The Saint (Vol 33 #8)
For those few of you fortunate enough to be here tonight, welcome back.
For those who are still watching from home, we are hoping to see you soon.
It's a sign of definitive change to have even 100 more fans in here tonight, and it hopefully won't be long before there will be many, many more.
The pilot matches in football, GAA and rugby seemed to have run smoothly, so hopefully, they can continue and grow in terms of ambition as we seek to reunite the two most important elements of our sport, the team and the fans.
To mark the occasion we have a massive 64-pageedition of the Saint tonight. I have to say, it will be great to hold a physical copy again at some stage, and while we will continue to do digital editions for all future games, I hope there will always be a print version too.
The demand is definitely there and I know collectors have really missed being able to add the issues from this and last season to their collections. It was not sustainable in any shape or form to print them.
However, if enough collectors really want to get some of our more recent editions printed, we could look at a premium print model if there was enough interest, although the cost will obviously be a good bit higher than our normal retail price. Please drop me an email if you're interested in this at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tonight is the pilot of our new streaming service, which I know so much work has gone into. I'm sure it will be great-the footage so far has me very optimistic!
Loads to read in these pages tonight, third part of Brian Kerr's fascinating musical journey through his life and career, an interview with Ian Gilzean, club history, Eurozone, stats, interviews, opinion and much more.
Settle down and enjoy. Oh yeah, let's remember that if results go our way tonight we could be second, or even joint top of the table, come on the Saints!!
We hope you enjoy this week's edition which you can read online or download the PDF version here.
