App Description

Read the most popular football magazine from the 1970s again, published exactly as it was then, but on an electronic platform. With articles written by the star players of the time, stunning colour team and player photos, the famous ‘Focus On’ features, ‘You Are the Ref’ and much more, it will reawaken memories that may have been long forgotten. If you love football, or you know anyone who loves football this iconic magazine is an ideal way to read about previous eras to see how the issues of the day were covered then. Shoot was first published at a time when coverage of football was fairly dry and understated and it was the first magazine specifically aimed at a younger audience. Shoot in the ’70s provides a fascinating narrative of how football was in this iconic era. It also reflects new and innovative printing techniques of the time that enabled use of full colour photos in every issue. Whatever your allegiances, club or international, this is an ideal chance to relive a valuable piece of football history. .
