    With Pickering you have a real good shout a very promising rider indeed, Nielsen not for me not a fan he is our asset but I don't see the fascination with him.

    He won't be that but can those three riders get 10 /13 points a meeting between them ?? It will be diffficult Lisa, but i am really confident with this top four at home we will be hard to beat. Zach also when he is at it is very good at home he is capable of putting a point on his average.

    Our reserves are no mugs the simple fact last year was our top 5 never clicked together on the same day.This year's team looks different Musielak and Ellis can improve Batch is a good number 2 and Doyley well he is the best.

    Alot of teams who have a good top 5 Swindon did last year never have a great no 1 Swindon in 2019 have one the best.

    You can have the best reserve in the league but if you have not got the firepower it wont matter.

    Well those two reserves we have i am more than happy to take over Nielsen ( as an example) who is injury prone.Does this strength in depth really work? i would take the firepower of a few big hitters over the strength in depth theory.As a example Poole Holder and Kurtz both riders i like and rate but they will have to step up. If they dont score twenty plus points between them are Poole going to win many matches.??

    The top four we have i am very happy with alot of teams will have riders of the ability of Zach/ James so we should be fine. Dawid if he can score 4 or 5 points i will be happy a gamble but one worth taking heat 13/15 we are going to be hard to beat.

    Looking at the averages how false does Ash Morris figures look i felt as a rider he really has improved.Even in the top five he was battling away hope he can progress again.

    I might not agree with all the thing's Ford has done over the years but you have to give credit for the success he has had over a prolonged period.Nothing would give me greater pleasure if Poole can get there track sorted Lisa because i have enjoyed going to Poole over the years especially the 1980s.

    Your best bet is for your club to get the track right first before you worry about winning.!!!

    Personally Ray all i want is to be entertained if the team do well fine that is a added bonus.In recent years the racing at Swindon has been poor hopefully with a different shaped track that might help in that regard.Speedway is an entertainment sometimes people forget that and some fans are prepared to watch dross as long as the team is winning.

    He is not bitter about it like myself did not agree with it then and feels the same now.This is one of the biggest problems we have in British speedway stupid rules no continuity and a win at all costs mentality.Around that period if you look back Ford had a nightmare bringing in the likes of Kennett, Lahti, Starke, Zengota, Worrall, ( ect) switching riders mostly out of desperation.

    That is not the point he is British and was pushed out, Jackobsen could be decent Nielsen did well but i am not a fan glad Zach got the nod over him at Swindon in 2019 Shanes was shabbily treated end of.

    Belle Vue 2019

    I am not convinced with this side,looks to many ifs/but's in it but i believe Fricke can really kick on again and Lidsey is a talent.Bjerre for Cookie? not for me Cookie all day long Worrall and Dan are the key can they both comeback from injury i hope so.

    Great to have James on board and i have to say i am well chuffed with our side for 2019.James / Zach can surprise a few James is a rider who excites with his never say die approach and Zach is a rider i really like it should be an exciting season Doyley also to push for the WC again.

    Swindon 2019

    In heats 13/15 we are going to be mightily strong David i feel can do a job how many points do we expect 4 or 5 ?? in a tough top five position.The reserves it is going to be difficult if it was say Zach and maybe Brennan ( unlikely he impressed me) at home we would cope away a different ball game.Whoever it is the reserve position is going to be difficult to fill really happy with the side though Wolves are the only side at the moment that worry me.

    Poole 2019

    Did he ride in the pairs meeting Foamfence with Julian Parr ???that version of Lee was awesome his performance reminded me of his brilliant Longtrack title performance the flying hairpin.

    Poole 2019

    Simmo also was a legend a class act but i cant remember to many riders blowing Carter away like Lee did the last three months in 83 Lee was back on it the rest is history.

    Poole 2019

    Can you remember the 83 version? beat Carter 4 -0 in the helmet also beat Erik i know the longevity was not there but at his best i have not seen to many better than him at Poole..

    No Michael Lee in the seven very strange.

    Shanes was treated shabbily at Poole and there is a rider there who can improve his average.He also is an exciting rider to watch be great to see him join the Robins.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Be great if your club took him he would come on a bundle he can average 5 plus in the Championship no problem just needs a bit of luck.

    Is James Shanes to high? he would be my choice we cant fit them in now but Jordan Stewart and Josh Pickering would be two riders i would of liked to look at.

    Speedway Star in the winter

    A superb edition of the SS this week loved the British Final yesteryear articles keep up the good work.

    Wolves 2019

    I think Thorssell has to stay Wolves need to make there home track a fortress again.Considering his nasty injury i felt Jacob had a reasonable year and will improve again in 2019 the side assembled so far will take some beating at home.
