  1. Should be a good meeting as both teams have home "RACE TRACKS" Belle Vue's performance will depend on which Cook & Tungate turn up! both can be awful or brilliant. It will be worth the visit to see Great Britain's future number 1 Dan Bewley.
  2. Agree 100% with you, in my opinion the biggest mistake in today's speedway are the play off's they have done more damage to speedway than anything else. They should be scraped & instead run an end of season K.O.C. one for the top half & one for the bottom half of the leagues. BUT NO wholesale team changes allowed.

    It does seem ironic that this Poole tread is now on page 666! The way i see things " All's fair in love & war (& speedway) as long as Poole are allowed the make the play off's is Matt Ford the Devil.
  4. Totally agree with what you say, something the BSPA is completely oblivious to. This is where the play-offs fail the teams that don't make the play-offs.

    Plymouth 2018

    While visiting Plymouth on business a couple of weeks ago (a Friday raceday) I called by to have a look & must say how impressed I was with the track & the preparation for that evenings meeting. We are having the hottest & driest summer since 1976 (a year I was involved with track prep myself) credit where credit is due well done Plymouth.

    Ipswich 2018

    Signing for the witches has been a disaster for many a rider in recent years (with the possible exception the Roo boy) don't know why but it's been injury after injury! Drew Kemp does appear to be an exceptional talent, is this not a bit early & is it the right track? interesting what others think.
  7. Glad to see some people are on the same wavelength.
  8. Not fair because: It favors the "better off clubs" one great thing about G.B. speedway is that (in theory) all clubs should start the season "equal". CHOPPING & CHANGING RIDERS mid season is one reason for speedways downfall in the last few years, it's not fair to riders, not fair to sponsors of those riders & not fair to fans of those riders.
  9. Are Poole's changes fair? of course not. Are they good for other clubs/U.K. speedway? NO. Are they with-in the rules? YES. Are they good for Matt Ford & Poole YES of course they are!

    Surely once we are out of the EU, we revert to treating our commonwealth cousins with the respect they deserve, thousands lost their lives in 2 world wars fighting for our freedom.

    I'm very confident a good mathematician/accountant could have presented a set of figures showing the Rebels with Bomber within the set points limit! simple business accounting!

    Is that the same Chris Harris that wasn't allowed to sign for the Somerset Rebels? As they say: it's not what you know - but who you know!

    All this rider move talk, after the sad demise of another track..... The words PARASITE & VULTURE come into my head - is it only me? This would be the same teams that appeared to offer no compromise to the Rye House situation. ALSO are the new prospective employers willing to offer the "super duper" guarantees that they were on @ Rye.

    I will second that, hope that they can finish their premier season.... STOP paying silly rider guarantees would be a good start... If it means they run Saturdays, I can't see a problem - but careful planning of the rearranged fixtures would be paramount. Fingers crossed.

    modern track prep

    Biggest problem is the "unavailability" of good shale. it is available but the quarries that have it will not supply speedway - because that have to many bad debts (non payments) Yet another example how G.B. speedway is in self destruct!

    Somerset 2018

    Somersets next home meeting is listed REBELS v Rye House Rockets............ Anyone know what's happening or not!
  20. Excellent post, pretty much sums up this once great sport of ours. However "expect people to come and pay their money and come back again the next week" there's no meeting next week, the next home meeting is 2 or even 3 weeks time, therefore even diehard fans get out of the habit of their weekly speedway fix!
  21. Could you please park in the big hole on the bend!

    Assuming Matt pays decent points money, the poor season the Pirates are having would equate to a lot less money being paid out & more in Matt's kitty! All teams work with-in the same points limit, unlike other sports it's not that easy just to go & buy success, maybe the time has come to invest in up-&-coming british talent, most things go round in circles in life & that includes speedway!

    Somerset v Poole Prem A. 20/6/18

    Nice to be smug with my perdition of the result, 48 to 42 not that far away! Biggest factor in last nights result for me was Richard Lawson getting stuck-in & passing the pirates, I've not seen the son of god ride like that before @ the Oaktree...
