  1. So was Emil lucky too then? Or did he plan to try it?
  2. I'm sure Rickardsson is devastated. As Iris says, Simmons is one of the BIGGEST reasons for the decline of the sport in the UK.

    It mostly does. Any of the Ipswich top 5 dropping to reserve would clean up. Ipswich fans really need to get used to the fact that whomever ends up at No 1 is going to struggle in comparison.. and whoever is at 3 & 4 is going to score very well.

    The comments on there are insane. Some insisting Nicholls could do a job at No 1!

    Might want to check the Wolves Facebook groups. It's about 90% up in arms that Nicholls is the better rider home and away. Hilarious stuff. As for the 'never raced' on. I don't buy that argument whatsoever. Especially when it's Foxhall and has changed anyway. Nicholls put in a sub standard display the other night. Thorssell would have to have had a bad night to only have achieved what Nicholls did.

    They did last season.. and he was still far better than Nicholls.

    Good god. I have made it VERY simple for you. Thorssell achieved an average of 7.25, predominantly from riding at No 1. Nicholls achieved his average of 6.43 (Not 6.56) from riding at No 5 and most significantly.. at No 3. The No 1 position is by far the hardest in the side. 3 is significantly easier, to the tune of around 1.5pts per meeting. Your other comments are nonsensical at best. You 'hate' rolling averages? Why is that, you don't want an accurate assessment of the performance of a rider? As for 'league results'.. well, that is the relevant competition so forgive me for considering 'league results' to be a good way of determining the abilities of riders competing in the 'league'. You are right on one thing though.. it isn't that simple.. just looking at the numbers of 6.43 to 7.25 you think Nicholls isn't too far off.. the reality though is very different. Thorssell is way ahead of Nicholls. There isn't anything to agree with or disagree with. We're not discussing opinions. It is stone cold fact that Thorssell has proven himself better than Nicholls in the last couple of seasons by some distance. Just for reference.. when Thorssell had the opportunity to ride at No 3/4 the previous season he clocked up a GSA of just under 9 and had one of the best averages in the league. Once again highlighting the significant difference.

    "League only". There was me thinking that was what counted? You're right, the stats are deceiving.. it shows Nicholls to be within a pt of Thorssell on ability.. but when you factor in their riding positions the difference is about 2pts. It doesn't matter how you twist it, how you look at it, Nicholls is nowhere close to the level of Thorssell. Remember when Thorssell was riding at No 3? He was in the top 4 averaged riders in the league.... Is Nicholls?

    Whoever in the Ipswich team rides at No 1 will struggle. The two at 3 and 4 will fly. Get used to it!

    Stop rambling on. You made a stupid comment. Accept it, move on and stop trying to defend it. As I said, you will never, EVER have been to a meeting where it was done and dusted in 60 mins. I doubt you've been to one done in 70 either. I have made no reference to what my 'preference' is, just pointed out the ridiculousness of your statement.

    Because Nicholls is a far weaker rider, at any track these days, and RR is even weaker still.

    No he isn't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where does this myth come from, are you still living in 2012 or something? 6.43 is Nicholls average across his last 20 meetings. His average is that low for a REASON. Last night he scored 10 from 6, its at best an average return when riding at no 3, with RR operating at 4 giving you both Heat 12 and Heat 14. It should also be pointed out, he has that low average without riding at No 1.. by far the hardest position.

    Nicholls rolling average of 6.43 from last 20 meetings. Those all ridden at No 5 or No 3. Thorssell rolling average of 7.25 from last 20 meetings, almost all ridden at No 1, think a couple at 5. It's not even close.

    What absolute nonsense.
