Wow, I knew you were bitter but are you sure you had the TV on. there was more passing in heat 9 than you see all season down south, Dan Bewley beating T Batchelor twice from the back just fantastic, the 5-1 in heat 14 had the fans on their feet and if that had of been your turbo twins in years gone by we would still be hearing about it.

Yes the attendance was very poor, a mixture of Monday night speedway, it being on the TV. and as Mr Fundin as pointed out Manchester City were on their victory parade. Hopefully the powers that be will realise that they are killing speedway over here, change the race nights to suit all fans (not just the chosen few;)) and let profesional people run our sport.

What did i say about heat 9 ? read the bleedin posts.  It seems your the one A who dont read, and B didnt watch the meeting. Dont make excuses, your promotion didnt even dangle a carrot, very poor show. NOW, and what did i say about young Bewley, clearly you didnt read that either, if you did you chose to ignore it..

Yeah but who will have to pass if he misses it? A bunch of trees!!

Not sure he can give King, Cook, either Worrall or Nicholls that much of a head start.

Nah. I saw Kelly Morans Swindon debut at Cradley in the early 90's.

On tonight's showing I think he could. King isn't where he was 2 years ago, Nicholls wins or is last and just can't work the place out. Cook is struggling and he needed a strong start to the season to get his confidence up. 

Dan Bewley is great around everywhere at the moment, he is lucky he looks to be about 9 stone and on a speedway bike it really does matter. Be interesting to see if he bulks out as he gets older as missing the gate and riding round people is great, he needs to learn to mix it up on the first bend and that will come as he is so young but I worry being so lightweight he could struggle in that area of it. But.. Take nothing away from he is a special talent and doesn't look to have an ounce of arrogance that some half his talent carry. A joy to watch and they should give him the wild card for Cardiff tomorrow.

Well I watched it on TV and found it a very enjoyable meeting, excellent track and good close riding especially heat 9. No, I am not a sit at home supporter but live a 4 hour drive from both Manchester and Swindon

Good meeting imo.  If every track was like Belle Vue and Somerset then the numbers attending would rise. If you want weekend speedway then fine, just accept that it would have to be at Semi-Pro, amateur level.

Yet another rider to attack. Still having a go at a critically ill rider as well I notice. Beyond despicable.

The NSS never fails to deliver.

As always ,  I thoroughly enjoyed the racing from the NSS.  it served up a wonderful example of what speedway should be.  Fast &  furious,  with lots of close exciting racing...    One has to feel sorry for Belle Vue losing Worrall so early in the season,   I am in no doubt he would make 8/10 pts most meetings,  so to win by 10 against the reining  champs  was impressive. 

Although it was to be expected, one has to be disappointed with the crowd.      Racing on a Monday,   Live on the tele,  and coinciding with the Man City  celebration,   was always going to be difficult to attract the fans.    My only hope is that when people see recording of this thrilling meeting it will stir them to go along to the NSS and see the sport served up there.   

Young Bewley sure gave Rosco a headache .  Should he be selected for  GB  in the forth coming World Pairs completion?      Personally I think it is too early..   If the competition was only at NSS, then probably be OK , but with the final in Poland,   I'd go with Woffy,  Cook and Lambert....

As good as Dan was last night I thought Tungate was BV best rider.He has only dropped three points in the last two meetings against two very good sides.

Take heat 9 away - then look at the standard of the rest of the meeting

It comes across on tv very much as a track for the fastest bikes as opposed to the best riders

Don't remember saying that about Hyde Road, or tracks like Blackbird Road or The Shay - entertainment almost guaranteed throughout the nights at those three, thanks to the riders, not the bikes

To be fair there were only 13 or 14 races with any passing and only 3 or 4 of those had me out of my seat, so I can see where you are coming from.

With 8 different heat winners who exactly had the fastest bike? 

Sorry, 9 different heat winners.
