MAGAZINE ARCHIVE : MATCH – 27th JULY 1996

It’s the summer of 1996 and Stan Collymore is the cover star of Match, proclaiming that Liverpool will be champions in 1997.

For some reason, they have a “Single Of The Week”, which is “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” by Deep Blue Something. Sound judgement.

Three pages are dedicated to an interview with Collymore, with most of the pictures of him wearing Diadora gear. Hmmmm.

Meanwhile, John Salako is branching out into a new career, guest presenting a show on Sky One called “Boiled Egg And Soldiers”, where Spice Girls are the guests.

Going by the photos, they appear to big fans of him. Just think, Posh and Salaks could have been our Royal Family.

In rumours that look silly now : Arsenal want to sign Atillo Lombardo and Tim Sherwood, and Barcelona want to sign David Ginola.

Meanwhile, Brighton could be homeless in 1997 after Hove Council rejected plans for a new stadium at Toads Hall Valley.

As it turned out, Brighton had to play in Gillingham from 1997 to 1999, and then to an athletics stadium in the city before finally moving to The Amex in 2011.
