    Ipswich 2018

    Very disappointed Roman in Ipswich speedway, Louis and Hawkins got it wrong with there top five Connor paid the price.That top five assembled should of been able to give Connor and Danyon ( who was unlucky) time to develope the annoying thing is Garcia is not a world beater sad day hope Connor gets another club would love him to get a chance at Swindon.

    Would bring him in for Smith Matt he would be useful away as well as last night showed.

    Ipswich 2018

    Are Garcia and Wallinger going to score much more than Mountain and another home and away? Is Garcia that much better than Hume/ Mountain Ipswich had a team that should be able to carry those two reserves but other members let them down.Mountain has been sacrificed i know he has struggled at Foxhall but away he has been decent another average foreigner in Garcia gets a chance and Wallinger well no disrespect what more can you say.

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2018

    Connor Mountain could he be fitted in ? or is he to high he has just been released by Ipswich a brutal decision and is to be replaced by Garcia hardly a world beater also Wallinger gets six meetings madness.

    16•07•18 - Premiership - Wolverhampton v Swindon

    It is going to be a very tough job to get someone to replace Zach , it will be very interesting who the replacements are for the next two home fixtures against Somerset/Leicester.If there are a lack of choices maybe look to the future Tom Brennan could be an option.

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2018

    I think having the injuries you have had this year has hurt you more than the reserves and remember Manzares has had a few knocks this year.The team that started the season Worrall,Auty,Garrity,Allen,Nielsen ( an awesome top 5) who would want more than that injuries have taken there toll and guests and R/R have not been ideal.

    Mountain he really has made terrific progress and he will battle hard for every point..I have noticed he has struggled to master Foxhall yet away from home he has been terrific. I feel it is important Premier league teams are made to keep longterm faith with the Brits like Connor,Hume,Bowtell, Bickley (ect) rather than bring in a foreign also rans

    Swindon 2018

    No changes i will be happy with this side until the end of the season.If David is out for more than three weeks that is a different story then Rosco might have to have a change of plan.

    Belle Vue v Somerset 16/7 BT Sport

    Really looking forward to this it should be a cracker heat 2 looks very interesting a hard one to call.Holder/Summers/Lawson have to be on there game otherwise i can only see a home win saying that i think Somerset can hit the 40 point mark.

    Are Poole’s team changes fair?

    I agree totally about the quality of racing at the Abbey it has been very poor for quite along time now.But you prove my point about the entertainment element that needs to be sorted before you worry about the team.Personally i want to see good racing from week to week results are secondary are you happy to win everyweek but be served up with crap racing.

    Are Poole’s team changes fair?

    I don't agree with that to be honest, winning is not everything and personally i don't know anybody who stops going just because of the results.Also Swindon as a whole over the years there crowds have held up pretty well i think the biggest problem for me is the fixture list lack of meetings sometimes up to a month without a meeting.People then get used to not going and find other things to spend there money on often then just picking and choosing there meetings.There needs to weekly racing and the entertainment element should come before winning/losing some people are obsessed with winning i just don't get that part.

    Kings Lynn 2018..

    In the top five no he also is a enigma and he is not cheap.

    No.

    Swindon 2018

    Hougaard,Barker, Garrity, Kennett are all non starters for me they are not in the mix.

    Swindon 2018

    Michelson could he be an option Steve ? maybe his old average at Eastbourne is to high for me Auty and another change for Jack might be the way.

    Swindon 2018

    Could Swindon make two changes now because of David's injury??? annoying really because David was in good form at Belle Vue.
  18. Chuffed for Robert a great victory in two or three years time he will be in the GP series and I believe he will be a player.

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2018

    Really great to see Josh Auty back on track this year 13 double figure scores out of 19 matches pretty good.I just hope he can get a Prem place sorted again next year as he needs that.

    Witches v Champions Elect Comets 12/7 Championship

    Drew Kemp looks an outstanding prospect but to go straight in at Championship level now is a huge ask.If the league format next year changes and there are loads of two pointers yes that will be fine but as someone else has said the reserves are really strong in the championship now.That is why i think Mountain/Hume are doing ok to average over three because it is a tough league.Drew really looks a great prospect and my hunch is he could cut it but it wont be easy.

    Witches v Champions Elect Comets 12/7 Championship

    You make a good point and touch wood he will get there i really hope so anyway because he is a talented lad..Since i have been following speedway Sam Ermolenko( partnered. with Mike Lee) debut season was the most dangerous rider i have ever seen and look how Sam turned out.Also Malc Holloway a stylish rider had endless crashes over his career but he was technically good so some crashes are unfortunate.Fingers crossed for Danyon but as you said he has to quickly learn from his experiences.

    Witches v Champions Elect Comets 12/7 Championship

    Would you have said that to Rory ? would you have said that to Adam Roynon even going back farther in time Nigel Boocock.Injuries are a part of speedway that is really tough to take at times but we should all stick with Danyon he will get through and be stronger for it.It is great that he has Chris/ Richie both ex riders who understand the game to support him hope Danyon has a speedy recovery.

    Kings Lynn 2018..

    Auty for me is a better rider more reliable rides his balls off every race he certainly is better than Garrity in the Champs this year. Garrity is good but if you have Six meetings in a month can you rely on Garrity to ride in all of them NO is the answer.

    Memories of Norwich

    Great post and Knutsson i believe he was a real threat to anybody.I never see him ride but for me he is like ( Penhall ) could of really been a force in speedway long term both had a longterm vision apart from speedway so the public missed out.

    Memories of Norwich

    I never see Craven ( wish I had) got an autograph from my uncle handed down in pencil that is prized would never get rid of it.Moore Mirac was a class act i think I see Ronnie ride four times.People forget he had that lay/off off six or seven years but was still a class act on a par with Barry/and later Ivan.
