It’s not me that is running British speedway down, it’s the track (s)

Stop making excuses

Stop making excuses, down to tracks. Let me try and make this simple EVEN for you, even from the late 20's speedway tracks by mast majority are built inside greyhound tracks. So explain to me how they could overcome the shape and size of track? Apart from Belle Vue, Scunthorpe, Somerset and going against the grain, Wolverhampton on a well prepared track all mentioned can produce excellent racing. Name me how many tracks in Poland have greyhounds! I hope this has made it a little simpler for you to grasp!

Well done Ipswich. Sounds like you completely deserved it. Good luck in the final. Also well done to Josh, Nic and Covatti for trying to keep our ship afloat!!

As usual our number one and five were crap and I hope they are not back next season. I think we cheated with Holder injury and in many ways glad we lost for that reason and also because we will have no chance against Wolves or Swindon. Resume all season is over now?

You lost because you wasn't good enough. Conditions were same for both teams over both meetings. Efs happen. 

Agree . Funny how efs are never mentioned when its the opposition that has one .

End of day lost it on a covatti ef and losing a shoe and the five min shower on Thursday. Thats how close it was.  Some you win some you lose.  

5 minutes? I didn’t think you lot liked showers down at the Four Point Arena? :P

I was wondering if I could ask a favour of you Steve, it’s a special birthday for me next year and I am planning to go to Rome, as I know you will be going shortly, can you give me a few restaurants that are good quality but reasonably priced.

I’ll be very grateful. 

Evviva.

Don't blame it on the little bit of bad luck you had.Blame it on your supposedly two top Aussie boys.

Another honest comment. It was so obvious what Poole were up to (Holder could have at least pretended to look injured ).

Think certain Poole fans can be very blinkered sometimes if not all the time.

We know only to well the restrictions of a track inside a dog track, some of us haven't forgotten the Kirky Lane years

Well done and congrats to the Ippo boys. You deserved it on the night. Wolves or Swindon will struggle on that track if prepared the same. Only one more home meeting  left for the season ticket holders, sponsors and true fans.

The upside to this poor performance from the young Aussie wimps is that we can watch the rest of the season from the comfort of our arm chairs drinking chilled G&T’s. Good luck to Swindon..
