    2019 NL Season

    Trouble with the Trophy is that you see the same team time and again. Take Eastbourne/Kent (just as an example): challenge match to open up, Trophy, NL and we always seem to face each other in the cup. Would be much better for attendances if we saw Kent in the league and cup (maybe) + perhaps a challenge early on but frankly something else would well suit me. A bigger league and we could kick the Trophy to the sidelines or maybe leave for those teams that do not make the Play Offs.

    42 points is what it should be.

    Mildenhall vs Eastbourne KO Cup Final

    And, I should have added to my post last night about Charlie Brooks: he comes from the back.

    Mildenhall vs Eastbourne KO Cup Final

    Charlie Brooks gated, navigated bend 4 safely...my word, this young man has made huge progress since April. Mildenhall didn't have the rub of the green (nor did Eastbourne in 1st leg) but you sense some in the Fen Tigers camp believe the triumphalist hype that has oozed from the Fens in the last few months. When the Fat Lady sang, Mildy came up short. Of course, the Play Offs is another matter altogether – the Eagles have yet to qualify.

    Kings Lynn 2018..

    That's a good idea. Personally, I think the scheme should be to put tokens in the programme. This rewards loyalty and also encourages people to buy a programme, which at King's Lynn is pretty good - but certainly not the best in speedway. For the final (if reached) it could be normal money at the gate and a free programme.

    Boring formula 1 racing

    I knew the world was going mad

    Boring formula 1 racing

    340,000 over the three days this year, it was reported at the time of the race.
  9. As I said, I don't care a monkey's...if Lynn win. I suspect there are a lot of other people who will feel exactly the same
  10. Frankly, I don't care a monkey's about the racing at this stage. It is all about winning. The only thing I am interested in is that the Stars have made the Play-Off finals for the first time. There has been a lot of pain being a Stars supporter since 1965. I will cheer my head off if they gate and go and win the top flight for the first time.

    Anyway, I think this is the least of the worries for any NL club. I just hope they don't become the sacrificial lambs that speedway's big boys seem to be lining them up for. Where is Wat Tyler when you need him? Who Wat Tyler? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wat_Tyler

    Totally agree...and they force riders to take part under the threat of being banned. Shameful behaviour from those that run the sport.

    Someone, somewhere forget value for money. Programme sounds to be a disgrace for £2.50.

    Thoughts on 2018 Season

    The smoke signals are pretty persistent on this and, as we all know, there is no smoke without fire.
