When Saturday Comes

Dear loyal readers can I urge you all (those of you who are based in the UK) to go out & spend £2.40 of your hard-earned cash on the April issue of WSC, a fine football publication, which comes out in all good (and doubtless some bad) newsagents today? gwan gwan gwan you know you want to.

why you might ask am I encouraging you to go out & buy this publication? well, there's a feature on Italian Ultras, and let's just say, you might recognise the views, analysis & writing style in one of the pieces... *little dance of childish excitement*

£2.40 !! What the hell do Simon Barnes, Matt Dickinson, Russel Kempson, etc, know about Italian football Ultras anyway ?

I'll go out tomorrow lunchtime and make the purchase with pleasure!

I don't think it's sold in this part of the mondo. Any other way I can get a copy? Online??
The parenti on via degli Scipioni are a bit tirchio and prob wouldn't send it over! I had to leave them 20euro to send on to Germany the Roman flag with the stendardo that I ordered when I was in Rome last year, and they pocketed about 15euro change!

Seriously? That's fantastic. I'll see if I can get it. Hope your not too disappointed with the result. At least I had a consolation in the form of a Kaka goal. Somehow though I'd rather Arsenal had gone through, they totally deserved it.

I read your article. mmm... football and politics, what an ugly combination.

I hope you got paid for it. Perhaps it may turn into a nice little regular slot/earner for you. Good luck to you...

TT.

Hey, brava, congratulazioni, and all that jazz! I doubt I'll find it in my neck of the woods, but I will look out for it. Are you on commission based on copies sold? If not, I may just browse the article in the shop!

Spangly, I have my copy now I just need to persuade wife and kids to let me read it. And I'd never have guessed your name!

I used to read WSC 10 years ago...

Time to get it again!

Read the article today, loved how you were able to capture great slices of Italian culture, sport and politics in a relatively short piece. One of the few articles I have read about Italy where I wasn't pulling my hair out about all the inaccuracies or stereotypes involved!

Write some more and I might go back to reading When Saturday Comes on a regular basis.

*curtsey* thank you all so much for your kind comments!

no commission, alas, so feel free to read it in WHSMith and then put it back... and Ginkers, don-t tell me that, tell them! demand they employ me regularly, hehe.
