  1. Kebab tonight it is. Chicken, Kofta, or the bad greasy debatable “lamb” donner?

    Bellego’s form abroad has always been good. Only a week or so ago he scored heavily somewhere (Sweden?) and we all said on here hopefully that gives him confidence and helps him kickstart his season for us. But no, back in his Witches kevlars and still crap.

    Was going to say brave or foolish but thought I’d leave it to someone else first. Just gotta hope he hasn’t done more harm than good and suffers a setback because of it.

    So it seems to be predominantly Swindon fans who think this is a poor move. Not surprising considering he’s a favourite there. I dare say he’d be a favourite at Foxhall if he reproduced his Swindon form here. Unfortunately all he’s produced is absolute guff.

    I know where he’s coming from too tbh. There’s no doubt Harris started on an inflated average and you just get the feel that if we had someone better on that average, it could really give us a genuine shot at the title. Im not saying he should definitely go, for a start I don’t see too many better options to replace him and he also seems to bed in well within the team and they all seem to get on well. One thing I have been disappointed about him though is the entertainment factor. Where is the “bomber” that you expect to see riding right out to the fence, wringing the throttle and reeling in those in front? people can’t say that it’s not the track for him to do that because we see Heeps using those lines all the time and Nico did as well. We just see Harris happy to float around mid track and they’re not the lines I was expecting him to be using.

    Everyone’s entitled to their opinion of course, but I think you’ll be in a minority here. 13 meetings and averaging 4.40. If Kennett doesn’t improve upon that average I’ll be staggered. We’ll see.

    Yeah but you also said pre-season that we were easily the worst side in the league and were certs for the wooden spoon

    Thought this was an interesting (and beautiful) picture from Jeff Higgott. This taken after the meeting, and just shows how much rain had fallen the previous evening and through the early hours of the morning. The track staff did well. The picture btw is taken from the infield half way down the back straight where Bob Ellis parks his tractor.

    “55 points in 13 meetings at an average of just 4.40.” Just seen this stat. He can’t have any complaints

    Really don’t think it does Steve. Hard to be weakened away from home by axing a rider who Belle Vue aside, has been absolutely dreadful!

    We just need Kennett to do the same as the others, a steady 6/7/8/9. Bellego wasn’t doing that. Nobody is expecting him to come in and be a heatleader and to be honest, we don’t need him to be. He’ll slot in to the middle order and make this “strength in depth” team even more strength in depth. 100% improves this team IMO.

    We’re already unbeaten at home this season and that one change has made fortress Foxhall even more of a fortress. Kennett will be far superior to Bellego around the Heath that’s not even up for debate. Perfect timing with a dangerous looking Swindon coming up next. Well done to those involved (whoever that may be) who decided to act and make the change. I know we’ve all been crying out for it, but it could have been easy to hide behind the team doing so well as a reason NOT to change anything. Good decision and good signing.
