  • Paper Subscription | 2019-20 | Half Season

    From: £30.00 / year and a £15.00 sign-up fee
    Receive four printed copies of The Square Ball during the rest of our (hopefully glorious) 2019/20 season, starting with issue 5, released for the game against Sheffield Wednesday on January 11th 2020. Price includes delivery and you only pay the sign-up fee now: £15 in the UK, £22.50 in Europe, £30 in the rest of the world. Your subscription will automatically become a full-season subscription for 2020/21 on July 1st 2020 at the full season rate, unless you cancel before then. We'll remind you nearer the time. • How does it work? This is a recurring subscription product that will take payment now for the rest of the 2019/20 season and will attempt to renew the subscription by taking payment from the same card for each following season on 1st July, unless you cancel the subscription. You can cancel your subscription at any time via the My Account button and we will take no further payments. Unfortunately, we can't issue refunds for subscriptions cancelled part-way through the season. • Can you explain the price? Because this is a recurring subscription, the price is given in two parts: the 'sign up fee' and the 'subscription price'. The sign up fee is the fee for the 2019/20 season. The subscription price is then the full price per season thereafter. The language used is just a quirk of the software used in the online store. • When will I get my magazines? Your half-season subscription will start with issue 5, published for the Sheffield Wednesday game on January 11th 2020. All new magazines are sent out by standard delivery around the matchday they first go on sale. This is usually on the Monday following a weekend game, but can occasionally be on the Friday ahead of the game, depending on print deadlines.

  • 30 years ago, the season The Square Ball began, Leeds United won promotion. 20 years ago, in 1999/00, Leeds qualified for the Champions League. And it's now 10 years since 2009/10, when we left League One behind after three lost years, making Alex Ferguson's nose just a bit redder on the way. The Square Ball Winter Special is a celebration of our last promotion team, a perfect read to get you ready for the run-in to crowning our next one. Unless the run is anything like it was in 2010, in which case, buckle up. This 148 page magazine has a spine, top quality paper, and loads of great articles and artwork by TSB's brilliant contributors. Inside you'll find:
    • Oral histories of January 3rd at Old Trafford and May 8th at Elland Road, featuring contributions from Simon Grayson, Richard Naylor, Andrew Hughes, Michael Doyle, Casper Ankergren, Glynn Snodin, Phil Hay, Adam Pope, Paul Dews and Joe Urquhart
    • Rob Conlon talks to Simon Grayson about where his side could and should have gone next
