  1. 2018 Celebration of Speedway

    I'm sure the helpless one day old baby of some species is happy with the sun on its back before being eaten alive by a Lion, Tiger, Leopard etc. etc. in the wild.
  2. Chris Harris didn't exactly win all his races last season so it's not that easy. I don't take any interest in statistics though so I don't know what his final average was.
  3. Coventry City Community Day

    I think he's on the waiting list to ride for Poole.
  4. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    Luckily I live in Leicester so still have a team to support, although it was the Bees from 1984 to 2016. I also supported the Cougars and The Storm so enjoy NL racing, but not made my mind up yet what I will be doing.
  5. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    Unfortunately you're wrong. I just wish I could work things out for myself but I am totally confused with all the conflicting comments and don't know which to believe.
  6. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    How can I judge if you are right or wrong if you don't explain what the holes in the statement are? At the moment I'm not sure what to believe so I need persuading.
  7. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    Can you list the holes then please so I can avoid falling into them? At my age I find it easier letting someone else explain instead of trying to understand things myself.
  8. Afraid not as it is a Greyhound Racing track, hence us never going.
  9. Once A Jolly Swagman

    Thanks Rob. I'll try that tomorrow as we have a Freeview TV upstairs. I'm sure you have misunderstood Lioness because she isn't into taking the mickey, just making an observation I think.
  10. Christian Hefenbrock

    Looks like he was still riding in Germany in 2016 but can't find anything for 2017. He last rode in the UK in 2011 for Somerset and Poole I think. Can he still be called a lad at nearly 33?
  11. Once A Jolly Swagman

    Unfortunately I can't get channel 445 without an upgrade to my subscription so I'll have to give it a miss.
  12. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    I don't see how it can be possible though without the Stock Cars as well and as the owners won't allow Sandhu in the place a return looks pretty bleak.
  13. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    Yes I have changed my mind as I originally wasn't going but living in Leicester and on the downward slope to oblivion it would be daft really not to attend all the matches I can while I am still able. I think we have got the message now and it is imprinted on my brain the names of those who won't be going as we get told at every opportunity on here and Facebook. Do you really think there will ever be Speedway at Brandon again or if a new stadium will be built? Afraid I don't so it makes no difference if there is a Coventry team riding at Leicester.
  14. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    You may well be right but I wouldn't use this forum as a guide because there aren't that many Coventry fans on here anyway. 20? 30 if they all come out of the woodwork?
  15. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    I think it did.......to some fans anyway.
  16. Leicester Lions 2018

    Of course they didn't. Poole only lost because of Jim Lynch.
  17. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    Not been moaning personally but I AM beginning to change my mind about going, depending on a few things making it possible. I think some others will be carrying on with their stance though as long as Mr Horton is involved.
  18. Race Nights

    Can't see Leicester racing on a Monday night being too successful either.
  19. Farewell Brandon - A Video Fly By

    Yes, it will be interesting to see if Swindon's new stadium ever materialises. Somehow I doubt it.
  20. OAP concessions, why?

    When there is a sun break she can usually read the whole book.
  21. OAP concessions, why?

    There is a lady at Leicester who always brings a book to read between races. Can't say I blame her.
  22. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    Jon Armstrong? Blimey how old is he now as he seems to have been riding forever?
  23. OAP concessions, why?

    Yes sorry Neil I forgot to add that. Adult admission was reduced from £18 to £17 I believe.
  24. OAP concessions, why?

    No he is just a disgruntled 30 something. Wish I could be around if/when he reaches old age.
  25. OAP concessions, why?

    2016 wasn't it? Got rid of concessions and made it cheaper for families and students. Would be interesting to know if the idea worked and encouraged more students and children to attend because it certainly upset a lot of OAP's who had supported the Bees for years. Like you say quite a lot refused to go any more but that would probably please SCB with less old people cluttering up the place with their fold up chairs.
