Because he’d improve the team surely? And apart from 3/4 matches Wilkinson has been poor. 

 No, he really  hasn't. 

It seems to me that the team is in some measure fuelled by team spirit and to sack one of them may do a lot of damage to that. 

Jeppesen averages 3.81 in the PL, which is probably about a 5 in this league. 

As I say, why?

Well that’s your opinion but I think if there is any new Danes who we could potentially sign I’d go for it, might take a few matches to bed in but they’d become an asset which in turn would be good for the future. 

I think he’d come in on 5.2 Wilkinson is averaging 4.6 that’s half a point swing. We will just have to wait and see if we do make any change though.

Carl's Green sheet average is 4.6 and includes part of 2017. His 2018 average is 5.35. No swing at all.

Jeppesen would be assessed at 5.2. Emphasis on the word ASSESSED. He's averaging 3.81 from the reserve slot racing against, primarily, Premiership riders. It would be a big risk, not worth it in my opinion.

as captain of the Diamonds!!!

 

Hopefully this will achieve what it sets out to do and see an improvement in Ludde's away form, which can only be a good thing for the Diamonds.

Stuart Robson takes over.

Why the big space between first two lines???? Did your finger get stuck ??

No it was more to do with the fact that people may have thought he had stepped down from the team, might have pleased a few Diamonds fans, not me. :P

 

Hopefully he gets his away form sorted.

Can't see any imminent changes at the moment. A think Kus will make a mockery of his 'sub 5 ave.' and seems the rest are just about doing their job.

I think in normal circumstances the logical thing to do would be to bring in a new potentially big rider, and let him settle in like Bloom says above. But you have to remember the difficulties of getting the new promotion up and running in time for the new season, and it was stated that this year was one of 'consolidation'. In the circumstances the current Diamonds had had some cracking results at home, and a few near misses away. The racing has been good this year, and most riders have in fact raised their average, although they are tempered by the number of last seasons meetings have now been included
