I had the flu in 2003. A cold it is not. Man flu it is not. I was laid out for over two weeks in bed and affected for well over a month Totally exhausted before slowly recovering. It is true to say that line that if a 50 pound note had Wafted past my bedroom window I would not have got up to pick it up. It really can be a life threatening illness for the weak and elderly. If a jabs available for free from the doctor don’t hesitate IMO.

Sorry you had this awful experience and if you are happy to have the Flu jab then  that's your choice and I would probably change my mind if I had the same happen to me.  I am definitely  elderly but not weak ~ probably due to the fact I am out every day in the fresh air so don't really come into contact with anyones germs like if I worked in a hospital, school etc.  Obviously doctors are going to push people to have the jab as they are being paid by the government but the text reminders I have on my phone are just deleted. Fingers crossed now that I get through another Winter. ;)

Do you stick to your very clever observation that most speedway fans are OLD and turn up to watch any old rubbish??? Also what is wrong with being old ?

Obviously taking over from SCB who was always going on about old people. I'd rather be old than  have a mind like his.

Do you feel any different Gemini mindset wise from say 20 years ago.??  would there be any speedway  in the UK without the 40 plus year olds.?? That is the biggest problem we have  enticicing a new generation to replace the old one's me included.

Yes you are right. I was a bit quick off the mark and very disappointed to read and hear there was a risk of us dropping down. Hasty is the right word.

I have always much preferred the highest quality racing, as I prefer top league football. I went to Swindon Town v Newport recently and what a load of crap that was. 

I did enjoy Poole when they were in the NL as I didn’t have anything to compare it with. But the sport has changed completely from the 1990’s. And when we moved up the racing was just so much better.

I might not feel like it now but if Poole do drop down, by March I will probably trundle down the road to the stadium. It’s in the blood.

That's the spirit.

I thought Swindon was in your blood once,  maybe it  could be  Belle Vue instead in 2020.
