Trees any idea why Allitt went with Anderson and not Kerr in 14 ?  Didn’t seem to make sense from a distance (Gibraltar)

I am really pleased for the Stars fans and a play/off position is a real possiblity now all to play for.I thought this side would struggle but they have been superb and it has to be good for the league as a whole.Swindon(my side) Wolves,BelleVue,Poole all have frailaties so it could go down to the wire who claims a top 4 spot.

Before anyone pipes up, yes I have cut off my nose to spite my face where the GPs are concerned but me not attending that competition doesn't affect my home club, a team I have spent an unbelievable 40 years (OMG) supporting and enjoying, through good and bad times, through different promoters and managers, hundreds of riders (many awesome, some not so cracky lol), such a part of my life and me I guess, the GP series doesn't come close as a whole. 

You've taken a lot of stick over your stand on GPs in the past but as it happens I now agree with you regarding the GPs. They have been to the detriment of British Speedway.

As for Lynn, ten years ago I'd have agreed with every word, and I still want to see them do well but as I've grown older I've seen the flaws in speedway that I used to turn a blind eye to. They are not, by a long way, all Lynn related. So I'm pleased you are still loving it, certainly looks like Lynn might be in for a good season. How many years have we all said that only to be decimated by injury at a crucial time. 

I still retain an interest in how Lynn are doing and contrary to what some think I would like nothing more than for the club to prosper but as for the rest I really can't be bothered anymore.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but am I right in thinking,  today being the 23rd means the new average figures are taken, to be implemented  start of June..   Looking  at the current figures, the bad news is we lose Lewis Kerr from reserve berth ,   but the good news is, he will be replaced with MPT.     Both these riders are showing tremendous early season form and have contributed to the fine start the team has shown.    Whether Kerr can continue upping his average in the team proper remains to be seen, but  with his razor sharpe gating and smooth style sure gives him an edge.  

Dropping  MPT to reserve  must be a tremendous asset to the club,  being able to use him as a  safety net,  covering any  rider having problems, and also assist  his own scores against lesser opposition....

Must say its  a Win - Win situation...

Kerr is more than capable, held his own in the 2nd string positions before. 

MPT may be, very slightly weaker than Kerr at reserve but still one of the better reserves in the league. That's more important.

No Iversen for the match against Somerset next week.

Good that the news was released by the club as a part of their new "keep the fans informed". Let's hope it doesn't cause anyone to give it the Somerset match a miss. And can we have the team lineups on Monday? And will any other Danish riders be missing and riding in their homeland? A full Stars team will pull in a better crowd I am sure.

Away to Rye on Monday i would assume R/R as all other teams are racing.Wednesday someone from Wolves,Belle Vue,Rye or Swindon,or maybe go with R/R again.

Is this a new leaf the club has turned over,    Whilst it wasn't the news we wanted to hear,  at least we known what the situation is regarding Niels and his shoulder injury.   Only a couple of weeks back we were complaining of the silence when we were told nothing about the riders missing,  so it seems the Club is taking notice.  

Not sure how many meetings Niels will be missing,   the 2 next week, 1 at Rye House and at home against Somerset, offer 2 different challenges.  R/R at home will more then suffice when any rider can take a extra ride,  but away to RH is a specific track and Lynn might benefit more with a 'Horse for Courses' Guest   (if available)

 We are only a few meetings into the season and although  early form is encouraging we seem to be having a lot of interruptions to the team selections.    We can only hope the surgery goes well and Niels comes back quickly, and that settled formation has a chance to grow even stronger....

Nope, GP then surgery. With the break in the calendar he will be back for the Stars next league meeting. 

All been done with perfect timing. Ok, R/R at Rye House doesn't look good in front of the TV camera's but it is the best time for Niels to get his shoulder done.

Very unlikely as I am sat here watching him go round in practice.

Very odd IMO
