Perhaps the 1.3m win and the 480k stake were different bets? Or maybe arithmetic works differently in different parts of the country.

Irish don't count as British I think you'll find (unless you're still working with a pre-1921 atlas).

Mase I don't know what you have against Newcastle, but as you're usually completely wrong about everything else then I'm quite pleased that you don't like us. :lol:  They could have bought 10million pints of beer and drowned Old Trafford, instead of buying that annoying Brazilian Bloop. Actually, i...

My point is not to change the main part of the logo in the short term, just to add a name to it (underneath above whatever) I would personally settle for the compromise of keeping the existing logo but writing the words TABLE FOOTBALL somewhere. Or even just writing BRITFOOS. This doesn't necessari...

They said September 1st. But it's moving to somewhere only 3 mins away, where Riley's snooker used to be.  Give me a shout if you fancy some games on their table before they move.

Table football articles in The Times

While I was browsing the The Times online archive for a project, the idea popped into my head to do a search for "table football" and see what they had. Here are some results: (note: I also tried foosball and nothing relevant came up) 22/12/1930, pg 9: Novelties for Christmas Gifts. The week-end Chr...
