  1. How long has Cook been an Ace? How long has Cook been a Tiger? Who owns Cooks contract?

    The 2 minute Polish system

    That's just ridiculous!!! Have you seen the price of clocks these days!!!

    Flying laps.

    That is, after all, what people go to Speedway to see... a man driving around in a tractor
  4. same old, same old it's funny because the word sorry goes a long way
  5. If I had a pound for every time I've heard the phrase "totally beyond our control" trotted out by promoters of Speedway I'd be a very very rich man It's a shame that the Chariman of the BSPA wasn't overseeing the track prep for British Speedway's showpiece event of the week then (Cardiff being last week)
  6. So... We can't run speedway in the rain, snow, ice, fog and now when it's hot! I wonder when they can run it?

    Unsatisfactory starts

    I was thinking about this the other day and thinking that we may have gotten a bit too uptight about the starting process. So what if James Sarjeant traps ahead of NKI or Doyle surely it would be good to watch NKI or Doyle trying to get by Sarj. I remember Jason Gage beating Hans Nielsen at the EoES, he brought the house down and I also remember Andy Meredith nearly beating Hans at Cov when Nielsen rode for Oxford!

    I thought yesterday's British GP was the best I've been to (and I've been to them all), the on track action was top notch. I don't think the parade worked though, I had absolutely no idea where I was supposed to be looking, couldn't hear any of the announcements, there were no rider interviews and the replays of the crashes were few and far between. And the hush that came over the stadium when Doyley was down was reminiscent of Bradford 1989, somebody could have said something or played some low volume music or something! That said I took a friend and his lad down with me who'd only been to Speedway with me twice before a number of years back and they both said they had a cracking day out, which proves Speedway can attract new people. I had no hesitation taking them to a GP for £19... a League match at Leicester though? Forget it

    OK we get it, you're smelly and poor, get over it... move on
  11. Following on from a post I made in another thread I thought this was quite interesting... if you find this kind of thing interesting https://britainfromabove.org.uk/cy/groups/speedway-tracks-uk

    maybe crap was a bit harsh, Bomber used to be world class but that was 10 years ago and I still believe Cookie can be world class, though time is not on his side. To expect to make a world class living without world class performances is, frankly, pie in the sky, especially in a profession where everybody can actually see how good you are week in week out, there's no hiding place. I'm all for believing in yourself but after 10 years of year on year decline sometimes you need a reality check

    Yes... but the UK was grim in the 70's

    Perhaps Cook and Harris can't make it pay because they are crap? Big fishes in a small pond and in Harris's case a small fish in a small pond... don't get me wrong as a Cov fan I think Bomber is a legend but he has clearly been delusional in the last 5 or 6 years thinking he's world class and talking the talk without ever walking the walk. Similar for Cook... if he was as good as he thought he was he'd be riding regularly in Poland or even Sweden
