  1. Congratulations to Anders Rowe. All this whinging us really rather tedious. The early calling of the result may not be ideal but it is a well established mechanism (anyone remember the great Kasprzak Suchanek run- off for the World u21 title?)

  4. Probably because the sight lines from the refs box at Swindon are very poor and the ref can't rewatch every heat on the off chance, unless you want to be hanging round on the windy terraces all night.

    Play-off final

    Ruddick's greensheet is 6.67. The weighted average of the riders who replaced him was 6.63. How is that an advantage? PS His actual 2019 average ( exc bonus) from official fixtures is 8

    Ipswich 2020

    He had a Polish licence in 2018 and actually rode in the Polish Championship. Not sure about his current situation though.

    Play-off final

    400 by my reckoning
  8. Think it would have been much bigger if the meeting had been on a Saturday like the well attended semi final. And on the subject of Ellis Perks - his CL average has risen from 3.95 to 6.4 this season making him one of the most improved riders in British speedway this season. His current CL average is greater than Rasmus Jensen's was at the same age (5.92 for Somerset in 2015)
  9. Why not take the refereee's word for it? He's an ex-rider ... so by your logic infallible.

    California name debate

    To quote from some of the material I have: "The name California appears on local maps as early as 1761." 1930s adverts refer to "Longmoor speedway at California." Apart from the country park there is little evidence of California as a settlement, the church and hall already referred to and the double mini roundabout. These are generally shown as having Finchampstead addresses.
  11. And on Saturday where would Perks, Ras Jensen and Vissing be?

    Play-off final

    Faced with seven meetings to arrange at fairly short notice in October and endless rain I imagine that the principle factor for Leicester's management is simply getting the meetings on.

    Forecast looks iffy. Hopefully it will turn out better than last year's deluge

    All 4 back question

    I have a similar recollection. Was it a PL play-off between Rye House and Sheffield? 2007?

    A reminder of the last official fixture between Championship and Premier League teams http://www.sheffield-speedway.com/news.php?extend.2439 Sheffield 32 Leicester 58.
