    When Saturday comes

    Not sure if many read this mag, i do and its quite good, there is a full page on dermot ahern`s suggestion of an all ireland lge in this months (march) edition

    actually there is generally at least two irish football articles each year in the mag, i was thinking of doing one myself about the new fai lge and maxi's stunt but thought better of it, uk readers would have an even worse view of our product then

    Yeah, there was a great article in WSC about a top striker in England versus a top (?) striker in Ireland. I guess it must be ten years since the article apperaed.

    The English player earned an absurd amount of money, had a garage full of new cars, lived in a mansion and was followed everywhere by media and fans. His name was Alan Shearer.

    The Irish lad earned a few measly quid, drove a battered Nissan Micra and, as a Monaghan United player, was not even recognised eve if he did cartwheels through the centre of Monaghan. His name was Aaron Shearer



    PS They have a website >>> www.wsc.co.uk

    I`ll try and scan it from home tonight. The mag is quite good as it only accepts articles from contributors who are critical of their subject/club etc.

    It's a great mag all right. An antidote to the Premiership hype you get in all the newspapers.

    A majority of the articles every month are related to non Premiership clubs or non-UK football.

    For those dub based its def on sale in easons, o'connel st, other parts of the country i`d safey assume larger newsagents all stock it as i used to buy it in dundalk each mth, i get it by post now.

    the mag would suit the majority on here as paudie/ollie suggested, it tends to stay clear of the premiership and has a regualr feature of small clubs/clubs in crisis and, also there is a lot of european pages too so its not just 100% uk football.

    Yeah, I used to get it in the newsagents down the road, but I subscribe now, so it comes by post.

    Had articles on Derry's win over Göteborg, the political aspect of the opening of Croke Park and Shels' win over Glentoran in recent times.

    I subscribe (but as I live in the UK it's easy) and it's a great read, the article in question is by Paul Doyle who does the Guardian Fiver and various other stuff on the Guardian website and I'm pretty sure is along with Barry Glendening is Irish (Barry is from Offaly AFAIK)

    You can buy WSC in Reads in Nassau St in Dublin
    IIRC a subscription to Ireland is pretty expensive though.

    The conference posting deserves a thread of its own I reckon

    you can buy WSC in most "big" newsagents, although they do seem to have problems with circulation from time to time.

    the problem with a subscription is that they apppear to sub-contract this out and unless you live in Britain, they (1) take the **** with the postage and packing charges and (2) they take an age to deliver [problem obviously exaserbated by mail to Australia].

    it's a great magazine, I had a subscription for about 15 years [all the mags nicely packed on the shelves in the shed], but I finally gave up on it last year for the reasons mentioned above.
