    And 36 next month, you wonder how many seasons Poole might get for their money.

    I seem to remember that it covered nutrition, fitness and mechanical knowledge too. James Shanes was definitely one of them, there were a (the?) group of lads who were on the course at Lynn every Wednesday evening but this was a few seasons ago and I can't recall any of the others.

    Perhaps not pointless for those older supporters who spend their silver pound at Wimborne Road and don't use the forum or social media?

    Took far too long to sort out in the first place, no doubt provided some home advantage which meant the holes and bumps stayed. I can remember the track being a mess in one of Lynn's first seasons back in the top flight (2011 or 12?) when we rode there on telly.
  5. Massive improvement on the old site.

    It's an odd one, you'd think he is exactly the type of rider that the NL is for. I don't follow that league too closely bit did t he ride for Kent last year? Why is he not back there, did he end up with an awkward average?
  8. One bevvy that we know about. Personally there are very few MP's I would trust as far as I could throw, my betting is the vast majority of them have broken rules over the last couple of years.

    Huckenbeck would be a very good signing on his average if he can be persuaded.

    Football 2021/22

    By who though, all of these call offs were ratified by the PL once clubs had asked. From a Norwich point of view there were a couple of games in December where in hindsight Dean Smith has admitted we should have pushed harder for postponements rather than got on with fulfilling them, we were almost too honest whereas clubs since have more than likely not been. One suspects an 'injury' can conveniently pop up to take a club under the 13+1 threshold, and in Burnley's case lots of fixtures will be rearranged when key players are back from injury and a replacement is signed for Chris Wood. All a bit of a mess really.

    IIRC in the 2010 season every team had a number 8 they could declare at any time for a meeting in place of any rider. Coventry's was Aaron Summers and I suspect they used this RULE to make sure Pawlicki didn't ride enough meetings to move up before the Play Offs. A masterstroke to be fair, but a rule not thought out properly at the same time (who knew?!)

    I'm sure that's what people like about you on here, the pleasant way you come across I've got a suggestion to increase income, get rid of the out of date programme which is overpriced and in many cases poor and provide something on a digital platform and/or a phone app which is much more accessible and get with the times. Done properly and everyone could be a winner.

    Belle Vue 2022

    So this thread contains posts saying that Belle Vue run a tight ship but also that they lose a fortune each season. Can't be both so which is it?

    That's the difference between the haves and have nots in some cases unfortunately. Of course there are other riders out there who Brum could sign as genuine number ones but whether they would come or could be afforded is another matter. I've never been keen on really top heavy teams personally (including my own) and wouldn't be against some kind of control to make sure everybody got one but how that would be governed or regulated I have no idea. Alternatively you build your team like P'boro dud and waltz to the title
