Former Sunderland Fanzine Editor Releases New Ebook

Former Sunderland fanzine editor, Mal Robinson, has released a new eBook entitled “Attack! Attack! Attack! The story of football, business and war”, 10 years on since the launch of his first book – “From Afghanistan to Temazepam.”

Robinson was editor of retro Sunderland magazine, Seventy3, which was published from 2011 to 2014, with 21 issues produced in total. The magazine featured a guest editor each issue and included the likes of Micky Gray, Peter Reid, Jimmy Montgomery and Djibril Cisse, to name a few.

He penned his original book, whilst on tour with the RAF in Kandahar, Afghanistan in 2007, as he kept diary notes, with Roy Keane’s charges mounting their promotion push at the time. The new eBook “Attack!” is a summary of the decade since, as Robinson explains. “A friend of mine noticed it had been 10 years since the original Afghanistan book was published and suggested it might be an idea to produce a kind of catch up, in what has happened since. The idea gathered pace and I decided to release a mini eBook focussing on the three main elements of my life since Afghan. That was football, in which I have included the forming of Seventy3 Magazine and the memories of producing a fanzine and all the behind the scenes run ins with the club and relationship with Ellis Short, the next element was military life since Afghanistan and my further two tours in Iraq and the last chapter is on business and an array of roles I have held since leaving the RAF in 2011.”
