Piece in the LT on it, which is great publicity... yet they drop this clanger

The 1989 play off final second leg at Palace is probably one of most infamous ever games!

Oops! Glad to say the play-off final is correctly referenced in our issue...

Thank you to everyone who bought a copy of Issue 100 at the match yesterday. Including those posted out, 330 copies have been sold already which is absolutely superb for the first weekend. Feedback always welcomed!

More will be available to purchase on Kidder Street before the next couple of home games and they're still online here too

And an enjoyable read it is too. I would recommend it to anybody who follows Rovers and only £1.50.

Excellent read that arrived in the frozen tundra in timely fashion. 
 

I was a bit piss poor at the Just Look at Them Now Quiz, getting just one of them! Although #2 is clearly a young Lionel Jeffreys, he of The Railway Children and Two-Way Stretch.

Thanks for ordering from over there! And cheers for the feedback - never sure how easy or hard these quizzes have been - maybe it'll be SLIGHTLY easier next time. We'll see!

Never mind those pictures what about the Crossword! Some difficult questions there! 
Well done on this issue though; a fabulous read. Great addition to my collection of Rovers literature!

Thank you, it means a lot. Really proud of this issue. Crossword possibly trickier than normal too - got to give a challenge to those who have crazy encyclopedic knowledge of the most obscure Rovers players out there!?
