The one for those nursing a football hangover

One of my favourite childhood memories is the Saturday morning walk to the stationery. I’d then hand all my pocket money in exchange for football magazines. No sweets for me, the coins in my piggy all went towards Match magazine and Guerin Sportivo (the latter with the excuse that it helped my Italian).

Once a month there was the added bonus of World Soccer magazine which, in those pre-internet days, taught me all I needed to know about football in Brazil, Australia and everywhere else in the world. Remember there was no amazon.com back then: to get a book you often had to buy it off a catalogue and postage rates were obscene.
