A bit 'meh' to be honest but difficult to judge until we see some other line ups.

Name me two other sub five pointers with as much potential.

So if Chris returns and James we still have a massive 7.78 for the final rider! Based on Chris 7.16 and James 2.95!

A Hans gap at 7.75 then....

Looking okay so far.

Two Aussies with a  good team attitude.

Two from Poland who hopefully will travel together and help each other.

just want another 3 riders with a good team attitude , and are happy to ride any track ,and we can all put last year down as a bad memory.

Last season felt a lot to me like Matt was a little bit disheartened with the direction the league was heading, and that he wasn't putting as much effort into his signings as usual. This season feels like the complete opposite. Matt is out their turning every rock and trying to plan a killer team. I think this year will be a very strong one for the Pirates.

With the rider rumoured to come in for the other second string berth, Shanes position might be at risk.

No, you just listed the only possible outcomes. Brexit will either backfire and prove all those leavers wrong or be a success and prove all those remainers wrong. You've not actually said anything of any value.

Your post was trying to suggest that their averages should have been reassessed, but actually you don't have a clue whether or not they need to be reassessed at all. Basically, you don't like the idea of Poole playing a decent hand, and therefore would like it so that Poole couldn't possibly take such a risk by having their averages reassessed to a level that makes the risk unattractive to Poole (or any other team for that matter). 

I know you guys are still crying over Doyley but you need to move on and worry about 2018 rather than telling us how nobody is going to be scared by our signings (which is funny considering you clearly aren't decided on whether they are going to flop or massively out perform their averages lol) .

Clearly you're a little scared or you wouldn't be hovering round our thread like flies on sh*t.

You keep trying to put forward what YOU think I am saying/feeling. Whatever YOU think - it is my opinion that I gave and I don't need you to try and analyse it to what YOU want me to say/feel :rolleyes:

Surely an average from 2013 should be reassessed? By the time the season starts that average will be 5 years old. That's not knocking Poole by the way!

The Aussie is Chris Holder. Matt wasn't allowing Chris to go on loan to Somerset he wanted a transfer fee and Somerset couldn't pay it. 

I’d probably say wouldnt pay. Who in their right minds would buy a riders registration in this day and age.

... You said it was either going to backfire, or prove that averages need to be reassessed? Which shows you clearly haven't a clue which way it is going to go, which in turn moots your argument that all riders should be reassessed, does it not smarty pants? ;). Your posts have more holes in them than Swiss cheese! :rofl:

You either believe that our signings will make a mockery of their average, proving your point that all riders should be reassessed and contradicting your comment that the 7 other teams will not be scared of them, or you believe that they will flop, contradicting and invalidating your point that all riders should be reassessed? Either way you've contradicted yourself and now look a tool.

Have heard the same. C. Holder will be back but the other positions who knows.

It's nothing to do with whether any particular rider who didn't race here in 2017 does better or worse than a pre 2017 average. It's a matter of principle, fairness and transparency that all riders are treated the same and to reassess GP riders who did not race here last year but not other riders who didn't is illogical and unfair.

True, but they are two Poles so let's see how committed they are and if their Polish clubs stick their oars in at all.

 

I'm sure you were telling all and sundry this time last year how good Poole were going to be so your comments are best taken with a pinch of salt really.
