    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Are there really no other options out there? He only averaged 2 points a meeting earlier in the year. I know the season is coming to the end but still we could get someone in with a view to next season.

    Edinburgh vs Birmingham 23/8

    Very disappointed with the side we have. I know Butcher will try his best but its not fair on the lad and his confidence when hes only a 1.5 NL rider. Thomsen only averaged about 2 earlier in the season, so dont understand why hes been bought back if im honest. Bloody hope Garrity rides!! I know this season is a learning curve but we need to be more competitive at this level next year ( that's if we dont drop back down), at home we have at times but too many times away from home we have had a well below par side.

    Birmingham v Somerset

    It wasnt a bad meeting, track was better and good to see a decent crowd in after they did alot of promoting over the recent days. There were loads of kids in which is the generation we need but not sure about the whistles they give to them. Gets a bit annoying after a while. Garrity after a slow start was an absolute joy to watch, no doubt he will prove to a good signing. Yes hes wild but hes a match winner and will be popular with the fans. Aarnio for me has been a poor signing. He doesn't look like a heat leader which is a shame as with Adam out , we need all riders to step up. I simply dont understand why we didnt use the tactical sub in Heat 10?. I would have thought Garrity would have had a decent chance of beating Grobauer and Covatti and partnering Worrall to a 5-1. It would have been better to have Worrall/Garrity in Heat 10, Aarnio/Shanes in Heat 11 and Garrity/Wallinger in Heat 12. It then would have meant we could swap Wallinger for Shanes in Heat 14. A shame we have no home match next week when its the school holidays but hopefully we can bounce back and start winning our home matches next month.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Its a no brainer in my opinion to make a change for Ashley if hes gonna be out for much longer. I feel for him as he was just coming into form when he had the crash but its coming up to the transfer deadline and a very busy time for the Brummies. Now Aarnio is back, I think rider replacement or a guest makes us a lot weaker. Happy with Garrity. I would have changed Agertoft rather than Hume, as I don't think there's much between them. Agertoft if he gates looks quick but hasnt really scored well yet, he may come good when he drops at reserve. Wallinger isn't a bad signing.

    Redcar v Birmingham - 19/07

    I love Paco, its been great to see him doing well this season and proving people wrong who wrote him off before he rode for us. His passion and enthusiasm really makes him a popular rider with brummies fans and tbh there shouldnt even be a vote for rider of the year. He wins hands down. All in all a good effort from the brummies with such a patched up side, (again) thanks to Ty and Ulrich for their performances. Good Luck to Redcar, they have a good side with the changes they made.

    Brummies v Bears

    Its gonna be tough without a doubt, its frustrating that Morris and Aarnio are missing again. It makes us so much weaker not having Morris given he was scoring double figures just before he got injured. We need both back soon or the Brummies management need to decide whether to continue with a weaker side or look at short term replacements. August is a busy month and in an ideal world we need a full strength side. If we had a full side I think we would beat Redcar but its gonna be tough now although Ayres is a good guest. Is Ellis riding Wednesday?
  7. I was just amazed we got near to 30 points so all in all I cant fault any Brummies rider last night. Im not sure why Paco is apologising for last night, he doesnt need to as hes had a good season and a real fans favourite at Perry Barr. There are other people that should come out and explain the circumstances as to why that team went to Glasgow last night.
  8. If Adam had this booked before joining the Brummies then fair enough as you say but the club should have looked at all his commitments prior to signing him. Its really poor to just come out with 'personal reasons' which was stated prior to him racing for Swindon last night, wouldnt he have missed that meeting for personal reasons aswell!! Its clearly in my eyes the club did not realise he was missing tonight until recently and are trying to cover their backs. I hate to be constantly negative about the club but situations like this are poor. Im sure all the Brummies riders tonight will try their best, but its so disappointing for the sport that a meeting like this is taking place. What about any Brummies fans that have spent alot of money, maybe hundreds on travel, hotels and then look at side we are taking there. What about the Glasgow fans that are spending £20 plus on admission/programme, food/drink etc to see what is going to be a heavily one sided match. Its not good.

    I'm delighted to see Danyon Hume back in Brummies colours, hes played such an important part in our NL seasons and hes an out and out trier. I think he can do a good job in the championship, hes shown that already when he rode for Ipswich. Im not sure about the Agertoft signing if im honest. I think its a massive gamble considering already this season the signing of Thomsen didnt work. At P+P day Agertoft did impress me and looked better than Thomsen so we will see if can look as fast in meetings. At least now we have strong reserves in Ashley Morris and Danyon Hume so theres always the option of using them more if he finds it tough. Good luck to him and I hope he does do well.
  10. You got to love James Shanes

    I should hope so Steve, shame us fans dont know anything yet.

    Given its less than 24 hours to this meeting, its all very quiet on the Brummies Social media and nothing on the website. I wouldn't be surprised if we pull out, we cant field 4 riders and obviously there's very limited guest options that wouldnt make us weaker.
  13. That tonight for me was one of the most enjoyable meetings ive seen at Perry Barr in some time, absolutely fair to both teams for entertainment that was served up. Its easy for people to just not bother coming when they see half a Brummies side but really you missed a really good match and full commitment from our guest riders. The track was superb after all the rain we have had, in the past 9 days or so, so credit to the track staff, very quick race times proved that. Charles Wright showed why hes one of the best riders in the league and credit to him for his efforts, scored what Ellis would have. Connor Coles battled and did a solid job, 2 pts when hes a 2pt rider is job done. The performance from Broc Nichol was something else!, absolutely fully committed to an extent wheres hes bouncing off the fence in one race. A joy to watch and he for me he is the type of rider you pay £16.50 every week to watch. Shame he isnt a Brummies rider.. Considering Shanes had a big crash at the weekend as well, he more than did a good job. Its just a pity he cant gate well otherwise he would be a top rider at this level, he has the effort and speed. I don't think Castagna will be push over in the main body, not at home anyway. Its amazing we have Ashley Morris now at reserve (when fit) when you consider he beat Danny King and Kyle Howarth last match and his scores in recent meetings for us, strength in depth! Newcastle are not a bad side, a few of their riders such as Bjerre and Jorgensen didnt have a great night overall but Worrall and Weathers did. Clegg came alive after 2 poor rides but the Diamonds struggled at reserve. Safe journey to the fans that made the trip. Hope Rerun Productions/SpeedwayGB upload a few clips from this meeting preferably Heat 6 and/or Heat 12.

    The Travelodge hotel is literally just off the Aldridge Road on Tameside Way next to the Trust Ford Dealership. I stayed in this hotel when we had our bathroom done, it was fairly new when we stayed, just did the job. Theres parking at the hotel which is sheltered, so your car feels more secure. Must also say theres a cafe right next door called the Lodge cafe which has a good reputation locally ( 25 reviews of 4.6/5 on Google). As others have said its within walking distance of stadium, turn left at Wickes then a 10/15 min walk down a straight road you cant miss the stadium. Finally ive got to mention if you turn right as you come out of Tameside way/Aldridge Road and walk past Perry Park and the motorway bridge you have the Boars Head which does a World Food buffet, its superb the times ive been. Even the Brummies team went there after Press and Practice this season!
