50 YEARS OF SHOOT!ADRIAN BESLEY Book Number: 93682 Product format: Hardback
Gordon Banks arching gracefully through the air horizontally to punch away a ball from the goal mouth. On the ball with Billy Bremner in a facsimile signed article. Shoot's star writers Bobby Moore from West Ham and Alan Ball from Everton reveal their details including who they would most want to meet in the world (Frank Sinatra, Cassius Clay and Brigette Bardot). George Best, Brian Clough and Derby County, Ray Clemence talking soccer, here is all the lowdown on the games and the stars and the champions and the losers and the fans and Gazza and Greavsie. Page after page of colour and facsimile black and white reprints from the pages of the top teenage footie magazine bring back fond memories of when sideburns and haircuts were long, shorts were short, and England's World Cup victory was a recent event. It is a time when a footballer's favourite meal was steak and chips, he drove a Ford Capri and his biggest dislike was ignorant people. Muddy pitches, garish kits, bubble perms, since its launch in 1969, Shoot's magazine had the best articles and funniest features. A nostalgia fest to bring back loads of memories from the Golden Age of Football. 176 big colourful pages packed with photos, 21.6 x 28cm.
