    Its fairly simple why these matches have to be run. And its all mathematical. Teams and riders averages will be lop sided and potentially unfair if the same number of matches isn't run. Of course this doesn't stop averages being lop sided when a particular riders season is finished early due to injury or being sacked! The simple truth is that clubs should finish before the cut off date and except in exceptional circumstances there is no excuse for not doing so. People have suggested that if a club does not complete a fixture then the points should go to the other club. I think this would be unfair particularly if a club got points at a club that they would, in normal circumstances, not have a hope of getting. There are two paths that I can see that may be fairer. The most obvious one being if a club does not complete its fixtures then ALL fixtures at that club should be expunged from the final reckoning. This would be the fairest way but I don't think that people would like it. Particularly if at a club that all of a sudden goes for fourth to fifth place. Perhaps then the best way forward would be for the offending club to have points deducted. Although that wouldnt have troubled Buxton overmuch this year! For gods sake get your flipping fixtures in!!!!!!

    I think Tom Bacon would have the beating off him if HE was fit

    He was not able to post in the brumies site as his account was suspended. He has also apologised to me personally via pm on this site. Havent been able to reply yet.

    Have to respectfully disagree. If there is someone better than Greenwood available, then by all means sign him. (Incidentally when is the cut off for making signings?) But Danyon is fourth in the averages which means only one of our top three (Leon Flint.) can take his ride with the rest being shared our between Walker and the reserves. I would suggest that Dan Greenwood would score higher than them. It would be unfair to expect him to score as high as Danyon. We're stuck between a rock and a hard place But, to be honest, none of this is important. Danyon is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and I am devestated for him. Get well soon mate.

    Kent v Brummies NL Mon 27th Aug

    Looking forward to this one. It will be my first visit to Kent as their start time has always prevented me from making the journey. However its BH so no excuses for not going. Hoping there will be enough Brummie fans in attendance to make some noise. I really feel we can get something out of this, even a consolation point would be usefull at this point. Should be fun trying at any rate. See you there?

    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.)

    Buxton v Brummies NT Sun 8th July

    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.

    Buxton v Brummies NT Sun 8th July

    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.
