    Wolverhampton 2020

    The problem with that is we were saying that in March and look where it got us.

    Speedway Promotion or Lack of it.

    After thinking ( which hurt ) about the quality of the modern day racing in this country, it does appear to be a lot closer than the so called golden years. Unless Mauger, Olsen, Briggs etc were in a race together then the riders were well spread out. A lot of the overtaking in this era was due to Olsen Collins etc missing the start and having to come from the back. The riders in this country apart from Jason Doyle are much of a muchness and so the racing is a lot closer. The above riders were far superior to the others hence there high averages. As an example of the close racing nowadays I was at Swindon Last night to watch the Wolves and as a far as I can remember every race had close racing and a few of the races were in the balance until the line, not entirely due to the track as the same happened at Wolves v Belle Vue last Monday.

    Speedway Promotion or Lack of it.

    I first went to speedway in 1963 aged 7 and have been a follower ever since. For the last 4 decades I tended to go to Wolves 3-4 times a year plus Cardiff, the less I went the less I wanted to go. I have an adult disabled Granddaughter who asked if i could take her to an away match, as she is a huge Scott Nicholls fan I decided to take her to Leicester, since then we Haven't missed a Wolves or Leicester home match and have traveled to Belle Vue, Stoke, Sheffield,Peterborough, King's Lynn, Somerset and Swindon. The ( long winded ) point I am trying to make is I was one of the people on here who wouldn't go because it isn't as good as it used to be, but now I have my enthusiasm back most of the racing is as good if not better than during the 60's and 70's the only downsides are the lack of atmosphere, a disjointed fixture list and seeing the same visiting teams 3 or 4 times a season. Perhaps if others got off there backsides and actually went to a meeting they might get the bug back and go regularly.
  4. Is there plenty of parking at the stadium. Thanks Steve

    One League

    Passing even up to Gp level is generally caused by riders mistakes eg too slick, too grippy wrong set up, wrong lines, over riding. So this can't be a reason for overtaking only in the NL. After the first bend if the rider in front doesn't make a mistake he's going to win.

    One League

    By the product do you mean the class of rider or the racing . I go to Wolves H&A, Leicester Home some Away, Cradley Home and Stoke Home when not clashing with Leicester the racing in the CL is in the main far better than PL and a reasonable amount of races in the NL are as good if not more exciting than the PL. I have been a Wolves supporter for over 50 years and seen the good, the bad and the ugly but I feel a lot of the opposition to one big league comes from the snobbery of PL fans looking down on the lower leagues. Most PL riders double down to the CL so how would one league be weaker than the 2 we have now. At the moment there is only 1 world class rider in Britain (J Doyle) so the risk of losing GP riders is negligible.

    Can Stoke use Joe Lawler now that Leicester is off.

    Wolves 2019

    Unfortunately this was against a God awful team. My biggest worry is that maybe it's too early for Luke to be moving into the main body of the team and it could affect his confidence.

    Ipswich v wolves (Thursday)

    Is the A14 open during the day and night from Huntingdon to Cambridge and visa versa? If there's too big a diversion either way it hardly seems worth the effort travelling from 20 miles west of wolves. Any advice would be gratefully accepted other than don't bother travelling. Cheers Steve

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    I will be making my first visit to Perry Barr soon, could anybody tell me the best place to park as I will have my disabled grand-daughter with me who can only walk short distances. Many thanks Steve
  11. I'm sure Rossiter said he had someone keeping an eye on the programme (probably watch with mother)

    Wolves 2019

    It still doesn't alter the fact that since Thorssell and particularly Morris replaced Nicholls and R/R we have lost 2 and drawn 1 at home.

    Probably because he was dumped by us.
