- as you wait patiently for the WC draw I thought you would be interested in some old women's football media guides/programmes I've been sorting out. I bet you don't remember the time 'Itope' Powell managed England at the 2002 Algarve Cup!

Haven't done a domestic album since the early '90s but I think I will be tempted back!

Just think...they'll be a box like this for the Premier League next season!

Who says they don't make Christmas songs like they used to?

Two on the first page. Leeds team. Couple of Liverpool inc. Alan Hansen and one more I need to check.

'Mike' Thomas (who became 'Michael' in 'Football 89'), Alan Harper and Mark Ward brings the 'need' tally for 'Football 88' down to six...but that includes 2 x Liverpool and George Best so it won't be easy!

- I think that beats our Subbuteo and Marshall Cavendish finds! If I found that shirt in a charity shop I'd have to look around to make sure someone wasn't playing a trick!

A really enjoyable and insightful article (in another issue full of them). As someone whose life has been immeasurably enhanced by reading, editing and writing for magazines, it is an area that deserves a greater academic treatment.

In a difficult publishing market I would say it is unlikely it will happen now...but perhaps there could be scope for some one-off mags. It would also be lovely to see the US tradition of fairs dedicated to collectables take off here (again, even one would do!).

I still marvel at the fact the US has several magazines devoted to sports collectables...so I thought it only right I got my name in one at some point. Women on sports trading cards/stickers is a developing market - not just ones with as the images here suggest!

That's Christmas done for you! I think the best Charity/Secondhand Shop find I've ever had was the complete set of Marshall Cavendish 'Book of Football' part-work set...all in binders. But I live in hope of finding some 1980s Panini items!

Particularly good fortune to get the Football 80 album - especially in such great condition - as it wasn't given away with Scoop!

I was in nappies at the time but during research for Stuck On You I did find someone who had all the Top Sellers albums...including the music ones!
