2021-22 | Issue 04


TSB’s 32nd season won’t get worse than a 7-0 defeat on a Tuesday night, right? So it’s all fun and games from here.

There are plenty of good times in our new issue four, coming out when Arsenal visit Elland Road on Saturday 18th December 2021, and you’ll be able to get a copy for yourself from our sellers outside the ground. And if you love the cover, see below about buying that as a print.

Getting the magazine delivered to your home is also a very good idea, as it will arrive free of beer stains and torn corners, unless your postie is having a bad morning.

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.

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 and live streaming video of The Match Ball podcast, a digital sub 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.

If you don’t want to subscribe — why not?! — you can buy our fourth issue of the season on its own right here, and we’ll post it out as soon as it’s printed.

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 which also involves pain of being a Leeds United supporter, for more than 100 long, long years.

This time we’ve got articles on Raphinha, Nohan Kenneh, Kim Kardashian (yes), enjoying this despite y’know, John Carver’s Leeds circa 2006, Christmas with Max Gradel, winning the FA Cup in 2072 and more. There’s a little bit of Joffy too because why not, and some fog from the 1970s.

The cover artwork from this issue, by Arley Byrne, is available as a print. Click here to buy it, but please note that Christmas delivery will be a bit tight. It’ll be great whenever it arrives though, look at it, it’s magnificent.

You can order paper copies of issue four from this page now, and they’ll be sent out after the Arsenal game. The digital pdf version is also on sale here now.

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