The Long Ball Issue 1

My friends over at The Long Ball have been busy over the last few weeks producing a new online football magazine. Issue 1 is out now packed full football from around Europe and best of all it’s free!

The Roller coaster ride that is football

In the summer of 2015 there was optimism in the air after a long hard 2014/15 season, yet before we know it pre-season has started.

This is where football fans invest every Saturday to following their team up and down the country or by sneaking a listen to the radio at work. Girlfriends and boyfriends try and change this habit by taking us shopping or giving us house choirs but our club’s twitter feed is never far away on our phones.

You can read the full article below and much more. The Long Ball also run a Football Manager stories site alongside their sports journalism site and are looking for contributors for both.

The next edition of the magazine in due out in early May so get writing!
