Im not going over old ground. I know the Loram family and i know exactly what went on. Mark wasnt impressed with what Norrie did, but Tony was offered and paid more than Mark including transport. The way Norrie tried to negotiate didnt sit well with Matt Ford and quite rightly he turned elsewhere.

I cant prove facts to you but Tony was on more than Mark was offered. Mark never had an issue with Matt hence his farewell meeting was there but Matt and Norrie didnt see eye to eye

 

Anyway this is the Wolves thread so apologies

Funny that, Norrie chats openly to Matt when Leicester come down in Matts office, and had long in depth chat with him the night Somerset won the league just the sort of thing i would expect from you.Think that answers your question... :icon_smile_clown:

 

Sorry Wolves fans you can have your thread back. :t:

I don't understand why people think Klindt is going to make a mockery of his average. His average went up in the EL because his home track was a gater's paradise and he's a gating tart. He averaged over eight at home and about five away, take him away from a track like Leicester and he's going to average between 5-6, that's why his average riding for Scunthorpe isn't higher.

He averaged 6 last year. Riding in the EL which was a higher standard than the Premiership. Riding pre dominantly as hl in a format which pitted him pre dominantly against other hl.

He should put at least a point on his average this year, whereas most other riders will drop a point. Basically he's a couple of points better than any other rider on a comparable average.

Gating is important anywhere

And always has been. That's why Ivan won the world champs 6 times and greg 4 times, whereas pc and gollob won it once each.

Gating is important but more so at certain tracks. The racing at Monmore isn't as good as it used to be but it is far from being a gaters paradise.

 

PC would probably have won again in 1977 but for breaking his leg so badly the week before the final. He still finished second to Ivan.

Agree totally on the first point. But a rider who can gate is still going to do fine at wolves or poole.

 

of course pc made 5 gates that night in the wet in 77.

And back to the Wolves team building Klindt was supposed to be the next big thing to come out of Denmark when he first came over here didn"t really live up to that we have been more than happy not to have him in the team seasons gone bye so why now just because his average is right no not for me i"m sure there are better up and coming riders out there who could do just as good a job.

Howarth and Clegg confirmed.

Clegg is a very good signing.

 

18.57 left for the final 3 riders so looking good. Will Masters be added

Will be amazed if Matsers isn't in! Will leave around 9.60 for final 2 riders. Surprised to see Howarth on that average. Wells may of been a better option.

I tend to agree, never really thought much of Klindt and although his average looks low he is still a risk.

Kilndt on a five point average is no risk at all. Look at the comparable riders; Bager, Jacobs, Stefan Nielsen etc. He averaged over five as a heat leader last year in the EL. Yes, he's a bit of a gater, but I'd expect him to be somewhere between second string and third heat leader, depending on what his home track is.

I hope I'm proved wrong but I cannot see Kyle Howarth maintaining or improving his average and so his signing appears to be a big gamble. Still think Ty Proctor would have been a better option, but we need 2 Brits I suppose so that's probably part of the reason.

 

My only concern is that Sam Masters has not yet been announced and he's now back to Australia for our winter.....

So that's our 2 Brits named in one go.

Howarth is a bit of a risk on that average however probably the best option of british riders on a similar average.

Clegg has more than earned his call up again after improving as the season progressed.

I'm hoping he will start as 7th Averaged rider tho.
