As might have been expected the latest issue of true faith  is rammed with reactions to the appointment of Rafa Benitez as Newcastle United manager (read that again, doesn’t it make you feel all warm inside?) and whilst we’d recommend you to put some time aside and read the whole of the fanzine maybe as a starting point you could take a few minutes to read Alex Hurst’s excellent piece – VIVA LA RAFALUTION which is a mix of hope, anticipation, caution and just about every other emotion I’m guessing all of us have gone through over the last few months.

Alex’s article – VIVA LA RAFALUTION is in the new true faith SUMMER SPECIAL issue and you can get at it here.

You can follow Alex on twitter here – @tfalex1892 too.


Of course you can just dive into the new issue by simply clicking on the image below and thousands of you have already. true faith is Newcastle United’s longest running and by some distance its most widely read fanzine. Having published 111 issues in hard copy we converted to an exclusively digital format for issue 112 and as a consequence of that, our readership has soared, the content and breadth of our coverage has deepened and widened and we have never been as widely read as we are now.

Its no idle boast to describe true faith as the most widely read independent, supporters’-led publication in the UK.

This is a Newcastle United supporters’ publication. But it is a publication for people who also love football and love to experience it all over the world and also down the street. The digital format of the fanzine works brilliantly on any device including PCs, lap-tops, tablets, i-phones, smart-phones and i-pads. We heartily recommend it to you.

Just click for kicks.
