Love a bit of subbuteo. Never understood those who bought the full stands though as they got in the way of playing the game.

Subbuteo poll:

Standard pitch or Astropitch?

Rigid or sprung goalkeeper?

Separate pivoting goal kicker or use your right/left back?

Full size Adidas Tango/mitre delta or the smaller, lighter balls that you could easily blast over the bar?

World cup or European cup goals (the former being the deeper ones, the latter very shallow resembling a trampoline like qprs old nets)?

That’s far too good to be called busy.

I have actually got back into subbuteo in last 2-3 years.....managed to buy a millwall team in 2010-11 kit. I belive a team in our kit from 2 seasons ago is also available.....

The picture posted by Waterloo I saw a few months back on a subbuteo forum.....(yes there is such a thing).

AstroTurf pitch

Rigid goal keeper

Use full back for goal kicks

And adidas tango balls

The goals I use are Euro 96 series

Representing Millwall at Subbuteto back in the last 1960s led to one of the scariest moments of my childhood.

When I was about 10 I was part of a Subbuteto League played by classmates of my brother, five years older than me, where you would play them, literally, home and away. Another player had to referee....all very organised. I remember there was Fulham, Chelsea, Manchester United, Aston Villa, Millwall and one other.

I was 2-0 up at Aston Villa (Possee, Weller) when my host's mum opened the door to see if there was anything we wanted. Yes, for her to go away so we could continue with the game.

By mistake she left the door open and before I knew it I had a full size Alsatian pounce on me, knocking me flying, and start ripping at my clothes, arms, head, the lot. The parents somehow dragged the frenzied dog off me and, leaking blood here and there, I was rushed to the nearby doctor's and I think hospital where I was given injections and patched up.

The Alsatian was put down and the game was never completed but the 2-0 score stood.

Never straightforward being Wall....

You are joking right arthur? Wasn't that the game with the ball in two different colours to determine possession? If I'm thinking of the right game it was utter shit compared with subbuteo.

The most remarkable thing about that is that you remember who scored our goals!

Poor Alsatian getting put down.

Can't be that game, KoJ: Arthur doesn't do two different colours...

Back in the 80s a mate wrote an article for a non league mag listing various special subbuteo editions. Off the top of my head i remember 2 of them;

The Luton Town edition - you play on your own as you won't let anyone else into your home.

The Wycombe Wanderes edition (from their old ground of Loakes Park) - recreate the famous sloping pitch at Wycombe Wanderers by sawing an inch off of two of the legs of the table that you are playing on. Note that this edition is not reccomended for those who play on the floor as it can be dangerous to dismantle the foundations of your house.

I was pretty saddened by that, also. We didn't ask them to: it was a decision by the parents who owned it and my friend, Steve (Aston Villa), was absolutely heart-broken.

I've never owned a dog, though I did get very close to one once: it was owned by my French girlfriend's parents. I would take it for walks in the forest every day and back at the house we would roll about the floor fighting each other.

You guessed it: it was an Alsatian...

It is unfortunate, but many dog attack stories involve German Shepherds. They seem to be prone to having a rush of blood to the head more often than other breeds.
I don't think there is an easy answer to it.
It is not unusual for those working in the police to take a nip out of a copper's backside by mistake.
So, it's not all bad news!

My step father had one when he married my mother. The dog became very protective of my mother.
If my mother left the room leaving me alone with the dog, it started giving me the evil eye, and growling slowly.
I love dogs, but I never turned my back on that one, nor remained alone with it for long.
As soon as my mother re-entered the room, the dog settled down and ignored me. It was very unsettling, and in my opinion a very dangerous dog indeed.

Subbuteo poll:

Standard pitch or Astropitch?

Rigid or sprung goalkeeper?

Separate pivoting goal kicker or use your right/left back?

Full size Adidas Tango/mitre delta or the smaller, lighter balls that you could easily blast over the bar?

World cup or European cup goals (the former being the deeper ones, the latter very shallow resembling a trampoline like qprs old nets)?



Felt pich

Rigid keeper

Definitively the smaller balls. I loved the orange ones for a snow covered pitch.

We had the deep goals but they were very susceptible to being crunched. We bandaged them using matches and thread to stabilise them cos glue alone wouldn't do.

Oh yes, and we glued the players we crunched and they kept getting smaller and smaller ... great times.
