If they are haggling over the loan fee or transfer fee it could have caused Mr Ford to start playing games via the media.

Hans is, what, 38 but by no means over the hill yet. So Ford could be trying to get a better transfer fee than what Leicester are offering??

I don't think that's what is holding it up. It's all to do with Chris Holder I think. Read Skidder's post on the Poole thread, it makes the most sense imo.

It does appear that way, time will tell

Interesting, so Hans has to choose between Poole and Leicester?? ;) Maybe Leicester can have Chris, he might actually want to ride for them! 

We don’t want Holder !

Andersen it is. Happy with that! Half decent team for a change. Roll on the new season.

Terrific signing for the Lions, looks a very good side which will take some beating. Hans is not the rider he was but he maintains his level year on year and always gives his best every race, you won't catch him letting anyone down.

It is a shame from my point of view that he will not be at Poole next season, always liked Hans and a rider and as a person.

No surprise, considering Speedway Star released the information last week.

Play off contenders without doubt.

Enjoyed my trips there last season as track was much better than when i’d been previously. 

Good to see them really competitive again. Whilst I was initially disappointed re the lack of top riders again, I think this might be the most evenly balanced set of teams i’ve seen in some years.

Great lineup tbh disagree with Vaculik being an 8.00 personally but definitely the best lineup so far. 

 

Precisely because of that. They got Vaculik on 8.00, so it gave them more scope. They have, effectively, been able to build to 43.50. So they are bound to have a strong line-up.

Incidentally, can you imagine the uproar on this forum if Poole had signed Vaculik and then had his average reduced by a point?

Has there been official confirmation of why Vaculik is 8.00 yet other GP riders with previous averages have been reassessed to 9.00?

No official confirmation of either part of that sentence, but I believe the first part is correct but the latter part isn't?!!

They obviously used their own skill and judgment to work out that Vaculik is slightly below the standard of Nick Morris and Jacob Thorsell, so assessed him accordingly.
