Question for you Gavan? How good was Jason Doyle when he was Brady's age? He was either at IOW in the lower league or he was at Poole struggling to stay on the bike! And look at him now! You have no idea when riders will just suddenly progress. I'm just saying if Brady fulfils his potential he will be better than them. In my opinion of course! 

I've seen a lot of Brady over the years, yes he's very fast and fearless but I've always had the feeling that he is a crash just waiting to happen.

That’s right. You don’t see. Because you don’t see Poole ever.

Talk about running around like a headless chicken! I can see you running around like Corporal Jones. Don’t panic! Don’t panic!

 

I'm right. Nobody needs to see Linus in person to know he's riding poorly. 

7.22 average who is protected riding as a 2nd string who still cant win a race for toffee. 

The team is not good enough and its about time you realised that. We are very fortunate to have 4 points on the board. 

We only beat BV at home because Batchelor didn't try. Lucky for us Cook's partner had a baby if she didn't then that would have been another 3 points off the board.

We couldn't beat a weakened BV team around the NSS. Therefore we have no chance whatsoever of doing better next time when BV will possibly be at full strength.

Humiliated at home to Swindon. AGAIN! 

Pathetic performance at Wolverhampton and for some reason Middlo thinks we can take positives out of the meeting. Even Rye House had more race winners around Monmore.

If you read many of my posts instead of being selective then you will realise i rate Brady. Fact remains he has had a slow/poor start to the season.

Will he be as good as Tai and Lindgren next season like you said? I doubt that. Not as good as Adams and Crump at the same age but has the potential for sure.

I admit riders regress like Holder, so soon he will be expected to beat the likes of Tai and Lindgren, but put Kurtz in the GP series eithe r this year or the next and he would be as big as outsider as Cook

I noticed you skipped over my comparison with JD! Actually I did say a year or so, which means at least one year maybe up to 3. You just never know when a rider is suddenly going to progress, like Ashley Morris. 

Actually Brady has done really well in Poland so far so bet Polish fans think he is ready for GPs!!! :D

When i first saw the 2018 Poole line up i thought that was a championship wining team, nobody in the right mind would surely disagree.

But as much that i admire Middo, i question if his drive and determination is still there

Doyle's late career development is very rare and not a realistic comparison for any rider.

Why on earth do you want Shanes gone?

Both Poole and Swindon built their teams top heavy and went with a good reserve at 6 and a weaker one at 7. Davey has been worse than Shanes yet Swindon are winning matches. This is because their top 5 is performing as good or better than it should be and Pooles top 5 (Kildermand excepted) have been woeful.

Shanes is doing his job, if the other 6 were doing theirs then there would be no issue

Shanes is out of his depth imo. Its ok to carry a 2 pointer if the 1-5 is firing on all cylinders but its not ok if 1 member of the 1-5 is struggling.

Personally I thought Szczepaniak would have been a lot better than he currently is and I thought we could cope with Shanes scoring 2 points a meeting because Szczepaniak would have been putting in the scores Klindt did at reserve last year but he has been a flop so far and now we cant afford to carry Shanes. 

I would give Josh Pickering a go as the No.7 when the new averages come out. Shanes doesn't do anything for me if he doesn't beat the opposing No.7 then he wont score at all.

Riders like Etheridge and Wajtknecht manage to get points off 2nd string's here and there or a main reserve. I feel we need a No.7 who can do the same.

Szczepaniak a flop?

He was one of the riders to do quite well against Swindon and rode well at Belle Vue. Sure as expected he struggled at Monmore but overall he has upped his average and done a decent job.

But it does happen and unless you can tell the future then you don't know when a rider is going to progress. I'm just saying if Brady goes to his potential than he'll be better than certain riders imo.

Look at other team's No.6's banging in points. Bewley, Kerr, Newman (When he was at reserve).

That's what you would expect Szczepaniak to be doing. This is the guy who topped the Polish Zuzlowa 1 averages last year.

Fair enough not at Wolves I don't count that score because the track is very difficult to ride. 

Mateusz has had 1 good meeting for us and that's it. (Swindon) Home but he was riding against 3 of the weakest reserves in the league apart from that night he hasn't done anything.

Didn't top the Polish Zuzlowa 1 averages last year for no reason.

I think you have totally miss-understood my reply, Szczepaniak is by far IMO the best rider for Poole this year!

Szczepaniak 18 points from 17 rides this season is poor considering he has faced both the Swindon and Wolverhampton reserve pairing's already this season.
