I think we have now reached a conclusion, there is a football game, which looks classy, and is a bit like subbuteo, but isnt. It has bases and figures which have in some way been adapted from figures and bases which used to be used for Subbuteo, but arent now.
I think the figures are quite pretty - at some point I may buy a set off e-bay and put them on some other kind of base and use them to play Subbuteo with - hope no one minds?

We bring our preparation to the table, and opportunity may present itself, and if you are well prepared, you can seize opportunity and then maybe something good happens, and you call that luck.
