The Fanzine

Here are some excerpts from the Jags fanzine, originally named "Black and Red All Over" then renamed "18 Hours From Rotterdam" because that is how close the Jags came to being in the European Cup Winners Cup Final in 1985 !

The good natured humour inside was mostly aimed at our local rivals Caley and Clach. I've only highlighted some of the less controversial images from the fanzine, there are many more hilarious images that I don't dare show on this site for fear of legal action being taken against me !!!!!

I must also apologise to the editors of the fanzine as I have not had their permission to use their material, however I don't know their names so had no way of getting in touch. If you guys are reading this then I hope you don't mind.......some of your stuff is just too good not to be shown on here !

This is the front cover of the very first issue of the Jags fanzine "Black and Red All Over" produced in the summer of 1990 on a very tight budget!

This is my own personal favourite issue............. possibly due to the "Stone Roses"-esque cover !

More musical influence here, this time from "The Smiths", with some of the headings inside being borrowed from song titles.
