    Remember Hans Nielsen having some sort of ridiculous season with Oxford where I think he only got beaten a handful of times. Around about 1986/87 I think.

    Was about to say the very same. Obviously Buster and himself have cleared the air. Last I’d heard, they hadn’t spoken since the night of the Holder/Batchelor farce.

    Must be Rune Holta (the 46 year old Norwegian turned Pole)

    Would have much rather seen Aaron Summers or Josh Pickering take the final place. I'll reserve judgement on Hartel till at least he's had a chance to show what he can do, but overall doesn't look like a great side

    Tungate, Bech and Nicholls to finish the team?

    No - Kasper Andersen. Never looked comfortable at the AFA.

    Did Hartel do enough matches to become a Witches asset? Thought you had to ride a certain number of matches before a promotion could lay claim that he’s an asset. Something like 8 or 12 meetings springs to mind. No idea how many he rode but think he was dropped after getting injured fairly on in the season.

    Looks like Riss announced tomorrow, judging by the tease on social media.

    Put that on the Peterborough thread and you’ll probably be right.

    There's definite improvement in Lambert and Cook I reckon. Hopefully an injury free season will see Robert get back to nearer 9.00 than 8.00. Cook could well average over 8 as well. If it is Proctor at reserve as anticipated, I'd fancy him to put a point on his starting average as well. It's what happens in the engine room that will dictate our season I feel. We have to hope Riss, Jorgensen and Kerr offer improved performances away from home.

    While you and I are normally pretty much on the same page, think I'd disagree about last season's team. That side put together at the start of the season was awful. Jorgensen and Proctor had started to go off the boil away from home midway through the 2018 season. Only MPT's heroics saved us from a hammering at Belle Vue in the play off semi-final. The signs were there from the very start. Proctor should have never been given the second heat leader spot. Credit to the promotion for trying to change it up with signing Cook, but we were always playing catch-up. Time will tell but can't help shake the feeling that the same mistakes are being made again.
