Me too. To be fair there is very little out there and perhaps waiting for the averages to change again might be the best thing in the long run.

It could be as NKI is still on a 9. His will drop to around 7.5 and they might be able to re declare then ?. Who knows what Buster's thinking.

THJ for Lewis wouldn't do much for me and he will probably cost a lot for a 5 pointer.

Thing is mate if people are stamping their feet demanding replacements it needs to be somebody and I haven't seen too many names suggested so far. With averages I was thinking that one or two CL riders averages may drop a little for August meaning there may be more options open compared to now.

We’ve still have a chance of the play offs with the right signings those play offs are more than possible- or we just complete the outstanding fixtures and try again in 2019 but just for once I hope the boat is pushed out rather than just going through the motions to end of the season

That’s the difficult one who’s available and more important who would come -

Yeah. It would be nice for the fans if Buster pushed the boat out and went for a play off place, after the back end of last season. Try and end on a high, not just muddle through to the end of the season.

I know it ain't easy, but it would go a long way if he has worked hard finding the best riders available.

Cant imagine the fans will turn up in their hundreds if Buster don't come up with decent replacements.     Fans go each week to support their team and hope they are successful,   but to expect them to turn up when they haven't a hope of success would be a different proposition.

Again hit by injuries, it seems the Stars are always up against it.   This year we had the nucleolus of a good team,   only to be deprived of riders when meetings clashed.     If we give up this opportunity now,  just because of an injury to Kerr, we may as well ask 'What's the point'.

Think several riders would like to come to if they are available You only have to read what the riders that we have now are saying Kerr wants back at Lynn next year and that also goes for Procter Toft Jorgnsen who have praised the club.   No one twisted there arm for statement they have made. they must mean it

Quite right.Nobody has put forward any names who they would want as replacements yet(apart from Auty:rolleyes:),but they bang on about having to get decent replacements.So for those saying we have to get decent replacements,who would you regard as a decent replacement for Kerr?

Personally i hope the averages will drop over the next few meetings and we can re-declare with someone like Nicholls/Bomber and a reserve around the 2-3 point mark.Obviously the more points we have left for a reserve the better.

I think its inaccurate and rather defeatist to say 'whats the point' if the club struggles to replace Lewis. We stand a better chance of success with a new signing but R/R and guests could work if everybody else pulls their weight. As always with new signings it depends on who is available, if they want to come and how much points money is in the kitty.

If the Meeting against Leicester  had been finshed  (the ambulances had not delayed it)  Look how many races would have been ridden wit only one rider  with no Kerr no Andersen and Proctor having already had 4 of his 7  rides   R/R is a thing to avoided if possible.

Andersen was always going to  be hard to replace  having a poor average Simon has put in some good scores but will depend on an Improvent from earlier this year.  Pity that BAILEY Is injured He might have been a better choice. Or Kinsley who has been scoring well for Mildenhall. But again thats a lower League.

One thing brining in Lambert has confirmed is we can get a new 4 pointer or a Championship rider on a 5.20 or less.

Gives the club breathing space to look around as guests in that position will be shocking.

In terms of replacements for Kerr, I don't think running R/R will be all that bad. 1 of Jorgensen, Toft and Proctor will be at reserve and get 7 rides and all of those 3 are available for R/R. All more than capable cover, the team just has to remain injury free. Another injury and that WILL be season over.

No news on replacements for Kerr and Anderson is a concern. Surely the a Stars won't sign S Lambert again. His best days are long gone.

Your wish has been granted!
