Now England are out of the World Cup, BACKPASS 60 will go to print this weekend … and will be sent out to subscribers in the middle/end of next week. It should be in the shops from next weekend or the week commencing July 23. Issue 60 was planned to be on sale this weekend but we delayed publication until England either won the World Cup … or went out! Issue 60 includes part two of Gerry Harrison’s revealing interview with Pele and Phil Shaw’s personal recollections of the 1998 World Cup in France. Plus Gareth Southgate in Reporting for Duty, interviews with Joe Royle, Phil Parkes (the ex-Wolves keeper), Paul Bennett, Bobby Brown, Carlton Palmer and Burton Albion chairman Ben Robinson, Norman Giller on the great Johnny Haynes, Henry Blofeld of TMS fame, classic kits from 1988-89, Plymouth Argyle from 1945 to 1970, Alan Hinton on his title-winning Derby County team-mates in 1971-72, memories of Fellows Park, Walsall, the 1962-63 FA Cup, an extract from the new book on Billy Wright, Craig Brown on the Scottish School of Physical Education and our comprehensive obituary section, including 1966 World Cup winner Ray Wilson, Roy Bentley, Alan Gilzean and Graham Lovett. Intriguingly there are also pictures of Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa …
