    Poole should be docked points and fined

    I am no Poole fan but some of the s... thrown at them at times is now getting to be a bit tiresome.I think British speedway is in big big trouble and i think the speedway family need to stick together now otherwise our sport in this Country is doomed.

    We dropped Jason because becoming World Champion meant that he would not of come cheap so they went another route.It is easy to look back and say in hindsight we should of done this should of done that.My take on our failure is at times certainly away we just have not been good anough i can except that the top five when it clicks is more than good anough as it showed early in the season.

    To be honest Gresh i thought we would barely get a top four finish but if Morris kicked on and the top five clicked we would be fine.Now we have to beat Belle Vue / Poole at home be interesting to see if Wolves make changes they look vulnerable now and could be the one to miss out.

    That is the design of the side your theory is to have everybody chipping in with points for me we have failed because we are not good anough at the moment.Our top five on form should easily carry one reserve Zach as he showed in the week has more than pulled his weight need now to beat Belle Vue and Poole at home.

    Nothing to do with the reserves Batch 2 points only tonight ( he has been great all year) Adam who again has been really good only 5 Tobi a slow start finished strongly.The Swindon top five has not clicked anough in the last two months that is the design of the side if our top five fail it does not matter what the reserves do.

    Swindon - Wolves 30.7.18

    Well speedy i certainly have seen a lot worse than that last night in the last three years but what you say is not just happening at Swindon it is generally happening at a lot of places.Apart from Somerset and the awesome Belle Vue in the Premiership most of the racing is pretty average are the bikes to quick now i think so.
  7. This year speedway in the UK has hit a alltime low can it recover what would you do.?My opinion is one big league has to happen personally i dont think it will but it has to happen in my opinion.It would be great to be able to get at least 20 home meetings a year unlike now where sometimes we have had 1 meeting in five weeks.I would have a rule where 2 young brits go at reserve so therefore the clubs now have to live within there means meaning the likes of Doyley will have to be a thing of the past.

    Swindon - Wolves 30.7.18

    Not a bad night and well done to the Swindon management for producing a pretty good track tonight.That is the best the track has looked for quite a while there was some very interesting racing tonight.Batch was very good Zach rode very well rode some great lines and is improving fast and for the Wolves Thorssell was always in the mix he fought very hard as did Howarth and Tom Bacon i was very impressed with him tonight.

    Tony Briggs How Good Could He Have Been.?

    His team behind him did a great marketing job to get him that sponsorship.

    Swindon - Wolves 30.7.18

    A big night for the club tonight hope the crowd is decent and the racing is a whole lot better.An even contest i believe but a home win for me be very interesting to see how Tom Bacon goes as he is a good trapper and must be one of the most improved riders in all leagues.

    Tony Briggs How Good Could He Have Been.?

    I think the opposite because his dad was so good a legend the pressure on him was immense straight from the start.

    2019 One big league will it happen.?

    The only thing. I would say ORLOV is how many people get in for free? that has to stop i think,?.Tomorrow I hope for a 13/14. 00 crowd but the track needs to be better fingers crossed eh!

    2019 One big league will it happen.?

    You know more than most on this issue ORLOV Swindon usually get 1000 plus i would say 1200 plus everyweek on a good day v Poole , zummerset even more I think even with the delay in fixtures ( 5 weeeks?) the crowd is holding up ok.

    Tony Briggs How Good Could He Have Been.?

    Style wise he was so much like the old man i can remember him signing his faberge deal with Kevin Keegan and Henry Cooper.Personally i think he would of made it and been world class an exciting rider to watch just like Barry.

    2019 One big league will it happen.?

    It is common knowledge that most clubs have hit trouble this year even the mighty Poole have problems and there gates have been down.My club Swindon i think the gates have held up quite well considering the crap entertainment dished out week to week but there are rumours they are in big trouble.Something has to change but talks and plans need to start now dont leave it until there good old jolly up meeting in Tennerife and rush things through.

    2019 One big league will it happen.?

    I. was thinking without the likes of Doyley/Iversen riding these two teams as examples shows the level of rider we will have. - Poole 1.Kurtz. 2.Starke 3.J.Holder. 4. Klindt 5.Jacobsen. 6.Lidsey?? 7.Jenkins. - Ipswich. 1.King. 2. Heeps 3. Schlein 4.Covatti. 5.H.Andersen. 6.Hume. 7.Kemp.
  17. Certainly right there the reserves are important a test match that always sticks in mind was in 1983 at Sheffield England v USA. Neil Collins who was a reserve got a very important 5.1( with Carter) over Schwartz/ Sigalos really turned the match.

    I would love Tom Brennan or maybe Georgie Wood to get a chance i dont think Eastbourne would allow it though.For me to have any chance of winning anything our top 5 have to click again the extra odd point at reserve wont make that much of a difference.Also would it not be better to have Zach at no 7 or is there another crazy rule that will not allow it.?

    If that is the case waytogo28 then that will be it for me speedway will be a thing of the past. Fingers crossed you are wrong but if i was a bookmaker your assumpion i would have as 1/5 on.!!!!

    Forget about the winning you need to be more concerned about whether you have a club to support in the future.

    25•07•18 - Premiership - Kings Lynn v Swindon -

    Poole have made endless changes but the side is not that much better no in/out number 1 ok Jacobsen is the real plus.And yes the loyalty thing should be the norm and if a new rule was put in place that you could only stick with the original 1/7 and change only if a rider got injured your side would be nowhere.That is because they got it wrong building there team, also people forget about Swindon that we are weak at reserve but our top five need to be clicking at one time that has not happened for a long time now but if it does the side is a match for anybody.
  22. Spot on Frankie local stars often got chances in those test matches i remember the likes of Les Sharpe, Arnie Haley,Dave Younghusband, Tony Lomas, Bob Kilby (etc) getting caps they were all good riders in there own right.
  23. 1968 Swindon Great Britain v Sweden. Hunter ,Luckhurst. - Lars Jansson B. Larsson all at number 7/8 6 man teams in a 18 heat format..

    With who? the team in place will see us into the playoffs then all to play for the side essembled at the start of the season i thought top four so nothing's changed for me.
  25. Sidney the robin

    Swindon 2018

    Would that make that much of a difference ? we need our top five firing before anything else.Also if i remember rightly Smith beat Clegg 2.1 in there meetings a couple of months ago.
