    Birmingham 2018

    Wouldnt mind a home and away challenge against Wolves run to Premiership level but I doubt they will go for that. Probably an individual with all the top NL boys

    Birmingham v Peterborough ICL

    It was good to see the cycle speedway demonstration at Perry Barr the other night, your only based down the road in Perry Park so its good to forge links with other clubs. I will have to go and watch cycle speedway sometime, never seen other than on wednesday! Its not perfect and as we saw with Garrity withdrawing from the meeting, it means you can only track 1 rider in the nominated heats of 13 and 14. Why couldnt one of the riders that were in Heat 14 also ride in Heat 13 as cover, aslong as their average is lesser than Garrity. I do think the six man teams can work and without doubt we need a change to the current format as there's less and less riders now. It just needs a bit more thought, it shouldn't hinder the progress of young brits which is my worry.

    I thought the crowd was good, only seen Cradley at home a better attendance. Considering its an extra 3 pound tonight for a challenge match aswell. They will be pleased. Racing I agree wasnt great but again its a challenge. It was good to see Barker back and on on fire, if we do move up would love him back. That Gappmeier looks half decent aswell.

    I'm still looking forward to this match despite no Masters, I honestly couldnt give two hoots about the Play offs now. Even if we qualify we will have 2 guests and R/R for the semi finals minimum and realistically what chance do we have anyway. So for me tonight is more important because we need to start looking forward to 2019, I think most brummies fans would be in favour of a move up and we all need to turn out because it wont happen if we dont give Peter and David Mason our full support.

    Coventry v Birmingham & Stoke 9-9-18

    I was very disappointed with the track at Leicester yesterday, especially the third and fourth bend. The hole on the third bend contributed to that big crash in Heat 13 with Ayres and Mountain, Ayres did go in a bit hot up the inside but he hit the hole which launched him into Mountain, hopefully both riders will be okay. There was a race when Morley hit that same hole twice in two laps which sent him off towards the fourth bend fence, thankfully on both occasions he rescued it. Then on another lap I though Morley was packing up going round that bend but he was just riding like that to avoid the holes! Everyone says the racing at Leicester is rubbish but they should focus on getting a more smoother and consistent surface to race on first, because how can expect ridings of any level but especially the national league guys to go flat out when the track is like that?

    Mildenhall v Brummies NL Sat 9th Aug

    Tom Bacon has a suspected fracture to his back, so season likely over. Sam Woods a broken arm according to Brummies site . My best wishes to them both.

    Completing Fixtures

    Its crazy that after the summer we have had we are in a situation now, where theres quite a number of fixtures that might not be fitted in before the cut off. I see Stoke v Eastbourne is off and i dont see how that can be fitted in before in before the cut off with Eastbourne a saturday track aswell. Look at Coventry they are having to run double headers, they still haven't arranged Buxton home and away and Mildenhall at home, the cut off is in two weeks!! Every year this happens, why bother with the National Trophy and KOC cup early in season, the bread and butter should be the league and that should be priority. Have the other competitions for after the league fixtures have been completed.

    Using R/R for Walker isnt great but its alot better than R/R for Danyon. Hume is good for 8-10 minimum, I dont see Flint, Laurence, Embleton and Davies scoring that to be honest

    Mildenhall v Brummies NL Sat 9th Aug

    A point would be as good as a win and probably result of the season. This Mildenhall side is unbelievable and its been a number of years since we have seen a side as good as this grace third tier speedway. We have to bear that in mind tonight, as long as its not a mauling I will be content.

    Plymouth v Brummies NL Fri 7th Sep

    Well that was a bit unexpected, didnt expect to win let alone get all 4 points. It keeps us in with a hope of a playoff place with 3 meetings left. A big thanks to the guests that performed so well, Brennan has guested for us a few times now and each times hes done well. Really pleased for Josh, I know Plymouth had Dugard withdrawn early on ( hope he gets well soon) but thats a great score from him. Tom fantastic yet again at the top, big score after big score this season. A class act at this level for sure.

    Coventry v Birmingham & Stoke 9-9-18

    Thats if you believe the Coventry press release, Brummies site is saying its Jenkins and R/R for Walker!. I just dont know why we would have R/R for Hume when Walker is out injured and below him in the averages.

    Whats the betting the BSPA will bottle it and keep things as they are now.

    I meant if we stay NL, I dont think its a given we are moving up.

    Stoke v Brummies NL Sat 1st Sep

    I am honestly not surprised by this result, when we have two weak reserves then how can you expect to go anywhere and win with ease. We had 4 decent riders and maybe if all of them fire then we should win but we are always treading a fine line, if one or two dont quite perform like tonight then we are screwed. I just dont see us finishing in the playoffs now, I think it will probably be Mildenhall, Eastbourne,Kent and Belle Vue. Its been for me another disappointing season, I think we were definitely spoiled in 2015 and 2016, the last two years have been frustrating. Too many injuries and a side that has been really unbalanced which is never helpful if your trying to get into the playoffs. Well done Stoke, would love to see Connor Coles riding for us next year. Saw him the other week and he was great then beating Shanes and Bacon in the same race.

    Plymouth v Birmingham postponed

    There's no doubt in mind the call off is genuine and having seen the picture of the track its the right decision. At the end of the day calling this match off would be the last thing the Plymouth promotion would have wanted. The cut off is about 3 weeks away and with them just outside the playoffs a call off is the last thing they need. Also like any club they lose money for having to call meetings off, this meeting would have had a good crowd for sure esp with it being the last friday in August. Just one of them things.
