    Tried to PM you Paul but it won't let me. sadly a member of the family has confirmed its true RIP Marty

    Same here Paulco, trying to find out but looks as if it's true
  3. In fairness it is in Workingtons best interests to do so. They are as you point out the home track and as such don't want negative comments affecting their business/crowd especially if inaccurate. They gave Glasgow 24 hours to do so first from what I can see so don't see the problem
  4. You might have to change your name to Mystic Meg lol
  5. Glasgow 2018

    I'm sure he does though, I doubt if any rider wants to fail! Hope the crowds and everything improve for Worky this year
  6. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    Why do you think I chucked it? I'll be in therapy for years
  7. Once A Jolly Swagman

    I seriously was not taking the Michael, apologies if it came across that way. The channel is a godsend, especially but not exclusively for dementia patients. It encourages talking and memories not just about the particular film but where they went to see it, who they were with, going for chips on the way home, the row for being back after 10, trying to copy the style of the actors etc etc. I've lost count of the number of times a confused or distressed resident has been calmed down and become happy with a cup of tea and a chat with them explaining why 'X' was a far better actor than 'y' but 'z' was a heart throb.

    Geez your geography is worse than mine! Since when was the Isle of Lewis in the East???
  9. Glasgow 2018

    There ya go......and sadly I can even do the hand gestures
  10. Glasgow 2018

    A lot of it doesn't sound right to me but honestly it's fountain
  11. Once A Jolly Swagman

    Use it in the care home all the time, the oldies love it
  12. Glasgow 2018

    Err don't you mean fountain? Ms Pedant
  13. Last unread post

    If you click the black circle for the topic that you have unread posts in it goes to the first unread post (clicking the title just takes you to the first page)
  14. Don't like the new format

    Every time things change there's always negativity. I'm finding it clumsy just now but give it a few weeks then just like the last change we will be used to it and when the next change comes along we will be wanting this one back!
  15. Testing

    Just being trying...
  16. Can't agree. The riders sign contracts to the end of October. The fact fixtures are a shambles is irrelevant. Riders going home before the end of October whilst their clubs still have meetings to complete have to accept 100% of the blame.
  17. I've missed something. Why is it interesting in the pits? Genuine question
  18. Isn't Saturday Glasgows night? Shouldnt Edinburgh be running their dance on the Friday?
  19. He accused BWD of deliberately causing Jack Smiths fall and injury and continued to imply over the next few days that BWD did this to other riders. It was pretty pathetic stuff to be honest and at least BWD rose above it. An initial outburst I can forgive, it's a high adrenalin sport, things get said in the heat of the moment but it just made Worrall look silly and pathetic and attempting to be a bully the way he carried on imo
  20. After Worralls comments on BWD after Jack Smiths accident earlier this week I'd kinda like to see BWD beating him in every race
  21. Is that a relatively new rule Neil? (Last 5 years or so). I only ask as it was done a few years back when Redcar appealed a heat result in a meeting against Glasgow and the rede larded result after the appeal was farcical as they updated the Redcar rider in second, not the Glasgow rider in third and gave a point to a rider who DNF
  22. I was just a couple of miles away this afternoon, rain was very heavy and for about 20 minutes around half 3 it was like a monsoon so not a surprise that it was called off
  23. Lack of NHS/ambulance cover on a Saturday night in Glasgow is always going to be an issue due to resources, or lack of them
  24. Seems at odds to what was said elsewhere with others saying it was Cook doing the decking. Did anyone who was there see it?
  25. Woo hoo! Brilliant! I'll get my curling gear....
