This issue has been a lot of fun to put together. Our debut edition came together over four months and with no set release date in mind, so there’s been a fair bit of pressure trying to reach targets. The standard of the editorial content I feel is even better this time out though – covering a really wide range of topics, all of which are listed below.
Thank you to Sir Les, our club captain Bish and Billy Ivory for taking time out of their schedules to do interviews with us as well!
The season so far.
A report on how Eddy’s getting on at Carlisle from Carlisle fan Jake Phillips.
Andrew Dennis looks at how Football Manager might be shaping the thoughts of those on the terraces.
A review of new book Orientation – Spurs fan Adam Michie‘s account of a year watching Leyton Orient.
Interview with Neal Bishop about his time at Notts so far, including his thoughts on this season.
Supporter Ian Marsden‘s account of his evening in the company of Martin Allen.
Aston Perrin supplies his own take on the safe standing debate.
A new feature called Away Days, Sean Redgate‘s storys of his favourite games on the road.
Articles on two Notts greats – Tommy Johnson (by Luke Williamson) and Lee Hughes (Paul Smith).
An interview with Sir Les Bradd!
A review of Diary Of A Football Nobody – and an interview with Billy Ivory conducted by Darren Patterson.
Footballers and their superstitions by Dave Straw.
Keith Curle and his tactics this season as analysed by Jacob Daniel.

Then we’ve got a competition as well – to win a copy of the play Diary Of A Football Nobody signed by the entire eight member cast!
The feedback we received for issue one was amazing, so much better than anything I could’ve imagined – but i’m quite confident that issue two is a fair bit better – I have loved reading the articles as they’ve come in.
