    Are Poole’s team changes fair?

    You are quite entitled to your views and express them. However, taking into account your other Poole posts a question must be asked at your motives. True Poole changed four riders since the start of the season. Two riders because of their form but the other two because they wanted to leave British speedway. The two brought in for the ones who wanted to leave were one who did not have a top league spot and one who was made unemployed. The other two replaced riders who were "not cutting the mustard". One of these was already an asset and the other who was coming over next year. Therefore it can be argued Poole have only made two tactical changes. Somerset have made two tactical changes and others at least one. I would not be surprised if other did so by the end of the month.

    That was the point I made.

    I just had a look at the green sheets for before Vissing was replaced. Is the reason that Chris could not sign for the Rebels is because it would take their average to 42.54. Just over the 42.5 by .04?

    Belle Vue Aces Vs Poole Pirates 25/6/18

    I was not there it is true. However what I will say that in speedway, as in many things, there are always ifs and buts. They probably balance themselves out over the season.
  5. Somerset were excellent last night. On Monday they had a good result at BV. Charles Wright had a nightmare at BV and the Rebels could well have come back with 3 points if he rode to his normal standard. This is the the first time I have seen either team this season. Living half way between the two tracks we used either one. From this showing Somerset are going to surprise a good few teams this year. A well balanced and effective team. Poole on the other hand I feel will have to make some decisions re their team. Chris Holder coming back will make them stronger but I feel there could be more changes than that. On paper they looked strong but you ride on the track not paper. The track was not up to its normal standard and for much of the meeting there was no overtaking. After heat 5 they did track grading. They did a great deal after heat 3. Jason Doyle came out onto the centre green and explained that there was too much dirt on the inside of the track and it was dangerous. He said it was dangerous and hoped the track work would improve things but it would take about half an hour. Racing did get better but not up to the normal standard at Somerset. Enjoyed the meeting however, must say it was very cold and glad to put the heated seats on in the car to come home. May the Rebels continue their fine form and the Pirates make the changes they need. I am sure with this both teams will be in the mix at the end of the season.

    Belle Vue V Poole SGB Prem. A. 16th April 2018

    Poole are going to lose more matches this season. Don't be shocked everyone, nobody thought they would go through the season unbeaten. All teams are rusty at this time of the season especially with the weather we have had. I never understand why there should be so many league matches at this time of the year. The Championship start with the lesser competition which gives riders time to bed in. Seems like common sense to me but we are talking speedway I suppose.

    A reminder. This is a thread for Poole. Other club fans are entitled to discuss Poole. However, Poole riders and management are of interest to their fans. Therefore, Fans of other teams being sarcastic about things that interest the true fans of Poole are only showing that they are only just hitting at Poole.

    I find it very comical about this rider is better than that rider. He will score more than him. Whoever owns a team selects the riders they want, subject of course to the riders agreement. it is immaterial what any of us think. There are several reasons why a rider is selected. Can he improve his average, how does he ride his home track, how does he get on with his team mates etc. Sometimes, the owner gets it wrong and will try and make changes. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. It is no good anyone saying I am defiantly correct as I have never met such a person. Poole will build a team that Matt Ford thinks will bring the people through the gate. He has done quite well over the years but has got it wrong at times. Speedway is a business like any other and with so many demands on our money it must be a good evenings entertainment for us to put our hands into our pockets. Good luck to all teams this season but remember races are won and lost on the track not on computer keyboards.

    Plymouth 2018

    Your comment noted but means very little. The Plymouth fans are very pleased to have their speedway and that is the main thing. Adam Roynon is a great person for the youngsters to look up to. The area,especially Cornwall has brought on some very good grasstrack riders. Has anyone heard of Chris Harris or a certain Mr Barker? There was very little chance for young talent to progress into speedway but these two had a great little set up neat St Austell. Henry Atkins has progressed a great deal in one season after performing on grass and being mascot at Somerset. He is a Devon boy. How many more around? Also Plymouth have over 20 points in hand so who else may they sign? Living in Dorset, but I am a Plymouthian, I wish them all the best for the coming season. I will not be able to see them too often but will try and get there a couple of meetings. This will be easier as Poole and Somerset will be racing on fixed days.

    Best wishes Starman. Hope you get well soon.

    The team so far looks good. Nobody at this stage can say if it will perform. We know 4 riders the other 3 are guess work. So much depends on how riders perform, injuries etc.

    Wolves would have first choice but if not a rider can ride for another team. Swindon have never used a rider who is an asset of another team have they. Your post is just snipping at Poole. Swindon are a great team and deserve to do well but don't think they would never use another teams asset.
