    19/07/2018 : Swindon v Somerset : Premiership

    Somerset are seriously strong at reserve compared to Swindon. Add to that Doyle showing his team the best lines, this could be very close.
  2. How on earth do you know Matt Ford doesn’t make regular proposals to improve the state of the sport? For all you know he have made many proposals which have or have not been accepted. Many of the proposals which come from this forum are quite frankly ridiculous. From not being though through to simply unaffordable. Take the notion that speedway is a ten pound sport. If this was initiated the sport would be bankrupt have way through a season. Even NL teams charge more. The biggest problem the sport has is the lost generations of fans. Its a blue rinse brigade at every track, with falling attendances due to the fan base litterally dying off. There are very few speedway fans in the 16-35 age group. Get this age group to come out and things will improve. Easier said than done.
  3. And Poole will always have many more titles, and make the most of being above us this season, in a few weeks time the picture will be very different.
  4. Not really sure what you expect Matt Ford to do. He only has one voice at the agm and is not on the mc. Do you expect him to throw some meetings to give others a chance? And most certainly the Poole team is not expensive looking at the riders.
  5. You mixed up your words DC. Surely you want Swindon to ascend to Pooles level, not descend. Though they are making a very good job of the latter recently.
  6. Like Swindon did with Musiliak. This whole thread has DC2 running scared written all over it. All the P taking he has been doing on every Poole thread looks like it’s going to come back and bite him on his jacksy, very hard. With the robins falling apart at the seams and losing how many away meetings on the bounce? It’s squeeky bum time in the Cook household.

    A plea to BT Sport and the BSPA for Monday July 23rd

    Because it would save me a ten hour round trip.
  8. Utter guff. If the other promoters were as capable as Matt Ford the sport would be in a much more healthier position. But it is being continuously dragged down by promoters who don’t have any savvy whatsoever. You can blame those but would rather blame the one promoter who promotes and actually tries to raise the profile.

    Premiership League

    Think Poole will breeze into the playoffs. We have two home meetings in hand.

    Kings Lynn v Poole would make a super tv meeting.

    Swindon 2018

    Cough Musielak cough. Don’t forget you can’t combine two riders averages. You can only redeclare or change individual riders with another with a lower average.

    Premiership League

    Agree it’s wide open. Swindon are definately on the slide down unless a couple of changes are made. Somerset, Poole and Belle Vue are three of the 4 imo with the other up for grabs.

    Premiership League

    Only after the playoff final.
  14. Don’t think Jason Bunyan would have made it any closer.

    Eh? You have been calling for his head the last month!

    Belle Vue v Somerset 16/7 BT Sport

    No chance to complete with the weather radar. Unless they ride through heavy rain.
  17. You know what? I reckon the starter of this thread is starting to run scared. All this season he has been taking the P out of Poole’s average first half of the season. But in recent weeks the Poole team has started to show signs of good form. Topped off last week with an away win at Leicester. We are closing in on a playoff spot and the thread starter realises that Pirates are now a serious threat to the title. And his team’s form has plummeted with away defeat after away defeat. Harris coming onboard has perhaps given us a bit more. Not a lot by any means. But Swindon this season? Should I say it? Gl.....gl......gl.......
  18. Live on BT on Monday evening is the meeting between Leicester and Poole. Weather is set fair. The track leads to gate and go and Poole as a whole have been seriously crap at gating recently. This could be settled by the exit of bend two lap one. Don’t fancy our chances of any win but a point would be good to keep heading towards the playoffs and the 2018 league title. Klindt should be back for this one and knows the track well. Don’t think Jackobsen has seen it. Thoughts?

    Leicester v Poole. Prem. 9/7/18. BT sports.

    Why would you take away Klindts haul? He is part of the team like the other 6 riders.

    All seven of course.

    And they are welcome to.

    Poole 2018

    http://www.poolepirates.co/news/2018-07-12-bomber-pirate.html Not sure it will strengthen us to be honest. Harris best days are behind him and his form for Glasgow has been poor. Plus travelling from one end of the country to the other doesn’t help. guess time will tell.

    Poole 2018

    The system here is fine. These are the rules and always have been for a long time. Poole don’t have a big hitter like Doyle at Somerset or Morris at Swindon. We have a team of 6-7 pointers and one at reserve. Klindt likes Liecester but I wouldn’t expect that at any other track. It’s completely fair. If we had gone to Liecester two weeks ago Woryna would have been at reserve and Liecester would have won.

    Leicester v Poole. Prem. 9/7/18. BT sports.

    You will have to do better than that. Now only two points off the playoffs, and have 2 home meetings in hand. Belle Vue have ridden more at home than away so we should start moving up the league and finish comfortably in the playoffs by the end of the regular season, providing we avoid injuries. The team is starting to gell. Narrow defeats followed by an away win. Looking up for the Pirates!
