Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

Thank you for your question, which has provided me with much thought to answer clearly (hopefully) and in a fairly concise way. The main reason for playing the matches at all is to compare the various formations, and although several teams may appear the same, there are usually differences, however ...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

Thank you for your interest. Sorry the reports took so long. The matches were played early afternoon, but by the time I finished the write ups in rough, I thought it was time to start cooking Christmas dinner. At least a former Saint was playing in one of the matches, although on this occasion he ha...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

Our newly purchased fixture organiser, a multi-faced Digital Illustrated Compact Engineer (usually referred to by its initial letters) provided two Christmas Day fixtures; Western Villa v South Barsham (D2), followed by White Cliff v Tarka Vale (D3). Both matches are between teams close together in ...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

To be honest, I will prefer to play a couple of matches, with the radio in the background, than sit and watch tv, which would probably send me to sleep anyway. I'm particularly enjoying the league this season as the next match depends on the roll of a multi-sided dice, about five minutes before kick...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

Reiver on the March Again. Blundell City 1, Reiver Forest 2. On paper this would have been a no contest, but we all know where football matches are not played. Ambitious Blundell City have made a disappointing start to the season, while Reiver, with much more modest financial resources, have spent ...

Re: A very old rule.

Fully agree about playing a way that works for the solo player. What I've never fully explained before, is that originally I misread a rule regarding the goalkeeper. I believed that keeper was able to play for the ball anytime it came to rest in the penalty area, so there are few occasions when he i...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

Athletic get Bragging Rights. Mill Town 0, Mill Athletic 2. Before we report on the action, there are two new Mill Town players who you may wish to know something about. Bill Strauss, (143 matches, 1946-53), was a left winger who liked to move across and help out in the centre. He should be a perfe...

Re: Set with card figures and the rules in Swedish

When I first saw the photos, I also thought they possibly looked like celluloid teams, so you may have purchased two stronger teams than you thought. As a recent convert, though, I am certainly not an expert on such matters, I simply appreciate and enjoy the type of game they play.

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

Melchester Going Well. Melchester Rovers 2, Blackridge Town 0. Not too many introductions required here. Melchester have brought in Adrian Heath, to play alongside Alex Young, while Blackridge now have Trevor Steven playing on their right, and Tim Howard in goal. The first attacking move which led ...
