  1. Dropping himself can be nothing other than withdrawing his services. What else can withdrawing services be?
  2. Me neither. Especially with the form that Bellego's been in lately.
  3. I agree. He is a Reading fan who has moved to Swindon and who posts regularly on the Swindon Robins Facebook page using his real name.

    One League - Matt Ford

    There's been plenty of strange guest situation since I started going back in 1974. Bob Kilby riding against Swindon twice in one evening for 2 different sides. John Davis guesting for Oxford in place of John Davis. I don't see how the Max Fricke example is any worse.

    Britain sets its own rules on immigration from Australia and all non EU countries. It's nothing to do with the EU whether Australians can come here or not.

    All I know is that Bellego had struggles at times at Swindon last year but I would have been disapointed if this change had been made.

    Not a move that I, personally, would have been happy with if it was my team. I think it's a panic move based on numbers. Bellego looked good at Belle Vue and would have found form. Kennett is ok, but seems like a pointless change made for change's sake.
  8. I've just realised what The Motortbike Show is. An old friend of mine sometimes appears on it - a guy called Allen Millyard. He's a bit of a bike genius, and we went to school and did an apprenticeship together. He used to fix my FS1-E!
  9. Also, on the first episode of the program 63 Up they had a cabby on and showed some old footage of him at Hackney stadium from when he was younger.
  10. It's a bit confusing, because Toby is listed above Adam Ellis on the averages page of the BSPA website, but Adam's average (6.76) is higher than Musielak (6.41). Rather odd, but presumably the averages are correct - meaning Troy wouldn't be able to take a ride. Which weakens us a lot with our weak reserves having to take a couple of the rides.

    Could have been. I've no idea.

    Scunthorpe 2019

    A question for Scunthorpe fans. Who races there called Ed? The reason I ask is I was listening to the radio this morning, and there was a guy on the phone. When he did his "shout outs" he said hi to "everyone at Scunthorpe speedway, where I race". Then he requested a Busted track. Just wondered if anyone knows who it was. If anyone is curious and wants to listen, it was at about 5.55 this morning on Radio One.

    I don't agree it needs to be higher. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that this rule was part of the reason Zach and James struggled. Whatever happened, they were going to be the lowest average riders in the league. In the past, other sides might have had 2 or 3 pointers in at reserve with whom they were on a par or better than. Instead they were always going to be the weakest riders in the league and every other side had reserves of a much higher standard.
