Re: Premier League 17/18 solo

Perhaps Spurs should apply to play their home matches at your ground, if they wish to win that 'other' Premier League; the fantasy one where even Monopoly money is made to look like petty cash.

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 07.

Shortage of Entertainment for Charity. Aberdither United 1, Eastroke United 1. Not for the first time, the season's dress rehearsal was a repeat of the previous Cup Final. On this occasion, the League Champions had one new face in the team, while thr Cup winners had four. After ten minutes of fairl...

Brookfield Solo League: Season 07.

So the League returns after a busy close season. Between them, the clubs have made 133 transfer deals. Hodwell were the busiest club in the market, mainly for financial reasons, with twelve dealings, and with no club making fewer than four, they will each have at least one new player to parade durin...

Always good to have traditional equipment around at any Subbuteo match.

Re: The flatter 2017 Subbuteo bases

Clever and well stated.

When I first joined this forum I became a little confused (not difficult, I know) between the two interpretations of 'flats'.

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 06

Thank you, Donegal. As you've probably noticed, the close season has been reached, which doesn't mean that there's nothing to do. It's just as interesting, but different. Once the finances have been sorted, there's the transfer window. We try to be fair, between the twenty-six clubs. There are usual...

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 ...
