  1. Interesting who is his son?
  2. Sign of a champion is that they can turn it on when the chips are down and the pressure is on. Tai proved tonight that when it matters he can turn it up an extra gear, and deal with whatever he has thrown at him. Those who can do what Tai does care the one's that more often than are champions once more on numerous occasions.
  3. Ban reduced from 28 days to 14 days. JPB originally said he wanted to take a break from speedway, only to change his mind the following day and asked to ride National League for Birmingham.
  4. Putting aside what Rob Godfrey has done in the past allegedly this season and concentrating the Phillips situation. Its clear that the rules state that you cannot drop a rider after cut off date. The only way that the rider can be replaced is if the said rider is injured or decides that he want to be dropped. if it is the latter the rider will then receive a 28 day ban. And that my friends is why Phillips continues to turn out for Scunthorpe. Because if he did not then he would be deemed to be withholding his services and would be unable to ride for his other club Coventry in the National League. If anybody is looking for anyone to blame for the Phillips fiasco it lies fairly and squarely at the shoulders of Rob Godfrey.

    Sheffield 2019

    Every end of season we have the rumour that the points limit is going to be drastically reduced and every year it proves to be untrue. And I see no reason why they would do now except if they decide to go for one league and have 6 man teams, but even then I think it would be reduced to around the 40 point mark.

    Sheffield 2019

    Strength in depth (1) Kyle Howarth 7.49 (2) Zaine Kennedy 5.20 (3) Ty Proctor 6.92 (4) Jake Allen 7.00 (5) Thomas Jorgensen 7.25 (6) Kasper Andersen 5.20 (7) Jack Smith 3.00
  7. All well and good, but the question is why has it took Mr Godfrey to realise that after the transfer cut off date? A rider should be safe in the knowledge that was the cut off date has passed that their place in the team should be safe, unless the rider leaves with mutual consent of both rider and club. And with the action been taken at Scunthorpe you have to question wht is the point in having a cut off date for transfers.

  9. Possible the best League Riders meeting that I have seen at Sheffield for a long time. On Cookies granted permission to ride the league and the meeting. I don't mind the fact that he has been allowed in the league even though he is a GP rider personally I don't give a toss, I do have slight reservations that he has not rode enough meetings to qualify but if I was if I would rather have him in or not I would certain prefer to have him in. In the end although not the best rider in the qualifying heats when it mattered Cookie show his class and turned on the style when it mattered. Of the riders competing I was particularly impressed with. Riss (Reminds me so much of another Erik) Lawson Howarth Wright Auty (till he crashed out) Proctor (most entertaining rider on show) Surprise Packages Summers Aarnio Disappointed Wells Nicholls Covatti.
  10. I would advise for today that you book in advance for the carvery.
  11. Like I ask is there any special dispensation regarding a re- arranged fixture. The Scunthorpe meeting was a re-arrange meeting, the Glasgow one was an original fixture. Racer Royal says he is fairly certain that rules were broken. Redcar I see are considering and reading the rule book to see if they have grounds to to lodge a complaint. Anybody got a spare couple of hours to look through the rulebook.
  12. Could it be that the Glasgow v Newcastle fixture was the original date whereas the Scunthorpe v Sheffield fixture was re- arranged as the original fixture was cancelled due to the weather.

    Sheffield v Edinburgh 23/08/18

    present form says a reasonably comfortable away win. But both Riss and Worrall have no form around Sheffield, especially Worrall who has consistently score 4 points around Sheffield in his last 4 visits to the track. Also think that the Edinburgh reserves could be a weak spot. Like I say on present form you have to Edinburgh, but do be shocked if the Tigers let out a defiant roar and get the win they need and crave.

    Workington short of cash, and I reckon they going to cash in on selling Captain Kyle to Sheffield.

    Sheffield 2018

    only one rider for me and the is the guy sponsored by the company as the Sheffield team.
  16. Oh Dear, I cannot believe anyone out there still takes anything that Jenga serious.
  17. Congratulations to the Bears last night rode as a team and totally took us apart from start to the finish. For the Tigers well we just rolled over and let the Bears have it. Another totally pathetic performance from some of the Tigers (I will exclude the two reserves, Broc Nicol and to a lesser extent Kyle Howarth) The whole place has a feeling that we have just given up and accept the wooden spoon. To some of the riders with what appear no desire to a Promotion that leaves the fans on the 1st and 2nd bend in darkness (never thought I would see the day where I needed to use a torch from a mobile phone to fill in the programme). Really beginning to wonder whether its really worth my while going for what little is left of the season.
  18. I don't think that the top three can ride so poor as they did last week. I am going for a home win.
  19. First and foremost Congratulations to Scunny on the win last night and victory richly deserved. Onto the Tigers, I refrained from commenting on last weeks shambles as I wanted to see the teams reaction to a meeting with a Scunny side that would give us a massive test. My view is that last night the responsibility lies firmly at the hands of the Heat Leader trio, all three need to take a hard look at themselves as they let the club and the fans down last night that was suppose to be celebration time for the club. Its hard to understand how two out of the three only a few weeks ago brought home a Championship title to the club, and then we get two performances within weeks not good enough I am afraid. The rest of the team for me did okay, Kurtz and Shanes did their jobs, and I refuse to criticise Broc Nichol or Joe Lawler, Broc has been put into a very tough position and Joe actually did a lot better than I anticipated. The rest of the season we now need to make sure that there is no more slip ups at home, we have not got a cat in hell's chance of make the Play Offs and the rest of the season is about pride. For Scunny they may have a chance of making the Play Offs, but injuries could play a major say in whether or not they do.
  20. Something that you have to accept with Jason Garrity is that he is always going to run the risk on picking up injuries on pretty regular basis, entertaining and great to watch but misses too many meeting. And I sure that I am correct in thinking that for the last three seasons his season has finished early due to injury.

    Chanpionship Pairs Somerset Friday 20th

    Based upon, they have a former winner and the other is a Somerset rider, yes.

    Chanpionship Pairs Somerset Friday 20th

    Group 1 looks the toughest group, I would go for Lakeside and Scunthorpe to come through that group. Group 2 Sheffield with Ipswich to come through that group. Sticking my neck out I will go for a Lakeside win.

    I think that by the end of this season the sport in this country will have reach a crossroads, and depending on which way the BSPA turns depends on whether the sport will flourish or quietly die. For me I think that we now need for the BSPA to relinquish control and hand running and the rules over to either one or two persons. For me two names jump out that have or have had connections with the sport. The first Jonathon Chapman Brash, Cocky, massive ego and not everybody's cup of tea, but has a bit of the entrepreneur about him and for me has the vision to take the sport forward into modern day. Alongside him Neil Machin Steady hand, vastly experienced Speedway Promoter, paid all of his bills, rent and riders on time and never owed any money, would be the perfect foil for Jonathon Chapman. For me that would be the Dream Team, not too sure whether or not the brash Essex Boy and the blunt Yorkshireman would work together but for they are the two that could rescue the sport.
  25. Not sure why there was need for any apology really. Does anybody take Jenga seriously.
