Like every other minority/majority interest you care to mention there have been a number of magazines specialising in football. From Charles Buchan’s Football Monthly to Jimmy Hill’s Football Weekly, Goal, Shoot through to the glossy magazines of more recent years. I bought issue No 1 of “Striker” in January 1970 and continued buying most of the 113 issues until it faded away in March 1972. The last time I looked 4 4 2, When Saturday Comes and Match were in the newsagents carrying on the tradition.
