Issue 29 of Soccer History magazine is now available and has been posted to subscribers. The contents include the following:

With the 2012 London Olympics nearly upon us we look back to 1948 and the Indian Olympic team that attracted attention for the fact that most of the players appeared barefooted, but also for the quality of their play.

Dil Porter takes a look at the opinions on football of contributors to The Economist in the period 1960 to 2000, providing some background to views on the recent history of the business side of the game.

Part 8 of our statistical journey through Scottish football in World War Two looks at the North-eastern League for 1943-44 … includes details of appearances and goalscorers for each team in the competition.

David Wood takes a detailed look at the early history of football in Bristol and the various grounds that hosted senior football.

Jan Michael Kendall offers an analysis of the role played by national newspapers in creating an image of football hooliganism during the 1960s.

Dave Juson reviews the evidence for the Southampton ‘whisper’ which dates back to the 1890s and is one of the earliest chants heard on football grounds.

Finally, in our resources section we look at The Footballer magazine which was published between 1988 and 1996.

Plus we have our usual book listings and reviews, and a comprehensive obituaries section.
