We start at the start and a superb 3-0 win over Birmingham City. Pulis defeating Monk, with Garry Monk’s star striker signing Britt Assombalonga almost bursting the net with his first half strike. After that the woodwork was bruised a bit by Boro. Former Blues keeper Darren Randolph made a few more than useful saves for us too.

Anyway, the first fanzine of the season includes star writers Dan Gray and Will Nett, what else? Loads of stuff crammed into 32 pages, for our first footing into the SEASON. This is for UK only. Paper fanzine sent through the post. Click Here



588Issue 588 v Swansea City - Second fanzine of the season and there was a long wait for this but was it worth it for the performance and the result? Maybe not. But hopefully the fanzine content was more eagerly devoured. Paddy Dillon argues it is time to pull your Braithwaite. Ian Smith fesses up to being a real fanboy. While we get all Mighty Redcar on you and Tosh Warwick reflects on an unexpectedly epic Russia World Cup tour.

Issue 589Issue 589 v Nottingham Forest – and this was the game where Aitor Karanka came back to haunt us – big style. There was anger over the £75 shirts. Anger over failings exposed at Hull. But hell we were good on tv at Ipswich. Loads of stuff remembering AK, for better and for worse. And the day after National Poetry Day we had verses absolutely overflowing from the pages as everyone was getting all Wordsworth.


Issue 590Issue 590 v Wigan Athletic – the special Fly Me To The Moon 30 years edition 1988 – 2018 – bags of nostalgia in the 32 pages as well as current Boro – collectors item I would have said. No fanzine collection can be without this historic milestone edition. Bomb Scares, Gittens and Alan Moore – from Peter jellylegs to the Twel2th man, Red Faction to the Spirit of Steaua. Instafans, Captain Cook Boro fan and a roll call of Fly Me crew past and present -  we are awash with an unashamed look back buzz.


issue 591Issue 591 v Sheffield Wednesday – Oh no Boxing Day – the one we all want to forget – Adam Reach ruined everyone’s Christmas – but hey ho! The fanzine was a Christmas cracker – Boro’s Christmas Gift proclaimed our native nativity cover. Interviews with Bernie Slaven and former team mate Colin Cooper at the emotional close of the Finaly Cooper Fund. A reflection on a funny old year from Garry Monk departure to #PressureonPulis and lots of Christmas glitter and glitterati. Ho Ho Ho

Issue 592Issue 592 v Millwall – surely Paddy’s no1# cover Lewis Wing is HOPE – they were in NME Top 100 pics for 2019 but which of Avalanche Party was once a keeper at the Academy? Read the AV interview. Top of the Nops from Paddy Dillon and star author Daniel Gray – a classic fmttm look back at Boro musical collaborations. Or were they really? Talking of authors – Boro Phallacy writer Mick Richardson recalls rubbing shoulders and dust offs with Paul Kerr and Bryan Robson. And a magical poem to Ali and Bernie..

Issue 593Issue 593 – features another mega cover by Paddy Dillon. It really is a cover to covet, so to speak. Also – interview with Paul Smith (Maximo Park) to reflect his pride in being selected to headline Middlesbrough Town Hall 130 year celebrations. Former Match of the Day editor and Boro fan, and Fmttm writer, Paul Armstrong picks up the pen again to tell us a little background behind his debut book, Why Are We Always On Last? It is about MoTD but I think you guessed that. Surrealist comic, Scott Turnbull, subverts the medium with his Spirit of 86, middle page spread... the return of Football Unfocused and so, so much more besides.

594Issue 594 v Brentford - Another packed issue featuring interviews with Ashley Fletcher and Jonny Howson, our first player interviews for sometime. It was all part of a week of action to focus on the activities and projects carried out by Boro's charity wing, MFC Foundation. There is another star interview - this time with Yusuf Boro fan - he tells us a bit of background, of how a lad from near Wembley started following Boro and then vlogging. We learn about his own Boro highs and lows and his thoughts about our current prospects. Much more besides...

Issue 596 v Reading - last fanzine of the season.
