I see on the supporters group on facebook, Carl Johnson was asking people for suggestions for riders for guests and permanent. He’s words ‘Come on then everyone, name the 3 riders you would bring in ? Let’s see how much everyone knows’

Trouble is, is if Buster decides to sell, will there be any takers

At the current valuation rate i have £4.50 as an offer if he's interested?

I personally hate all the turning back on fans, lets see what you know, don't like it don't come mentality belongs long in the past. Criticism via social media (justified or otherwise) is a thing of the present and needs to be handled properly by those involved with the club namely by giving honest and frequent updates even if the say things like we have been looking at our options but there are no current riders available within our pay structure.

I will up that offer, considerably, to £9.99 but will not take on any debt liability within that purchase.

How much can you afford to lose per season once you have parted with the purchase price ?

Reported in the PT that BWD's injury is not healing. Can we extend the naming of available riders from Facebook to this forum.

Perhaps someone  should do a sky dive for the boy as Robert Lamberts mother is doing for Greg Hancocks wife    Lets hope it is Blue/Black Panthers   BUT without parachuts

It's been like that at times for at least 15 years at Peterborough. There has been some nasty stuff and management have often been justified in coming out fighting. Generally though it's lack of communication/explanation that causes the problems. Fans get upset and vent their anger and management get upset when in fact they could have nipped things in the bud much earlier with a version of events that people will believe and not the corporate line that usually doesn't stack up to other info out there.

Just read Carl's comments on the supporters group. My hatred for Buster Chapman has now gone through the roof. I honestly hope someone thumps him.

Carl Johnson 'David Bellego was spoken too and was too expensive for us'

That's right boys and girls it's the same David Bellego who Buster Chapman signed for Ipswich this season. Now all of a sudden when it come to Peterborough Speedway he's too expensive. 

I give up. No more trips to the Showground for me. The armchair will do. Not putting another penny in Busters pocket. Utterly disgraceful.

Perhaps Barry has upped his price thinking that Boro are in a desparate position.....

Maybe the budgets at Ippo are different to those at Peterborough ?  Bellego could be afforded at Foxhole but not at Alwarton.   Could be based on crowd figures.

Crystal clear to me.

Buster doesn't want to spend a decent amount of money on Peterborough Speedway to try and turn around our poor run of form.

He is more than happy to take punters money and serve up dross every week with a team that cant compete unless a new rider is prepared to ride for a ridiculously low wage. 

Gates are only going to get worse unless Buster spends money. He doesn't want to spend therefore the gate will not improve and tbh some punters will never return whilst he's in charge.

Even as a not particularly happy Panthers fan, we get the message and it is getting a little tiresome. Yes it's a forum and you're entitled to your opinion but could you change the record. If not while Chapman is there then just sit tight and see what happens because I doubt that you'll change anything.

So does he like Buster or not?  

It's easy fella, whilst Buster is there don't go, when he sells, if he sells, then start going again. Peterborough clearly doesn't make enough money for Buster to keep shelling out top dollar.

Not going is not the answer , Buster will have no compunctions in closing down Peterborough if the money does not work out . If he does with no buyer we will not see the Panthers on track again.
