It would be a shame if no home fans turned up to watch Berwick win on Saturday night:rofl:

Cookie is giving him lessons on how to gate

If only Richard Lawson had done the same with covatti, heeps, Campton & Riss last night. 

He was trapping a treat. Especially against cookie.

Could have sworn Rory is currently number 1 and has been for the majority of the season.

And when you say big hitter only one rider has an average higher, that being Cook. So in reality Rory is a pretty big hitter

Should stick with his day job whatever that is. 

Bring in a decent track man. 

Said this before. Bob Ellis is bloody useless as a trackman. Just because someone has given many years of service doesn’t automatically make them good at what they do. 

Could I do better? Well no I couldn’t. That’s why I haven’t offered my services. 

If you do offer your services and take on the role, then you have to be prepared to accept criticism if it looks like you’re doing a poor job. 

Again as I’ve said before, there is a reason why Ipswich have never been shortlisted for track of the year, voted for by referees. 

Its because the trackman is crap and doesn’t consistently produce a good racing surface. Simple as that. 

Do the people of Ipswich a favour Mr Ellis, and retire from track prep duties. 

Let someone else have a bash that just MIGHT, produce a decent racing strip. 

I may just then pop along to watch.

I have criticised last nights track but in no way would I describe Bob Ellis as a crap trackman - far from it

Bob had produced a consistent and very good surface for many many seasons. It is only relatively recently it has been more problematic but I would say Bobs experience has actually saved it from being much worse rather than caused its demise

The last few weeks has seen a major decline. I would say however that may well be the result of significant damage done as a consequence of the original Glasgow meeting remedial work and subsequent call off

Whatever Bobs words last night and actions in his preparations I think it is grossly unfair to label him as useless

Good to see Richard a Glasgow asset scoring well against us, almost but not quite like Rory Schlein when he guested for us earlier in the season

Gavan wrong again. 

Scheiln has spent most of the season at 1 in a poor side , even I know that and I am not an Ipswich fan!

be shocked if he wasnt in the top 5 league averages . If he isnt a bigger hitter , then who is?

ipswich side needs a clear out. Out with covatti and Heeps.

Rory dropped back below Danny at the start of the month. Lawson guested for Danny last night. Thumbs up to Gavin:t:

That isnt the argument. Scheiln has averaged about 9 this season mainly from number one. That is classed as a big hitter.

Speaking to Mrs Paulco on the phone this morning , she was still buzzing . But despite her undoubted joy at last night's wonderful result for us , the one thing that came across from her was that she was blown away with how nice and welcoming the Ipswich supporters and staff were towards her and her pal , Dorothy 58 . 

They were probably the only two Tigers fans there last night , so a big thanks to you all for showing how great Suffolk hospitality is . 

I've had enough brilliant nights following the Tigers down to Foxhall to know what she said was true . As a club you might have missed out on the play offs , but as a welcoming support you have no peers.

Did i say Rory wasnt a big hitter..........jeez

I said we need another one alongside him to ride at 1 and 5.

Dont want Rory and then say two 7 point riders.

Strong top 2 and 2 strong reserves is the way forward
