    I see Bjarne Pedersen is riding in the ben fund meeting without having a team place. Maybe he is a b choice? Whats his average. Is it Championship league friendly too? Just weird riding in a meeting with not having a team place? Unless us kings lynn fans are getting a little over enthusiastic expecting to have niels announced at our fans meeting.

    The news has sunk in now. Both reserves should be good for 6s and 7s, rose 5-6, lambert 9+ Niels 10+ leaves tj and proctor to get about 10 between them. For me they are the pivotal guys in the team. If they ride well we win meetings.

    My grammar was everywhere too! So no worries!!!
  4. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Not drank for 7 years but signing Proctor . . . . Maybe it's time to start again! P.s smolinski isn't a suggestion!!!!! It was sarcasm!
  5. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Is this proctor and rose news legit?
  6. Kings Lynn 2018..

    I loved the look of proctor when he first came over. He really looked like a guy going places. A few years back this would have been a good signing. What happened with him though? Was it a big injury? Ill get behind. Lynn is my team and it's important to support the team. At the end of last season though I expected many of that team to be back. Kai thj and toft tj , A number 1 and a replacement for lambert who has stayed. I could even understand if the team buster went for had the likes of Harris, barker, garity, you know. Battlers. As part of the new era. Riders judged by more than average and ability. kinda scratching my head a bit. I'm not going to be negative. Just going to take some digesting though. . . Smolinski as number 1. Anything better will be a bonus. We have the 2 Lewis 's and lambert. That's pretty cool. We have Niels possibly too. What is awesome after the rock star flop we signed last year. Made you appreciate what we had in Niels. as for the rest . . . . Give them a chance. Im not expecting a title challenge but for a few seasons we have had good teams and it's not worked out. At least there isn't going to be those expectations. It's better to fall from a low height. Hurts less

    Piotr pawlicki could be an option maybe. Seemed he was open to the idea of riding in the uk. Freddie lindgren. Aj. zagar. The 1 over 8 rule has meant there are riders still out there. Could go for stronger riders than the Dane people are talking about and manzarez. It's not ideal but maybe for example lambert, toft, jorgensen, worrall, gomolski, Kerr, rose not ideal though

    Im a bit disappointed he hasn't towed the company line. At the end of the season he was pretty open about wanting to move on. He could have handed in a request then. Mind you 12 months is along time and should he have a good season he may choose to stay on if all these other things work out. The article is slap in the face in terms of the media plan for the promotion too. If the ink isn't dry we should maybe reconsider. thinking who else is about though, kk? Zengotta? Sundstrom? When you think of it like this. The 1 over 8 rule isactually a hindrance when you think of the guys who could have been available, in a parallel universe 1 from Swindon, 1 from Poole if the magic rumours were true. Possibly 3 from wolves if pp woffy Freddie and Jacob were all in uk speedway. The riders available could have been holder, batch, Schlien, bjerre, . . . Funny really. Bjarne Pedersen name your price (I gist)

    Speedway can be quite predictable at times!!!! With him you never knew what was going to happen. If he was behind you knew he could pass when he was in front you knew he could cock up! Entertaining! I get why people wouldn't like him. But those people shouldn't then moan about a lack of entertainment. Because he was very entertaining!
  10. Kings Lynn 2018..

    He really splits oppinion!! I loved him. Mental style!!!

    Or get a job outside of speedway. If you enjoy it you make it work. Surely?
  12. Joe Jacobs

    Not being funny but id expect riders who aren't championship league heat leaders to have to have jobs outside of speedway to make it pay. i do feel sorry for joe jacobs as a 24 yo english lad not getting a ride. Announcing retirement though makes me question how much he really wanted it! If you want it enough then you don't quit. Its ok to not want it! but if he had to he could have rode nl and waited for an opportunity. as long as he was close to breaking even then he could have rode himself into a team place.

    If he feels he has to prove himself then it will be a great signing. If he feels he is doing Poole a favour and turns up like a rock star like he did at lynn then a rotten apple will ruin the bunch. He made me question my love for speedway last year and that was before you guys beat us in that meeting. I was looking at it thinking this guy is being paid a fortune for what. He was constantly out classed. Often riding with lewis rose you would question who was the senior. People kept saying he'd come good but it was never going to happen. Maybe going back to Poole on less money and it being left late too will give him the realisation that he's not all that great and he has to prove himself to himself. If so then maybe he will average over 8
  14. Kings Lynn 2018..

    I'd have had him, lambert and a number 1 as my 3 main signings and worked the rest around that!
  15. Kings Lynn 2018..

    This 1 over 8 rule. Does anybody know if 8.00 is over 8. I know Poole had Bjarne one year because of this and 8.01 was the important number
