he refused to give in in the battle for a point. In these days of savage self interest within the sport, its brilliant to read the comments made by James Easter and Phil Kirk about the way Mildenhall were treated by Belle Vue.

    Lakeside v ipswich

    I think there has to be a reasonable belief that riders can pass. If that's the case, then close racing is excellent. If not, then its rubbish. The problem with Lakeside is that many are prejudiced about it and that's unfair. I have said before and no doubt will again that I have seen some very good racing there. In my experience its better than Ipswich, for example.
  12. I don't think they can do that. There simply aren't enough riders at NL level and even if they change the rules and allow more current Championship riders I still don't think there will be.
  13. I have heard 16. 12 means that no less than 6 will be forced to close and that's hard to imagine.

    Belle Vue 2018

    I'd agree, although I suspect Riss will be slightly stronger, particularly away. Very surprised anyway.

    Incompetence is one thing, self interest is another. This is far more about the latter, and that's much less forgivable.
