    Wolves 2019

    Luke Becker leaving the sunshine in the next few days to get ready for the new season and if Greg joins Wroclaw no doubt he will be there testing with Greg and Magic helping out.
  2. HEAT LEADERS - If you count the top three as heat leaders or the top two it depends how a team is balanced. It was usual for teams to have a strong top two backed up by two very good 7-8 point men then a number two and a reserve around 5-6 that could swap and change with a filler at number six. Some went with three big hitters and the other places divided to grab third places and heat wins so having the best heat leaders isn't the be all and end all as Poole proved last season as they went into the play offs with no rider over 7 points a match but a solid team. As it is, Kings Lynn and Swindon have the two big names left here in Lambert and Doyle but that's where the similarities end as Stars look to have little to back up Lambert in big races while Swindon have a good top three with Batchelor and Musielak both capable of double figures in most meetings. Swindon therefore have the best heat leader trio. Wolverhampton have the best top four and all could score heavily in meetings leaving the other three to pick up vital third places but they need Howarth to return to form and Becker be a hit straight off or improve as the year goes on. Ipswich do appear weak but Piezscek is no mug and could be a suprise while King is useful if he is fit to return to his old form and Bellego also gets scoring. This could give them a strong middle order and reserves aren't too bad but obviously lack the big guns. Peterborough may not seem too good but they have a decent top three and then four back ups who can all score the points expected so I see them as either dominant or weak each time and only time will tell. As it stands, Swindon and Wolves look good even with a long tail and Belle Vue could be up there if Bjerre is back on form and Lidsey becomes a superstar while Poole are solid from 1-7 but like Peterborough they all need to score what's expected consistently. HEATLEADERS - Swindon & Wolves MIDDLE ORDER - Belle Vue, Swindon, Poole & Wolves RESERVES - Poole and Belle Vue

    Kings Lynn 2019

    Kings Lynn, Ipswich and Peterborough look the three weakest at the moment but a few swaps or changes mid season could see one of them finish strongly and with mid table getting you in the play offs anything could happen.

    Kings Lynn 2019

    Wooden spoon winners sorted for this year as they look way weaker than anyone else

    Who has the strongest top 3 riders??

    Poole won last year with a solid line up which proved invaluable but the back up to the top two is vital as is a good reserve and if you look at number fours, Nick Morris at Wolves has to be the strongest by some way . However it's also important to have a bargain in there and Kyle Howarth at Wolves, Ricky Wells at Belle Vue and again Morris and Thorssell at Wolves look to be on modest averages. New faces in Lidsey at Belle Vue and Becker at Wolves could be bargains and Lampart at Swindon could be a bargain in some opinions as could Bjerre at Aces. As as for stronger top three, will agree with Swindon but strongest top four and most potential look to be Wolves

    BSPA Message to Fans (imo)

    Advance tickets via the club costs more than buying on the date. should these not be cheaper ?

    Premiership fixtures

    Peterborough and Belle Vue will have completed half their home matches before Kings Lynn have done their first and Stars have six matches right at the end. Double headers anyone and unevenly balanced averages Peterborough also have no home fixtures during the school term holidays

    2019 Predictions

    Let's face it with four of the seven making the play offs anyone could be crowned champions but Wolves look solid with a good top four and a good number two in Howarth on a very modest average as is Nick Morris and Jacob Thorssell. Becker at reserve should settle in well and Morris very capable at home. Swindon look decent and should be up there while Poole will ways be in the running and think Nicolai Klindt has become a solid rider and could take over as the number one or challenge Brady Kurtz who is on a modest average. Not too sure on Belle Vue as Bewley back from injury may take time, Bjerre could be a bargain or a disaster and hope Worrall gets back to the form he can be on. Wells is a great signing and Fricke a good number one. JAIMON Lidsey is one to watch and will get some fans around the NSS. Ipswich look ok at home but away should struggle while Peterborough could be the same but see who they get in the space. Kings Lynn shocked me last year and will again if they make the play offs with Lambert running a one man battle. Let's see what movement happens during the season at the Anglian triangle as riders averages go down in some cases and maybe swap places before the play offs ?

    Premiership fixtures

    Fixtures - Same six opponents at least twice spread over a whole season with only three teams missing the play offs. Well Exciting isn't it ?

    Wolves 2019

    Would you not consider Pawlicki as a rider that is a true number one and a rider capable of winning big races away.

    Wolves 2019

    He was 7,03 when he rode for Wolves in 2016 and in those meetings he rode his actual average has therefore gone up due to those scores so 7.03 is not even a true figure. That at said he won't be returning even if he was 3.07 as he is not interested It's not so much the expense as they know they wouldn't get anything like the money they get in Poland, it's more to do with the tracks here not being up to standard. However Pawlicki has just Poland and if he returned here it would be to get meetings under his belt as he admitted he needed more meetings.

    Ipswich 2019

    Is that the same Allen that will be wearing a big number seven on the South Coast ?

    Poole 2019

    Strange 1-7 and no Woryna who can improve on 6.30 but maybe it's not their choice. Two solid reserves in Covati and Allen and in Holder and Kurtz they have two that are moving up well. Klindt and Grajczoneck steady back up with Worrall possibly dropping to reserve mid season. Would expect a change or two mid season to keep them in play offs

    Wolves 2019

    If Pawlicki is on an 8.00 then Greaves doesn't fit but Tom Bacon does and there is no indication he is getting a PL spot so far

    Belle Vue 2019

    His year at Rezszow obviously hasn't worked riding big tracks and he did OK passing Batchelor at Leszno in the SWC
