  1. This is from the email sent to subscribers last August: "Quick update about Issue 101 which was originally due out in April but will now roll forward beyond 2019/20. As the last subscription covered five issues up to and including Issue 101, this is confirmation that you will receive it whenever it finally comes out - which will most likely be when supporters are allowed back at matches as normal. The ideal situation is to be able to do a normal print run and still be able to sell the usual number at Ewood so it's a case of being patient at the moment." UPDATE 07/04/21: There was a tempta
  2. ‘Easy’ – The Mick Heaton Story. On the 25th anniversary of his untimely passing, this is a great tribute by Rob Sawyer (who also wrote the Roy Vernon book ‘Blue Dragon’). https://www.toffeeweb.com/season/19-20/comment/history/39422.html
  3. 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!?
  4. Haha, thanks very much for buying then! Initials are LB, ZK, JM and GF!
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. Oops! Glad to say the play-off final is correctly referenced in our issue...
  8. ISSUE 100! It's only taken us 30 years to get there! We've put together a memorable 48-page special edition which celebrates this significant milestone and it's still just £1.50. To order your copy please visit our ONLINE SHOP, or to purchase through eBay CLICK HERE. Season subscriptions are also STILL AVAILABLE HERE for just £9.00 (includes P&P) which gets you all five issues from 97 to 101. If you prefer grabbing a copy in person, the fanzine will be sold outside Ewood before the forthcoming home games from an hour before kick-off (at the bottom of Kidder Street). Issue 100 inc
  9. If you need any more convincing to purchase this excellent book, then there are some great extracts included in Issue 99 of 4,000 Holes as tasters. It's the perfect Christmas combo for your coffee table!?
  10. Thank you to everyone who has purchased Issue 99 so far - a fantastic 260 copies shifted over the first weekend. It's still available to buy via the links above and before the Christmas home matches. Feedback always welcomed too before we gear up for Issue 100!!
  11. Issue 99 is here! For just £1.50, we've got a bumper 40-page fanzine to keep you entertained over the festive period. It includes a concoction not to be found anywhere else, such as a celebration of goals scored AGAINST Rovers, a 1190-word homage to Bengali-Fodé Koita, an examination of cult Rovers stickers, the discovery of a Rovers fan in Zambia and an answer to the VAR offside problem – footballers minus an arm. There’s plenty of other stuff too including: Fan Column Bingo, From The Terraces, The Very Strange Rovers Job Advert, Rhodri the Dragon’s ‘Voice From The Valleys’, Saturday Kitchen
  12. Simon is a thoroughly respected commentator on the Rovers from the fanzine's perspective. Massively grateful that he went to the effort of getting quotes from the likes of Terry Gennoe, Mick Rathbone, Mick Speight and other teammates for his wonderful 2000-word tribute to Kevin Stonehouse in Issue 97 earlier this season. This was followed up by another brilliant piece about John Lowey last month.
  13. Great call and possibly a forgotten event by some. From Issue 91 of 4,000 Holes: Rovers 1–1 Man United (May 2011) And so to the Nichtangriffspakt von Ewood – yet another shameful episode during the Steve Kean era which happened blatantly in front of our eyes and the Sky TV cameras as United won a record-equalling 19th league title at Ewood. That it should happen on the most significant date in our modern-day his­tory (14th May) is a further blemish as United were allowed to parade to the title without a single challenge made by Rovers. In the penultimate game of the 2010-11 se
