    Ipswich v Leicester June 20th

    That heat 7 ride from Emil was fantastic . Took Masters right out to the fence allowing Rew to nip past on the inside to join him for a 5-1. Superb stuff.

    That caught my attention too Badge. So nothing imminent, but MAYBE they have an agreement with someone to come in from the start of July..

    All I can say is fair play to you Siggy, travelling with a poor forecast. Just wish our sport had more supporters like you!

    https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/forecast/gcpn7smv3#?nearestTo=OX4 (United Kingdom)&date=2024-06-13 This must be in serious doubt.

    I think the supporters of other clubs on here would be absolutely delighted if we jumped the gun and signed a 6 point replacement for Doyley We have to wait.

    Just posted something very similar, and I agree.

    They’re trying but it’s proving difficult. Just when they think they’re making progress and a deal looks done, something crops up and it collapses. So many stars need to align before a deal gets completed, especially for the top end fellas. Although it’s nice to finish top and I’m confident we would have but for the issues we’ve faced, but it isn’t vital. The cup final is in the bag, and the final isn’t until September, neither are the play offs. Personally I think it’s wise to muddle through with guests and rider replacement until a quality option further down the line becomes available, than to make a signing now that might not be as good just to get a full 1-7 out. The pots aren’t handed out until September.

    Looking at the stats between last season and this so far, over all meeting (League and Cup) 2023: 10.73 2024: 8.74 So you’re currently looking at a two point drop off from last year which is significant. It’s not as if he’s suddenly “downed tools” over here and going through the motions whilst flying elsewhere, because his average in Poland has dropped off a cliff this year also so he’s definitely having issues by his high standards. It’s ironic that last year our strength was the most potent top end in the league whilst our bottom end was the weak link, this year it’s flip flopped! Emil struggling and Doyle/King/Ellis out injured, but it’s been the big improvement from Rew and Thompson in particular that has carried us through meetings! If we had Doyle and a firing Emil then I agree it wouldn’t even be a contest. Edit: other than his spell on the sidelines, Ellis has also been a big factor. Comfortably riding above his average which to be honest, we all expected him to do. Clearly a far better rider than he showed last year for Sheffield.

    Rarely drops points at Foxhall, such a massive miss. Need that position sorted before the crucial fixtures.

    Solid scoring wins the day. Keeps things ticking along.

    He’s always been poor out of the start, terrible gater. When his bikes are firing it can still launch him in to contention around first and second bend though but that’s not the case this year.
