    Remember Blackbird beating him in the helmet he did beat him three times ??. I have a picture of Hans/Carl talking afterwards laughing and joking no bitterness from Hans he took defeat on the chin.

    Good point Lion, Steve Roberts could probably tell us the track certainly got better in my view.My first visit there was in the 1973 Supporters club trophy and then it looked a little run down but in the Nielsen era when the track was good with the new restaurant open it was a terrific night out.Then apart from Wimbledon which had an aura about it Oxford with that new restaurant was probably one of the most comfortable nights out at a league meeting.

    From my memory Gundersen, Knudsen, Thorp, Blackbird,Shirra/Holloway, Ermolenko,were amongst only a few who beat him on merit at Cowley.His battles with Erik and Tommy were pretty special when prepared right Cowley was a half decent racetrack was never really a fan of it up until about 1984.

    Wimbledon Memories

    Salomonson, Hines, Johns, Muts, were all half decent but could not Quite push on in there careers.Johns to be fair had a couple of good seasons figures wise but two riders who i felt given time could of been pretty decent were Brad Oxley and Anders Erickson.

    Wimbledon Memories

    Tatum, Doncaster, Screen, ,Loram , Graves changed the way a little by going full time into a very tough BL. Graves is one that puzzles me he was pretty talented never really stepped up Eccles at Belle Vue was another without sustaining injury he would of been a regular at BL level.

    Wimbledon Memories

    Brendan Stilleto, Brewer, Pawson, Knowler, P.Johns, were riders who come to mind who never really made the breakthrough.Moggo ( Mogridge) did really well went on and had a decent career he was great value gave everything..

    Pinny how was Craig Watson as a Newport rider? i loved watching him ride along with Smart, Puk, Atkin they were all great value.

    I first see Crump ride in 1992 for Peterborough at the County Ground and he scored three points.I am sure he came in on a 2.00 point average not sure ????remember him as a young un being with his dad at Swindon and he also did a few laps there to.Never in my wildest dreams did i think he would end up being better than his dad as for me personally his dad was a real legend a world class rider.Jason along with Nielsen, Mauger, Briggs, Olsen, Lee, Michanek, Gollob, are some of the best i have ever seen he has to be up there with the all time greats.His battles with Adams at the Abbey were superb two great riders who had total respect and trust in each other.
  12. There are certain riders over the years who did not get the credit and reconignition there racing ability deserved.I know these riders have there supporters and to be honest there are endless riders you could choose from five for me who personally spring to mind are 1./Phil Crump 2./ Martin Ashby 3./ John Boulger 4./ Bernie Persson 5./ Bobby Schwartz.All these riders within speedway circles were all known to be terrific riders but i feel when you look at what they actually achieved i just feel they were better than that.

    In every way any respect i had for you Speedway wise has totally gone BULLY comes to mind.You look for the usual suspects to back you up but my back up is people who rarely come on here yet we we talk Speedway and get on.Norbold i will exclude and i have every respect for that man every respect you Chunky if i said it was Black you would say it was White.

    But Norbold what did i say wrong ??? to actually say Jansson who was 24 when he died in 76 would of been around when Nielsen Gundersen.Sanders.Lee, Carter in 1982? I never made a stupid statement , Jansson i think?.he would of been around.Chunky is a liar or he is to proud to backtrack not that i care one way or another.

    All you said was that you see him win the Laurels ?? you are full of rubbish Chunky .Never said he had achieved out, your comments were up until 1976 he had not really achieved anything of note don't LIE you said it.

    I never said that Witcher all i said was Jansson who was 24 and was on the up would of Probably???? been around 1980 ( aged 28 with riders like Penhall, Lee, Carter, Sigalos, Sanders, nothing wrong with that at all surely.Not rocket science most people who i know within speedway better judges than you and i and certainty Chunky all have said Jansson was a class act .
  20. Sidney the robin

    You are a LIAR to even comment on it , you said in 1975/76 Jansson he had not achieved anything of note you give me his results forgetting ( the pairs with Anders) winning the Southern English Championship. the Laurels and being holder of the golden helmet think again Chunky.

    You did Chunky you did not READ the post properly.To say Jansson would NOT of been a threat between 1976/84 for me is more controversial than sitting on the fence like me and saying he would of been.People i respect big time in speedway none of them had a doubt Tommy would of been competitive you HAVE you said so you told me his results and who he beat in a way that belittled him.On this forum you go after me and Gustix at every opportunity don't know why ???? funny you never target other members not that i give a flying f... what you think.

    I don't need a breath just love reading good old Chunky and that gives me a good old gee up.
  23. Sidney the robin

    Going by your memory of Tommy Jansson in 75/76 he was a complete novice nowhere near world class . Ask Anders if he was world class or not.

    Not name calling at all, give you a chance to be adult about stuff you decided to be be complete tool.
