    I see Matt is advertising on the club website for a "qualified plumbing & heating engineer" to do some work at his French Chateau project . I do hope that whoever takes on the job understands that there will be a requirement to include an instantaneous "kill switch" for the hot water supply to each bathroom in case of any unexpected emergencies.

    Fingers crossed , it's good to see the council standing up to the property developers dodgy tactics.

    Speedway's future IMO

    Well if that isn't the case ,then will you tell us all why Mick Horton didn't complete the deal to take over the stadium lease after he stated on more than one occasion that he had an agreement to do so?

    TV new deal?

    Srubokret ?

    I think the comparison is unfair. Dan Bewley has improved his skills riding on the speedway tracks around Europe , whilst Darcy Ward "honed his" by riding around Aussie streets dodging the local police.

    I think it's fair to say that many fans wouldn't have chosen this route but out of loyalty will support the move . Doesn't mean they want it.

    I don't think it's quite that clear cut . The survey asked would the fans support the team in the championship, not do they want to drop a division.

    Both have their fair share of "pricks".

    Tommy Knudsen

    I bet the riders felt like "rearing up" over that decision.

    Wayne Garratt RIP

    Got to know Wayne through some mutual friends who were Cradley fans. Socialised with him on a few occasions and always found him a very cheerful friendly guy. He was very popular in the area being a local lad, something that was evident by the size of the turnout at his funeral . Still think about him regularly despite the passing of the years.

    Agree 100%. When you are a fan watching your team take a beating the last thing required is "couldn't care less attitude" from team members. I recall a tv meeting from Swindon against the Bees in their last season in the top league. Coventry were being well beaten, and when the camera zoomed in on the pita area two bees riders and the team manager were fooling around in front of the camera. Not a good feeling watching that , then again it is something that would never have happened during the time bees were run by a disciplined management team.
  14. Ha Ha , speedway promotion - never my choice of career. However I have been around the sport long enough to recognise a good promoter when I see one.
  15. Yes, but as a former promoter you must realise that you will be judged on the quality & wording of your statements. Blowing ones own trumpet isn't a recipe for success IMO. Having said that your promotion of Coventry Speedway wasn't much of a success so "par for the course" I suppose.
