We think they mean the Walkman…

Not for the first time, the excellent http://scotsfootycards.tumblr.com/ has managed to do my job for me – you might think football magazines invented “laddism” at around the point where Total Football called their own magazine “like your wicked mates with the cool sense of humour packing around your flat with a 6 pack of cold lager” next to a picture of Zoe Ball or something, but the relatively innocuous Shoot! magazine as far back as the early 80s was carrying a little bit of laddish advertising…


Good to imagine a kid pondering whether Torquays win at Aldershot meant he had to change Tabs on his Shoot league ladder, and then casually asking his Dad to explain the saucy pun. Meanwhile, a young Frank McAvennie called up Ferguson to get her number…just amazing…
