BACKPASS is back!
Reports of the death of BACKPASS have been greatly exaggerated ...
The views of the loyal hardcore readers of BACKPASS
Extra Time Publishing to put the revamped EXTRA
& BACKPASS on the back burner for the time being. While plenty
of the feedback regarding EXTRA TIME
& BACKPASS was
positive and highly encouraging, there were subscribers who were
particularly vocal that the product had significantly changed in
format. Extra Time Publishing have listened to and acted upon those
and BACKPASS will now continue in its own right until at least the end
of this season. There will be three more issues of BACKPASS this season
... 43, 44 and 45 and they will be in the shops
as normal. All three will be packed with retro football, with
particular emphasis from the 1960s to the 1980s.
(pictured) will be in the shops on Saturday, March 14 and will feature
Jim Baxter, Nigel Callaghan, Russell Craig, Steve Kindon, Dave Mackay,
Mike Pinner, Ian Rush, Garry Stanley, Adrian Heath in the USA, FA Cup
finals of the 1960s, the 1968-69 FA Cup, Walsall's African adventure,
Wembley's injury hoodoo, the 1958-59 season, the Daily Express
Five-a-Sides and much more.
ISSUE 42 is
also to be reissued
in BACKPASS format only ... for keen collectors of the magazine. It
will be a limited edition and will feature Sir Stanley Matthews on the
cover and also include all of the retro articles in EXTRA TIME &
BACKPASS, plus several others. See the BACKPASS page.
BACKPASS and BACKSPIN
will both be available in digital formats in the next few weeks. They
will be available via the website www.magzter.com
Issue 9 of BACKSPIN
is in the shops now. A decision on the future of BACKSPIN will be made
soon. BACKSPIN 9 features Colin Cowdrey, Gordon
Greenidge, Afrtab 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.
