    https://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/sport/17979273.terry-russell-will-wait-agm-outcome-deciding-call-time-reign-swindon-robins-chairman/ Good read this. Swindon obviously being well run. No chance we will be allowed to keep the same team though.
  3. Yeah loved that part of it! The Doyley chants at the end were class!

    Who are your top five riders in 2019.

    Like Gav I can only comment on riders I've seen this year so will go - 1. Doyle. Best rider in the league and good captain this season. When you need someone to secure a win or a point then Doyley is the man. 2. Rasser - From 4.5 to 7.8ish. Says it all. You almost want him to miss the gate for entertainment purposes. 3. Klindt - Stepped up this year and rode better than I ever thought he was capable of. 4. Lidsay - He's in because he had improved massively by his 3rd visit to Blunsdon in the cup final. 5. Becker - Was good at the abbey and looked good on the box. Especially liked his efforts on the wet track in the play off semi first leg. Honourable mentions for Batch, Tobi, Ellis, Perks and Vissing!!!

    TV new deal?

    Agree with that. Heat 3 at Swindon was absolute class last night but when I watched it back on the tele it just looked ok. Shoddy as hell.

    Yeah it was an atmosphere rarely seen at speedway!

    Haha we were stood by them at the presentation! My 7 year old wanted to copy and go shirtless as well!

    Would like to see the 2 Brit reserves back and would be keen on Rowe if the 7's were protected and all of a similar standard.
  9. Your boy has turned into Gollob in the last few weeks Jonny!! Been class 2nd half of the season.

    Agree with all of that!

    Can't see Batch being back even if we wanted him as sure the 2 riders over 8 will be back to ensure the new teams have a number 1. He's been class this season and would be missed. Think you need to try and get the rest back if you can. Looking at the averages on GB site we are currently at 46.34. If we had to lose Batch would be 4.98 left for final rider, maybe more with British reductions. Who knows what the limit will be tho!!

    Well well well, who would have predicted we would have been sat here at the end of the season with 2 trophies in the bag. I didn't even think we would make the play offs in June!!! Rasser, Perks and Vissing have all made a big difference so the rubbish double winning manager Rosco got the changes right again. Thanks to Terry Russell for overseeing the track work and giving us some entertainment after years of gate and go. Final word to Lee Kilby who has been an absolute breath of fresh air around the place. A promotor who promotes and bar a couple of meetings mid season the crowd levels have surely been up this year. Roll on 2020!!

    Pretty sure he has ridden over here every season and will continue to do so.

    Surely Poole's falling attendances has loads to do with the track. Despite the denials of a few it was clearly rubbish and why would you pay £18 to watch speedway on that.

    What on earth are you on about? Doyle won't like what?
