TSB is a proper magazine, for Leeds fans, that this season was shortlisted for the seventh year in a row for The Football Supporters’ Federation Fanzine of The Year Award. We didn’t win (congratulations to Arsenal’s The Gooner), but we’re the only fanzine to have been shortlisted every year of the award, so it’s got to be worth two quid, right?

Saturday 5th May 1990 by Moscowhite — It must be our turn soon.

Tomorrow People by David Guile — In 1997 we were watching Richard Jobson in the first team, but had Jon Woodgate in reserve. Is history repeating at Thorp Arch?

The Kings of IAM by Andy P — While the end of the season has given us nothing to watch on the pitch, Andrea Radrizzani brought all the attention back to him.

The Unforgiven by Anthony Crewdson — Berardi’s ten games missed through suspension this season has one rival at Leeds: Billy Bremner, who missed eleven in 1974/75. Is Dirty Leeds only okay when we’re winning?

Too Young To Be So Old by Calum Archibald — While everybody’s excited about the new Academy prospects, the old ones haven’t grown much older.
