Remember the last time we put an issue of popular STAND fanzine on sale back at the start of the season? If you missed issue 95, it was essentially forty pages of people being decidedly unenthusiastic about the football ahead, trying to justify their attendance, and generally fearing the worst. What a bloody difference two months can make. Continue reading “popular STAND fanzine issue 96”
Is it really a new season, without a bloke standing under a statue with a bag of paper at his feet, cursing the ice-cream van that’s parked up on his patch? Course it isn’t, so whilst we might’ve all had a lovely time at the Southend seaside, we all know things don’t get properly underway until this Saturday, when you get to turn back the cover on an August edition of popular STAND fanzine. Continue reading “popular STAND fanzine issue 95”
Yep. Another fanzine. Already. Less than a month after our 20th birthday issue we’re back again with the difficult follow-up edition, popular STAND fanzine number 94. The perfect accompaniment to the afternoon, and something to read during those quiet moments, you know, like Rovers attacks. Continue reading “popular STAND fanzine issue 94”
The internet was supposed to stop this from happening. The immediacy of messageboards and social media were supposed to kill us off. Yet, somehow, in an age that revolves around screens, our paper fanzine has soldiered on and made it to this remarkable point; issue 93 – our twentieth birthday. Continue reading “popular STAND fanzine issue 93”
New year, new start? Not as far as we’re concerned, so get set for the same old fanzine, at the same old price as issue 92 of popular STAND goes on sale at Doncaster Rovers’ home match with Plymouth Argyle, this Saturday. Continue reading “popular STAND fanzine issue 92”
It’s not a particularly funny issue of popular STAND fanzine, this one. It has its moments don’t get me wrong, and I don’t want to discredit those who’ve submitted lighter pieces, but I feel it’s only fair to call it up front. You’re good people, you deserve honesty, and likewise I deserve a break from the inevitable ‘it’s-not-as-funny-as-it-used-to-be’s that greet any request for feedback. It’s still good though, so don’t even think about asking for your pound back. You’ve committed now, roll with it. Continue reading “Editorial: We need to stop relying on football to get us through”
Typical, you wait ages for a fanzine, and then two issues come along in quick succession. It may only be a month since issue 90 of popular STAND, but we’re back again with another edition to soften the blow of having to face the sham of a club that is MK ‘Dons’. Continue reading “popular STAND fanzine issue 91”
Been thinking ‘it’s been a while since the last fanzine’? That’s because it is, but worry no longer, as to celebrate Rovers remembering how to win at home, we’ve got a new issue of popular STAND out. Yep, issue 90 of the FSF Award winning fanzine popular STAND is on sale at Doncaster Rovers’ home match with Walsall on Saturday.
A new season. Lush green grass, freshly marked lines. Short-sleeved shirts and cold pre-match beers. Optimism and hayfever in the air. Isn’t it? Wasn’t it? Marvelous. And if you weren’t already flush with excitement at the prospect of a new season, we’ve also got a new fanzine out as well. What a time to be alive. Issue 89 of the FSF Award winning fanzine popular STAND is on sale at Doncaster Rovers’ home match with Gillingham on Saturday.
