It launched at £1 an issue but was reduced to 65 p quite quickly.
359 issues later when 90 minutes ceased Paul Hawksbee , the by then Editor in Chief, gave some background to the launch 7 years earlier. "90 Minutes started life in march 1990 at 23 Charlton Road,Blackheath, London SE3.Dan Goldstein and I raised five grand through a variety of dubious sources and a further five grand from a friendly Nat West bank.For the first six months it gave us a living and a hefty overdraft so went looking for help from Dennis Publishing who turned us around, and later IPC whose cash and clout pushed us into the Premier League."
Paul Hawksbee replaced Dan Goldstein as Editor, who became founding editor.90 Minutes remained independent for 121 issues until September 19th 1992.
IPC took over the magazine from issue 122 but retained the original editorial team.
Dan Goldstein went on to write the Rough Guide to Football in 2000.
Paul Hawksbee is now a Talk Sport presenter.
