Tell that to Ipswich. They're looking for a magnificent seven just now.

Worth enquiring. He’s not riding on Saturday nights anywhere else is he ?

And would be a huge boost to British Speedway.

Probably not, but you'd need him to be available to ride away on sundays when you visit the likes of Sheffield and Newcastle. That ain't gonna happen, even if you could afford him ( which along with every other championship team) I doubt.

Nine teams now complete and the others almost.  I assume we finish with Kennett, Lawson and Zach.

Having never followed this League it is hard to tell just how strong the other teams are but they look on paper to be well matched. No outright favourites and I suspect that forecasting the top four is almost as hard as winning the lottery.

Redcar seem to be well fancied and we do know some of them.  I would think our heat leaders could match theirs so it is down to the bottom four. I don't know Stewart but have seen the other three and they hold no major fear over our four so we should be competitive.   It will be interesting to see how the continental riders handle Arlington as very few if any of them have been here.  I was also surprised how many English riders are 'strangers' to Arlington because they had not made the Elite League when we left but were past the NL when we joined.

Our home record should keep us mid table with the most likely challenge coming from Leicester.  Richie Worrell was brilliant as a guest with Poole scoring something like 18 points in the Elite League and Nicholls and Perks are ex eagles .  Mountain and Thomas have a fair bit of experience on the track but they did have difficulty against Wood and Brennan last year.

All in all a fascinating year ahead,  I just hope all those fans who refused to watch NL appreciate what is coming and return to the fold.

As usual Eastie will be forecast to be bottom 4 and as usual will more than likely end up in the top 4. If that is the final 7 as expected, can't see us losing at home with that strength in depth of riders who ride well at Arlington. Think it will be a pretty open league this year which can only be good .

From the angle of putting together a team in the championship on a budget  I suppose with the Lakeside/Cook/Eastbourne collaboration the expected team will be put together with no loan fees? If as I suspect that is probably the case, when you look at the unease on the Birmingham section ref the team for this year, think we can be pretty happy with the team. Think Eddie's average is a bit high, but be good to see him back having seen him in the second halves all those years ago.
