Fee options to be honest, it's ride this season out & turn attention to 2022 although I think there needs to be a change of direction throughout British speedway next year.

As for Ipswich 22 for me Crump is a no go even if he wants to carry on. The one surprise this year is the form of Kemp I didn't think he would struggle as much as he has.

Drew has only struggled at home 

His away average is 2 points higher and more than respectable

Hindsight is a wonderful thing but as for 2022 who knows as the talk was 2 rising stars at Reserve next season 

Could Witches still run with Kemp and Rowe as the latter is on the rising star list?

Without knowing what is what the first thing they need to do is identify a number one and secure him ASAP

I agree with you regarding Kemp away form, i think he is better than Rowe riding away

We had the same with Conner Mountain a few years back,,, couldn't get used to the grippy track at Foxhall but was good away. Watching Drew at Foxhall though, he does seem to get beaten up on turn 1 at the starts. Maybe needs to be a bit tougher

I agree with you Baldy, I hate being critical of speedway riders as they’re all far braver than I’ll ever be! But he doesn’t seems to have that courage and ruthlessness and determination that you need to get to the very top. 
 

There’s so many times Where he looks to have the speed to get by someone if he kept the throttle open, but as a gap starts to diminish he seems to immediately shut off and loses his chance. I find it frustrating watching him to be honest.

Looking at the stats, Kemp is a NL rider at home & a 3rd heat leader away!

I agree about Crumpie, don't think he should have come back to be honest.

May be due to Glasgow possibly signing Lawson as the 2 do not get on, apparently.

I think it's common knowledge that I am not a big Cook fan to the extent that his signing was part of the reason I haven't attended the last few meetings

However on a human level I hope he finds the help he needs to feel good in himself and live a happy and fulfilling life

What a crass statement! I would remind you and everyone else that keeps suggesting that Glasgow will sign Richard, to have Craig and Richard in the team the club would have to rebuild to a 38 point limit when the current average is 41+ thus weakening the team!
