  1. He's suggesting all Premier matches be held at and streamed from Belle Vue.
  2. Can't understand the obsession that some fans have that young Brits should try and get a contract abroad. They then complain when riders like Woffinden stop racing in the UK or complain when our fixtures are messed about cos riders are racing abroad. We should be pleased that Harris, Lawson, the Worralls, King, Barker and the rest prioritise the UK to earn a steady living rather than persue a contract in the grand prix circus.

    Corona virus

    Wouldn't be surprised if they are also giving advice to Donald Trump

    Corona virus

    And that of course is why we no longer catch a cold or the flu.... Cos they've gone away

    Too busy helping out at the stadium, looking forward to seeing our season tickets, checking that our tigers jackets will last another year, planning our holidays so we can support our team home and away. I could go on, just excited that's not long before the season starts. Hope all speedway fans have a great time supporting their team.

    Why post something like this? Perhaps he's just tired, feels its time to sit back and is really pleased that someone has come forward to take over the reins. Take a bow Mr English for all you have done for the Diamonds and speedway.

    Danny Ayres RIP

    Totally shocked by this sad news. He was loved by the Glasgow fans. RIP Danny

    Team GB

    Surprised no one has mentioned that GB are in action against a Rest of the World team at Glasgow on Saturday 18 April 2020.

    If I was a Monarchs fan I'd be a lot more confident of not being slain this year than in recent years. I think they will come through thinking they could win rather than than just coming through to get a reminder of what fast exciting speedway looks like

    Edinburgh & Glasgow race night

    Not at all the 100 Edinburgh fans would try to get in through the the pits gate and wouldn't buy anything unlike the Glasgow fans. The use of the word customers was deliberate

    Edinburgh & Glasgow race night

    Very simplistic point of view. You are assuming the same number of Glasgow and Edinburgh fans will attend no matter the day or time which we all know is nonsense. As an example let's assume 900 Glasgow fans attend Glasgow on a Friday night but only 650 on a Saturday night. They might be lucky and get 100 Edinburgh fans so would be worse off by 250 customers. As has been said fans can still do a northern tour and these fans say 50 are a welcome bonus but the bottom line is that both Glasgow and Edinburgh need to race when they can maximise attendance by there own fans and presumably that's why they both race on a Friday. Doesn't suit every fan but nothing will.

    So that's why they left the monarchs! Thanks for confirming what we all knew, the Armadale track isn't 'perfect'

    I wasn't going to comment but fairs fair, you do talk a lot of sense (sometimes)

    Presumably you'll wait until the new averages are out on May the 4th before signing Luke

    Is this based on insider knowledge being a Peterborough fan, or your unbelievable abilities with a calculator - has the points limit been agreed and approved yet. or are you copying the Phil the Ace post from page 9. have to say the boy Nicol is going to be busy riding for at least half of the teams in CL

    And that was why Paul was crucial for the team - heat 14 wins. Sometimes I can't understand some of the 'comments/ criticism' that appears on here. If Paul scored well it tended to mean Claus didn't and vice versa. Claus was criticised mid way thru the season as having his usual dip yet by the end of the season he was incredible and had upped his average which, with due respect, at his age is something to be proud of.

    Id have Paul back as well. think he struggled a wee bit at home due to his engines but had just hit form when he suffered a really bad injury. From what I could see he is also a good team man. In the end it will be decided by the points limit but if it is 42 or 42.50, Paul to me would be a no brainer.

    Championship Grand Final 2019

    I can't help thinking Perks is a classic example of a rider getting better and better with the more rides he gets. For him riding for 3 teams has worked really well. In other cases some riders are only getting 3 rides a week and are unable to improve and or afford to continue riding. Well done Mr Perks you have shown others it can be done.
