  1. Fantastic for The Aces on winning the 2nd leg and the Charity Shield without turning a wheel. Luckily, the meeting isn’t raced on this forum and a timely reminder for those Aces fans is that last season the Robins minus Doyle won by 6 points against a full strength Aces team. RR garnered a measly 6 points so I think the chat is somewhat misplaced. If RRRohan Tungate decides to get his act together then the Aces have a chance but Cook is average at Swindon and Swindon’s top 3 will sort him out. I fancy the Robins to be too strong and to win by 10.

    Google translation:- Our disloyal customer fan base that turned their back on us during the last two years when we were getting tubbed think we have a team capable of winning the league. Did you get to use any of the assets during the period of the Frost/Fraud axis? If you did, and I suspect there a number of riders that would fall in to that equation, then surely no loan fee would have been applicable. Conversely, if an asset was loaned to another team would the Pirates not have benefited? That's probably a little more than 'not a single penny'?

    Funny that, Buster moaned about all the money he lost. A similar mantra from Rosco I am led to believe. They (promoters) still haven’t worked it out why fans continue to leave in their droves and their balance sheet figures don’t add up at the end of the year, and yet, they still continue to moan. One day, the light bulb will appear and it will be far, far too late...

    Finally, a level playing field for everyone at Poole? Who would have thought that...

    To be fair, based on last seasons meetings, most of the Poole fans had left by heat 10 or 11, so if Groundwell was made available it would ease congestion following the meeting.

    Put my binoculars to good use at The Abbey when young Tunners rode in July. Really makes people look closer than they really are...

    KK: Wimbourne Road. I love it. A selection of KK’s heats from the 2016-17. That should give you something to smile about after picking your jaw up off the floor from spending 80 sheets... Surely, at that price, the whine would be free?

    I agree that KK’s performances contributed to the Pirates problems last season, however, you did have the strongest reserve by an absolute mile and should have done much better than you did. You were the bookies favourites had a strong start, yet limped in to the play offs because other teams changes were made a fraction too late. Woryna is a good signing and I fully expect him to put at least two points on his current average and a revitalised Holder could see you challenge once again but it’s all ifs, buts and maybe’s. I’d be happy for Swindon to make the play offs. For me, it’s how we carry Davey and when can he be replaced. The top 5 are solid and as you rightly point out, no big improvers, although more to come from Ellis and Alpen. I would say Poole, on paper, have the bigger improvers and more potential but Swindon look more solid. Luckily, speedway is not ridden on paper, although it’s a much smoother surface than Wimbourne Road.

    Have you finished wiping that egg off your face from last season, Steve?

    Is he sat at home watching heat 13 from the second leg of the Grand Final on a constant loop?
  11. Poole 2018

    Would that be similar to the pressure of being 1 point down on aggregate in the Grand Final with 3 races to go and executing a sublime pass on the final lap to put you in the box seat? Is that the sort of pressure you are talking about?

    Let’s hope it’s Hans. Clearly 2nd choice behind Holder and he has decided to sort his own affairs out rather than wait to see what teams are left and who may or may not want him. I hope that hasn’t left the Pirates in too much of a quandary...

    Mmm....Blunsdon in mid-March makes the Arctic seem like a beach holiday!

    You know yourself that Bet365, as do some other brands, bet on speedway matches. How would you sell this particular aspect to the ‘closed shop’ that masquerades itself as a professional sport in the 21st century? What are the potential benefits to the club and BSPA?
