    I went to Halifax a couple of times in the late 60s and their ground was a complete joke, from memory on one side they had the smallest stand I have ever seen at a League club which surely couldn't have seated 50. On the other side it was covered but only an embankment underneath where at the...

    If Southend United cease to exist.....

    What would you do? I reckon I might watch speedway, a low quality regional Ice Hockey/Basketball team or perhaps just hang around the bus stops at the top of Hamlet Court road with a can. Anyone else?

  10. Safe Standing- Government seeking advice on laws to review

    A message from the Football Supporters Federation. The new coalition government has pledged to scrap unnecessary and “nannying” laws. We believe that the ban on standing at football grounds in the top two divisions is just this. In England and Wales, you can stand in rugby grounds, at Speedway...

    Speedway - Get Stephen Fry to a Speedway meeting! (please humour me and read :D)

    This weekend, the biggest Speedway event in the World - the British GP, took place at the Millennium Stadium without so much as a whisper in the National Press, such is the status of the sport these days in Britain. Speedway's promotion is dull, misguided and ineffective - Have a bit of fun...
