    Never thought he would go in the first instance let alone now... unless there is an injury before the cut off date for changes Newcadtle wont be switching anyone else out... Regards THJ

    Is it not 2.43 as a Brit would get the 2.5% rebate... not that it would make much difference as it would have to be a Brit with an average that low... Regards THJ
  3. Considering I was standing in front of Paulco having a pint with him (that he bought by the way!!!) I had exactly the same view as him and can't remember seeing you there HT but never mind... also Paulco stated Clegg touched the tapes not broke them... Clegg was the one moving before the start and the instigator of what followed... I think Mick Bates got both decisions spot on with the Clegg warning and all 4 back as his jump pulled everyone else forward and he (Clegg) didnt break the tapes and the Starke warning too was correct IMO by not stopping the Starke race as he had penalised himself by jumping (twitching) stopping and missing the start ending up at the back. Only if the jump gains an advantage should the race be pulled back... and to my mind that would be if the offender ended up in front of an opposing rider... I can't comment on the Redcar meeting and Graeme Hunters performance but I would have Mick Bates referee all my meetings if it were possible he is definitey one of the best in the country as far as I am concered Regards THJ
  4. Honestly Ya both wrong (IMHO) I stand on the tapes line and Clegg moved first and Bickley went through them... Mick Bates the Referee tonight got it spot on... all four back and a warning for Clegg to sit still... Clegg was correctly penalised and Bickley done nothing wrong although he broke the tapes... Regards THJ BTW it was the same when Starke moved in a later race but didn't touch the tapes but disadvantaged himself at the start by leaving the blocks in last position and Ref Bates let it go... Good refereeing.. Regards THJ

    Honestly No idea... I think you have interpreted it correctly though... had a good craic with a few Edinburgh riders in the bar after the meeting at Brough and they are all aware of the situation (and knew about the changes before they were made public) and they have been told there will be further changes... could be a bluff to spur them on or a guenine statement from the club of impending changes... however the ones I was talking to all thought it won't be them... haha... we will just have to wait and see if it's a management psychological tactic to gee some of the under performers on or a promise? Regards THJ

    Edinburgh 2019

    Craic tonight two out and two in with potentially another change early August... Edit... I wasn't going to be so rude as to name names however it would appear that Pienpeesman has let the cat out of the bag on the Edinburgh Newcastle thread Regards THJ
  10. Seen more passing tonight than just about every other meeting this season combined.... Really enjoyed the Leicester meeting but we lost that one... this on the other hand had an Edinburgh side trying their damdest to spoil the party vocal away fans cheering their team on and we still came out on top... Cracking meeting and satisfying result... Brilliant... top level entertainment... Regards THJ
