  1. Crump, Starke, Rowe and Rowe (R)/TS
  2. A blessing in disguise. Watching Allen struggle around Foxhall has been painful for all concerned.

    Belle Vue v Ipswich 2 August

    Hawkins has lost the plot. Any switch in the line up that puts Allen in Ht.13 is madness.

    Wolves v Ippo 19/7

    Not the first time the top 4/5 have been carried by the reserves this season.

    Clearly Cook has issues....best stay well clear.

    Witches v Stars 3rd June

    What was strange about it? genuine question, i'd already left

    My guess is, based on Crump not being out for too long, but missing at least 3 dates where we would have to field Championship replacements or R/R, is the later. If that were the option we would need 4 strong options in the main body. Therefore a significant strengthening of Stewarts position is much needed. I believe he has a 4.00 average and we could go up to ~5.80.

    With injuries to Crump and now Stewart plus the fixture clashes in June, its imperative that changes to the line up are made quickly. Stewart looked out of his depth and when he recovers he'll need to rebuild his confidence at the lower level. Having swapped out Klindt I believe we do have some margin to play with before averages are updated.

    The 8.21 average is way too high for a rider who has been retired so long and not ridden in the UK for even longer however it's largely irrelevant as we clearly had no other options once Holder's visa fell through. Feel for Kemp who has been thrown in at the deep end due to unfortunate circumstances. Struggled in the Championship last year and really needs longer before moving up to this level. Wish him all the luck.

    Without looking up all the numbers, if Holder + Covatti fits, then I'm guessing you could have Iversen + Covatti/Nicholls? TBH, and I know this will hurt a few, I'd probably have Tungate + Covatti/Nicholls rather than Holder. Holder is just too much of a risk for me. Better pray for a dry spring/summer/autumn.

    Sincerely hope these rumours of (Chris) Holder signing for the Witches are not true.

    Good to see the world of make believe is alive and kicking in Manchester. Your assertion of the 'rider in front' rule, which i don't think even is a rule, can not be applied when said rider is only half a bike length in front. If he is a bike length in front and runs up to the boards then fine he's closing a gap. Running to the boards when only half a bike length in front is no different to riding into the side of another rider. If Harris was equally to blame Fricke wouldn't have been the reason for the the stoppage.

    Witches v Glasgow 16/08/2018

    Big hit on the attendance tonight.....at least we might get a programme this week

    Witches v Glasgow 16/08/2018

    Absolutely pouring here (Kesgrave/Martlesham). Forecast is for it to clear mid afternoon but there is a lot of water on the ground. Foxhall Road flooded in places and Bell Lane junction completely under water. Will take a massive effort to get this on.
