  1. it doesn't happen very often BUT have to fully agree with you - can not see any positives at present
  2. Have to agree thought things were bad but .......... think we need a wholesale rethink of the team - not going to say who I would drop but (and I don't know about the averages) I would be talking to Tai / Freddie Lindgren Ricky Wells and James Shanes - many more matches with this team and our season is over - we could have actually won our match at Poole last week but failed to use the TR when we had the chance (quite simple really do you want to see Summers and KK have 4 rides each or Summers 3 and KK 5)- expected to lose at Swindon but last night was a complete disaster (to actually say that we stand a chance of winning on aggregate on Wed well what can one say?)

    also forget about 3 on the trot so to speak seem to remember there was a 15 min interval before heat 11 - during that time all the Poole fans were discussing how KK would be out in heat 11
  4. Rye House 2018

    3 on the trot or not giving him at extra ride ? - a no brainer to me - or course we would have still lost the meeting (but NOT if bomber hadn't hit the rut and fell) but by not using KK for extra ride when we could there was then NO chance of winning (especially when you consider the line up in heat 14)
  5. Rye House 2018

    sorry just noticed this quote how can anyone be thinking about heat 12 before 11 is run ?? - with the t/r rule the chance must be taken while it is there - yes very hard on Summers (perhaps he could be paid for the points he lost) BUT to deny KK an extra ride lost us the match (especially with the ominous heat 14 looming which nothing much could be done about).
  6. Rye House 2018

    will try to give some answers to the negatives for those who were not actually there. 1. heat 11 - can not answer even the Poole fans around me had already put KK in the race (by not trying that there was no way we could win the meeting) 2. Sorry bomber was brilliant tonight he did not just fall he hit an enormous rut that had developed in the track - WELL DONE CHRIS you rode your heart out tonight I just wish more Rye fans were there to see you back on form (this just shows how one can not get the full story of a meeting from reading updates). 3. will not even try to answer that one - definitely 2 league points thrown away tonight
  7. Poole vs Rye House Weds 16/05/18

    Really can not understand it at all seems we really didn't want to win tonight . Many Poole fans around me were laughing at our lack of the t/r - fail to understand why it as not used!!!
  8. Rye House v Poole 14 May

    hope NBJ is ok after his crash last night (looked awful) - good job it happened late in the meeting - if NBJ was out earlier on we would have lost by 10 points (no other reserve cover to speak of) we were lucky last night but will come unstuck on this soon - most teams in the league this year seem to have concentrated on getting 2 good reserves in place (shows why Poole sacked James S who wasn't riding that badly for them but have improved their reserve power)
  9. think it depends on how many unsat starts there are the heat I was talking about had 6 restarts
  10. plus side though not much dust and good racing - think there were actually 7 attempts to start heat 9

    well said Rob I have no interest in stock cars etc but do admire the way their meetings are run (I have been a few times to take grandchildren) fully agree with you about the state of speedway - the fans have been saying the same thing for years but nobody listened but now I fear it is too late. At Rye we do at least have a promotion who do listen and talk to the fans we just need a few more like them within the sport.

    Various places - top of both bends ok also in the pits stand (old temp one) the replacement stand including refs box was not completely built but there will be good viewing from there. As I said after watching for a while I just got used to the viewing - we had similar viewing probs when air fences were first introduced but accept them as the norm now.

    correct it is the scb - inspection was last thurs and guess the licence was issued - no sight lines for riders are blocked BUT just had a thought a fallen rider prob now wont be able to look up and see where his partner is and wont know whether to get the race stopped.
  14. Rye House 2018

    sorry mate way out of order - don't know where you work or what you do or (what your employer thinks of you etc) why the hell do you want to know everything about everybody? - its not censorship - I don't want to know what you are paid etc why do you want to know about everyone else?
  15. Rye House 2018

    know exactly what you mean - the practice was not an official p and p but just a session that happens most Sundays for all speedway riders (amateur and pro) - everyone will be able to see but may have to stand in a different place than usual - remember all the fuss about people not being able to see when air fences were introduced at all tracks - they are just accepted now
