Is the first leg at our place, I can't find a date for the Wolves leg?
    I think Steve Evans is the bloke that brings the American teams over at NL level.

    Obviously, the Yams can't let it go. Accidents and speedway go together unfortunately and last week was no exception. Its easy to blame others for your shortcomings, but in the end, they shot themselves in the foot. Too confident is the correct term to use. Had we been in against them, with the injuries to riders they had, I'm damn sure they would have been rubbing their grubby little mits at the prospect.

    I sincerely hope that Fredrik and Jacob are on the mend soon and ready for next season, nobody with speedway at heart likes seeing riders injured, opposition or otherwise. What happened was one of those things. Seeing the footage of the Bjerre/Lindgren incident, it certainly looks like Fred was all over Kenneth's handlebars and as much to blame for it as anyone.

    When we meet in the cup, we should do, I really hope that common sense prevails and we get on with the job of supporting our respective teams and respect each other.

    The First Leg of the KO Cup is Tuesday October 10th at Wolves.

    Think we have more than a fair share of bitter fans ourselves.

    Probably Youngy105's info came from the same source - but I 'phoned Belle Vue yesterday to buy my ticket for the home leg and I asked when the away leg would be...'Its on Tuesday 10th if its Wolves' was the answer I was given.

    Really hope Sheffield do come back up. Would be great to see them back in the top flight and see them at the NSS.

    Happy memories as a kid of riding on their junior track.
