    Unattached British Talent ?

    There appears to be a great number of people who do not like the fact Poole have signed two Aussies. Lets just look at the other teams in this league. Berwick 2 from UK, 2 Aussies,1 Fin,1Dane, 1 Finland Birmingham 5 from UK, 1 Sweden, 1Italy Eastborne 7 from UK Edinburgh 3 from UK, 3 Aussies, 1 Dane Glasgow 1 from UK, 2from USA, 2 Danes, 2 Aussies Kent 5 from UK, 1 Aussie, 1 Italy Leicester 4 from UK, 3 Aussies Newcastle 3 from UK, 1 Dane, 1 Aussie, 1 Slov, 1 CZ Poole 4 from UK, 3 Aussies Redcar 3 from UK, 1 Germany, 2 Danes, 1 Aussie Scunthorpe 4 from UK, 1 Fin,1 Dane, 1 Aussie Somerset 4 from UK, 1 NZ, 2 Aussies

    Gavin keep cool.Chill out. Yes you are totally entitled to your opinions but others are equally entitled to theirs. Please don’t think either you or them are correct. Only time will tell and no matter any of your thoughts who knows who is correct. Anyway, just enjoy the time of year and Peace on Earth and on this forum. Happy Christmas.

    Confirmed Signings for 2020

    The maths seem wrong here. Plymouth have 5 riders adding up to 32.87 not 35.26 If my maths are correct this leaves them with one rider at 3 (reserve) and the final one up to a max of of 3.13 at the 2 position.

    What do you mean I should know my place. Out of interest to you I go to Somerset, Plymouth and sometimes Poole and Swindon. I suggest you do not be so rude.

    For clarity Eastbourne were relegated from Div 1 to Div3 if that is your reasonin. However, I suggest you are totally wrong and they did it to survive and cut costs like so many other teams have done in the past to ensure speedway survives. personally, I would prefer any team did that instead of going out of business. Looking at the crowds at some tracks with the ever increasing costs including flying riders all over the continent I am surprised if some of the higher league tracks will survive . I sincerely hope they will but we will see over the next few years.

    Not worried about all this bickering going on BUT just clarify Poole were not relegated but chose for whatever reason to drop down.

    DC2. Poole are now in a lower league. Swindon are champions. Fact. Poole have won far more Top league titles than Swindon. Fact Swindon in theChampionship (equivalent) were great entertainment. My family went every week. Speedway is a great sport and I trust Swindon will carry on the great work Rosco has done. ExExeter Weymouth and Poole with a Poole wife) About time you spent more time on your own team I think but only my opinion. anyway, Merry Christmas.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    I keep out of the silly talk on here about Poole dropping down a league. The fact is that for economic reasons they have and that’s that. Personally , I would of hatted it if Poole had to let Ward, Holder and Magic go but those days have gone and the league has been diluted tremendously. Remembering when Poole were in the 2nd div before the racing was great and riders and fans were as one. Now top riders ride in so many leagues, home and abroad whose riders are they really. Costs of flying foreign riders in are tremendous and crowds are reducing. Therefore, if you want speedway costs must be cut. Yes it was great watching the Premiership it was no where near the standard of the old EL. Also watching Somerset the racing was great and a lot closer. Plymouth in the bottom league also provided some good racing on their own track. Therefore, you can say my team are better than yours but speedway is speedway and the closer the racing makes it interesting. Well done to Swindon for winning the league but remember they enjoyed the lower league in the past and I for one enjoyed it most weeks.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    The point with Poole dropping down is that speedway will remain. They are likely to have matches against Eastbourne, Somerset and possibly Plymouth all within easy travelling distance. Costs will be reduced but I do not think crowds will. Speedway in the Premier is now very expensive with riders demanding high money. Top foreign and home bred riders do not now ride in this country. The number of riders riding in both leagues appear to be increasing so how many riders will the crowds miss out on? Yes you will miss out on the expensive riders but so be it to keep speedway. Yes Elite racing was great racing when the like of Ward, Holder, Richardson, Magic plus many others were here but those days are long gone. The racing in the lower league at Somerset has been great with more racing than in the top league. Racing in the lower leagues was great when the Wildcats/Pirates were in the lower league and crowds were great. i would prefer speedway in this league instead of no speedway. Also TV will now be showing both leagues so exposure will still be there. Also it will be open to free view viewers as well as those of us who pay.

    Poole v Ipswich Play Off Semi 1st leg. 23/9/19

    Ipswich all the way. Poole just not in it. Chris Harris is a legend.

    Please explain Ref decisions were poor throughout. Admit it could have been all four back for Heeps but what else? Serious question.

    Peterborough v Poole Prem Mon April 15th

    I agree that Worrall and Covatti had off nights. One thing to consider is Covatti had just won the Italian championship on Sunday and had just got back. Agree riders do this all the time. However, I must bring these facts to light in view of what you say of these Poole riders. Remember Poole have raced 3 meetings one at home and two away. Over these 3 meetings Worrall is a little down on his average at 4.72 against a start of 5.46, Covatti even with such a low score yesterday is at 4.72 against a start of 4.70, Kurtz is at 8.00 against a start of 7.05. I am not saying there is no room for improvement but why show concern at this stage. A few more meetings balanced home and away before any true judgement can be made.
