We review this weekend’s packed edition of The Blue Print.
This Saturday’s issue of The Blue Print is crammed full of great reading to keep you going right over the weekend, including an exclusive interview with Nathan Thomas who previews the clash with his former club.
Of course, this season we’re boasting the services of a brand new columnist in the shape of Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling – and this Saturday he shares what it’s like to follow Pools’ fortunes while you’re live on the television.
Also inside you can get the thoughts of boss Craig Hignett ahead of the game, as well as those of skipper Billy Paynter and the Club’s new Operations Director Mark Burrows.
Jordan Richards takes part in our popular Who Are Ya feature – find out why he doesn’t like animals, what his biggest pet hate is and which boxset has he and his team-mates hooked at the moment.
Antony Sweeney reflects on his debut for Pools in our Moment In Time feature, while Matty Robson is the subject of our column looking back on the 2006/07 promotion season ten years on.
Phil Dunn is back with his nostalgic look back on the 1990s at Pools, while Colin Foster delves deep in to the archives to study a Mansfield Town trip to the north-east back in 1984.
Add to that photos from our games against Newport County and Yeovil Town, as well as updates from the Academy and Community Sports Foundation and we reckon The Blue Print is great value for money.
Make sure you pick up your copy while stocks last on your way in to The Northern Gas and Power Stadium on Saturday.
