best non computer football game?

Talking to my dad about this and he loved subbuteo and would play with friends for hours and another game he still has but is now defunct was called logatta...very indepth football dice game...you had a league of 18 teams playing home and away the first 5 games home team had blue numbered dice and away team had red dice with a couple more 0's on it like a handicap..after those 5 games completed you wrote up league table and when teams start playing each other the points difference decided on which other coloured dice you would use...so a handicap system came into play...you did that with league/cup/euros etc and it gets addictive....i'll take his word on that one:-)...so come on guys what games did you play or maybe still do.

i actually designed my own game and sold it on the internet years ago. i packed it all up though as it wasnt worth the work. it was with real players names and clubs and you played it with dice and cards and a pitch etc. it was just around the time board games were becoming dinosaurs and being overtaken by computer games. i had subbuteo but just never found anyone to play with. everyone seemed to hate it. oh well.

Apart from having the hammers (obviously!!) i had the 1974 world cup teams (showing me age now) West Germany v Holland i thought they were the boll*x!! funny, i was talking to my son about subbuteo the other day,he found it hilarious that we could get enjoyment out of flicking players round on a a bit of cloth!!Another game i liked was "striker",from the 70s,pressed the players heads down & the leg would kick the ball,we were easily pleased in those days!!...

I was a big fan of Striker in the 70's as a saucepan and Subbuteo. Trouble with that was I kept kneeling on the players and my Grandad had to araldite them in those days. All looked like they had no legs....

I just had a little set, about the size of a dinner tray, but it was hours of fun.
