Still just getting over the celebrations of turning 25 years old, that is The Mag by the way, unfortunately.
So 25 years and 1 month later we have another classic issue lined up for you, our crack team of writers making sense of the football club that fate has sentenced to be always on the edge of turmoil.
A couple of key features this month sees a return interview with friend of The Mag, BBC Radio 5 Live’s senior football reporter, Ian Dennis, while we also delve into the imagination of top north east crime fiction writer (and Newcastle fan) Mari Hannah.
All of this plus our team of writers from all walks of life, the only common factor being cursed by the same thing that unites us all, a love (and sometimes hate!) of Newcastle United.
We are now 25 years and 1 month older and slightly wiser, for only £3 you can join us for another rollercoaster ride – buy this essential issue now.
