Re: Best way to conduct competitions?

Really disappointing Cup run from Spurs there - especially when the year ends in 1 !

Mourinho needs to stop trying to park the bus and be more attacking :lol!:

Tell us about your solo leagues

As we are all stuck under lockdown and Subbuteo is having a bit of a resurgence, I thought it would be interesting to share details of any solo leagues that are out there. My solo league has been ongoing for 36 years now, although there have been a few large gaps where real life has got in the way. ...

Re: Deliberable foul in shooting area

Thanks all, I think I will incorporate some of that into my rule set, just got to work out which will fit the best. I may tweek my defensive moves too, as like someone said, a defensive move every time can cause issues with the flow of the game. Man Utd still won the game 3-2 so luckily Liverpool’s ...

Re: Deliberable foul in shooting area

Thanks for the info. I like your idea (b) of returning the ball to the approx position and playing an advantage, although it feels like the defending team should be penalised further than just having a shot against them and a player moved out of harms way. When the incident happened, it was such a g...

Deliberable foul in shooting area

Hi all I play a solo league and accidentally came across a very unusual, and unexpected situation today when Man Utd were playing Liverpool at Old Trafford - had to happen during this match didnt it! :evil: My solo rules state that 1. If a defending player touches either an attacking player or ball ...

Re: White Hart Lane

Just a quick update today. It is time to return to my top division solo matches, so I have added the Premier league advertising around my pitch. There ar some more Premier league banners in the post, but this gives the idea of how the interchangeable advertising works...

Re: A Solo Subbuteo Blog

Hi, I enjoyed reading your blog and seeing some thoughts of another solo player. I too have been playing solo for over 30 years and have developed my own set of rules. One of the hardest things as a solo player is to be unbiased when playing your own team. I take penalties from behind the goal and h...

Re: White Hart Lane

The fencing has been permanently installed around the pitch now, with a gap left by the dugouts for the players to get on & off the pitch. E6D7D671-35C5-4BE3-BFBC-AC60C5A19626.jpeg I have now moved in to the next part of the stadium build and it’s something I hope will be original to White Hart ...

Re: White Hart Lane

Work has continued at White Hart Lane. The advertising fencing is starting to be installed. The adverts can be changed to go with the match that is being played, so I can add Premier League or Champions League adverts etc.. thanks to some special magnets. 41768C30-B3D4-4540-9B40-584E93362D1C.jpeg 22...

Re: White Hart Lane

The pitch has now been laid - had a few issues with the repositioning glue because it is a spray it is difficult to get the right amount across the board. The pitch began to bubble underneath but with some weights I managed to avert a disaster. I am now working on the fencing around the pitch, but a...

Re: White Hart Lane

Work has finally begun on White Hart Lane. Sadly, a lot of time has gone into building the stadium 'foundations' which is quite unexciting but will hopefully be worth the effort in the long run. The Subbuteo table has been designed with removable sides, so that the stands can be removed and stored u...

White Hart Lane

After many years of loving Subbuteo and stadiums, I have decided to try and create a new stadium based on the White Hart Lane from the early 2000's. I have plenty of ideas to incorporate, but I do not want to give too much away at the moment, as its nice to have a few surprises. I will mainly be usi...
