Around Town

Shoot,  1969-80


Throughout the 1970's, Shoot was the leading football weekly magazine. Absorbing the Goal title when that magazine closed in 1974, it had no serious competition until Match began publication towards the end of 1979.


Details of issues right through to the end of 1980 are listed in this section, and the vast majority of magazines are in perfect condition. (Issues from the 1980's and 1990's will be accessed by the links on the left once they are loaded)


Details of the colour pages in each magazine are list as follows:

Front cover/centre spread/back cover/other, other, other, other.


Where two or more players appear in a match action picture, the 'home' player(s) will be listed first if the venue can be identified by stadium shots or if the other player is in away kit or part-change colours (for instance, on the cover of the April 8th 1978 issue, the picture of Alan Devonshire and Willie Johnston was clearly taken at Upton Park, with West Brom in navy rather than white shorts.) Similarly, match action shots will also show the 'home' club first if the venue can be clearly identified.
