RED ALL OVER THE LAND

ISSUE 201

So just as I’d got this copy ready the news broke that Luis Suárez was Barça bound. Of course it didn’t come as a shock and like a few times in the past we could fill this Fanzine with Suárez material but there’s nothing new to say. What happened in Brazil has been flogged to death and although it gets a mention there are other things to talk about, such as how good last season was. We’ll close the Luis chapters in the next issue when the dust has settled and the news reporters have ridden out of town.
We’ve got new players and by the time the season starts we could have more. That’s why I wanted to do a pre-season issue; clear last season away and start with the new on the opening day. That’s the plan but of course things can always change. They usually do.
So RED ALL OVER THE LAND is up and running again. As ever it’s again a case of touch and go to as how long we continue. We welcome everyone, new and old. Plans are afoot, we’ve worked hard during the summer in a bid to raise the Zines profile. However, a few dozen or so new subscribers wouldn’t go amiss.
Pre-season looked a bit more competitive than in the past with a good standard of opposition faced in America along with Dortmund at Anfield. Those games and the ones in Brondby and Preston will be covered in Issue 202.
My editorials are going to be shorter but maybe not sweeter. We pray for good weather as much as we pray for good results. We’ve even had the Plaza and Grassy Knolls redeveloped.
Enjoy the Fanzine and see you around the fields where houses used to be?
