Re: Welcome to the Forum

Welcome to the forum, Rob. May your return to the game prove to be enjoyable and rewarding. My introduction to the game was possibly a little earlier than yours, but I only became acquainted to the joys of playing with flats about eighteen months ago, and instantly became hooked! Good luck, and plea...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

Highwood Rescue Point Highwood Athletic 1, Hodwell 1. We begin our coverage of the League season with a match between two of the lesser heralded Division One clubs, who will be hoping to raise their profile in 09. Is is considered that Hodwell, even on their limited budget, have made excellent use ...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

Shield Shared. Aberdither United 1, Iveley Park 1. Aberdither had slightly the better of the early exchanges, although for much of the opening quarter, both sides appeared to be sparring. The first attacking move which brought a keeper into play occurred after twenty minutes, when Aberdither played...

Re: Brookfield Solo league: Season 08.

Just some end-of-season ramblings. Iveley Park are the 2nd. division two team to win the Cup, in this era. The other one was Blundell City in 02. No team has yet won it twice, whilst three of the previous winners were relegated in the same season. Next season, four of the cup winners will be playing...

Re: Welcome to the Forum

Welcome to the Forum, Cam. Hope you find information about the lightweights, as well as some teams you're looking for, and also, possibly, some good reads about the Subbuteo scene, past and present. Perhaps I could suggest, as a start, the SubbuteoWorld website, if you're not already familiar with i...

Re: Brookfield Solo league: Season 08.

Late Drama Decides Cup Final. Iveley Park 2, Molton United 1. The early exchanges were even, as the game began to settle into its contrast between Iveley Park's close passing game, and Molton taking the more direct route, relying, most of the time, on long passes for one or more of their pacy front...

Re: Brookfield Solo league: Season 08.

Nervous Waits for Both Teams. Flimside 2, Mill Athletic 0. Our final Featured League Match of the season began with the visitors, who requited a point to guarantee promotion, making the more positive start. An attack down their left produced an early chance for Ebanks-Blake, whose shot went wide. F...

Re: A very old rule.

Am I not entitled to play my game as I wish, without being persistently challenged? Which era do you come from? You appear not to approve of my project, but you claim to have been playing forty-five years and your favourite goals, which you express a working knowledge of, have not been available as ...

Re: A very old rule.

There appears to be some confusion, which is entirely my fault. Please accept my apologies. Regarding the keeper. He is entitled to be positioned, by hand, anywhere within his own box (i.e. the goal area) whenever a shot, or back pass, is about to be taken. This is in addition to any defensive flick...

Re: A very old rule.

Point taken regarding the chance element of holding keeper with one hand and shooting with the other. I'm a little surprised that a rules historian such as yourself isn't familiar with the 'Organising' rule. It certainly appeared in the sixties sets of Advanced Rules, which I'm still playing to at p...
