"The makers of Subbuteo were ahead of the competition, producing an all-weather orange football that could not possibly be used for what it was intended. Yet such was my devotion to recreating that big match atmosphere in my living room that I once dusted my pitch with my mum’s flour, sellotaping over the touchlines, just so I could use those very same balls I had recently rediscovered. I’d hazard a guess that I was not the only one who went to such extremes."
