Re: What team is this?

couldn't be a team of 'spare goalkeepers' C106 style could it? Only thought that because in another thread somewhere was a team of ref 21 flats which were all actually white shirted keepers.......just a thought....

Re: Whats was this Box for?

Looks to me like one I have with a red scoreboard in it - in those days the fence surround was nothing more than a few brass clips and a piece of string! (got one of those boxed too)

Re: Fouls

Formations issue depends on attitude I guess - I enjoy making passing moves, irrespective of the scoreline. The 'game' as it is now is clusters of players on the shooting line being manipulated by micro-flicks or shoves made to impersonate flicks - doesn't float my boat even if others get a thrill o...

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 t...

Re: Huddersfield vs Man City

:wave: Cheers! Good to be back again, having a break means coming back to the game with fresh enthusiasm :clap: - as to those quaking goalposts - I blame the equipment (I always do) :-"

Re: Huddersfield vs Man City

Well, well, well. I met this guy at the Subbuteo 'tournament' in Leeds a few years back - he had me stitched up like a kipper - 'I am quite new to this thing, ohh, you play with flat players, where do I get some?' so I sold him a set of cellys cheap, to encourage anyone with interest in the flats. F...

Re: "Old Subbuteo"

Hey guys, BlackpoolRock - I too see it as a thinking game, agree with your sentiments about solo play! Flash - Tournaments are an acquired taste to be sure, having been picked up on three differences in rules in two games, then playing a third game where I was picked up on a change in Rules I had ju...

Re: "Old Subbuteo"

Hello everyone, just returned to this forum after a while and couldn't resist this thread :D A few words in defence of non-tournament and solo play....don't get me wrong playing in a tournament is great for meeting people, especially putting faces to usernames, and making some good friends, but the ...

Re: The Stoke Old Subbuteo Tournament & Fair 20/03/16

Andy, Many thanks for a good day out yesterday. Besides enjoying an opportunity to play Subbuteo again (but must remember to brush up on the 'definitive' rules because there seem to be some different interpretations out there that caught me out a few times!), it was good to pick up a few things fro...

Re: Pro Table Soccer Association

For myself I would rather walk away from a game having lost but made a friend, got to know someone better and/or having had a good laugh, rather than winning a game in po faced silence. If your not talking (or at least having a footy commentary going on in your head) then your not playing IMO. That...
