As a side note, Subbuteo is really boring if you're an only child.

Watford were the first team I ever bought. Must have been circa 1984. I also had Chile, Argentina and England from memory. Heady days.

Have dug out my old set in lockdown and my 6 year old has loved it. I had an England around 1990 set, holland/blackpool and a Man U black away kit one. Now bought a new Ireland one for a new colour!

Brazil and Ajax hand-me-downs from an older cousin.
Liverpool and Norwich when I saved up my pocket money.
Still up in the loft somewhere.

Would love an official Stevenage team!

Melchester Rovers, complete with blonde Roy Race.

I bastardised my Spain and Scotland teams to turn them into Boro (pre-stripes) home and away.

I had England and Brazil in addition to the reds and blues standard teams in the box.

I also got Leeds at some point second hand but a couple of them were missing or broken so I snapped the rest off their base and they ended up as civilian casualties and dead hostages in my box of Airfix miniature soldiers.

Those same miniature soldiers also made up most of the crowd for my Subbuteo games, despite being slightly below scale, and I hadn't even watched 'Escape to Victory'

We had a league in Knebworth with 8 of us in it with a proper fixture list and everything. We'd play each other home and away, one match per week always on a Saturday morning. I can remember some of the teams, Forton Athletic, Ingletown Rovers, Sandford Utd, Mauve Cadets, Raoul Utd and three others I forget. This went on for about 5 years from around 77 to 81.

Did you know it's called subbuteo after the Latin name for the Hobby bird of prey.

That's a fun fact Wasp! I remember going into Playland in the town centre and seeing that magnificent stack of green boxes on the wall, knowing the number you wanted and trying to find it on the small white sticker on the end of the box. The joy of finding your number was like having sex with the blonde bird in Abba.
