    Wolves v Ipswich Monday May 9th

    I meant Doyle losing his maximum, Ipswich had already won. The final score flattered the Wolves.

    Wolves v Ipswich Monday May 9th

    On the night Ipswich deserved the win. Doyle was imperious, heat 15 didn't matter. May have been a different result with Douglas but who can say for sure. Generally Wolves were poor, and as the match progressed could not see Wolves how Wolves could win it. The engine room of Becker and Jorgensen was very disappointing. Don't really attach any blame to Joregensen, expecting a guest rider to ride as well as a home rider is unrealistic dispite his score of last week. Becker is currently far below his performances of last year let alone improving. The way the Wolves team is set up the top 5 have to perform, and that didn't happen tonight. The reserves will remain reserves all year and unfortunately at the moment it doesn't appear that they will be able to soften the load on the top 5. A job well done by Ipswich. Wolves are always going to be trouble when Barker scores Round Monmore !

    The injury to Douglas should mean Ipswich's chances of getting something from the meeting have gone up quite a few notches now.

    Doyle goes well everywhere. As for Batchelor never had it in my head that he was a track specialist i.e. I never feared a visit from him. Perhaps the stats say otherwise ?

    Surely the customer says when they want the work done and not the other way around?

    Heres an out there thought, could the lights have been changed during the speedway close season ?

    You're very well informed. Very few people know about Netherton International.The restaurant there does a roaring trade in faggots & peas, pork scratchings and orange chips !!!

    These 'works' seem to have come at a very convenient time. Reminds me of a Cradley v Wolves match that was called off due to a 'waterlogged track' . One of my mates lived in Dudley and we thought might as well go for a drink as we were going to be out anyway. Passed by the track to have a look, dry as a bone. The fact that Hancock and Hamill had missed their flights back to the UK was a pure coincidence.

    I'm having a bit of a memory loss . Could you remind me which years that Poole won track of the year ?

    And still the track record holder. So good you wonder whether the timekeeper got it wrong.

    When NKI rode for Wolves we finished bottom of the table ! We also had Freddie Lindgren, so it was neither of their's fault. I enjoyed watching NKI every week, great style. He only rode 1 season for us, but I still have have a soft spot for him. Disappointing to see him score like that tonight.

    Now it is clear you know nothing. Okay Ronnie was a gater. But Sam Ermolenko produced breaktaking, unbelievable speedway, almost indescribable. Were you there every week ? My guess is no.

    Your not a speedway fan then if you want tracks to close.

    Another point about track prep. It used to be the case (and I sure someone will put me right, if it is no longer the case) that Wolves could work on the track on Sundays and perhaps Monday morning. There would be a greyhound meeting on the Monday afternoon meaning no access to the track until 6:00 pm. If there had been a change in weather conditions there would be very little time to do anything about it. Wolves do not have the luxury of permanent access to the track that others do. A point to bear in mind ?

    My goodness, the voice of reason. Wolves biggest loss has been Doc Bridgett. When he was doing the preparation Wolves consistently won track of the year awards, you could ride anywhere on the track and the racing was superb. It was praised by virtually all riders.So the logical conclusion is that there nothing particularly wrong with the shape, but the preparation needs to be spot on, and maybe that is what we haven't got at the moment.
