  1. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    Sums the sport up nicely.
  2. Berwickbandits2018

    Hope it doesn't turn out to be a disaster movie!!
  3. Berwickbandits2018

    Remember and ask about Mr Havelock as you seem keen to know about him!!!
  4. No job

    Basically that is how the Original NL was formed out of the original 2nd division by becoming a higher quality,but the trouble nowadays there is not the fan base for 3 divisions of speedway.We now have 3 average leagues.
  5. No job

    Trouble is that NL is no longer a development League and you get all the mediocre PL league riders hanging around and topping up their earnings and probably being the best paid for doing so Max Clegg & Mitchell Davey as examples (nothing against these guys as they are not breaking any rules).Speedway needs a rethink.
  6. Starting rules

    Think the new rule is when James Sargeant goes follow him!!!!
  7. Sheffield 2018

    Lack of a weekly meeting is a bigger problem than most Promoters would admit too.Its a catch 22 IMO.Looking at the fixture lists ,lack of meetings in high season( June and July) will affect attendances at most tracks.ONE league would have been a better solution IMO.
  8. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    keep waiting for it to "happen" for him but seems to be injury prone,he is exciting though and hope he comes good.
  9. How will Martin Vaculik fare in the U.K.?

    Depends on his commitment to GB.Should have little trouble from standard of majority of riders,variety of tracks might be his problem with set ups etc .
  10. Newcastle 2018

    Think he is riding in Poland.
  11. The Royal Highland Show is held there.I might be wrong but I think their Society may own part of the land,there have various events held there, Concerts and Raves.There used to be a big Sunday Market but think that stopped afew years ago.It was Motor racing circuit inside the Show ground in the 60's.There have been afew attempts to make it a sports venue over the years but has come too nothing.
  12. Yip.Dont think they want it as Sporting facilities, houses or Airport Extension seems more likely.
  13. Think that fell through.
  14. Armadale is approx 30 miles from Edinburgh though!!!!!!
  15. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    "Top Flight" that's a laugh.
  16. Leicester Lions 2018

    He did seem a bit miffed.Cant really believe his play off comments though.
  17. Nichols/kennett Rule

    agree,but that would have been too sensible for them.!
  18. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    Can't see Nichols or Kennett being big scorers in PL this season!!
  19. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    Will they be able to guest ?
  20. Edinburgh 2018

    The BSPA have now issued Statement regarding this matter.
  21. Edinburgh 2018

    The BSPA create all their own problems,just set a rule and stick to it ,don't have discretionary exceptions it just opens a can of worms as I have stated before.Virtually all remain fans want an Independant body to run certain parts of the sports. BSPA should issue a statement but that would also come if for critism IMO .
  22. Swindon Stadium

    What season though !!
  23. Edinburgh 2018

    Would have been a great signing.If the rules are top 3 what is the point of appealing though it just opens the usual can of worms in the BSPA cupboard.The sport is a sad joke these days.Becker is a talent though IMO .
  24. Edinburgh 2018

    agree,there is certainly no chance the Edinburgh Council will be the least bit interested in Edinburgh Monarchs.All they are interest is making money off selling land.
  25. Edinburgh 2018

    The Promotions see them as a money spinner, as there will always be a reasonable turn out compared to some other fixtures.
