Re: Mixed teams/players

Bit surprised at that - soccer's generally a pakeha game.

How "black" is the skin tone ?

Re: Help...

Mark's right - they were designed for flats. Priced at 2/5 if I remember right.

Someone with a contemporary price list can check that.

The box was pretty much the same price as the team ........

Re: Whats was this Box for?

Looks like a postage outer for a C100 team. Does a team box fit in it snugly ?

Not Subbuteo as such - just bought in from some generic supplier.

Re: OHW JOB LOT....

Some of them are really good. The 6, 17, 35 for instance.

Re: OHW JOB LOT....

I dunno, Skell - given their age, they're not too bad.

The 48 wants a tidy up but it looks very good.

Re: Subbuteo in Spain?

I've played in Murcia - just south of Alicante - and I've played against Barcelona. But they're both a fair way from you in Gibraltar.

Re: Fouls

Formations issue depends on attitude I guess .
Quite.

Re: Fouls

People talk a lot of bollocks about formations. FISTF games don't all finish 0-0. There are actually more goals scored with so-called "defensive formations" than your traditional 4-3-3 or 4-4-2. Set up with too many players up field and you spend too much time fetching the ball from your own shootin...

Re: Fouls

Of course it isn't possible to totally replicate Association Football on the small pitch, but as more recent developments have shown, loopholes in the rules are generally exploited, and then propagated across the playing community (such as as 8-0-2 formations or a player running the full length of ...

Re: Fouls

Thank you. Can you explain a logical reason why? As I have written, I can't see any reason for the changing of the rule, even though it appears to have been applied in tournaments for over fifty years. It's because there were too many free kicks in the game. TSPA Rules (best rule set ever) penalise...

Re: Base Shape

So looking at these last photos (aside from the box type) are we saying that there is no way to tell if they were produced in the late 60s or late 70s? Obviously, one thing no-one has any control over is what the purchaser does after the team is bought. If the box for his favourite 1970 vintage tea...

Re: Base Shape

No, but they wouldn't be producing two shapes just for the fun of it. They'd've used one mould until it wore out then machined another.

Year of manufacture of the base is not necessarily the year in which it was made up into a team and sold, either. There'd be an overlap.

Re: Strange pitch markings.

What size is it, Barry ? :?

Full Subbuteo size ? Five a side ?

I'd be surprised if MK saw this as a viable advertising route but it does look like their logo.
