In the last few days we’ve made a few updates to our webstore as we prepare for next season. We’ve removed all of the sold out items to make it easier to seek out what it is you’re looking for.
We’ve also reduced to half price the remaining stock of issues 3 & 4 (Gary Liddle & Julian Kelly respectively).
Also Stand Against Modern Football #4 is now half price at just £1.
Plus we have three copies of issue 5 signed by Lee Hughes.
Finally we have the item pictured above – a framed set of photos, signed by each of the players who appeared on the cover of Black & White in our first season. This is strictly limited to ONE on sale.
It might’ve taken us a while to get there – but we did eventually!
This is an interview we’d been chasing from the moment Lee Hughes’ move to Port Vale was first mentioned, right before it collapsed. We figured at that point that Hughesy’s days at the club were numbered so we’d need to get hold of him somehow!
What follows is mostly an exercise in polishing the excrement that has become our season.
Since getting home from Bournemouth last night I’ve read some quite staggering perspectives on defeat on the south coast and thought I’d bust out a blog with my thoughts.
Issue 4 is on it’s way to the printers this week and should be getting sent around to subscribers by the end of the weekend. Here’s the full list of what’s inside with details of how to pre-order at the bottom of the page!
The issue didn’t actually work out as had been planned. The interview we’ve spent the past two months chasing for whatever reason hasn’t happened, but it’s not something we’re going to give up on so it’ll take place at some point I’m sure!
One year on after defeat Hartlepool cost Martin Allen his job, Keith Curle suffers a similar fate.
Yesterday’s embarrassing defeat up north proved to be the last straw for Notts’ top brass in a decision which can’t really have surprised too many people who have seen County play in the last few months. And let’s be honest – patience isn’t something you can really associate with our club over the past couple of decades.
On Friday night, with my regular driver Sean out of commission for the weekend I made the decision to travel to Portsmouth for our game the next day. Having missed the FA Cup tie earlier in the season I didn’t want to miss a second opportunity to visit Fratton Park.
So off I went to ticket booking website to sort things out. I was faced with a nine hour roundtrip, that would leave me by the end of the day needing two buses, five trains and one tube connection. And all for the affordable rate of a few pennies shy of £90. The price didn’t put me off in the slightest – all worth it as far I’m concerned.
Issue Three has this afternoon been sent to the printers so I thought I’d bring people up to speed with what’s happening.
It’s another fine issue. Perhaps I’m bound to say that but I genuinely feared we might run out of steam but so far things are going fantastically. I couldn’t be any happier with the articles being submitted, the interviews are going brilliantly whilst on the pitch…well, meh.Two out of three’s fine with me!
We’ve taken on a number of new writers as well which bodes very well for the future of Black & White. Click Read More for the full contents of the latest release.
Almost two months to the day since Notts County last won at home (dispatching Portsmouth from Meadow Lane with consumate ease), Paolo Di Canio’s traveling circus pulled up in NG2 hoping to heap more pressure on Keith Curle after another tumultuous week in the club’s recent past.
After last week’s 2-2 draw at Scunthorpe, hopes would’ve been high going into the new week having seen a glimpse of the old Lee Hughes. He would be unsurprisingly back on the bench for Tuesday’s game at Preston North End – only to be handed a three match ban later for an off the ball elbow back at Glanford Park.
Issue two of Black & White is back from the printers! Subscribers should be receiving their copies ahead of tomorrow’s game at home to Crawley Town.

With the news that issue two has today been sent to the printers, I made the decision to stick issue one online for anyone that might not have seen it. This is a one time thing and won’t be happening with future issues. Check it out here via the Issuu website.
Remember – you can subscribe here and get issue two ahead of it’s matchday release. Subscribers should in fact receive their copies by the weekend if we crack on quickly enough!
The details of what’s to come on issue two meanwhile are available here still.
