"One thing the transition from Peace to Lai might do, at least temporarily, is maintain Pulis’s own position. Peace has been more patient with him than he was with Steve Clarke and Alan Irvine, while Albion fans are at best apathetic towards him. Many are alienated by the coach’s apparent suspicion of “flair” players such as Berahino, Callum McManaman and the departed Stéphane Sessègnon, and there were significant numbers of empty seats at the Everton game"

Badge of the week ~ FK Srsni Kratonohy, Czech Republic

Briefed with producing an intimidating creature with gangster leanings for this badge, the designer went through several drafts. The first, a horsefly dressed as a New York pimp, was not thought to be readily identifiable and was passed over...

"Season ticket sales and attendances have fallen dramatically while the atmosphere at home games veers between stunned silence and intense anger as followers lose any sense of optimism for a season only just under way, while protests during matches merely add to the gloom surrounding the club"

"The 1991-92 season began with the entire playing squad being put up for sale, with the club going on the market not long after. In a bizarre interlude, a group of north-east businessmen attempted to buy the club and merge them with Newcastle Blue Star of the Northern League"

The organisers have so far failed to find anyone in the Pikes Lane area, where Bolton played when the goal was scored, willing to house the plaque, and are now planning to hold an event on September 8 to encourage residents to embrace the project
A plaque commemorating Kenny Davenport's goal for Bolton Wanderers against Derby County in 1888, the Football League's first goal, has been created but no local residents are so far willing to house it

"How you survive as a professional footballer if you are “different” is another of the central themes of Oliver Kay’s often poignant biography. And “the Doc” was different – from the usual apprentices with their hair gel, designer clothes and desire to conform. The book begins with him, scruffy in second-hand clothes, busking outside the Arndale Centre, assaulting the eardrums of passersby with an off-key rendition of Bob Dylan’s Like a Rolling Stone"

The Half Decent Football Magazine
Introduction
When Saturday Comes is Britain's leading independent football magazine. Launched in 1986, it aims to provide a voice for intelligent football supporters, offering both a serious and humorous view of the sport. WSC has always sought to include contributions from readers as well as a number of football journalists and award-winning authors. In each issue we aim to cover most of the major topics that fans are likely to talk about.

Within two years of its launch, WSC had developed from a bi-monthly, photocopied, hand-stapled production into a monthly magazine with national distribution. WSC also helped to publicise the hundreds of club fanzines that sprang up around this time. It is estimated that such publications were selling a total of more than a million copies each year by 1989.

Our public profile increased off the back of regular media publicity, such as that generated by a trip organised by the magazine to Senegal for the 1992 African Nations Cup, subsequent Nations Cups in Tunisia and South Africa, and the South American championship in Ecuador in 1993. The magazine increased in size to 48 pages and went full colour in early 1995.

During the mid-1990s boom in football publishing, When Saturday Comes established a niche in the then crowded magazine market. WSC has become recognized as a source of informed comment on all aspects of British football, featuring on major current affairs programming and in newspapers in this country and on radio and television around Europe.

Among the many When Saturday Comes books are the first English language histories of football in Spain and Germany and a book of football writing co-produced with Nick Hornby, author of Fever Pitch. A recent book, Up Front, collected together our favourite WSC covers. In addition we have produced and marketed a number of popular T-shirts.

Alongside the printed magazine WSC has an expanding website. Over 20 years' worth of content is being archived online. We also comment daily on football issues and assemble a weekly newsletter which delivers despair and enlightenment to your inbox every Friday. 

But don't just take our word for it – the Guardian and the Independent both wrote features around the magazine's 25th anniversary in March 2011.
