Zlatan Ibrahimovic V's England


What a player, what a game and what a goal by Zlatan in the game V's England in the International friendly.

Zlatan scored all of Sweden's goals as they battered England 4-2.



The moment Zlatan struck the ball to score his 4th of the game with an amazing overhead kick.

A Time For Family




I have not posted here for a while due to the rush of Christmas orders. I have many many photo's of figures and teams I would like to post but due to nearly all the figures and teams are presents I am unable to show them yet.

So in the meantime I am going to show a request which really caught my imagination.

This figure was a request from Italy who wanted Father and Son figures wearing the Milan Home kit on one base to put upon their Birthday cake.

I have been told that everyone enjoyed the figure and that it looked much better in person.


Luca and Leonardo on their way to the game.


Happy 1st and 36th Birthday





This request inspired me to create one for myself and my son who also turned one recently.


In Brazil for his first Birthday, it only seemed right to be wearing the Brazil home kit.

This is the first time I have shown these publicly but coincidently I already have made others like this as requests.

The Three Wise Men - Ferguson, Mourinho and Wenger



By popular demand here we have 'The Three Wise Men' of the managerial world of football.




First of we have the legendary Man Utd manager Sir Alex Ferguson, one of the greatest managers of all time winning nearly everything available in football.


Sir Alex Ferguson famously telling the ref the time.



Secondly we have the self proclaimed 'Special One' Jose Mourinho manager of Real Madrid, here is one of his most famous quotes:

“Please don’t call me arrogant, but I’m European champion and I think I’m a special one.”


The Jose Mourinho 'Power Slide'.



Lastly we have Arsene Wenger manager of Arsenal for the last 16 years. In 2011 it was announced that Wenger was voted 'World Coach of the Decade' by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics. The organization aggregated the results from each year of the decade, and Wenger had narrowly beaten Ferguson and Mourinho for the honour.

It Started With a Handshake




The request for the figure below came from the author of the ebook It Started With a Handshake, Diarmuid O hAinle.  I'll leave it to him to explain the significance of the captured moment...





"So, as the topless captain left the fray carrying an Oranje shirt in his left hand, McCarthy reached out for his right.  A quick look and it was given before the Corkman turned away again and continued on his journey to the changing rooms."

The above refers to a handshake between the manager of Ireland, Mick McCarthy, and his captain, Roy Keane, immediately after a 2001 victory over Holland which put the Irish well on the way to qualifying for the 2002 World Cup. It's an incident that many people in Ireland hold as being a key indicator of the relationship between the two men, which famously came to a head in Saipan days before the tournament began.  Roy Keane left his teammates and returned home, leaving a nation wondering what might have been.



The handshake is referred to in the title of my book, an alternative take on Ireland's campaign in Japan & South Korea, as despite there being animosity between the two men prior to that moment, it acts as a year dot to all that followed.  A nation was to be divided over the controversy and Irish football was never the same again.

I'm hugely grateful and proud to see the scene frozen in the form of Subbuteo.  It's a piece of history that I think, even when looked at ruefully, should take pride of place on every Irish football fan's mantelpiece.

Subbuteo Art in Brazil



There has not been much activity from myself over the last few weeks due to relocating to Brazil from England for family reasons.

It was a very rushed move and so I have not been able to set myself up properly regarding my painting. It has taken some time to find the correct paint and I will be start painting again very very soon.

There are many new ideas and figures coming soon so please keep a lookout for these.

If there are any teams, single figures or special requests please get in contact from the three following options:

Puyol and Pep - Barcelona Royalty


Here we have two members of the Barcelona Royalty.

Carles Puyol and Josep 'Pep' Guardiola.

This requested figure was a very difficult challenge but I am very happy with the results and I am very happy to say so is the recipient Scott who has said that they look even better in person.




It is always a challenge to fit two figures onto one base but also the complexity of the poses with the arms folded was surprisingly difficult to get right.


More figures coming soon......
