  1. Obviously many will have other options but as Robert Lambert's injury seemed to put a break on his 2019 season, I believe it will mean we will get another year out of him at the AFA. There are suggestions that he may not be asked back by Lublin as they've been disappointed with his performances. Obtaining only a 3.48 average. Potentially now a shoe-in to remain in British Speedway for 2020. For me: 1. 2. 3. E.Riss 6.61 4. M.Palm-Toft 6.30 5. R.Lambert 7.81 6. 7. B.Nicol 3.97 Fill in the gaps for the rest

    Absolutely, can see the floating speedway fans that usually go to the AFA swapping over to the Showground too. Fancy this Panthers side to win at the AFA if both team stay injury free.

    Everybody has access to podcast, Facebook, Twitter etc. To be on here you need access to the Internet. It's not the clubs fault but your personal choice to not venture to these other outlets that has information

    I hope it works well for both Crump & Ipswich but after a couple of months I feel Jason will remember why he retired in the first place

    Not true, Crump has been on a bike quite regularly in Oz, was racing in their winter months (during the UK season). Has lost over stone in weight since xmas too.

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    But you now can't read anythings from the Lynn News online without having to 'pay-per-article' or by a copy. Generally people only view the EDP if they're interested in Norwich City as it's actually quite poor for news on the King's Lynn area. As far as I'm concerned, social media and the clubs own website is the best way to get news out.

    No shock signings and nothing to get excited about with this team. 4 of the 7 shouldn't have been included

    Transfer Window

    Now Poole have gone I don't see what this ruling adds. Can't think of any team last season or before that that's made many changes for the sake of change. While it sounds like something, it's actually nothing.

    It'll be a tough ask but it's certainly required that a minimum of 25 points is scored by those three home and away

    Prediction thread

    It's actually a difficult choice after Swindon finishing top with the current line up's. Below is a current line-up list and I've added a second list of predicted finishing positions after potential changes for injuries / sackings are considered. 1. Swindon 2. Wolves 3. Sheffield, King's Lynn, Belle Vue 4. Sheffield, King's Lynn, Belle Vue 5. Sheffield, King's Lynn, Belle Vue 6. Peterborough, Ipswich 7. Peterborough, Ipswich ___________________________________ 1. Swindon (always manage to find someone) 2. Wolves (like Swindon, 8/10 times find replacements) 3. Belle Vue (as above) 4. Ipswich (Louis will not allow Ipswich to finish bottom) 5. Sheffield (after the layout for Pedersen and Holder, any replacements will be bargain basement) 6. King's Lynn (Buster holds the purse strings, the excuses of nothing other than poor, low budget options will be available at the time) 7. Peterborough (see King's Lynn)

    Stars will need Lambert to average 9+ and Cook 8+ to even stand a chance for top 4. I disagree about the weakest team so far though, with completed teams I'd say Belle Vue are. Kildermand won't offer them anything and Kurtz as a No1? No thanks Most certainly underwhelming apart from Lambert and Cook
  14. Daniel Smith

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Correct, only due to an assessed average. Was on a regular basis beaten by opposition reserves. Just see Hartel as another Kasper Andersen I'm afraid.
  15. Daniel Smith

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    With what rider's that are yet unsigned (as far as we know) King's Lynn's choice is to go with a crap Ipswich Championship reserve in Hartel Even Simon Lambert would have been a better choice.

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    It's the way Buster likes to run things, crap in' it? Reminds me of the way the Glazers run Man Utd. Run by the commercial sponsors for the commercial sponsors. Fans, who are they?

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    But the rules don't say that. That's just interpretation again
  18. Daniel Smith

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    It is correct otherwise, by what you're interpreting it as, a rider can not sign for a Premiership club for the first week of the season then come in on his Championship average. As an example: Brian Bongo finished the previous Prem season on a 12.00 average. He also finished the Championship season on a 5.00 average. Misses the first week of the Premiership the following season so would come in on his Championship converted average?
  19. Daniel Smith

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    You are correct. It was his Championship average he came in on. Strangely though, the 2019 regulations didn't allow for that to be the case as he'd not missed the Premiership for more than 1 season. Rules had been wrongly interpreted as not having a current 2019 Premiership average for which he did. As the averages are rolling the final averages of 2018 would be the averages of 2019 so Cook had a current 2019 Premiership average and should have had that average. The fact that his Premiership average would have taken King's Lynn over the poinys limit would suggest someone may have helped themselves to an MC approval
  20. Daniel Smith

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Cook came in his existing Premier average
  21. Daniel Smith

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Can’t do that. Covatti would come in on what ever average is the highest between his current Premier or Championship converted average.

    Belle Vue Aces 2020

    Nonsense. Bewley needs to crack on or he'll become another 'what he could have been' rider. The example to look up to are the Pole's and Bewley and Robert Lambert are miles behind in comparison.
  23. Daniel Smith

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    It hasn't
  24. Daniel Smith

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    So it ain't Härtel then which is a bonus as he was awful for Ipswich at Championship level

    Anyone know if Scott has moved back to Suffolk after separating from Sofie?
