  1. Ivan Mauger 1972 unreal.!!!

    How could I have not included the late great Dent Oliver in my post shame on me. Yes that's one of the reasons I think the 72 team was one of the greats because 5 of team were home grown talent plus Sjosten who was as good as.All down to Dent Oliver.
  2. Ivan Mauger 1972 unreal.!!!

    1972 was my 1st season Mauger was a God.The Belle vue team of that year was I m o the best I have seen to date only lost 2 and drew 1 away all season.What an introduction to the sport I was hooked then and still am today.45 season later and in my mind 1972 has never been bettered the memories of that season will be with me for the rest of my life.
  3. Is the league stronger in 2018?

    Its not just about the 15 mins of speedway though is it.Its a night out where you can enjoy the racing but also if you are like me I meet up with my speedway friends(some I only see at speedway).Talk about all things speedway and all other thing ands have a good laugth etc and if I like I can have a drink. I went to the pub the other night spent about £15 on a few pints but that's all they gave me for my money other than a bit of background music.The enjoyment of the night was chatting and having a laugth with my friends etc= a good night out.If it was just about the booze i could have stayed in and drank the same on my own for a fraction of the cost.So what I am saying its not just the speedway its everything put together that gives me a really good night out at every speedway meeting I go to.
  4. Bye bye Gate girls?

    Swimming,diving,gymnastics,beach volleyball all in boiler suits.Tennis and hockey in long trousers.Full body beachware high neck lines skirts to the ankle etc.How far is it going to go it seems that some politically correct people will not be happy until we go back to Victorian times. If most of the population do not have a problem with something then leave it be.If the odd few over the top head case's have a problem with something then let them get over it and let the rest of us get on with life blissfully not thinking there is any problem.
  5. Swindon Stadium

    With the way things are with speedway these days Orlov we are lucky to have a stadium let alone a new one.So look on the positive side we will both be sitting/standing in a new stadium and both of us should feel very lucky we are living in clover towards a lot of our other speedway friends who could/have lost their stadium forever. As long as we have a stadium to watch our speedway in every thing is good.
  6. Swindon Stadium

    That works as long as no more than 3 coach loads of Poole fans want to go.
  7. Belle Vue 2018

    Yes both Poole's Poles have averages and Drozdz has to be assessed fair enough but if most fans including yourself think that both Pooles Poles are better than Drozdz.Then why can't the powers that be see this and assess him lower than the 2 better Poles.It makes it that Belle vue are having to take more of a risk because with Drozdz assessed on a 5 they have had to sign a weaker reserve because of it.Making them a weaker team overall. So without being a blinkered Poole fan does that seem fair to you.All speedway fans want is fair play for everyone but the powers that be do not seem to have the common sense to give us that,and it is one of many reasons that fans get pd off with the sport.
  8. Belle Vue 2018

    Nothing to do with what clubs can and cannot afford.Its the fact that you yourself and most other fans think that Poole's 2 Poles are better than Drozdz yet the powers that be have given Drozdz a higher average than Poole's 2 Poles.If both Poole riders are better riders then in all fairness Drozdz should have been assessed lower that's what is wrong with the sport no matter what clubs the riders sign for.
  9. Belle Vue 2018

    Yet he starts on a higher average than both Poole's Poles.Makes you realise that there is something not quite right about our beloved sport does it not.
  10. Belle Vue 2018

    Welcome to Belle vue Damian. Mixed feelings, Damian for me is the key to the team if he settles and does well in the Premier league we will do well if he struggles then so could the team so he is a big gamble.He should do ok at Belle vue but his away form could be a problem.On top of that with this team the new reserve will have to do a lot lot better than Smith to justify the swap in the minds of a good few Aces fans. The safer way I m o would have been to keep Smith who was improving towards the end of last season and signed a rider like Hougaard/L Bjerre etc giving us a very strong top 5 and a strong reserve in Bewley and let Smith keep improving as the season went on. A move that could possibly be made if things go wrong but then the new reserve will lose out as well time will tell. Lets hope the management know more than I do as in this case I would love to be proved wrong.
