Some weird and wonderful requests have come our way down the years but very occasionally, someone makes us an offer we can’t refuse (though not I hasten to add in the manner of classic Italian-Amercan gangster film noir) and one of them came in the form of an offer of a game of 5-a-side featuring none other than Rob Lee.

There was no shortage of takers for a chance to share a dressing room with one of the best midfielders to have ever pulled RobLee2on a Newcastle United shirt but in the end it was the lads from the true faith weekly podcast who made their way down to Dunston to meet up with a player who was such a key part of the renaissance led by Kevin Keegan in the early and mid-1990s.

Simon Campbell has done the honours for us with this excellent write-up of an amazing day. There is also a short interview with Rob Lee which was recorded in Podcast format and you’ll be able to listen to that as well.

There has been a staggering reaction to the publication to this latest issue of true faith (TF124) and we are really grateful for all of the positive feedback we’ve received from you. Its very encouraging and we really appreciate it. Thousands of you have downloaded this latest issue already but obviously we are very keen for more of you to do the same.

true faith is already Newcastle United’s number one fanzine but its also the most widely read, independent supporters’ led publication in the country. The fanzine carries everything you would be familiar with as a reader of our previous hard-copy version but in the new digital format it now has some added bells and whistles and extra pages which we think makes true faith better than it has ever been and at the forefront of the new era in fanzines nationally.

We are also now in a position where we can offer you the opportunity to read true faith for absolutely FREE. The fanzine works brilliantly on any device you care to mention but more and more of you are taking true faith on tablets, i-pads and smart-phones. That is exactly as we intended. All you need to do to get into the full issue of true faith is to click onto the image below and that’s it you’ll be there. We all hope you enjoy it.
