I think we'll agree to disagree.

I think that is a correct observation. However this was not at the end of the meeting in a one leg competition, it was at half time. But you and the Poole team are of course free to reject my analysis and do the same at the half way stage of all future play offs. It makes for a better second leg anyway.

Interesting you have a problem with it when Coventry did it half way through a meeting once!

If I'd witnessed Coventry doing it I'd have made exactly the same comments. As I said it's simple psychology.

I would like to know how they rubbed Ippo's noses in it. They celebrated on track and on their way back to the Poole side of the pits nowhere near the Ipswich side!

Well we'll have to assume that Richie Hawkings lied on camera as Steve said then won't we?

End of the day we all know (except Ipswich fans) the playoff final will be a poorer contest without Poole in it. Neutrals will have a couldn’t care less attitude about it. Wolves v Ipswich? Meh! Who wins who cares? Neutrals won’t give a flying toss. Swindon v Ipswich? Same. Other than the fans of these clubs no one else will really care.

We all know with Poole in the final passions are raised sky high. There are no neutrals. And that’s the truth whether you like it or not.:D

2003 ko cup final. AJ and Janniro were jumping up and down celebrating cos they had a 12/14 point agg lead after about H7/8 ish of course Coventry didn't end up winning.

I guess so as I have seen two different recordings and they didn't go near Ipswich.

Oh Steve. You don't have to educate us in the idea that Poole think the sun shines out their xxes ;)

I think you're discounting the giant killing factor. Ipswich will probably lose to whichever team in the final. But then again, they were definitely going to lose on aggregate last night weren't they

Not if the same Poole team turn up as the one that didn't turn up on Saturday, Poole have had a great title winning run, so please have a little respect for all the neutrals who will be watching a final without Poole in it.

You really are the village idiot, go and carry on sucking on your sour sweets. I gather you won’ t watch the final then, who cares if you do or don’t. Shame your riders didn’t raise their passions sky high last night. You can answer for a lot of neutral fans can you, a lot of neutrals will be glad you’re not in it.

The playoff final will be better without Poole because the better team won.

But Poole are not the draw they once were. Swindon's crowds were always bigger when the Turbo twins were there, but no more. Kurtz and kiddie Holder don't have same attraction. They are an average side now compared to then.

How crap would the play off final have been if Poole had made it............a team of 3 riders and 4 individuals.......would have been steamrollered by Wolves or Swindon...............Wolves easily beat Poole home and away by 49-41 and 55-35...........Ipswich beat Wolves at Foxhall and drew away

A final of Wolves v Ipswich if that happens will obviously be a better spectacle then Wolves thumping Poole
