Support us in our quest for 264 subscribers before RedNews264 in August 2019 at https://fundrazr.com/rednewsfanzine2019

Last year, for 2018/19, we set a target of 254 and an incredible 389 Manchester United fans stepped forward during pre-season to support your fanzine.

The reason we do this - we're just a normal fanzine without any big business behind us - is to ensure we continue. Founded in 1987, bound by print, but now also available by pdf and in digital format as well, with the whole point of this campaign so that the fanzine can survive and flourish for its next season ahead without fear. It's vital we can plan ahead without worrying month by month. With sales at the ground affected by weather and a change in culture, 'is that the programme, no', we are an independent unofficial Manchester United supporters' fanzine which no longer can survive on just selling at matches, and we have to adapt to that change.

The advanced subscriptions protect us, which sees you the readers receive the fanzine for the following season, all 10 editions from August-May, and ensures the survival of Red News for another year. Thank you


“There were so many special moments along the way, but probably the most special was the night we won the title against Aston Villa,”

“When I look back on the best moments of my career, that night ranks very high.

“Before the game, Wayne and I had a little chat on the pitch, and we talked to each other about him finding me in behind the Villa defence. We’d worked on it in training, too. There are a few things that have to come together, though, from the moment Wayne hits the pass.

“First, you’re making a run for your space. Then, when you’ve finally got your space, you have to count your steps, because if my last step is too big or too small then I can’t really connect right. I have to have a quick look to see roughly where the ball will go. Then, just before I hit it, I need to have another look because I know already where the goal is. Of course, the pass has to be right as well.

“It’s basically like taking a golf shot, but you’re doing it on the run. You have to get five or six things exactly right at once: the pass, the movement, the steps, the connection, the direction. You need a bit of luck too because if one thing is slightly off, the ball doesn’t go in. Everything came together in that moment.

“You practise these things, you plan them, but when it comes off in a game like that, in the way it did, that’s what you dream of.

“For me, that goal was a dream.”
