The Football Attic & Backpass Magazine

It's a very proud day for us here in the Attic as the latest issue of Backpass (no. 28) features an article written by Chris and myself, covering what we think were the best and worst Subbuteo accessories, ranging from the "ahead of its time" trainer's bench to the useless pieces of plastic that masqueraded as floodlights.

Backpass is a fantastic magazine dedicated to football in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, but also touching on the 1950s and 1990s and frankly, if you're into retro football and you haven't bought a copy before, then I can only assume you are insane ;-)

This month also contains an excellent feature on Plymouth kits from John Devlin at True Colours as well as a look into the memorabilia past of none other than my beloved Coventry City by the retro godfathers, Got, Not Got.

You can obtain your copy from most WH Smiths and my local Sainsburys...ok that last one is only really useful if you live near me.
You can also get them direct from Backpass

It's out today, so seek out a copy and bathe yourself in its retro-warmth :)
