THAT Papiss Cisse Cover Shot

9 years ago

This month we have to give a big mention to Jonathan Robson.

When Papiss Cisse scored that late winner against Fulham at St.James’ Park, then launched himself into the Milburn/Gallowgate corner crowd, Jonathan was ready and waiting to take the classic photo that summed up the moment….we don’t quite know how he managed it as everybody was going mental around us!

Thankfully though, Jonathan’s cool head and steady hands mean that we have this brilliant cover shot for the special derby issue of The Mag which is out this Saturday (order online here), which Jonathan has kindly let us use.

The photo has been featured widely and if you’d like to see how he originally released it to the world via twitter, follow him @TaylorsFistpump

The new issue features an exclusive interview with fit again Tim Krul. Our number one keeper reckons he has taken on a bit of the ‘Geordie Mentality’, we’ll take that as a compliment!

Europe has provided some great highs this season and as always our team of writers cover every blade of grass, the new issue including accounts of visits to Lisbon and Moscow.

Sunday 14th April sees the visit of Sunderland to St.James’ Park, not a match for the faint hearted but it brings out the best in The Mag as we look forward to the derby.

An issue not to be missed.
