The two televised league matches didn't do Jim Lynch many favours. I felt sorry for him during the home match v Swindon because he had so much sh*t to deal with, plus constant TV interviews, and a bad reffing decision. But at Somerset he blew it tactically, had a meltdown during a TV interview, and then Mr Tatum kindly stuck the boot in to finish the job off.

Lynch guest managed for Poole at Coventry several years ago.  Poole won the first leg by about 28 points. We lost the second leg under Lynch by 30. OK we lost our number one bjarne half way through the meeting with a broken wrist but Lynch did such a fantastic job Coventry got three 5-1’s in the last three heats to go through. Inept at team management.

The Coventry riders might have had something to do with it (not to mention the Poole ones!). B)

Of course they didn't. Poole only lost because of Jim Lynch. :D

Poole lost because we lost Bjarne, who was an out and out number one, to a nasty injury around heat 7. Lynch failed to do his job of covering for Bjarne correctly, leaving us vunerable in heats 13 and 15.

Pooles fault for hiring a Bees fan!

Winning the league in this sport isn't all it's cracked up to be. It just leads to a feeling of disappointment afterwards.

it also means ,saying goodbye to at least half of your team at the end of the year .

Not in Swindon's case they have kept most of their team.

The problem with Jim Lynch was that he stooped so low to be associated with a rubbishe hole called Leicester Speedway.  He is a guy imo who has intregrity and professionalism -something that Leicester has never had and never will have.  Mr Lynch, to those have have a proper knowledge and understanding of the “sport” ,  yes in quote marks, will I am no doubt, agree what a perfect ambassador you have been to BRITISH speedway - all the best to you fella.
