    The main one being that he's a miserable little git.

    Tungate won't create the unity in the pits that Harris would have, Poole discovered that Harris is worth far more than just the points he scores, so those who think this makes the team stronger, I wouldn't be too sure.

    10 favourite Irish riders

    I remember Richie Tyler from Ireland, doing a second half at Halifax (late60s-early70s).

    10 favourite British riders

    Frank Varey, Jack Parker, Tommy Roper, Eric Boothroyd, Arthur Forrest, Graham Plant, Nigel Boocock, Mark Loram, Andrew Silver and Kenny Carter. I never saw Varey ride but we were born in the same village and he was a friend of my dad, who was also a motorcyclist.

    He didn't keep quiet, he made a statement about it on Twitter.

    Jade Mudgway is from NZ and rode here a few years back, he now lives in the north and will be Redcar team manager in the coming season, could be linked?

    A top 10 to be proud of.

    This is impossibly difficult, if pride is simply achievement then just go through the records and list the most impressive but if pride means someone who seemed to give their all, no matter what, then we get down to our personal experiences in whatever capacity we attended Speedway. Blokes who gave their all and who readily come to mind (mine that is) are; Aub Lawson, Nigel Boocock, Peter Craven, Torbjorn Harrysson and Andrew Silver. I think someone who you know is doing their best, is at least as impressive as someone who has the winning formula and seems to find it oh so easy.

    Not rideing

    You can't even spell his name right, let alone the heading.

    Workington 2019

    It does but this has proven that the team was hired falsely, if you aren't sure of running you shouldn't be able to assemble a side, most if not all of those riders would have been snapped up months ago if they had been known to be available.

    I think think next years team is better than this year's was.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Instead of going round every thread making provocative remarks, why not just top yourself? That way we'll all be happy.

    It's "should HAVE been compulsory" and it shouldn't. I thing British Speedway should give opportunities to young British riders, I think this years setup looks both refreshing and exciting and a pleasant change from helping foreign riders develop.

    Poole 2019

    I can't remember that (I'm an old git) but I remember how impressive he was against Carter because it reminded me about my dad's description of the dominant Vic Duggan when he visited Odsal one time.

    Poole 2019

    I was at Halifax for that, Kenny had already beaten Penhall home and away but Lee claimed to have built a special engine for the Halifax leg, He broke the track record in the first match race and continued to beat the record as it stood before that night, in all his races. He had a five ride maximum in the match and won heat and final in the second half. The two of them were superb British talents who wasted their lives.

    You're joking! They owe the ratepayers of Manchester a huge amount of money.

    Cook replies.... More Just read the statement from @TheAces management and I totally refute everything within it. I have texts & phone records that I will happily share. IF I was told on the 19th then I would have quickly acted. I was still playing tele tennis up until the end of the month. (Cont..)
