  1. Lambert was a class above all night. Great to see Bewley finish 2nd too. An excellent event all round with some great racing.

    Haha, it's basic business really, if the product gets worse then less people will buy it! And yes it is a shame, the decline seems steep too with no uplift in sight. I've not even been to a meeting this season.......been following the results on updates and on here of course and I do miss seeing some sort of racing live but the Premiership just seems to be a slightly better version of the Championship this season. I've enjoyed watching the Swedish Speedway on a Tuesday evening because almost every team has 4-5 really good riders as a minimum while in the UK it's like 1 or 2 maximum for each team and barely any of them are GP standard. I'll go to a few meetings in the coming months or so but nowhere near as many if the product on offer was the same level as say 2 seasons ago. Those last few home meeting of the season (including the playoffs) when we had a top 5 of Lindgren, PK, Woffinden, Thorssell and Masters was excellent viewing.
  3. Great effort but can't argue with Russia winning it, they had the strongest pairing. Woffinden was excellent and Lambert did well considering his young age/experience but just came up a bit short in the end. Great achievement on the whole for Great Britain though.

    I'm not sure what he expects when they let our only GP rider walk in the off season. I had a season ticket for the past 2 seasons but not this year, I know a few who have done the same. How can they expect crowds to stay the same/be higher when prices are the same but the team is worse?
  5. There isn't anywhere really, that's the point. Agree that neither of those venues are suitable for an event like this.
  6. Manchester isn't an easy place to get to on a Tuesday night, surely a national stadium would've been better off being built in the middle of the country? To make it more accessible for all. Anyway, the bigger issue is probably that ticket prices apparently started at around £20 despite the meeting being on BT which I guess most speedway fans have anyway.
  7. What a ride from Aarnio!
  8. A 3-3 vs Australia would basically have seen GB through, may have bottled it now.
  9. Also encourages clubs to farm a large number of assets and then hold other clubs to ransom for them, even if they have no intent of picking them to ride for the club again. The whole system is really bizarre.

    Josh Auty better than Kyle Howarth?
  11. Or one could argue that clubs would no longer have to pay a ''loan fee'' - thereby saving money.
  12. The ''asset'' system is farcical, bin it and bring the sport into the 21st century.

    Good win for Indianerna, thought a draw would've been a fair result. Didn't understand PK's decision to put Hans Anderson in Heat 14, looked slow all night.

    Plenty of dust expected then? I guess we will see but I'm looking forward to seeing this Dackarna side in action, thought they had a decent lineup last season and seem to have strengthened this time round. Having Przedpelski at Reserve is surely a big advantage.
