    Did Glasgow not do just exactly what EVERY other club would have done if they'd had the same budget to play with?

    It's not over yet, or it could be part of the masterplan were they rent the stadium out to the homeless Monarchs in 2020 they re-invent themselves as the lets say Scottish Monarchs , we in turn rebuild with the astronomical rent being charged and they in turn perform to massive crowds of 87 and 2 dogs. We return in 2022 with the coffers replenished ready for another 3 years of overspending and winning hee haw but it was good whilst it lasted.

    I think that you only have to see the type of riders that Glasgow have signed over the present Promotion's time as owners of the club to realise the the type of budget's been pumped into the club. Unfortunately the big spending demands big success and this has not really happened for the club, and I always fear for the Glasgow supporters that this day would come around sometime unless they got that success. Lets hope that a solution can be found and the club does not go out of business, maybe if budgets were reduced things could get better financial and keep the Promotion at the club.

    I think there was some fair comment at the start of the year and that less than perfect preparation showed in his performances He ended the season in much better shape and form Only Cam can decide if he wants to make the most of his undoubted talent - its in his own hands

    So your not gloating what made me think you were. Maybe because you were and now you say its beacause some Glasgow fans were doing likewise weeks ago . So what your saying is 2 wrongs do make a right ,your a hoot you. Oh and just for the record i do not condone what some fellow fans posted on the thread you refer to.

    Chicken and the egg thou surely ...Easy to run a league with credibility when you hold all the aces just like when we did back in the day .. ive not seen anyone come up with any answers to solve the problems we have here bar keep making the standard lower, a plan not worked for the last 20 years . The moment guests were try to be cut down on people wanted to go back to having more guests within a week ,it would be the same with one big league .

    Has anyone else noticed the number of comments being deleted from the Speedway GB Facebook page? Running scared me thinks and obviously can't handle the negative posts and sensible suggestions being made by the paying public.

    And you really have the cheek to say other fans gloat ? Look no further than your fellow fans , not so long back on threads on here they were all there revelling in the fact Workington might not be running next season , etc etc etc .... but hey your big guns didn’t come to the party, who the promotion had invested in heavily and you are where you are . Like every other team !

    Is it co-incidence that this statement came out on the opening day of the promoter's conference ?

    I on the other hand can imagine many people saying I am not going because of guest riders.... In fact I would suggest many, many thousand no longer go because they feel "what's the point"? Who cares who wins titles in Britain? None have any kudos the way they are delivered. The reason why there is no alternative to guests is because there is now a fundamental need for the teams to keep costs down by sharing riders, rather than sign cover for absences, and a need for riders to earn as much money as they can by taking as many rides as they can, regardless of what colours they ride in... If Poland ever went down the same operating model route as the BSPA uses, and ran leagues devoid of credibility then I can guarantee that they too would have a sport on its arse.... No big money from TV, no national media coverage, no big company sponsorships and no big attendances would be the ultimate result they would deliver.. Just like we have over here..

    If the Faceennas walk there will be a whole load of panty wetters on here foaming at the mouth preaching there bile. They cant help themselves jamlad being the latest , but his need to gloat at this statement is more important than the potential closure of his own club.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    I dont see any good reason to be gloating or laughing about the Glasgow situation Regardless of any financial budget reduction that is coming I think we should all hope that there isnt a similar reduction in interest in the sport generally The overall approach and attitude to club and community (IMO as a neutral outsider) has been a breath of fresh air I very much hope that continues and others decide to follow

    Karma for what i really cant get my head round that comment. Our promotion have done a lot wrong i agree but they also have done an awful lot right. But the attitude you show that you would rather gloat and wind fellow speedway fans up says a lot more about you. If i suspect you support Workington i would never consider gloating on a club that may not come to tapes next year but as i say it says more about you that you feel the need to gloat.

    What a load of short-sighted, jealous folk there are about calling themselves speedway fans and gloating because a team's owners comes out and makes a statement. Sure Glasgow spent on trying to put a winning team together but what a lot of folk so blinkered they can't see past their own team is that the Glasgow Promotion also invested heavily in the community around Ashfield. When they bought the stadium they also guaranteed the continuation of the areas junior (equivalent of English non-league) football team and the money spent on the work on the stadium was mostly done by local companies employing local people. Yeah if the Facenna's walk away because of losses it's more than speedway that loses out. Think about the greater picture rather than gloat!!!

    AGM November 2018

    I find it a bit strange that some are hoping for a running commentary from the AGM Until the end nothing is decided/confirmed and even then may require some tweaking in hindsight I do just hope though that all of that is in place before the season starts this time. It is the supplementairies that are most damaging IMO

    Have yo agree that the constantly changing team did no favours in my opinion...the team selection seemed to change every week and/or month.

    Seen a fair few of these comments regarding Heeps this year. All I can say is I wish I was as fat as this lad!

    Not really sure what ideas have been taken on board. I suppose he did try to modernise the presentation a bit, but it was typical speedway - done in a two-bob and tacky way. Unfortunately, I don't think the finances ended-up matching the ambition, and the random cancellations and ever changing team really did nothing to encourage fans to come - new or existing. He was really the beginning of the end at Oxford although it wouldn't be fair to put the blame at his door.

    The losses are covered, Glasgow are running in 2019, albeit cutting their cloth. Today's statement confirms that things wont continue as they were and its time for realism from riders and fans. The fantasy years are over, largely enjoyable as they were. Can cope with that.
