You can now buy the February issue of fmttm, Issue 563 when we looked forward to January Transfer Window mega bucks striker Jordan Rhodes making his debut and shooting down his former club, Blackburn Rovers. Except he didn’t.. and we didn’t.

We drew in the end thanks to David Nugent stooping to conquer from Nsue’s cross. Rhodes had just come on as sub. The crowd at last had something to get stuck in to and roared us on and yet we might even then have conceded again when Rovers shot wide from a corner.

Enough about the Blackburn match. This issue contained an interview with former England physiotherapist, Alan Smith. A broken leg at the age of 17 cost the Middlesbrough born apprentice his career but taken under the wing of our then physio, Jimmy Heardidge, Alan blossomed into a great medic man himself, serving England with distinction for many years.

There is also a revealing account of the roots of this very fanzine from the man that coined the title, Fly Me To The Moon. Rob Boal was recently 50 years old and his surprise birthday party was crowned with a fmttm cake. He tells us in this issue about how he played a pivotal role in the early days of Fly Me back in the 1980s.

Talking of which artist Alan Morley reveals the artistry behind the cartoonery of the moon in Fly Me. And how he may have had a painterly role to play in the BritArt movement.

You can order this issue of the fanzine for just £2 including postage – UK Only.
