Do we think that the three line whip on team declaration is:

 

(1) A well thought out plan to avoid last years  farce.

(2) Bosses think it is good to keep us guessing

(3) Parsimony

(4) Buster knows best

No. 4 should read : Buster always knows best.

That is of course an Axiom

To put it another way what do we think in terms of getting supporters on side and looking forward to new season with the team announcement strategy being adopted.

Doesn't matter either way. The days of enough people giving a fig are long gone and unlikely to return. It's a question of scale and expectaion I guess and neither are particularly high so it is what it is.

We have had an announcement about an announcement about an announcement being made. Wooden spoon again then.

 

"PETERBOROUGH fans are just over a week away from learning who their first signing will be for next season.

And the club have confirmed team building plans are set to include a combination of new and familiar faces.

Co-promoter Colin Pratt is in favour of keeping riders fans can identify with, pointing to Swindon’s argument that they wanted to keep the same team which won the league.

And even though Panthers struggled in their first season back in the top flight for various reasons, some of the team are set to return to the Showground."

Why would you even mention that? We were rubbish last year and we're going to sign some of the same riders again.

Bech and Jonasson have said they are signed up in the Premiership somewhere haven’t they? So could be either or, or both.

Lots of solid middle order men and decent reserves named above but a number one is what is really needed.

Number 7 would be Tungate, number 7 Nicholls, only 1 point in averages between them ......

KK has turned down a offer from Panthers.. Just like most other riders have

Negotiating tactic. KK is still very much open to the idea of riding for the Panthers.

He just wants more money.

Looking pretty desperate for the Panthers :( Especially if the rumours of Charles Wright (Their only decentish top rider), going to Belle Vue are correct... Hope they find someone and don't have to go with Rohan Tungate at number 1... Mikkel Bech potentially? He's still due to be announced somewhere... And Anders Thomsen reckons he's doing uk... Peterborough seem to like their Danes...

Has Kenneth Bjerre quit the uk? I never thought I'd say this... But I fear for Peterborough...
