    This week on the podcast we'll conclude our episode on Subbuteo as a working class experience by looking at whether or not the game is in danger of gentrification. Is the cost of collecting and the price of modern bases simply pricing a new generation of working class kids out of taking up the game.

Finger flicking’ great

I was directed to this podcast via the TFM Facebook page and was so glad I followed the link. Fantastic piece of nostalgia and loved every minute. I have to say that collectors didn’t exist in the seventies because we had so little money!! My kids can’t believe that we only had birthday and Christmas money so it was a huge event to go to the toyshop (and later the record shop). My mate and I bought teams that complimented each other which makes for a strange set looking back. Keep up the good work - loving it and looking forward to the next episode
