This was possibly my favourite as you could use any of your Matchbox cars by sticking an adapter to the underside.



Apparently this was Peter Kay's best ever Christmas present.

Did I ever mention that I was in Minder?

Loved it.

And the old reliables of Lego, Subbuteo and Matchbox cars.

I think I would have loved Scalextric too if I wasn't so unbelievably sh1te at it. I could not slow down - crash, fumble, start again, full throttle, crash, fumble, start again....ah fugg it, where's me lego?


Brian, one of your mates was putting Fairy Liquid on your speed chicane. Dirty trick that.

Subbeteo was top toy. Many and hour arguing with the boys I still go to football with. We had leagues and cups with 2 teams each so 16 in all. Down in mums kitchen in Goodwin road on a Sunday night when dad was down the Kent house club. Happy days


Me and a classmate set up a subbuteo League at grammar school in about 1976. A lot of our posh class mates had never even heard of it but one by one they joined in.Then we discovered drugs.

Anyone remember this or what it was called? Used to play with my Grandad for hours!


Now that was a blast from the past. Had it myself but for the life of me cannot remember what it was called.

I used to put my matchbox cars on the track and race those, we had one with a wooden handle, purchased for my brother in the 60’s and that was definitely blister central.

When ever i see a busted player i always think of Trev.

Subbuteo is without doubt worthy of its own thread.

My many Subbuteo memories include my mate making a discovery that there would sometimes be one player in a team that, if you held it by the body and shook it, the base would make a rattling sound, this player would always be played up front and given the nickname The Rattler and whenever the rattler scored you would shout out ”Rattler!” or ”Rattler strikes again!” It was tacitly implied that this player was either European or South American. The first thing on buying a new team was always to shake each player to see if your box contained one of these exotic rattling rarities.

Also having shït-loads of Lego I would build my own stadiums around the pitch. These stadiums (stadia?) were works of art even if I do say so myself - way ahead of their time. The terraces and exits looked so cool as if designed by 20th Century Dutch Abstract Artist Piet Mondrian and I even had the team names patterned on the outside walls of the stands - often QPR but sometimes the Sunday morning team my Uncle played for.

One Saturday night after a hard evening’s construction and subbuteo-ing I left my proud work in the middle of the front room then turned the lights off to get the full impact of whatever Hammer Horror film was on. Dad comes in from the pub and accidentally stomps all over the bespoke Lego terracing cussing to high heaven and almost falling head-first into the television. For me this will always be known as the great mid-70s Subbuteo Stadium disaster. The subsequent enquiry, the What the fcuk is that shit doing in the middle of the floor!? Report led to a complete ban of all Subbuteo from the living room.
