FIFA 98 on the PlayStation.

I doubt I would get much enjoyment out of it now but back then I loved it. Great soundtrack too.

Me and my mate Andy used to spend every Saturday morning down at Beatties (anyone remember them?) spending our pocket money on a new team each for our regular Subbuteo sessions at his house. Ahhhh, the memories.

lol yes we used to have home and away games at various houses who ever hosted provided the biscuits😁
remember playing at a mate's and his Labrador burst into the front room and onto the pitch.....carnage
Bryan Robson suffered almost career ending injuries(not unlike real life)

also remember a mate who thought he had cracked it he adapted his goalkeeper- he removed the body of another keeper and stuck it on top of his keeper...so it was a frankenstein 2 bodied super keeper...however under pressure and crap glue it exploded on trying to save a shot

Happy days mate😃

Gives a new impression to a dog pitch invasion.

Was recently looking at ebay on Subbuteo mate, did think of starting again but my all nephews aren't interested in it. One said, it's not proper football compared to FIFA 21. I still digress...

In Leeds in the mid 80s there was a shop that sold loads of subbuteo stuff, even had a hooligan pack to recreate pitch invasions / riots-not uncommon at elland road in the day

Indeed. I was at school mid 80s we played subbuteo loads, even the cricket and rugby versions

My kids think it’s boring, if it doesn’t cost £50 a game with 3D motion capture on PS4 they aren’t interested.

I still play cm 01/02 every now and again, in my opinion the best, simplest, most immersive game ever

Indeed. They have never washed up by hand, had to walk to the tv to change channel or anything.

They have no concept of the physical exertion of Daley Thompson’s Decathlon

My eldest took me to the Cambridge computer museum, a real throwback to happy times, they have original machines and games. SWOS on the Amiga etc

I'm in the process of trying to develop my own multi-format emulator so I can relive playing games such as Kevin Toms' Football Manager, Match Day (1&2), Microprose Soccer, SWOS etc again.

This in addition to continuing my FM19 career which is in season 9 at the moment.

Lee Dixon: the guy who was released by Burnley as a YTS....then won loads of honours at Arsenal.

At the time of Sterland's debut, which also saw the debut of a certain David Seaman as well, the first choice right back was Gary Stevens (as in the former Everton and Rangers right back not the Tottenham player)

Correct on all counts mate.

Mel was sold by Wednesday to Rangers for £800K on deadline day in 1989, Owls fans I recall think Rangers got him on the cheap. He promptly won a SPL title that season but was back in Yorkshire with Leeds that summer, reuniting him with Howard Wilkinson.
