About WFP
 

World Football Pages launched its first printed issue, May 2002, and never looked back, at least until economic uncertaintity led to the last printed issue, July 2005, after which we've done a lot of looking back. WFP continues to crawl about online, but the real glory was in the big, beautiful pages of hi-grade newsprint that reader, Charlie Wheater once referred to as "the best football paper I've ever read".

When the press stopped rolling, WFP was on newsstands across BC, shipped to hundreds of subscribers across the country, a few across the border, and one from Hong Kong! It was loved by those who loved football, loved laughing, appreciated honest, no-politics commentary and everything else we did to put a maple spin on the world's favourite game.  And we did such with a fantastic cast of contributing writers who never earned more than a bowl of cod pus soup for their efforts.

WFP was a youthful model of how a football rag should look and read, and only ever on the cusp of everlasting greatness. WFP's 'tell it like it is' mandate annoyed the establishment and failed to attract bigger sponsors who remained blind to its phenominal potential. There's a naysaying buggar in every corner but the undeniable truth is, in a sea of almost no options, WFP was a four-year bastion of the notion that Canadian footballers could be entertained and educated with wit, intelligence, honesty and a uniquely Canadian perspective on both our game, and the best of the world's favourite game.

It was just a thought!

Letters to WFP
 

If ever we needed a truly decent reason to build four years of World Football Pages, this was it. We loved getting letters from WFP readers, including those from people tearing us a new hole because, apparently, WFP was so awful they simply couldn't stop reading and were compelled to tell us otherwise. For better of worse, letters were an absolutely glorious opportunity to mercilessly take the piss out of anyone brave enough to write. Many did, and every WFP anniversary we'd compile our favourites into a 'best of' page or two, which you'll find below. Select a thumbnail to open beautiful PDF versions of the original printed pages and re-live the carnage!

BUILD IT AND THEY WILL LEAVE
There's a bright idea, we thought... build a nice links page so anyone dropping by is encouraged to leave right away. So we did, and we hope you'll drop by to leave again real soon.
