    I did not , but that does mean it is true or otherwise. I will not be there whatever the start time.

    Think you would find Ged disputes this view

    Memories of Ron How and Brian Crutcher.

    I saw both these riders in action but more so Brian Crutcher. Brian retired when still very young (25 I think) he lost interest in Speedway due to business demands and as he would later say the closure of Wembley. He was when focussed the match of the top riders of the day Fundin, Moore, Briggs Craven etc. I believe he has subsequently said that he suffered nerves on the big occasions which handicapped him in top individual events. There is a fairly recent Biography of him which will give more details I will PM the title etc when I locate the book which I have somewhere

    My own view is that Ged did not go voluntarily

    Think there is a lot more than we know or will ever know.

    Weird stuff going on at Peterborough. Looks like we have three promoters with another on the way. Seems to me Ged and Neil being squeezed out. Following the normal course those in know being threatened with dire retribution if their lips are opened and a three line whip to ensure silence. I do not trust Buster but I would be more worried if I was a Stars fan as it seems he is currently for whatever reason more interested in Peterborough. To be more precise the EOES
  7. Remember them all and more.
  8. For this to really work Speedway and Ice Hockey teams need the same name as in Wembley Lions and Harringay Racers, a pity Peterborough did not see this. Not sure how or when the names came about but there was already a Panthers Ice Hockey team, with a famous history. Who can forget legendary Chick Zamick?
  9. There was was always a strong connection between Speedway and Ice Hockey going back pre war

    We should be looking forward to new season. Unfortunately with the secrecy and subterfuge that has been the norm during close season as I have said before I am left with a feeling of foreboding . I just think there is lot more going on than we know and am suspicious of Busters motives. I can't lose sight of how eager he was to accept the 30 pieces of silver

    Not sure about legal stuff but I had heard somewhere there were announcements due re promoters

    my understanding from Ged is that he will be around but in a much reduced capacity

    It may be possible that they are right with their concerns especially with the Chapman full house and holding the trump card

    I have feeling that Peterborough is now foremost in Busters plans. What those plans may be is any ones guess

    Somewhat enigmatic to say the least!!!!

    I have reason to believe the team was not as expensive as many people think. Further there may well be a lot of regrets amongst the triumvirate.

    OMG they certainly know how to get the fans adrenalin flowing, had a sleepless night with the anticipation and was not disappointed. Haven't been so excited since I got a pair of socks that didn't fit for Christmas
  18. Just cough up your cash and stop whingeing. Pay by direct debit and don't bother to turn up if all you can do is moan

    BSPA Message to Fans (imo)

    When will fans realise that once they have paid their money they serve no useful purpose

    A statement from the bosses could put an end to the matter

    I have never had such a feeling of foreboding regarding Speedway in general and Panthers in particular as I have at the moment.

    BSPA Message to Fans (imo)

    The BSPA would like it to be known that the late cancellation of their "piss up in a brewery " was entirely unforeseen and beyond their control . A spokesman said " how on earth could we have been expected to know the brewery had closed several years ago, you would have thought someone might have told us" We would like to assure fans that the necessary increase in admission charges to defray our loss will be kept to a minimum.

    This move more likely to be IMO due to non involvement of Lambert family

    I spoke to Neil Watson on Friday night who assured me that he and Ged were still the promoters. I cant see that he would lie to me on this matter. y

    Wimbledon Memories

    Whilst it is evident that Stock Cars and the like are far more successful spectator wise than Speedway , personally I have never been able to see the reason
