    WITH respect, Phil , you are playing both poacher and gamekeeper.... Maybe the FIM did jump the gun, through Armando Castagna....The thing is, the "Speedway Star", of which you are managing editor, published that story / interview with Armando ! You cant have it both ways ! You are course absolutely 100% correct when you state "SOIMETHING I learned in my profession decades ago is that if someone tells you something in confidence you do not betray that. If you do, a second chance is rarely forthcoming." SO....Dont say anything ! Dont tease, dripfeed, or anything like that, just stay quiet until the full facts are in the public domain ! Now, i realise that may not suit the journalist within you, but, as I said, you cant have it both ways !

    Jon Cook normally has a hand in fixture compilation.....Swindon might get a well balanced fixture list for a change

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the Gobey Boys may play "Hammer Time" and "Rocking Robin" quite a bit next season....

    IF it was Clegg, he would be the fourth rider doubling up between Swindon and Lakeside next season....

    LOL Mystic Meg you aint ! More like Septic Seb !!
  6. R.I.P Nigel 'NODDY' Fordham

    Awful News ! Our paths always used to cross in either Prague or Pardubice, more often than not both, around the time of the Czech Golden Helmet each year RIP Noddy
  7. Lakeside 2018

    Cracking team ! Would also hope that, riding at the Arena Essex raceway every week, Morris, Ellis and Waj will be pretty decent at Wolverhampton when Swindon are at Monmore Green.

    I think you may be getting confused with Poole Cycle Speedway

    So, it was all bovine excretia about Poole signing Adam Ellis as an asset then..... http://www.swindonrobins.co/news.php?extend.3023

    Ah, thats the best case of mistaken identity ever, thanks Ghostwalker !
  11. Just found out on Facebook from Stephen Zetterwall that Czech rider Richard Wolff passed away earlier today. He had been ill since August. RIP Richard

  13. 2018 Warsaw Gp

    Agreed - What a ballache ! Took me about 45 minutes, all because I changed my phone number on the "DotPay" page from "79xxxxxxxx" to "+4479xxxxxxxx" When I left it as is, I could then actually pay for my ticket ! The "TicketPortal" website is so much easier - As "TicketPortal" operates in Czecho, Slovakia, Hungary AND Poland, its a shame they are not the ticket provider for the Speedway GP's in Poland

    Wouldnt be keen on Jonasson - Had a spell at Swindon before, on loan from Edinburgh, and was like the "Scarlet Pimpernel", allegedly realising he had forgotten his passport when arriving at foreign airports for a flight to the UK. As for his riding, he is what I would describe as consistently inconsistent.
  15. Are you stirring the pot, or just not very bright ?! Woffinden couldnt ride for Wolves tonight, as he didnt sign a contract for ride for Wolves this season, oh and also because the transfer deadline, that allows teams to change their declared 1 - 7 has long since passed ! If there wasnt a transfer deadline, teams could rent a rider for the play off semis and final ! Still, never mind, when you have watched speedway for longer than five minutes, you will understand it !
