  1. Premiership 23/04/18 - Leicester v Swindon

    Agree with this. Track far too dry again. Scoreline made it interesting. Swindon very good and batchelor and museilak in a different class.

    Kenneth Bjerre and Todd Kurtz in for vaculik and MPT.

    I agree a replacement will be needed and I do have faith for once in what the promotion are doing. From what I see I don't see any mileage in chopping either HA, KP, DK and KN. None of those will reduce their average this year and are the backbone of a very good side. JS will be around his average but I don't see real value in getting a lower rider in which leaves Josh Bates. Chopping a family member I can't see happening and would weaken us a reserve if we need to find big points to play with. Interesting times
  4. Tremendous result but wasn't a good meeting. Somerset were poor, track was very dry, meeting long and drawn out which wasn't helped by lengthy waiting for tapes to be released which was instrumental in 4 warnings and 5 or so restarts. All 6 lions were good but Lambert, Newman, Pieszczek and in particular Anderson were superb.

    Not sure I like the sound of the jigsaw. I like the shape of our current 6 and would be disappointed to have to chop one to fit another in.
  6. Leicester Lions 2018

    Palm Toft confirmed as temporary replacement.

    If there is a 28 day facility then it is madness not to use it. Rushing back after 17 days and being behind fitness wise or using facility and JB coming back fitter after 28 days . What is best for team is to utilise facility. What is best for JB is to use facility. USE THE FACILITY. Only issue is keeping finances in JB 's pocket.....
  8. MV - disappointed but will be fine. First race left bend 2 couple of bike lengths in front. Turned away and then Doyle was in front. DK - very good but should never appear in ht15 despite how good he appears earlier. Can see him adding to his average and slamming a few 5-1's in with KP KP - started off ok and got better and better. Took some adjusting to the man hole cover on turns 3-4 but then was excellent. HA - was excellent. KN - not far off the pace JS - similar to Newman. Not sure he's worth his average but was there or there abouts. Hopefully bit of improvement will see him support Newman. RR - seems not strong enough with JS and KN. KP improvement could be damage limitation. All in all a reasonable showing with scope to improve

    Looks like it's Lasse given his recent tweet. Pleased with that.

    Got to like the work that has been done at Beaumont Park this winter. It is nice to be thought of as being competitive.
  11. Leicester Lions 2018

    Lions confirmed on twitter that MV is 8 and KP is 6.50. Leaves 7.15 if JS is 3.81
  12. Leicester Lions 2018

    Take it back... I calculate at 3.81 for JS it leaves 7.65 left. DK 6.66 KN 4.86 JB 5.52 MV 8 KP 6 JS 3.81 Gives 34.85

    Sign for 2 clubs, express happiness and desire for next season, then set up new website and new merchandise and announce retirement before letting Sheffield and Leicester know. Would have thought it would be a hack but.. Flip side Leicester were looking into it almost an hour ago. I would have thought a hack would have resulted in immediate notification from club which hasn't happened. Doesn't quite add up as I'm sure Leicester and DB would be able to contact him quickly to dismiss the suggestion. With that in mind it may be true and all are establishing the facts and reasons. If so surprised he didn't tell clubs. #Confused

    I still don't quite get how DH has retained the asset list in the sale and would have wanted Wozniak back. However and in defence of DH, wasn't it suggested that by selling to Buster and then to DB that they managed to "do" DH out of fees or get it a sale at a reduced price? If so I fail to see why DH would fall over himself to allow Leicester to use Wozniak at a reduced rate. If that was the case (I have no knowledge but am sure I remember someone saying it) then it is a case of what goes around comes around. If I found out that I had been shafted in a business deal I wouldn't help those out and accept the reduced rate and would certainly maximize the fee. If that prices out Leicester and means he goes to Poole who are prepared to pay the fee then so be it.

    As expected, Josh Bates returns
