    In theory, but in reality not everyone could afford them.
  2. 'They have very little to even challenge Glasgow or Lakeside'. What does that even mean?
  3. Kings Lynn 2018..

    I don't think he is better than them in the Premiership personally, maybe the Championship due to his extra experience of those tracks. Yes they are both club assets and local lads, products of the Young Stars in fact. I don't think it's a particularly awkward figure to accommodate, plenty of teams could have fitted him in if they wished.

    He's not in the top five because he is on a four point average. Nobody knows if he will be any good but he is at an age where he is likely to improve and somebody must have seen some potential in him to sign him. Not going to get into the Auty debate again as we'll never agree. But I'd suggest that the fact that nobody has signed him on a 4.68 probably says it all.
  5. You have to be honest and say what you see though, whoever you support. On paper we look one of if not the weakest side, but that could all change once the action starts. I don't feel miserable about it, if anything it takes the pressure off the team and will make good results during the season sweeter. How we feel as Lynn fans through the season will be determined by on track results and not pre season predictions.
  6. If you think Somerset look better than Belle Vue or Leicester you are extremely biased!
  7. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Certainly take your point and in hindsight I'd agree with you but I'd imagine very few people foresaw how good Musielak was going to be last year for Swindon. Of course your two Poles may not live up to expectations but their achievements abroad suggest they will make a mockery of their starting averages. The point is they are far better riders than when they last rode here. And to quote you lot anyone could have signed Musielak
  8. Why would his heart not be in it? Has always given his all in the UK. The potential weaknesses in the Lynn team are elsewhere, Puk will be fine assuming he has recovered from injury properly. Looking at the other heat leaders around the league he should rack up plenty of points.
  9. Iversen not a big hitter? Poole Belle Vue Leicester Swindon Somerset Wolves Rye House King's Lynn That's not me being negative, just judging what I see on paper. Hopefully it will be way out ie Lynn surprise us all and Poole implode
  10. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Take your point and don't necessarily disagree but the reason Poole are head and shoulders above the rest is the failure to reassess riders accurately. Things would be much more even had that been done.
  11. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Silly to suggest that any team 'aims to come bottom' but the team is obviously built to a tight budget. Would rather be a big fish in a little pond than the other way round but it is what it is and we'll see how things go. Nobody fancied Swindon this time last year, and I'm not for a minute suggesting this team will win the title, but it could do better than many think if a couple of riders have a breakthrough season. I also accept that most people will think this is the eighth best team in the league, up to the club to prove them wrong.
  12. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Because he is never going to get any better and a new young rider like Andersen has potential to be much better than his assessed average.
  13. Is it just me who finds people who hold grudges several years later irritating? Also please let me know which second division teams that Tungate, Fricke, Vaculik, Pieszczek, Andersen, Iversen, Doyle, Batchelor, Thorsell, Kasprzak, Kurtz, Woryna, Szczepaniak, Holder, Jeppersen, Andersen, Lambert, Cook, Bellego, Masters and Musielak are riding for this year as I think I must have missed it
  14. Poole 2018

    This team has the potential to blow everybody away and win the league at a canter but I'd suggest there are enough question marks over various riders to not give them the trophy just yet.
  15. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Bit over the top. Good news it is though, and proof that all the whittling and worrying people did over the winter was unnecessary.
