    Newcastle v Birmingham (Champ) 1830 19/09/21

    Are we allowed a facility for Barker?

    Awful news about Dave Tattum, RIP. I will keep my views on Barker to myself.

    Tell you what, everybody. We may have months and years to rue closure. But let's start only when the season is actually over and as and when we may find there won't be a takeover. Me, I'm looking forward to Sunday and hopefully the chance to say thank you to young Mr. Grant. After that? Who knows, but let's wait and see what happens. I'm not giving this up yet.

    Statler & Waldorf have got that gig in their pocket for the foreseeable. Not a patch on Millard or Lanning though. And I thought Sam might be more insightful than he has been to date. Peter Adams would be the man for that job.

    I haven't been to Cambois for years but as I recall one of the problems would be that there is nowhere on the site for the supporters to watch from, except for a few round the track itself. Also there may have been an issue with disturbing a toad habitat. City stadium would be brilliant: it was half built for a Newcastle Commonwealth Games bid which failed. However it is surrounded by housing and I would think planning would be very problematic.

    Gypsies Green stadium in South Shields is unused and looks almost derelict to me. It has or had a velodrome in it so might be the right size? I don't know who owns it - the Council? Outside Newcastle but good access through the Tunnel, and catchment area includes Wearside.

    Come on Pinny man, you couldn't see the back straight. On the subject of weather-related call offs, at around the same time we were on holiday in the old country and tipped up at Somerton Park on a sunny and hot afternoon to see (as we thought) Newport take on Berwick. In fact the match had been called off the previous day because (if I recall) the track was waterlogged but no-one had told Michal Makovsky who was sitting outside the stadium by his van. Lovely fella, he tried (but failed) to get us to transfer our allegiance to the Bandits. Happy days...

    What a sad day. Nobody could have done more than Rob Grant has; he has had a thankless task which - as it appears - may not have been made easier by various authorities. So thank you again Rob; and at the end of the season we Brough Park faithful will join the supporters of the increasing number of ghost clubs. It's a great pity but it seems that it's the sad reality.
  11. On Sunday Barry said not. Next home meeting 12 September, if I remember right.

    Dead right. Our friend should grow up. I hope we put on something of a show, both as a Diamonds supporter and for the sake of the, er, good natured bumper sun-soaked holiday crowd ((c) S Shovlar 2021) Oh, and for our own Dandelion ;-)
  13. That's a very fair preview.
  14. How much difference do you think he would have made? (No offence to TB intended!)
