  1. To be 'totally honest', I tried blocking someone before, but it didn't work, every time somebody quoted his drivel it appeared anyway...
  2. Over and over and over again...we are bored now of your opinion, once said it created mild interest...now it is mind numbing in its repetition,!
  3. I thought our track team retired after the last match of the season, we were certainly told that and they went round on the truck to receive the crowds appreciation for their hard work, mind you things could be different now Ged and Carl have returned.
  4. Correct ! Really looking forward now to the new season, especially on a Thursday night under spotlights, for me that has always been the way Speedway should be, it adds so much to the atmosphere.
  5. I actually hoped when it was announced we had got a new owner, it would be someone new, in it at least for two or three years if not for the long term, now we seem to have a cobbled together management team, that on the face of it in previous years didn't even appear to like each other....one of whom, also stated he didn't want to run the club because of travelling ,family and business commitments…... fair enough, we are saved yet again, we could have gone the way of many other tracks and closed. But it would be really nice to go into the winter, just once, able to look forward without all these doubts. I have spoken to a few fans this week, like me they seem to be losing their enthusiasm ...perhaps if we started announcing a couple of riders it might make peoples enthusiasm return....or not depending on who they are!
  6. Can we have Tom' Bacon' then?
  7. I was at the meeting as a neutral, we had been to the coast for the day and decided to catch the meeting on the way home. Firstly can I send my best wishes to both riders, it was obvious to all how serious it was .I am sure everybody expected a long delay, and most were accepting of this. We had a bit of a drive home and it was turning cold, also as we had been out all day, reluctantly at 9.30p.m we decided to start making our way out to the car, at roughly 9.45p.m, we heard the engines restart and the announcer say, the ambulance was on its way back and the meeting would restart shortly. Assuming the ambulance was only coming from Queen Elizabeth Hospital, we assumed by the time we had made our way back to the grandstand, it would have arrived and the meeting would continue, so we went back, only for the engines to stop again. So we waited, and eventually racing started again at 10.20 p.m, how I wish we had gone home. I think everybody had lost heart in the meeting even before the second accident, the track conditions had changed,and the riders must also have been cold, Speedway fans must be the most patient of any sports fans in the country but I personally think the decent thing to have done would have been to call the meeting off well before the restart. I don't condone the heckling at all but think Mr Chapman should have risen above it and continued with his explanation of circumstances to all the fans that had stopped. He had the microphone after all, so he had the upper hand. I sincerely hope both riders make speedy and full recoveries, if nothing else I am sure that is something we can all agree on!
  8. Surely, even Chapman couldn't be so vindictive as to bring in a rule that would stop a former British Champion and long time servant to British Speedway riding in the Championship... Could he ??
  9. If everybody had the same attitude and commitment to Speedway as Bomber, we wouldn't be in the sorry mess we are in now. Good luck to him where ever he rides and congratulations to the team that signs him.
  10. The statement relating to hearing on November 7th was on that link, I read it. Now it has been removed, how strange. Edited....now copied to forum, thought I had dreamt it four a minute.

    I don't condone Holdergate, but Buster needs to look at his own actions. This is only my opinion, but the awful team he took to Leicester thus cheating the fans, was caused by his spite sackings of his team after the dead line, so it is also bringing the sport into disrepute. I do not know enough about the situation that caused the sackings,as I wasn't there that night,but he handled the situation appallingly.
