The help finding a sports book thread
« on: November 24, 2022, 01:53:27 pm »
I wanted to make this thread so it has use for others too.

There is a book I am trying to find around 1997-98. It was a paperback football book with a white cover, that had all the English teams listed. Each page had the official team photo of each team at the start of the season, followed by details of each team. It was kind of like a football encyclopaedia.

Pretty sure Rothmans always had a blue cover.
And all the world is football shaped, It's just for me to kick in space. And I can see, hear, smell, touch, taste.

Maybe 2nd Edition of this which was from 1998-99

I had a look last night and could only come up with the Rothman's.

It had a blue cover, as Barry said.
Liverpool FC - Local, Regional, National, International and Global. Probably got fans on Mars too.

My uncle had a load of the Rothmans football yearbooks going back years. They were all blue IIRC.

Just had a quick search on google and spotted that the old news of the world football annuals had a lot of white on the covers and a white spine and back cover.
