Shoot magazine (or was it 90 minutes??) gave one of those away for free one week but it was renamed Striker.  Then when I saw them in the shops I was really confused by the name of it. 

Oh my god that has just reminded me of the best kids footy mag that came out in the late 1970's - "Top Soccer". Only lasted about a year before Shoot! overpowered it but it was absolutely brilliant at the time...

Watney's Party 7. Did you ever manage to open one of them without most of it spraying everywhere?

Absolutely, I'm sure Watney's Pary 6 and a bit, was a shout back in the day.

Grandstand. I was thinking earlier about Jim Rosenthal’s voice on end of season videos and then started to miss old sports tv and just how good grandstand used to be as a kid growing up.

Back in the 50s and 60s the Co-op van used to come around the council estates in  Moreton and Wallasey

My Nan used to basically shop at one in L8 back in the 60s and 70s. I always got some sweets when she did so I loved them.

Anyone remember Jolly Rancher sweets? They were all the rage when I was at school.

For those that don't value their teeth.

I seem to recall they were watermelon flavour or something.

Watermelon, Apple, Cherry, Grape, Strawberry & Blue Raspberry I think. 
There was a store here that sold the Jolly Rancher soda. Lovely stuff but you could literally feel your teeth screaming as they melted away after you'd had a bottle.

The next time I hear anybody whining about the lasting damage caused to today's kids by playing violent video games, I will be directing them to this post.

Imagine a modern version. 'Today's highlights include the tiddlywinks world championship follow by the Scaletrix masters from number 47 High Street,Slough.'

These were good, astonishingly violent though.

I have a few of those compilation books, you sometimes see them in the clearance book stores. Always a cracking read, and they seem to have gone under the snowflake radar as the casual racism is always still present.

 

Funnily enough, I refound this book in my house today and took it with me to read on the commute:
