Watch out, here comes The Blizzard

The Blizzard, a quarterly digital soccer publication, hopes to “break the shackles” of mainstream media constraints by offering more in-depth pieces on a wide spectrum of subjects – and for a price of our choosing.

In Issue Zero, launched with little fanfare and featuring some well known writers, you’ll find an interesting look back to MLS new boys Portland Timbers’ debut season in the NASL in 1975; why the away goals rule should be abolished in two legged Champions League affairs; and how Bayern Munich legend Uli Hoeness – whose career was curtailed due to injury — has become a sausage magnate.

The Blizzard  provides us with 25 contributions in total, crammed into 188 photo-free pages, neither magazine nor book.

And the price? Well, that’s up to you, as the publishers are asking you to pay whatever you think their product is worth, not too dissimilar to the path Radiohead ventured down with its In Rainbows album in 2007.
