Re: LADIES SUBBUTEO

Thanks chaps,
Its my homage to a great Northern Team. No wonder they were successful though, in my experience Lancashire women are tough, very funny and just a little bit scary :D :D

Re: need some help!!

All the time we played while at school we used the old rules with no blocking. It worked OK for us mainly because we were not very good and all friends. I just use them in solo play now, which as you say makes you concentrate on defensive positioning. Amongst friends and/or solo play - the absolute...

Re: need some help!!

Didn't only the basic rules have no blocking flicks? Seems sensible to start like that, as I remember starting and not being able to hit the blessed ball, so no one would be on their ar$e for more than a minute I would guess! I personally enjoy the slower game, and the three block flicks to get your...

Re: Some Original Defence Rules

I get the feeling that there was a struggle in the early formulation of the game to get a balance between attack and defence - this must have been a very early attempt. I personally believe that the early game was 'turn based' , but eventually youthful impatience and exuberance led to 'getting as ma...

Re: Baize Pitch Experiment

I should post a warning regarding the curly free kick! ;-)

Re: Baize Pitch Experiment

Am away for a couple of weeks in part of former USSR playing with Gas Pipelines - but still contactable.

Re: Baize Pitch Experiment

LOL! I promise you it was the incidental result of an otherwise perfectly innocent experiment m'lud :D TBH It makes playing a bit more difficult, especially with a 16mm ball - light touch is absolutely vital with it, as it doesn't hold the ball up like a plastic pitch, all well worth it for the hour...
