Re: White Hart Lane

So the day of the FA Cup Final arrived and there was a real buzz in the air as the clock ticked down towards kick-off. The teams lined up on the pitch and some were surprised when the Queen came out to greet them, accompanied by her entourage. With the Queen being a secret West Ham supporter, she wa...

Re: White Hart Lane

Ahead of the real FA Cup Final this weekend, tomorrow it is also my Subbuteo League FA Cup Final between Norwich City and Nottingham Forest. It will be an intriguing final as these two teams are amongst the most successful in my league and both reside in the top division. Norwich City have made it t...

Re: Motherwell Phil O'Donnell Stand

Stadium is looking great and the fans are so detailed.

Where did you get the ball from, looks like a nice one?

Re: Motherwell Phil O'Donnell Stand

Love the different flags for representing the different teams. I’m assuming you will reuse them in the future for other games.

As per Waccas request, would be nice to find out how you make them.

I would also like to see the full draw for your FA cup (and league if you have one)

Re: White Hart Lane

Today our ground hosted the League Cup Final between West Ham and Newcastle United The players lined up on the pitch at the beginning of the match but sadly there was no-one famous to meet them today as Prince Charles was busy meeting homeless puppies at a local rescue centre. At least the teams got...

How do you see yourself with the Subbuteo hobby?

Whenever I see articles or shows on Subbuteo I feel like there is two main sides to the hobby, the collector or serious player. I don’t think I fit in either camp. I enjoy playing the game but on my own terms, own rules, solo and just for fun. I sometimes play against another person but it’s rare. I...

Re: Motherwell Phil O'Donnell Stand

The ground does look amazing and overall the goals look the part. I have got some square goals on my White Hart Lane thread but the posts are just slightly too wide for my liking- just seems like no-one has quite nailed the perfect goal yet! Doesn’t seem like the market is big enough for someone to ...

Re: Motherwell Phil O'Donnell Stand

Lovely looking stadium and a great choice of pitch - did you glue it down?

I love the traditional English feel of your ground. How do you feel about the rounded corners on the goals, that was the only thing that stopped me from buying some too!

Re: White Hart Lane

This Saturday our ground will host the League Cup Final between West Ham and Newcastle. The grounds staff have been busy changing the ground into a special red & white colour scheme, which thanks to our sponsors, will not conflict with the colours of the two teams. Sadly our digital advertising ...

Re: White Hart Lane

They are about £10 each and I think I will need 6 at each end, so will cost a few £'s. They come from China so the quality is a bit hit and miss, one of mine has already gone wrong. It would be great to surround the whole pitch but it would be a pain to have to turn each one on & off again so I ...

Just seen it on record after the Bargain Hunt episode aired yesterday.

Good job spreading the word of our fantastic hobby - you looked absolutely frozen though :-)

Re: White Hart Lane

It’s been a while since I did an update but I after a long wait for a special delivery, I now have some digital advertising boards. I only ordered a few to test, but hope to add some more as they are the right size to go around the pitch and bring a modern touch to my stadium… 7832F96D-FA32-403A-AB0...

Re: Company that Subbuteo needs?

I would like a company like Hornby to own Subbuteo as I think they would do a better job than the current owner. I see the current Subbuteo items as cheap, a long way from the original quality and unappealing. Sadly, with football licensing at such a premium, especially for the Premier League, plus ...

Re: SUBBUTEO COLLECTORS FAIR

Hi Vikash, great news and pleased to hear about your super haul. Are you building a stadium for your players? I have a thread under the stadium section where my build is ‘slowly’ taking shape, that’s only if the children don’t decide to take over the room first ;-) Take care friend and I will look f...
