A manager in the North and one in the South ....is that because of Brexit, or just a language barrier??? LOL

I think last nights announcements were great. I quite like the 2 manger idea. 
 

And surely racesuits is a good thing.

What a great idea with the racesuits. Forever and beyond promotors have whinged and said how much they cost (as proven before, isn't a great sum of money), well this is a great way of involving fans and sponsors whilst covering the costs too. I see no reason now why other teams don't follow this idea up now and launch a similar campaign themselves.

Most have done this for a considerable time haven't they?.

Hardly ground-breaking!

I can’t say first hand about other teams, but I know Glasgow have done this for years and still do. 
On the “oop north” team manager, I did offer but somehow they thought Havvy was a better bet. From my point of view, I think they’re right :D

Saying that the track is bumpy/rutty/wavy is the easy bit. You need a track expert and ££ to fix it, not riders;)

Did they not have a so called track expert last year look what that did for the track? And lost Matt Ford a load of money.

Not at all happy with Havelock coming in. 

Never liked him as a rider and even less respect as a person.

Not a lot of good at Coventry would rather have Blayne Scroggins

Gary was an excellent team manager for Coventry, popular with the riders and very knowledgable. Good call by Poole
