Alarming noises already coming from the new speedway track at Leicester. Apparently, the crowds have been falling steadily from an opening meeting high of circa 4,000 - and the attendance for last night's defeat by a patched-up Redcar team was the lowest yet. Word is that, though the stadium is decent enough, the track surface is terrible, the racing processional, the team weak and entertainment virtually non-existent. A Redcar-supporting friend told me the Leicester promoter sounded "desperate" after the match last night.
I intend seeing only one speedway meeting this summer (used to be a supporter of the sport going back to the mid-1970s; gave up on its often laughable amateurishness two years ago), and it's going to be at Leicester, to 'tick' the place. Better go sooner rather than later, I'm now feeling. So, next Saturday (May 14th), I'll make the effort to see the Lions host Glasgow in the KO Cup, working it in with a day doing other things in the area.
There's as much pride in this club as there is at Anfield - just fewer people showing it.
If you don't like it, don't ****ing come.
