  1. 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.

    I think he may be driving home.

    Not my intention.

    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.

    Well done Devils on first victory of the season.

    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.

    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.

    I understand people discussing if the rules are right or wrong. What I do not understand is why people think that the owners of the clubs who are building teams do not know the rules. They would not sign riders who could not ride as this would be business madness. True it would be better if the BSPA came out with a statement that totally clarifies the matter for the fans. If they did that there would still be a great deal of arguments but the rules would be clear to all. Someone said that some clubs could afford riders and some could not so it must be played to the lowest denomininator. Sorry but this does not rub as in sport as well as other businesses the stronger financially can build their business bettter than those on a shoe string. In sport Man Ciy play in the same league as AFC Bournemouth but financially they ar poles apart. The same goes in Rugby with Exeter Chiefs and Worcester Warriors. That's life.

    This may be wrong but Poole always seem to be the point of interest from other club fans when they talk about riders to sign. I agree they have a very large asset base and therefore stand a chance of signing many riders. Just because they are club assets does not mean that they will ride for that club as they are self employed. In one post it stated that if Woffys average is looked at then other should as well. Point is he is a GP rider and guide lines for this have already been announced. A ruling will have to be given by the BSPA on all riders not riding last season and what the criteria is. People have their own opinions that they are quite at liberty to state but they must bear in mind that every club owner in the country is trying to build as strong a team as they can within the rules that have been made. If rules are broken then the team would not be upheld by the BSPA. Poole are one of the richer clubs and riders know they will be paid on time and sponsorship is easier to obtain than at some other clubs. I know that these comments will not be accepted by some on this forum but you have to accept that when you put forward a point of view.

    Just a thought. Does anyone else think Starman and Gavin sound like an old married couple always arguing? Perhaps they really love each other!!
