Prediction thread

If and it's a big if all riders stay fit, and all clubs stay with their starting 7 then my prediction is

1  Swindon

 2  Belle Vue

3   Kings Lynn

4  Sheffield

5  Wolves

6  Ipswich

7  Peterborough

If Peterborough can find a decent 6 pointer and 4 pointer for their final 2 riders, meaning they will have good reserves all season. Then I see them at 5 maybe depending on a certain NP 

even 4.

KL haven't a hope in my eyes. It's far too predictable and will struggle for points away. As ever a team which will be strong at home but I fear that won't be enough.

Swindon, Belle Vue and Sheffield really stand out for me. All those teams have good heat leaders and strong 2nd strings. Swindon and Belle Vue have the edge with better reserves.

It's then a choice between wolves and Peterborough for the final spot imo.

King's Lynn and Ipswich in a fight for the spoon.

Will be a good league regardless and nice to see some names back who will put bums on seats.

I think you’re over rating Swindon and under rating Peterborough!

For me, Boro is the strongest team, with everyone having the potential to add a point.

I’m really not convinced by Sheffield either. We shall see, looks like a very interesting season ahead.

Peterborough look a bit dads army for me. Agree there is big potential but it’s only that, and I think the reason for it looking like potential is their age. Perhaps those averages are accurate given the stages of their careers?

That said it’s a still a team which challenge for the play offs

There certainly seems more potential at Peterborough than most other teams, experience means a lot but it is a shame they couldn't have drafted in some youngsters to learn from these guys. There should be at least  one British  under 21 rider in every team.

People are referring to them as Dad's Army and yet you say they have more potential than most other teams - a bit of an oxymoron :wink:

NKI and Bomber will both score more points with the Showground as their home track...

Possibly, however people are talking about Peterborough. They have riders like Harris Andersen and Nicholls who have been on a downward trend for a while. I think this year its going to be very tight. 

I'm quietly conferdent for Ipswich. We will have a high scoring number 6 all season given an injury free season I feel Allen can up his average as hopefully can Heeps and Klint. As I said much will depend on crump if he is only scoring 6 and 7s each week we could be in trouble. 

Just keep the pressure of young Kemp let him enjoy his speedway and he could be fantastic at 7.

Poole have some Aussies but so do Swindon, the majority of riders in the Poole team are British though. Anyway not sure this is the right place for Poole or CL  discussions .
