    Jack Holder and BWD were having “a slight disagreement” with each other and Gary had to sort it out by threatening to sack both.

    Not true at all. May had to threaten him with the sack.

    Thought Somerset had more ambition but seems not. Really needed 8 teams to be honest. Havent been to Ipswich or Peterbourough for several years so will look forward to that, though much further to travel.

    So in the very near future will we see a convoy of flatbed lorries heading from South Wales will sections of prefab stadium? I somehow doubt it. I don’t believe there is any parts of stadium in South Wales, or anywhere else for that matter. Just bluff and bluster from Stadia UK to get the houses built and get out. At least the council have suddenly grown a pair and said no more houses until the stadium is built. That has chucked a cog in the works,

    Mike. Again you have not read my post properly. My first sentence says, “I can understand people not being able to get time off work.....” Most people can afford £75 for a playoff final trip. And it would be much less if the fuel was shared. Whether people would want a 11 hour round trip to Kings Lynn is a different argument when it’s on TV.

    Then what’s al the fuss about?

    That I am most certainly not. But as you are desperate for some end of season “Do” perhaps you will put you hand in your pocket to pay all the airfares?

    Give Matt a ring and tell him you will organise it.

    Its a fact that every generation is better off than the previous generation. Who doesn’t own a smart phone? 20 years ago many didn’t even own a mobile.

    Never said that at all. I said that some couldn’t have made it due to work commitments. And others might be on benefits.

    Most families have 2 cars. A big flat screen tv. Sky and BT. 2 holidays abroad every year. Weekly visits to Wagamamas or Nandos. People have never had it so good.

    Good news that the club are finally getting the new track marked out and work started. The current track has produced diabolical racing in recent seasons. A new 300 metre track is needed with the right shape. Hope they don’t do a Leicester and put in something just as bad. Finger crossed.

    Doing things right in life? What is £75? Dinner for 2 at an average restaurant? Just over half a tank of fuel? A pair of cheapish jeans? A new shirt? A months subscription to Sky?

    I don’t believe that. I can understand people not being able to get time off work but not being able to afford it? Wouldn’t cost more than £75 with fuel and entry. If someone can’t afford that they should look seriously at where they have gone wrong in life and make changes. People today are better off than they have ever been. Not aimed at people on sickness benefit.

    What to go to Kings Lynn? Anyone could afford to go, surely?

    Us of us who made the trip to Kings Lynn all congratulated the team at the time. That’s enough for me. All this rider of the season, team rider of the season, young rider of the year is just clutter. The whole team won collectively imo.

    Gavan has just posted his reaction to Poole winning yet another championship.

    So are you going to congratulate Poole Pirates, Matt and Middlo, riders and the fans of the club on a fabulous backs to the wall against all the odds victory?
  22. So after last night Pirates take a 16 point lead into the second leg at Kings Lynn. Is it enough? You can be sure that Kings Lynn will be fired up and want to hit us hard from heat 1. The Pirates will be aware of this and will not want any last places. Thoughts?
  23. You know who this charactor is, don’t you?
  24. BT have just released a photo of the ref speaking to Dale Allitt at the time. ”No, no, I saw it clearly Allitt, Jakobsen never touched him”.
  25. Thought the ref got it spot on to be honest.
