      I've seen the inspiration for that Leeds badge somewhere before!!

      So some marketing company has pocketed a few grand and lazily just remembered this game and thought "ah f**k it........it's only leeds"



      Superb. The hours wasted in the early to mid 00s on Pro Evo was unreal. Pro Evo 2 was sensational and then Pro Evo 3 was simply the greatest football game ever.

      Ach you youngsters missed out on Subbuteo.

      It’s not a football game unless you can snap the base of your mates CF when he scores against you!

      Indeed it does...though from experience not when the clock is reading 80 mins into a match.

      Striker was better where you pressed the player's head to kick the ball.

      Timekeeping. It shouldn't be in the refs hands, had games this season that have barely passed the 45 minutes mark, for the ball being in play.

      What a great game. We used to have a league at school, cup draws the whole 9 yards.
      In fact if I had put as much attention into my school work as I did the Subbuteo, I might have done a tad better ;D.

      Ha ha same,good times indeed with subbuteo,the amount of stuff you could buy for your set up was brilliant  ,floodlights ,scoreboard ,seating ha ha.
      On a side note I Was disscusing subbuteo with my dad and he used to play it's precursor 'newfooty'he told me the inventor  was apparently from Liverpool so im wondering if that is why he used the word 'footy' instead of football?.

      Memories oh to be young again  ;D.
      One of the lads in our league was a huge Wolves fan and when it was your turn to play him round his house, second half you always got the end in his lounge that had the gas fire, needless to say it was always on when you were at that end, and trying to not get a scorched backside and playing was difficult, probably why he was unbeaten at home. Halcyon days................

      Think i might start a new thread called "The Little Things in Football that make you smile" ;D

      Couldn't really get into subbuteo although there was a couple of kids round our way growing up that used to have mini tournaments during the winter round their house when it was too cold and dark to actually play footy outside.
      I remember jumping up after scoring and falling on top of one of his floodlights and snapping it in half. He started crying and his Ma went nutz and threw us all out ;D
      Some of the latest accessories you can get for subbuteo nowadays are a bit over the top though, saw this :o ;

      The spit thing really is bizarre ,think migs needs to try some super glue instead ,but knowing migs he would probably glue himself to the goal line instead.....oh wait.🤔.

      This one maybe isn't so little, but it is very annoying. The overzealous killjoys who run football leagues, federations, associations, etc. All over some Big Macs.

      Should be a booking right away. Can’t wait for VAR to catch someone signing for VAR and telling the ref to book them

      Hahahs the best one was Pepe bitching about Queiroz being outside his technical area to distract the ref away from the Iran pen decision.

      Commentators being amazed by how much ground a player makes up to score a goal on the break.

      Happens almost every week and still they seem to find it amazing.
