Is that Musielek that replaced Grondal?

You know the Musielek that Swindon have signed and will race for Swindon next season................along with one of the best young brits in Adam Ellis that Poole showed zero loyalty to after helping them to win the league.......Pooles loss was Swindons gain there

When did Ellis help us win the league?

Why wouldn't you keep he is a top rider, that's not loyalty that's being sensible. Surprised you haven't been loyal to Doyle though.

Come on forever that is down to the stupid bspa team limit of one rider above 8, you know the group that continually water down the speedway teams.

If it was not for that stupid rule we would have had Nick and Jason in out team.

Yes I agree but if you had done that it would have meant  you would have to have severely weakened lower down .

Personally, and I'm sure there are plenty that will disagree, I thought the BV team was coming together nicely but believe Cook was not the best they could have done baring in mind his likely distraction in the GPs.

I think he is somewhere in the middle of the number ones announced so far but it would have been mad to bin him off given that he is coming off of his best season, is our captain and being unable to afford an expensive team. No way his commitment can be doubted either!

Agreed.

He isnt as good as Doyle or Morris but ahead of everyone else, even though Thorsell has a higher average it was gained form second string.

His commitment will rub off on the others and with 3 other heat leaders in Fricke, Worrall and Tungate backing him plus young Bewley Belle Vue look mighty strong

Agree about Doyle, but I would argue Morris. Lets see at the end of this season, Injuries barring which one of the 2 ends up the better No 1

Out of interest in head to heads last season in the championship,at Berwick it was 2-1 to Cook, and at W/ton it was 3-0 to Cook albeit in 1 of those heats Morris did retire.

In the Prem at B/Vue it was 3-2 to Morris and at Swindon it was 1-1, cook only rode in 1 meeting at Swindon.So it's pretty even, should be a good year for both.

I saw a fair bit of Thorsell last season and he did seem to improve quite a lot so i don't think he will be a awful number one and will get maximums at home and could get as good an average as Cook over the course of the season.

Mid season changes again then.

 

Of course - with Mitchell being replaced by another Alpen :rolleyes:

Too weak at reserve until that change!

Thorssell rode all season as 2nd heat leader.

That's the second fact Gavan's got wrong on one page! He said earlier we dumped Ellis after he helped us win the league!

He may have been second in your averages but he rode at number 4 for a lot of the results I have just looked at - which I think is the point that is being made.
