A Love Supreme
It's that time of the month where all your senses are treated to a brand new edition of A Love Supreme. The feel, the small, the sight... just everything about it is quite frankly, in one word, mint. If like us you're ridiculously excited by this fact, here's a peak at what's inside.
Right then ladies and gentlemen, do we have a treat for you! It's a look inside the world-famous, best-selling, award-winning and best looking Sunderland fanzine on the market - A Love Supreme.
Now in it's 216th issue, and stronger than ever, there's loads going on inside this month's edition, including our own column there, but loads more besides! There's a great in-depth interview with SAFC Cheif Executive, Margret Byrne. There's also some other superb stuff in the form of Mint Awaydays, the latest from Francis Todd Malone, a review of the month, and some hard-hitting stuff on this James McClean business in what's a superb issue.
Plus there's a little gem of an article about a formerly beloved Sunderland player who's now enjoying a second lease of life across the channel, Steed Malbranque. In fact, we're privileged enough to bring you a snippet of that right here;
However, just as quickly as he joined Les Verts, he mysteriously disappeared. Rumours of a sick son were quickly squashed, only for the French club to cancel his contract by mutual consent and announce his retirement the very next day. He'd later say of his decision: "I never said that (I retired). I did not take pleasure in training. I tried to be happy but I could not be."
After 18 months in the wilderness, Steed re-emerged at Lyon at the start of this season, where his magnificent recent form has seen a remarkable resurrection of a career that, not too long ago, looked over.
Not too shabby at all eh? You can find the rest of that story and all the above in this months edition. But how can you, the humble Sunderland supporter get one? Let me tell you, it's quite easy.
One option would be to head to the ground on Saturday and get one from one of the fine sellers dotted around the ground in exchange for just £2.50.
Or head to your local newsagents or supermarket. Pretty much all of them have a copy, so go and get it!.
Or finally just save yourself both faff and money by subscribing. Head HERE and choose your option. You can now get a digital edition too for those overseas, or you can still subscribe to the hard copy. Either way, you will not regret it for one moment.
Get a copy by whatever means. I implore you. Get out and do it as soon as you can! GO GO GO!
