best not to try to correct me when you are completely wrong :lol: please observe the club badge in the very link you provided or even read the official site rather than one put together by some numpty. Countless programme editors over the years thought Workington Town were a Football League club they were also wrong.

They have been Academicals at certain times in their history.

A bit like Hartlepool(s).

they started as Academical they became Academicals due to the large amount of people who clearly cannot spell or speak correctly and have been Academical again since 1965 ... :razz:

this is of course nothing at all like Hartlepool who adopted and subsequently dropped the S for a very different reason

I didnt comment on motives, only the fact of the appearing and disappearing "s", which we agree has been common to both clubs

I feel rather compelled to to answer the point Ralphtheclaret made when he said about the guy that is producing the vintage days teams, "i hope his painting is better than his spelling", well i leant tonight from a friend of mine who has also contacted vintage days and he tells me apparently the guy thats doing the teams is dyslexic and colour blind..... ;-)

:grin: Hello again, I' m now back from my summer holidays and I am now the proud owner of a Vintage Days table soccer stadium along with my two commissioned teams, Hornchurch Wanderers and Clapton Orient, it also has the most brilliant old style leather football plus no shoot lines on the pitch and once I have worked out how to put some pictures up you will be able to see, I also hear from another friend of mine that Vintage Days are going to be attending the world cup tourament at Chingford on the 24th although I don't think I can make it that day.

Warn said:like the formation real vintage :lol:

Well I'm not really sure if your taking this seriously or not, but the formation I used in the pics is vintage. It is roughly based on the Metodo (2–3–2–3)
this formation was devised by Vittorio Pozzo, coach of the Italian national team in the 1930s. This created a stronger defence than previous systems as well as allowing effective counterattacks. The Italian national team won back-to-back World Cups in 1934 and 1938 using this system and if it was good enough for them its good enough for me....

Not often you hear the Metodo mentioned or the other dominant formation in the 30s - the WM system.

Stadium looks great - what's the pitch made from? Is it cloth with very clever pattern died into it or some kind of modelling grass stuff - like you get for model railways? The old brown leather footballs look very realistic too with the distressed look. Very impressive.
