is a quarterly football (soccer) journal that covers an eclectic range of subjects which don't usually receive much mainstream coverage. Issue 3 is out, and features, among other things, articles on the demise of Spartak Moscow, a World War One internment camp that shaped the development of the game in Europe, how nationalism shaped the rise and fall of Beitar Jerusalem and how Dawson's Creek explains modern football. It is edited by Jonathan Wilson, of "Inverting The Pyramid" fame, and it's writers include Tim Vickery, Barney Ronay and Gabriele Marcotti.
If you're feeling rich, it's available in dead-tree format, but also as a download (pdf, mobi or epub). At nearly 200 pages, each issue is more like a book than a magazine. And although there is a suggested price of £3 for the download, you can pay whatever you like for it.
