    World U21 Team Championships 2016

    Norway could take a few points off GB I think.Frederiksen is not a bad rider and in Moi at least they have another who has a lot of experience on Danish tracks.Sundvor I think also.Not sure about the others

    Second Half Meetings....

    It is what used to happen in the 70s and 80s.I generally always stayed,but I was in a minority.Some I guess look back through rose tinted glasses or maybe the tracks I visited were different to those others visited and most people stayed,though I doubt it

    World U21 Team Championships 2016

    Was thinking of going to this(Holsted) as it looked fairly even.Denmark not as strong as previous years.Australia look fairly good with one form Fricke and Kurtz having had a season of riding for Holsted before he came to GB.Now with wajkneckt in the team looks a lot weaker and as they are shutting the motorway I think I will just look at the result n the net

    Of course the Sabini gang,The Yiddishers and the Messina brothers(Salvatore,Carmelio,Alfredo,Attilio + Eugene) were born a bred cockneys,not like these immigrants that inhabit the place now

    Mitcham was also in my life time,never a great place.I should know,i went to school there, before moving up to a school in Wimbledon When I was in Mitcham for a pub breakfast last year the guvnor was telling us he had trouble from gypsies the night before.But that was never any different because gypsies have for centruies been attracted to the area when the old lavender fields were there even back in Queen Elizabeth I time!!!!!
  6. It is difficult to punish.It is obvious Andersen broke the rule of not racing at all times,but how can you prove Ljung was in on the deal unless you overheard them discussing the heat in the pits? I do recall passing two riders in the pits at a meeting who were discussing what they were going to do in a heat,so it does happen......

    Errr,another one of those parties you throw when some unfortunate bloke turn up, only for the lights to be dimmed and slow music playing in the background,and by the time his eyes have adjusted to the light he notices he is a lone with a bald yokel in a tutu..........no thanks Chuds

    Yes,i think Phil just means that when he hides the first post,he also hides the subsequent posts that are following on or they just don't make sense.I know this means that some of my excellent remarks are no longer to be seen,but it is a price I am willing to pay

    Seen a few films and documentaries about Jack the Ripper and am always surprised at what a pleasant area the east end was back then

    I gave a link to the 18th century when there was a large influx of both French Hugenots and Irish and there was trouble between them.Then in the 19th century there was a large influx of Jews.100,000 in the east end.Jack the Ripper supposedly done a bit of graffiti blaming them for something or other,i think and then Mosley and his bovver boys tried to march through the east end to provocate the local jewish community in 1936.Though it isn't really worth pointing things like that out as I am sure you know.

    The thing is the east end was for centuries over run with immigrants and was a dodgy place.I'd guess though that most people thought it better when they were younger or in a previous time https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spitalfield_Riots It was like on a South London site someone said "Tooting has gone downhill..." I mean it isn't as if Tooting was ever 'up-hill',it was always a run down area,just it was mainly populated with white faces,who like my family moved away at the first opportunity.Things don't stay the same.People don't like it if they think their area is going 'downhill',which today generally means foreigners taking over,but they also don't like it if the area goes 'up hill' such as all the anti-yuppie feelings in places like the docklands( I remember the uproar when Surrey Docks was renamed Surrey Quays for instance)or Streatham(and the St.Reathams stuff...).People move away because they can't wait to get to better area or in the latter cases,because they can no longer afford to buy a house in their area.Some of course rub their hands at the rocketing housing prices if they are lucky enough to have a house in an area going up hill....
