In the speedway star today bomber blames the track for his lack of points.  Sometimes it’s grippy and sometimes it’s slick and it’s not his fault he can’t find a set up. 

With 20 years plus experience on all tracks it’s a pretty poor excuse.  The fact is bomber isn’t a number one anymore and hasn’t been for a few seasons 

Its never been Bombers fault he can't find a setup! That whole side of the sport is what has held him back from being a much more successful rider. Yes his gating is iffy but not that terrible, what keeps him an an inconsistent enigma is that he doesn't know how to set a bike up and just lucks in some days but the worst part is that its always somebody else's fault.

It can’t help but it’s the same for all Ipswich riders and others have coped.

Sounds like this attitude has only been exacerbated by his wife going from social media postings. She seems even more sensitive to criticism of Bomber than he is!

Well another £50 saved by not going. This is so sad because I looked forward to this and Lynn meeting at the beginning of the season especially as we had no home fixtures in August. I cannot justify going with the team we are putting out. Hope the Panthers still do well though.

Poole were here a few weeks ago with a side no one thought had any chance getting even slightly close, and they won.   You never know.

Sometimes the meetings you think are gonna be poor are the best, you never know with speedway and with our recent form you just can't tell...Nicholls and Tungate normally ride pretty good

I know,, they have been doing a reasonable job of that on their own, don't need busters help. All will be good after tonight though and another 3 points on the board.

Maybe the Witches could move their home meetings to Monmore then he would be at home in the league and British final:D
