    Speedway On 'The Chase'

    Missed that. Just checked TV book and it's on every weekday so will have to record it next week. Thanks for the reminder as it looks interesting and I like Bradley Walsh.

    Speedway On 'The Chase'

    Can't stand Pointless. I hate repetition and Alexander Armstrong reads out the long options twice. Why? Just why?! I would probably be interested in Tenable but the blinking clanging noise annoys me too much. I guess I have a low irritability threshold. I am enjoying Richard Osman's House of Games at the moment and will watch Eggheads when it comes back.

    Leicester Lions 2020

    For those who don't have Facebook................................SCOTT ENDS LIONS SPELLScott Nicholls will be racing for a new team in 2020 after telling Leicester Lions he couldn't commit to another season.Nicholls had has just captained the East Midlands side to their first league title admits it has been a pleasure to be part of a great club but his TV commitments mean he couldn't race for the Lions being a Saturday night track in the Championship.He added: “Naturally it was a tough call to tell Leicester I wouldn’t be back there next season especially after the season we have just had. It will go down as one of my best achievements in the sport to lead the side to their first league title. “The win was as much for the fans and all the people behind the scenes as it was for the riders. It’s a special club and one that will live long in the memory for me personally. Everyone was welcoming on race nights and the support we got as riders on the terraces really was something else. The Lions fans turned up in numbers at every meeting and it certainly spurred the riders on. “I want to wish everyone the best for 2020 and hopefully they go on and have another good season. My work on the Grand Prix with the BT Sport team is something I want to continue and hopefully be available for every round in 2020. I see it as an important part of my future and if it wasn’t for this I’m sure I would have still been at Leicester next season.

    Leicester Lions 2020

    No rumours on potential signings yet but this is how you should treat your sponsors. http://www.leicesterspeedway.com/_mobile/news.php?extend.31567.1‬&fbclid=IwAR0Id9tOlE40LD37y1W4EqXuZFnYd1qvsaCYnoDovwigISfCmZJcdPO7Ebw

    Where has my thread gone?

    Re-apply and see if you get back in quicker than Gustix.

    Where has my thread gone?

    I should think that the thread has been taken off because of the forum guidelines and admin or a mod has finally spotted it. "Linking to Other Sites.......Please do not use the forum to advertise competing message boards or websites. There is a facility to put a link to a website on your profile." Doesn't really matter now though because loads of people have joined and will just pass on the details. Good groups always prosper, although it's a shame it wasn't formed at the beginning of the season rather than towards the end when everything goes a bit quiet.

    Speedway On 'The Chase'

    No wonder a lot of people don't bother posting on here anymore when you just get ridiculed. Perhaps best not to bother replying at all if you're not interested, especially when sentences don't make sense anyway. What's the other yeast? Are we talking about bread now?

    Speedway's future IMO

    Those were the days at Coventry. Regarding Mick Horton not taking up the lease, although Coventry had pretty good crowds I very much doubt if it would be viable to rent the stadium for any length of time just for Speedway, without propping up from Stock Cars like Sandhu had. How things are now Mick probably got out at the right time.

    Speedway On 'The Chase'

    Had a quick look on catch up of last weeks episodes and thought I had cracked it when there was a Jacqui listed on one show. Wizzed through but not the right person so I think Tigerblade is right and they are repeated shows on Challenge or similar that mum was watching.

    Speedway's future IMO

    As far as I am aware Martin and Linda were actually the owners, but hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong. The stadium needed so much money spending on it and Martin was unfortunately never as keen on Speedway like his dad was.

    Speedway On 'The Chase'

    I suppose that means I am going to be searching through all The Chase programmes on catch up last week now.

    Speedway's future IMO

    Probably thinks the closure of Coventry was all Mick Horton's fault. He usually gets the blame for everything and it was nothing at all to do with the Ochiltrees who sold the stadium to a known property developer.

    Split Waterman

    Gee thanks. If I read every section I would be on here all day and I only tend to look at the League ones and General Discussions. No need to be so rude as it wasn't a derogatory comment but just backing up that it's easy to not see certain posts.
  14. I agree that is very poor but the 2 Lions groups on Facebook have been brilliant with their praise. Not much use if you aren't on Facebook though I suppose.
  15. Gemini

    Split Waterman

    Agree Ray. I never go in the Years Gone By section.
  16. Yes let's have no repeat of the 2010 Poole v Coventry after match actions should the Lions end up being champions, but I'm sure the Glasgow promotion wouldn't stoop that low anyway. (There you go a mention of Poole on a thread not concerning them.)
  17. Me too. I think Glasgow, with their fans behind them, will win by 14 or 16 points. I hope I am wrong as well.

    Poole 2020

    No difference at all and I think having retained (hopefully) a good sense of humour helps. If only my body was in the same condition as my mind it would be great.

    Poole 2020

    Obviously taking over from SCB who was always going on about old people. I'd rather be old than have a mind like his.

    Poole 2020

    Sorry you had this awful experience and if you are happy to have the Flu jab then that's your choice and I would probably change my mind if I had the same happen to me. I am definitely elderly but not weak ~ probably due to the fact I am out every day in the fresh air so don't really come into contact with anyones germs like if I worked in a hospital, school etc. Obviously doctors are going to push people to have the jab as they are being paid by the government but the text reminders I have on my phone are just deleted. Fingers crossed now that I get through another Winter.
  21. Gemini

    Poole 2020

    Perhaps let us know it's worth having after you have had a Flu/cold free Winter? The Flu jab is not something I have ever had and I don't intend to as I have never had the Flu and can't remember the last time I had a cold. Just hope I am not tempting fate now.

    Poole 2020

    Long time fans Rabbit and her husband stopped going. Admittedly only two but there were probably others who were affected by riding Thursday's instead of Wednesday's.

    Good Year / Bad Year

    Yes he has because he's usually an out of control idiot. This is my 71st season and I am no longer up to waiting around for ages to watch racing. Leicester v Redcar on June 29th was the only match I have ever left after seeing only 2 heats and it was due to Bates causing Broc Nicol to have a broken collar bone and concussion because of an utterly reckless move on the 4th bend of the first lap. Due to medical cover there was a long wait for racing to resume but I left after an hour. The match eventually continued but only as far as heat 12 before it was abandoned. I gave the next few meetings a miss because I was so cheesed off but then went to the Glasgow one on August 17th. This was a double header with the Cubs riding against Cradley afterwards but again it was abandoned because of medical cover following a crash in heat 3. I haven't been back since but I'm glad the Lions are doing so well and hope they are champions. I never thought it would happen but my enthusiasm has been going downhill since Coventry finished as they were my team for 30 years.
  24. Gemini

    Good Year / Bad Year

    Yes. No. No. Josh Bates ended my enthusiasm and I've only been to one match since.
  25. I'm sure he had at least one good season with Coventry and that included the time he put them first rather than attend the reception in Poland? Admittedly though he seemed to lack commitment sometimes and was probably not a rider you would want in the team the following year.
