    Sheffield 2019

    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.

    Lions v Glasgow 17th August

    What will Leicester do, to give Craig Cook the needle?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

    I would go for a letter from SCB to both clubs, strong warning, keep your riders in order, otherwise in future you will be punished as a club for bringing the sport into disrepute

    Suspending these riders only causes more problems than are solved. Fines have to be the right way of dealing with it, together with appropriate levels of punishment for their clubs. To begin with, fine the riders their earnings from that match, then a percentage from a set number of matches from now onwards.

    That Marshal was dumb to walk in front of a 500cc bike & rider. Eastbourne should be fined by the HSE and ordered to train their Marshals properly. The riders were also dumb and beside being brought to book for being unprofessional, probably breached SCB regulations.

    Leicester vs Scunthorpe 10/08/19

    Maybe Harris was on a fixed match fee whereas Douglas is paid more on a points basis?

    Get Glyn Taylor back. He used to be able to fix pretty much anything.

    Eastbourne v Glasgow Semi Final

    Looked to me like Cook tried to shove the steward with his beer gut but made a poor job of it because he hasn't got one.

    Is that picture of Nick Morris on the SGB website a recent one? He looks a bit on the chubby side to me.
  14. I like a good balanced mixture of brains and balls.
  15. The whole thing may as well be handed over to Billy Smart's Circus, because that's what this track is more appropriate for. It was made out of rubbish and it's exactly what it produces.Out of 22 heats there were about 6 where it was a fair circuit, possible to race and succeed using inside, outside, and middle. For the rest, it had only one viable line and actually in the end just became a stunt-riding exhibition.
