Who are you, in your head, when playing the beautiful tabletop game? I'm almost always aston villa from the 1989/90 season, unless i lose badly in which case the Small Heath players have clearly sabotaged my squad ;)

Hi Algy, my friend. Hope you are well 8)
I play solo competitions so always pretending, even commentating :wink: :-\ :lol: I am very impartial so not siding with any team of course, but I get in my zone and go through the Subbuteo wormhole and into another place where everyone's smiling... and the same 48 teams compete in every World Cup :lol:
How about them transparent dangling carrots
How about that ever elusive kudo

Having played solo leagues with hybrid teams for over half a century, I think I would struggle to decide what tactics to play during a game if I didn't have an image of both the player and team I am trying to imitate.

In practice I almost certainly don't imitate any of the players very well, or how the team might play if their eleven players could ever have played together, but that's another matter.
