Clearly the near £40,000 shortfall from losing the main sponsor had a serious affect in finances. Add to that no money from TV and BT wanting to show us at every opportunity also added to the attendances. We were moaning a couple of seasons ago about there being only 9 teams. The league should never have run with 7. A change should have been made last winter.

It will be a very sad day if Middlo is calling it quits. Best manager the club has ever had and impossible to replace a speedway man with a wealth of experience.

It was £20000 the other day

Or was it after the costs of the 2018 P... Up to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix were taken into account???

Until it happens, i'll take Poole dropping down with a pinch of salt. It could well be a way for Ford to try and get what he wants. Either to force the sale the club or change race nights. 

How do we know if the poll result to drop down is genuine. It night be made up to ad weight to Ford saying he's dropping down, making some think it's serious enough to act.

I hope Buster don't buy them, it will affect Lynn again no doubt.. If he wants to move down then let him do it I say.

 

I agree! I believe Matt wants top league Speedway BUT with Wednesday night home meetings just playing games to get there......... Thuth is the whole of G.B. speedway is in a mess with the double ups & downs etc, etc, needs a complete re-think, unfortunately it will never happen.

Poor old Middlo.  He gets his benefit meeting the same year as Ford takes the club down a level with smaller crowds.   Middlo is always getting shafted 

Who Said the crowds will be smaller

Pathetic asking for Wednesday race nights get a grip! Poole are not bigger than the sport to dictate when they race!

You are way off there. There is no game playing. Buster cannot give Poole Weds nights. The only way we can have Weds, is CL.

Shovlar..I don't buy it though. If we get accepted then I hope all Poole fans give it a fair chance, you might be pleasantly surprised!
