    Rider Rivalries

    Name some of the biggest rivalries between opposing riders that you have seen during your time following the sport. ill start it off with Anders Henriksson and Carl Stonehewer. Wasnt at Sheffield the night Stonehewer chased Anders with a shovel, but seen them at Newport many times. Anders was usually the only Wasp who could beat Stoney around Newport, Watson rarely did and he was our superstar number 1. I remember Stonehewer losing to Henriksson in one meeting fair and square and causing a right scene at the pit gate. Henriksson then took Stoney off at Reading during his spell with Reading which resulted in a centre green brawl. Sure there will be bigger rivalries, but in my time watching the sport, that was the biggest involving a Wasps rider. Anders had Stonehewers number and he hated it!

    Has NKI announced he wont be riding in the UK? If not then id be surprised if he isnt in this Lynn team.

    Swindon Stadium

    Being in construction I can tell you right now that the track alone will take longer than a week , there is no chance of a semi new stadium being completed before march let alone a week.

    Poole 2019

    I just dont like you, calling you the most disliked person on here isnt obsessed or acting the hardman at all. your constant negative drivel about Poole is pathetic and boring. You are the one whos obsessed, your obsessed with Poole. now your own club are in the same division as Poole you would of thought a normal guy would spend his time on the Ipswich thread, not the Poole one more?

    Scunthorpe 2019

    Worrall when 100 percent fit is a much better rider than Auty.

    Poole 2019

    You have done nothing but swipe at the club since he left. I just can’t work out how people think that a club that makes a profit, with a very healthy fanbase , is not worth a lot of money. Other people seem to think lesser clubs are worth money as many have changed hands over the past few years, so why wouldnt the, like it or not, biggest club in UK speedway over the past 20 years be any different?

    Poole 2019

    Not surprising really ... you considering a bid?
  13. I doubt any buyer would careless about the rest of the clubs in the UK, Poole Speedway with the crowds they get will be a profitable buisness. its like saying pubs are dying so I wont buy a pub thats busy all the time and has madr money annually for the last 20 years, because other pubs are dying and closing. speedway promoters do not lose as much money as they say, every year the likes of Dave Tatum at Stoke say hes lost a fortune yet still the next season Stoke are running under his promotion. It just doesnt wash with me. And the same with a number of clubs. Poole Speedway regulary attracts over a thousand paying customers a week , unless Ford asks for silly amounts of money then it would be an attractive buisness venture for someone.
  14. Because he has been there years and as he says, wants a new challenge. Many buisnesses that make a profit have been sold on. Are you seriously telling me that you think Poole Speedway runs at a loss? There will be a queue of people looking at taking it off Fords hands if it becomes available , same cant be said for many of the other clubs.
  15. Just going on what their fans say. It clearly is a profitable buisness therefore I would imagine quite a few people, whether thats current or former promoters or newbies, would be interested.
  16. I think its great, all the Poole bashing by the usual suspects all season long and they are now crowned league champs. Uk speedway is fcuked we all know that , and theres no coming back from it. If Ford had any sense he would bow out on a high . as for what has he actually got to sell apart from a few assets and tractors, the fact he has a buisness that attracts over 1500 paying customers a week will probably be another good selling point
  17. Poole are champs then! Whod of thought that months ago?

    Somerset 2019

    Bullrubbish and you know it! just like 2005(?) when Poole refused to let Newport sign Craig Watson unless Newport bought his contract, remind me what happened there? if Jack Holder wants to ride at Somerset in 2019 there is absolutely nothing Poole can do
  19. Can honestly I can never remember that and have never even heard that incident mentioned before !
  20. That was the year I am referring to, the Scottish tour.
  21. Poole were being ridiculed after a few months for being bottom and losing at home etc... made some decent signings and now could win the league. Id say its a pretty good effort to be honest , even if they dont win the league from here
  22. Lets be perfectly honest, Glasgow have plenty of history with on and off track violence over the years. Lindqvist/Beveridge at Newport in 1999 when Beveridge decided to boot Lindqvist in the shoulder when he was lying on the ground, with his steel shoe. Then theres the following year when Andre Compton who was guesting for Newport at the time had to have a police escort out the stadium, thats without numerous other occasions. The fans on the whole are great though.
  23. Reserves quite often take 7 rides as well in meetings, infact very often if their in any sort of form. Allen had three ducks on the bounce after 3 rides - youd have to seriously question his fitness if he was worn out after just three rides.
