I was very flattered to be asked to contribute to the retro football magazine Backpass recently. I was vaguely aware of the publication but now I’ve been sent a couple of copies I have to say I’m absolutely hooked. I really recommend it.
Its an essential read for anyone interested in football history and who misses the intelligent and informative editorial approach of the likes of Shoot magazine in the 70s and 80s.
The magazine focusses on the 60s, 70s and 80s and is packed with really good articles and photos. Its not a comic – its a serious football publication aimed at football supporting gentlemen (and women) of a certain age, something which I think the football world needs at the moment.
To find out more visit: www.backpassmagazine.co.uk and look out for future issues which should feature more on the iconic kits of the 60s, 70s and 80s. As well as being available online, I believe the magazine is also sold in newsagents and certain WH Smiths.
