It is a staggering 150-pages of proper fanzine with fantastic writing and brilliant design with loads more.
As you would expect, true faith covers every twist and turn in the Newcastle United story from people who follow the club home and away. Anda few who can’t bear to give Ashley another penny as well as others for whom hope springs eternal.
We have a full season review (if you can bear it) as well as varying pieces looking at the McClaren appointment, Ashley’s intentions and various player profiles.
This issue is filled with history and nostalgia.
We have a team of finance experts who will help you understand the whole story about Newcastle United’s finances in very readable pieces. This stuff may not be typical fanzine writing but it is critical for the modern Mag who wants to be completely clued up about his/her club. This isn’t a fanzine for dummies.
But this massive Summer Special pulls in brilliant pieces from our writers all over the world – China, Brazil, Germany, Italy and Spain.
We have excellent pieces examining the wider issues of the game and we have brilliant articles examining the FIFA scandal as well as what the Tory victory in the General Election means for football supporters.
This issue ends our first full season as a fully digital fanzine and we are delighted with what we have produced. We have delivered a fanzine for the modern Newcastle United supporter which retains the traditional fanzine ethos but which harnesses the possibilities of the new technology. We believe we have delivered on a promise to produce a fanzine which is bigger, better, faster and cheaper than anything we ever did previously, notwithstanding that paper version was one of the best in the country. The feedback we have received has been excellent and we now believe there are more people than ever before receiving the true faith message via this website, our fanzine, The Special match-day newsletter, our videoblogs and podcasts. We are in a very strong position going forward to bring you the proudly independent and alternative coverage of our beloved football club as well as the game we all love.
I commend our Summer Special to you.
