    King's Lynn v Oxford 17/06/24

    And the incredibly knowledgeable Mr Tatum also stated it was a tac sub ride.

    Thank you for saying what I was trying to say in my various posts. And to reiterate I also don't agree with the idea of team managers asking riders to lose a place.

    Redcar V Edinburgh 14/6/24

    I prefer the notion that the team manager knows the score and either the team manager didn't didn't tell him to lose a 5-1 or Pickering ignored him.

    Good to see Pickering giving it 100% in heat 13. His efforts helped prevent a Monarchs tac sub in heat 14 and a potential 5-1 which would have made heat 15 even more interesting. I hate it when fans say we should have lost a 5-1 so we can use a tactical in another race.

    Thanks for the explanation. I thought it had something to do with h8ing tories and wondered why you all seemed so obsessed.

    Not to mention Rasmus
  7. I live 15 minutes by car from the track and it's been dry all day! Look at the Met Office forecast for Possil Park and the little video which shows all the main bands of rain missing the track.
  8. Photo of track posted on Facebook this morning. Remarkably no standing water. Forecast is for it to remain dry.

    Not to mention all the fans that contributed to a crowd funder prior to the season and bought ĹC merchandise.
  10. Some great racing last night and some controversy. The bottom line is that if the result had been declared after 15 heats, Glasgow would have to beat Edinburgh at the 'dale to qualify for the Semi-finals of the Trophy. After the Super heat and what a super heat it was, Glasgow will have to beat Edinburgh.
  11. Exactly how dare a 15 year old have the nerve to overtake an old man and cause him to have a wobble. Wood must have been so embarrassed!
  12. Totally agree. Fans have been complaining about the starts for years and also the different interpretation of the rules by referees. The new rule is simple, can be understood by fans old and new, and even refs should be able to implement it consistently and fairly. It works in Poland and the Grand Prix. As an aside, I thought the meeting ran quickly finishing at c9pm and we still managed track gradings and the kids race. Finally a wins a win and prior to the meeting I would have accepted any sort of win. Good to see and hear a good number of Comets fans, hope you all enjoyed the racing.
  13. I'm seriously worried about this one. I'd take a win, any sort of win for Glasgow.
  14. This could be another tricky one following on from Oxford. Another team with 2 big hitters in the form of former Tigers Craig Cook and Claus Vissing, throw in Batchelor and it obvious our heat leaders will need to be on form. Could be down to the tigers reserves and at this stage I'm in the dark who they will be.
  15. Good result in the end. Thankfully tactical substitutes not allowed in the ko Cup or we could have been in real trouble! Also we need to remember that any home track advantage we had is gone thanks to the track changes. Like everyone else hope Ace is OK and can take his place in the 2nd leg.
