    Pretty sure Matt Ford will have.....as for Lynn........not so sure.

    Things can only get better?

    Announcements always used to be subject to press embargoes. In the days of KREST I was often told things a couple of days in advance but never divulged stuff to anyone. l can only assume Robin Brundle hasn't used embargoes or the journalists nowadays don't honour them. Hopefully Brundle willlearn quickly who he can trust if he is serious about a new relationship with the fans.
  4. OAP concessions, why?

    As long as they don't all borrow War and Peace Sexist!!!

    Rings a bell
  6. OAP concessions, why?

    I agree with SCB on some points but to turn his argument on it's head why should children get in free or at a reduced rate. Presumably their parents chose to have them with all associated costs so why should working childless people subsidise them. Dont say they are the future because without the present OAPs on their reduced admission there will be no future

    I said times have changed, so I agree with you on that. Where I disagree is your 2nd paragraph. He does have a valid point BUT appealing for sponsors for new equipment whilst at the same time complaining about his employer, which effectively is what he is doing is IMHO rather silly (polite version). as A Orlov says the riders have to stick together over the asset system, which I agree is wrong and illegal but I have a slight amount of sympathy for the promoters, who lets face it are not charities. Some riders demand far more than promoters can afford to pay, and have an inflated view of their own worth, and I just have the feeling that promoters have got together this season and tried to put a bit of reality into things with Ford and Buster (that we know about) only being interested in full transfers. i could be completely wrong but it's never good when one side holds all the trump cards, there has to be a balance.

    I think what Midland Red meant was years ago the likes of Bettsy and co didn't dream of making a living, certainly not at age 19. The demands of the clubs were the same. I can't remember many, if any, cases of riders not turning up because of their "earning a living" job. They turned up with bike in a rack on the back of a car and just got on with it. that said Lambert rightly wants to be a professional speedway rider, times have changed. What he needs to realise is that being a professional is full time and that includes any statements he makes to media. For any professional to publicly say he is reluctant is extremely amateurish and could well be counter productive if the feelings it's stirred up in many fans is anything to go by.

    Never a truer word spoken. At the end of the day a rider can always find somewhere to compete against others with the same mindset, even if it's just some waste ground. What they need to realise is that if they want to be paid for doing what they enjoy they need to treat paying customers with respect (and not just by posting on social media) and not as an inconvenience, which is how some come across.

    Would that have anything to do with riders prepared to attack the track rather than whinging? just asking
  11. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Could equally have been they were in negotiation and Lambert wanted more than was offered so thought his announcement would add a bit of pressure. i have no idea but being a Libran I like to find two sides to everything to to be honest I didn't consider Lambert's announcement to be very professional but it takes all sorts
  12. I'm an oldie but cannot fault your argument above.
  13. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Which I would assume would add extra costs to his travel, not sure any U.K. Promoter would be best pleased at having to foot that bill for a UK rider. just my view
  14. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Having read some posts on the Poole thread it seems Ford is not allowing Holder out on loan and will only sell him. Putting both situations together getting 2+2 making half a dozen I'm hoping it means promoters are standing firm together and putting a stop to the tail wagging the dog. please someone tell me I'm not dreaming

    Sounds as if his idea of his worth and that of UK promoters differ
