United We Stand issue 218, a 56 page summer special costing £3, is currently on sale in newsagents worldwide and their official website. The cover artwork, as you can see, was heavily influence by John Squire (guitarist for The Stone Roses) with a picture of Antonio Valencia splattered with paint.
For the price of £3 you get more than your money’s worth. The summer edition contains interviews with Sir Alex Ferguson, Rio Ferdinand, Louis Saha and The Happy Mondays member Gaz Whelan. Of course, we cannot forget about the 12 prominent Reds, surprisingly including myself, that we asked questions on last season, United’s transfer targets and the upcoming campaign.
