It will be interesting to see where Bomber ends up, that might tell us something... 

It might be Ippo. It's not the riders cost, it's the cost of the team. Hans, Cook, Harris...In one team ?

Probably stronger as there's no way in a million years Harris keeps that average up.  

The way all this has been handled is wrong but we may very well come out of it stronger on the track anyway. 

Nobody knows who the replacement rider is yet maybe have to take on another European import with very little or no experience of British tracks but who will ride for the money on offer , ive just got a feeling it will not be Tungate  to be honest I might be wrong but that's how I feel, maybe Tungate will think what is on offer is an insult and turn it down.

Well, the way that the Buster Chapman empire has treated Chris Harris, I will never go to Peterborough Speedway again. The way they also treated Chris  Holder, there should be some serious questions asked about the way they do their business. So now King’s Lynn and Peterborough off my list of tracks to visit .

gutted for Chris Harris!

Buster’s reign will be short lived - his ownership method may work in Kings Lynn (possibly Ipswich) but is not Peterborough Panthers Fans  style.   When the end comes and the Club closes for the final time the pain of losing it will be eased by the knowledge that it’s Buster losing money and not Ged. .  

 

 

He could have asked Mick Bratley (who's on the scene now with HA around, for the moment anyway :o ) what to do and not to do at Peterborough.

Apart from Buster himself, who are the empire you refer to ???

If you include Ged in that, I don't think he had a lot to do with Chris Holder !!

You do know that Ipswich is also part of Buster’s so called EMPIRE I assume - better knock them on the head as well!

No. But just think for a minute....Buster has Lynn for 25+ years. He buys Ippo and Boro to keep the Prem going(big money risk). They didn't have to sell to him. It's cost him £££. Cookie is not cheap. Harris is not cheap. Hans can't be cheap.. I don't know what went on, but I find it hard to believe Buster agreed to pay big wages at Boro and less at his  beloved Lynn and lesser to Ippo.

I may be wrong..Are you right?

Out of interest, does anyone know what Chapman has paid to buy Ipswich and Peterborough? The actual assets belonging to a speedway club can't be a great deal if they don't own the stadium they race at and other things like food stalls etc.

Around 199 guineas for Peterborough and a little more for Ipswich ( perhaps 250 ). No-one would buy a speedway club as an investment I feel sure. Buster's "empire" is all part of an Emperor's New Clothes fantasy game. Called the Three Out of Seven Blazers?

That's why I'm intrigued, whether the previous Ipswich and Peterborough bosses thought they would cut their losses and bomb out for pennys or whether they actually had a decent offer on the table. All abit of a mystery.

According to the Peterborough Evening Telegraph Chris Harris is gutted to be left out of Panthers team and could anyone blame him, Ged Rathbone has said he cannot comment on this and Carl Johnson said he been instructed not to comment about it .  Did Ged go over the allowed budget or is this Chapman flexing his muscles to get equality amongst his 3. clubs. Supporters club committee have held a behind closed doors meeting with representatives of Chapman at the weekend to let them know what is expected from them for 2019. So Chapman being club owner has silenced those promoting the team which effect means they have been gagged.    All this just to keep the premier league functioning. I am beginning to wish we had stayed in the championship and not sold out to the dictator.

As I've said many times, Buster will gag all and sundry as supporters don't matter. You are simply just a customer and irrelevant to him.

I fully believe, all the money funding Speedway is from sponsorship, turnstile income is extra pocket money so their happiness over the quality of the product isn't at all important.

What's important to him is that his sponsors are happy.

 I would say that the supporters club own panthers  considering the work they have done the money raised  and the equipment they have bought. I always wanted a return to proper Speedway but we have been well and truly Bustered.  I fear for the future and foresee the end of Peterborough.  It would not be entirely surprising if we did not start the season.  At the moment season likely to start without me.

All this Buster knocking could have been avoided if any of the Panthers fans had of put there money where their mouth is , and bought Peterborough Speedway themselves . It was for sale long enough.

That's what I call a very polite answer,  MRSS is either a troll or is braindead or perhaps both.
