The Long Ball Issue Three – Live Now!

Hello once more!

It’s been about six months since Issue Two and frankly you can blame my old laptop’s implosion and my lack of disposable income for that. The original August release date got pushed back and with changes in my personal circumstances, I was able to gain a laptop but lose almost all of my free time. But that’s plenty from me, you’re here to see what’s in store from Issue Three.

Our cover star this time around is Antonio Cassano. Find a more colourful career than Cassano’s and it’s probably a film script. In the space of one career he’s been the world’s most expensive teenager, lost and rediscovered his form more times than anyone can care to mention, developed a sex addiction, gained and lost weight by season and frustrated as much as he has dazzled.

Elsewhere, Jack Wills returns with two pieces this time around.

Secondly, he takes a look at the surprising departure of England’s number one Joe Hart to Serie A’s Torino. Where does Hart go from here? Is there a future for him? Find out Jack’s thoughts in Issue Three…

We also are delighted to welcome Matt Gunn to the magazine as well as he talks about the issues surrounding Wayne Rooney‘s England future. He may be the last link to the “Golden Generation” but he’s not exactly universally beloved for a nation’s top scorer ever and captain. Read Matt’s views inside…

But that’s not all! We have the customary Where Are They Now? featuring an Ajax side trying to make history and Cult Heroes which this month looks at a Georgian midfielder beloved on Tyneside and at Dens Park and there’s some Englishmen in Serie A too.
