Hi,

Can anyone help?
Any ideas who these two might be?
Don't have all the players, but would appreciate some help?

No problem - the 233 being a slight variant ? .. these two have cropped up before in a box set ?

As promised the ref. 233 only had 9 players and no box. Should be a doddle to sort out.
The ref.245 will be a major project! Only 5 decent players and the rest are a mess....
Arrived in a shoddy club box with Portsmouth (53) in about the same shape! Half a team....either unloved or played to death? Hopefully the latter.

Hi,

Appreciate the offer. However I like a challenge and (with my own OCD tendencies) am going to take my time and try and recover what I have? I won't improve or learn if I don't keep trying myself! Thank you though. :salut: :salut: :salut: :salut: :salut: :salut:

:O Hi Richard,

bit of this, bit of that.....have to keep looking!
Pays dividends when teams like this pop up...even if they aren't complete! Should have got back into this 10years ago. Gets more and more difficult to find anything worth the effort!
