    Gonna be a bit weird seeing Drew ride for Cradley as well as Mildy in the National Trophy competition, only this could happen in speedway ! just can't get my head round it....

    Looks like the fans have got everything that they wanted: Rob Henry still helping the youngsters and Mildy will be defending the National Trophy....oh and concessions fixed at the same price, all looks promising this Season at West Row !
  3. Rather have seen him get a team place then we would know for sure, At the end of the day seeing him ride in a normal fixture is a very different prospect from seeing him ride in finals when his other fixtures have finished early
  4. Point is though Fuel Taps everyone has the same chance to get a team place....whose fault is that ? All I am simply saying is that "untested" rider's coming in at the last moment of the Season may not be a fair reflection of their genuine ability and no wonder people feel agrieved when they are changed for someone that does not go well at that particular track....i.e Josh G swap I love watching Scotty ride, he is a legend but it didn't seem right him coming in last Season and thats why alot of fans were upset, I'm not blaming him personally
  5. Surely the whole point of speedway is to ride against each other, reach a point based system for each rider to provide a balanced set of rider's. If one rider suddenly drops down from a league he hasn't been riding in, especially when its a final, how can anyone judge whether its a fair replacement ? For example he was swapped last season for Josh G, who most people would suggest Foxhole is not his favourite track for an Ipswich specialist
  6. Having a fair team is more important to most fans than whether a rider can earn some extra cash at the end of the Season in the Final's
  7. For what its worth I think the BSPA have got it right....you ask alot of Ipswich fans what they thought of Scott coming in and riding in all the finals at the last minute last Season when not ridden previously regularly at the lower level ! Its quite simple..if he wants to ride CL, get a team place then we'll love to see him, but its not right to cherry pick the glory finals when the serious stuff starts just because his regular rides had finished.

    What ?...how can that be fair, can't recall Scotty riding at all this Year in the Championship !

    Its a tough ask for Ipswich, but I've seen it done before in a Play Off Final, a few 5-1's and its all to play for, but I think if we have got Tom Bacon again its an up hill task...

    All these mind games about rider's not being fully fit is trying to lull Ippo into a false sense of security...Sheff. will all come out with all guns blazing I recon
  11. Really should have bin alot more of a lead but the rain def. went in Boro's favour, we threw away loads of points and looked like Smiling Sam played a mind game on Schleiny when the rain hit (pretended he was all for pulling out at the line and then went off like a train for four laps !) and all in all it cost Ippo dearly, but we'll see if its enough !
  12. Weather forecast looking better now.....
  13. Obviously you don't know him............

    Thought Rob Chandler was quite good last night The music was a bit better, but I would like to see the whole starting music changed ...its been the same for Years, come on guys lets have a bit more artistic interpretation next season ?

    Surely the advertised time should be when the "event" starts, if you were new to the sport and you got there 15 minutes after the riders had been presented and you would think you were late !...na its fine as it is and thats the way it should be I don't see why all of these people from other clubs keep making remarks on what Ippo do, and as for numbers on the terraces, ok they can be alot better but I think they are pretty good this Season as a whole and ceratinly alot better than most clubs...
