    Poole 2019

    Poole were very fortunate with the way things went. This type of thing happens so much in a dangerous sport. A soccer or rugby team would bring in other players from their squad or an injured player would be substituted. Not practical in speedway but a squad system would make more of an even playing field.

    2018 season is done and dusted. This is very boring let's now discuss 2019.

    Somerset 2019

    As I stated in an earlier post most reserves they will come again they met last season in the NL

    Somerset 2019

    I think that in this league next season the reserves will mainly be from this years National League. This is why I suggested the names I have. You are looking at losing on average about 4.5 points from each team on last years starting averages. on finishing averages the lowest last year was Sheffield on 38.60 and the highest was Edinburgh on a whacking 46.44. To drop to 38 teams will have to bring riders up a league.

    Somerset 2019

    What everyone has forgotten is the low 38 point limit. Therefore nearly every team will have very low average reserves. What average would Henry Atkins or Richard Andrews come in on. Maximum I would think 2.5 each. Alfie Bowtell has an average of 2.38. After taking into account the top 3 already signed you have a total of 15.05 points left. Two reserves would take it down to about 10.05 for the last 2 riders. Maybe someone like Paul Starke at 5.88, James Shane's 5.09, Mark Riss at 4.84, Ben Morley 4.92 all come not the numbers game. i think BWD at 6.00 and Todd Kurtz at 5.91 are too high. However new Australians on 4 could come into play. Fun doing guessing games. Mr May and Miss Hancock will sort it out.

    Somerset 2019

    In a way I am sorry to see Somerset go down a league. But at least it will be easier to support both Somerset and Poole. Good luck to both teams.
  8. Everyone is entitled to their own oplnion. This is the weakest top level league we have seen in this country. Riders now ride for so many teams around Europe They are bound to get more injuries leaving a weak league with R/R and or Guest riding nearly every match. Remember when a rider only rode for your team. That's when you really got team spirit. So yes with this weak league the team that won it probably are the weakest there has been and would not have beate past winning teas.
  9. Well done the Rebels. Great set of fans and riders.

    Kings Lynn v Poole Playoff Final 2nd leg 10/10/18

    I agree fully with you Bob. Poole won the Championship for 2018. Poole came 3rd in the full league program. Kings Lynn finished top of the league by quite some way. Kings Lynn were very unlucky with injuries. This kind of results and injuries have happened other years as well. No more can really be said about the 2018 season. The KO cup is now coming and best of luck to both Kings Lynn (1 injury) and Somerset (3 injuries) Hope to be at Oaktree tomorrow.
  12. Goodbye. your posts are unbelievable. You accuse everyone as a cheat, Matt Ford, the ref, Ellis plus any rider of Poole. I thought MPT should not have been excluded in heat 12. However, the most that could have happened was a 3-2 to KL in that heat although I think it would have been a 3-2 to Poole. KL would have only had one rider in that heat as both reserves were already in the heat. MPT would not have ridden again in that leg nor the 2nd leg because of his broken hand. That is speedway. Are you accusing the Poole rider of dangerous riding with the intent of taking MPT out? Kings Lynn are disappointed which is understandable but your comments are so extreme it is unbelievable.
  13. Agree there are no Turbo Twins anymore but the top riders have abandoned GB. Poole beat the best of the rest. Why not accept that we have what we have.
  14. Get over it Poole are Champions.
