Make sure you’re the first kid in your street to own THE FOX ANNUAL No2… it’s out now!
The Fox Fanzine followed the contrasting fortunes of Leicester City for 35 years from 1987 to 2022. This timespan saw the lows of five relegation seasons, including a debut dip into the third tier and a period in administration – but, more importantly, we were also there for the highs of five promotions, a Premier League title, a journey to the Champions League quarter-finals and the lifting of the FA Cup trophy that had long eluded the club. Through the good times and the bad, we always tried to see the funny side.
And now here we are in the middle of another giant rollercoaster ride, moving at breakneck speed on the way back up (we hope!) after a period of sickening freefall. THE FOX ANNUAL No2 reflects all our current optimism and obsessions, plus you’ll find some old favourite features. Here are revealing interviews with past heroes David Oldfield and Paul Friar, plus 100 Objects, Get With the Programme, Fanatical Frank, Rewind, Foxed in the Head, FiftySomething, and John Hutchinson’s dip into the club archives.
A splendid time is guaranteed for all, but best hold on tight. UP THE CITY!
