Poole v King’s Lynn Premiership Grand Final 1st leg 08/10/18

Recommended Posts

Whilst it would have made more sense if the guests were the other way round, surely Speedway has become too obsessed with averages in recent years, and if both teams agree on this then I don't see too much of a problem with it.

Once you break the rules for whatever reason the sport loses all credibility.What will happen in future when a side wants to use a guest that is slightly over the limit?

Gavan, Well yes we should have Ellis and KL have Morris but how do you know who's idea it was to do this? You don't? Maybe BT sport said 'can you guys not have the same guest on Weds instead of swapping...?' Fact is Gavan you don't know and I don't know. But I prefer this to swapping riders half way through a final. If KL fans don't have a problem with it then I don't see how you can! 

It’s not about whether Gavan or anyone thinks it’s right , do you not see. It’s breaking the rules, pure and simple. I shall not be watching , I hope for the sake of the credibility of our sport Lynn the true champs win. That’s me finished with this now , btw well done Tai, see you all next season.

You can't do it unless you are in the playoff final and there is no one else to guest. Personally I blame Museliek for this mess :D

Not unless it has changed in the last 30 mins.

Edit. It has changed. Lynn are now 4/5 and Poole 7/5.

Lynn still favourites though and rightly so.

2nd leg could get rained off yet, put back to next Monday, Iversen might be fit again depending how bad his head injury is and then we can go back to using Ellis. Ta-da!!! We are not cheating til it actually happens!

5/4 on  7/5.... too close to call now.  Have Poole's odds come in since NKI was ruled out ?

If anyone has ‘backed down’ surely its Lynn for allowing Poole to be over the limit?

I think you are clutching at straws there, forecast is good for Wednesday, in fact it is likely to be warmer even in East Anglia.

Sticking to the rules is never worse.
 

In this case, it was. 

Common sense has prevailed.

And that can be seen by everyone with common sense.

I imagine the reason it has been done this way round is because we had already booked Morris for tonight and KL had booked Ellis for tonight.
