    I'd suggest every one of those riders is either injury prone, unwilling to ride Championship or on their way down. If Liebman had been signed and frozen out a genuine British youngster who is ready for the challenge then fair enough but I don't think that's the case. I think she is one of the most exciting signings of the winter, along with Worky's other two new ones!

    He only beat Bowes and West. Rew and Kurtz fell off in his heats. Although the only other rider in the field you'd possible expect him to beat was Etheridge.

    Add Workington and Scunthorpe to your list

    He wont be an asset for Glasgow because he's owned by Belle Vue.

    Any track can be difficult for the first visit though, places like Berwick, Edinburgh and Plymouth are pretty unique in shape and take a bit of learning. That said if Rew was the last signing rather than Vissing I'd be more excited as a Worky fan, but would be slightly concerned at going to some circuits with five debutants.

    Rew might improve as a rider over the season but will he surpass Vissing, who I think I better now. For example Rew has a 6.00 converted Champ ave based on his 4.00 Prem ave, which is because he can't drop below 4.00 - averaged 3.74 in 2023. Whereas Vissing has a rolling ave of 6.24, despite his 2023 form of 7.07 (8.00 home / 6.19 away). I still can't believe Glasgow dropped Vissing & would love Workington to sign him & so he can top score for a Comets away win at Ashfield. I can dream lol!

    You don't want too many riders going to tracks for the first time though. A bit of experience to go alongside the top two is pretty important.

    Exciting times at Oxford this season, who wouldn't want to watch Bomber, Maciej and Charles Wright every week, might be tempted to visit myself and watch the occasional Premiership meeting.

    Looking at the field 4 points for Pearson is the most you could expect from a 4.1 Champ rider. So his first meetings performance is especially good. While it will be tougher stepping up to second string for the first time, the potential is there.

    It's a forum, are you suggesting people who have no inside knowledge shouldn't give their opinions / ideas on the final 2 riders? We'd be on page 2 not page 62, if only allowed to state facts not theories.

    I didn’t see any comments about him being a HL - we have 3 very capable HL - lets put this into perspective - he is 18, 2 years only on a 500, was a number 6 last year and scored very well for Plymouth, he has had a very good start to his Aussie season racing against premiership and SGP riders in the Aussie title. Totally holding his own and scoring above expectations - taking some very good scalps along the way. Leave the kid alone and let him develop. If we do that he may well be a very good asset for Glasgow. And I know for a fact Poole also wanted him but he wanted Glasgow, so lets get behind him and support him.

    I've never known her to be 'negative' about anything and she's one of the most chilled members on this site.

    Yes. Some peak early and never become what people think they will become. There are many examples of this throughout history.

    If I were a Bandits fan, I would be excited about that team. Change in approach from their usual team building. If all the riders get dialled in at home should be looking to make play offs.

    On a the negative side the black and gold will lose a few quid without them.

    Irrespective of how the season turns out,it’s refreshing to see a Bandits Team with riders who are young and might improve as opposed to journeyman riders.Good Luck to them

    Who said that? That's absolute nonsense Lisa, was pointed out he had a decent meeting. But it's a bad day when beating a prem number 1 and getting slated for it. Based on his experience 4 points is about his level, especially as had to work for his when bowes and west were gifted most of theirs by retirements!

    And Bachelor's name will resonate more with the "old teams'" followers than someone they may never have heard of.. They can advertise him a an "ex GP rider, who has been twice on the rostrom, Twice World Cup Silver medalist, and a former Elite League and Australian Champion". which can only help get some interest..
