Its only a matter of days away and although the build-up seems quite low key, I think we are all really just keeping a lid on emotions ahead of the trip to Wearside this Sunday.
As ever in the true faith bunker your favourite band of pasty-faced malcontents are hard at work preparing a new issue of our match-day e-Newsletter, The Special. This is our offering of original fanzine style writing for fans in the new world of digital technology. There is no other fanzine anywhere in the country that is doing as much as we are with these new mediums and we are doing it all absolutely FREE. Welcome to the Jet Age.
Instead of seeking out one of our sellers on match-day or dealing with feckless newsagents, we put the original fanzine writing into your in-box every match-day before you have even opened up your peepers and we do all of that absolutely and completely FREE of charge. There are absolutely no catches, no scams and everything is absolutely as it seems.
The Special looks great on any device you care to name but we particularly recommend it on smart-phones, i-pads and tablets. The image we have is for supporters to be reading The Special on their phones on the way to games on their phones or waiting for the game to come on the telly or whatever.
This week obviously the The Special will have an unmistakable derby feel to it and there will be the usual assessments of the opposition, nostalgia pieces, assorted commentary and fanzine Q & A with their lot.
To see what we produced for last week’s game with Norwich, just click here.

Once you have signed up for The Special, that’s it for life. We also guarantee to give readers of The Special first dibs on the larger issues of our fanzine when we publish it – that is absolutely FREE as well.
What you waiting for?
That is all.
