Our eighth issue of 2020/21 is, we’re happy to say, coming out for the visit of West Brom, on Sunday 23rd May.

If you’re one of the lucky who got a ticket to watch some vintage Sam Allardyce before West Brom go back from whence we came, give the lads a cheer from us, won’t you?

Until we can be back selling fanzines to full houses in the cold and rain — and yes we do mean in May — we’re asking for your support to continue, by buying the magazine online and pretending you handed some coins over to someone on the Lowfields.

(Like that cover? Want it as a poster or a print? Then click right here!)

As always our eight times-nominated and two-times FSF Award winning fanzine (plus one for the podcast) 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 time we’ve got articles deriding Super Leagues, laughing at Sheffield Wednesday, stealing players and collecting rosettes. There’s a dream about Neil Warnock, too, because isn’t there always?

Free-to-read in this issue is this article by Dave Guile, comparing Leeds favourably with Manchester City in every possible way.

This has been an awkward, unusual and at times very sad season, but staying in the Premier League means we can look forward to doing things properly next season — and that includes selling this magazine outside the ground again.

Even when we’re back at Elland Road, though, subscriptions will help TSB’s world keep going round.

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 all through this season, it’s meant everything for keeping us going while Elland Road was closed. We hope you enjoy reading the mag. ◉
