    Ipswich 2019

    Speedway may be a numbers game when putting sides together but this starting 7 certainly won’t be the finishing 7 IMHO. Harris is on an inflated average that sees him ride at #1 - a position he has never really excelled at and there are a few riders that to find some consistency - Lawson, King (returning from injury), Bellego and Heeps (who had a very poor season at Wolves). I can see this team dropping about 2-3 points collectively in the first month.
  2. The problem is that you need to use it or run the risk of losing it - that's the standard line. It is actions like this that drive more fans away from a sport that is "dying on its @rse". So rather than encourage new fans they p!ss off existing fans - not a great business model
  3. That would be a stupid thing for Harris to do - given the only places left are all Buster's clubs! I'm sure he would rather be riding and earning than watching - assuming the terms are right.
  4. Peterborough were looking like the team to beat and really sorry to read that they have released Harris. I wonder who they will bring in to replace him that is cheaper than him on a similar average? Nicholls to Peterborough and Harris to Ipswich? Or is that two (heat leader) Brits on the sidelines when the season starts?

    Probably same reason as Nicholls
  6. Never a good idea to let attention seeking trolls start threads. Such a childish thing to do

    Thanks for clarifying - maybe one of the rules they have changed?

    Why? Sheffield now run on a Sunday afternoon as they are not a PL club

    NBJ - 2 points on his average?? Are you having a giraffe?

    There is nothing wrong with me but if you go about calling people names and insulting them rather then debate then you have already lost the argument

    Not that you are biased! What team has signed Lidsey? #enuffsaid

    Wolves 2019

    I think the same reason as Thorsell and Kurtz - riding at number 1 puts a lot of pressure on a rider and they just weren’t ready. Plus, he seemed to no longer like the Swindon track and that affected his confidence. I am still surprised that Rosco let him go on that bargain average and I am sure Wolves will benefit from signing him.

    Eastbourne are in the CL next season aren’t they?

    Belle Vue 2019

    One name - Jason Doyle! Proves anything is possible - eventually - with the right attitude, training and dedication.

    Swindon - towards the end of Gary Patchett’s era

    Poole 2019

    Surely as a Poole asset and the fact that Poole intended using him, he didn't have permission to speak to any other clubs!

    Poole in poaching rider shocker - not as if they haven’t done it before - several times!

    You can have a wooden spoon this year to go with your paper trophies

    Wolves 2019

    He hasn’t ridden here in years and was last at Peterborough if I remember correctly for a short stint. I’d be surprised if the loan fees covered his “purchase”. A bit like Poole investing in Magic who doesn’t want to ride here - what a poor deal that was - especially as Doyley is still riding here and a better rider than him this last few years. Would be good to see Nikki riding again in the UK - everyone loves a villain - but can’t see it ever happening again.
  23. Not contrived at all - you have been telling several people to block you if you didn’t like their response and coming across all angry. its Christmas- chill!

    Wolves 2019

    Yet Masters was picked twice ahead of Max for the SGP wild card! They are both good riders of similar abilities - but you seem unwilling to accept that. Anyway - Doyley is better than both of them
  25. Steve0

    Wolves 2019

    Yet Masters gets the SGP pick ahead of Fricke for 2 years in a row? I would say that they are about the same level with Max still expected to improve while Masters has probably reached his level.
