Issue 11 features David Beckham on the cover. But we’re not talking about the modern Beckham who rides motorcycles and sits courtside at Wimbledon and buys American franchises, we’re celebrating just how good he was at football. The hard running, corner whipping, free-kick taking metronome who played every game like he was in on the park against the big kids. Even Roy Keane loves him, and Roy Keane doesn’t like anyone.
Elsewhere in the issue we’ve got Snoop Dogg in an Ajax kit, 180 minutes of non-league Merseyside madness, Roberto Baggio talking about goals, Japanese snow football, trackie tops, tennis balls and a highly statistical* analysis of whether God means more goals.
And there’s more, loads more. Impenetrable in-jokes, strong booze, nice clothes, 90s nostalgia and one man’s day in the pub with Dr Socrates.
*it’s not that statistical. But it is funny.
