    Poole 2019

    Amazing all you Poole fans ,I'm an out of town contractor and last year I took in meetings in the top league at Rye House , Swindon ,Leicester and Poole. Peterborough,Ipswich,Sheffield,Newcastle and Scunthorpe in th championship. Mid season everyone around me at Poole were slating Richie Worrall for his efforts now your wanting him in your side take your club views out of the equation and watch speedway for what it is and you will enjoy it more ,how many changes to the side did Poole have and they got lucky with Bomber doing that overtake on the last lap . All now forgotten as Bomber had an inflated average due to the shenanigans wth his Rye House average .Watch and enjoy speedway as it is ,everyone wants a winning side but now a lt of speedway fans just want there side to come to tapes the following season ,just remember that and hope all sides have better luck with injuries next season Rant Over

    Scunthorpe 2019

    Stevie was very unfortunate for us last season through injuries i don't care if he's been offered extra cash or whatever ,these lads put there lives on the line for our entertainment and I wish him well but I'm sure I would rather travel 29 miles and 35 minutes to a home meeting rather than 240 miles and 4 hours to a home meeting but hey ho at least Stevie hasn't used this as an excuse unlike Ty Proctor

    Take Ryan Kingsley out the equation for now as he's learning his trade Look at Josh Baileys scores and average for Mildenhall as that is against the riders he will race against at his number in the championship this Year the young Aussie Jedd could be anything but Jake recommended him The top 3 Auty,Garrity and Allen will match most top 3 riders plus last but not least Stefan was averaging over 7 before his broken leg and comes into the team on 5.6 I think so I think we have a good balance every team in the league wanted

    We will look weaker as we have 4.5 pts less to set the team up with

    Engines

    I'm not mechanically minded so hope this isn't a daft question to some of you . On today's modern. GM engines there is a colured tab Black,green ,red etc what does this signify if anything ? Thanks in advance

    The Big Spenders

    All the talk about The Scottish Tigers ,we all know they pay more money per point,signing on fees etc but they can still only build there team to the same average as other teams . Who ever they get will be the best dressed,best bikes but speedway is a team sport and until they pull together as a team on and off track they will never win anything They will never win anything until they all pull together as I can't see the brothers continuing slinging big bucks for mediocrity every year ,a top four finish is a must as every team raises the game against them ,this from a Scunny fan who witnessed the best team ever set up last year only for it to be ravaged by injury so the best side have to be lucky with injuries too .

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Love hearing what certain riders are on per point,plus travel expenses etc from people in the know allegedly.The only people that really know are the rider and the promoter But in all honesty Glasgow riders must be on higher money due to the travelling Here is two examples of 2 random riders at different clubs this season Jason Garrity -Scunthorpe Manchester based 2hr drive to home meeting 3hrs at the meeting 2 hrs drive back to his home 7 hrs in total , Approx 180 miles to and from the meeting Lewis Kerr -Glasgow Kings Lynn based 6 hrs plus drive to home meeting 3 hrs at the meeting 6 hrs plus drive back to his home 15 plus hrs in total Aprrox 700 miles to and from the meeting So who should and will be on more money it's obvious due to the times involved ,people usually say there isn't a lot of money in speedway but I'm not having that . These men put there lives on the line for our pleasure of watching this sport and should be well paid . As these riders are all self employed ,all usually have a mechanic they get paid what the deserve ,my only worry is there isn't any creative accounting when declaring there tax returns

    Scunthorpe 2019

    Too many negative comments about the side ,as I see it most sides will have about 5 points for there reserves , 3 heat leaders so to me the riders at no 2 and no 4 are crucial to how we do . Stef looks a steal on that average so young Mr list is the key to me ,let's hope he hits the ground running

    When is the announcement of the last rider expected ? I would still love Alfie Bowtell last year Rob said he on the radar and to be fair the back end of the season he was putting in big scores for his average

    Sheffield 2019

    Isn't Zaine coming in on a 5.2 average ?
