    Pretty much the same for me. The recent rewind meetings have done little to rekindle any enthusiasm.

    What a condescending and rude comment to make. I cant make it to Scunny tomorrow. So by your definition, I am not a real fan? Ive been a supporter for 64 years. Nice to know I dont matter.

    I certainly agree with that. Last season, he rode in the NICE 2v Challenge on the IOW. Was happy to chat almost anytime, apart from when fitting the engine. After winning the meeting, he stood and chatted for a good 15 minutes about the differences of how the engines compared. He was smiling all day too. I like him a lot.

    Ive seen both brothers regularly since they started at Newcastle. Ive always thought that Steve would be the better of the two Richie did a good job until his injury last season. I am confident that Steve will have an even better season this time round. No worries about Steve for me.

    Dont worry about it. Go back to 1988. We had our team signed and sealed. Yet two unknown Aussies came over to try out for Poole. One was Mick Powell. Never signed for us but had an excellent career at Glasgow, etc. The other was Craig Boyce. Went on to become the clubs top points scorer in our history. Just because we may not have heard of them as such, doesnt mean they are automatically going to be poor. You just never know. Remain optimistic.

    Ive seen List and Rew ride on the Continent.Both stylish and controlled. Thought Scunnys treatment of List last season was extremely harsh. Never gave him time to settle. I think Rew will be the better of the two. Exciting times if it is either or both of them. Not seen Keleher, but Rod Colquhoun speaks very highly of him.

    Not at all happy with Havelock coming in. Never liked him as a rider and even less respect as a person.

    His Dad! Michael Lee famously built a motor for him. All they had to do was adjust timings etc, as normal. His Dad decided to strip the engine down and put it back HIS way. The results told you all you needed to know.

    I rate him too. Very good rider and great with the fans. If he fits the averages,then yes please.

    I like what I see of our team so far. My wish for Christmas would be to sign Alfie Bowtell. I like him a lot. He does fall often, but that is because he tries too much at times. With a 3.10 average, I hope we can fit him in.

    Oh dear, not impressed at all.
  13. Jedd List is not riding. Kyle Bickley replaces him.
  14. Some close racing at times. The Thompson boys showing their track knowledge and were good to watch. Ht5 they, along with Palin, were excellent. Very close for all 4 laps. Good race. Nasty tangle between Perks and Palin in Ht13. Hope he is ok. One big hole on entrance to turn one caused a fair few problems, the two holes on bend3 throwing riders all over the place. What I really dont get is why it was called off. Hume said over the mic that the rain was causing visibility problems and the track was very slippery. Yet at the Kent v Colts Play off the other week, the meeting started in far worse conditions and ran right through. Thankfully, the meeting at Belle Vue tomorrow is off anyway. Heard last night that Tuesday was the only available date to run this meeting.
  15. Going to the First leg of this Final. Weather not looking too good for Friday, so will decide late Thursday if I travel. Supporting the Colts, of course.
