    Temporary Plan for 2021?

    If rider numbers are an issue, rather than fiddling with league structures and limiting teams, the only sensible option in my opinion would have to be 6 man teams. Double up/down should still be an option, but limited to one or two per team at most (or injury cover). Surely the powers to be should looking to start at beginning of April after the current restrictions are due to end, with some kind of small tournament for April. Leagues to start in May. If restrictions drag on past the start of April, then scrap the 'small tournament' - although that should be a last resort as riders will be in dire need of track time to get back up to speed. And they should be lobbying our parliament representative NOW so that speedway can hit the ground as soon as is possibly allowed. Crowd numbers in stadia are unlikely to be an issue going on last Octobers guidelines

    Where is it going to be built? On the centre grey or in the car park behind the stadium...?

    Should we change our nickname from stars to the 'Brady Bunch'

    Isn't it boring on here now we know our team?!

    Out team is built to the team average allowed this season, so in theory is no stronger or weaker than any other team. All teams have strengths and weaknesses through their teams, I'm not sure there is a clear favourite at the moment. Yes it depends on how each rider goes and you would hope our top two do the business more regularly than last season. That takes the pressure off the bottom end a little, hopefully enable them to score better... If it goes pear shaped early doors then the promotion need to be more on the ball than last season when changes were made way too late. Top 4 out of 7 should be achievable, then it's anyone's guess. .

    So, when do we get the final piece of the team jigsaw announced?

    Beat me to it! Is he related to Ali Bongo? He might be a magic signing if that's the case!

    Think that's Cookie as well, mind you I mistook Schroek for Riss the other week, so not sure I can be trusted!

    Peter Schroek now saying we need to give more British youngsters a chance. I read that as we'll have a youngster at no. 7, not necessarily a very experienced one, which maybe means not Cookie....or we will be understrength before we even start

    But I like the idea of 5% reduction! Would give British riders even better chance of team places. Always felt 2.5% was a bit low

    Not SL please! He'll get zero points away and on a good day will pick up a few at home. I'm no expert, but he's still not mastered the art of sliding a bike round a corner. Goodness only knows how he has eke'd out a career so long

    Riss did look slow towards end of season, but put that down to loss of his no.1 bike, and others not being quite as quick. I think it'll be Harris plus a suprise signing. Would give us a solid look

    Basically a good shape, but do think a bit of extra width in the bends (and hence slightly shorter straights) would help.....
