Our first issue of 2020/21 would have come out for the return of Premier League football to Elland Road, against Fulham on 19th September.

We’re still bringing it out for that game, but instead of getting it at the ground, you’ll have to buy it here, and we’ll post it out on Monday morning after the match.

Leeds United are in the Premier League, and so is The Square Ball, but thankfully we’re still free of Martin Keown’s opinions unless we’re laughing at him.

As always our seven times-nominated and twice FSF Award winning fanzine includes lots of pages of articles and artwork about what used to be the pain but now is the glory of being a Leeds United supporter, for 100 long, long years.

This is TSB’s 31st season and there’s nowhere we’d rather be than the Premier League, with Marcelo Bielsa and Kalvin Phillips.

Actually, we’d rather be at Elland Road, but Covid-19 means that still doesn’t look possible for the foreseeable.

So we’re asking for your support to continue, buying the magazine online and pretending you handed some coins over to someone on the Lowfields.

The best way to buy The Square Ball this season is to subscribe and get every issue delivered to your home.

That way we know how many to print, and we have the money up front to pay the printer. We’ll post anywhere in the world and you won’t miss an issue.

Starting this season, you can get £10 off a subscription to the paper magazine if you buy an annual subscription to TSB+, our digital bundle. TSB+ gets you all our podcasts advert free, early access to The Match Ball podcast, digital access to the magazine, a daily email, discounts and more — and that tenner off getting the paper version delivered.

There’s more information about subscriptions here, and our easy subscription builder will walk you through the process here.

If you just want paper or digital versions of this issue, you can buy them here.

Subscribers can read all the new articles on our website, handy on the phone on the bus to the match or when you’re skiving at work.

Just log in and find the new issue under Magazine, On Paper.

Thanks as always for supporting The Square Ball — we hope you enjoy reading the mag. ◉

Cody Drameh is out of Elland Road and Leeds United are out of the cup, but that doesn't mean we can't play West Ham again and again. Instead of getting bogged down with VAR talk, there's game show chat as we pick a hero and villain.

Carnage!
Supporter reaction to the defeat at the London Stadium; some from Leeds fans, some from Hammers fans, and some from - get this - neutral fans in attendance. What a strange world.
