    Got to be honest there is a bit of a buzz about the place not seen for a good few years. Already signed the 2 riders from last year the supporters would have wanted, ideas to give extended entertainment throughout the meeting and a couple of possible shock signings incoming. Took over last week, but sure is making inroads immediately and imho has probably been sounding out the signings even before he took the plunge. Brought together an experienced team to help out also.

    Dave, in your opinion, do you think that the team has already been just about signed up and the new promotion are purposely drip feeding the riders to maximise excitement and publicity?

    Like the sound of this; seems to have some ideas and plans in his thinking. Some good assistance in the background also. Hopefully he will assemble a competitive team, but everyone (Newcastle fans) need to give him their full support as only a couple of weeks ago it was desperately looking bleak. Well done Rob and all the best for this season and the future.

    Could well be feasible and a ready made plan to cut costs straight away and the opportunity to look at other options. Don't know what the cost would be for terraces to be built or at least some seating area for elderly/disabled persons.

    Seems pretty significant although bearing in mind the Bin Zayed group set up a company for the sale of NUFC it's certainly not definitive. Sounds like something is happening (brilliant) as hinted by THJ the other day. Edit: looking at the date of birth looks like it maybe our former rider (possibly assisted by his dad!)

    Hopefully the new ownership comes through as it will be a travesty for the club to fold, which has been a big part of British speedway history along with the city of Newcastle's sporting history. Fingers crossed.
  12. Yeah read to me that if they're looking for new owners (maybe already sorted), but if not forthcoming then it maybe the end. Might be totally wrong with that just the way it reads to me; and someone may have the knowledge to put me right.
  13. Well it's been rewarded with a lot more trophies than Redcar/Boro that's for sure. Congratulations on your win by the way which was more than deserved.
  14. Been off this board for a few years due to ill health, which has fortunately improved. After being away for nearly 6 years I made the plunge and bought a season ticket for this season. Have to say I enjoyed last night and thought there was some decent racing. Thought the team looked ok and especially inpressed with Jorgensen and Bjerre, who once they get a regular run of meetings and dialed into the track will be fine additions to the team. The only rider who really seemed to struggle a bit was Lambert and I'm sure he will be fine also once he gets used to the right racing lines at Brough. A couple of incidents changed the result when we were on a 4 - 2 and Greaves fell and the re-run produced a 3 - 3, heat 12 with Bjerre unlucky to be excluded and then Wethers lifting in heat 14 when comfortably ahead. Thought Redcar certainly looked a decent side also yesterday and there was never any danger that the aggregate win would be theirs. I think both teams will do ok this year and be in the mix for things.
  15. Why is that because I thought last night's performance was shocking and then get berated for it because I don't attend anymore. That's my choice and it is also my right to have an opinion and again I say if you dont like it tough - don't comment or put me on ignore instead of trying to get clever and putting personal remarks.
