    AGM November 2018

    Me too. I wouldnt be if Leicester were still in the PL but CL with more teams has renewed my enthusiasm for 2019.

    It perhaps did when Sky were running the show.

    Okay with warning stop lights then like on a car. Solved.

    Sold raffle tickets too apparently. Don't think I have ever met him but I did ask him on Facebook why he couldn't go to the Coventry matches when he said he wanted to. His answer was he wasn't allowed inside the stadium and he didn't know why as he'd done nothing wrong.

    Not forgetting his continual pretty dismal GP appearances which must have cost him a bomb.....er. Pride and common sense should have kicked in ages ago and he should have stuck to league racing.
  6. Hope this never happens or that's me finished. Already had 3 weeks of the damn things upsetting the dogs.

    AGM November 2018

    I have said this before but when riding for Coventry ~ which covers a number of years ~ Chris used to spend months trying to get the right set ups on his machines at the beginning of the season and then by July he would be flying until the end of the season. So why was it necessary to then get rid of these and start again the next season on new equipment , which meant another frustrating session of trying to get the right set-ups. Seems a crazy waste of money to me.

    I wondered why The White Knight had disappeared.

    Yes unfortunately you are probably right.

    AGM November 2018

    The important word in that sentence is 'gave'.........meaning in the past. I used to really enjoy matches at Coventry when there was a group of us and Speedway was just an interruption to the fun we had so I didn't really notice how many track grades there were, but it's not the same at Leicester with just the dog for company who spends the evening asleep.

    AGM November 2018

    I am not so sure that's a good idea. What if the air fence got damaged and held up the main match half way through? Like you say the meeting needs to flow but the league match is what the majority of us want to see so that should be run through without any interruptions. I even get fed up with all the track grading as I don't think half of it is necessary.

    AGM November 2018

    100% correct. Not many fans were interested in second half racing 20/30 years ago and they're certainly not going to be bothered now with the majority of riders also in a rush to leave after the league match.

    BSF Awards - Premiership

    No need for anyone to vote. You've won it hands down.

    Leicester Lions 2019

    What a shame it's just riders. Up until a few years ago we always had Annual Forum Member Awards in the close season with various categories.

    I thought all riders loved Poole? He probably can't wait to get back if his average fits.
  17. Gemini

    Leicester Lions 2019

    Hans will probably be returning to Poole anyway?

    AGM November 2018

    I won't quote the post as it's quite long but what a brilliant one it is. Agree with every word and so I'm sure does every sensible speedway fan. Nothing will happen though, apart from probably the last paragraph will turn out to be true again.
  19. Gemini

    Leicester Lions 2019

    That's a difficult question. Whilst I have been supporting the Lions and NL Coventry this season I think if the standard dropped that low a lot of fans wouldn't bother and certainly wouldn't be willing to pay £17 or £18. I would prefer the Championship League purely because there are more teams so a bigger variety but it would be a shame if the riders you mention are no longer in it.....apart from Rory Schlein.

    Now that is something my son has always said about Speedway as he thinks the race is always decided in the first lap, or in his view the first bend. I've tried to get him interested over the years but to no avail.

    Double Headers With Same Team

    And me. Back then I was a Leicester supporter and I remember quite a few double decker buses heading over to Coventry along the A46 ~ no M69 back then.
  22. Gemini

    Leicester Lions 2019

    Can't see that ever happening as it is a popular place to watch the racing, also a lot of trees at the back. I don't think that would go down very well if they had to be removed.

    Leicester Lions 2019

    On the contrary I am always interested in any comments flagrag posts. Obviously there are some things that can't be confirmed until after the AGM but others will be released earlier. I think you need to chill a bit as you seem to be easily irritated. Shame we no longer do the Annual Forum Awards or you'd be a cert for the Victor Meldrew one.

    Outstanding Fixture

    Coventry have completed all their home NL league fixtures haven't they? If you mean National Trophy I doubt anyone will be bothered.
