Or possibly this was the deal struck, being the reason why Monday and Wednesday  were chosen:unsure:

I doubt it. Monday and Wednesday, when Denmark have precedence, were chosen to overcome the problem when the Thursday CL clubs either didn't want to join the PL or, to change their race night. I don't blame them at all for that unless they had previously agreed that they would.

Ekstraliga Żużlowa removes the limit limiting the starts of players to three leagues. In return, the English federation will make Thursday available to us, in other words its day in the Speedway Slot System, if it is necessary to postpone the play-off round matches.

Done and dusted Linus and Shanes confirmed now because limit has been lifted and all of this actually hurts Swindon. 

Fantastic news :D. Just saw full article on the main POL Speedway site.

The good news is that to my knowledge none of our riders are constrained by having commitments in DK on Wed. Maybe also a factor had we signed HA as I am sure he does his compliment of DK fixtures.

A decent side for sure to watch in 2018.

Wow! That's got to be the team to beat this year. If the Pole's perform as Matt and Middlo hope, and Holder makes a bit of a comeback, we should be near untouchable.

Poole should have had Hans and Shanes........instead they could get shafted

I would agree but probably Sundstrom has more potential to improve his average and now confirmed that we can proceed with signing him now they have lifted the 3 league rule.

Only on paper at the moment just like last year untouchable better to wait and see I think

Sundstrom, Woryna and Szczepeniak I'd have question marks over just for the fact they've either not ridden here for a while and/or have never showed anything over here previously. However, if they show their form from abroad Poole will get close.

Excellent news! Only affects Swindon if there are playoff clashes so that can be worked around.

Welcome to Poole Linus and welcome back Shansey!

What. a. Team!

If as it seems only play off clashes then Swindon should be ok and possibly only have to change a few meetings.

Powerhouse lineup.  Once the new lads get dialled in they should dominate. No weak links and even our number 7 is stronger than some other sides number 6. And if Shansey does find it tough at certain tracks we have a rock solid number 6 to cover.

Last season I felt the team had journeymen happy with their position in a heat after the second bend. Matt Ford has tried to eradicate this issue and bring in a team of racers. Riders who are not happy to settle for a point but want to score more.

Happy days.

I don’t think Poole choke very often. We had injuries which wrecked our chances in 2016 and a number 1 in 2017 who made himself look a pillock with his attitude.

We could be back to business as usual in 2018 with that lineup, baring injuries of course.

I for one think it was the right call to replace Hans, who on his day is very good but is now journeyman personified, cramming in as many meetings as possible. Don’t blame him of course but by doing so he rides within himself so to avoid injury and time out. Not what we need in 2018.

No doubt that Darcy was more talented on a bike than Ivan. If he hadn't had it taken away from him I'm sure he'd have been world champ time and time again.
