  1. Two more riders added to the line up tonight!

    I guess because the pieces written by the team managers and promoters are so out of date a few weeks down the line?

    But every promotion is surely striving for more than hard-core? We all know r/r works well most of the time if you have a balanced side, it's when you have more than one rider injured that it's more difficult ....

    So they were very lucky for 3 seasons and maybe a fourth ..... that's about right

    Were they just lucky? How often did they win the league in that time?

    It all depends how many of your riders get injured at any one time doesn't it ..... of course if you can cover with r/r and your own riders it can work well but you need luck ie the rider you lose can be covered by strong team members, you have a strong number 6 etc .....

    I have known many times teams missing more than one rider. If speedway remains relatively poor and we want to keep teams reasonably level in strength I cannot think of another answer. Take Lynn in the 2018 playoff final against Poole, lose NKI to injury before the first leg and in that meeting MPT gets injured

    So you have 3 injuries, your number one, 3 and 4, you have a number 8 to use, is that it then, no guests? Or could each team nominate 2 unattached riders from a lower league and you have to use them against a top of the table team with no injuries. Foregone conclusion, fan turnout halved? The way to go?

    It definitely hasn't, I used to work at the Marsham Arms in front of it and go past it on each trip to Norwich.

    What is the alternative if your number one or more riders are injured which often happens, go into a meeting with 4 team members and a number 8?

    Because the BV rider is injured (it's a dangerous sport and to give fans value for money team strength is all important) and this guy is guesting ..... perfectly understandable! Then the spiel goes speedway is nothing like any other team sport, it's not got the money to have 'reserves' of all qualities akin to football so guest riders for top men is the way it has to be organised otherwise the team with am injured rider would 100% lose, the fans wouldn't turn up for an uncompetitive meeting, it can't survive without fans, the club would shutdown!

    He ought to have his average raised to be fair to the rest of the league, 12 . It's peed me off for years that he's not thought racing in the UK important, I'm surprised he's lowering himself now, sounds like it's at huge cost though!

    To use the riders you want and not just someone who fits? There's always options during the season anyway, as u know ...
