I’m struggling to see the positives for Poole

Best rider was a reserve who isn’t at the club long

A number one who is riding like a third heat leader

The 2 poles plodding along with 6 a meeting 

Josh woefully out of form

Unless you mean Linus who you all want sacked. 

A very poorly put together 1-7

Thank you Oh Wise One.  Jolly good analysis old chum. Could do with you as team manager.  Perhaps we might meet  on the Ippo thread and have a jolly whizz bang on about your superb septet what!   Tatty ho for now.

As much as Shanes is popular at Poole, Nielsen has come in and is a far, far more accomplished rider. His scoring has been excellent after his debut meeting at Swindon when he was too hyped up. Tonight and at Rye House he has been excellent. And guess what? He was there for any club to snaffle up. And on a low average which he is making mince meat out of.

After all the changes in the last two years Ford had to get something right Nielsen when he is in the top five  he will often only be getting three rides he will find it very hard  in the top five.

And why not move him on, as it's meant to be a sport, which means it's about winning, or at least trying to win.

Winning is not the be all and end all      there is a lot more about speedway than just that.

But surely it's a sport, and the biggest part of sport is the winning?  Or is it not really a sport?  I do a couple of sports and i have one aim, and that's to win.

There’s winning and then there is putting riders out of a job.

Read Justin Sedgman’s article in the SS this week, he loses a team place and his visa to ride in the UK.

Those riders might not then be around and UK Speedway is even further up what’s it creek!

It's a sport not a charity.

I suggest you look up the definition of the words sport and sporting. Sport can be charitable but sadly much has become a cynical, ruthless, money-grabbing business.

Sport is a contest and if you don't want to win why enter. Most sport at the top level is professional and it means more when money is involved. Like any job if you don't perform you get the sack.

And the most money grabbers are the riders themselves
