Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season BL13.

Replay result: Swainson 1-2 Peakville (a.e.t.). After Jimmy Spencer scored for Swainson, midway through the first half, this game looked to be heading for a routine, if unspectacular, finish, as the home side appeared to be playing comfortably, although without looking like increasing their lead. No...

Re: Deliberable foul in shooting area

Perhaps an old sixties rule could prevent a similar incident from happening again.

If the attacker wishes to shoot, he may call "Shooting", which cancels the immediate blocking flick, making the shot a duel involving only the forward and goalkeeper.

Re: House rules for spicing up Solo play?

I fully agree that solo matches are much more interesting and meaningful if the players are numbered and therefore can be named. I think I would be lost these days if I didn't have a perception of, at least, each team's formation. Although my matches are much more "Pendle Falcon" than &quo...

Re: Best way to conduct competitions?

I think what you're doing is fascinating.

You appear to be finding out what suits your play, and what produces the most enjoyable matches, which may not be the same player type.

It's interesting to follow, and the matches certainly aren't going to be repetitive.

Thank you for all the info so far.

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season BL13.

Thank you for your interest, SGL. It's always good to see a traditional club do well. The present Melchester Rovers side can't afford to contain as many "greats" as previously, and is a little slower and less "gung ho" than in their halcyon days However, the club remains attack-m...

Re: Winter World Cup 2020

After all these years, we can see what might have happened if England had played that fantastic Hungarian side in 1966!

If only they could have found a goalkeeper of equivalent quality to many of their outfield players.

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season BL13.

Pigeon arrived, probably during dinner, and brought this report. Division Three; Molton United 2, Swainson 0. This match was always likely to be pacey, as Molton, in particular, like to get the ball upfield quickly and play through passes for their pacet strikers to run onto However, the opening qua...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season BL13.

Christmas Day football. Division Two: South Barsham 1, Mill Athletic 1. The early action in this game was mostly in the home team's half, and the first shot came from Evans, after keeper Wilmot's goal kick was deflected to him. Wilmot made mends for the misfortune by turning the shot away for a cor...

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season BL13.

All very even in D1, except for Flimside steamrollering on. A goal in each half, scorers Nick Barmby and Freddie Ladapo, overcame Greyston, in a very good performance from the surprise leaders. Next up for them is a trip to Eastroke, so we hope for a game suitable for the occasion. In the other divi...
