Premiership • Wolverhampton v Swindon • 15/04

Recommended Posts

Shocking shocking management from Peter Adams.

Wolves win toss and take 1 and 3. Howarth breaks tapes. He puts him in of 15! He is never going to pass Doyle or Ellis in Heat 1, they both go well at Wolves.

Put Morris in, he can gate and might get amongst them.. plus gets some track time in before Heat 2.

Is the rule also Howarth would start from 4 and the others move over? Not sure if they changed it a year or two back... if that is still the rule even more ludicrous decision.

Lampart costing Swindon more than 1 point this evening.

Anymore performances like that and he will be a goner sooner rather than later. 

Realistically, who was he expected to beat given the form Becker showed tonight?

Doyle, Batchelor, Musielak, Ellis & Lampart will comfortably outscore Masters, Schlein, Nicholls, Howarth & A.Morris 

Not comfortably outscore at all. Wrong as per usual.

Close call either way, wouldn't be a shock if Robins won.Wolves 46-44.

Good call!

No surprise at the result, Robins one of the strongest sides on paper this year. Good to see Becker being a match winner so early in his career. A win is a win.

You have changed your tune again, you said he would contribute more. More nonsense predictions of course.

Think that rule was changed last season as riders went back 15 metres from original gate last season.

Congrats to Swindon on securing a point. wasn't expecting that tbh.

Early indications seem to point to the fact that we've got a diamond from across the pond:t:

He gated twice in front of the Wolves riders but couldn’t stay there. At least his gating wasn’t a disaster.

Maybe putting him at 2 would have been better so we were less vulnerable in heat 14, but when the reserves are so poor too it’s difficult to get any heat advantages other than in 13 and 15.

That's what I thought.

Doesn't change what an awful decision it was. It gives them the inside gate whichever way you look at it.

Fortunately didn't cost us, mainly due to Becker.

Decent result though as well under strength without Nick Morris. Once he is back Wolves will be very tough to crack at Monmore.

Missed opportunity for Swindon.

Plus, Doyle was very poor compared to in Poland yesterday. Not a single race win tonight.

Tbf, that's quite common. Some Poles take to the track quickly.. others really struggle.

In the past Lampart hasn’t looked like taking to any track apart from Blunsdon. He struggled everywhere previously.

A bizarre signing by Rosco.

Aaron Summers would have been better.

Give the guy a chance, Wolves for the first meeting of the season is never easy to go too regardless of who you are. Many better riders struggle there. Watched Lampart in his first two polish extraliga matches & he’s been on the pace. Sounds like he was tonight other than being squeezed out in he bends, by all accounts Tobi may have been at fault for one of those. If after a dozen or so matches he still isn’t doing well then perhaps the conversation can be had, until then I think it’s too early to criticise.

One thing which can be said is that had we not had 3 riders score only 3 point score between them then we would have been in with a shout. Onto Thursday now which I for one can’t wait for.
