The snag was that they were painted at different times by different painters from the rest of...

Re: Early 70's World Cup Box Set

Surely the box is everything. All the contents would be (relatively) easy to replace. A few years ago, I was talking to a bloke who'd been working on restoring the "Flying Scotsman". "How much of this loco dates back to 1923 ?" I asked him. After a bit of thought, he said, "probably just the frame."...

There's a World Cup edition boxset on Ebay at the moment. Comes with :-
3 teams; England, West Germany and Holland.
Standard goals, not World Cup goals.
Wired goalies, not plastic goalies.
May not be entirely kosher. #-o

Subbuteo Podcast

Anyone listen to this ? :?

Sometimes a bit dull but the latest podcast an interesting interview with Trevor Spencer.

His memory seems to be failing - he refers to ref 41 as Chelsea. :angry:

On iTunes, search podcasts for "Subbuteo" and it'll come up. :thumleft:

Re: Shop Display 1968

thinking on this item the trays aren't the usual trays in the shop displays. ie , should have 15 player slots like a rugby tray. they seem to be the standard hw box trays and not as per the ones I have in my 5 tray version as per below therefore not sure if they are genuine or maybe SSG did them li...

Lose the ability to curl and that's half of the game gone out of the window.
Exactly. That's why flats are the ultimate game.

Re: Backchat

It was generally accepted that you bought the rugby or cricket fences so that you got two extra bits of fencing for free.

I've no idea where all these green fences came from. :roll:

Anything's brighter than the original Subbuteo ones.

Not to mention the way they sucked power out of the batteries,
