The Football Supporter (tfs) 021 – out now!

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The Football Supporter (tfs) is out now and – surprise, surprise – tfs 021 has gone World Cup crazy. In it our very own award-winning scribe Jonathan Wilson explains why he’d limit the World Cup to 16 teams – and why Fifa most certainly won’t.

Elsewhere tfs’ Jez Robinson looks at the history of World Cup mascots, from World Cup Willie onwards, and talks balls (World Cup balls, that is) with Marcus Hahnemann. tfs also speaks to fans from across the globe to ask the crucial question on everyone’s lips: “We like pies. What’s your favourite half-time snack?” Oh, and we asked how they think England will do in this World Cup carry-on as well.

It’s not all international football though as we look back on the domestic season and discover that three was indeed the magic number. There’s also the return of the (all new) Feverbitch alongside the usual jokes, japes and letters.
