Re: 18mm Balls

Yes they do run true to be fair

Re: Welsh Cup for Teams - 14th Jan 2018

It isn't a question of a divide .. OS has an ethos that does not encompass team events .. people play both or either and that is up to them but FISTF stands for Sports Table Football, for a reason does it not ? .. it is an important distinction because in OS we use different rules and equipment maki...

Re: Pelebol Subbuteo by Estrela MEGA RARE box set

It's really only rare if dozens of people want to collect it.
Looking at the quality, I'm not sure I'd want to own any of it. It's interesting, granted.
Agreed .. each to their own but they do resemble cake decorations :lol:

Re: Welsh Cup for Teams - 14th Jan 2018

There are people playing OS in groups as opposed to a club system as it suits them that way. A couple of tournaments are proposed for 2018 How are they played, everyone plays each other once in the opposite team? What team sizes? I'm curious :) You've misunderstood .. what Paul meant was we don't t...

I also put the keeper on the edge of the box when the better teams are defending, but lesser teams...

Re: Premier League 17/18 solo

How do you actually try to make the bigger teams play better. When possession changes to the lesser side are you therefore consciously not playing as well with them, or hampering them in some way.
