Ordered it for the boys amid some fanfare a few years back.

Now gathering dust under some cupboard upstairs. That’s the internet for ya.

Was quite difficult to judge the power of flick needed for passing.

Re: Subbuteo
I can still remember some of the team numbers:
West Ham - 209
Norwich - 28
Liverpool - 41
Bolton - 154
Nottingham Forest - 1
Arsenal - 232
Mansfield - 47
Darlington - 81
Ipswich - 219
Bristol Rovers - 12


Someone made a cock up at the factory, as my Ipswich team had a Leicester City player in it.

It was supposed to be table top but no-one had a big enough table. Myself and one of my mates managed to get our pitches nailed down onto chipboard.

when I was about 10/11 a friend of mine had that ice hockey game. I loved it.
Ive got an idea its still in production. I saw it in a shop in Perth a few years ago.

I think Super Striker had the diving goalies wheras the ones in Striker sort of swiveled and threw the ball into their own net if you got it wrong.

Re: Subbuteo
I always played Super Striker although not sure what the difference was from striker?! Had the Subbuteo Rugby though which I remember as interesting!!

Re: Subbuteo
I had that ice hockey game where the players were moved up and down grooves with handles you'd twist to strike the puck.

You could get some serious action with that.

Used to play for the FA cup from 3rd round and got the right hump if I didn't draw West Ham.

Re: Subbuteo
Didn’t realise Hitler invented it.
Great game, only spoiled when some fat cunt put an elbow or knee on one of your players and you had to glue the cunt back together again..
Still have my 80’s Hammers teams home and away, got rid of the rest of it.
Blow football with the straws was a bit of a corker game as well, spit and dribble everywhere in the end, like my cock after a filthy wench has milked it

Re: Subbuteo
Gary, no, had one or two others, the only other one I can remember is Hibs.

Still have the West Ham players stashed away somewhere....we used to put the little numbers you could get on their backs so the league also had top scorer records. Ray Stewart was always near the top ....lots of penalties in Subbuteo.

Re: Subbuteo
Also, spare a thought for the army of workers painting the teams, especially the ones in stripes. What a job.

Re: Subbuteo
The huge ball bigger than the players ruined it for me.

Yes I know you could get the smaller white ones

Exeter

didnt you have an Exeter team too ?

Northern Sold 1:46 Tue Dec 24
Re: Subbuteo
My main team was the Dutch team... 1978'ish... total football... plenty of Arie Haan 50 yard specials from the half way line

WHU(Exeter) 1:42 Tue Dec 24
Re: Subbuteo
We had leagues as a kid - home and away.

The basic keepers were better than the ones with their arms extended . none of the add ons like the corner kickers or throw in takers.

Had West Ham, the basic blue and red ones that you got with the set, England, Peru and Argentina

Loved the little booklets you got that showed all the teams you could buy - one place in Exeter used to keep the whole lot, the teams were kept in catalogue number order in drawers.

Re: Subbuteo
Always thought it was absolute shit - the only good thing was that you could buy the West Ham team. Did anyone actually play the game? So shit
