    Ford and Middleditch have achieved a lot and done an outstanding job for Poole. It is understandable that after working closely together for so many years that Middleditch may not want to continue when Ford leaves.
  2. All that really matters now is who has a 1-7 to get them into the play offs and then the best 1-7 of those who qualify.

    That's what Belle Vue do. It's available live on fb or to watch later.

    Premiership Supporters Cup

    So far as I understand it the segregation is because as a new build stadium it had to comply with the current health and safety requirements. These requirements do not apply retrospectively to existing stadiums.

    I agree that we need a lot more people there. More also needs to be done to entertain fans but steps have been taken. Most meetings are now completed in less than 2 hours, Chase the Ace has been introduced and the music has moved on from the 60/70's. Fans were also segregated at Hyde Road but that is now a health and safety issue, which the promotion can do nothing about, as is the lack of facilities in the South Stand, which is a matter for the council.

    Despite the continuing decline at virtually every track the crowds at the NSS have increased significantly when compared to the the numbers at the dog track. There are fans who stopped attending after the move to the dog track who have now been attracted back because of the quality of the racing on offer at the NSS and some new fans. Nowhere near enough of them but certainly enough to show that entertaining racing does have an affect.
  7. I'm not aware of any problems at Belle Vue. In fact Rohan was very popular with the fans for his performances at the NSS. Maybe less so for his away form but that wasn't as bad as many suggest, he averaged about 6.5.

    I'm not but aren't they targeted at your personal search history and interests etc.
  9. What he said in thr Speedway Star referring to signing for Belle Vue was, "It's not a second option for me.Belle vue and Peterborough are both first options I could have picked from and I am happy to be with the Aces. My opinion, for what it's worth, is that riders say whatever is expedient at the time. I suspect that if another club had come in with a better offer he wouldn't be riding for either of our clubs. Just as most of us would work for whoever offered us the best deal.
  10. It shows how times have changed. When the NSS opened fans sitting in the section of the grandstand closest to the first bend complained about being hit by shale. Notices had to be put up warning of the danger.

    I didn't realise that Berge could be 5.5. If Phil is right about that then Berge and Wells could easily change places
  12. I agree about the entertainment. Unfortunately, there's not many riders who could replace him and match the excitement he often created. I also think you have a point about starting at no. 1 although with Cook and Andersen in the team I don't think he will have the same pressure that he had at Somerset. The fans may also have to realise that, like Harris, he can have a slow start to the season but if he does, give him a bit of time and he will more than repay you.
  13. I think you're forgetting that Bjerre said that it was Chapman who he was negotiating with about signing for Peterborough. You might think that on that basis he was doing or controlling all of the negotiations. Like others, I think Tungate makes a good Peterborough side even stronger. It's a shame we had to lose both him and Cook to get under the points limit. I hope both have good seasons, I think they will.

    I must admit that I was also surprised about Wells. I have seen him have some decent races at the NSS but he has never really been impressive. However, I think he will maintain his average. It will be asking a lot of Lidsey to manage to average at least 5.5 and probably more to have a chance of getting into the top 5. It's possible, he looks to have the talent but very difficult when racing on tracks he has never seen before.
