Driving through Hampshire this morning called at the newsagents for a Sunday paper and there tucked away on the ‘bottom shelf’ was the Daily Echo weekend football ‘Pink’.

It brought back memories of when on a Saturday night you would wait in your Town or City around 6pm for the football paper with scores, tables and probably a report and pictures of the game you had just travelled home from.

In London you had the News, Star and Standard all vying to see who could be first with the results to your local paper point.

Birmingham and the Midlands had the excellent Sports Argus and Manchester their own Pink. Sheffield still has it’s Green Un which in this very modern age still strives to be at it’s outlets by 7pm.

Would be interested to hear from anyone of any other coloured football/sports paper that is still published on a Saturday night or Sunday morning.
