A smashing football mag, one of Future's few successes outside the worlds of videogames and needlecraft, and one never scared to provoke the odd barrage of hatemail.

OFFSIDE - WHO NEED IT? - October 1996
Surprisingly controversial feature calling for the banning of offside. I say "surprisingly" because I'm usually well aware when I'm writing something everyone's going to be up in arms about, but I genuinely believed this would be a populist piece. Turns out everyone really likes offside, enjoys nothing more than watching flowing attacking football brought to a grinding halt because someone was a bootlace-width nearer the goal-line than someone else. Who'd have thought?

Pissing into the wind.
