    WOW! Well I'm sure it would depend how much they were offered AND how they were financially placed themselves at the time........so, no big deal....

    I if Cook and Jensen are in, which is looking very likely, then that ain't gonna happen Tigerforever......

    Basically the hate ball started rolling from November 14th on page 14 of this thread.....not pointing any fingers though.....lol Sad thing is, some naive people , who don't seem to realise that speedway is and always has been a ruthless and fickle game, are being caught up and getting too serious about the whole thing. Workington and Glasgow have had a good relationship in the past and this should be maintained. These political and managerial things happen.......let's get on with enjoying our speedway.

    Only thing worrying me is the NL average Joe Lawlor achieved this year (6.61) compared to the likes of Jack Thomas (8.44) and Jack Smith (8.41), both of whom had trouble at times with the pace in this league. Jack T to a lesser extent right enough and I'm sorry he's not returning if we're going down a low average reserve route.

    Very happy with that first signing....glad to see Claus back........

    I think Vissing comes in on a 6.94 average StepK........so if we had to run with this type of team make up, I'd probably have Sargeant back in place of Greaves as we don't know how he'll be after his injury and long spell out.

    Yes THJ, if the roles WERE reversed as you say, then Workinton would be the club with the larger sum of money to offer riders and would be doing EXACTLY the same.........let's not kid ourselves on that one. Lets face it, speedway has always been a ruthless and fickle game.....

    Not a bad looking team.....I would maybe want to replace James Sargeant with Jordan Stewart though. .....but who could be the alleged "poached" rider from Workington?......Rasmus Jensen???.....

    Even if Glasgow do choose to pay riders more than other teams, (not that you provide any proof, right enough)......what difference does it make to what other teams pay THEIR riders? Ok, riders can ask for more based on what they hear Glasgow are paying, but that doesn't mean the other promoters have to pay. What are the riders going to do?....stop riding? What Glasgow decide to pay only affects THEIR seven riders and maybe does some team or teams out of a desired signing (or seven) It's business in the private sector. Wages can and do vary by large margins between different employers for people expected to do the same job.

    Yeah, got to agree with you there LesR.....sign written van and all the latest gear make many of them think they are superstars from the off.

    My go.......just for fun. With Cookie......as it's been hinted he's a cert to sign.... Cook 10.45....Summers 7.18....Starke 5.88....Sargeant 4.16....Stewart 4.09....Mountain 3.57....Kemp 2.00 = 37.33 (options to have Bacon or Garcia in place of Sargeant) Cookieless..... Summers 7.18....Vissing 6.94....Kerr 7.18....Starke 5.88....Stewart 4.09....Mountain 3.57....Kemp 2.00 = 36.84 (options to have Allen, Palm Toft or Ellis in place of Kerr) I think the bottom three should all make good progress next year. I also realise that every promoter and their granny's will be wanting to sign Kemp. I have some other names that I fancy but feel there may be a lesser chance of them signing and/or moving clubs i.e. Jensen, Pickering, Heeps, Etheridge and Wilson-Dean.
