Soundbites: 11th September 2006

Hancock
Havelock

"We've had some severe criticism on the websites. Although it is only a few people, personally I find it very insulting. I value their opinions strongly because they are our supporters and sometimes you can pick things up from them. But the general idea that me and Dean Barker are past it and also Jon Cook I find an insult when all I am trying to do is race a speedway bike and give them enjoyment."
David Norris

"We are happy to be in the Premier League. We have had excellent racing this year and I hope the supporters keep backing us, with next season's PL status assured."
Mildenhall promoter Mick Horton

"I just slid off and must have twisted my knee because my leg seemed to be all over the place in my next ride and I couldn't put any weight on it to support my balance."
Kriss Irving of Stoke who picked up knee ligament damage on Saturday

"I brought three motors with me and have blown the lot. I haven't got another one in Poland so I have pulled out as nobody here is going to lend me one. I can't believe my luck, it is a nightmare."
Lee Richardson on his disaster at the GP

"It was a good effort and we rode well. But Theo's two-point score was a major factor. Had he even picked a handful more we might well have won."
Edinburgh director Mike Hunter on their narrow defeat at Stoke

"Of course it's a blow to lose Josh, but providing the rest of our squad are available, it's not the end of the world for us. We have plenty of strength in depth and we can use rider-replacement for Josh."
Scunthorpe promoter Rob Godfrey on losing Josh Auty to a broken collarbone

"King's Lynn are a great side and they are on a roll. We always knew we were going to be up against it. But I'm disappointed with my own performance - I seem to have dipped a bit. I'm not making the starts like I was and it's annoying. It's nights like these when you need the captain to go out and score big points and lead by example, but that didn't happen."
Redcar's Gary Havelock on their home defeat on Thursday

"I must admit, winning is a great feeling."
Tim Stone - Happy with a long awaited Newport home win

"We were so disgusted we announced we'd be resigning and putting the club up for sale. But having had time to reflect on the matter we have decided not to."
Glasgow promoter Alan Dick on 'Bird-gate'

"We got the two points we needed and now it all depends on our last three matches next weekend. Losing Stancl was a big blow, however, and we will need to monitor his progress over the next few days."
Newcastle boss George English - their win over Isle of Wight keeps them in play-off contention. George Stancl suffered neck, back and knee injuries in a heat 10 crash.

"We have had a hell of a lot of home meetings in a relatively short space of time lately and I have been delighted with the crowd levels. I have stuck to my promise of delivering a team that is capable of winning things and it seems the supporters have responded by turning out regularly. The standard of racing has been first class all season and I have to say the same about the support."
Colin Horton pays tribute to the Peterborough support

"Joe's injury is a real sickener. The signs were there for a good run-in to the season in the cup and the league."
Ian Thomas on Joe Screen's broken collarbone

"It's a great result for me. We've been working so hard all year and we've made a few silly mistakes and had some bad luck, but it all came together on the night. I've been struggling a little recently, but it looks like we've solved our motor problems. The silver medal is what I have to go for at the moment, but the World Championship itself is what it's all about and I still feel I have another one in me."
Greg Hancock on his Latvian GP victory

"Svemo put a lot of pressure on him and I have a degree of sympathy with him over that. But the club and myself have been very loyal to him. I think he's done seven matches in Sweden on a Thursday and we're giving him about 50."
Chris van Straaten on the Magnus Karlsson situation. The Swede missed a Wolves match to fulfill an obligation in Sweden.
