    To tell someone to get their abacus out insinuates not being able to count Yep the figures may be more regular but if the leagues stay the same there will not be more.............. If Starman wants to debate regularity then fine.......................but why say use your abacus.........

    Poole Pirates 2020

    Totally agree with all you said there We had a great time when we at Ipswich drooped down, far more variety and different tracks to visit

    Poole 2020

    Forget the issues with sponsors there was other issues already at Poole. How then can a team that wins the league in 2018, see a reduction in season ticket sales the following season........did the club sit back and just feel the numbers would take care of themselves? All i can go by is what we at Ipswich do by going out into the community and promote that way..........maybe Poole did that i dont know. I would be stunned if after the success of this season if Ipswich saw a reduction in season tickets sold I would say that the change of race night was a huge reason....... If speedway moved from Thursdays at Foxhall im sure the crowd would drop

    Poole Pirates 2020

    Are you that thick!!!! Poole rode 12 league matches at home winning 10 losing 2 Leicester rode 10 league matches at home........winning all 10.............. Which team therefore rode the most matches???? Poole rode 3 matches at home in the supporters cup Leicester rode 3 matches at home in the championship shield Leicester rode 1 match at home in the KO cup Poole therefore had 15 home matches over the main season........and Leicester had 14............including the fact both teams made the play offs they will both have had 16 Now can you please show me how by dropping down you will have more fixtures..............so glads that the championship supporters now have to deal with a p1llock like you and a troll in Shovlar

    Poole Pirates 2020

    Poole this season had 12 home fixtures plus the supporters cup which was an extra 3 meaning 15 fixtures at home Next year (if same size league) will be 10 plus the shield which is also 3 extra meetings meaning 13 fixtures at home They would then need to have at least 2 matches at home in the KO Cup to make it 15 again the same as this season You cant count the pairs and fours as they are at a neutral venue When Ipswich went down i enjoyed the variety of teams..................but you dont get more home fixtures dropping down unless you make the finals of the cups

    Poole Pirates 2020

    The top division has 24 matches The second tier has 20 How do you explain that by dropping down you will have 'regular fixtures'??? Granted you will not see the same team twice ......but you will have less fixtures not more!

    Poole 2020

    There must be some sort of cover up at Poole Had the best sponsors Had the best crowds One poor season and a loss of a sponsor and all of a sudden they have to drop down. Have all these years of chasing success and paying over the top money for the best riders finally broke the club that after one season there is nothing left to back it up? Matt Ford has put Poole in this position............he is a business man and now he isnt making any money he wants shot of it.

    Ipswich v Poole Prem. 11/6/19

    Rare maybe......but we picked the right match The real Pirates wilted under the pressure Yes you can A full strength Pirates got done easily Perhaps complacency had set in. The Pirates just thought all they had to do was turn up and Witches would just roll over. Or perhaps they have been riding above themselves and tonight reality cut back in? Or perhaps Witches are lucky to have the best manager in the business who can motivate a team not expected to win. Hawkins is a very good man manager and knows just how to get the best out of a team. Whilst it was an impossible task on Monday, the Ipswich track is more similar to Wimborne Road in shape and size. He got them fired up from the start and determined to battle for every point. Perhaps Middlo hasn’t yet got that ability? Edited for accuracy.................... I can enjoy this all winter................

    I feel the problem was that Poole were successful and thought that that would just keep happening You have to move forward with the times and Poole stood still............ Swindon and Ipswich two very good clubs at promoting themselves to get more crowds in Blimey ive even read that the success of Bournemouth football team hasnt helped this season!!!! Cant understand how because they have been in the top league a while now so that is no excuse I used to say Matt Ford was good for Poole.................not anymore it seems Reminds me of Leeds United under Peter Risdale

    Who are your top five riders in 2019.

    I cant agree about Steve Worrall, ended up over 6 but didnt push to be a heat leader. Disappointing seasons for the following: 1. Chris Harris.............signed as a number one but we all new he doesnt like Foxhall....didnt bring much to the table away from home either 2. David Bellego..........crazy signing in my opinion....would be good if every match was at Belle Vue 3. Josh Bates...........needs to probably retire in my opinion 4. Ricky Wells..........poor in the championship........poor for Belle Vue........very strange signing by Poole 5. Jack Holder/Brady Kurtz............combined these two together, only needed one of them to step up and maybe Poole could have done better and their performance at Ipswich was basically disgraceful and stuck 2 fingers up at the real Poole fans

    Cant believe Poole havent snapped up Harris from Somerset and let him go to Birmingham

    Swindon 2019

    Ive no idea what Lee Kilby has done and didnt say it was anything to do with him...just praised him for the way he has promoted the side this season
