Complete shambles! 

Mr Rossiter, that's a great way of totally undermining one of your riders just prior to the Speedway Of Nations.  :o

So the manager has 3 riders in the team and cannot take time out to 'call' one of them to ascertain any potential issue's.

Pi$$ poor as usual

Doesn’t it state Rossiter and Cook talked on the phone Wednesday afternoon?

Craig is starting to sound like a broken record regarding moter issues over the last couple of season,his article in SS afew weeks ago  was full of praise of Mark Courtney as the man to sort all his issues! Not so far though.Do feel for him though,he seems to put a lot of pressure on himself though.

ps.

Another rider who should watch what he says on social media , by the looks of it.

Cook did well for Rybnik and in winning the GP qualifier so they are obviously getting somewhere with his engines.

Cook said nothing wrong on social media. He was letting fans know what had happened and was very magnanimous about it.

It did but Rossiter got the wrong end of the stick and then without clarifying the situation sacked Cook by text. As I said, you don't do that because you are under an impression you make sure you have the facts.

Glad you agree with me.And on the other bit I agree with you

Surely shows Rossiter isn’t fit to be team manager.Sounds more like he should join the BSF and start posting crap here like some others lol

COURTNEY not seen in either Warsaw or Prague. Craig lost the chance of some serious help at SGPs because Courtney's presence was supposed to be part of his deal with Rybnik.

Whether Cook had a doctors note or didn't his 7 day ban would run out on Monday 4th.     Why would that stop him riding the next day ?  

Some embarassing backtracking done here.   Captain Calamity (Rosco) has made a complete hash of his job.    My guess is he fancied the in form Lambert to ride as his first choice partner to Tai.   But the backlash has made him retrace his steps with a very smelly excuse.

If Cook feels the answer to any question is 'Mark Courtney'.

Then he has been asking himself the wrong questions.

 

But hey isn't it good to have a really professional outfit running the British team?

Cackhanded management and  adolescent press releases are just the thing we were looking for. Well done boys.

It was madness. Even if Cook had a doctor's note for 7 days it obviously didn't cover the meeting, which would mean we couldn't replace him. So why limit your chances by sacking Cook and leaving us with a 2 man team when Lambert as a reserve  can be used at any time. You do have to wonder about Rosco.

Funny, I don't seem to recall Max Fricke or Jason Crump have any problems when Mark worked for them?

Mark did work for Harris, but the term, you can't polish a turd comes to mind on that gig!

He cannot be replaced, unless ruled out by injury or illness.

Which was obvious all along, otherwise why was there a deadline for submitting teams?

That's the OFFICIAL account for the new GB set-up.

If only it were fake.

Bull rubbish is the reality I'm afraid.

Does seem like Rosoe's brain has a cog missing..jumping into a sticky mess without thinking first (or indeed checking properly).
