Club asset, fans’ favourite, attractive average - not that odd.....

Is it really an attractive average given his championship average and season last year?  Summer or Wells must be a better bet surely

He hasn’t yet though has he

No but he was announced for the Ben Fund after Nicholls was announced for Peterborough.

But he may not have been offered a place by Peterborough at that time. IF he has now been offered that place, then you’d expect him to withdraw from the Ben Fund. 

Surely he'd have been offered a place when the higher averaged BWD was in the team? Doesn't make sense to offer him a team place after the lower averaged Nicholls?

I think the Panthers will do well whoever their number 7 is, as long as they use up the points. If Bomber, Hans and Scotty don't put a 2.5 points on their ave between them, i'd be shocked. Mostly Bomber and Hans.

MPT looked fast at the back end of the season, I can see him holding his own.

I think NKI will average 8. He will average over 7.5 away, and I can see him average at least 9 at home. Looking pretty good for the Panther imho.

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 ?
