    Have you seen him at P'borough? ?? When you're in a "stupid mini so called PL league the first away win is vital. It covers home defeats to Belle Vue etc. Ryan is a great signing. He can ride the away tracks.... just need three heat leaders to go with him!!!

    LabCon propose the Guest rule & Rider Replacement rules are combined under the new system called: Gender Replacement

    Too true... And when I got even older.. I spannered for a young cub rider who progressed to doubling up... helped try to sort his late payments out etc... often 15+ meetings in arrears... and that was mid 70's..... some things don't really change!

    In the 60''s the second half final often provided the most passing and the home number one passed two riders with a swoop around the last bend to win at the chequered flag. Everyone was entertained, I went home happy and couldn't wait for next week.... ... when I got older I was told the money was shared equally in the last race and the riders agreed who would pass who. It's when a Promoter promoted entertainment. A big thank you to Bill Bridgett and Mike Parker for my formative years!!!

    I'm still undecided if it will be an announcement of a new "five year plan" or a change of league name? It wouldn't be Speedway if the rumours didn't preceed the Papal smoke from the BSPA chimney!
  6. Similarly the supermarket bags of Roysters crisps have gone down from 25g to 21g, with the price staying the same! So I'm now trying Seabrook's. Any more Speedway parallels out there?

    Wolves 2019

    Didn't hear any announcement other than re-admission tickets valid next season. With the Spoons running "The Golden 'Ommer" tomorrow week it leaves no available dates.

    Wolves 2019

    Bring spare biro''s today folks. Rumours / Jungle drums suggest P'boro have Richard Lawson and Kyle Newman in for Wright & Ostergaard..... and now no Tungate, Proctor (shoulder injury),... and Garrity deciding not to travel. In comes Tom Perry and old friend r/r . Think Poole might have the right idea.
  12. Lets just have one meeting a year, run over 20 heats and call it a World Final.

    Do we get to see the British Champion riding for Peterborough tomorrow?

    Poole 2020

    Looks like Poole are the Man Utd of speedway after all? Both going downwards. Seriously though can a Wednesday PL race night be negotiated? It might help King''s Lynn as well.

    Wolverhampton 2020

    I like to support a team that I can fully associate with as Wolves. So no problems with Jacob Thorssell & Luke Becker. My issue is that the other five also rode for Edinburgh, Leicester, Sheffield, Somerset & Somerset!!! I appreciate / reluctantly accept that this is unlikely to be solved in the near future. So at least keep the same seven. Just don't put them out on a wet track
