    Places pressure on Perks to do the job of the "senior reserve" now. Is he up to it??

  6. Ricky Wells will probably just not be re-engaged by Poole. Jonasson was clearly just in no fit state to ride in the first place, was only a short term signing and so he can slip away, again. But will Poole have the balls to sack their two main failures, or will it be all pals again and everything forgotten? Playoffs are a fact of speedway life and they usually take place on difficult tracks, either doctored or weather-related. If a team decides to include snowflakes in it's team, they're just increasing the probability they will fail as a team at this time of the season.

    Nasty case of splinters in his backside caused by sitting on the fence too much. Lying on the beach probably beats the **ck out of riding for peanuts at Sheffield and going through the motions for Peterborough, although swimming in certain parts of the Med you do literally go through other peoples motions.

    Kelvin Tatum assisted by Nigel Pearson is the obvious choice

    Possible alternative version: "The only reasonable offer made so far, has come from a Mr K.Chapman of Norfolk, so please, please, if anyone has some spare cash and wants to prevent him from buying Sheffield speedway, get a move on otherwise we won't have any choice but to sell to him."

    Lions v Glasgow 17th August

    Playing Elton John's "Saturday Nights Alright for Fighting" over the PA a few times? In fact Eastbourne should adopt that as their main intro music.

    What will Leicester do, to give Craig Cook the needle?
  13. Hamish McRaker

    Cook, Vissing and Kennett banned.

    I guess it was down to who was representing the riders' cases, and how well their case was put.
  14. Hamish McRaker

    Cook, Vissing and Kennett banned.

    If that's correct, surely the other riders bans have to be lifted too?

    On the Eastbourne website you can find a report on the league match at home v Glasgow back in May. Accidents galore, especially by the sounds of it during the first 5 or 6 heats, plus the serious injuries suffered by Brennan in heat 12, by which time the overall incidents rate looked to have dropped. Subsequent comments by Eastbourne management were putting the fault for the successive run of defeats at that time squarely down to riders' poor on track decision-making. But I bet that match and the number of incidents, especially early on, had lingered in the minds of Cook and perhaps also other riders and they arrived at Arlington with minds already on high alert.
