Actually, a lot of us like Ellis because he does score points, often the ones "he shouldn't". But hey, three league tiles and two cup winners' medals in the same season sort of says something. 

 

I like him too, but not as the 3.57 senior reserve. That’s the only point I’m making. Hopefully on better equipment he can step up.

Swindon will be good in 13 & 15 but would have Perks/Stewart against Nicholls/Covatti/Allen/Heeps in heats 12 and 14, so 3-3s might be the best they could hope for.

I can’t see Rowe picking up any points away from home and Swindon will concede a lot of heat advantages in heats 2 & 8 (and possibly in 4, 12 & 14)

Let’s face it, from the riders available, no one, can match Swindon’s top three or four, so building with strength in depth is far better than trying to compete with the same strategy but having weaker riders.

I think the teams that have gone for strong top fives, Belle Vue and Sheffield, will be more exposed when one of their riders has an off night.

That Ipswich team looks like it could cover two riders having an off night and I think it’s the best way to go, making them joint favourites with Swindon.

 

what will happen when one of swindon's top 5 has bad night more exposed than b/vue Aces reserves far better !!

I understand that Kings Lynn like some other teams are keeping riders from last season with a view to help fans relate to their team and promote continuity but normally it is about riders improving and can't see that happening with Kerr and TJ.

I agree with continuity of riders but not riders who are not good and who are unlikely to improve.

Ipswich don't need a No.1 and neither do Peterborough. Only 2 legit No.1's in this league Doyle & R. Lambert. 

I take it you forgot about Pedersen? :rolleyes:

Nope. See Peterborough thread. I don't think he will be as good as people think. 8 year hiatus, Multiple big injuries, No longer in his prime. Reputation doesn't mean anything in any sport.

Also contemplated retirement after one of those serious big injuries.

Makes no difference in the big scheme of things Pedersen signing in the UK is a massive coup and only strengthens that genuine list to 3, 4 if you add in Kildemand.
