Its fair to say United is at something of a crossroads. For the first time since the days of Sir Bobby Robson, we have a manager in Rafa Benitez who we all believe in and who has the potential to return us to our rightful place in the upper echelons of the Premier League and ensure the club is run as a proper sporting institution. There aren’t many amongst us who don’t believe in Rafa.

In the latest issue of true faith (TF125) one of our new writers Emma Thompson examines the position we are in and the forks in the road that lie ahead but specifically the opportunities which are possible for Mike Ashley.

The previous issue of true faith (TF124) was without question the most widely read issue we have ever published in all of tf125_ipadthe years we have been in existence since 1999. Obviously we were delighted with that and it provides a vindication of our move to  a free and digital format for the fanzine.

However, this current issue is already looking very much like it will far outstrip the readership figures we had for TF124 and mean the current issue will then be the most widely read one we have ever published. The numbers look like they are going to be the best we have ever had very soon and that is when we are only 3 weeks into having made the issue available to be downloaded. The true faith fanzine has never been more popular or widely read. Thank you for your support and the excellent feedback we receive from you.

true faith is Newcastle United’s longest running and most popular fanzine. We have been providing the alternative view on matters of a Black & White hue since 1999 and we have never missed a beat. true faith is the most widely read independent, fans’-led publication in the United Kingdom. The fanzine is written by supporters for supporters.

We had a long history of producing true faith as one of the most prominent hard copy fanzines in the UK but the continuing decline of the print media persuaded us we should embrace the digital age. We hope to include all of the bells and whistles of the new digital era whilst at the same time preserving the character, principles and features of true faith and the fanzine culture more generally. true faith is the modern fanzine for the modern, clued-up, traditional supporter.

Thank you all for your ongoing support.
