So will Poole still run Friday or hold off until the first leg is run?

pretty sure they will hold off and hold it maybe wednesday or thursday next week hope they give glasgow fans plenty time to cancel hotels travel ect

Thought 31st October was last day speedway can be run in this country or are the rules being manipulated again.

I don't think they will cancel Friday yet, if they do I'm sure they will announce it tonight at the meeting. However the forecast currently is for heavy rain in the morning, so depends how heavy and how long it sticks around?

It is not the last day speedway can be run in this country.

Not for the first time, and certainly not the last, UK speedway demonstrating how inept they are at running the most prestigious meetings of the season in early winter.

How they all must rue the COC's earlier in the season in much better conditions, which have led to the farcical fixture congestion we have seen in the past few weeks.

( COC's are cancellations of convenience )

Plenty of instances of league and cup deciding meetings being held in November, although less common in recent times.  Was a regular occurrence in the 1980s, when they were around double the amount of meetings to fit in as they are now, and quite often teams could not fit in everything by the end of October.

wouldn't it be ironic if it pissed down next Wednesday at Poole and the BSPL declared the result after only one leg ! Poole should run their leg whenever they have a dry day and have a number of Glasgow supporters booked to travel. Suspect they will get nil away and neutrals support for their leg if they keep delaying at short notice in order to satisfy their desire to hold the "second leg"

Do you ever do anything but moan?   Feel sorry for the Kent fans, who bear the brunt of most of your negativity. 

Many sports have run at irregular times over the last 18 months. Just take a look at when the 2019-2020 football season was eventually completed.

I don't think the speedway season having to be extended by just a few days is going to be the end of the world.

In a sport with so few teams, and with fixed race nights (so no clashes for the riders needed to compete), it does take something pretty special to still not have the league completed by the start of November...
