    Has "Forever Forest" been mentioned? I remember the 'Brian' as black and white and just printed out and stapled together, whilst the two young lads (I think) who did 'Forever Forest' tried to get it upmarket and in colour.

    It either went bust or I lost interest, because I can't remember much else about it.

    Looks my letter was in issue 8 as there's some replies to where "Forest Ever Forest" originated from in issue 9.

    30 years ago wow!

    I used to go to SportsPages on Charing Cross Road - they had a whole section given over to fanzines of all clubs

    There were some great titles then!
    "One nil up, two one down"
    "King of the Kippax"
    "A kick up the R's"
    and unforgettably, "Brian Moore's Head Looks Uncannily Like The London Planetarium"

    Any more you can remember?

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Issue 12, once again a bit of fiddling about, this time because of some strange and as far as I can see some unnecessay formatting.

    THESE ARE BRILLIANT! Big props to Garibaldi badger for the hard work scanning all these in.

    We recently worked on a project archiving another out of print publication from Nottingham in the nineties called Overall magazine. It was a bit like Leftlion and would have shared a shelf with Brian in Selectadisc.

    You can view the archives of that here > https://www.overallmag.com/archive/

    I think the Brian Moore one was Gillingham. But the title came from the lyrics to Dickie Davies Eyes by the Tranmere supporting Half Man Half Biscuit.

    Didn't Millwall have one called 'No One Likes Us' ?

    Bradford had 'City Gent'

    Heroes and Villains (Villa)

    I remember buying a bunch of them from sports pages in the early 90s, including a few of the ones you mentioned.

    If you look at the „When Saturday Comes“ Twitter feed, they’re doing a retrospective on old-style fanzines.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    I never read The Brian but it looks decent to be fair. I used to get the Tricky Tree from the seller by the Boat Club.

    With the advent of social media, you don't really see much in the way of fanzines anymore, although World Soccer has decent writing and remains a monthly purchase.

    Instead it's all recycled clickbait from the lamentable local publication and rubbish quizzes about how many 90s football kits you can remember.

    looking through these posts I wondered when I started reading "Brian" and the earliest issue I could find is Number 17. Also in the pile was the Cup Final Special Issue with my ticket stapled to the cover.

    Funny how these things slip your mind. I can't remember keeping the ticket, most of them I just dump.

    Thanks for the comments from those of you who are enjoying these Brians.

    I've now scanned all of the issues I have, except for the larger Summer Special, which i hope to get round to next week. So apart from the need for the occasional rescan, this leaves the editing and converting of the scans.

    The last copy I have is 47, this is from October 93 and I would be surprised if they finished mid seasom, although they always seemed to be in a precarious financial position.

    I also seem to be missing issues 29 and 44, so I hope no one is particularly looking forward to them.

    I only just tried to have a look, and it seems the printed fanzine is still going strong. I just assumed the internet had killed them.

    Currently on twitter WSC are reviving their list of printed fanzines:

    And this is in there

    The post FA Cup edition. The TV Experts Page has comments from Bob Wilson "..he's an exceptionally nice lad..."
    and Jimmy Hill "...a lot of warmth in what he does..."
    Accompanied by pictures of that nice lad commiting GBH on Charles and Parker.

    Pages 2 and 3 are just about readable, as the original copy was jut about readable. I think that's because a matrix printer was used.
    Desk top publishing is astonishingly easier now.

    Another example in the difference in technology/media, is the letter asking if anyone from Ireland had video taped a game between the republic and Hungary.
    Now you'd just find it online somewhere.
