Not forgetting Justin Elkins who was a great for Swindon and went off the boil when he went to Poole :wink:

Don't remember him being on the boil!

So as a Poole fan Steve would you accept watching a Championship team of riders in order to save the sport?

I know I am not Steve but, personally, have to say I really enjoyed the Stewkesbury era ...... 1985 onwards from memory ..... after the Chandler promotion collapse aided by Mike Lee's ban.

Not being able to see Sam Ermolenko progress was outweighed by return of Martin Gates, retention of Kevin Smith & Stan Bear, and progression of a host of youngsters ..... raw Aussies & my fave Dave Biles.

Cost in terms of my wallet was not an issue in those days given quality of entertainment ..... thus would have no issue watching Championship as opposed to Premiership provided racing was exciting ..... and there ain't much to beat ATM.

I guess most will have same view.

But Holder had been long talked about as a talent just happened that Poole signed him.A bit like now in Aussie List, Gilmore ,Brown are all  talked about as the next generation coming through whoever signs them are those who give them the best deal.

It doesnt really matter, Poole were the club that brought him to the UK, set him up and ultimately he became world champ.

Personally I would get Anders Thomsen and Kacper gomolski  to replace Josh and Szczpaniak.

With Nic in we are currently on 42.21

Take Matt and Josh away and we are on 30.51 according to the 30/5/18 averages. 

Option 1 

I would get Erik Riss=5.75 if possible 

Then have 6.24 points left, see if you could get Wozniak on 5.91 

Option 2 

Other option Jepsen Jensen on 6.52 and then anyone on 5. 47

Don’t think Erik Riss is that interested in Premiership racing at the moment as has a busy calendar on the continent inc Poland plus I understand his GF is coming over from Australia and has planned trips around Europe with her sightseeing

Maybe Kacper and Wozniak would make a good pairing.

They don't have anywhere close to the money needed even if he wanted to ride in the UK again.

After the Vaculik situation I think there is zero chance of Gorzow letting any of their Polish  riders ride in the U.K. let alone Wozniak who has really upped his game this year

Assuming both would be replacements for say Spaniak/Josh G then I question if Matt really wants the addl expense of nett one Pole for the rest of the season. 

Matt must be hurting  financially pretty hard this season with all that's gone on and meetings cancelled etc, so lets say its Woz. The cost of having say 2 bikes - engines - technical support - flights in and out - accomodation -  wages etc. He is doing better since his swap to Gorzow from Leszno and seems to have improved his form so far in POL.

Woz for Spaniak I would go for as he is a better rider than Gomolski. Problem is that assuming we keep Worrall and the rest of the team  we only have 5.58 to play with (taking Spaniak out of the team with Klindt coming in). Unless of course Matt was planning to can Josh G which would fit him in.

Matt may not be in a hurry as next meeting is 2 weeks time plus next cut off for GSA's is only 23/6 meaning he can use the current ones effective from today to work around.

Footnote: Matts article in the Echo today shows how badly the Holder situation has hurt the club when you look at all of the assets he could have had available.

Yes Erik Riss is a good shout but Thomsen is going so well at the moment I would like to get him in the team and I think he would come in on a 6.37 converted average unless he is re-assessed.

I would keep Josh. Due to us more than likely benefiting from his average the following year.....Sack him and he may not want to ride for us again.

Just get rid of Szczepaniak.

If Josh gets an average that is really low maybe? that shows he is on the down slide his mistake i believe was not doing the Championship.Next year on the same average there could be better options out there.

I pay £17 at Swindon, didn't realise Poole was £18. I'm unsure why you've decided to be an arse to me, haven't done so to you or been rude, I'll put it down to a bad day.

Its just the way i read the posts mate. Sadly, there are many on here who like to have a pop at Poole, because its Poole and the clubs success. But i also wonder if a lot on here are really speedway fans because they come across very spiteful and pretty clueless.  From a Poole perspective, if we say its white they will say its black, so really you just put them on block and ignore them, its the only way round it.. We are all pretty cheesed off at Poole with the season we have had so far, i would hate to  talk for Matt. But unfortunately, most of it has been down to circumtances.
