Re: Hello - and some advice please

simple way - lay it on some chipboard , iron it then pin it with some drawing pins just one in each corner that way you can still smooth away any returning creases without any trouble ...if you find yourselves playing regularly then you might consider an upgrade but in the first instance cheap/quick...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

Just coming back to life after a hectic few months and read this thread - really chuffed the teams are getting such a positive reaction :clap: - and the thing that really makes me proud is they are being USED!!! If they were just table ornaments there would be no point doing it - so thanks to all y...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

Subbuteo is diverse, and long may it continue. True Paul but really it comes down to mindset .. the chaps you mention who I would agree are good at what they do play Sports Table Football or the old Table Soccer and good luck to them .. I'd rather just play with the OS lads who certainly in the UK ...

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
True mine is the more refined genteel type from North Yorkshire ;)

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

True Paul but you did infer that I'd be lucky to get the ball off him :wink: the funniest thing about the FF ball is when people use the later SSG term of practice ball to describe it because to my mind it is so different to the other balls that it is completely useless as a practice device for the ...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

the point I was making was that I have seen these chaps play (at close quarters) and they are excellent players with the big ball - the small ball makes for an entirely different game like I say right and wrong doesn't come into it .. I doubt I will ever know for sure but on the upside nobody really...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

Would love to see you play Dave Collet that way, see if you get the ball off him, regardless of size
Fair comment Paul ..but you've never seen me play with flats and an FF ball ?

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

...comment was partly tongue in cheek Paul .. but I'll say this the FF ball makes for a completely different game I can assure you ... just compare an F with an FF everything changes ..angles..weight..touch.. . tactics ...this isn't a right and wrong thing just an observation ... From memory my resu...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

... the old FF sorts the men from the boys ... see how the super negative defences cope with an FF ... not quite so easy building an eight man defence when you're faced with someone who can thread an FF through it ...
