Well what a load of rubbish that was. I was a complete neutral here, and didn’t care who won. But it was dire. Yes the rain caused mayhem and made the trickiest track even trickier than usual. But Wolves had the drive and enthusiasm of their manager Peter Adams, who’s passion was clearly absent. Clearly he has had his day. 
 

Well done Swindon. All very easy. Wolves had no fight whatsoever, other than young Becker and Schlein. 

If course you had no interest, you were already eliminated. If it's not Poole it's  not speedway.

The expected result the minute the cameras showed the track drenched.F Fairplay to Swindon who did what any away side would do.

Advantage Robins tho right now. 

Rory and Luke at least gave 110%, 2 out of 7 not good enough. 

Because Wolves riders can't set their bikes up for wet conditions?

Thorsell displayed his 2019 playoff form. Longitudinal & latitudinal lines were expectedly irrelevant to any sensible speedway observer.

Steve... Did I or did I not having watched the Eliteserin playoffs predict that Thorsell would perform equally as disappointingly for Wolves as he did for Dackarna? Which even you have to agree he did..

So, all season long we're told to wait for the play-offs, it's all about qualifying for the play-offs, get your fixtures finished in time fpr the play-offs, risk your track's season finishing ridiculously early if you don't qualify for the play-offs, the play-offs are all, they're wonderful - and they're coming soon! Only two weeks to the play-offs. You change the team round, find new riders, and.....qualify for the PLAY-OFFS!

 

Then you get tonight.

And they expect you to pay nearly £20.......

To be honest that meeting should not of been on and hand on heart Wolves were very unlucky.The track conditions made it a real leveller for us,and despite the riders putting on a great show it was a poor spectacle game over now but Wolves will keep battling tonight.

Interesting that everyone has put him in their 2020 teams, not Vissing or Perks though :D

Wrong!  I said months ago that Perks would be the first name on my team sheet next season

I had them both in my 2020 team that I posted on here. Looks like someone hasn't been paying attention.

They got lucky with the conditions. Poole would have had 60+ had it not rained and played into the away sides hands.

Ipswich are zero threat to Swindon in the final. Two easy wins, just like tonight was for them.

 keep sucking on them lemons. You wasn't good enough full stop.

I think Perks is a certainty and i have really enjoyed watching him ride he will make more progress next year.Douglas on his average is a rider that interests me would love him to come to. But every club will be interested he is a rider who in time will cope with being in a top five.

Do you know what Sid, based on the last few meetings I would have Vissing back. Hes gotten to grips with the Abbey and has scored a few away as well. Rasser has of course been an absolute star since he came in but the difference Perks and Vissing have made has been just as important IMO.

Think it will be a major shock if wolves manage to turn this around but then again I thought Poole were safe going into the second leg so what do I know lol.not a lover of the play offs but if we ve got to have them get the league meeting s finished earlier so we have more chance of running play off s in better conditions. Hats off to all riders last night

That meeting would have never been run during the regular season.  Double standards, as always in Speedway. Joe Public tucked up once again.
