  1. Leicester's Website doesn't yet provide a preview to tonight's meeting, so it just goes to show the interest shown from everyone. It's a racers track so maybe they can make a fist of it, Scotty has a point to prove after Monday night so if they can keep it within 6 I'd be chuffed. For me the season can't finish quick enough as it's quickly escalated downwards to being a massive disappointment when there was so much hope at the beginning. I feel the club, management, supporters & the riders have had no luck whatsoever. Not at anytime have all the riders been on it at the same time and Hans I feel the most sorry for as he's ridden brilliantly home & away, no question Rider of the Season. (But then he's entitled to be, because he's the only original member).

    Poole Pirates Vs Leicester Lions 25/7/18

    I really hate being the prophet of doom but unless the Lions can nullify Nicolai, I see this as yet another "proper tonking". Fingers crossed though and that the track's good (lmao) and the guys come to the fore. C'mon you Lions.

    OK thanks for pointing that out.

    One remaining rider from the start of the season, only one word necessary and that's ruthless. I personally think it's tough on Kristian but I totally get it given his dramatic loss in form & confidence. Scott Nichols always gives 100% and in bringing in Josh and Connor (great to see him given a chance) you've got two riders bang in form and should prove a much stronger reserve pairing. I wish Stuart Robson well, but I'm not convinced he's a number 2 but let's hope I'm proven wrong. Just one other point, Leicester from all accounts are slowly changing the track surface through adding more shale, is that going to best suit their new line-up or their opponents, because if they have riders who prefer it slick then surely they're handing the advantage to their opposition?

    Leicester v Poole. Prem. 9/7/18. BT sports.

    Klindt already on 11 points after 9 Heats Lions Reserves grand total 1. Says it all. I'd suggest Sarg needs to be looking over his shoulder..... if only there was someone on track behind him.

    Poole v Leicester Prem A. 30/5/18

    Am I the only one that was slightly relieved the fixture didn't go ahead, because I don't believe having Chris Harris at No. 1 would have brought the Lions many points? I take no pride in saying that as he's been a marvelous servant to British Speedway, however he just doesn't appear to be on it this season.

    This afternoon’s result has unfortunately shown that changes are necessary. Losing MV along with a number of injuries and absentees due to other commitments has completely disrailed the team. We are vunerable at reserve more than ever when the top 5 fail to score as hoped. Kyle is struggling in the No. 2 berth & should be back at 6. Kurtz is ok at 7, but Sarg should be doing better and has to go (sorry). Concerns still remain with the Captain, even though he’s just returned from injury.

    Premiership 23/04/18 - Leicester v Swindon

    Have to give credit where credit's due. Perfect Team Managership by Roscoe, knowing exactly who to use & when to use r/r's and t/s. The additional rides for Troy & Tobias helped tremendously.. I personally expected more from Kenneth but very early days to be fair to him, an encouraging debut from Todd, but I've huge concerns over Sarg. With Kyle moving to No.2 it's now really exposed the Lion's reserves should the top order not perform.
  9. I thoroughly agree. After all these delays & false starts the Lions now have a weakened team, not through Vaculik's injury but from MPT's, therefore unless Newman and particularly Sarj score heavily I can see a Rebels win.

    Has anyone heard who the Team Manger will be for the forth coming season? I'd personally love it if Steady would be prepared to double-up and travel down the M1 to us every Monday. He was a huge fans favourite as a rider.

    Really? I feel the Lion's Vaculik, Andersen, King & Pieszczek once dialed-in to the UK tracks are at least their equal. All obviously hypothetical at this juncture of course.

    Top final signing by the Lions. This is easily the most balanced lineup we've ever assembled so huge credit must go out to the management and with many of the riders knowing each other I'm hopeful team spirit will be really good. "Give us a L". If anyone should be dissatisfied at this lineup, then there's really no hope.

    I read that all seven rider suits are available for sponsorship and to own at the end of the season for a fee of £500. I only hope this season there isn't the usual merry go round of riders trying to squeeze into the same 7 kevlars.

    If Han's is confirmed then this is the strongest line-up the Lions have had in years, plus with the influx again of ex-bees riders there should be a lot of Coventry fans willing to come and see some top racing at Beaumont Park. (Shrewd move by the management & marketing Team imo).

    Totally agree, and is more than cable of mixing it up with the very best i.e. Jason Doyle etc. in Heats 13 & 15.
