The ninth domestic Steelmen Matchday Magazine of 2013/14 is on sale when Celtic visit tomorrow (Friday) night.
But what is inside the 68-page issue?
‘Well boss Stuart McCall and Captain Keith Lasley both return with the regular columns.
Picking up the pieces from last weekend’s Cup exit at the hands of Albion Rovers, McCall speaks about the hurt of going out and about his aims and objectives for the rest of this season.
The skipper chats about how flat the week has been and what the players have had to do to pick themselves up ahead of the visit of the current Premiership leaders.
The feature interview is with Estonian International Henri Anier. The former Sampdoria front man talks about his time in Scotland and how he is looking to draw on the experience of previous disappointments to help get over the Cup shock.
The on-loan front man also features as the next in the centre-page souvenir poster collection.
But that’s not where the features stop!
There is an 11-page section dedicated to our visitors, Celtic.
As ever, Ray Morrison introduces the Parkhead side and there’s a player-by-player breakdown of who is likely to line up for the Hoops.
We report from Tynecastle and Celtic’s 7-0 Scottish Cup win and former player Stephen Pearson, who played for both clubs, features in Graeme McGarry’s ‘Us and Them’ section.
The former Scotland midfielder talks honestly about some of the regrets he has about how his move from Fir Park was handled, his time at Celtic and what he still wants to achieve in his career.
The big features keep coming…
A new column – ‘Football from around the World’ from Ross Dunbar takes a look at the fascinating story of Egyptian side Al-Ahly, who against the odds managed to win the African Champions League despite turmoil in Cairo and a suspension of the domestic league in the country.
‘From the Press Box’ returns with a new host, the Herald’s Scott Mullen and the last of the first round matches is complete in ‘Eggheads’ as young defenders Fraser Kerr and Zaine Francis-Angol square off.
But wait, there’s more!
Our match reports section takes a look back at the 2-0 win over Kilmarnock two weeks ago. There’s also an in-depth report from the Under 20s disappointing Cup exit to the same team on the same ground.
We have the latest from The Ticket Office, Commercial and Community Departments, and update from the Well Society as well as the latest stats, facts and figures from the 2013/2014 campaign.
We also take a statistical look at the match official and celebrate the culmination of the ‘It’s a Goal’ mental health course run at the club. Also returning is the ‘Junior Steel’ kids page that will test the youngster’s quiz minds with puzzles and ‘Did you know’ facts.
The programme is available for £3 and is will be on sale from the Club Shop as well as the usual sellers located in and around the ground pre-match.
