If a referee has lots of re-starts fans complain he's trying to be the star of the show, no restarts & he has somewhere to be, sounds like refs can't win lol!

Would be a lot better if the rule was changed so it’s only a problem if you touch the tapes.

Its coming, we got away with it against Edinburgh two weeks ago and again tonight. Next up is Edinburgh again!

A point from either of Poole's no scoring riders would have made it happen. I expected Ben Cook to get a couple of points rather than zero.

A better team would have slaughtered us, we were there for the taking.

You beat me to it. Pirates are the best team in the league, so unless you want a Polish Extraleague team to take you on, the chances of being beaten at home this season are slim. Poole, Leicester and Glasgow could go through the card unbeaten this year. Plymouth will probably win the rest of their home meetings.

But to take 2 points away from Glasgow tonight is a hell of a feat.

Not sure why that would be the case? Riders race for different teams in different countries, so a change in riding order shouldn't affect them much!

The issue isn’t the riding order/combination. It’s the riders they’re paired opposite. 3, 4 and 5 were all one place higher than usual, as Sedgmen at 2 replaced Brennan at 5, so three riders essentially all went up a place, so it was tougher for them. But that’s what was available tonight, and that’s how it goes.

An outstanding speedway meeting on a smooth track. Fair does to Poole for an away team to ride the high line was exceptional. Suggest Glasgow riders should be practising behind closed doors how to do it otherwise trouble ahead. Young riders excelling .Older ones especially Ulrich possibly taking too much on

I can't say that should make a difference. Ostergaard has the 2nd highest average in the team so could easily be the number 5 rider, Basso can wins heats in the Prem so should be able to handle number 3 and number 4 was easier than number 2 with Ben Cook scoring 0.

I think Glasgow are very strong & should be good enough to beat any team (Poole included) at home.

They just needed to stops Poole's lower order from scoring so many (easier said than done) as Poole's top 3 are the best on the league.

Kemp missing severely weakens us but what will be will be. What happens now doesn’t mean anything in the scheme of things. The playoffs is all that matters.

The you will have to modify that comment after that result.

Ulle is just slow, his bikes see to have little in them. Noticed last week he got 000 for PB at home. Whatever it is needs sorting.

Please can we bin that long protracted interval after heat 10 , we fall in a heap after that most weeks 

Madness to regrade when your riders are doing well. It’s happening time and time again that the opposition are benefitting.

Yes of course we’ll done to Ruml. Did a sterling job. Ben Cooks away for is a worry though. Very poor tonight. Zac is the better of the two imo. 
 

But a great performance when no one gave us a chance tonight. And Havelock is making all the right calls as well!

You didn’t give your team a chance.Poole riders done most of the passing .Ruml was superb don't think Kemp would have matched his score or passing abilities.Glasgow will struggle when Basso and Brennan are away at u/21.Getting decent rider on their average will always be difficult.Brennan as reserve at u21 is pain for Glasgow.It is a joke that they have given the German girl a wild card for the 1st meeting.(if true).

Another good meeting tonight thought track was good.Ulle seems to struggling,but pulled out a big ride in Ht 13.

13th May weekend - Tom was reserve in the Team GB  European Team Championship final in Poland and Danyon and Connor were selected to represent GB in a 4's meeting in Germany. 

While Brennan was legitimate,he was the reserve and never a got a race.The GB meeting in Germany certainly wasn’t official it was a joke meeting for GB riders Congreve even got invited.

So would hundreds of others. But if it’s too much to answer a simple email it’s certainly too much to organise a simple stream.

Streaming is not simple if you don’t own the equipment and expensive and probably not worth the bother financially.They should have maybe answered your E mail if it went to the right source though.

Lawson made a pass, I couldn't believe my eyes lol

Why does Lawson need to make a pass when according to the Speedway Star he's no.1 in the Championship averages.

Award for the best gater then if he can't pass! :D

That's the Law - son!  :D :t:
