    You are quite a strange bloke to fathom out , i go to Swindon speedway early on race night's Lee Kilby is the most approachable bloke ever.No crap no bulls... he is what he is honest polite straight to the point and his work with trying to get the younger generation involved has been awesome.Loads of young uns who get to look around the pits get the odd autograph it is refreshing to see he has done a great job he is like his dad a great personality kind and approachable.

    Who are your top five riders in 2019.

    I remember once you did mention that Ipswich were looking or should? look at Rasmus. This year he has been exceptional and he is good from the back a really exciting rider.

    Swindon 2019

    We all moan at certain times but last night showed just how good speedway can be.At times in the last five years i have been going to Swindon on habit only this year i have really enjoyed it the club has made great strides.The track really looks exciting smooth and AOrlov tells me they will be looking to build the banking up gradually on bends 1/2 which will make it even better i just hope in November some positive decisions are made in our sport.

    Douglas, Pickering, Stewart, are riders i like but could a young brit rule come in? Anders.That would be great to get the same six riders back continuity my other thought was leaving Claus out as i want at least one senior reserve all season and Ellis P is not quite that yet.

    Totally agree DOG chuffed for Lee and especially Alun, Lee Kilby is a massive plus for the club he has great people skills and he is what a modern day promoter is all about.On next year Dog team building which way would you go top heavy or a different approach what do you think.?
  8. How was Leicester v Kent ?? City how was the Thompson twins , Mulford ( fell leading ht2 ??) and Hume.

    Ipswich 2020

    Totally agree people are obsessed with changing riders just for the sake of it also as a fan the entertainment factor has to come into it and Heeps does excite at Foxhall.Yes have some new faces but you have to keep some riders who the fans can relate to otherwise it is just changes galore every season.At Swindon we have some tough decisions to make but i would like to think we will keep at least four of the title winning side for the 2020 season.
  10. I have really enjoyed this season the racing at the abbey has been a massive improvement and i believe the track has the potential to get better and better. Bend two now really is a bend you can attack hairy at times and Doyley and Adam were really pushing themselves to the limit.You sometimes forget just how skillful these riders are and i predict a big year for Doyley in the series next year he is getting back to his best.Congratulations to Alun /Lee they are the future of the club and i am especially pleased for Alun his record is a record anyone would be proud of and after his shabby treatment in the England affair he put two fingers up to certain people last night.Ipswich still team of the season for me a great return to the top flight.

    Which 3 riders would you have in team for 2020.

    Doyle. Ellis. Perks certainties - with Pickering, Stewart, Wright riders that could be considered.
  12. I think it is a interesting idea DC2 well worth looking into there was one period in the season where we had quite a few meeting's close together and personally that is what i like.

    Play-off final

    The Thompson twins both have made great progress City?? Hume at home has not been below double figures all year a solid year for him do you know City why Danyon is not in the NLRC line up.

    Your opinion of course but what Musielak did in 2017 was not a surprise, but Rasmus really was only meant to be a number 2 replace Lampard.He has ended up not that far behind Batch for the no 2 spot which is unbelievable also this year we would of won the double would we have done that without the Lampart change.?Also without the rasser change there was a real danger of us not even making the play/offs at all.
  15. Sidney the robin

    Swindon 2019

    Overall his average is over 8 ( green sheets i presume don't include play offs?? ) are you not happy with him DC2 ? .Put it another way without him we would not of won anything that is for certain.

    Swindon 2019

    Musielak was a great signing but everyone knew what potential he had even the Wolves fans said that he did find it hard at the difficult Monmore as a home track.But surely you never expected Jensen to double his 4.31 average?.Jensen has been mentioned by alot of people over the last few years and Rossiter nearly signed him before.This year he got it together in both league's all i expected was for him to score what Lampard did mainly by scoring more on the road.

    Swindon 2019

    After a great win last night you have to say the vision of Rossiter sticking to a cracking top five has worked a treat.The changes at reserve has worked wonders and there contribution has made a huge difference.Rasmus well what can you say none of us could of predicted his scoring potential he has been immense great from the back as well he usually makes at least one pass a meeting.The signing of Jensen has to be one of the best signing's to help win a championship since Peter Ravn moved from Belle Vue to Cradley in 1983.

    I think that is why the track had to be changed at the Abbey Steve, the bikes have changed and the straights were to long for the bends which had been changed over the years.I preferred yesteryear racing mainly because of the variation of tracks ie) as an example. you could visit Monday to Sunday. Exeter, Leicester, Poole, Sheffield, Hackney, Belle Vue, Eastbourne/ Mildenhall a real mixed bag.
  19. Sidney the robin

    Canterbury Crusaders

    I would say Steve alot of tracks had a real home advantage in those days and that balanced thing's up and there were alot of homer riders then.Now i dont think that is the case mainly because the tracks have changed and the riders usually get to ride them more than once a season.

    Canterbury Crusaders

    I went to Crayford only the once a very technical track in the Woodsy years he was a rider i liked and at Eastie.Milton Keynes i went to a fair few times from 1978/79 i quite enjoyed my visits more so because i got to see the top NL boys ie) Owen (bros) Jacko, Sampson ( ect).The tracks that i really enjoyed visiting were Hyde Rd, The Shay, Owlerton, Blackbird Rd, County Ground, Waterden Rd great days.

    How would you rate Crayford and Milton Keynes as tracks. Steve.?
  22. Happy with the win but again the weather spoiled it for everyone and any home advantage the Witches could of had was gone.Overall well done to the Witches for having a great season really worked hard and brightened up the league with there team spirit. Swindon for the last few years have gone the top heavy route in team building and this paid off today with winning and Batchelor still only scoring four points.As others have mentioned Perks has been superb even the other night scoring only a point or two battling for every lap he has made great strides in his career this year i hope he is a robin in 2020.
  23. Great post and Lee has done a great job and so has Mr Bishop at the Isle of Wight who is a real hands on guy.

    Poole 2020

    I thought Swindon was in your blood once, maybe it could be Belle Vue instead in 2020.

    Poole 2020

    Do you feel any different Gemini mindset wise from say 20 years ago.?? would there be any speedway in the UK without the 40 plus year olds.?? That is the biggest problem we have enticicing a new generation to replace the old one's me included.
