MAGAZINE ARCHIVE : SHOOT – 24th DECEMBER 1994

A double issue from Christmas 1994 saw Shoot look back on the year just past.

The cover image is of a Christmas Tree and inset pics of stars of the year such as Alan Shearer, Stan Collymore, Jurgen Klinsmann, Andy Cole, Eric Cantona and Robbie Fowler.

Interesting to note that by summer 1996, three of the cover stars (Cole, Collymore, Shearer) were Britsh record signings.

Founded in 1969, Shoot celebrated it’s 25th birthday in 1994. To commemorate this, they were going to do a Dream Team of all the Premier League clubs. That week’s chosen clubs were Leeds United and Wimbledon.

Shoot does a month by month review of the year, with accompanying posters of that month’s star player.

The photo editor of the results section had an interesting sense of humour as a report on Vinny Jones making his internationl debut for Wales is acoompanied by a picture of him booting Hristo Stoichkov up in the air.

In world news, Roger Milla announced his retirement and Eintracht Frankfurt transfer listed three players – Maurizio Gaudino, Tony Yeboah and Augustine Okocha. All three ended up playing in the Premier League (though Okocha, not for 7 more years)
