    Cradley v Mildenhall

    Very well said James !...totally agree

    Cradley v Mildenhall

    We agree !...the Forum is a lovely place, but Its very easy to criticise from the comfort of a keyboard, which is why I feel strongly enough to defend people who stake their own money, not to mention time, and whether you agree with their management style or not have given us one of the most successful teams in Years Maybe if you were putting your money on the table you might get hot under the collar from time to time

    Cradley v Mildenhall

    I think your criticism with your words "professionalism" hits the nail on the head...because the National League is Not "professional" its all amateur, but in any case I would much rather see a bit of emotion and will to win, rather then someone "biting their lip", to me it just shows he cares....but hey you are entitled to your opinion. Don't forget he has to hold down a full time job as well as running a speedway club and I for one appreciate it, we could have easily lost speedway altogether if it wasn't for all their efforts. Whatever his style you can't knock his results !

    Cradley v Mildenhall

    Speaking for myself (and all the supporters I know in our bit of the stands) we all love Kevin and alot of his stances on situations are only because he has a passion for our Team and our sport. We have alot to be thankful to him for, making our speedway at West Row and hearing these views are dissapointing. (Especially from a so called Mild. supporter !) Alot of people say similar things about Danny Ayres but to us it just shows his will to win, and ok they both wear their hearts on their sleeves, but don't forget its also entertainment ...we go there to be entertained don't we ? As for Cradley, I'm a mildenhall fan but I don't want to see Cradley stop running, all we ask is when the powers that be make the rules for guest teams they make sure its fair for the normal teams as far as team selections are concerned. The same rules should apply to everyone...

    Witches v Glasgow 16/08/2018

    Bit harsh Jenga....if you had been there you would have known it was Mostly Glasgow that refused...their riders didn't even get dressed...the Witches (and Rory) did.

    Witches v Glasgow 16/08/2018

    ....Just got my management head on here, if my business relied on the weather, surely you would be looking very closely at the forecasts and they were all "cast iron" it would be raining all morning and clearing mid afternoon, with a clear evening. SO, one of two things should have happened in my mind, either call it off early OR arrange a whole load of extra staff and vehicles to transform the track in the 4-5 hour window they knew they would have. The only other option would have been covers, because they knew it would be clear in the evening...why not get some ? Speedway is only going to suffer if the travelling public and customers get let down. It did seem to me though watching closely that certain riders were influencing the rest. Another thing I would have done, was clear all the riders and mechanics from the outer track until the work was done, they kept hanging over the boards and making comments and the vehicles were having trouble getting through, it was really un-professional.

    Peterborough v Ipswich Sunday 5th August

    ...a little give away is the red tops with "Panthers" written accross the top....I also recognise quite a few, guess I've been a supporter for too long

    Peterborough v Ipswich Sunday 5th August

    Good match and really enjoyed the close racing, but the reserve tally says it all. Ippo did it with a six man team, just imagine if Drew had been available....he would have just needed one point ! Looking at the gate I recognised loads of Mildenhall supporters (they weren't at home today), and when I'm at Mildenhall I usually see loads of Peterborough supporters... come on Peterborough promoters wake up, ride at a different time than your neighbours and you'll both get more through the gate.

    Colts v Mildenhall

    Its guys like him that are keeping speedway alive with a will to win and not afraid to show it....sour grapes me thinks

    Eagles v Brummies 30th JUNE NL

    having watched eagles for nearly twenty years and now fen tigers for over ten I can honestly say there are plenty of passing lines at mildy whereas eastbourne is a gate and go with not so many opportunities and very tricky to ride being so tight...so I don't think you'll win that argument rich ! very tricky to beat Eastbourne on an aggregate basis, as the record shows

    Eagles v Brummies 30th JUNE NL

    Should be a real close one but you never know with Eastbournes trick track

    Ipswich v Edinburgh 21 6 18

    Everyone I spoke to on the start line did, we thought the ref might have got it wrong but she was spot on on that one
  14. AntiqueSteve

    Ipswich v Edinburgh 21 6 18

    Yes Connor def. did it...we are right on the tapes and we knew he did it by about quarter of a wheel on the line By the way....after Campton got a flyer on his first ride we watched him closely and he let his clutch out twice more before the tapes rose, he was lucky to miss the tapes and the referee didn't seem to care, suppose its these latest rules of lettin em go ?
  15. Hope they don't get in each others way riding the outside line
