Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season BL11

Apologies for the late publication of results this week. This was due to technical issues, as they say. In fact, I suffered a router breakdown last Friday and have been offline for five days. Division One: Mill Athletic 2 ( Stuart, Jones) , Aberdither Utd 1 ( Royle ). Brimpton Rov 3 (Barnes 3) , Pre...

Re: Welcome to the Forum

Welcome to the forum, PP. May you have at least as much fun from the game now as you had a generation ago. Subbuteo may not be as high profile as it was back then, but you will be able to find much advice on here relating to whatever aspect of the game, and the ways it is now played, that you enjoy ...

Re: Burnley Rules

Thought I would provide some feedback on how I am finding the game after introducing the Burnley Rules. At first I only applied them when the ball was in the team's own half. It opened up the games and added extra interest. However, teams gradually found ways of 'tightening up' in defence and the sc...

Re: SOLO PLAYERS RULES AND LEADS ?

Your original question fascinated me, and set me thinking of how and why I first started playing a solo league, back in my school days. I took to Subbuteo instantly, and I enjoyed learning and developing the game. The extra dimension was added by being able to put real players into teams and each of...

Re: shots power

Good to know that you're still playing, Sam. The issue isn't unique to you, and I can't claim to be an expert, but I find that I often achieve better shots by trying to ensure the player makes a perfect contact with the ball, rather than by putting too much extra power into the flick. I find that wh...

Re: Burnley Rules

Thank you. I'm still in favour of precision over speed but continue to find the flats, in particular, sometimes have a will of their own. Not that I'm suggesting it's always their fault!

Re: Burnley Rules

Thank you for taking the trouble to publish these updated Burnley Rules. I found them a most interesting read. The idea of flicking when organising is something new (to me at least) but I have a question about the procedure if it should go wrong. What happens if a figure leaves the shooting area, fa...

Re: What LP Are You Listening To Right Now?

Hadn't realised it has been so long since a contribution was made nere. When I'm browsing or posting something on late in the evening, I find some vintage Moody Blues or Stevie Wonder a good listen.

Re: Brookfield Solo League: Season 09

Teleprinter time: "We await today's results as they arrive from the teleprinter. We are expecting them to start to arrive any moment:" D1 Brimpton Rov 3, Aberdither Utd 1. Good finish from Brimpton, but we doubt whether Aberditherr will be happy. D2 Pressley Rang 2, Blundell City 0. The first of the...
