    I am not asking you to check with me what you post nor have I asked you to. I have just become tired of your posts about the same thing time after time & simply said if these things are bothering you so much then make your points to the club directly , give them your idea’s & help them fulfil them for the better of the club. Some of points you raise are valid questions . Maybe you would consider chairing a supporters committee that could meet with the club once a month to raise concerns & opinions of the paying supporters ? The supporters club are about as much good as a chocolate tea pot & are almost ran by the clubs owners with their committee as mere puppets , so asking these hard questions to the club are impossible because the club will just withdraw the free tickets they are given every week & take their 50/50 draw off them if the supporters club stir the hornets nest too much. Let’s not kid ourselves most promotors they run speedway for the love of the sport & for beneficial tax reasons of their main source of income. There is a reason why hardly any speedway club makes a profit .

    Iain the questions you ask are valid questions & may i suggest you ask those questions to the club & jaybea designs instead of the consistent moaning on here. I can assure you the club have zero say in what Jaybea sell . They sold the merchandise rights to Jaybea due to the costs & time connected to producing the items just like at around 90% of other clubs speedway is not the main source of income to the owners/promotors so on a day to day basis they have to run their other business that then in turn props up the speedway clubs so having the time to source & then deal with companies is at a premium . I don’t not know of many clubs that produce their own merchandise most of them are subbed out to other companies & Jaybea are recognised at one of the best hence why are represent so many clubs. I know all of this because I asked the same question you have regarding the clothing in 2019 along with the poor quality & got a nice reply from the club informing me of this. When i refer to the 10k that is not to buy a riders contract more the riders loan fee to their parent club.

    Because the costs of making & selling your own merchandise is astronomical money that simply the club do not have. I would much rather the Bates invested 10k in signing a rider who could help the team then on club merchandise . The bates tried it once at Sheffield & lost alot of money so now there sub let the selling of club merchandise to Jaybea designs for both Leicester & Sheffield. I just feel like everything you post on here is negative & some of the ideas you have to help are good but can i ask why you have never offered your help/ideas to the club ? You have in the past criticised the track prep/staff i know for a fact they would love your help & input at the next meeting or on a work party up there ?

    But the fact remains & something you don’t seem to accept despite being told a number of times now is the club are not responsible for the merchandise . The club make nothing from the sale of merchandise so have no interest in what they do & don’t sell. Contact Jbea designs regarding your issue with the lack of merchandise or will that not suit your agenda of a vendetta against the club.

    Sheffield v kings Lynn

    Just intrigued to find out how young Dan Thompson got on last night I know he scored 2+2 but were gift points or did he ride well for his points ??

    I understand this isn’t effective until after Eastbourne , that was the Leicester plan anyway. But things change fast in speedway

    I think the simple fact is the fixtures were done before Cardiff was cancelled. I can assure you Leicester have tried to manoeuvre the fixtures around for weeks to get a fixture in the height of summer but no club were willing to come this Saturday for one reason or another but mainly rider availability . Like Kent for an example after the match was cancelled a few weeks ago Leicester offered them this Saturday but they refused to come because Scott Nicholls was unavailable hence the date in September.

    Eastbourne v Leicester CL 18/7/21 3pm

    Hans is riding in Poland in an already scheduled fixture before he signed for Leicester so they are entitled to a guest & they come no better then Scott Nicholls. It will be a strange one for Jake Knight riding for Leicester in the Championship & then swapping to the other side of the pits to race against Leicester in NDL. Why does Drew Kemp miss Sunday’s meeting ? weather looks good hopefully the action on the track can match.

    I have just been told Zaine Kennedy is not the 2nd signing & it will be somebody else coming into the team for Saturday.

    it’s only the top 4 into the play offs with top of the table getting a choice of opponent in the semi final.

    Dan will remain at reserve on a 2.00 surely ? Amazing signing of AnderSEN but not a word or mention on who the other rider is & surely we can’t be allowed to run with 6 riders on Saturday ?
  12. Iain I thought it was a decent meeting if I am honest . I heard them mention twice the Paul Chapman & Son’s arena the home of the reigning league champions . As for the trophy it has been paraded , shown & shared with the fans. I can only assume you missed the meeting where they displayed & paraded the trophy the day after that fantastic evening in Glasgow ?
  13. When did we sign Connor up & bin him off in favour of Josh Bates ? Connor was never signed to Leicester for 2020 or 2021. Originally it was Ellis Perks but he decided to retire so we got Josh back.

    I am sorry but with today’s result Ty Proctor & Josh Bates simply have to go now. I know Josh didn’t ride this weekend but his performances & injury's alone are enough for me. Don’t get me started on Ty Proctor last time i checked you turned the throttle back & the bike left . He rolls the throttle off & turns the bike right almost like he doesn’t want to race. Can anyone who was there tell me if he was the same at Newcastle today ? No more excuse or compassion can be given . We all know the only reason they are still in a job is because of their connection to our club owners. The next 7 days will be key to what the ambitions of the club are . Strengthen up & we have a fighting chance of the play offs leave the team as it is & we can kiss goodbye to any chance of silverware.
  15. If I book tickets do they need to be printed off or can they be scanned via my phone ?
