  1. Probably the worst series in a while - there was what one decent GP out of the 11 rounds in Wroclaw on the 2nd night? The rest were awful mainly down to a poor choice of venue or poor track preparation the riders deserve much better from the organisers.

    Plymouth Gladiators 2021

    There is a bias by a few posters connected with Plymouth that start glowing about the track and racing even if it’s 15 heats of processional racing ! Some of the comments about last nights meeting are a classic example the above quote sums it up in contrast to certain posters. It’s like some are on the payroll! I’ve been to most meetings and I’d say the following : 1. Well done to the promotion on a slick presentation and providing competitive speedway in the south west especially after the Rebels sad demise. Thank you for live speedway ! 2. The racing is compromised by its shape and size and anyone disputing that needs to be objective and the racing is sometimes very processional , but the size does none the less keep the racing close. If the track could ever be widened that would be hugely beneficial but I expect it is cost prohibitive.I’ve seen many riders bust a gut for 4 laps on the outside and they have simply gone backwards. 3 . The people are very friendly and welcoming and it’s a very pleasant evening out - again well done to the club and all the volunteers connected with the club. Finally I wish the club all the best over the winter and I look forward to returning again in 2022.

    Strongest second tier ever?

    I don’t think many of the Somerset team from 2016 have improved that much IMO in the last few years, there will generally always be exceptions like Bewley ,Lambert etc and riders on an upward trajectory. Allen, Tungate, Wright, Josh G, Strake from 2016 have all broadly found their level mainly doubling up between the two leagues over many years and aren’t significantly improved riders from 2016, but granted perhaps a little more consistent and naturally experienced.

    Strongest second tier ever?

    Can’t agree the 2nd division is a lot weaker than a few years ago.The Somerset team of 2016 wouldn’t be out of place in the current top tier: Josh Grajczonek, Rohan Tungate, Charles Wright, Jake Allen, Bradley Wilson-Dean, Paul Starke, Zach Wajtknexht

    I was thinking more so financially with so few meetings remaining as others have said Bjarne and Crumpy can’t come cheap. I’m all for progression but just trying to be realistic - I’d love to see a more competitive team especially away from home. I guess it will depend on finances.

    I admire your glass half full approach nothing wrong with a bit of optimism especially at the moment

    Not much point is there with so few meetings remaining ? They are not going to make the play offs

    Plymouth v Scunthorpe

    Not a great meeting last night purely down to the amount of delays and crashes it just never got going. I hope all the injured riders are ok and recover quickly. The ref didn’t help it seemed to take an age for the 2 mins to come on for each heat, granted the riders needed more time after crashes and reruns but even so the delays seemed excessive IMO.
  9. The weather forecast doesn’t look good for Lublin tomorrow
  10. Great final but a poor GP let’s hope tomorrow is better.

    I see the rescheduling of the Poole KOC match has been planned for 22 June - I am not sure it was a wise move to reschedule it the at the same time England play at the Euros? Of course many won’t be bothered about the football but I’m sure some will.

    Wolverhampton 2020

    No criticism pal of Wolverhampton I was just agreeing with the poster that the West Midlands has been hit harder than some other parts of the country that’s all !

    I think the 4K limit was for indoor venues , for Football when crowds returned from 17 May for outdoor events it was 10,000 or 25% of your capacity whichever was lower. Clearly some Councils took a different view if they had spikes of Covid cases from the Indian variant.
