50 Years of Shoot! brings back fond memories of a time when sideburns and haircuts were long, shorts were short and England's World Cup victory was a recent event. They'll recall when a footballer's favourite meal was steak and chips, he drove a Ford Capri and his biggest dislike was ignorant people. Ah, it was a different world back then! For younger readers, this will be a history lesson, proof positive that their father's heroes really did exist - and they were quite good too.
