Me neither but that’s what’s going to happen I’m told coz Matt is stuck for cash to build his hotel in France! He says he can not finance both! 

Bull rubbish. He's not trying to finance both. He's in a partnership.. He's not even building a hotel. He's helping to renovate a chateau. If he's that desperate for cash then he would have accepted any offer - and there were some!! Why would you put your son in charge of something that couldn't make money and why would his son give up his full time day job if there wasn't money to be made?

well he won't be going back there In a hurry when he sees  what's on offer at NSS you can always watch him at the NSS on TV enjoy Edinburgh redcar berwick :rofl:

The only reason you have got him because Poole have dropped down, soon as we move back up, he will be back like a shot

Both! Poole are now a 2nd rate team and a dump of a track. That’s why Matt can not sell the club and will be closed down next year.!

You would like to see another club fold would you

i believe both businesses are not without significant risk,particularly over the next 2/3yrs

As has been said, he’s not building a hotel. And given that the renovations will be mainly complete by February I can’t see how that affects the finances of the club which doesn’t start until March/April.
Also both are separate legal entities so one does not affect the other.

Your financial manager will. 

The Pedersen factor will see Sheffield comfortably replace any shortcomings that Poole might bring.

Not consistently. Definitely not comfortably.  In my opinion.

Absolutely amazing. A championship team reaches 106 pages on a thread in the premiership section. Think a few need to let it go and move down to where they belong. Otherwise jump across to support Swindon.

Splitting hairs anyway. Tracks will see an increase when Sheffield are in town.

Yes agree NP will be a draw, short term, good luck to them.  - but not on the consistent level of Poole visiting away venues.

Thankyou, personally I am very sad that Coventry speedway is lost, I very much enjoyed my trips to Brandon including the times when it hosted the GP, seeing AJ rip between Adams and T Rick was a sight to behold. As a fan who does travel to a lot of away tracks, it is certainly something else I will miss as I doubt I will travel as much to Championship tracks.

My advice is get to as many as you can, the thing I miss about the second division most since Lynn moved up nine years ago is the away trips and tours with plenty of weekend meetings. Some great people from this forum to be found at those tracks too.

Maybe so, but they bring out the home crowd.

You seem to be infatuated with Poole.

I’m just glad that we won’t have to put up with the cheating.
