We have set a date of sunday 30th october for lionhearts to be held at Steve's stadium of fingers in southend.



please put your name down here asap and please do let us know one way or the other if you can make it.



so far we have:-



Me

Lee

Steve M

Gerald




it has sensibly suggested that for those of us coming from the west it would save money to car share.

I can fit five in my car and i am happy to drive and share petrol costs for those who are coming from anyhwere near this area.



cheers



jon

Appreciate that, Jon.

I would love to go. I'm sure it will be a great afternoon.

It's not just approximately 6 hours driving for a flick. It also means that I would spend precious little time there, if I wanted to then make it back for the kids bedtime, which I place a far greater value on. Throw in the cost, and it becomes prohibitive.

Hope you all have a great time.

Take plenty of photos, and perhaps a video recording?

Excellent can't wait...it's gonna be mayhem.

I'm bringing my fav team for this special occasion. The boys have been training, not since the early 80's for most of them. Some like Tom are still keeping fit with their postman rounds though. Cheese is running his pub still, so won't be leaping like a Salmon anymore...and the last time i saw Gerry Gow he still looked hard as nails...so watch out boys. I've been stretching as well...for those hard to reach flicks... Laughing

They're ready to go... Very Happy

I forgot about that! Very Happy

I can concur there will be many tippy-toe moments, where enthusiastic lionhearts will attempt (forlornly) to get behind the player they are shooting with!! scratch

It will be Ok if you've warmed up with a game on one of the other tables first, but Jon and Lee are first up in the Stadium of Fingers, and are both dead certs for hamstring pulls for the rest of the afternoon! Laughing

Glad you checked Lee - we were in Exeter last Sunday!

Also, Daniel Fox is now in so the latest is:

Gerald

Lee

Daniel

Jim with Dee

Ian

Steve M

Just a quick note re some roadworks near the venue.
When you get pretty close to the venue, te right turn of the A13 may not be accessible. If not, just do the next available right and wiggle your way round that way...

Guy's can Daniel take my place please.

I'm really gutted, I've left it to the last minute, hoping i'd feel better, but i've had Flu and a temperature all week. I'd hate to pass it on, and tbh, I feel like crap.

So sorry...

I hope you all have a great time. Once again, I'm sorry for letting you good folks down, and i'm gutted i'm not going to be there to experience the Stadium of Fingers.

To make a Subbuteo stadium - 35 years of hard labour.
To prepare for a Sunday in the Subbuteo Room - A manic Saturday afternoon
Seeing grown men reverting to a '10'year-old' mentality - priceless! Laughing

Thanks for making the effort folks, it was great to sit downstairs and watch the game being played upstairs. As suspected, Dee was a first-rated director, with a natural command and control style over her camera slave (...and yes, the Freudian slip changing 'blimp-cam' to 'gimp-cam', was fairly apt! Laughing )

Great to watch MOTD afterwards, with the first televised flood-lit game in the SoF in its permanent home! Very Happy

Sounds like you had fun chaps. Shame I missed out. Would have loved to have been their and played with you guys. Hope you are all good.

Foxy...where have you been? Haven't seen you on here for ages. I miss reading about your Solo stuff.

Bloody England and it's crappy flu ridden atmosphere. Always this time of year...what's that all about?

BTW...Did Foxy wear his Platforms Laughing

Nearly did Lee - here was your closest effort!
(There will defo be a next time! Wink )
http://www.flickr.com/photos/21867275@N00/6316597428/in/photostream

BTW, what happened to you after you lost posession to Daniel in the clip below?
Nowhere to be seen! scratch
Did you pop downstairs to watch his attack on the telly in the lounge?? Laughing
http://www.flickr.com/photos/21867275@N00/6316384246/in/photostream

Your defending was very entertaining though!
Here's your kicking goalie flying head first into the picket fence... Shocked
http://www.flickr.com/photos/21867275@N00/6315876623/in/photostream

...and what about this for defensive skill - the player blocks the shot, backward somersaults to trap the ball and nestle it back to the goalie!! Shocked
And then runs to the edge of the box to get the return ball!! Cool

...and here's a few clips of Jim's first match in the SoF...

Jim's first flick....
http://www.flickr.com/photos/21867275@N00/6315886449/in/photostream

Jim's first shot...
http://www.flickr.com/photos/21867275@N00/6315896535/in/photostream

Jim's first goal...using my blocking player to lift the ball over my goalie. Cool
The scoring player leaps into the crowd to celebrate his goal! Laughing



My equalising goal (where I had to ask the cameraman to include the top-right on the goal in the picture. Then flukily blasted the ball in the top right!)
http://www.flickr.com/photos/21867275@N00/6316469902/in/photostream

Jim's controversial winner...

Many thanks for sharing, Steve. Cool

It looks like you all had immense fun (which is what it should all be about). Wink

Don't want to sound greedy, but what about some videos of the floodlit games? Rolling Eyes

No probs Takis.
An oversight on my part - should've included one from the floodlit game.

Here's a couple of minutes showing a few camera angles, a bit of banter, a close effort from Lee, the use of both a corner-kicker and throw-in figure, and a goal by Jim to boot! Smile
Not bad for a couple of minutes... Very Happy
