    I always buy my KING OF THE KIPPAX
    And wouldn't feel right going through the season without it.
    MY son and grandson enjoy them too.

    I love this mag and am proud to say I had an article published that won a prize of Holland's pies about the state of the bogs at Old Trafford.

    Wasn’t their a fanzine called blueprint as well..have a vague recollection of a vinal being attached to one addition with a rehashed version of bluemoon with the commentary of the 5-1 at Maine road mixed into it..

    A friend of mine has it sent to Sweden each month so I guess it can be sent anywhere in the world.

    I must confess I rely on the internet and MEN for most of my City diet nowadays. However I must agree KOTK has been a great read with much insightful stuff written. Dave and Sue are two of the nicest people you could meet and a fantastic achievement to be going so long.

    I have been an occasional contributor to KK and having run fanzines myself in the 70s and 80s, I know what a back-breaking, soul-destroying, thankless, relentless task Dave & Sue undertake. I's fine to say that Electric Blue or others might have been better, but you're just seeing the past through rose-tinted specs - they weren't. And they are mere shooting stars compared to what KK has achieved. Is it perfect? No - it's an amateur fanzine, run to break even and if it makes Dave & Sue enough profit for a few beers then it would be a small price to pay. The idea that it is in any terms, competing with the official programme is ludicrous - the quality of writing is infinitely higher in KK than the sales brochure which masquerades as the modern day programme. And it is a fans' perspective not a club perspective - as with most fans, you might not agree with them, but it's the basis for an extended debate not a slanging match.

    No other fanzine has been going as long and in an internet world there will never be an equivalent ever again. I think Dave & Sue should be knighted for services to football culture when they finally hang up their typewriters.

    Very true and from someone who ran the best every fanzine.
