    Might need to get some TM advice from Garry May on how to manage Holder Jnr.

    I can only image that might happen if the club makes a profit in 2019. Nobody in their right mind will continue with a business if it has to be bankrolled.

    That’s hardly news!!!

    It’s just the promoter playing his usual games!!! He thinks he’s Santa Claus giving out his little presents to the kiddies at Christmas..

    According to the Poole website, the cost of a 2019 season ticket will be £260.00 for 16 matches which, when compared to 2018 is a price hike. 2018 prices were £239.00 for 16 matches. On the face of it, it appears there is not much point in paying up front for your seasons speedway.

    Might be another Ford on the promoters list!!!! Could be the start of a handover that would allow the “old man” to move off into new pastures whilst still keeping a “hand on the tiller”!!

    I don’t disagree with that but, MF did state that he had to “dig deep” into club funds to pay for it..

    Absolutely Skidder, which would have made the cost so prohibitive, NONE would have gone. The money would have been better spent on improving the Club (and it’s facilities) in readiness for the 2019 season.

    As a sponsor, I know exactly how it works.. I was being provocative because I believe either ALL of the “team” should have gone or NONE of the team should have gone. By the way, nobody forces people to ride speedway bikes, riders choose to do it and they know the risks. I can’t help thinking that the money spent on the “jolly” would have been better spent on “team” race suits. I hope we don’t see the promoters doing an Oliver Twist in 2019..

    So, it’s not a team then, just a bunch of self employed riders with no loyalty, supported by a bunch of self employed mechanics with no loyalty. More like a building site than a professional sports team. No wonder the whole thing is a mess..

    It is interesting to note that every part of the “team” is represented (and in some cases over represented) but no signs of any representation from the all important mechanics. I guess they’re not considered to be important enough to be, part of “the team”... Very divisive move by the promotion!!!

    I hope the promoter remembers how rude and unreliable the Holder clan can and, have been and, treat them in the same way as a cheeky Brit rider is treated!! Hopefully the revolving door will be running at max revs before the season even gets started..

    It’s exactly that mentality that will see the end of this once great sport. Not to worry though, you’ve got more to loose than me..

    Starman, speedway is about watching good motorcycle racing not, just about winning a trophy that the supporters don’t get to see or celebrate. Holder was a part of the “whole” team as selected by the promoter at the beginning of the season, as was Szchepaniak. Holder didn’t get out of the blocks and poor old Szchepaniak couldn’t! But, neither went through the revolving door as quickly as is common practice for under performing Brits. It will be interesting to see how many Brits are in the starting line up for 2019!

    Won’t need too much then cos property can be very reasonably priced in that part of the world.
