    1 out of 10 for English.

    Scunthorpe v Glasgow

    I understood it to be more a hand problem as well as collarbone and arm injury. Heard 5 to 6 weeks, but Jason says 3- tough men these speedway racers!

    Sheffield v Scunny 02/06/19

    Congrats Tigers we gave you that win. Just a few observations. So many heats from the gate, to watch that every week would be a right bore fest-and before you ask ,yes I have attended quite a few Sheffield matches over the seasons. The track may be the fastest in speedway but it is not the best for pure attractive racing to keep the punter's interest. Personally I hate any Tacticals and if a home side needs one they are certainly not deserving of it. Once again, for us the match was lost at reserve, something we need to address- Bailey gone and Kinsley not scoring now is a worry. As for the enigma of our Number 1, the curse of that position haunts us year after year. Whoever is at number 1 their form dips straight away. To be fair to Josh Auty it is clear his bikes were not up to par and was on his second bike for his last ride. We can lament Jake not being in heat 15 ,but in his previous ride he was well beaten and probably Danny deserved his chance. I think both clubs are in for a short season, both promising on paper but not doing it when it matters on track.

    Will Ben Barker fit to cover Jason's injury period???

    This season is going same way as last season with injuries blighting us. Hope Jason heals quickly. On a positive note Danny Ayres has been a great signing and becoming a fans favourite-well done on his fine showing at Redcar.
  6. With 4 Scorpions in the line up, hopefully some of them, if not all, have a good night and go through.
  7. Looking at some of his other posts he is defo a glass half empty guy. Back to Scorpions v Rebels, think we shot ourselves in the foot with the track conditions. The track was under watered ( Rob needs to junk his weather forecaster and use local BBC one! ) well dusty after a couple of heats and had no outside dirt. Our riders were searching for the dirt against the fence ,when it was clear riders were actually going backwards on that line. Well done Somerset used their heads and got points when it mattered. It is another poor feature of this season that the new crop of referees are blind, incompetent or just don't understand speedway racing!!!

    Bailey quits who is out there to replace him?
  9. Wow, what happened to innocent until proven guilty? Plenty of people on here I would not want on a jury. Let the Scunny management tell us what happened and any repercussions.
  10. Thirty miles in weather terms is quite a way,30 miles north of Newcastle and you would be speaking with a Scottish accent instead of Geordie.
  11. Well that's strange because I was in Scunthorpe all day and it stopped very light drizzling at 12.40 ,from then on no rain whatsoever, then light spots at 20.35pm. Forecast was spot on.
  12. Tyre wear on Jason's front wheel looks freaky
  13. A meeting with not much to ride for as no cup progression at stake, however it was entertaining. Thought track was underwatered with too much dust and far too much tractor racing making it disjointed. A strong performance from the home side, the difference being their Reserves scores against the Scorpion reserve scores. Ryan not seen the track before but Josh Bailey is starting to worry me. Thankfully no injuries and just another warm up to the League starting proper. We underperformed but at least I got my Friday night speedway fix.

    Don't recall Messer's Machin, Boocock or Wilson being on the Scunny management team ?

    Sheffield's Track Woes

    After my first ever speedway meeting I quickly realised where the shale was likely to be thrown up, and to avoid standing there.
