Bill Biss

STAND started out as the fanzine, Stand Against Modern Football in late 2012 and has, since dropping the #AMF tag gone on to become a bi-monthly publication, currently on its 14th issue and available in digital and original print formats. Winner of the Football Supporter’s Federation Fanzine of the Year in 2013, and nominated again in 2014, STAND, the actual ‘zine, the website and lively social media channels are a home for disillusioned football fans of all clubs and all nations to bemoan the state of modern football, constructively or indeed, otherwise. Bill was an early contributor who took over as editor in 2013, despite, or because of being a fan of a club not tarnished by the Premier League’s millions, Yeovil Town.
