  1. Really enjoyed the coverage on Tuesday and I too would much prefer Dave Goddard's commentary compared to Pearsons "Screaming".
  2. Regarding the tactical rule. IMO I would not allow it in 2 leg matches. It is not needed and unfair. 1 team may get to use it and the other may not. That can't be right in a final especially. In 1 off league matches I see the attraction but not over 2 legs. You could get a situation where a 1 team gets 6 for the Tac and wins overall by a point and the other team never uses it. Surely this rule is flawed. Same for The World Team Cup really. If a team who's played the Joker and pips a team not having had the chance.

    Well we've had to wait a good while for this bet and we'll know by Wednesday if it's a cracker. Already in front with my EW part of the bet, but now hoping for the win.

    Belle Vue - Swindon 14. 9. 16

    Tungate won a race and he said he was the Ni***r in the wood pile for Swindon. He had no idea at what he had just said and carried on as normal. It was just a stupid wrong ignorant thing to say and nobody really could believe they had heard it. However, he came back on the mike and apologised for what seemed an age. Everybody takes these things different, but it seems harsh for the guy to lose his job out of stupidity to me.

    Belle Vue - Swindon 14. 9. 16

    Belle Vue announcer has lost hi job after last nights ill judged comments. The guy cocked up and made a really stupid wrong comment, but he apologised and I don't believe there was any malice in his thoughts. He made a mistake,. Political correctness claims another victim. Give the guy a break.

    Poole V Kings Lynn Elb. 7/09/16

    This is going to be a right tanking. Can't see Kings Lynn getting 30.

    Changes At Poole

    CONCERNED Pirates chief Matt Ford fears Hans Andersen's season may be over. The Danish star withdrew from last night's meeting at Leicester – in which Poole suffered a 52-38 defeat – following a collision with Pirates guest Max Fricke. Andersen was kept in hospital in Leicester overnight before returning to Denmark this morning and Ford reported that the former Grand Prix charger had sustained a broken finger and a head injury. Ford confirmed it was too late for Pirates to make permanent team changes, with Krzysztof Kasprzak enlisted to guest for Thursday's home fixture against Belle Vue. The promoter told the Daily Echo: "I only know Hans has a broken finger on his left hand. We are waiting for a proper diagnosis because he also hit his head quite badly. "The loss of Hans, which we believe will probably be his season end, is a major loss. "There's never a good time for these things but of course when we can't bring anyone else in at this point, it does make life very difficult." Ford is hopeful Chris Holder will be fit for the clash with Belle Vue after the Aussie ace pulled out of yesterday's trip to Leicester due to toothache and a migraine. Earlier in the day, the Sydneysider had bagged a 10 paid 11 haul in the 49-41 loss to the Aces at the National Speedway Stadium. Ford added: "I'm hoping Chris will be fit to return but we will have to take that as it comes over the next day or two. "I'm hoping he has managed to arrange something to get the problem solved."

    So Who Is Going To Win The El In 2016?

    OK then, let's put it another way. Assuming Belle Vue finish top (I'll be amazed if they don't) if you were in their position who would you pick? As I have stated previously I would go Swindon.

    So Who Is Going To Win The El In 2016?

    It seemed a pretty close match at BV yesterday and no doubt Poole have stronger depth than Swindon. Doyle & Tungate going well for Swindon but not a lot else, unless Morris or Grajczonek suddenly hit form.

    So Who Is Going To Win The El In 2016?

    Looks certain to me now that Belle Vue will finish top of the League. Can't imagine they will choose either Wolves or Poole and I believe Swindon will finish 4th. So I'll take BV to beat Swindon and Wolves to beat Poole in the Semis Final could go anyway but Wolves would be my pick right now. A lot can happen before the final though and injuries could have a say.
  11. Rohan Tungate guesting for injured Peter Karlsson for Wolves tonight. Strong Wolves side if Tungate rides like he did at Swindon on Monday.

    Tai Woffinden

    I think this has also got to do with Elit Vetlanda missing the Swedish Play Offs. It means Tai can swap England for Sweden and so his routine is not massively compromised and not jetting off every day. I doubt he would have come if Vetlanda were still in with a chance in Sweden and it's their last match next week I believe.

    Tai Woffinden

    I don't blame Wolves or Tai as the rules allow it. It does make a mockery of the sport though to some extent. However, if the BSPA allow it then who can argue? I have to say though it needs looking at for future seasons. I make Wolves Favourites for the league now.

    I think at 7/1 you have to have a bet on Wolves for the League with Woffinden signing for the rest of the season in place of Kylmakorpi. Great EW bet.
  15. I've had a little bet on the Russians. Very strong top 3.
  16. I'm booked into Upper Brook St. Travelodge about a mile from centre of Manchester and about a mile from the track and it has a car park. About £50 a night for the room.
  17. To be honest, I didn't realise that. It does make a difference. I suppose we'll need to see how they're all going at WTC time. Woffy & Cook look automatic and King looked good but WTC Final is a huge step up from the British Final. Let's hope Rossiter has a full squad to pick from.
  18. My tickets arrived yesterday. So after last nights British Final who would you pick for Britain? My team would be: Woffinden Cook King Nicholls Lambert U21 rider Steve Worrall could still push for a place but NO Harris for me.

    Here's a link to the draw at Horsens Denmark for tomorrows Grand Prix http://www.speedwaygp.com/draw/112 I've had a bet on Zmarzlik 17/2 EW at PPower. Good draw and in form.

    Wolves V Leicester 16/5/16

    Just hoping Wolves reserves both get decent points to build a bit of confidence. Surely a decent sized home win.

    Done 1st 4 races all Red Gate. If Iversen gates in race 1 then prices will be cut for 2,3,4 Heats. If it's no good then done my dough.

    To be very honest SCB that's a very fair point.

    Warsaw 2016

    The draw is now on Speedwaygp website http://www.speedwaygp.com/draw/113

    Woffindens got a good draw with 2 Red gates for the Warsaw GP. 5/1 with Corals with a bit of EW insurance I think is fair.
