Re: Brighton 1982-83 FA Cup Final

A very good interpretation of when the Seaweed thought they would look like Chelsea.. Up the Eagles Or will it be down ? I think you will stay up, but then I'm usually wrong. :wink: Very nice Alex, a variation on the one you did for me a few years ago in that you have put some of the red stripes in.

I come from Sussex and don’t repaint...please don’t tar everyone with the same repaint brush The population of Sussex is over 1.5 M, I strongly advise not avoiding every seller from the county. Do we have we an address for the Lancing repainters, its not far from me. No slur intended towards you St...

Re: Identifying Lloydie's teams

I strongly advise you and any other buyer not to buy from the Sussex area. Two renown repainters, I call such folk Fraudsters, from that area teamed up together, and purchased 10,000 original unpainted HW figures, along with boxes of bases and discs, from a chap whose Father worked at Paddock Wood ...

You probably need to use a smaller brush and a magnifying glass.

Re: Premier League 17/18 solo

Well done on completing the season in record time and pleased to see that we survived. I string my league out to finish when the actual season ends. What's next ?

Re: This Could Start A Bidding Frenzy

Subbuteo is now like most of the art galleries around the world full of fakes. I wonder what percentage of rare teams in collections are fakes. I've read that a lot of galleries know they have fakes but tend not to publicise it, a bit like Subbuteo collectors I suspect. Spot on. I would love to hav...

Re: Man City cup winners 1969

Nice looking team, Jon. Just watched the brief highlights (youtube). 50 year anniversary next year. Jeez. I can remember it like it was yesterday; unlike the recent cup finals, of which I have hardly any recollections at all. :? The kits from that era really do look superb. i cant remember a single...

Nice find Spud, anything that adds to our knowledge of SSG should be preserved.

Re: need some help!!

Didn't only the basic rules have no blocking flicks? Seems sensible to start like that, as I remember starting and not being able to hit the blessed ball, so no one would be on their ar$e for more than a minute I would guess! I personally enjoy the slower game, and the three block flicks to get you...

Thanks. Unfortunately I didn't get to choose the base colour, they were requested in this combination.
Very nice work, but I think you should have gently suggested an alternative base. :O

Re: ‘NEW LUTON’...

I think that neckline was by design because every example of that variation I have seen has the oversized V collar. Same with the Villa 74 and United 100 teams. And the Haiti 175 variant before I forget. Not every Kent Housewife skills were lacking. I know they weren't....I knew the best of them! J...
