Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

I think you can use the image of a Subbuteo player without license...it's just needed when you use the Subbuteo name. That's true. You can't make any claims on the image of the man because you didn't design it. The base was registered as a design but that's now expired. Subbuteo, on the other hand,...

Re: No blocking flicks

If you're wanting to teach someone the game, how about he can block, but you can't ?

You'll probably still win :clap: but who cares anyway ? :guiness:

You don't see a lot of Premier League players in an open-top bus because they won Friday's five a side comp. :bday:

Re: Ref 110 Trivia

nice find Mark I have always found it strange that no team from the Italian region of Switzerland has ever made a real mark. Lugano are probably the biggest team from there but havnt really done much. Bellinzona Locarno and Chiasso have spent most of their history outside the top flight. instead Ge...

Re: No blocking flicks

When we first stated playing at school nobody used blocking flicks. Its not a bad idea for the absolute novice who has never played, just for their initial few games until they get used to flicking. I've just introduced somebody to the game and it does take a while to master flicking properly, havi...

Re: No blocking flicks

The trouble with not having blocking flicks is it means only one of you is playing at any one time - shots at goal apart. It's not snooker. Or worse - billiards. I was reading an account of the break a bloke racked up in the 1930s - before they changed the rules - when you could jam a couple of ball...

Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

Just making the point that collectors will always refer to a 26 as Drumcondra.

Not Leeds United - which is why it came into the catalogue originally.

Up the Drums. :026:

Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

It'd be nice if the player was ref 38. :Doh:
Town never actually played in a ref 38 kit though......another Subbuteo idiosyncrasy.
Irrelevant !! 38 has always been Grimsby.

Just like 26 is always Drumcondra.

What have facts got to do with it ? :roll:

Re: ONE MANS MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION.....

What a fantastic collection Mark. Superb.

I can only imagine how long it has taken to collect and how long it took to put that montage together. I am glad you did.

Montage ? :O

I thought he'd piled them all one on top of the other !! :Doh:

The last woman burned for witchcraft was Mary Pannal - just a few miles north of Cas Vegas.

That was a couple of months ago now.
