Our March issue is hitting the shelves as we write this, and you won’t want to miss out. Here’s why you should get it, NOW...

Title race special
We’ve got ourselves all excited about this season’s Premier League title race, seeing as it's one of the closest in years. But what do the players make of it all? We interview Berbatov, Nasri, Lampard and Silva to find out, and receive a fascinating insight from Chris Waddle into a certain Gareth Bale...

“We have a hostage situation”
Kidnapping isn’t a funny business, but it is a crazy one – especially when football is concerned. With victims including Johan Cruyff and Robinho’s mum, FFT discovers how two worlds can collide.

Chesterfield charge on
Their team is top of League Two, but you try getting a smile out of Spireites fans. “It’ll go wrong – it always does,” says one supporter. Cheer up!

One-on-One: Johnny Giles
The Leeds legend answers your questions. The Damned United may crop up...

Sun, sea and socc... er, football
Our look into England’s major title races takes a detour to the south coast, to see what all the fuss in League One is about around Brighton and Bournemouth.

From the mines to memory, Lofthouse won’t be forgotten. But we thought we’d make sure.
