2020-21 | Issue 06


This is TSB’s 31st season and we’re back in the Premier League, and staying there, definitely, don’t think about Fulham, just ignore them, they’re not there, it’s fine.

Whatever happens, we’re hopeful might get at least one attended game out of this league before our harrowing relegation back to sixteen years in the wilderness.

Until we can be back selling fanzines 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.

The best way to buy The Square Ball is to subscribe and get every regular issue delivered to your home for the next twelve months.

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.

Our sixth issue of 2020/21 would have come out for the visit of Frank Lampard Junior’s Chelsea, on Saturday 13th March. They’ve sacked him, so they’re plain old Chelsea again, but we’re still doing the mag.

You can buy it here, and we’ll post it out as soon as it’s printed. We’re throwing in some stickers with issue. STICKERS.

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 time we’ve got articles about Pascal Struijk, gridiron, Mansour Assoumani, overcrowded Elland Road, Cellino’s circus, and loads more.

You can order paper copies of issue six from this page now, and they’ll be sent out after the Chelsea game. With stickers! The digital pdf version is on sale here now too.

As Howard Wilkinson used to say, thank you for your magnificent support.
