  1. Apologies if this is not the right place but I am clearing out the loft and have back copies of the Speedway Star which I am looking to get rid of 1st copy was the one covering the 1985 Bradford World Final and I stopped collecting in October 2016. The first 20 odd years are bundled and tied in date sequence with none missing, the last few years may be a bit hit or miss As you can imagine its a big bundle so if anyone wants them then they are welcome to them but will need to collect from Oxford PM me if there is any interest

    Very sad to hear. Bob was a good guy who gave a lot to this great sport RIP

    There were indeed some great tributes in what was a really good service. A good number of people, at a guess 100-120 and the service was a fitting send off to the old boy
  6. Golden Helmet Weekend Pardubice 16-18th September

    To be fair the train is pretty express, it only stops once between Prague and Pardubice. Problem comes at Pardubice Raliway Station as the transport to the stadium is pretty non existant. Hotels in Pardubice are pretty good though if you choose to stay One era ending moment for me yesterday was the retirement of Ales Dryml after his final ride when he went into the crowd as his home track and gave his helmet to a young fan After some of the horrendous injuries he suffered 9 years ago, I am glad to see him and Lukas now safely retired
  7. Poole Sign Lindback

    People are criticising the fact Poole have made this change and your argument is that they have broken no rules. Nor did Oxford in 2001 but you refused to accept it That is the commonality
  8. Poole Sign Lindback

    Yep but rightly or wrongly he had a Medical Certificate so no rules were broken but that was not OK in that instance. Same now isn't it ? BTW the end of that Dryml era today as Ales retired after his final race in the Czech Golden Helmet today
  9. Poole Sign Lindback

    Some real irony in this one Steve. 15 years ago when a rival club were operating within the rules you didn't have this same view Amazing how its different when the boot is on the other foot
  10. Belle Vue -v- Swindon 19th August

    Call it irony, Belle Vue had to blame someone on opening night who was not there so not why not Colin this time. My point was it will not be their fault What on earth that has to do with a promotion of 12/13 years ago is beyond me. We are talking about tonight and I was not there but if you can tell me is was anything other than a balls up then I concede
  11. Belle Vue -v- Swindon 19th August

    Are the promotion taking responsibility this time or blaming someone elsE ? Maybe the contractors, the fans, Colin Meredith ? You cab be sure it will not be their fault And still the sport contributes to its own decline I was planning my first EL meeting since 2007 tonight but at least Coventry had the decency to call it off this morning

    Very rarely post these days but what a sad state of affairs when a rider who while I believe has contributed significantly to British speedway but actually benefited hugely from the way British Speedway allowed him to develop yet again kicks his country in the teeth Frankly I could not care less whether he agrees with whatever it is he is criticising the BSPA for in his cryptic tweet but the fact is that as Britains No 1 rider he should damn well make himself available to ride for his country. As for all this maybe in 2018, well for me once he is out he stays out, why should he dictate when he does and does not ride? I said the same when Scot Nicholls threw his teddy out of the pram as well and was glad he was left out of this years WC Time that egos were popped back in the box and riders got on with riding for the country who has supported them, Tai may moan about the BSPA but when he was young and riding in just about every league over here but with no speedway anywhere else in the world he was glad of Britain. Now he is a big fish he wants the sport to dance to his tune Sorry but perspective WC or not he is not bigger than the sport Very very sad for someone who has been treated very well by British Speedway over many year

    Dangerous comparison between a sport which is on the up and up with money pouring into it at a level that the participants could only ever of dreamed of and a sport that is frankly dying on its arse But if you see speedway as a good comparison to football then fair enough. Personally I think its a dreadful comparison when you talk about the bigger picture
  15. Poole 2016

    He is doing his job, nobody can argue with that. I think the problem is that by doing that he is destroying the Elite League, his financial muscle is talking very loud and clear and you question whether too many other clubs will bother trying to compete because they just can't So for the good of Poole Speedway in the very short term he is doing his job, for the long term future of Poole and for the future of speedway in the UK I would seriously question it Still at the point he has nobody to compete with I guess he will get bored and then Poole may just be left in a mess as well Not sure too many people should be applauding this if you look at the bigger picture
