    Kings Lynn 2019

    You’re right Mike - and your first paragraph hits the nail on the head - it was aimed at some of the Kings Lynn ‘fans’. The purpose of my proposed bet was to see if any of these people who are adamant that Kings Lynn will collect the wooden spoon (or to be battling with Ipswich to avoid this) would be brave enough to ‘put their money where their mouth is’ and, unsurprisingly in my view, nobody has taken up the opportunity. The bet was simple - Kings Lynn succeed and these people would £50 to the BEN fund - a price worth paying. If they don’t succeed, I would pay £50 to the BEN fund and all these negative people ‘win’ as they could take great pleasure in saying ‘I told you so’ along with Speedway benefitting from the great work the BEN fund do. Ultimately, it was the long winded way to get to the point that, no matter what is offered, you will never please everybody. I said a few months ago, people would moan if we signed Woffinden, Zmarzlik & Dudek, and I stick by that. Drop the negative attitude, get behind the sport and the team, and lets actually look forward to the 2019 season, I for one can’t wait - if the predictions are right for the remaining team spots, it will be a team of triers and a team I think the fans can connect with. Putting my tin hat firmly on now . . .

    I will restrict it to 10, but a worthy cause for the money to go to if anybody is happy to accept.

    Blind faith perhaps!

    I think the stars will make the play offs next season. I know there’s plenty of people who’ll disagree - I’ll happily wager £50 with anyone who disagrees, losers money to the Ben fund - I’ll happily put my money where my mouth is ...... of course if it works both ways ......

    Reading the speedway star and I hope it works out. Wonder if Eddie Kennett is still demanding £1500 appearance fee as per Rye House last year . . .
  6. Appreciate the advice, will look into these locations. Frustratingly, Due to work commitments, I have to fly from my local airport for this one (Norwich, UK) with a change in Amsterdam en route - not the easiest so praying for a dry weekend and good racing!
  7. After some advice if possible, I have tickets to Malilla, and I'm flying into Vaxjo airport, but I'm not sure where to stay? Plenty of places to stay near the airport but I understand its nearly an hour and a half away - Any suggestions halfway/Closer to Malilla? Thank you.

    Crazy! Any ideas on what Harris would’ve been earning? Presume he must be Ipswich bound now.

    Looks like you’ll be getting Bomber!

    My guess for tomorrow is Erik Riss. If that’s right, are they naming the 1-7 in order?

    I agree with this - I think this would be the team but I too would feel more comfortable with Auty over Anderson if the averages fit. With respect to Proctor - I really believe he will put close to a point on his average and be around 7.5 - His attitude seems to be spot on, changed clubs in the Championship for more stability - I think it will be a big year for him and will surprise a lot of people.

    Appreciate your comments, I don't believe age has anything to do with it but whilst we're on the topic - I'm 27 and have been watching Lynn most weeks since I was 6, so 2 decades worth i think qualifies me to comment. Alongside being a Stars fan, I'm also a Norwich City fan who have also never, even won the 'main' trophy. Whats the difference between the two? Communication I appreciate is not as good as other sports, but what do you want the Club to say? If they announce the team now in 1 hit, would we not have the same feeling you mention, because there would be nothing to talk about in January, February and Early March until the season begins? Again, I may be wrong but I can't really say I've noticed a difference in the time a meeting takes to run from when I first understood times etc in early teens to now - and I travel now 138 mile round trip to watch the Stars, as opposed to around 90 when i first started going. I was speaking to someone involved in Speedway yesterday and we were discussing how to improve the sport and he raised a great point. He said that if we asked 100 people how to 'solve' speedway, and he felt there would be 100 different answers, and that multiple answers would contradict others - so how DO you keep everyone happy? Simple answer is, you can't! Prices on everything in every walk of life has gone up over the years, including my NCFC season ticket (Which has gone up by around 18% in the last 5 years) so I'm sorry, but I don't buy this argument that the prices have gone up by £1 or £2 as a reason why people don't go. Not intended to ruffle feathers at all, but my view is that so many people are enjoying predicting the death of British Speedway, that when it inevitably happens, these same people can take joy in saying I told you so.

    Some of the teams mentioned might not whet the appetite of everyone - but I think if Lynn announced a top 3 of Woffinden, Zmarlik and Dudek, there would still be moaners. Lets remember that the majority of people predicted Lynn would finish with the wooden spoon with last years team, and whilst there were a few changes, remember how that one panned out? This negativity does nobody any favours - how about getting behind the team once it’s announced and see how far they can take it again? Also, a question for those who no longer attend regularly - what would make you come back? A winning side, competitive racing or both?

    Wouldn’t be upset at all to see Jorgensen back to be honest. I’ve got a sneaky feeling Ty Proctor will really kick on a couple of levels next season if he remains with Lynn - time will tell! Any news on when there will actually be some news?!
