Re: CELLULOID TEAMS

I agree, regarding the Continental sets. By the early sixties the celluloid teams were either considered a thing of the past, or were simply not 'pushed' by the stores. Everyone had the 'new' players. There are certainly some very nice teams in your collection. Are you planning to play them in any o...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 07.

Beware of Charging Bulls Bullford 3, Hinton United 0. In their last match, Bullford, 0-1 down at half-time, rallied with three second half goals without reply, to send Blackridge Town out of the Cup. They began this one in the same vein, being three goals ahead by the interval. With their first att...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 07.

It would be fair to say that Highwood Athletic are exceeding expectations at present, and it is also the case that the ball has run for them in a couple of recent games. They will want to test themselves against Hinton, where a victory would guarantee them a successful season financially. It is reck...

Re: need some help!!

Thank you, HSV66, and apologies for any confusion I caused.

I, wrongly, assumed that Jason, as a new member, may have been referring to the original game. Also, with a title of "Old Subbuteo," I had always thought the idea was to stick to the original rules of the game as accurately as possible.

Re: 5 a side solo league

Welcome to the forum, Casey, and good luck with setting up and starting your league. Afraid I can't help regarding a smaller pitch, although someone will almost certainly be able to. Because a solo league is yours, by definition, there are no 'official' rules. You're free to play the type of game wh...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 07.

Reply result: Western Villa 0, Melchester Rovers 2. This was definitely a continuation from the first match, but better, as the game produced more chances, and most of those were for Rovers. After a goalless first half, strikes from Leon Osman and Alex Young won the game for the visitors, who on bal...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 07.

The Rest of the First Round: In addition to St. Rebouro, three other Conference teams have made it through to the second round. In the two all-Conference ties, Ellerfield Athletic reversed league form with a 3-1 victory over Peakville. Alan Banks (2) and Gregg Wylde gave them a three goal lead midwa...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 07.

St. Rebouro are Giant Killers. FA Cup First Round: St Rebouro 2, Iveley Park 1. George Kirby and Wilf Carter, two forwards in the first season in the league, and both, shall we say, of a certain vintage, each scored a goal which helped their side achieve giant-killing status in this match. As the g...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 07.

Brimpton Hold on Against Plucky Alsworth. FA Cup First Round: Alsworth 0, Brimpton Rovers 1. First Division Brimpton had much the better of the first half, with several shots from Perrin, in particular, and Marshall either going narrowly wide or keeping Leiper busy. Eventually, ten minutes before t...

Re: need some help!!

Welcome back to Subbuteo, Jason. May you enjoy it as much as, and hopefully more than, you did all those years ago. It is certainly a maze regarding rules and eras, so hopefully I can at least provide a brief introduction. Old Subbuteo refers to the original game, through to, roughly, the end of the...

Re: Premier League 17/18 solo

OK, I'll be the first to stick my neck out, (and probably get it chopped off) 1) Man City, can't see their neighbours dropping so few points as to overtake them. 2) The three who are in the red zone already. They're simply not scoring enough goals, and conceding more than Leicester. 3) Take a long s...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 07.

Greyston go Top Greyston Town 2, Hodwell 1. Surprise leaders Hodwell came into this match on the back of a heavy 5-0 defeat by Mill Town, for whom, on the day, everything worked perfectly. They soon found themselves facing an uphill task in this game, after conceding a goal inside ten minutes, when...
