    Fair call. You could qualify for a reduction if your christian name begins with 'J' and your surname begins with a 'B'. I presume it's in the 2021 Uri Geller rule book ammendment?

    Quick Update...

    Not from my view point. By contributing one is always open to criticism. The maxim is attack the post not the poster. We can all be guilty of building a picture up of someone that we never know if its accurate or a mis judgement. Jab #1 can hurt... but I still want Jab #2 PS: I like Marmite!
  4. Can it be three meeting on the same night?

    Could Poole use Swindon''s executive back-straight facility on loan for the season?

    Its either allowed under the 'Catch A Falling Star' programme or his middle name is Josh and has a motel group named after him! More seriously the Newcastle promotion look to be fighting battles that if the team tries just as hard then the rewards will come.

    What do you folks think of Vera''s accent, given that Brenda Blethyn was born in Ramsgate, Kent?

    Especially as access to toilets will increase the footfall though the entrance and exits to these enclosed grandstands.

    Wolverhampton 2020

    From the Newcastle forum page: ..... we are unable to clarify is each individual stadiums capacity, but what we can let the fans know is the capacity as to which we were told Newcastle could have from the dates of May 17th to June 21st. We were advised by our local authority that they would let no more than a little over 200 fans outside and 75 indoors, which would have to be stretched between the hospitality suite and the main bar upstairs. Given the above what are the implications for Monmore Green during this period? Also the Monmore Greyhound website suggest paying public to be admitted to the afternoon meeting on 17th May. Does this have implications on running speedway on the same night?
  11. How long will it be before Chris Harris & Scott Nicholls have ridden / guested for all six teams?
  12. Whinging bunch of Muppets....... As Statler & Waldorf would say.. (quoting Dickens) ... Speedway: It sums up the best of times and the worst of times! For me, standing on the spectator side of the fence it's a sport. Go the other side and it's a business and sadly not the greatest of business models. It's like selling diesel cars, the car works well but it's future is less than bright

    Swindon Stadium

    I attended a Jim Wells / Jack Millen Training School at Stoke. I learnt how to drift wide and nudge riders into the fence, Signed: N Pedersen (Denmark).
  14. As an away supporter I've been disappointed that car park charges apply when it is then followed by a walk of the distance that is needed to get to the track. I'm currently able to do it and feel extremely disappointed for those less physically able who want their Speedway fix. This situation is greatly compounded by this current Blue Badge status. Having assisted friends who are wheelchair bound to attend speedway meetings I have been amazed by the differing facilities and support offered at speedway tracks over the years. For this to happen in 2021 is an embarrassment at both a Peterborough level and BSPL overall. A thumbs up to those who have kept this topic live. A thumbs down to those who can get it sorted and haven't.

    Swindon Stadium

    Is the completion date referring to housing or the stadium?
