    Brummies v Mildenhall NL Wed 18th July

    Sounds like a cracker, two teams well matched via various circumstances scrapping it out to a last heat decider. Wasn't there but wish i was, great advert for speedway at any level.

    Rr and number 8's

    The only thing that annoys me about this post is i can only like it once. Ive been harping on for years about my loathing of RR and how there are so many opportunities to give riders experience being wasted. I think RR should be used as an emergency only in the case of very late sickness / breakdowns etc but limited to twice home & twice away per team. The rest has to be covered by number 8's. Im bored of teams abusing RR to their advantage and the long drawn out meetings as every manager seems to insist on riders having back to back rides.
  3. Im sure you can steward the 250 imaginary people that also don't attend
  4. Sadly true. The introduction of the SDL has been a positive in some lights but still with 5 teams in each its very light on fixtures. 4 H & 4 A is certainly not going to see many riders develop at a substantial rate. Add in that even tracks/track staff that host teams don't always offer much support which is sadly mud in the eye to the few amazing individuals who run the sides and the riders who travel huge distances in an attempt to better themselves.

    Brummies v Mildenhall NL Wed 18th July

    Tough one to call. Think Marson could be the difference maker as Mildenhall look stronger at reserve along with the struggle to cover for Hume's absence. Flint can't take his RR until heat 12, Bacon isn't eligible so think RR is likely to return 6 at best rather than double figures and that swing in points in a tight meeting may be the undoing of the unlucky Brummies tonight.

    Ipswich v Redcar 19/7/18

    Just had the U21 semi final over here. Lindsey & Kennedy both gave good performances as did Kvech for the czech republic. Any of those could have slotted in for Jeppesen and then a NL rider for Hume like Ruddick, Brennan, Stoneman etc leaving Mountain who has done no wrong alone and give the side a fresh young look that supporters could really get behind.

    Flint too young, Kinsley nowhere near ready yet.

    Think Heeps can consider himself very fortunate he wasn't shown the door

    Birmingham 2018

    Really rough on Hume and again unfortunate for Birmingham. The cruel twists that Dany on 8.80 whilst Knight & Carr would come in on 8.83.....im not 100% but suspect Greaves (8.36) is not eligible? although saying that he would probably come in on his championship average doubled anyway. Wouldn't go anywhere near Hall personally and think he would be more harmful for moral than good.....id say its either Hunter or someone from the depths of time

    Just daft all round, Riss has been trading off his brothers stock his whole career, Kemp risking getting an average (although manipulation should take care of that with little to race for) but Wally-inger Wal the Funk. No talent, no show National League reject. There are plenty of NL riders that would have loved the opportunity to ride at this level and put themselves in the window, there are development league riders likewise and all are more deserving of a team spot than Wallinger begger me the person who runs the tea bar must be more deserving of a place.....

    Birmingham 2018

    Certainly average manipulation is becoming a far greater factor in the NL. 3 pointers would be crazy to sign at this point of the season unless they have a concrete offer for next year (and there is no such thing in speedway) with 4 meetings to attain an average there is huge potential for somebody to have a few decent scores (lucky or otherwise), pick up an injury and then are saddled with a high average freezing them out forever.

    Mildenhall v Kent and Isle of Wight NL 1-7-18

    Is there any further updates on Sam Bebee anywhere? Scratch that just seen he has a broken arm. Sad times. Wasn't there but was he another victim of the armco behind the air fence?

    I O W v Brummies NL 28th June

    Good early fight from IOW and they must be heartened by that against the visit of one of the leagues top two sides this year. Final hurrah for Flint at reserve but the Brum reserve headache has been coming for a while and as yet there has been no sniff of a new recruit. With development league racing at Perry Barr and the chance to run 2nd halves when these do not take place the chance to find another reserve was there. Could have even chucked Butcher & Cupitt out with them as i think there would have been several challengers who were keen to ride for Birmingham. Im not sure that waiting for Gilkes is the right answer for the team or him as averages are awarded much earlier this year and with him likely to increase his it would make his prospects of a team place next season more difficult.
  14. Don't worry you might sign Saul Bulley and turn things around

    Im not going to claim abuse is widespread or that there are persistent abusers or that things haven't gotten a little more sophisticated but there is more than enough funny smelling smoke to say there's a fire.
