Peterborough v Wolverhampton - Prem Thursday 11th July

Recommended Posts

I think that was a good performance from the Wolves - aside from the strength and/or performance of the Panthers.

Wolves looking very solid now as riders begin to hit form.

And the first thing we need to do is, bring Wells in for Bates,scored well again yesterday, Bates is all over the place , held  Tungate up last night ,2nd  bring in Guest for Hans, apart from Tungate and Wright rest are struggling

Agree with you about Wells Was crap at Kings Lynn but last night he was excellent as was Doolan  another rider who is often not considered but rode well last night and I would have thought the type of rider who could do well at the showground.

Agree with there Wolves were my favourites for the title but injuries have meant a stuttering start to the season but now they are getting to look like a decent team and it looks like Douglas has been a very good signing.

I would rather have no Speedway at all as well. I would even be happier if we had to run NL Speedway for a few years under a new ownership. I just cant stand Buster Chapman and his p*ss take attitude towards Panthers fans. So much disrespect coming from him. 

No speedway is the nuclear option though, so Chapman, or anyone with similar gripes which are pretty standard over the last 15 years, is preferable to nothing. At least that gives future options, closure does not.

As for NL, that wouldn't last a season. Nobody will turn up for 4 riders 20 yards apart at the pacey EoES.

I am writing to the Pope as clearly Buster deserves to be Canonized

Would that be North Korean style with the Canon aimed at him? It was not a good evening for Buster last night with Panthers being joined by the Witches and the Stars in losing important meetings.

Best just to give him his 5 minutes of glory. Orion never admits that he's wrong and will keep replying until you top yourself!

He said that there would be no 2019 Panthers without Chapman. Rathbone said that he would run Panthers 2019 whether or not the club was sold. Couldn't have been more wrong there but will still argue that black is white.

In terms of a losing business, if he's talking about speedway generally then most will probably agree. If he's talking about Rathbone and Panthers then he should have scrolled further down the news item that he quoted because Rathbone also said: “Don’t get me wrong, we’ve probably broken even over the four years and maybe even made a small profit ".

Personally I think Chapman was the only offer on the table and not wanting to lose his investment in the future or particularly wanting to carry on in 2019 he pinched his nose and signed a deal that seemingly started to unravel before the ink was dry.

He also said in oct 2019 unless he sold the club it might  have to close that is also in Black and White .. the fact of the matter the guy has put out different statements so only he knows what the truth is . So no one is right or wrong

What a surprise Panthers guest for Monday against Belle Vue is Erik Riss 

Would you prefer Simon Lambert?

Doesn't matter who we have..we won't beat B.Vue and won't make the play offs due to the sub standard team that has been assembled as a number to just keep this this tinpot league alive. After the Harris and Cook debacle and the lack of will to win I've seen over recent weeks from this management they aren't having anymore of my cash.

As expected Douglas is rescuing the Wolves season. With Ash Morris they may have lost.

It makes we wonder how back in the day when you had the likes of Reg Fearman owning so many clubs, how did it work out, or did it?

We had a rather good team until Buster started meddling

it was more than likely a team you couldn't actually afford however.
