    Poole v Ipswich. Prem. 18th July 2019

    It shows the improvements in the track???? Still, if that was the best they could show, no wonder Ford wants out! BORING!!!!!!!! Fill in your programme after bend 2. YAWN!

    Does his rolling average apply once he has ridden a meeting then it is his 2017 average & any scores up to the 23rd for a new average starting 1st August(I think that was how I interpreted Kennett's & Ellis's averages early this year)

    EH ???????????????????????
  4. As far as I know, in an anti-clockwise direction!

    Redcar v Scorpions 12.7.19 League

    Another edit! Location changed from "all" to guess (my error in not noticing team before)

    Redcar v Scorpions 12.7.19 League

    Jenga thought & posted before me so, yes, your words were taken as implying .................................................................... but then again, it was Jenga! In the SS, the Redcar promotion looked at the bigger picture when signing Riss & knew this fixture was a risk so it seems the promotion were happy but the fans are up in arms. In your profile, it says your team is "all" but it seems to be "all bar ????????" Reading most of your postings though it seems you are a "know it all" & you have got into a few disagreements with others, but again, I reiterate, the forum is based on opinions. You even edited one of your posts after finding out Riss misses 2 meetings(this week & next) but are granted a facility next week. Well done. Birmingham were in the same boat earlier this season after signing Ellis, missing one of his 1st meetings then posters saying why sign him if he was going to miss meetings then changing their tune, surmising it was a good move as he had a high converted average so guests would be easy to find. Since then, he has not missed many meetings but will be missing this weekend.

    Your original post, though, was implying.

    If they have an 8 point Champ average, they will probably be doubling up anyway.

    Bewley!!!!!! If teams had took a chance on him, like Belle Vue, then he should & would have been doubling. Now, saddled with a 9.5-10 average, I would think we will never see him again in the CL but we do have Cook who shouldn't be there, losing about 10-14 points in 55 odd races & unbeaten around Glasgow, even by team mates, riding 30+ 1st places.

    Where has this been said as it is not strictly true. "Tried" is the word used on the Bears website & it is yearbyred's opinion on here. Until we know the truth, if it comes out, then we can only surmise with our opinions. Available dates & rider availability might be at a premium. Two sides to every story though.

    We have suffered, also, this last couple of years with rider unavailability, injured or otherwise, with inadequate cover but took it on the chin. Scunthorpe & Redcar race on Fridays & there isn't a Friday spare until September where both teams are not riding. You raced the other week on a Tuesday, before signing Riss, & he rides in Sweden on a Tuesday so it will be interesting to hear or see the full explanation as have just seen snippets of team news on the Redcar website. The result is still in doubt as you have 2 riders that have hit top form & could easily score 25-30 points between them(depending on the no of rides taken & circumstances) so the others do not have to do much. We have riders that are suffering with away form so I think a tight result is expected.

    They knew when they signed Riss that he would have other commitments which would take priority. Why do you not think it is the clubs fault?

    Scunthorpe 2019

    Swindon have signed Vissing as cover for Stefan as it will be around another 2 weeks before he might be ready to ride again.
  14. The Updates site nearly always uses home texter's so 80-90% time will be a biased opinion but that is what they are on here so people say it as they see it. Ostergaard now a done deal but sods law he scores 11 in his last meeting for Redcar, then sacked & now Bukhave has his best meeting & moved on. Both deals were done before the sackings though. as need to give 3 days for checks to be made before the announcements. Good on both riders for still trying their best.
  15. That's an ex(almost) Comets team that got beat. So now, who do you go to see, The Tigers or The Bears?
