    Swindon Robins 2020

    I just remember Dudley Wood having a ‘pork’ van which sold the best pork scratchings/crackling I have ever tasted :-)

    Swindon Robins 2020

    So back to Swindon 2020 .............. No real idea why, but I have a sneaky feeling we may see THJ back as a Robin next year?

    Race for the top 4

    I think Poole should finish top, who they choose, not sure? If Swindon finish top, I think they will choose Poole, financially a Poole Swindon match at Play Off or Final will be the Season’s biggest earner and Terry Russell is primarily a business man, and why risk either of that pairing getting beaten elsewhere? In terms of Champions, I hope not, but feel Wolves are currently the team to beat. Wolves v Swindon would pit the two in form teams and should give a nail biting final, but if Poole finish top, I think this will be the semi? Time will tell, may the best team win.
  4. LOL, 7 (guest) - 3 + 1 v 7 (guest) - 18 No idea who will win, but not sure your logic holds up Robins have to be favourites for this title (Wolves for the Premiership IMO), but it’s a funny old game!

    Poole v Swindon. Prem. 19/8/19

    IMO, a fair result from a decent enough meeting. Track was raceable which is a huge improvement, but still very rough in places. Some passing, but a lot of gate and go also. Poole solid throughout especially at reserve but not unexpected. Swindon, top 2 superb, the reserves on a hiding to nothing, but at least on the pace, middle 3 all rather disappointed. it’s all ifs and buts - Klindt got maybe less than expected, Jensen & Muesli got less than usual, it all evens out to say these two should both be there or thereabouts at the end of the season, may the best team win!
  6. I think Crocs with socks has to be the way forward for a certain Troll like individual?
  7. Anyone seen any indications who is guesting at reserve for the Robins?

    Swindon 2019

    I don’t think that’s Contrary at all! On the grass Zach is immense, but speedway is a different art and style of riding, and it is hard to change between the two, hence IMO why his speedway development has been slow and almost stagnant? I’m sure he will continue to excel on grass and hopefully come back to the shale when he has learnt to adapt his riding style accordingly?

    Sad that Zach has felt the need to make this decision, but I fully understand and support it. Good luck on the grass and long tracks Zach, come back to the shale stronger when you're ready. On a selfish note, I hope he told Rosco a few days ago and the Robins were able to re-declare to the authorities before the average changes? Finger's crossed!

    Swindon. V Peterborough. 06/05/19.

    I believe I read Zagar was excluded which personally looked harsh. Just a racing incident IMO. Speedy recovery JD.

    Swindon 2019

    I think Shanes deserves some time to get over his current injury, learn the new track and settle in at Swindon, no way should he be even considered for dropping until he has had a few months at 7 for the Robins and time to settle. The guy is a 100% trier and a racer to boot, I for one hope he comes good in time and think there is a decent chance he will. No need to panic. Too many would be managers with no real idea what goes on in the world of speedway giving their hair brained opinions.

    Best/Worst Team of the Season so far

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but you said 2 heat leaders in your rules? Does that mean one of Jason Doyle, Troy Batchelor and Robert Lambert are not considered heat leaders? Surely this makes your strongest team illegal based on your rules?
  13. A month ago Freddie scored 10+1 from 5, but included 2 from a double points ride so really 8+1, and Jacob 9 from 5; So 9 from 5 from the Freddie guest and 7 from 4 for Jacob's r/r, is roughly quid pro quo, so I think it was a fair comment. That said, the Swindon track was dirtless tonight which may or may not have favoured the missing men? Poor meeting, but Wolves deserved their victory 👍
  14. For me, the track preparation fooled Swindon, it just had no grip while they are used to being able to put the back wheel in a bit of dirt and getting the bike to drive. That said, same for both teams and Wolves did about what I expected, came fired up and rode like a team. I didn't expect them to take a lead to Monmore, but the fact they did might just work in Swindon's favour? I don't think the loss of Freddie and Jacob made much difference tonight, but if they were fit, it would certainly be all over now as at Monmore they are superb. Well done Wolves on a deserved victory, let's hope we get a better race track Wednesday and may the best team win. On a side note, saw the 'Freddie/Bjerre' crash tonight on TV and IMO Freddie was the cause of his own downfall and Bjerre was unlucky to be excluded which would have lead to a totally different result, but that said, that's just my opinion from one quick view, which is what the ref gets and he/she made a decision which stands so fair play Wolves.
  15. I fancy Poole to take the honours tonight, given it's wet, I can't see Doyle being interested, I just hope the rest of the Robins rise to the task at hand. Either way, I think it will be a close one.
