Re: Lost in translation?, question for Italian readers

One other story with the translation of Subbuteo. In Brazil as we know it was pelebol, this was due to the fact that is certain areas, Subuteo, with one b meant a slang word for a ladies genital area!!!
Well they do like it being flicked lol ;-)

Re: Desperation strikes

Having had two original HW Melchester Teams, it's worth noting for any new collector, that the red ref label was the same one that SSG sometimes used on the Red Football Express Teams and Red Tracksuited Teams.

The one shown on that link isn't one of these.

Re: Brexit and postage

Vriesland...on the outskirts of Rotterdam. Don't worry though...I've found another in better condition and with extra teams and only 10 Euro more, so I'm going to go for that instead. Thanks for the offer though.

...somebody is going to be...you couldn't make it up. If you've ever owned SSG Lilac bases, you'll know the difference between Santiagos and SSG.
