Agree with you there, strange NKI didn't choose KL as he has ridden there fairly recently but from what i remember he always enjoyed riding at Peterborough so should score heavily particularly at home. 

Maybe Lynn didn’t choose him.

Maybe a big mistake 

Time will tell. I think Cook did enough last year to deserve another season and Puk’s best days are behind him so maybe Lynn they have made the right choice, maybe not. I expect averages and league positions at the end of the campaign will tell us all.

PUK is still a GP rider so are his best days really behind him? How many GP riders are in the Premiership this season?

He has been number three in the world and I don’t see him doing that again so yes I’d say his best days are behind him, his previously high British League standards dropped for Lynn in 2018 and Ipswich last year and he isn’t getting any younger. I expect him to do a good job for P’boro but it’s unlikely he’ll be the rider he was for Lynn 2012-16.

Cook did well but i would back Iversen to beat him in most races, Cook never achieved what Iversen has and although he may not be as good as he was he still has a lot to offer and almost unbeatable at home.

Iversen never achieved anything like  what Crump did, which one would you rather have ?

Time stands still for no man

I didn't mention Crump, the comparison was with Cook but I would rather have Iversen  than Crump at this stage of their careers.

Come on Blue, have a word with yourself.

10 Years back NKI wasn’t on the same level as Crump.  Now NKI is above him.  The same applies with Cook and NKI. 
 

Puk is on the way down, do you think Cook is ?

Ostergaard another on a bargain average. With the improvement that this team will have on their bargain starting averages I'd expect this team to walk it

I didn't mention their respective levels 10 years ago but Iversen is younger and hasn't been out of the sport for many years so in my opinion I would expect Iversen to be at a better level now.

I hope Crump does well, he was a superstar of the sport.

Cook has never been anything close to Iversen's level and I don't expect that to change anytime soon.

I can’t believe anyone could make an argument for Cook over Iversen. Cook isn’t even in the same ball park. Cook will never achieve the level that Iversen is still at. 

Ive never seen Iversen as a genuine title contender but someone who has ridden at that level for many a year and qualifying of right has to have earned the right to be classed as a genuine GP standard rider.

Before anyone says Cook qualified as of right in his only season in the GP’s he got in thru the back door because Dudek had already qualified. 

Cook is a decent 2nd heat leader in the top flight in the Premiership, totally unproven anywhere else. Unlike Iversen.

Remind me where NKI finished in the final GP of last season?

Cook has never been at Top Level.
