Most Poole fans would have been happy for Adam to have returned to Poole the following season.

Adam is poular whichever club he rides for. I ‘d have him back at Lakeside any day. When he left the club a few years ago he told me that he found the track difficult but wanted to come back eventually and master track because he knew itwould make him a better rider. Trrue to his word he came back this year and has been superb.More tothe point he has been a great team man. Good all round bloke and good rider. Can’t fault him. Any club that gets him next year will be lucky.

Of course it does, Stadia UK has a business to run and will want guarantees that the “rent” can be paid or at least financially underwritten. Don’t touch it with a barge pole Starman, you would be sure to screw it up.

Not at all. He loved his time there and is still on good terms with the fans and the owners. 

 

But you probably knew that and we’re just trying to look clever on the internet. 

 

Sorry, you failed 

And a great sponsor in Wessex Marine....

How much will it cost the new promotion to fill in the sinkhole on bend 1?

I know everyone will say his average is too high blah blah blah, but I want as many of this years team back as poss, so that includes Josh.

EDIT - Dear BSPA committee, if you could make the points limit 44.5 that would be great thanks! :D (I make our team total 44.48, using the averages on the other thread)

To purchase any business first you would look over the last 3 years books, see what sort of profit or loss there is. Secondly you would look @ your leased premises, what sort of terms can you keep & what have you to re-negotiate with the landlords. Thirdly you are reliant on enough other clubs that want to run their speedway on the same level as you!  If I was buying under the current circumstances I would offer Matt £500 per meeting staged until an agreed figure has been reached, not too different to the deal Matt & Mike Golding did with Merv the swerv.

pretty much spot on ghosty,heard some guys saying half jokingly,that they didnt think matt would be giving the same excellent arrangement to any new purchaser that he and mike got from mr stewksbury.

You have done nothing but swipe at the club since he left. 

I just can’t work out how people think that a club that makes a profit, with a very healthy fanbase , is not worth a lot of money. 

Other people seem to think lesser clubs are worth money as many have changed hands over the past few years, so why wouldnt the, like it or not, biggest club in UK speedway over the past 20 years be any different?

I don't see Poole being worth much now mainly because the league is in dire straights.The product is mainly poor it is mainly full of old stadia and promoters fighting each other rather than sticking together and trying to resolve the problems .Who in there right mind would want to buy at this pacific time also the stadium is rented.

Not sure which SGBP promoters are 'fighting each other'??  Most of the dire straights moaning seems to be at SGBC level!! Some complaining there aren't enough fixtures when they are struggling to fit everything in to finish the season!!

For 2019 simply get one or two more teams into the SGBP  and set a sensibly agreed points limit; sign riders they can afford and make sure they get priority over any SGBC teams when there are any clashes. Simples.

I dont see this sport being run with everybody pulling in the same direction do you? Also why hasnt talks begun already about next year or will they leave that until March.???
