  1. Best wishes to josh pickering, a proper entertainer. Surprised no one has started a post for this crucial match with the Tigers needing a draw or win to qualify for the semis of the championship shield . And just wondering when will mr blobby post that the monarchs are understrenghth and have no chance.
  2. Yes totally played into Glasgow's hands. After all the Glasgow riders only had to travel to Glasgow with their private jets, ride on Friday night and then be chauffeur driven down to Eastbourne, have nap and massage before having to ride on Saturday evening whilst watching the grand prix on their mobile devices as there mechanics sorted the bikes.

    Leicester v BV Colts May 18th

    If the sudden availability of Bickley was the issue surely they would have simply got rid of luke chessel who had been out for over a year with a shocking serious injury and kept lawlor who had scored reasonably well in 2018. It wasn't just vaping it was his subsequent reaction, the disturbance to hotel guests and the implications for the Tigers owners with the hotel, sponsors that resulted in his dismissal
  4. I hope young Tom bounces back after his bad accident, he's a real talent. Good result for the Tigers and well done to all the riders with a special mention to Connor Coles Anyone know why the track appeared to be tricky and cause problems.

    Eastbourne 2019

    So who would you put in. You've built a team to do well at Eastbourne to bring in the crowds and stabilise the club and it seems to be working. If you were losing at home on a regular basis then yes try to change but as I've said before who do you bring in. Your boys were up against a good team that picked former Tigers as guests and who didn't let us down. Read the Glasgow v eagles thread even the ref thought it was a good match. So go along tonight support your team and I'm sure you'll get a good victory
  6. I was a bit worried having to use 3 guests but they did us proud as did cookie and co
  7. Whilst I agree we should win am a bit worried about having 3 guests. I m sure they will do ok but if not it could be close

    Photographers in British Speedway

    Thanks for trying to help. I did what you suggested and got lots of stuff about 'Annoying Moment of the Week' and a couple of speedway photographers who attached it to some photos along with other hash tags. There wasn't any mention of young Taylor.

    My immediate reaction is the same as others - why have a go at a youngster. But I then wonder who are the photographer's. We have a number at Glasgow with a couple being particularly prominent and I'm sure they have helped Taylor when he was starting. Is it them, surely not or some the other ones. It would be interesting to know otherwise every photographer at these tracks will be assumed to be those that had a go at him
  10. Any idea who is guesting at reserve.

    That will be the grand son of former footballer Willie Johnston or did you mean the grand son of former rugby star John Rutherford?

    A football match lasts 90 minutes plus stoppages. But you don't get 90 minutes of thrilling play! Time wasting, play acting, time to take corners throw ins, substitutes, passing side ways etc. A speedway match should also be 90 minutes with the 15 heats being the main but not the only attraction. So a bit unfair to then compare costs There's probably someone asking on a football forum why is football so dear compared to speedway. Also unfair comparing league racing with GPs. GP riders have a team of mechanics in the pits changing set ups and tyres so can make changes quickly. Most riders in league speedway have a mate that helps out if they are lucky. Home riders changing set ups might explain the delays and also explain why some away riders do better after a interval. So in some cases you may need delays to get good racing but you may also then get the wrong result!

    Plus any scunthorpe fans that have made plans to travel to Glasgow and Glasgow fans who have been robbed of a home match on a decent track with a trip through to the trick track the only alternative or then again there's always the pub

    Edinburgh were told to fit in the meeting with Glasgow. Glasgow have had to cancel there home match with scunthorpe which means after this Friday we don't have a home team match till 21 june.
  15. So what would you propose. A 10 point man quits/withholds his services he can be replaced by a guest up to 10 points average. A 2 point man quits he can be replaced by a rider with the same average. In both cases the team is given 28 days to find a replacement. what is wrong with that rule.
