I was the same - I used to spend the summer holidays down in West Cork and we'd no tv there (internet wasn't a thing). Every morning I used to run into the newsagent and check the back pages of all the papers to get my transfer rumour fix!
I used to LOVE reading The Sun, especially the one on Sunday (the name slips my mind) as a kid
I used to think we were signing everyone.
Some of the reporting is just cringey
Never bought the Sun though - my old man had it drummed into us that they were cnuts and not to be given our money at an early age.
