    A breach of club discipline would in most cases result in this happening with any promotion regardless of who was or wasn't available

    Maybe along the lines of due to a breach of club discipline it is regrettable we have had to dispense with the services of Joe Lawler. The club have moved swiftly to gain the signing of Kyle Bickley as his replacement . I understand the club not wishing to air it's dirty washing in public , but likewise being vague with it's statement fuelled the ability to jump to the wrong conclusions

    Now that the full story has come out , i must apologize for my initial reaction which was arrived at due to my cynical attitude I have about speedway these says . The whole thing is unfortunate , Joe is a teenager and teenagers are not the most predictable of individuals and i hope he learns from this big mistake he has made . But i feel the news could have been announced better by my club . The unforseen circumstances bollocks that was trotted out only served to fuel the belief that Kyle Bickley was always going to replace one of the reserves once Workington shut . Hope this is the last unsavoury incident we have to deal with and we can now settle down to enjoy the coming season .

    I'm disappointed and dismayed that my club would do this to young Joe . I don't blame Kyle Bickley , he has to look out for his own interests , but to treat a young rider trying to make his way in the sport , the way it's been done to Joe Lawler , like that is disgusting . At least give the reserves at least a month to prove that they are worth perservering with , then if a change needs to be made then fine, but to take away Joe's team place before a wheel has been turned in anger is just wrong .

    We were on our knees not so long ago and probably wouldn't be here now without the Facennas buying the club . But you're right , losing that kind of money isn't sustainable and if our owners decided to cut their losses , that would be it because nobody could afford to buy them out given the money they've spent on the stadium

    Only thing about them is that their reserves look as weak as ours , but i agree their top 5 , assuming Harris doesnt ride their track the way he did at the Pairs , look impressive

    Comical thing is , Craig Cook apart , our side doesn't exactly appear to be the Harlem Globetrotters of the Championship. There are stronger looking teams out there than what we appear to be . Sheffield and Edinburgh certainly do . Have they threatened speedway Armageddon assembling their septets ?

    Time to put this nonsense to bed . Does it really matter what other fans think of our club or it's custodians . We're the ones turning up for home meetings and the occasional away ones , not them . If we're hated , so be it , i wont lose any sleep over it .

    Think in all probability Cook was signed before we got hit with this ridiculous points limit . No chance of winning anything with two 2 pointers at reserve . Echos of Blackman and Campbell at the start of 2004 . I hope i'm wrong , but it looks a bit of a botched team building job . Yes it's nice to have Cook , but he cant win meetings on his own
  12. Paulco

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Going to be two , two pointers at reserve in all likelihood . So unless we stumble onto a gem it's unlikely Sarjeant will be back at reserve , even with no increase in his average . Personally i would have went for Greaves , we never seen what he could bring to the team before injury struck , but he had impressed round Ashfield previously , riding against us .
  13. Paulco

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Exactly . Starting at reserve last year should have enabled him to up his average quite a bit , that never happened and even less chance of it happening starting in the main body of the team , even in a watered down league .

    Speedway and double standards , well who'd have thought it haha

    Dont think there is , and you cant justify dropping the points limit to 38 and then increase the admission price

    Is there a need for the den to be open on non speedway days anyway ?

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    With the league dummed down to a 38 point limit league , there will be no shortage of available number 1 candidates . Morris , Richard Lawson, Ricky Wells , Sam Masters , Richie Worrall , Lasse Bjerre to name but a few .

    That you just realising how corrupt speedway is ? By the way , i'm on the nightshift , what's your reason for being on here at this ungodly hour lol Seriously John , take a step back . Speedway is still a fantastic spectacle to be enjoyed if you can ignore the rule bending , oneupmanship and the politics that goes on behind the scenes . 4 brave rides going at it inches apart ( well on some tracks ) , that's all you need .

    Must have been down to the rider himself , maybe the travelling got too much . Because surely we should have persevered with him all things being equal .

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    We'll see , but most teams seem to be going down the long tail route this season as building to 38 points takes it's toll

    Somerset 2019

    I'm the same mate . The ridiculous points limit doesnt fill me with excitement . Even worse for you guys after being upstairs for a couple of seasons . Still it means i get to see my team racing at one of my favourite venues again , rather than make the pilgrimage as a neutral as i have done the past two years .

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Well Harris is fixed up near Burnham on Sea and it wouldnt surprise me in the slightest if we went down the Cook and the dancing 4 pointers road . So if that was the intention it hasnt really worked .

    Away from the nonsense for a minute or two . Other clubs are announcing signings , but nothing other than silence from the hallowed halls of Ashfield . I must confess that the ridiculous points limit doesnt fill me with enthusiasm for the new season and i worry about what will be served up in front of us because of that . The " i know something you dont know " mob will no doubt smugly post some cryptic bollocks about who we've got , happens every winter , but team building to 38 points must be a nightmare . If we have Cook it takes over 10 out of the 38 points . 6 riders for less than 28 points - seriously . We had that in the 80's with Steve Lawson and 6 of his mates keeping him company in the pits , it didnt work then and Cook cant win meetings on his own . Rumours on here from Workington alleging underhand tactics to get one of their riders with Rasmus Jensen seemingly fitting the bill ........really ? Ok he done well during Worky's glory charge in October , but he's never impressed me round Ashfield in the past - Kid Jensen would have been more competative . I'd have the engine room of last season , namely Vissing , Starke and Kerr back again , and play the numbers game from there , such as it is .
