Re: European Inter-Regional Tournamnet 2021

A short weekend update: So far, half way through the 2nd round of group fixtures. Early days yet. Today saw a rather dull 1-1 draw between Sheffield United and Newcastle. But this was followed by the Old Firm Derby - two first half goals, the second right before the half-time whistle, gave Celtic wh...

Re: Tell us about your solo leagues

Early doors managing bias was harder but it got tempered as I went along and these days it doesn't matter who's playing. For Solo Cricket, I have some short videos in the Subbuteo Cricket Revival group on Facebook and later today hoping to upload a video to YouTube. https://www.facebook.com/groups/7...

Re: Tell us about your solo leagues

I may have mentioned this elsewhere but when I decided last October to use some of the forthcoming free time to re-acquaint myself with Subbuteo, I thought I should finish the league I'd started 45 or so years ago but which got abandoned as I moved on to more grown-up teenage things! A 26 team leagu...

Re: Deliberable foul in shooting area

2 options occur to me. If FIFA rules are the basis, you'd dismiss the offender with a red card and award a direct free kick. It's not satisfactory in the real game so dissatisfaction in a Subbuteo game would be an appropriate replicant. Alternatively, if a situation of a clear goal-scoring opportuni...

And we're off. The teams line-up prior to kick-off Porto_AC_2.jpg 1st game complete. AC Milan opened the scoring early on but were quickly pegged back by the hosts. 1st goal Porto_AC.jpg Eqlzr Porto_AC.jpg But it was Porto who came from behind to win 2-1 with a well-placed 2nd half goal.

Re: Peru Change Kit 1970 World Cup

Yeah, the bases look good. I think better than if they'd been white inners/red outers

Re: European Inter-Regional Tournamnet 2021

Yep I'll post updates as we go along. Adds to the fun I cheated an had the fixtures prepared by https://www.fixturelist.com so credit where it's due. A very handy tool.

Re: European Inter-Regional Tournament 2021

Yes, I watch the TFM video. I haven't really ever thought about giving the home side an advantage TBH but I suppose there could be some merit to it. I don't have any S.American club sides so that was a quick decision to make. Not too many Euro sides either as you can see but for some reason I got at...

European Inter-Regional Tournamnet 2021

At the end of my World Cup thread I mentioned I was planning this new tournament. I've developed a format and today started organizing the fixtures. It makes use of most of the club teams in my collection with a couple of natural duplications. The tournament framework is as follows: Round 1 - Region...
