I be an old timer of the Kick Off past, does any of you guys remember the UK Kick Off championship finals held at the Wembley Conference Centre in the 1980's? Ned (from Mutant Software of Bedfont.) Good to see someone is still playing it, :lol: ......... :D

Hey :-)

Sort of keeping dipping in out of top down football.

Played Kick Off, Kick Off 2 and Goal! mostly on the Amiga.

Played Sensi quite alot because most others did. We had local torno's and a small cup made up :-) Great times.

Playing ThrowIn still

--

Hoping for Kick Off or Sensi top appear on the Nitendo DS :-)

I'm from the UK and mainly ride mountain bikes most of the time. And waist time at work on the forums ;-)

Wasn't in the 80's as there was no KO but I played in one in London once in the 90's. Haydn probably remembers more about it than I do though, he' s like that :D

Hi guys,

Never played a tournament or anything like that but have played Kick off in the past and have recently started playing it again with Maragenie who directed me to the forum......great to be here and the memories came flooding back when I saw it again being loaded for the first time a couple of nights ago.

The game is still awesome and it didnt take us too long to get the basics back, a few more good sessions of Kick off and we shall become masters once more. :lol:
