Hi I am new to this site and was hoping anyone knows something that can help.

The thing is i have a polo 2004 1,2 engine and it wons start.

The engine cranks just fine but no joy, I have spark, fuel, error free computer, and compression of 11 bar on two cylinders and 9 bar on the third cylinder.

Yet the damn thing wont start.

Has anyone ever heard of something like this or hopefully solved something like this

with high hopes and thanks in advance

Never spotted your thread, so apologies for telling you what you already know. It's a known issue on the 1.2. Do not rev the engine within a few seconds of starting.
