  1. Past hour
  2. Newcastle 2018

    I read it as 3 maybe 4 days, should be able to release good news,,, maybe there isn't any
  3. Very sad to see yesterday that the demolition of Wimbledon stadium has started. I have spent so many happy days there supporting the Dons. An important venue in the history of speedway is being lost and I doubt we will see a new stadium for speedway in London. A sad day
  4. For or against team suits

    You still don't get it though - regardless of sponsors helping to fund Doyle, extra track work or results on track, there is still additional revenue that is now being missed out on.... so yes, you WOULD recoup it and more!
  5. For or against team suits

    10 suits a year is about 7k £. Someone said Swindon had 7 team sponsors. Thats 1k a logo. Is it that cheap to advertise on British tv? I helped a friend with his suit for a Swedish club. Copypasted logos on it before it went to print. Top half of the suit was off limits as it was sold by the team. Not doing team suits for a British Premiership club is just stupid and lazy. Someone already said that not only was it possible for the suits to pay for themselves, they could have paid for a commercial manager as well...

    Although It is morally reprehensible to try and do this it's nothing new , last time it was a Dutch Kid , Pascal Swart
  7. Bt Sport Coverage

    Sound will be on mute for that one then!
  8. Does Rugby Borough Council have a local plan and more importantly are they delivering on it? That is effectively what the planning decision will hinge on.

    Video of Troy Batchelor having a practice round Blunsdon https://sportowefakty.wp.pl/zuzel/743720/troy-batchelor-z-kamera-i-predkosciomierzem-szalona-szybkosc-na-motorze-bez-hamu

    And I bet if he was trying to get into YOUR team, you wouldn't be squealing about 'fiddling'. Borczuch has been living in this country for years, so if he has a British passport he is just as eligible for the NL as Mitch Davey, Adam Ellis, Jack Smith and the like.
  11. For or against team suits

    No just a mistake just as anyone can make but i'll own up if i'm wrong. Was watching matches on YouTube from 2017 and never realised until I just re looked and saw 2015. I've said before i'll own up if i'm wrong. I made a mistake but point still stands tbf it doesn't matter what the team wears if things go right on track. Sponsorship can only take you so far and I believe we are already getting sponsorship deals to help us with the Doyle deal. So added onto expenses for the track, meeting expenses etc we probably wouldn't recoup for race suits in all fairness. Swindon have always been good in terms of the marketing side of speedway tbf. I totally agree Poole have definitely done a Leeds with the badge but even that isn't as bad as KL attempt at a club anthem.
  12. Newcastle 2018

    Maybe being the appropriate word in that sentence.
  13. For or against team suits

    Thats a good laugh every year!
  14. Newcastle 2018

    Buy some woolly hats from the club shop online and wrap up warm over the coming days thus helping the diamonds cause
  15. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Get Chapman wearing that whilst singing the song and the crowds will surely come
  16. The decision will not be made on the number of objections v the number of people in favour. It will be made on planning grounds. Rugby council will need robust reasons to refuse permission because you can bet the applicant will appeal. If the council loses the appeal, it then gets lumbered with costs which can be quite eye-watering.
  17. Agree about Worrall, will be good for his development to get him away from number two.
  18. Charity Shield 1st Leg 19/03/18 - Belle Vue v Swindon

    I fancy a ten point or more home win for the Aces, the sides look closely matched but the Aces have a big advantage at reserve.For Swindon i believe Zach and Adam can improve and i actually think Nick can add more consistency to his performances.For the home side Fricke /Bewley/Tungate can all improve and i believe Etheridge will chip in as well with points i hope it is a entertaining meeting i can't wait for the return match on Thursday.
  19. Birmingham 2018

    From my understanding of the lad that's how I see it too. If he gets his passport then no problems. If he is British enough for the British government, then I can't see how a group of motorsport promoters can claim any different. Whilst not legally binding the bspa could get him to sign a document indicating his intention to represent GB.
  20. Belle Vue Colts 2018

    Kean is one of those riders that uses no throttle on the straight and pins it when he gets into the bend. So perhaps the wide spaces of Bell Vue may do wonders for his confidence.

  22. Birmingham 2018

    Since there is a chronic shortage of capable riders in UK ( and in fact World-wide), we should not try to stop ANY rider who has a legitimate British Passport from riding in the "Training area" of the National League. If he has lived in this country for many years, and has no intention of returning to Poland, we should regard him as British. That is the law of the land. I do not see a problem. Good Luck to Birmingham if they sign him.
  23. Newcastle 2018

    As Aceslider says, the visa office operate at their own pace. However, this would imply that the rider in question is from outside the EU, presumably either an Australian or American, cue everyone to give lists of possible riders. It's now eight days and counting to P & P. Don't panic Mr. Mainwaring!
  24. Ipswich 2018

    Lol Steve Brandon tweeted along the lines of, bibs are worn by netball teams, over club strip. Certainly on Facebook and Twitter the racesuits are favourite, and Poole are getting some stick for being unprofessional by managers etc.
  25. Poole 2018

    Shanes - not captain? .... Do you think so ?
  26. Kings Lynn 2018..

    40 years too late I’m afraid!
  27. Poole 2018

    Hardly by 'default' if you follow MF's reasoning in the Echo. Josh is the obvious choice.
