Unsurprisingly, the sad news about Gary Speed features strongly in the new issue, an excellent player with great character, we pay tribute.

In this issue we have a real exclusive as we carry an extensive interview with Alan Pardew after the manager’s invitation to spend a day up at the training ground, intriguing stuff.

Also, read our top columnists such as Boy About Town, Sweet Left Foot, Billy Furious and Gavin Webster Live!
