  1. No flies on you Jenga.........well spotted. Its over 20 years since I did any gynaecology, but I was a dab hand in labour suite with retained placenta, nice small mitts me. Well done Comics, after the 1/5 in heat 5 they had a sense a win was on and thoroughly deserved it. Wee Dan looks a man on the up and very stylish. Go on and win it.......Lakeside the biggest hurdle perhaps.
  2. Well Wee Dan , Proctor and Bach on a going day have Armadale form and Mason Tampon should score from reserve. Come on Marra`s the draw is there for you.......with a bit of help.

    Edinburgh v Workington CS 13/4/18 @7.30pm

    Rain due to go off by noon latest then receeding chance of rain with cloud all day. Lets avoid another late call off ....please. Think we should sign Noah and his crew at this stage...I`m getting webbed feet. Makes you wonder why water is not our No1 export.......
  4. I`d be happy with a win on the night. All Weegie heatleaders ride our place well, only Viss looks like bambi on ice at the dale We might have an advantage at reserve but if Skippy behaves he can win heats. Likely to take Max and Billy a few weeks to get the hang of our wonderful oval, so that puts lots of pressure on Ricky and the germans. Looks like the weather will play ball. Bring it on.

    Minutes silence for the Chatzone / Chatroom. Wonderful service run by ML and Dekker and a sad loss. Definitely enjoyed the banter there during a magnificent run, and all the texting from Monarchs fans up and down the country. Have a graceful retirement Caroline, and a few beaujolais

    But Dek if you re- apply your blue and gold specs you will remember many double figure hauls at home and away. Multiple 5-1s with Cookie . 7 wins out of 8 in Grand finals (against Somerset and Weegies) at the dale, and a stellar performance winning the 4s at the STMP. I`m sure there were more. No doubt away from the blue and gold vest he was inferior, but I think the harsh handling at BV might have accelerated that, mibees aye mibees naw, but his ego was well nurtured by the Monarchs management team and we certainly saw the best of him. In Sport , going back rarely succeeds I grant you but this was one option I would have been happy with. Anyway moving on , it will be interesting to see how this team develops during the year. Like 2012 we may struggle in heats 13 and 15, but I hope Erik will quickly sort that out. The bottom of the team is built to improve averages and on big away tracks Josh and Matt will score much better than last years fellows who really struggled, so that will compensate. This team will end stronger than it starts me-thinks

    Improving averages is the idea, which makes me wonder why Sedgy at 6.2 and Theo at 4.3 were not obvious improvers especially with their skill at the dale. Remember Sedgy reached an average of 8 with us at the end and would be a more than capable 3rd HL if we could coax him back to form.

    Agreed...2014 was an annus mirabilis. Alex and John have a good track record in team building. They rarely get it wrong...2011 maybe the only time in recent seasons when waiting for WL left us handicapped at reserve all season. This team is certainly built with lots of promise. Bring it on.

    As a monarch 2014 was by far the best .....the invincibles won lots of bling and made the season memorable, especially the Pairs. I first watched speedway at Coatbridge in `73, Dave Gifford, Pogo Collins and Trapper Wilson to name a few, but 76 was my favourite a certain Mitch Shirra lit up the shale that year, and a few later the Monarchs rose from the Ashes back at Powderhall.........happy days

    No surprise there . Max needs more exposure to big tracks to progress, still he should do fine at Lakeside if he traps well. Thanks for all your efforts in blue and gold, but a change of scene is needed.
  11. Agreed, need a good stat. Think Roo might be out in heat 1, cos that`s our weakest pairing.....

    Championship Play Offs

    We have had a slick track most of the year......lets hope the heavens open and we get some mud, that will give us some real home advantage.
  13. don`t think this will be a ticket event. The Glasgow promo and paper handouts have a bad recored

    Redcar V Edinburgh 24/8/17

    Enjoyed visit to STMP as always, great track. Long tail again caught us out, Bears strength in depth won thru, Ricky a class apart. Max low on confidence and after briefly showing in heat 2, reverted to type, sad to watch and probably needs a rest and to think where he goes next. maybe we need to get Theo to get a Uk passport........Carrie can sort that, after all with a surname of Pijper, he must have Scottish ancestry. Either that or Jock Sedgmen for next year....???? 4th place still up for grabs, whoever loses least at home between these two will claim it , but be cannon fodder for Sheffield in the play off semi.
  15. Good start to the days sport for the Low-bees. Maybe minor miracles can happen at the Stade de la weegie....
