    Eastbourne v mildenhall 14/7/18 OFF

    I wonder whether we were riders down at the weekend perhaps with grass track and believe Wood had food poisoning during the week so may have been a dought or not 100%. Think it would have affected the crowd by a small amount, but may have been a means of rearranging the match.Still can see the usual rush to get fixtures in again though.

    Would that be Donald Trump on Twitter, sure he must know, the p***k seems to think he has knowledge of everything in the world.

    I see we have a slot reserved in the fixture list on 28th July for the KO cup, not sure if the semi final draw is done before all the current ties are finished, but if that is the case not even a date in the fixtures for the Stoke vs Kent one, let alone the following round against Plymouth! Even now can see the last minute panic coming in October to get everything in as usual. Just wondered if it would make sense to slot the tba league match against Kent into the 28th slot, we even play at Kent away on the following Monday in the league so would tie in nicely and not leave a long gap between home fixtures.

    Eagles v Brummies 30th JUNE NL

    Easy home win with our trick track and smooth surface which the Brummies won't be able to cope with, Bacon, Shanes and Hume have never riden well here and probably the only track the wonder kid won't get to grips with. That's what the Brummie fans will tell you as usual . Seriously though should be a pretty close meeting, but think the deciding factor will probably be Dugard at reserve, with a home win, but Birmingham could quite easily grab a point.

    Goes well with all the other daft rules we have in speedway I suppose

    You're right, need to draw a line under the other issues here, hopefully it can be fixed!

    There's so many good valid points here about the machinery, and Sings point about the silencers has definitely made the current bikes seem less controllable actually narrowing the power band. But at the end of the day the prime cause must be track preparation in whatever conditions are thrown up ,especially with set weather. I can only answer for Eastbourne, our track looked destroyed over the winter by the stock cars, but we always seem to prepare a track that's a bit slick on the inside with plenty of dirt and grippy around the outside and don't remember seeing any dangerous ruts. Although some opposing riders find our tight track a bit ' demanding' it's not normally dangerous. I suppose throttle control comes into play rather than just winding it on. The opposing riders who can master it don't normally complain about the track surface, expect Kemp found it ok last Saturday. So track prep is key, what you can do about machine regs for the NL I don't know, only way to instigate something would probably be no doubling up which I can't see happening.

    You'd have thought the power's that be would have learnt over the last 20 year's that a low points limit has never been good for any league. There will always be stronger and weaker teams whatever the limit, but as you say a higher starting figure always gives the weaker teams chance to improve, and the likes of Jake Knight and until recently Bowtell wouldn't be without a ride.

    Yes did have a quick look, I think against Plymouth away in August, hopefully doesn't affect us nearer the sharp end.

    Brummies v Belle Vue Wed 20th June NL

    Agree,the most satisfying meetings are a 49/41 win having got a 5/1in heat 15 to take all 3 points and restricting the away team, although if it's a cracking match, 46/44 is great and gives the away team something for their efforts in making a great meeting.

    Just hope there's not too many fixture clashes as it's always the NL team who loses out.

    Brummies v Belle Vue Wed 20th June NL

    Yes, please can both Birmingham and Mildenhall hurry up and get your 4 league meetings done to help the rest of us!

    Unfortunately I think you're right.

    I've enjoyed the NL whilst we've been in it, but although I don't think it'll happen, really hope we go up to the championship next year otherwise we'll probably lose the likes of Wood and Brennen. Would we get much bigger crowd's, not sure, but no dought the call and probably need for lower costs in the NL and more than likely a lower points limit next year would probably reduce crowd's, not sure I could justify the 100 mile round trip with 4 of us to watch 2nd half quality racing having done the journey for 20 years.

    It'll become an mdl/sdl league, they won't learn what they can in this league with the current competition, but as I said it does need restructuring, with the likes of Buxton running in an mdl type league , with the top league being slightly above championship level, followed by a league somewhere between championship and nl for the likes of Eastbourne and Birmingham.
