    Tell you what. Why dont you get together with Ray R and Poole Kieth and discuse this in a darkened room, and leave the rest of us to talk about 0-18, there's more than plenty of life in this season yet.

    Now Glyn has set the record straight for you on several fronts. I do hope that helps. Thank you Glyn.

    As i said, clearly, you didnt read my post last night, but you obviouly skipped that bit. What suits springs to mind..
  4. Poole v Swindon SGB Prem A. 18th April 2018

    Good idea. Yeh things work slower for me..

  6. Poole v Swindon SGB Prem A. 18th April 2018

    Then please read my above post on last page. Altunatively go and speak to Glyn, perhaps you can put him right where he's going wrong..

    Hmm, i dont really get what your saying here. The walk on music has been brought back for the 70th aniversary, and the reaction from fans has been very positive its jolly and uplifting. As for the post meeting conference, its a good idea, and very well attended, but its great when you win, good vibes and banter flying around, but its very difficult when you have a loss, thats the down side. Personally, i do feel the post meeting conference happens a bit to quickly after the meeting, and does not give enough time for track staff to attend, perhaps it could be staggered 10 mins or so, i appreciate that riders want to get on, but its all part of the show,. The meeting sponsors are never, left alone, Bev may or a representative is always, with them, you may not notice that. H/S depicts this is the case..

    Granted, Glyn didnt rip up the outside, that i do not know the rerason why. Whether he was under instruction that i dont know. The start was ripped up. I think he also had a few tractor issues as well. He was pretty much on his own for best part of the day and with the aformentioned its a lot of work. I do agree Neil and the boys need to get together with Glyn, but on the same token it has to be a collective decision. We still have a few damp spots which seemed to be taking an age to dry out, and Glyn was a little conservative with the watering, because, the evenings this time of year do go colder quickly,perhaps that was his train of thought, and if you flood the track it will just stand and that is no good for riders of both teams. You can flood the track late afternoon early evening in the summer, but not now, watering is a very fine line. The rakers do there jobs, and Ray was down there early in the afternoon pulling the dirt away from the rubbers on turns one and two, because during the last meeting the dirt was like mud due to the weather and in that instance you can only pull it a foot away from the fence, just to get the best part of it off the rubbers, you cannot dragg slush round the track during a meeting. Glyn knows what he is doing, but yes a little liason from Neill Chris when he's back wouldnt go amiss, but as i said, it has to be a collective decision. Adam Sckornici told me in 0-8, if you spike the bends then you are only turning over loose dirt, and there is no grip, you just spin, so you effectively have 3 choices, 1, you dont rip it up at all, 2, you rip it up as normal, or 3, you rip it up and then tyre pack it, with tractor tyres which meens you get the grip you need, but it might be to much. Again its a fine line. You never rip up the inside going in, if you do that you are asking for trouble thats why you never see it.

    Any suggestions then ? Hmm.
  10. Poole v Swindon SGB Prem A. 18th April 2018

    I have no complaints, we were pretty much beaten in all departments tonight, the track was the same for both sides, Swindon Gated and wanted it more, i like all poole fans am very dissapointed, but its one meeting, and the new boys still havnt really had the chance to get to grips with the track but might be the wake up call the team want. I think this is a meeting and result we should take a lot from and hopefully learn from. And i think it would be pretty safe to say it wont happen again,. Josh looked pretty sore in the pits and James has a lot of bruising. Swindon did well, and fair play to them. I did say dear old uncle Rosco brings his side down and they would be ready, except in the main ours didnt turn up.

    Glyn will be there from 8.00 he will have that track in good shape. yes he will have to put water down. But its still quite chilly in the evening so he wont be pouring water on after 4 pm. He will probably do a light run about 5.30 6. Then at intervals during the meeting as required.
  12. Agreed, the only thing thats held Kyle back is his injuries. Hopefully, this season he will stay clear and regain his confidence. paid 14 the other day is a good starting point..
  13. The only reason Spanner is a better rider because he's had the breaks abroad. Kyle would go abroad to ride in poland, 2nd tier, but he wasnt gurranteed rides, but he went. often he would go and not get any.
  14. Then you shouldnt have. Never try and chase more. He was no price when he became world champ, that was enough for me. The bookies totally overlooked him at Cardiff. They can get it wrong. And when they do like you and me, you jump on it..
  15. Who's MS ? Clearly you are not a fan of Kyle's. If he stays injury free he could well finish on a 6 average.. Where's had he not been so unlucky with his injuries and nearly died of Sepsis he would have been banging around the 7 point mark. Who saw him more you or poole fans ?
