If anyone (like me) is a bit sick of the awful standard of a lot of sports writing and would like something more in-depth and interesting, you might like The Blizzard. It's a new quarterly thing featuring a load of good writers.

I've got the pilot issue and I'm very impressed by it. Thought some people might want to check it out.

 

(BTW, I've got nothing to do with the people who make it or anything sinister like that!)

"The Blizzard was born in a pub, the night last year Sunderland beat Bolton 4-0."

I have read issue Zero. It was very good, some top writing.

 

Same, I was really impressed. Think each issue costs £10 though.

 

Regular monthly's about a fiver now, tbh.

Always wondered about the quality of this mag, might check it out now. Still pretty cheap considering what you'd spend a month on FourFourTwo, WSM and any other magazine you might buy.

Just got my printed copy of Issue One, looks and feels quality but I haven't started reading it yet.

 

Actually has an interview with Dennis Bergkamp where he talks about that Dabizas goal.

 

Haven't received mine yet :( Bergkamp had an interview in 442 a few months back (The Striker Special with Shearer on the Cover), where he said that he didn't mean for his goal to be exactly like that. However, he had in his mind to turn with the ball past Dabizas, so when it didn't go with him, he was already on the turn, and it was just a bit of luck that it came together for a class goal.
