    Peterborough Panthers 2021

    Latest news on ET website is No Iversen or Tungate for Panthers in 2021 and each Premiership & Championship team will include one rider from a pool of youngsters introduced to each team presumably at no 7. The story is by Nigel Pearson.

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Knowing what Batchelor's like I suspect it was right the first time.

    BSPL AGM

    From the BSPA WEBSITE BRITISH Speedway clubs have today agreed a start date of early May for the 2021 season. Fixtures will be published next week for both the Premiership and Championship. Plans are in place for a new concept in both leagues with more details to follow. The plans have been made to adapt to the current situation regarding Polish restrictions on the amount of leagues riders can race in, plus the ongoing challenges presented by the pandemic. There is a clear pathway for the development of British Speedway and young British riders, not just in 2021 but in the years ahead. In addition, whilst there is disappointing news about losing Swindon and Somerset for 2021, these decisions have been made by these clubs to protect their futures from 2022 onwards. They will be welcomed back into the sport next year. Another club has expressed an interest in joining the Championship and this will be explored in due course. More details regarding the 2021 season will be revealed alongside our broadcast partners Eurosport in the coming days.

    Clear plastic envelopes shouldn’t dictate anything, that’s the stamps job. If the RM cannot cope with current demand it should take on more staff.

    It’s not a lot better complaining to RM, standard computer generated email in reply.

    Looking like non British riders are now an expensive option, especially for the Championship

    It was good Tim , another regular that’s always a good read.

    Mine arrived on time today and what a read it is. Some great stories this week, I particularly liked the Castagna, Tatum and Refs stories and the potted history of the KO Cup is an excellent series. The FIM supremo certainly had some choice words for the U.K. Promoters and to be fair a lot of what he said made sense.

    All I got was a computer generated general reply mentioning COVID problems. Their complaint system is utter rubbish a bit like their deliveries at the moment.

    I must be honest and say I have been tempted to try it, Phil have you ever thought of giving subscribers one or two free digitals to try it when renewing annual subscriptions. As an afterthought what percentage of subscribers are digital.

    I think their is enough comment to suggest local sorting offices are holding back magazines when they are under pressure with big demand, our postmen mentioned that that other weekly magazines were at least two days late this week. What makes it worse is the only thing my Postman delivered today was four pieces of junk mail.

    It’s pretty bad in the Peterborough area, myself and several local friends are all still waiting for this weeks copy, which considering we are about 10-15 miles away from the printers just shows how hopeless RM is.

    Mine has been back to its regular Thursday for a few weeks now, some great stories in recent weeks.

    The incident was on August 15th 2005, the star match report mentions it following Panthers 46-44 win at Poole on the night.

    It was JBJ just not in 2007, more likely 2006 when he scored 10 in a Panthers win at Wimborne Road.

    11th July 2007 was Poole v Peterborough, JBJ wasn’t in either team .

    JBJ didn’t ride for Panthers in 2007

    Hopefully, and with a better choice of when to run it we might well not get the complete farce tonight’s match was. That meeting was a dreadful advert for the sport and should never have started.

    I think it’s clear some RM sorting offices work differently to others judging by the comments on this thread.

    Must be honest the post about the postman telling one of his customers they hold the magazines back sounded a bit too close to the truth, for years mine has been Thursday pretty much for years, this year it’s been all over the place, Friday Saturday and even a Monday. I have thought about a digital copy but I do like a printed version.

    Last two weeks my issue has arrived with Friday’s post, it’s irritating especially as I only live 15 miles away from where it’s printed. Its very notably got less reliable since plastic wrapped as opposed to a plain brown envelope.

    How Many Of Us Are Losing Interest.?

    I think a lot of fans would pay to watch a streaming meeting of their team at an away venue, I certainly would but would it be viable to set up and stream it at a reasonable cost. I don’t suppose they will know until they try it but recent events seems to suggest it’s a possibility, it would be interesting to know the figures for the recent matches but of course I don’t expect them to be made public.

    I think that makes a lot more sense, although it does again favour the stronger nations.
