Just to let you all know we are working really hard on the next issue of true faith (TF115) tf114_cover_ipadand we have some outstanding material lined up for you. Naturally, we’ll be leadng with everything that is going on at Newcastle United – with accounts on every area of the club but as that can be a bit depressing we also have loads of other material as well.

Once again, we are going large on history and nostalgia and we have some wonderful pieces lined up for you. That’s not to forget some fantastic pieces we have which chart the experiences of your fellow Mags and the football cultures they have adopted in Italy, Brazil, Korea and Spain.

And of course we have our regular contributions from the people you have come to know and love.

The next issue will be out on the 17/Oct/14. An annual subscription is £17.99 but you can opt for the quarterly rolling subscription of £5.99 if you choose.

true faith has been in existence since 1999 and is established as one of the most prominent, best known, respected and widely read fanzines in the country.

For the last three successive years, true faith has reached a short-list of six from hundreds of titles nationally for the Football Supporters Federation’s Fanzine of the Year award.

All subscriptions get instant access to the current issue as well as over 30 issues in our archive.

We are delighted to let you know we have renewed our partnership with Northern ThreadsMASTRUM, the men’s designer clothing store of great repute. Northern Threads are offering a 10% discount to all true faith readers for all items bought online with a value of £100+.

The discount code is TF10.

As well as that Northern Threads is offering a 15% in-store discount on all purchases of over £100 when you show your Newcastle United season ticket. That can rack up to a canny little saving.

You can visit the Northern Threads website by clicking here.

Northern Threads has two superb shops and is based in central South Shields – one store is on Ocean Road opp. Kirkpatrick’s pub and the other is on Fowler Street. Both are a 2-minute stroll from South Shields Metro Station but for those travelling by car, there is ample and cheap parking nearly.

Its a great service with friendly staff and the business has absolutely nothing to do with Mike Ashley, unlike Van Mildert and Cruise. So, if you like to be smart and you don’t want to give Ashley any dough, head to Northern Threads.


Every Saturday, our fanzine within a fanzine, the true faith : SATURDAY SPECIAL hits thesat_spec_32_samsung in-boxes of our subscribers. It is all original content taking a wry look at the world of football as well as life on the B& W planet of course.

The SATURDAY SPECIAL is usually the work of our deputy editor, young Mr Gareth Harrison but this week a collection of our writers is working on the next missive as our man is off abroad again on holiday and doing a passable imitation of Judith Chalmers.

It is all 100% absolutely FREE of charge and all you have to do is click here to get signed up.


Our online merchandise operation is now fully operational and we have some brilliant items on sale for you.

First up is this wonderful selection of unique and limited issue pin-badges which celebrate the culture of our support. This isn’t mass-produced tat and we are very unlikely to reproduce the same badges again, so once they have gone, they have gone in all likelihood.

Here they are:







You can buy all of the badges in a collection or you can buy them individually. Just click here. 

We also have two Bucket Hats on sale which pay tribute to the contributions made to our club by David Kelly and Gavin Peacock. As you would expect one comes in a rather fetching Black & White and the other in our familiar away colours (some times) of Yellow & Green.

These hats have been very, very popular and there aren’t that many left in stock so make your moves now if you want one. Here they are as below – just click here to get one … or two …














Thanks for reading.

That is all.
