Re: Some Original Defence Rules

As a recent convert, I agree. Learning to attempt to control these characters after they've kicked the ball also adds a new dimension and challenge, whether in attack or defence. Must also say, although I've never played competitively, I'm surprised that any player, in the traditional game, even con...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

No Double as Eastroke win Cup. Aberdither United 0, Eastroke United 1. Given their opponents' recent inconsistent form, Aberdither started this match as slight favourites, and the early exchanges reflected this. Eastroke began cautiously, as though they were anxious not to go behind. They did, howe...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

No organisation like that here! Any holiday match(es) will simply be the next in the order from the template, and the teams matching each number haven't been drawn yet. So we could be staging a top of the table Division One game, or something lower down between teams which seldom get featured.

Re: Subbuteoworld collectors fair October 15th....

Good to see you again, too, CF247, along with the other familiar faces. Hope it was as enjoyable and successful for others as it proved to be for me personally.

Can only back up the thanks to Sandra and Pete for the staging and hosting.

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

There isn't a specific start date for 07 yet, but it will contain a round of matches over the holiday period, possibly including a match on the big day itself.

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

Final Round of League matches. Aberdither United 3, Bullford 2. This result confirms Aberdither United as League champions. Bullford made a game of it, with their direct attacking style, and it was only after two goals in quick succession, midway through the second halt, that Aberdither began to loo...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

Results Round-up: We're staying in the studio this week, to bring you the results as they come in. Mill Town 2, Aberdither Utd 0. A good performance from Mill Town. Whatever happens now in Division One, the title won't be decided today. Mill Athletic 2, Eastroke Utd 0. So Athletic's faint hopes of ...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

Cup Semi-Final: Crickten Junction 0, Eastroke United 2. This was always going to be Crickten's big day out. They joined the Conference back in 04, and achieved their first victory in their final game. As a consequence, they set about a team re=building programme, even though there was very little mo...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

Cup Semi-Final: Blundell City 1, Aberdither United 3. Blundell City might have been expected to take the game to Aberdither, but in the early stages they appeared to be content to match them for caution and not take any risks. It was, though, United who had more chances, with Kilbane shooting just w...

Re: Premier League 17/18 solo

It's your league, so it's only right and proper that you should have the honour and privilege of making that decision. I think if I'd put in the effort to have played all those matches, along with the associated admin, I'd stick with my own results and reward my teams who had avoided the drop. I mus...

Re: Some Original Defence Rules

Fantastic to learn that that a team of "flats" can compete and match teams 'kitted out' with the latest designs. I found a box set containing flats at a local toy fair back in May, and it didn't take me long to become 'hooked'. Couldn't agree more that the chess/snooker like conditions of the origin...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

This game was chosen as the featured match, because it was thought that defeat could prove costly for either side. As things have turned out, it might well turn out to have been decisive, in a positive way, for Hinton, as all the other teams in the top six lost. Results: Melchester Rov 1-3 Western V...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

Promotion Boost for Hinton. Danefield 0, Hinton United 1. We have visited the second division this week, dropping in on the very tight promotion race. Last season Danefield were Conference champions, while Hinton United missed out on a return to Division One by only one point. The match began with ...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

Quite correct; it's two up, two down between Divisions One and Two, but only one club exchanges between Division Two and the Conference. The reason for that being to try to give a new club from the Conference more chance to settle into its new surroundings.
