I bet you still have the magazine with the letter in it somewhere. Any chance of posting it?

Unfortunately not. Pretty sure the letter was regarding how Tailz was a great addition to the Sonic Universe or that Dr Robotnic was a ginger mousered c**t.

Image result for subbuteo old stadium

 

 

The subbuteo leagues in the 80s were a serious business.  Who can forget the pain of kneeling on a man, removing pieces from your knee for days and ruining your team.

My favourite team was the brazil one I got for sending away pickled onion tudor crisp bags.

See the source image

 

 

Who'd have thunk Tudor would have released crisps tasting of sweaty fuckers from Barnsley.

In other news, this was definitely the poor relation to Subbuteo.

He-Man was some boy - defending Castle Greyskull and battering Skeletor through the week then curling in 25 yarders into the top corner for Melchester Rovers on the weekend.

If my old man was working away, he used to bring me one of those back. That time he was away for six months and came back every other weekend was glorious.

There was also a team that appeared in these comics called United, with such players as Hedgehog Jones and Josh "Cuppa" Tee.

Hedgehog Jones with the Mohican! I’d forgotten all about that.

Once the gears broke, it was like trying to pedal a tank at times.

Or once somebody stole your gear chain while it was outside the shops. 

Eta: This thing.

You know that's not actually been used seeing as neither goalie has been snapped yet.

Eta:  It also somewhat randomly reminds of how very few of the 42 SPFL teams play in red home strips, despite the above representing your stereotypical football game.   Basically Aberdeen, Brechin & (at a push) Stirling.  Also only four of out of the HL and LL (Brora, Deveronvale, Lossie & Civil Service Strollers).   So 7 out of 75 (<10%).

Hot Shot Hamish was the man. I think he played for Princes Park. I got a letter published, helpfully pointing out that the crowds in the background were excessive for a Scottish lower league side, which won me a tenner

Most of my Subbuteo players suffered double leg breaks, some of them multiple times. Fortunately, Airfix glue worked better than any modern physio treatment. One of my Scotland players just had a big blob of glue instead of legs and was notably shorter than the rest. I decided he was Billy Bremner and played him in midfield. The boy could curve around the opposition players like a dream.

Or a black widow catapult, remember firing marbles and steelies out if it.
