    Programmes?

    As someone who lives in Spain, football programmes are non-existent. Indeed you rarely find a football programme anywhere on the Continent. It is very much a British phenomenon! As for speedway programmes, they hail back to a bygone age. A one-page scorecard would meet the need, given out with admission, with adverts on the reverse to pay for the printing costs.

    The Future of Armadale Stadium

    That's rather a dangerous comment. Are you suggesting that once they flog all the properties in Armadale, that planning permission should be granted? On that basis, the Monarch's may need a new home sooner rather than later!!!

    Coventry City Community Day

    It has been said before, but it is well worth repeating....the cost of admission is only part of the reason why people choose (or choose not to) attend an event. Wasps Rugby use the Ricoh, and average 18,000...with their highest attendance this season just short of 27,000. They charge up to £56 a seat, and don't have to give tickets away to get a decent crowd. The lesson to learn is to produce a package of entertainment that fires the public's imagination and makes it a "must see event" each and every time. Then the price of admission is not so important!!

    Bye bye Gate girls?

    Alternatively, they could dress in the uniforms of Nazi Storm Troopers, and ask them to distribute "Britain First" literature before and after the meetings. That should help make certain right-wing loonies ecstatic!!

    Bye bye Gate girls?

    I'm not sure if the "Gate Girls" are paid very much (if anything) but given the parlous state of speedway's finances, getting shot of them might save a few bob!

    You really do need to take a little water with it.....and perhaps seek some anger management therapy!!! For those who REALLY DO ENJOY THE SPORT, I repeat you can watch the movie whenever you choose on Terrarium TV. No egos required for that!!!!

    Once A Jolly Swagman

    You really seem to have something an attitude!! I was pointing out for those who have a life and can't necessarily sit around waiting to watch something on an obscure minority channel, that they have the option of viewing anytime on Terrarium TV. Why shame on anyone, or any channel? Personally, I find it a delight that there is more than one source to view this film.

    Sold to 02? Still owned by the public purse I think, currently under the auspices of the Homes and Communities Agency and operated by Anschutz Entertainment Group. Ill-informed? Surely not!!!

    For those who don't like to be dictated to by TV schedulers, (particularly in respect of a film made in the 1940s!) you can choose to watch it whenever you like on Terrarium TV.

    Race Nights

    I thought Easter Monday this year was on the 2nd April, and the Polish League season starts on the 6th April.

    THINGS DON'T CHANGE

    Has it ever been any different? I remember when I first went to speedway in the 60s my old Dad telling me that the racing was much better "before The War"!! As was football, cricket and virtually everything else as well!! The only difference was that unlike now, there was a few more folk watching! Remember.....Nostalgia ain't what it used to be!!

    Reason For The Poll On Forum

    Very well old boy, thank you......and I trust all is good with you Enjoying the sunshine in Spain, although I'm looking forward to September / October when it tends to cool down a little! Managed to persuade the bar in the village to stick on the GP last night. Interestingly the Spaniards were more interested than my fellow Expats!

    Reason For The Poll On Forum

    More importantly many don't bother going to meetings anymore (and I'm one!).

    Bt Coverage

    This is available in Spain. Most football matches come with four audio tracks, one of which is just the crowd noise. The same is also offered for their Moto GP coverage.

    Bt Coverage

    Judging from the plethora of remarks about the merits or otherwise of certain commentators, I'm guessing that things have changed since I left the UK. When I lived in "the mother land" they had this wonderful facility whereby if you didn't like what was being broadcast, you could continue to watch the pictures and mute the sound! I am pleased to say that here in Spain we can still do this. Indeed the last meeting I watched was greatly enhanced by a soundtrack of Richard Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, Tom Wait's Closing Time and Tom Petty's Full Moon Fever. All too symptomatic of the UK. The collective ignorance of the plebiscite leads to the UK economy being wrecked, Sterling rapidly going down the toilet, and now you Brits are unable to turn off the sound on your TVs. It does seem very unfair!!!!
