Exactly. A few pictures of this stadium in storage and everyone would shut up for a while! Suppose you can't photograph something that doesn't exist! 

I think it's in the same storage unit as the roof for the Odsal superdome :rofl:

Maybe the superdome is being used to keep the new stadium dry?

Are the dogs still going to run when the so called stadium works are being carried out???If they are then I'd say that's the biggest indication that speedway won't be running for this year and TR knows this so let his fans know early 

The point was made that dog racing could survive 2021 without crowds but speedway couldn’t

There’s more to this than just the stadium and the real truth about what’s gone on at Swindon will seep out over time. After all the smoke and mirrors excuses by all concerned you can bet it’s mainly about money!

I don't believe that. As tenants, I think the speedway club are fully aware of what is going on and have been all along. If they are not aware, then Rossiter and Kilby are negligent in their roles.

clarke osborne has kept terry russell in the dark all along matt,i doubt even the senior managers at stadia uk know any details,i believe matt ford has at times found it impossible to even  make contact with osborne let alone get any information from him.There may be other reasons as well but i believe the total and continous frustration and despair with the stadium situation has contributed to terry russels decision.

...and wasn't he involved with the ill-conceived return of Bristol Speedway although plaudeted at the time? Planning permission was never granted if memory serves hence its closure after two short years?
