A very nice trophy, well worth playing for.

Your Scottish League remains tight, with goals at a premium. Do you think it's just because of the LW's, or influenced because the four teams are evenly matched, and don't want to give anything away?

Going back, just a little, to your Chelsea v Newcastle match, I often find some of the most enjoyable matches to play are the low-scoring tight ones, whether it's because of a few missed chances or defences simply playing well, with players in the right places, by intended placement or just the run of the ball.
The low scoring in my SPL is definitely 'cos its LWs. But it's a level playing field when all 4 teams are using them.

RE: Chelsea v Newcastle. Yes the tighter games are much more enjoyable. In fact it's amazing how much you end up enjoying it.

Well thanks to Bob the builder and Fireman Sam I managed to play the 3 matches after all! :clap: :guiness: :guiness: :guiness: :clap:

WBA 1-0 Stoke. A much needed win for the LPM from the Hawthorns. A win here and Stoke would go joint top, but wasn't to be.
Man C 0-1 Notts F. Still no wins for city as Forest now top the table.
Everton 1-0 S'land. Everton move into the top 4 as S'land also miss the chance to go top.


1 Notts For 5 3 1 1 5 3 10
2 Man U 4 3 0 1 5 2 9
3 Leeds 4 2 2 0 5 3 8
4 Everton 5 2 2 1 5 4 8
5 Burnley 4 2 1 1 8 7 7
6 Liverpool 5 2 1 2 6 6 7
7 Sunderland 5 2 1 2 6 6 7
8 Spurs 4 2 1 1 5 4 7
9 Stoke 4 2 0 2 5 5 6
10 WBA 5 2 0 3 5 7 6

European friendly.
I got the chance this evening to play a solo match between Juventus and Bayern Munich while the wife and kids were distracted by X Factor. I just wanted to see how the modern bases, zeugo and sureshot performed on the baize. I still think that the only real difference is in when it comes to shooting. These two types of bases are almost impossible to curl. Anyway it ended up Juventus 1-1 B Munich.

Very impressive video; hope your competition goes well.

It will be very good to see some illustrations of the Champions League this season, now that the powers-that-be have decided to charge the ordinary fan even more money to watch any of it!

Unbelievable Jeff!

Shock in the SPL as Dundee go from bottom to top in this very close league. They become the first team to score two goals in the SPL this season as they beat top of the table Rangers 2-0, who suffer their first defeat.

The other match ended Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen. The main talking point from this game was a horror injury to one of the Aberdeen players. In the process of making contact with the ball while scoring Aberdeen's goal the figure was thrown from his base in what appeared to be a freak leg break just below the knees. But on closer inspection it was discovered and confirmed that the very same figure had been re-glued back in the mid 80s. So it was just a case of an old injury coming back to haunt him. But in true sporting Subbuteo fashion Celtic also played out the rest of the game with only 10 men.

Good to learn that the highest standards of sportsmanship still exist; hope the Aberdeen player makes a full recovery.

The very first year I followed football, Dundee won the Scottish League. The following season they reached the semi-finals of the European Cup. Bob Shankly, brother of Bill, was manager. They were not the last British team of that period to exit the competition, in rather controversial circumstances, at the San Siro. If they were to qualify for the Champios League, over in Donegal, it wouldn't be quite the surprise it might appear.

Very interesting. What happened at the San Siro?

Aberdeen injury update.
The figure that was debased against Celtic on Wed evening has been re glued. But as a precaution, the rest of the team have been inspected and it's with great sadness that it has been decided to withdraw them from anymore subbuteo activity other than for display and nostalgic purposes. Too many of them have been re glued a number of times. The Aberdeen LW team will be replaced by an all red HW team. See pics below.
Some members of the Aberdeen team, and these are the best of them!, that has now been withdrawn.

I don't know what team I desecrated with my dodgy paint job in the 80s but I remember using my sisters nail varnish to colour my own Liverpool/Aberdeen team. So their playing days are finally over but I will check in on them now and again. Thanks for the memories.

Aberdeen LW team withdrawal update:

The HW team that was going to be used to replace the Aberdeen team will now not have to be used after all. Thank God as I was afraid of them crashing onto our hard tiled kitchen floor and breaking on impact. Thanks to the generosity of BlackpoolRocks, a new LW Aberdeen will take to the baize in the next set of fixtures. :clap: :clap: :clap:

The new Aberdeen team.

Tonight's SPL results.
Rangers 1-0 Aberdeen. A late goal spoils the new Aberdeen team's debut.
Dundee 0-1 Celtic. The bhoys take over at the top once again.

Seire A. First round of matches:
AC Milan 2-0 Lazio. Milan took their chances well. That was the difference.
Napoli 0-0 Inter. A cagey opening match from both sides.
Roma 4-3 Juventus. The shooting power of these bases, sureshot & zeugo, was very evident in this cracking game. Roma also missed a penalty! Juventus equalised in the last minute only for Roma to grab a winner in the dying seconds.

Table---------P-----PTS---GD---Bases
AC Milan----1------3---- +2----s'footy
Juventus---1------3---- +1----s'shot
Inter--------1------1---- -=----total s.
Napoli------1------1---- -=--- Hasbro
Roma-------1------0----- -1---zeugo
Lazio-------1------0----- -2---PL 2012.
