I used to buy Shoot magazine quite often when I was young, but after seeing my nephew Craig reading it, I have realised it is just not the same. It now is a lot more expensive and it is not worth the money. My nephew Craig spends £1.10 of his £2 pocket money a week to buy this magazine. Shoot has a lot of sections, and although the interviews are good, a lot of the infomation is on lower division clubs rather than Premiership teams. Now, like me, Craig supports Chelsea, as does his older brother Kevin. Kevin buys a lot of football magazines, though as he is older he has a wider taste than just plain little boys mags. I find that this magazine is definatly alright to buy if you yourself are young, or have young children, but if you want more about football, better articles and writers etc then I would recomend lots more such as 4-4-2 or MOTD over this mag. As I mentioned, Kevin buys these mags, and now that Craig is getting older he reads his brother's rather than his own. He still buys shoot however but I think this may be out of habit. To put it simply: If you used to buy Shoot when you were young, forget it, it is not as good as it was. If you're kids want a football magazine, but you do not want to buy them a more adult one, then I would much recomend Match, which is another that my nephew gets, even though they are much the same. Thanks for reading, Steph :) (with help from Craig & Kevin (: )
When I buy a football magazine, i expect for there to be some content on the latest football news, and maybe some interviews with players etc. With Shoot, the problem seems to be that over 50% of the magazine is either adverts or is taken by pull out posters. I am not against having posters in magazines- i have my walls covered in them, but I do think they go way over the top. They need to have more articles which are interesting to make me buy Shoot again. Otherwise i have to say that Match is actually better than Shoot. They have found the right mix between pictures and articles, and overall it is a more rounded magazine.
Its been around for as long as i can remember and it seems o get worse by the week! If its not taking the Michael out of professionals then its stupid cartoons that they think will make people laugh but just make them laugh at the actual people who make the terrible magazine....if you can call it a magazine. Some people only buy it for the posters and I don't blame them if it takes some of the content out of it. I think its about time that a new footy mag came out with new ideas and preferably a new editor too!
Shoot magazine is a poor magazine which is only for kids and has progressively got worse and more boring as time as gone on. The features and interviews are second rate compared to 442 and Match and I honestly can't find anything good apart from the fact that the match reports in the middle are very in depth and make a good read. The posters are also quite good and are very clear and precise. I don't like the magazine on the whole though.
The shoot magazine was and still is the most popular football magazine out of them all. Shoot comes out once a week and it features: top stories, previews of forth coming games, quiz, posters, crosswords, free gifts from time to time, comic strips,results,tables, interviews with the top players, pages of advertising for sports wear and lots more. Very suitable for the keen teenagers and is still at a reasonable price of £1.70 It will keep your teenagers busy or if nothing else out of mischief.
Being a young football fan with not much cash to spend to find out about what's going on Shoot is ideal.It is cheap and cheerful.It is has good stats and interesting game reviews with individual player ratings.They occasionally have free gifts mainly sticker albums or similar items. They have a good variety of teams covered and some good posters.But I have found in recent weeks the posters have not been very clear,also they tend to focus on the big wigs of the game like becks and his other man utd buddies.So the likelyhood of them printing a picture of your favourite star is unlikely. They have good reader participitation with a question and answer session,photo's of readers and a chance to send in your drawings of soccer stars.The interviews are quite good aswell. There are some puzzles and competitions to do,but not enough,to test your footie knowledge.Personally I prefer their competitor "Match" which is 10p dearer but has glossy high quality posters,indepth interviews with all sorts of players and some rectro ones.They also have good game coverage and their euro 2000 coverage was fab. So Match is the one for me,but if you don't mind low quality prints and not terribly indepth interviews buy shoot.
That might be the question.I think if your Kids are wishing to buy a magasine then I would advice them to buy Match the rival magasine to Shoot because it is one of the best magasines for football. Match is packed with useful and helpful infoamtion and is suitable for all age groups but mainly for Kids. Match is one of the top magazines and I would buy my kids it week in week out, I think Shoot has too many pictures and too much unuseful infomation not worth reading. If your going to buy a magazine then buy Match.
Shoot is a magazine jam packed with posters and pictures of the nations favourite footy stars and in my opinion it is great for young fans aged between 6-12. However a more suitable read for a more mature fan would either be FourFourTwo or Match of the Day. Shoot contains little in the way of detailed articles which one might expect to find in a broadsheet newspaper by a quality journalist, instead it has basic interviews and cool competitions, which is why it is great for kids but not myself and I am 16 years old. Kids would be able to afford the ever changing price which at the moment is about £1.50 which is good and the magizine isn't too long so they won't get tired of it. My star rating is what I as a 16 year old would give it, not what a kid would give it.
The weekly football magazine for kids everywhere, oh okay, big kids like me too! I`ve been buying Shoot now on and off for, well, I don`t know how long (Seems it`s been runing forever - phone IPC up and ask them and they`ll say it was there when they arrived!). Shoot contains all the titbits you`d expect, weekly news updates, listings and ratings of the previous weeks matches, statisic for this, that and the other, chats with the famous and the not-so-famous (they do tend to stick with the premiership players though, and the well known players from Division 1). The articles are well written, with unbiased opinion being shown at all times. They also run competitions each week for various prizes (David Backhams Boots anyone?) and you can send in pictures of your favourite players too (No I haven`t - before you ask)or choose a picture to put on your wall from the half dozen they feature each week. I find Shoot to be a better read than, say, Match, I think it`s down to the fact it is a more reader friendly magazine and has a better layout.
Shoot is published weekly and is worth buying everytime. This magazine is design for a younger age group than a Magazine like Total Football. Shoot has many good articles and is good for children as they try and put jokes in it where appropiate. I used to buy this magazine when I was younger and would recomend it to anyone who likes football. The mag is price at under a pound and is usually worth it. It has brilliant posters and in the middle a 4 or 5 page pull out of statistics from the weekends play.
Shoot is a weekly football magazine which includes all the lastest football news, jokes, posters, interviews and of course adverts. It is weekly so unlike the monthly magazines it has less information than the monthly ones. But if your the type that needs the information as soon as it's there then this the is weekly football magazine for you. It provides all the information that you will need to go through the week, however on some occasions you may come up with too many adverts and too little information. That is why i would say that unless you need football every week (which i do) it's worth getting the monthly magazine, which end up as being half the price with the same amount of interviews, news and the rest
