Those of you who have been reading true faith for any time will be aware that one of our faithful Black & White tribe, John Milton, formerly of the parish of Heaton has been billeted in Rio in that Brazil for these last number of years. For some reason, John has exchanged the delights of Chilli Road for the beaches of Rio and a sunshine lifestyle in one of the world’s greatest cities. Each to their I own I suppose. I’m not jealous. At all. No, really.
Whilst John has been out in Rio, our man in the favelas has treated us to some wonderful insights and writing about life in Brazil but especially its football culture but one that is uniquely written by a Mag discovering all of this for the first time. John has managed to swerve the samba football cliches and waded through the undergrowth of Brazilian football and produced some outstanding pieces for us. There isn’t another fanzine anywhere which has been able to match this or come anywhere near this level of coverage.
As your gob-shite fanzine is committed to giving you an alternative view, in the latest issue John has completed a trilogy of pieces detailing the life of perhaps the greatest Brazilian footballer that has ever played, namely Pele.
John’s pieces though have looked at every element of Pele’s life, his emergence, his status and achievements as well as his career in the US, his family life and his various links with FIFA etc. Its an absolutely fascinating read.
