Final Issue Of The Mag – Limited Copies Back In Stock
We have just received a new limited supply of the final issue of The Mag from our distributors and these are available in our online shop HERE.
This final Mag is a real collectors’ piece as writers reflect on twenty six years and 289 issues of writing about Newcastle United.
Writers say fond farewells in their own unique ways, a ‘timeless’ issue that sees our team reminisce about the great, and not so great, times covering our club over the last two and a half decades.
The following is a tempting snippet of what to expect in this real quality final issue.
In his ‘Sweet Left Foot’ column, co-founder of The Mag, Chris Tait, recalls the first ever issue in August 1988;
‘Looking back at that first issue is like dipping your toe into a lost forgotten age of innocence and inexperience.
An article I willingly and confidently sent out into the world highlighting proposed changes to television coverage of our national game now looks like it was written by a man-child who had spent a large part of his life in a cave trying to work out how he could lick his big toes without falling over.
I know I’m from Bensham/Dunston but still.
My shock and disgust at the prospect of fans having to pay an additional fee to watch football via a non-terrestrial device now seems laughably akin to me pointing up at a passing aircraft and dancing a confused jig of frustration at this big metal bird in the sky, a sight many of you who drive through Pennywell on a regular basis will no doubt recognise.‘
