Nick Morris really needs to sort out his scoring away from home. The Swindon reserves are woeful, I thought Mitchell Davey was bad, then Jack Smith comes along.

You really are a sad case :rolleyes:

And Nick's averages including tonight are 8.89 home, 7.80 away. Not bad is it....

Bewley looks better than Ward at that age.. People talked about Ward as the most natrually gifted rider ever.. could be overtaken here 

Must say I agree with you there a special talent and not a numpty off track like ward.

Would love to see Bewley make Cardiff as the wild card. After the way he passed Batch twice tonight surely hes got to be fav for the British final.

There seemed a fair few people on the backstraight, crowd in the main stand were all cramped into the middle it appeared.

Couple of grear races. Bewley breezing past Batchelor outside & in was impressive but Musielak v Tungate was the best race.

Well done both teams.

I remember when I used to watch Rickardsson riding for Kings Lynn's and I remember him missing gates loads and over taking everyone for fun. Bewley reminds me of that sometimes when he gets going. He rides a different line around the NSS to almost everyone else but it works.

Couldnt give a monkeys what you say mate. theres no more that 400 there. What a way to drive fans away. And wheres all this passing on this super dupper track. farce.

A poor meeting by NSS standards but in the end far better than the borefest I witnessed when we were down your place.

just got in, what a night, fantastic racing, great presentation and chase the Ace. Race of the night or even season up to date Tungate and Musielak just fantastic, Dan as usual is awesome.

Swindon deserved an away point, but it just slipped away in the final few heats, Belle Vue well deserving of the 3 points.

If more tracks in this country could serve up racing like the Tungate and Musielak heat then the sport would be in a far better state.

That was class.

Well known that Manchester has 2 of the top football teams in the UK, one of them won the premier league with a record number of points. Tonight, starting earlier then the BV speedway did, Manchester City tem were doing a bus tour of the city centre probably ending at the town hall.  Maybe thats where some of the potential speedway crowd were at.

I know its been said before, but looking at the age group of the crowd, it must have been knocking on, maybe averaging well over 45. But there again, any young kid who follows football and speedway would most likely want to see the top football team doing a bus tour. Maybe...

No surprise that you have yet another dig at a rider still critically ill in hospital. What an utter disgrace. :mad:

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.
