Soundbites: 11th September 2006
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"I must admit, winning is a great feeling."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
