Have been through ds1's cards and although he gave most of his swaps away (clearly not understanding the meaning of the word hmm), he's got the following to swap:

Bolton Wanderers
Joey O'Brien
Matthew Taylor (x2)

Newcastle United
Belozoglu Emre

I know it's not many but thought I'd check if anyone can swap for pretty much any Manchester United cards - he's got Giggs and the goalie but I think that's about it. He's United obsessed (and has brought shame on the family - we're all City, which is why he's chosen United hmm).

Or list any other swaps and I'll go through his cards.

Would love him even just to get some post - he's just starting to get a vague interest in reading and a while ago I know lots of people were looking for penpals - I think he's at that stage (he's 6.5).

Anyway, when he gets more cards I'll post them.

oooh....I may be able to help here as my DS1 is currently collecting as has rather a few swapsiesgrin!!!

My DH is also a City fan......he is heartbroken tho this weekend as DS1 has declared himself to be a chelsea boyshock!!!! (he is following his BF at school....several of them are converting to chelsea it seemshmm).

it has gotten so bad that DS1's City football kit promted tears the other day. DS was doing footy training and had forgotten his kit....I rushed home and got the first thing to hand, his City kit (luckily they aren;t in a 'uniform' kit).......he was horrified when I got back, and promtly burst into angry tears once in the car to come home after as he was "sooooooo laughed at!" (his words....oh for the joy of 7/8yo boys who have their own type of 'fashion' dictateshmm)

I will hunt down DS's swap's tho and get back to you

Dottydot Sun 27-Apr-08 10:27:22

Arsenal : Francesc Fabregas.
Fulham: Aaron Hughes
Blackburn : Jason Roberts and Matt Derbyshire.
Everton : Nuno Valente and Thomas Gravesen
Bolton : Danny Guthrie
Derby : Andy Griffin, Dean Leacock,Michael Johnson and Matt Oakley.
Aston Villa : Luke Moore

Ds has about 100 cards that he can swap (far too many to list individually on here but if anyone has any of the cards above please post a message and let me know what your dc would like instead and I will see if we have got them. Only Man U swap he has at present is Rio Ferdinand.

blinkingthreetimes Sun 27-Apr-08 15:33:01

My ds has hundreds of swaps if anyones interested just going to do a list now

Grav1 Sun 27-Apr-08 15:35:20

Ds has just informed me that his cards are all original cards and not match attacks extras.

Dottydot Sun 27-Apr-08 15:38:18

Grav1 - just checked through and I don't think we've got any you need sad. Your ds is doing incredibly well though - can't imagine how many he's got!! grin

So far, our swaps from today's haul are:

Bolton Wanderers
Matthew Taylor
Joey O'Brien
Andrew O'Brien

Danny Murphy

Steven Gerrard

Manchester City
Nery Castillo

Manchester United
Gerard Pique
Mikael Silvestre

West Ham
Julien Faubert

Birmingham City
Daniel de Ridder

If anyone wants any of these and could offer any swaps that would be great! smile

Dottydot Sun 27-Apr-08 15:38:51

Grav1 - I didn't know there was a difference blush Ds1's are Match Attack Extras I think.

Dottydot Sun 27-Apr-08 15:40:14

(what did we spend our time on before we had children hmm..?)

Grav1 Sun 27-Apr-08 15:40:39

Hi Dottydot. I think your ds is collecting match attack extras as I do not recognise the names you have listed as being ordinary match attacks.

Dottydot Sun 27-Apr-08 15:42:37

Oh blush It's all very complicated in the world of football trading cards. I'm not even getting into Euro 2008 cards...

Grav1 Sun 27-Apr-08 15:42:45

Sorry messages crossed. Match attacks came out first and then extras were added. We haven't started these yet(want to complete original set first).
