    Birmingham Brummies v Cradley heathens

    Twas a great match with some fantastic racing. James Shanes in particular was spectacular. Also Tom Bacon gave lie to the myth that he cannot make a pass as he went around Ben Morley. I have heard of some misdemeanours from some Cradley fans and hope this isn't true. From my vantage point I wasn't aware of any. I wasn't expecting the match to be that close and thought we were dead and buried when 8 points behind. But the guys gave it everything and I am proud of each and every one of them. I am also proud of the support we gave them. Most (and I have to be honest and include myself) thought we were in for a hiding and thats never nice particularly when its the noisy neighbours inflicting the pain. But we turned up in numbers and never stopped supporting even when 8 points behind. For me thats what being a Brummie fan is all about and I know that the riders appreciated it. Now the next thing I have to say is well done to the Cradley Cubs. I wish you luck in the Final. However you really should have been able to put us to the sword last night and if you want to win the Cradley Benefit Trophy then you will need that luck if you ride like that again. I think last night we saw the difference between a real team and a team of mercenaries. I also wish Mildenhall luck as well. Obviously my hopes will lie with them. Now we have to concentrate on the League and fight as hard as we can for the play offs. Its going to be difficult but not impossible. We will need to make changes but I know that Lawrence Rodgers and the management are working day and night to make that happen. Watch this space. Looking forward to the Cradley Cubs Hammer meeting as well. I think Tom Bacon has a good chance in that.

    Brummies v Plymouth NL Wed 25th July

    I agree with every word. And would also like to point out that some also said that we should not have signed Tom Bacon at the cost of JPB. And yet Tom is now pretty near unbeatable at this level and arguably the best rider in the league.

    I think you owe the whole team an apology.

    Well he seems to have been able to attract James Shanes and JPB!!

    Some might say Buxton should be thrown out of the league for fielding such a week side. (Some might say it but not me. Just highlighting how ridiculous your original post was.)

    From Birmingham twitter feed. Buxton objected to the use of Gary Flint at reserve and despite having the relevant paperwork and confirmation from the BSPA office, he has now been blocked from riding this afternoon. We will be looking into this matter further. Sheldon Davies steps in.

    Thanks for that. We lost our team a few seasons ago. rye House Supporters have just lost theirs. Despite you ridiculous comment I hope you never have to experience it.

    Wasn't there so difficult to comment. However the Buxton side of the story seems to contain no facts and only accusations.

    RIP Ivan Mauger OBE

    I was very lucky to have spent five minutes talking to the great man on the centre green at Perry Barr during our return meeting (The Alan Hunt Memorial Meeting) in 2007. I was star struck and he was a lovely lovely man. Very sad today.

    Sick of listening to idiots (young and old) ranting and hijacking this thread. Here are some facts. Birmingham are being vilified (by some) for trying to use the rules in their favour. (Well DUH!) when no-one REALLY knows which rider they have been trying to sign, its all supposition. Even if it is the rider in question it would appear that they have only tried to stay within the rules. Something that many other sports would recognise. (Cricket and Rugby spring to mind.) Birmingham have been vilified for not bringing youngsters on. Well, I could of course point out that recently we had the youngest team in the league and (possibly) of all time. But that was under previous management so does not point to what the current management are doing. The current management have joined the MDL to bring on juniors and have stated that is a big aim of theirs. This despite the severe restrictions placed upon Birmingham via the planning permision. This should be applauded. But here is the crux of the matter for me. Why should any team in the NL (with the exception of Belle Vue) spend money and time and effort on developing ANY rider when they are not allowed to profit from such investment. Until the NL is allowed to gain assetts via such investment then they have NO incentive to develop any rider. Why spend that money and then let the boys from the higher leagues just step in and gain an assett without having developed that rider. Its wrong and does not help supporters to become emotionally attached to their team. The incentive is to sign Riders that have all ready developed and shown form at this level.

    Thanks for that. We are Birmningham centric its true, but we are doing our best to broaden the appeal. When we started we had one mic and lots of enthusiasm and 11 listeners! Things are a bit better than that now and we regularly get 7000 listeners from around the world. Talking of appeals. If anyone wants to get there phone out and record an interview with anyone from their respective clubs we are happy to put that out, time permitting.

    We have had supporters on before and happy to do so again. How about you Give us a B? As for a competition. You really need to stop reading my mind! Watch this space.
