  1. Rider Lists

    Hi. Do you still need the lists I have them to date.
  2. Phil do you know when part 2 of the 80's world finals book will be on sale.
  3. Poole 2018

    Yes. Volvo are continuing to sponsor the team.

    Not excited at all with Josh as a heat leader signing!
  5. There's valid arguments for both sides. The 20 heat meeting fitted once upon a time but when someone decided we needed a dramatic ending that's when we started to have the semis and final races which are in themselves a good ending but often produce a 'coin-toss' winner, so to speak. I bet Dave Jessup would have loved our system back in the 1978 World Final for example or Mauger in the 1973 Final. There are so many instances. How many riders could argue if they could have had one more race they might have won? Kenny Carter may have been World Champion. Other riders may have lost it. I think we often feel for the rider who scores 15 points in the main meeting and then goes on to lose in the 'final'. That's a bitter pill to swallow. I agree the old system was fairer of course but then I like a Grand Final too. And in that instance I always root for the top scorer to win. That's justice and vindication of the whole thing. Ah well, we just have to accept what we have been given.
  6. How many pages will this now take up of bitching. If some on here argued like this in the street they'd end up in a punch up and get arrested. Even my 16 years old son can't be doing with it!

    Thanks.....any ideas on the otther questions?
  8. Swc 2018

    Im the same Phil..... Hey while im here Philip, tell me, next year in the Star can we have a 'G' next to a Guest in the scores section. I like to do my own stuff weekly but this has always been a problem cos I dont know who is a guest and who isn't most of the time. And tell me, how are the averages done, are they calculated and updated every day on spreadsheets etc? Just curious. Who compiles the Stats for the mag and the end of season Review stats. I've often included riders in my stats only to find out at the end of season they were a Guest & therefore didn't count toward averages.

    Matt saying Woryna NOT signed yet for Poole. Also the 2 Brits rule has been scrapped. Or has this already been mentioned as I haven't seen it. http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/sport/speedway/piratesnews/15695435.Ford_bewildered_by_rumours_of_Woryna_signing/

    Speedway in Britain dying off like withering figs. Viewing figures and attendance's diminishing for the GPs. Now the SWC has been demolished! I feel like somebody is stealing the shirt off my back too. Sob. Poor speedway.
  11. Swc 2018

    Not gonna work. SWC is a great week of speedway as it is. Just look at the attendances of this years Pairs events. They were dismal, lacks in enthusiasm and credibility all round. Why fix something when it isn't broken?! This years SWC was a great weekend in Manchester.
  12. Poole 2018

    He was in asda yesterday.. Tut tut... I reckon Doyle's coming to us......Kurtz off elsewhere.
  13. Poole 2018

    I thought I would get my Poole badge design done for car stickers. I'm just curious in how many (if any) would like one. They would be 12x10cm on vinyl for the interior and cost £2.50 each. Anybody? Heres a link to have a look. https://www.flickr.com/photos/135764365@N07/24815608288/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/135764365@N07/24815602088/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/135764365@N07/38688603591/in/dateposted-public/

    Quite a few in the shop today. Matt was there a gent as always. No sarcasm please. Middlo was just leaving for work when I got there. So I bought my son a top. Good price as well really. I bought a metal badge and stickers for the car. The badge on the clothing is on the large size however. I know a couple of things nobody else probably does yet....... Re sponsorship for Poole and about TV deal for next season..... The latter is likely no deal and the former is as you were from 2017. As for the other questions above you'll have to wait till they want to tell you.
