Coming from the Charles Buchan Football Monthly stable, Goal reigned supreme as the leading weekly football magazine during the late 1960's and early 1970's, centring heavily on the First & Second Divisions. It was the benchmark for the other weekly football publications which followed later. The first issue appeared for the week ending 10th August 1968, and ran for just short of six years, with the final magazine being dated 1st June 1974, after which the title was incorporated into Shoot.
Full colour front and back covers were present throughout, as was a colour centre pull out, with the internal colour content increasing as the publication matured (details of which are listed against each publication date - front cover/centre pages/back cover/other, other, other etc). We currently have plenty of good quality magazines available.
WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ISSUE 1 (£5), ALL GOAL MAGAZINES ARE PRICED AT £2 EACH.
