In my continuing collaborative series with @1888Letter, I will ask the experiences of Mr. Graham Denton @gtdenton, Author of The Odd Man Out: The Fascinating Story of Ron Saunders' Reign at Aston Villa (2017), Me and My Big Mouth: When Cloughie Sounded Off in TVTimes (2019)


Name: Graham Denton
Twitter: @gtdenton
Personal Description:  Author of The Odd Man Out: The Fascinating Story of Ron Saunders' Reign at Aston Villa (2017), Me and My Big Mouth: When Cloughie Sounded Off in TVTimes (2019)


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: At what age did you become a Football fan and how long after did you start reading Football Magazines?

Response:  I was 7 when I saw my first game (live on TV). The hook was firmly in from then on. I think it was the following season that I began reading about the game in magazines.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: What was the first Soccer (Football) magazine that you read as a new young fan of the game?

Response:  SHOOT! In the days when it still had an exclamation mark in its title.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Were there other local magazines that you also read?

Response:  I was aware of GOAL, because a cousin (slightly older than me) had some posters from that magazine on his bedroom wall, but no others. Football League Review (The Official Journal of the Football League) was a very thin magazine inserted between the pages of match day programmes but, although I did start going to games (with my father, from around the age of 8) and having a programme bought for me, I don’t recall reading the Review.




Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Describe the general format of these particular magazines? What was your favorite section(s) of these said magazines?

Response:  SHOOT! was a mix of short and long features about certain teams/individual players, interviews, cartoons, snippets of news, match facts, stats, previews, etc. ‘Focus on’ was a staple. Plus there were both colour and black-and-white photos throughout. Early on I enjoyed the action photos the most, and often snipped them out for a scrapbook. I would only ever skim-read, but as I got older I started focussing more thoroughly on the written pieces.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Was the coverage of Football mainly local  British or was International Football news covered as well in a meaningful way?

Response:  In SHOOT! they did have the occasional round-up of news from clubs abroad – a devoted page, perhaps - but to be honest, I wasn’t that interested in it. Foreign football really was a mystery back then (early / mid-70s). As a young fan you had very limited knowledge about the make-up of club sides from other countries or international sides outside of the British Isles. When you watched, say, the World Cup, you really went into it with your eyes shut. Personally, that ignorance only made the game more blissful for me.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: In general on a typical newsstand, how many choices were available for reading Football?

Response:  In my experience, it was limited to SHOOT! and GOAL. The latter had been launched on the 16th August 1968 (my later father’s 32nd birthday, coincidentally), and SHOOT! followed a year later. SHOOT! was far more children-friendly in its approach, whereas GOAL was written by actual journalists and took a more in-depth and ‘adult’ look at the game. Charles Buchan's Football Monthly Digest existed but I wasn’t aware of it. In 1974 that closed and became known simply as "Football" magazine. In the summer of ‘74 Goal also was officially incorporated into SHOOT!  So the reading options became even less. Towards the end of the decade there was Football Handbook (a monthly rather than weekly publication), which I used to get a copy of, but SHOOT! was always my go-to magazine. I have to add, though, that I also read comics like Tiger and Scorcher, and then Roy of the Rovers, both of which covered not just football but a variety of sports.



Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Do you remember foreign Football publications at your newsstands as well? If so did you read any?

Response:  If there were any, I never saw them.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: I will ask this from everyone, one of my best memories as a young football fan was the anticipation of the day when new issues were available on newsstands. It was a weekly ritual that would stay with me for decades. In your own words, can you explain your memories of these days?

Response: I used to get SHOOT! delivered from the local newsagents. I am reliably informed by Greg Lansdowne @Panini_book that when it first launched SHOOT! came out on Monday. By December 1969 it was then switched to Friday. At some point it then moved to a Thursday delivery, which is my memory of it. As a young child, when you had very few possessions or spending power, knowing that once a week you were guaranteed this glossy-covered paper gift was wonderfully thrilling and comforting, too. The moment of expectation, waiting for the evening paper (in my case, a large Hull Daily Mail) to be poked through the letterbox bulked out by your magazine, or to land on the porch mat with a hefty thud was a sensation I’ll never forget.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Did you enjoy your magazines for the scores/league tables, etc or did you prefer the writing? Or was there an evolution as when you aged you started to appreciate the deep written analysis more?

Response:  As I said before, there was a gradual evolution. But, even then, I would usually check out the images first. That said, I do recall when Andy Gray (of the team I supported, Aston Villa) became a regular columnist in SHOOT! I was always extremely keen to read what he had to say, so would be drawn straightaway to that. 

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: How has the quality of your favorite magazines changed (for better or worse over the years)?

Response:  Not a question I can answer. I stopped buying football magazines in my late teens. A long time ago now!

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Looking back what was the best era for your favorite magazines?

Response:  I’m bound to say the 1970s/early 80s – more specifically, 1972-82, when my passion for the game was at its height.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: The daily newspapers play a big part in the coverage of the game. Can you compare these daily papers to the weekly/monthly magazines?

Response:  My dad used to get the Daily Express every morning. As far as its football coverage was concerned, it was chiefly transfer news/gossip and match reports from the day/night before. That obviously contrasted fairly sharply with the weekly magazines.

 Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Has your taste in magazines changed over the years or do you still read your favorite magazines?

Response:  See my previous answers.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Looking back, do you feel these magazines kept you sufficiently informed about the events of the game as a whole?

Response:  Yes, I do. I’m sure there were times when I did feel frustrations about being kept in the dark, but generally I was content. My enjoyment of the game wouldn’t have been increased by ‘knowing’ more about it through the written word. I was always more of a watcher and listener, anyway.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Did your interest in reading magazines wane with the advent of Internet and 24 Hour Sports Television channels or are you as interested as ever in reading?

Response:  I stopped reading magazines long before then. For many years after my magazine-buying days ended, I would still read about the game in a Saturday and sometimes Sunday paper, but even that gradually decreased and then stopped altogether. I will now occasionally go to an online piece that’s somehow come to my attention, but only if it’s about the game from the distant past.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Are there publications that have since been defunct that you miss?

Response:  No. I do slightly regret, however, no longer having the 100s of copies of SHOOT! that I once owned and kept in a wooden box beneath my bed. I either gave them away to a younger cousin, or they were donated to a local children’s home. I’d probably devour them with even more zeal these days if I still had them!

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Getting back to my earlier question about anticipating the release of magazines. Given that now many receive their magazines on PDF, do you feel that a level of excitement has been lost as a result?

Response:  Having an actual magazine in paper form was a very sensual experience. It wasn’t just a feast for the eyes, but something tangible you could feel between your fingers. The newness of the pages had a certain smell. Even a sound as your turned over those pages. That experience can never be replicated by scrolling up and down on a screen.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Once again thank you for taking the time in participating in this project.

Nostalgia of Soccer (Football) Magazines Project-Part 14


In my continuing collaborative series with @1888Letter, I will ask the experiences of Mr. David Stuart of Scotland. The facebook and twitter page of Mr. Stuart (Scotland Epistles Football Magazine) is a tribute to Scottish Football.


Name: Scotland Epistles Football Magazine
Twitter: @davstu11
Personal Description:  former fanzine writer and co-founder of the Scotland Epistles football magazine. Co-author of two books on the Scotland national side along with Robert Marshall.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: At what age did you become a Football fan and how long after did you start reading Football Magazines?

Response:  I've always been a football since an early age and although my main interest in the early 70's from about the age of six / seven was football cards I would also read or perhaps more in the early years look at football magazines


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: What was the first Soccer (Football) magazine that you read as a new young fan of the game?

Response:  The first one I really remember is Shoot! in particular the early one with George Best on the front. I wouldn't always buy it as it all depended what my local shop would sell and if I had any pocket money. Around the same time though I would also read the Tiger comic which was more Sports orientated.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Were there other local magazines that you also read?

Response:  Locally in Scotland there was the Football Scot magazine in the early 70's and I would try to get a hold of that too as it would often have Partick Thistle players in posters, a much treasured Item.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Describe the general format of these particular magazines? What was your favorite section(s) of these said magazines?

Response:  I imagine the Shoot! has been discussed by other interviewees. One big difference is that Football Scot started out newspaper size making it a bit unwieldy and hard to store in many ways ‘Football Scot’ had a similar format with articles on players, teams etc. interspersed with posters. However, it was quite unique in also have weekly articles on the then Scottish Second Division, Junior (Non-League football), Schools football with a school team photo published too weekly too. It and the magazines that it more or less merged into Scottish Football Monthly and then Scottish Football Weekly also had articles on Women's football too.




Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Was the coverage of Football mainly local  British or was International Football news covered as well in a meaningful way?

Response:  As stated above it's coverage was on Scottish football but would also have articles on players playing in England but most of the pin ups were from Scottish clubs.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: In general on a typical newsstand, how many choices were available for reading Football?

Response:  I came from Milton in Glasgow and rarely in my younger days would visit the city centre so really you were at the mercy of the lcoal newsagents and choice was not readily available. To be honest though if it was football card season I would have bought them before magazines.




Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Do you remember foreign Football publications at your newsstands as well? If so did you read any?

Response:  Foreign magazines were not available at this time in Sunny Milton.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: I will ask this from everyone, one of my best memories as a young football fan was the anticipation of the day when new issues were available on newsstands. It was a weekly ritual that would stay with me for decades. In your own words, can you explain your memories of these days?

Response: I did not have a lot of money available to myself so I could go weeks without buying a magazine but then the likes of the League Ladders might be issued and catch the eye so would then be bought. Sometimes it was the front cover that caught the eye with a Thistle player on the front or a poster inside. One of my early memories is of the Shoot! printing a Thistle team photo in the late 60's or early 70's in the middle pages, unfortunately it was shared with an Ipswich team too.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Did you enjoy your magazines for the scores/league tables, etc or did you prefer the writing? Or was there an evolution as when you aged you started to appreciate the deep written analysis more?

Response:  As a youngster it would be the photos but as I grew older some of the articles. Despite being the co-producer of a Scotland magazine and the co-author of two Scotland books I still have the terrible habit of skimming through articles at times. PS the answer to the last question should have read "I didn't have a lot of money".

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: How has the quality of your favorite magazines changed (for better or worse over the years)?

Response:  My favourite magazine and those that followed are of course long defunct from about the mid 70's/ There have of course been other attempts at Scottish Football magazines including Scottish Football Today, The Punter, Fitba', Pride that all went by the wayside.



Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Looking back what was the best era for your favorite magazines?

Response:  Naturally it would be the 70's for me. Football magazines, cards, collectables were all at their height back then with the exception of perhaps Panini stickers of course.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: The daily newspapers play a big part in the coverage of the game. Can you compare these daily papers to the weekly/monthly magazines?

Response:  I don't really read newspaper coverage mainly as I live in Glasgow so the majority of coverage is all about the Old Firm although I do think their overall coverage of other teams is perhaps better than ever before it is all about Rangers and Celtic!!

 Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Has your taste in magazines changed over the years or do you still read your favorite magazines?

Response:  To be honest i don't really read them that often. The Shoot is gone but the monopoly of coverage for the English Premier League galls me to my core along with that of International teams. The kids magazines are extremely dumbed down too as are the cards. Occasionally I will buy Backpass magazine and did enjoy the fanzine type such as Stand and Football Pink, otherwise I glance at very few.



Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Looking back, do you feel these magazines kept you sufficiently informed about the events of the game as a whole?

Response:  The input in the magazines was good and did keep you informed and from time to time I also enjoyed World Soccer in the late 70's and liked the depth of it's coverage.
Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Did your interest in reading magazines wane with the advent of Internet and 24 Hour Sports Television channels or are you as interested as ever in reading?

Response:  My interest in football waned at certain points as Music took over in my life. Now if you want me to go on about Sounds, NME, the Melody Maker, Kerrang!, Smash Hits, Q, Mojo I could do also.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Are there publications that have since been defunct that you miss?

Response:  As I said I do miss a Scottish Football Weekly / Monthly based one but don't think we'll see a printed one return with the advent of blogs, twitter, Podcasts although Nutmeg Periodical is avaialble now ever few months.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Getting back to my earlier question about anticipating the release of magazines. Given that now many receive their magazines on PDF, do you feel that a level of excitement has been lost as a result?

Response:  As I say buying a magazine is an irregular thing for me these days so there no anticipation and perhaps it's more a nostalgic magazine that will catch my eye rather than one covering today's football and footballers.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Once again thank you for taking the time in participating in this project.

Nostalgia of Soccer (Football) Magazines Project-Part 13

I have been a collector of football stuff since I was 8 years old.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: At what age did you become a Football fan and how long after did you start reading Football Magazines?

Response:  I think since my birth, but I started to get more interested in 2005, at 7 years old, watching games from my heart team Grêmio, with my father, and the taste has been increasing, in the In 2006 I began to enjoy reading, in the World Cup I won an album of the World Cup, and after that I started to buy football magazine in the newsstand frequently like for example the magazine magazine, among other soccer publications in Brazil. at the age of 8 I was already reading about football.


Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Question: What was the first Football magazine you read as a new young fan of the game?

Response:  It was the Placar Magazine of November 2006, the one below.



Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Were there other local magazines that you also read?

Response:  Yes, Several of them, FUT LANCE
ESPN, GLOBO ESPORTE, GOL FC, TRIVELA, INVICTO, CHOCOLATE, GOLEADA, LANCE A +, Corner, Show de Bola, Los 3 Inimigos. also Club Magazines like Grêmio's 1903, Nação Tricolor among others.



Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Describe the general format of these particular magazines? What was your favorite section of these magazines mentioned?

Response:  Each magazine had a different format, some similarities could be noticed, but not so many in my view, I had no preference for section, the format of Chocolate Magazine was very similar to the Match of England. In relation to the sections, on the scoreboard I really liked Planeta Bola, Tabelão, Placarpedia. in the trivela had the section Peneira, where I talked about new talents of Brazilian and world football, in ESPN the section of the chronicles caught my attention, among others.



Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: football coverage mostly local or did international football news also cover significantly?

Response:  There was never only local coverage, always worldwide in all magazines. some focusing more but less but international football has always been the agenda here.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: In general, in a typical newsstand, how many options were available to read Football?

Response:  In my city at the time I believe that between 2 or 3 option, already in major centers from 3 to 6, but nowadays you have 2 or 3 publications, in the newsstands for Brazil is already a lot, due to the scarcity of the product.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Do you also remember foreign soccer publications on your newsstands? If so, did you read any?

Response:  In my city I believe that once came the Footballer magazine from Portugal, but it found a lot in big cities, today it is possible to find many foreign football magazines in tallow. yes already read, always when I think I buy are my preferences. I have Guerin, Four Four Two, Don Balon, Tiki Tiki, Futebolista, El Grafico, World Soccer, France Football, Olé, Historia Futbol y Estadísticas among others.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: I'll ask you all: one of my fondest memories as a young football fan was the anticipation of the day when new editions were available at newsstands. It was a weekly ritual that would stay with me for decades. In your own words, can you explain your memories of those days?

Response:  Every week I went to the newsstand to see what had come new, when I was younger always on the last days of the month I hoped that at any moment my scoreboard magazine would be in the mailbox. but you grow and things change.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Did you like your magazines for the scores / tables, etc., or did you prefer the writting? Or was there an evolution as you grew older and you began to appreciate deeper written analysis?

Response:  I like the part of the images, the infographics, the tables, but the part of the writing is essential, the journalistic writing.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: How has the quality of your favorite magazines changed (for better or worse over the years)?

Response:  I don't have a favorite football magazine, so all magazines are my favorite. As we are in Brazil the magazine that is most read here and Placar, I do a critical analysis about this magazine, because it lost much of its quality for example has wrong information, many cuts in sections, besides reducing the number of pages, and the worst of them doing a magazine with only one theme per month, abandoning that format that the magazine was general years ago, became a common magazine, knowing that it was one of the powers of world football magazines, becomes what and today, the course she has taken is unfortunate.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Looking back, what was the best time for your favorite magazines?

Response:  I see Placar from 2000 to 2016, it was very good, in the various formats it has followed over the years.
El Gráfico from 1990 to 2016 was also a very cool phase.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: newspapers play an important role in the coverage of the game. Can you compare these daily newspapers compared to a magazine like 'PLACAR'?

Response:  In my view, I see as something different from another magazine after all and monthly, already the newspaper and every day, so the information that it will have will be totally fresh unlike the magazine that will only arrive a month after If the fact occurred, here in Brazil we have only one newspaper for 100% Esporte, which is the Diário Lance.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Has your taste for magazines changed over the years or do you still read your favorite magazines?

Response:  No more and more, nowadays I also read sports magazines and newspapers from all over the world through PDF.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Looking back, do you think these magazines have kept you sufficiently informed about the events of the game as a whole?

Response:  Yes, in a time when there was no internet but now the information arrives in seconds.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Has your interest in reading magazines diminished with the advent of Internet channels and 24-hour sports television, or are you more interested in reading than ever?

Response:  Not on the contrary has increased more and more, but nowadays it is difficult to find in newsstands, but the PDF, and the tallow, saves a little this issue.

Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Are there any publications that have gone extinct that you miss?

Response:  Yes, several, among them, Fox sports Uruguay, Don Balon (Spanish), Shoot (England), El escorpion (Colombia), Futebolista (Portugal), El Gráfico, Solo Goles, Tiki Tiki (Argentina), from Brazil: Trivela, FUT LANCE, ESPN, Invicto, Four Four Two (Brazilian Edition).






Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Question: Returning to my previous question about anticipating the launch of magazines. Given that many now receive their PDF magazines, do you feel that a level of enthusiasm has been lost as a result?

Response:  Yes, it is no longer the same as taking it in hand as it was previous years.


Soccernostalgia/@1888Letter Question: Thanks again for participating in the project.

Answer: I appreciate the opportunity to tell a little of the history of my 5000 Football Magazines, my passion is so great that in 2015 I created my own digital magazine, I didn't go further because I couldn't take it to the printout.

Resposta : Cada revista tinha um formato diferente, algumas semelhanças dava para notar, mas não era tantas assim ao meu ver, eu não tinha preferencia por seção, o formato da Revista Chocolate era muito parecido com a Match da Inglaterra. em relação as seções,  na placar gostava muito do Planeta Bola, Tabelão, Placarpedia. na trivela tinha a seção Peneira, onde falava sobre novos talentos do futebol brasileiro e mundial, na Espn a seção das cronicas me chamava bastante atenção, entre outras.


Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Pergunta: A cobertura do futebol foi principalmente local ou as notícias do futebol internacional foram cobertas também de maneira significativa?

Resposta : Nunca foi só local a cobertura, sempre a nível mundial em todas as revistas. umas com enfoque a mais outras menos mas o futebol internacional sempre foi pauta por aqui.


Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Pergunta: Em geral, em uma banca de jornal típica, quantas opções estavam disponíveis para ler Futebol?

Resposta : na minha cidade na época  creio que entre 2 ou 3 opção, já em grandes centro de 3 a 6, mas nos dias de hoje se tiver 2 ou 3 publicações, nas bancas pelo brasil já e muito, devido a escassez do produto.


Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Pergunta: Você também se lembra de publicações estrangeiras de futebol em suas bancas? Se sim, você leu alguma?

Resposta : Na minha cidade creio que uma vez, veio a revista Futebolista de Portugal, mas encontrava muito em grandes centro, hoje e possível encontrar muitas revistas estrangeiras de futebol em sebos. sim já li, sempre quando acho eu compro são as minhas preferências. tenho a Guerin, Four Four Two, Don Balon, Tiki Tiki, Futebolista, El Grafico, World Soccer, France Football, Olé, Historia Futbol y Estadísticas. Entre Outras.


Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Pergunta: Vou perguntar isso a todos: uma das minhas melhores lembranças como jovem fã de futebol foi a antecipação do dia em que novas edições estavam disponíveis nas bancas. Era um ritual semanal que ficaria comigo por décadas. Com suas próprias palavras, você pode explicar suas memórias desses dias?

Resposta : Toda semana eu ia na banca vê o que tinha chegado de novidade, quando era mais novo sempre nos últimos dias do mês esperava que a qualquer momento a minha revista placar estaria na caixa do correio. mas você vai crescendo e as coisas vão mudando.


Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Question: Você gostou de suas revistas para as pontuações / tabelas de classificação, etc, ou preferiu a redação? Ou houve uma evolução como quando você envelheceu, começou a apreciar mais a profunda análise escrita?

Resposta : Eu gosto mas da parte de imagens, infografias, tabelas, mas a parte da redação e essencial,  a redação jornalistica. 




Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Question: Como a qualidade de suas revistas favoritas mudou (para melhor ou para pior ao longo dos anos)?

Resposta : Eu não tenho revista de Futebol favorita, pra min todas as revista são favorita. como estamos no Brasil a revista que e mais lida aqui e a Placar, eu faço uma analise critica sobre essa revista, pois ela perdeu muito sua qualidade por exemplo  contem com informações errada, muitos cortes em seções, alem de diminuir o numero de paginas, e a pior delas fazer uma revista só com um tema por mês, abandonando aquele formato que a  revista era geral ha  anos atras, acabou se tornando uma revista comum, saber que foi uma das potências, das revistas de futebol mundial, se transforma no que e hoje, e lamentável o rumo que ela tomou.

Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Question: Olhando para trás, qual foi a melhor época para suas revistas favoritas?

Resposta : Vejo a Placar de 2000 a 2016, foi muito boa, nos vários formatos que ela seguiu ao longo desses anos.
El Gráfico de 1990 a 2016, também foi uma fase muito bacana.


Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Question: os jornais diários desempenham um papel importante na cobertura do jogo. Você pode comparar esses jornais diários em comparação com uma revista como 'PLACAR'?

Resposta : na minha visão, vejo como uma coisa distinta da outra a revista afinal e mensal, já o jornal e todos os dias, então as informações que ele vai ter vão ser totalmente fresquinha ao contrario da revista que só vai chegar um mês depois de ter ocorrido o fato, aqui no Brasil temos apenas um jornal destinado a 100% Esporte, que e o Diário Lance. 


 Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Pergunta: O seu gosto pelas revistas mudou ao longo dos anos ou você ainda lê as suas revistas favoritas?

Resposta : não cada vez aumenta mais,  nos dias atuais  também leio revista e jornais de esportes do mundo inteiro, através de PDF.

Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Question: Olhando para trás, você acha que essas revistas o mantiveram suficientemente informado sobre os eventos do jogo como um todo?

Resposta : Sim, num tempo que não existia internet mas agora, as informações chega em segundos.

Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Pergunta: O seu interesse em ler revistas diminuiu com o advento dos canais da Internet e da televisão esportiva 24 horas ou você está mais interessado do que nunca na leitura?

Resposta : Não pelo contrario cada vez aumentou mais, mas hoje em dia e  difícil encontrar em bancas, mas o PDF, e os sebos, salva um pouco essa​ questão.

Soccernostalgia / @ 1888Letter Pergunta: Mais uma vez, obrigado por participar do projeto.


Resposta : Eu que agradeço a oportunidade de poder contar um pouco da historia das minhas 5000 Revistas de Futebol, a minha paixão e tao grande que no ano de 2015 criei a minha própria revista digital, não fui mais adiante por que não consegui levar ela para o impresso.
