    AGM November 2018

    There is already hardly any continuity of riders year after year. Only one rider above a certain average wouldn't create a new problem.

    I'd be rooting for Becker as a local boy, but I think he'll struggle to live up to a 4 point average in the top division.

    All Clubs are For Sale

    The Bosman ruling was about clubs holding the league registration for players that are out of contract.

    Flying the whole troupe 5000 miles with equipment will always be a hugely costly venture. There is no low cost alternative. Existing speedway tracks in California are almost unrecognizable for European fans.

    Where in the US do you think would be the right venue to host a GP?

    I think I am missing something. Last year's wildcards were Vacilik, Holder, Hancock and Pedersen. Of them only Vacilik entered the qualifiers.

    I've not heard that before. How long has that been in place?

    Kings Lynn v Poole Wednesday August 29th

    Why would Denmark let Klindt go missing on a Wednesday when they clearly don't have to?!
  9. I'd be interested in a real answer to this as well. Genuinely interested in what the issue is.
  10. When they rules change on an annual (or more) basis it's hard to know what is precedent and what is a one-off!

    I can't think of many riders who have fallen back so far at a relatively young age without a devastating injury.

    Per Jonsson in 1991. Apparently wanted too much of a pay rise and so stayed in Sweden. Perhaps no coincidence that Reading won the league in 1990 and 1992 when he was there!
  13. I totally agree with this. No one likes from the gate meetings and seeing a few mistakes makes races interesting.

    Premiership Most Improved Rider 2018

    A contract which deprives one party of his rights is illegal and would be voided if challenged in court. If one could sign a contract giving up you fundamental rights, slavery would be legal. In answer to the original question, for me it has to be Lambert with honorable mentions for Jack Holder and Bewley.

    If Holder continues to be so poor on the biggest stage, it won't be in Monster's interests to maintain their relationship.
