I think Buster needs to take some blame for the Stars starting 7 this season. No blame for the in match decisions though.

Four of the seven didn't last very long at all so what does that tell you? :rolleyes:

Stars miss out on another up and coming rider, as Josh Pickering has signed for Sheffield. Perhaps Sedgman will replace Wells in the team instead. 

I would take Sedgemen for Heeps right now.Another abysmal score for his Championship team last night.

Well, Well, Well, "Blame Me " says Buster. Some of us have been seeing it that way for quite some time and never believed that Buster would "fess up". Maybe, just maybe the next step towards a brighter Stars future will be if Buster can listen to other wiser heads in speedway and not go on believing that he knows all the answers.

I was at Scunthorpe last night and Heeps was absolutely dreadful. So was Starke he looked a completely different rider that got a lot of points at Lynn last week.

What does it say to you Starboy ? :rolleyes:. It tells me whoever picked the 1-7  is not up to the job. Be it Dale or Buster, or both. If the same people picked both his teams. The mind boggles. Why couldn't they share the riders out a bit better if that was the case.?:D

Cook..  Good signing.......Was nothing to do with his points tally, after 2 meetings. Either his anxiety, although he carried on riding. My guess it might of been an attitude thing, which his anxiety might of contributed to a degree. You don't upset Buster. As you know.

Proctor.... Not so good..... Although he was on attractive average, there was a reason for it. He was showing signs in the 2019 season, backing off down the back straight a little, allowing others past. You need to 100% mentally.  I wish Ty well, whatever he decides to do.

Bridger.... Disaster signing..... Like Proctor... Another on an attractive average. But the red flags must of been huge. I'm sure he talked a good comeback. Every man and his dog must of thought, no way will he last. Probably cost Buster and others a good few quid helping him with equipment.

Ryan Kinsley... Didn't really get a good chance. Was a casualty of the others maybe ?

Replacements ......... They haven't done many meetings to be fair. But so far..

Lawson... Would of fitted for Ty or Bridger from the start. Been fantastic..

Heeps...... Looked like he was on a moped against Ippo. Didn't go well last night in the Championship either. For a bit of a Lynn track specialist, whats wrong.10 rides/7 points. Is he still injured?? 

Wells.....  11 rides/9 points. 

Mountain.... 11 rides/4 points.

 

What are your views Starboy118.

not many managers could motivate some of the riders on show last night 

It's not really about motivation as points make pounds should be enough motivation, the simple reason is there not good enough.

Heeps was brilliant in 19.  He lost weight and got really trim and physically fit and reaped the benefits. 
he now seems to have regained the weight and isn’t effective.  I would argue if he got fit again he could do a job but at the moment I think he will disappoint.

What another one that's no good, I'm surprised he even got a club this year, always gets dropped.

I think you are right that they aren't good enough but a good team manager can drag a few extra points out of his team and that can make a difference.....Lynn arent going to finish anywhere other than bottom but some home wins would do everybody the world of good.

Exactly the reason why the only choice would be the one suggested in Olly Allen. 

Rider's would trust & believe in him

Not completely dreadful, both Starke & Heeps came from behind in heat 15 to beat the KL No 1.

I think Buster is also reasonable for the track? It can look superb but with the high clay content can be vey unpredictable for the riders.  

Agreed watching on tv Wells Heeps and poor Mountain were wobbling all over the place and seems to give no home advantage.

The quality of riders now in the Prem are not suited to ultra grippy tracks.

Many years ago I ran an online speedway fantasy league (called Tightlines) I had a guy called Dale Allitt in it at one stage, might not be the same Dale that is now TM at Lynn but it’s seems probable, anyway he didn’t last that long in the game as he was thrown out for lack of participation lol
