Kings Lynn 2018..

Recommended Posts

Not for Lynn he didn't, his meetings were at number five.

I don't think I'm overrating him, just saying that he should be capable of averaging what the likes of Bates, Ellis, Robson, Riss, Garrity, J Holder, Palm Toft, Barker and Sedgemen did last year.

Apologies,  I thought he had dropped down. 

It's more other's over the years that have hyped him and I've never really seen anything to justify that hype. 

But you have a fair point that he SHOULD be more than capable of achieving that standard.

He promised much when he was younger and of course made it into the GP's but has never got anywhere near the level his potential suggested he might.

I believe Robert now lives in Germany with his girlfriend 

Thanks for the update of Roberts location.   Its puts a different  angle on it,  but  had he wanted to ride this wouldn't have stopped him.

If you have ordered Fans Forum tickets from the club, they are being sent out from Tuesday 19th onwards .....

I have no problem with the tickets being sent out that late,  but expected some form of confirmation before then.    I have ordered 2 tickets for people who will have to travel down and have day off work.   Have they to wait  until the tickets arrive before booking that day off work??   Having ordered them early,  I feel a confirmation Email would have been so easily arranged.

I believe he could average 5.5 - 6 if he starts at reserve and has an injury free season. Never going to be a heat leader or world beater any more but it's certainly not beyond him to be a half decent second string. We saw enough glimpses of that last year in between the many poor rides.

I too believe THJ will be more than capable of attaining a decent average.  They say form is temporary, where ability is forever. and few can doubt his ability.   Most of his bad scores could be attributed to poor machinery, and using borrowed equipment , but I sure with a settled team, and decent bike he will more than hold his own.....       Apparently he is a wonderful rider to have in the pits and always wanting to help and encourage others....      Something a close team desperately needs........

Could be a Championship side ?

Could be, but like Haza I've been told he's signed. Apparently he spent sometime staying at the stadium a few weeks ago.

I just didn't want to to be the first to blab :D

What average do these young Dane's come in on?

4.00?

I believe so.

Might be a tough ask for him to get near that but guess he has something about him. I can see a couple of possible connections to see why he's ended up with us. He used to be at Esbjerg who's team manager is Tom P. Madsen. Also it's Niels' Danish side. Hopefully that means that Niels recommended him and will be back to look mentor him.

With Rose 42.74......I don't follow the rules closely but is there a 5% reduction for English riders,If yes, Rose would fit in place of Manzarez.Would put Kerr at number 6

............ Just checked...Don't fit.:blink:

Reading that Lynn are in discussion with Lambert about his plans for next season. Does this mean they had no idea of his plans not to ride before his public announcement ?  So much for a more professional balance to the club going forward when you didn't have an idea that your star attraction wasn't coming back. 

Same old, same old

Could equally have been they were in negotiation and Lambert wanted more than was offered so thought his announcement would add a bit of pressure.

 

i have no idea but being a Libran I like to find two sides to everything :P

 

to to be honest I didn't consider Lambert's announcement to be very professional but it takes all sorts:wink:

My interpretation was that the club and rider had discussed a team place but couldn't agree terms. I can't imagine that they hadn't spoken.Lambert uses social media to let it be known he may not ride in the UK and KL realise they need to up their offer if they want him and decide to get back in touch.

 

Sorry Star Lady you hadn't posted when I typed my post but great minds and all that.

Hear what you are saying guys but I thought the team was done and dusted with 5 riders being drip fed to the fans during Jan with the final 2 being revealed on the night of the fans forum. With all riders in attendance that night.  Or did I dream that ?
