Didn't Holder get banned from Speedway in the UK for 9 months mid August last year after the Lynn fiasco?!!!..... That would make it about mid May before he could race again, is this why he hasn't raced yet for Poole or was that punishment quashed? 

Was reduced.

Just read the article on the Echo website. 

Matt has lost his balls. Can anyone honestly see Szczepaniak putting in a performance at Rye House?

I think your description of Shovlar, first time around, was actually about right.  

You just cannot help yourself can you. Small wonder why i do not reply to posters like you, and many others on here.

Mike,

you have gone through a very difficult time in the last 6 months. I am sure the doctors do not want you at all stressed. Stress is very bad for anyone, especially so with someone recuperating from a serious head operation. 

This forum is full of banter and bullies and is perhaps not the best place to spend time if you get at all stressed. Time out away from here might make you feel better and your health will improve because of it.  Absolutely no point in getting wound up on posts by people you don’t know.  

You don’t have to react to every post. It will do you more harm than good.

Holder's ban and fine were reduced on appeal to the ACU. However I'm not sure how much of a reduction there was?

Originally I believe he would have been eligible to start racing again from mid April - but surely he would have to have a relevant work visa to be able to do that?!

As I've said previously, maybe he had to come back to the UK on a visitor visa and he wouldn't have been able to start the work permit/visa application until after his ban was finished.

I don't know enough about the visa application process, but presumably it may be possible for somebody to object to one being issued?! Any objection could be speedway-related or something else entirely, couldn't it?! Either way its Chris's business and Matt Ford is fully in the picture so watch this space.

 

Meanwhile we wait till the whole current 1-7 have got new averages - those already on rolling averages and those that still need to complete 4xHome and 4xAway - to see what changes MF will have in mind - if any, by end of May.

 

ps. Its a shame the rules don't allow for a last season's rider to be reintroduced as Timo Lahti is doing quite well in Poland!!:D:D:D

Looking at Matts interview in the Echo I cant help thinking he may be planning as flws wef 1st June

Think he maybe viewing it as a reshaping based on. BK/JG/JS on their new rolling av (Brady now on 7.64/Josh on 6.79) - Sundstrom will if he keeps at current season av will drop to what he is presently achieving approx 5.75 excl BP.  Woryna currently on about 4.89 so would drop into reserve which is what most of us hoped he would do before the Spaniak move. Chris Holder to come back on his 7.16 GSA as chances are we wont see him before June ?? - Kilderman in to replace Spaniak. His current av is 7.37 but even if he stayed at his assessed GSA of 7.17 he would fit in a redeclared team just below the 43 point team limit.

That would maybe explain persevering with Spaniak a bit longer as he knows it would also justify emptying him if he continues as is and would potentially swap for a better rider ??

Ok chances are they wont get top of the league but after the current start I think Matt would happily take a play off place. Let's be honest. Whatever he does now probably wouldnt help us salvage points at either Swindon or Rye House so start thinking ahead for the plan B come 1st June.

Ideally I would like to see another proven 8 pointer come in after the 1st June but that might require more tinkering on av. Having said that if we dont get decent individual rider points from both of those matches then will be interesting what Matt attempts come the visit of say Rye to Poole. If the av by then indicate they could fit a new 8 pointer.

No doubt Matt has fine detail on all of this info on riders current rolling GSA's are as well as what potentially riders would get as new rolling GSA's come 1st June. (23rd May is last date for new GSA calculation which coincides with Wolves coming to Poole). One thing for sure is that Woryna at reserve would be great as he will undoubtedly get better.

No doubt there are other poss rider combinations out there.

No they shouldn't. It's you who shouldn't respond. Try and chill out a bit or take a break off here.

The hasty reuntroduction of rolling averages to include 2017 meetings mustve been for a reason

Perhaps there was some caught wind of who was planned to be released when Holder could return and it was decided to make it more difficult.....
