SUBBUTEO IN ROME

Post by francao » 11 Jun 2019, 22:18

another beautiful story at the greenest Bar in Italy, a very welcome visit, directly from Cardiff in Italy for a Tournee: John Lauder, Dave Samuel & Gareth Thomas. of the Cardiff Bluebird Team.

You must know that John and I have known each other "virtually" for more than 10 years because he is a very famous subbuteo salesman on ebay: WRKL ... surely many subbuteo buyers will have also bought from him and now we finally met in person and we drank that famous beer together that we promised a long time ago.

my first complete Newfooty pack of my collection I owe it to him!

They were 2 beautiful days, very nice people who honored me with a briefcase of their club, a newfooty team, a walker team and a bowling kit.

When he contacted me he told me he would like to play at the bar, I replied: ok John, but remember that in me you will find only cotton fields and plastic world cup goals!

And he replied that it was fine.

we did a lot of games and I can assure you that the old regulation know it very well (apart from the offside diagonal that I explained to him how to do it) maximum fair play and fairness, they brought a wolves, a red standard and another team painted but all original material.

we talked a lot about subbuteo and soccer.

They'll be back next year, so we'll have a beer together again.

It was a pleasure to meet you, thank you John, Gareth and Dave, I hope one day to reciprocate the visit maybe going together with the 6 nations to the Millennium Stadium!

I'm waiting for you next year.

Ciao !!!!
