Reports of the death of
BACKPASS have been greatly exaggerated!
The views of our loyal hardcore readers have persuaded Extra Time
Publishing to put the revamped EXTRA TIME & BACKPASS in mothballs
until the summer.
While most of the feedback regarding EXTRA TIME & BACKPASS was
positive and highly encouraging, there were subscribers who were
that the product had significantly changed in format.
We have listened to and acted upon those concerns, and BACKPASS will
now continue in its own right until at least the end of this
There will be three more issues of BACKPASS before subscriptions are
due again in the summer ... 43, 44 and 45 and they will be in the shops
as normal (Issue 43 will now be published in mid-March).
All three will be packed with retro football, with particular emphasis
from the 1960s to the 1980s. The modern-day game, as in previous
issues, will be restricted to a token coverage.
Issue 9 of BACKSPIN is also in the shops now. A
decision on BACKSPIN'S future will not be made now until March.
BACKSPIN 9 features Colin Cowdrey, Gordon Greenidge, Aftab
Baloch, Brian Statham, Jack Birkenshaw, John Derrick, Graham Gooch,
Neil Hartley, John Manners, Mike and Derek Taylor, The Oval press
box, Lost Grounds of Derbyshire, the 1984 season and much more besides.
It costs £4.20.
