Now that’s what your reaction to Issue 6 will be when the postie drops it through your door and you plonk yourself down with a brew and a bourbon to devour the 72 pages of superb Football content! But what’s covered in those 72 pages? Well let me tell you we’ve got real treat for you.
First off, we’ve a cracking interview with music legend Stephen Street. We talk all things The Smiths, Blur, Morrissey and his beloved QPR.
What about our cover star, the late great Pelé. Well we couldn’t not honour the great man in this issue. We’ve got his life story, from his early days playing Futsal, winning World Cups, breaking all the records to his adverts for man problems…
We stay in South America with a look at the history of Uruguayan giants Penarol before moving up to North America where we take a look at USA 94 and how a contingent of Aston Villa players helped Ireland to the round of 16.
Closer to home, we take a look at how certain managers in football just seem to fit perfectly at a particular club. Yes we are talking the likes of Tony Pulis, Nathan Jones…We look at some old programmes from non league teams on Merseyside, taking in they’re weird and wonderful adverts.
Turnstiles regular Peter Miles takes us on journey through lost football grounds, whilst Phil Duffy takes us back to 1974 and the story of the English Schools Trophy.
We look at a serial non league club hopper and how his lies online hoodwinked clubs in to believing he was the new Pelé. How about the old age fashion of fans trying to avoid the football scores so they could watch the highlights on a Saturday night?
What about the now defunct Anglo Italian Cup? Well we’ve got that…and an obituary to the late Gianluca Vialli.
We’ve got an interview with legendary Chesterfield FC photographer Alan Roe, plus Stoke legend Erik Skeels.
And if that isn't enough, we've got all your favourite regular features including Groundhopping, Football Tourist Guides, 11 of the best with Brian Horton, Book Reviews, Flashback and Footballers Ageing Badly. Plus much more!
Oh and you'll get 2 pull out posters for your bedroom wall and some ace old school stickers!
