    AGM November 2018

    It’s the 12-14th November so not a weekend strangely enough.

    Panthers up for sale.

    Or glass half full, someone comes in and takes Panthers back in to the top division. Wouldn’t rule anything in or out at this stage.

    Reading that, King is far too big a risk for me for next season unfortunately. Your number 1 is so so important, and for that reason I wouldn’t even consider him. We’ve seen what happened to our season as soon as he was out, it completely collapsed. We struggled to replace him with riders of sufficient quality, and it cost us. When Schlein joined him and we also failed to adequately replace him too, it killed us off completely. If we gamble on King, the man you NEED to be leading from the front and scoring double points everywhere, and he struggles badly, then that could literally be a season wasted right from the get go. We found it impossible to replace him this year, so you’d think that would also be the case next year. We surely can’t be making that kind of gamble?

    Massif thank you

    You forgot Harvey Wallbanger. Another plus point..

    3 points for King’s R/R rides tells you everything you need to know. I appreciate it can at times be difficult to get suitable guests, but that can’t be used as an excuse by the promotion for the lack of quality replacements for so long. You can’t be without 2 of the best riders in the league in King and Schlein, and replace them with average (cheap) riders and expect to win meetings. We’ve even gone in to numerous meetings with R/R for said riders when it’s abundantly clear that won’t anywhere near cover their loss. That’s extremely disappointing.

    The continuing decline of Speedway

    Can you give any more details Tsunami? Is the rumour of 2 leagues, the top being akin to this years Championship, accurate?

    Despite reservations when we signed him, Coty Garcia has been a fantastic signing for us. I’d be looking to him if it’s possible.

    So if the jungle drums are to be believed, we could be in the “top” flight next year almost by default. Rumours of two leagues instead of 3 are gathering momentum. Top league similar to our current Championship standard, and then a league below that. Can’t see us opting for the lower league if that’s the case. Would be quite excited by that tbh. We could finally resume old rivalries with our Norfolk friends!
  10. Not from this meeting, but the Speedway GB twitter feed has just linked this one from Monday. Another stinker of a gate, but another cracking ride. This lad is going to entertain up and down the country for years if he stays fit and healthy. These two clips make him look a poor gater but he actually isn’t. He’s inconsistent from the gate, but I’ve seen him make plenty of blinders this season too.
  11. Great ride from young Drew!

    Absolutely nothing wrong with what Louis said in that tweet whatsoever

    We do indeed so let’s hope Nico is more on the pace than he seemed to be yesterday at Sheffield!

    Just another one of those seasons Badge unfortunately. Kind of expect it now tbh! it’s yet another blow as Barker is usually very good around Glasgow.
