    Eastbourne v mildenhall 14/7/18 OFF

    the trouble with that is, they would then get slated for not running a match just because England 'might' do the unthinkable and get through to the third place playoff in the World Cup...yeh right!! It does seem a strange thing to do but why cant people simply understand that the club have done what they think is right for the club?

    Eastbourne v Kent 16th June

    Yeh, Georgie was great in those two races. It is always great to win and being a massive eagles fan, I want to win every lap of every heat.....but that was not top drawer speedway....except heats 13 and 15!! Local rivals they may be but I would not wish that on ANY travelling fan

    Brummies v Kent Ch Wed 25th April

    Attended this as a neutral and really enjoyed it, despite the temperature. I felt sorry for the Kent fans travelling all that way to have such a promising start but end up with quite a heavy defeat. There was some good racing and clearly a couple of racing lines. Leon Flint!! Good find. Cracking gater and has some real pace. One of those finds at reserve that can make for a good season for the team. Not sure Brum will be as strong looking when he cant have 7 rides though.

    Not a fan of either club (Eastbourne is my club) but I am in Wolverhampton on business tomorrow evening so may pop along for this. Bit of speedway or night on my own in a hotel room? no brainer really!

    Mmmm, I must admit, it is missing from this link but was mentioned elsewhere. Could be it was simply left out or an issue with promoting a new website on the old one? http://www.eastbourneeagles.co/news.php?extend.1174.1 As for you question about why the new website, I kind of agree, why not just rebrand the old one? I am guessing its easier to buid a new one so they can keep the old one running or maybe, they are using someone else to build the new site. Could also be that the old website does not lend itself to the rebranding I often aurgue the need for new website and things, including my own company, I was outvoted on changing and rebranding our company website and making it 'mobile friendly' but I do get the augument that if you dont keep with the times, you start to look dated. Personally, I just want to see the Eagles riding as a team at Arlo for as long as I am fit enough to attend. If the management deem certain cganges are worthy to keep things going, I will always support that. As much as I am a tranditionalist, I am nt a great fan of blue and yellow together as colours anyway.......ooops, did I say that out loud!

    Where do you look for Eastie news? It was in their website, they made a press release to the likes of the Sports Argus and on social media. Noit trying to pick an argument but I am not sure what else they could have done. BBC certainly would not do anything on it!

    They did make a big announcement across social media about the website and change of colours when it happened.

    Not sure I agree its liked by most supporters. Yes, going into play offs and the such, any team is glad to use a flying guest, wherever in the team he is but I think we would much rather a reserve that is going to do well for us full stop. I think most would have liked to see more of Charlie Saunders then see what guest we would be getting each week. I am a little surprised everyoine is assuming Charlie Powell will get a place as he looks a little at risk with his average, in my opinion. But the fact that he has not gone public saying he has not been signed, maybe means he is. Personally, I would like to see Georgie, Mark and Daniel Spiller complete the team

    Agree with Midly but dont see why Eastie cant have a good side as well.

    Blimey....on the condition they leave a 'quiet' part of the stadium for us 'over 40's!!! I can put of with a little Taylor Swift but club music is best err, left in clubs!!! Seriously, I do get where you are coming from though. I remember Terry Russel trying this once. Had some BIG speakers all round the stock car track but they lasted about two matches! I did hear it was due to complaints from locals but if I believed everything I heard. Martin Dugard would have had about 5 comebacks and we would be riding our meetings at the Amex due to houses being built at Arlington!
