    One minute he was in as a tac sub in heat 14, next minute he was replaced by Tungate. Garrity over him in 15. Must have told the manager to get stuffed.

    Swindon vs Ipswich

    Another meeting. Another shambles at the starts. This is just embarrassing. People new to the sport stood wondering what the hell is going on.

    Shame the pirates put up such a pathetic fight tonight as the racing was as good as it’s ever been at Blunsdon. If it was a tighter score line or something riding on the last heat, it would have gone down as an all time classic. Heat 15 looked more like a demonstration race than anything else, lost count of the number of passes during the 4 laps. Over the 15 heats there was barely a tapes to flag result as far as I recall. Credit to the track team, they got it pretty much spot on tonight. After the first couple of matches where the track was quite slick but making some good racing, they went too far the other way and put too much dirt on it, making it a bit choppy and unpredictable, but crucially making the dirt line once it built up, the only fast line on the track. Generally you could stick your back wheel in it and not worry too much about being passed. It’s been getting better since, but tonight was perfect. Enough dirt for a decent dirt line to build up, but not so much that it makes the inside of the track redundant. There was a line on the white line (the 1st bend dive bomb should be something our riders should be perfecting), round the fence, mid track cut backs, the lot. Bloody great. People go on about track curating being a real art, but these days, a relatively smooth and predictable surface and the right ratio of dirt allowed to build up out wide relative to the inside, and you can’t be far off. I don’t understand why tracks over here make such a meal of it in general. Credit to Vissing tonight, he deserved to score in each of his rides, even against the middle order Poole riders, not just the reserves. If he can pop out the start more often or be a bit smarter in the first bend, he’ll be doing fine. Like I said about the match on Monday, All the bleating mid meeting about us being useless without decent reserves is ridiculous. Anything can and usually does happen in the playoffs, but we’ve as good a chance of winning them as anyone, really we should be favourites at this point. Just worry we’re peaking too early.

    as stupid as someone belittling an experienced manager’s decision even before we’ve seen the consequences of their choice?

    I was giving Poole a compliment! It’s all relative. Glad you’re enjoying the new billiard-table smooth track, Steve!

    Just shows how bad the poole track used to be when fans and riders are giving that surface tonight some praise. Crikey. Ford’s potato harvest might be down come the end of this season, but still might have enough to fund some tin-pot race jackets for his lucky septet next season, though.

    Can’t believe some of the comments I’m reading (well, CR getting the razor blades out after going a few points down isn’t that much of a surprise actually). 2 point loss away from home to the league leaders, with only a point from reserve and the middle order losing their gating gloves mid meeting, yet some are going on as if we’ve been hammered by 20 points! Madness. Why anyone bothers talking about a defeat with the last 5 heats to come, specifically where this team is designed to excel, is beyond me. If the ref had let Doyle’s perfectly decent start go on his tactical ride (shock, another referee making a meal of movement / non movement at the start), we’d probably be looking at a draw. Just need to give Perks some gating lessons and we’ll be laughing. If anything I worry that we’re peaking a bit too early.

    Thursday 08/08/19. Premiership . Swindon. V Wolverhampton.

    Away for the weekend so missed this. Probably a good thing as I think i’d have exploded with rage if I’d seen Ellis excluded for rolling again in person. Have a word for Christ sake. Thanks to Doyle and Museli for rescuing that one.
  13. Appalling reffing. You’d think they’d be reviewed on that in most other sports and have the book thrown at them. Can’t see that happening here though.

    The management need to start fining riders who get excluded for moving at the start twice. Can barely remember a meeting at home where we haven’t had a rider excluded for moving at the tapes or touching them. the most brain dead way of gifting the oppo points and getting them back in the meeting.

    Swindon - Belle Vue 17 6 19

    The camera work is vomit inducing. Just zoom out far enough to be able to follow the main battles in the same shot instead of trying to zoom right in using a Sony handicap on a 5 quid tripod. It’s not that hard.
