  1. Yeh it was like he was almost scared to attempt to pass him.

    Berwick v Edinburgh Saturday 15 June, 7pm

    Arsenal have never been infamous for tiny allocations for away fans. There was a big hoo ha with prices a few years back but all premier away tickets for everyone is fixed at £30 now. I'm an away season ticket holder and arsenal actually subsidise it further too so we only get charged £26 per game. I havent had next seasons renewal as yet but i'm sure will be the same.

    I think your name was in a post i made referencing the hashtag on twitter thing rather than the bullying but maybe it was mentioned by someone else.. i assume it's somewhere on the early pages of this thread. The exif data thing you refer to is quite valid as i'm familiar with it - tho a bit sad that anyone should be checking out such intricate detail unless they were actually looking to cause an issue no ?

    Good on you to have taken the time to put that all down, however.. i think you will get asked a few questions here. From me tho, I'm astounded that you or whoever in your whatsapp group that was grizzling about "courtesy" has got the cheek to even expect that. With respect, i presume none of you are employees of the club, so perhaps your ire should have been aimed at your club who gave them access rather than having some kind of hissy fit which has turned into all this. The posts shared on twitter tonight allude to some of your group objecting to use of photoshop which is very different to your "courtesy" issue mentioned here. If they've genuinely got a problem with something that is used in almost every sphere of photography now, then you lot might aswell stick your gear on ebay as photo editing software isn't going anywhere is it ? Whatever the case may be, none of you, whatever your back-peddling and justification , comes out of this looking very good at all and i think you've all tarnished whatever reputations you had within the sport - which is a shame.
  6. Gosh this is a weird old thread - Gavan is a pillock among many things, but it's a strange old argument to only be allowed to have an opinion on a rider if you're prepared to say it to his face. Very strange. Is it the case then if we're scared to approach a rider to tell them, we just have to zip it and not say anything, and just not bother going to speedway again ? Fwiw, it is very cathartic to tell a rider your opinion of them to their face - see my profile pic of me and kelv for instance. He took it well. Lovely bloke.

    I agree the Eastbourne live report thing was good.. re the #amow thing on twitter, i assume some of the chaps behind it have deleted their messages as i can only find a handful of posts from Steve Dixon (who's on here isn't he?) and Ian Charles. Quite cringeworthy i think tho and very much stinks of veterans who have had their feathers ruffled by someone who is new on the block and is perhaps using methods and contacts that they themselves have never had the chance to exploit. All very sad.

    Most friendly, approachable, modest riders

    Jan Staechmann for me.. top bloke
  9. Yeh and i'm pretty sure he was David Steen's and a few others aswell.
  10. And a lifelong Reading supporter and resident unless i'm very much mistaken. Even tho we're not around in same way i very much doubt he follows another team.
  11. The ref was Dave Robinson wasn't it ?

    New Cross.

    I'm in Gustix territory a bit south of Peckham but totally agree. South of the river is either gentrified or the other extreme and is no place to grow old i think. I definitely plan to visit Eastbourne as much as i can this season. Only an hour and a bit down there from here i reckon and not been there in years.

    Bloody hell that's a name from the past. Remember you from the old yahoogroups email group Glenn. Glad you're still around. As other have said, the chaps at Travel Plus will be able to sort something for you and your group i'm sure. James is on here somewhere but cant remember his forum username.

    Eastbourne 2019

    Both - On the Racers facebook group a few days back they announced they are still riding at Eastbourne but as second halves on the days that the track is running various amateur days.. see text below.. "The stadium will be host to several Sunday amateur meetings and "Powerslide" days - where beginners can hire a bike and be supervised in their first laps of a track - and the Racers matches will take place after these sessions, running 2 matches on each occasion" Cheers
