Our fourth issue of 2021/22 goes on sale outside Elland Road for the game with Arsenal on Saturday 18th November, hopefully an eleven versus eleven match if Leeds can find some players. It’ll be on sale there for the Aston Villa, and Burnley games, too.

One of the best things about fans being back at Elland Road is fanzines being back at Elland Road, so this issue will be on sale outside before the kick-off. Look out for our windswept but friendly sellers by the Lowfields tunnel, Billy’s Statue, the Kop gates, and anywhere else someone is holding a fanzine in the air.

Getting a copy delivered to your home is still a very good idea, as it will arrive free of beer stains and torn corners, unless your postie is having a bad morning. Details on how to support us by subscribing can be found here.

As always our now nine 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 still 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.

Free-to-read in this issue is this article by Chris McMenamy, about how a relegation battle might not be fun, but at least it’ll keep things interesting, right?

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.
