    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    The facilities are on the whole very good but, there is no real outside seating. There is however an excellent indoor restaurant with superb seating and viewing car parking is available at the stadium for a small charge but spaces are limited mist people park at the one stop shipping centre snout two minutes walk from the stadium and it is free

    The promotion have always said they were working to a five year plan and made it obvious that moving up the leagues was their intention but I agree that it might not have been this quickly. The watering down of the National League and the reluctance of many of our fans to attend other than Championship level, seems to have brought the planned elevation forward somewhat.

    Buxton v Brummies & Coventry Sun 16th Sep 3pm

    Can anyone local to the track, provide weather updates please as we are in Marsden and it’s absolutely tipping it down at this rate, can’t see it bring on and I’m certainly not forking out £50 admission money for a rain off as there’s no way we’d be able to get to any restaging , due to work commitments thanks

    Yes, I’m the Hobbit, aka Bilbo Baggins. I respect that you have come on here and publicly stated both your position and have made apologies. I certainly feel that you definitely owed Laurence Rogers a massive apology. As you know, I dish it out somewhat on the Brummies forum and as such, I expect people to fire back at me at times so, with that in mind, you don’t owe me an apology as I work on the principal of if you give it out you’ve got to be able to take it back we are all passionate fans but we must be aware that there’s a line you don’t cross, espescialy where dishing out personal or insulting comments are concerned and unfortunately, as you seem to have admitted, I think you crossed that line too much but it takes balls to publicly admit it!! I hope you keep posting on here as you obviously love speedway and, The Brummies so, do as you’ve said, control it better and keep on enjoying supporting the Brummies

    Pity you didn’t have the balls to put this post on the Brummies Forum where your rant occurred , rather than on here just deleting the offending post then hiding the apology away on here, is just copping out does the “b” in give us a b, stand for BRAIN?

    Kent v Brummies NL Mon 27th Aug

    We couldn’t win at home so why do you think we can win at their place? I hope we do but, I think the difference will be that the Kent reserves will heavily outscore ours so, Kent by 12 or more

    I O W v Brummies NL 28th June

    Not if you’d seen him tonight. His head has totally gone up im afraid with Layne and . Aaran at reserve, we have absolutely no score power and no options not even sure either rider will be able to complete heat two at either Easto or Cradley without falling off so, at most, we will get only one point from their eight rides, possibly no score at all !!! We are screwed now Leon is in the team as the reserves simply will not score sorry

    Nl Agm 14th December.

    this years green sheet NL Averages 2018 matches only National trophy and knock out cup do not count average earned after completeing FOUR national league matches, be they all home, all away or any combination the new average comes into effect 7 days after completion of the fourth N L match thereafter, all future NL matches up to 23rd of next calendar month go towards each subsequent new average which then takes effect from 1st iof each calendar month unattached 3 point riders can no longer go through the season guesting here there and everywhere without getter by an average. They now get an average after competing in 4 NL matches, no matter who they ride for during those four matches clear as mud!!!

    Presumably because England are playing a World Cup match the same day as the World cup fixtures have been known for a considerable time, yet more evidence of the ineptitude of the people running our sport. They only realise at the last minute there may be a orobkemband once again, cancel at the last minute without any concern for the fans who have already made travel and accommodation arrangements

    Brummies v Eagles Wed 7th June NL

    I think there will be a reserve switch fairly soon but despite Embleton being a good shout, I don’t think it will be him. I’m expecting it to be one of the lads who shone at our press and practice but it wasn’t available until the end of June

    JPB is out with a shoulde injury which has left him with no feeling in his arm and, hand

    Surely it’s now time for the officials to call time on this dreadful Stoke promotion and eject them from the League. That might allow Buxton to sign some riders and keep them going. At least the Buxton promotion want to run a team and want to fulfil their fixtures. Unlike this shambles at a stoke year in, year out .
