    World’s best 15?

    This nonsense again. There's not a single sport, team or individual, that has the 'outright best in the world' selected within their sports. Why is that? Simply, based on opinion. Every single sport is selected off of a human beings opinion. Not all F1 drivers are "the best in the world". Not all MotoGP riders are "the best in the world". Not all the players in the PDC Premier League are "the best in the world". It's purely a matter of opinion from the selectors & it's purely a matter of opinion from those opposing the selections. There are zero "facts" only stats as to who is or isn't best for the jobs. Shock, horror for many, stats ain't facts.

    I'm no Chapman fan but I'm also not blinkered & fair. I've defended Chapman alot over this myself & as I said, most Peterborough fans came to terms with closure until Tomlin started shooting his mouth. Micheal Tomlin is the problem in all this, not Chapman. This guy promised to buy the ownership & trapped off about land to build a new track & it all kicked off from there. Has he now ran off & left it to Bratley & Johnson to figure out?? Don't hear much of Tomlin's name to save the club now do we??

    Where Chapman gets the blame is the fact that the "horse has already bolted". Bratley & Co have only been allowed to save the club once it was closed down. Tough job once clubs have already gone, so no blame at their door. The biggest p*!ck the fans should be pointing the finger at is Michael "The Musk of Peterborough" Tomlin. Opening his massive mouth, selling the dream to Peterborough fans & not backing it up. Chapman has never wavered from closure after 2023 & he deemed it a miracle to have got that season as 2022 should have been the last. Every fan knew the situation & was dealing with it in their own mind until 'Billy Big Bollox' and his false promises opened his mouth.

    That's exactly it. If those past businesses are willing to return then they would need to have their name within the fight with the Speedway. Then past accounting becomes viable along side future accounting. It will become extremely difficult to find 'new' businesses to take on the fight. I know it comes across as a doom merchant but I think it's fair for fans to understand the challenges of a standalone fight. Going back to the original post, regarding what are AEPG doing. If they can prove Peterborough 'offers nothing' to the community outside of match days & away from the EoES, Peterborough Speedway absolutely 100% needs past & future businesses alongside. AEPG are looking for those final nails

    You're right, but only if all the businesses help fight the cause & highlight the effects moving has had on their businesses & show they had intended to stay. You can't use historical figures of many businesses to fight a standalone case if these businesses have relocated successfully. Peterborough Speedway are flogging a dead horse going at this alone.

    Here's the problem, you can't use past accounting as an argument for viability as all those businesses & events have moved on. You need future accounting from businesses & events that want to come in as the land is. As I said, Speedway needs help, you're flogging a dead horse going alone. Peterborough's situation isn't comparable to Coventry & Oxford as they have the multi-use of the facility. With the land vastness of the EoES, Peterborough cannot argue the viability of the stadium & 'fictional' accounting without other businesses on board. Or the other option is a simple one, find a multi millionaire to buy the land from EEAS

    Don't disagree but Peterborough Speedway group desperately need to get people that sees the venue as a 'viable use' on board asap. Going alone is just flogging a dead horse. Do Truckfest care they're gone, does the Caravan Club care they're gone, does EquiFest?? Whilst things are difficult for EEAS & AEPG right now, they know they can bide their time

    And I agree with that. The problem there is the landowners don't want other events, Monster Trucks, Stock Cars, TruckFest etc. The only product fighting to remain is the 'not cost effective' Speedway. The only way Peterborough Speedway will return to the Showground is if the promoter / owner (whoever that ends up being) pays significant yearly rent & organise events outside of the sport to try recouping the outlay.

    Manchester United & Peterborough Panthers is comparable with the original point. The discussion was with regards to the use of grounds & what Peterborough Panthers offers to the local community. The answer as a whole is nothing & you tried to argue that football stadiums / clubs are the same, it's absolutely not. Many football clubs, even at 'None League' level offer far far more to the community than any British Speedway club. Why should the land owners keep a stadium functional for Peterborough Panthers just for, at most, 30 days a year?? Coventry has a much better argument due to it's multi use functionality with Speedway, Stockcars & potentially Greyhounds again. Peterborough doesn't offer that.

    Is this a serious post?? Football stadiums are 24 days for 90mins?? Club shops 7 days a week, executive suites 7 days a week, 7 days a week restaurants, function suites, stadium tours, charity work, 100s of office staff required 7 days a week.

    Seems reasonably simple. Basically asking if the Speedway brings anything to the community outside the sport excluding match days. Schools, charitable work, community gatherings etc. It's a fair argument to the use of grounds as Speedway is once a fortnight for 6 months.

    It is ridiculous but have rider's ever had their averages increased?? Also to a half point figure of 7.50?? Absolutely, Birmingham's management have requested it rather than the rider's being given it. The numbers just make no sense at all, Pawlicki & Milik are nowhere near 7.50 rider's

    That's not a problem for Belle Vue. Do enough for top 4 & strengthen up in August. Changing early isn't necessary if the team can at least win at home

    Brum may get 4 reasonable gates when Woffinden & Sayfutdinov roll in to town but the other clubs offer nothing for the home fans to get up for if they're getting wolloped week in week out
