Keeping up with current events is never easy for a monthly magazine given the time lag between them actually happening and the first available magazine thudding onto the shelves – usually somewhere around six weeks unless the timing is especially fortunate and said event happens just before you go to press.

To celebrate, there was an orgy of Euro ’96 content, from a string of superb photographs to thoughts on just what Glenn Hoddle should do as England manager now that he was taking over from Terry Venables. It also covered events from the rest of the tournament for those not of the English persuasion.
