We’re striding into the second month of the season and Boro are still chasing their first home win of the season. Mind you we have yet to lose away from the Riverside and with two new signings in the squad will hope to kick on after this international break.

It is early September and we have already produced three fanzines. I remember when talk of summer football was just hot air, well it has certainly arrived for the Football League Championship in 2013.

Just in case you missed any of the first three fanzines of the season they are now available to buy, paying by paypal for £2 only. Please note this offer is open only to UK because of the crippling price of post overseas, it is bad enough in this country!

We started off with Issue 529 v Leicester City. There was an interview Issue 529with Captain Rhys Williams looking forward to the new season. Paddy Dillon went behind the keyhole of Gareth Southgate’s stately pile. Daniel Gray told us all about his latest book with its many Boro links in it.

You can buy Issue 529 v Leicester City here.



Issue 530ssue 530 v Blackpool featured Marvin Emnes on the cover, he was collecting points that week speeding down the A66 on a provisional licence. Inside there was a really interesting interview with football business expert David Conn talking about FFP and the Championship. Also a look back over his career with Boro great, David “Spike” Armstrong.

Alex Lewczuk, who anchors our fmttm podcasts called this the best ever issue of Fly Me To The Moon.



Issue 531Issue 531 v Sheffield Wednesday – Sat 31 August – Ross McCormack is hiding from Mowbray under a cardboard box on the cover, maybe signing a 4 year deal at Elland Road while under cover. Uncle Harry would rather keep wrestling and football separate, thank you very much. Neil Garratt had a serious message about mental health and football.


Issue 532 v AFC Bournemouth – Sat 21st September 2013 - Tony Issue 532Mowbray talks about the impact of new signings Jacob Butterfield and Kei Kamara, Stanistan also is interested in the New Arrivals. Neil Garratt writes about Boro legend, David Armstrong whose book The Bald Facts is reviewed. That all tied up nicely.



Issue 533 v Yeovil Town was dedicated to Boro's no.1 fan Frankie "Bam issue 533Bam" Bointon who sadly passed away last week. There are some of my memories of The Bam inside and some messages from others about a legendary supporter.


Mowbray SackedIssue 534 v Doncaster Rovers - Mowbray Scaked aftermath - one of the saddest issues ever to produce. When the divorce finally came through many fans were totally devastated and this issue reflects some of the raw emotions immediately after that separation. The almost brutal torment of that first hlaf at Oakwell is recounted again. Haunted looks on the manager's face. A very bad week indeed for Middlesbrough Football Club. A different club and support has emerged for better or for worse.


Issue 535Issue 535 v Watford - Fly Me To Venus Issue featured a Frank "Bam Bam" Bointon Junior talking about his dad - with some incredible memories shared about the life and times of The Bam.
Also inside Tom Green looks back on Mogga's Legacy and Fischer's cover ponder's over a possible Ravanelli return.

Issue 536Issue 536 v Bolton Wanderers and Fly Me To The Moon's 25th Birthday issue celebrating the fanzine form issue 1 Nov 26th 1988 v Sheff Wed - with articles from Paul Smith (Maximo Park), football writer Derek Hammond, Boro novelist John Nicholson, a big piece from Bob Fischer and loads more 25th birthday content.
Issue 537Issue 537 v Brighton and Hove Albion - included interviews with Muzzy Carayol and the newly honoured Doctor Dave Parnaby at Teesside Uni. A really funny article by Paddy Dillon is Challenge Karanka, Anneka style. We have our first Christmas items with Esteban talking us through the Grinch attempts to spoil Xmas in Grove Hill. Shame on him..


Issue 538Issue 538 v Burnley - Thur 26 Dec - Christmas issue featuring Golden Ticket party for special Children. Every time Sean Dyche Speaks... a frg loses its life on his larnyx.. From Norway with love why a group of Boro fans from Norway paid for Teesside children to go to watch the Boro play.
