Rant Monthly Issue 1 – August 2011

August 1, 2011 Tags: Monthly 16 comments

Welcome to Rant Monthly, our high-quality mix of original Rant editorial that comes to you, well, monthly! In time for the new season Rant Monthly Issue 1 offers a comprehensive preview of the new first team and reserve/academy season, a look at the summer transfer market, Andy Green’s analysis of why Sky’s cash might be bad for English football and Fan Forum, together with our regular columnists.

Issue 1 is available in two flavours for your reading pleasure: high and low image quality. Right click > “save as” below. For those PDF afficianados, Rant Monthly is best read like a magazine, two-up, showing cover page (View > Page Display)

  • High quality – It’s a big file but worth every megabyte.
  • Low quality – If your bandwidth constraints are tighter than Uncle Malcy’s wallet.

Your feedback on Issue 1 is very welcome: what works, what doesn’t, what regular content would you like to see in future issues? We had a lot of ideas for Issue 1 that didn’t make the final cut due to time constraints. Please comment below.

I like the way it looks, it’s almost “professional”.

Not being a fan of Nani’s, I could wish that you had used someone else’s photo to grace the cover of the inaugural issue, but that is a minor quibble. The photos do indeed give the magazine a professional look; will later issues continue to feature a “page 12 girl”?

Rob – well I played around with the cover a fair bit but he was the player of the year last season so it seemed appropriate. Page 12 – yeah captainhormone has signed up to show off his tits in the next edition.

I understand that the last time Cap let the girls be photographed for a paper, readers mistook them for Jordan’s.

yeah..pg 12

and fuck off alf before you start with double page spread nonsense

ed..you should do a joint interview with me and alf, or red or sid etc etc….that would be funny, vitriolic, surreal and informative too.

Deffo. You should get a few of us on your Rantcast too, Ed. It would be glorious… and not broadcastable.

Btw, the PDF looks really good. Well impressed.

Well, you’ve definitely got the tits for it, but you’ve got a face like Fred Flintstone.

“Badges, to god-damned hell with badges! We have no badges. In fact, we don’t need badges. I don’t have to show you any stinking badges, you god-damned cabrón and ching’ tu madre! Come out from that shit-hole of yours. I have to speak to you.”

Great job guys, it looks amazing. I’d be surprised if you keep that kind of quality up for the rest of the season!

One area to improve, though – a few spelling errors here and there could be avoided by getting more people to proof read it for you.

J-Diz – if you’re offering help I’ll take it!

J-Diz - August 3, 2011 Reply

Why the hell not? I’m guessing ou can see my email address from this post, so next time you want something proofed send it my way.
